My title “Named After All Of Them” comes from the writing of William James who first coined the term ‘stream of consciousness’. In his work Principles of Psychology he wrote, “We name our thoughts simply, each after its thing, as if each knew its own thing and nothing else. What each really knows is clearly the thing it is named for, with dimly perhaps a thousand other things. It ought to be named after all of them, but it never is.”

How wonderful that a story could be built on science (our moon did used to be closer to us, and moves farther away every year) yet journey so far into the imagination!
