There are at least three layers to the book.
The multiple characters represent a living entity as seen as different people living in several decades, during important phases in its life, eg. the stages of its education and its career, at pivotal moments.
The characters are 'all one'.
The mechanism by which the characters engage, support and encourage each other is called Co-Activity, where we hold each other to be creative, resourceful and whole. Some of the skills and tools of the Co-Active professions (teaching, parenting, leadership etc) are apparent in the interactions between the characters.
The destination, which I have never voiced so clearly before, is called 'A Teal Learning Organisation'. The stories show how the characters in such organisations collaborate, in a Co-Active way!
