Inconsistent Time Differences
- The different ways in which Island time correspond to the outside world's time are a reference to the Narnia books, in which the ratio of time between Narnia and our world are continually inconsistant. When Regina fires the payload, there is a 31 minute difference between the two timers. Here, time on the Island seems to be behind time in the outside world. Yet in The Shape of Things to Come, Ray's body washes up on the Island, while the people on the Kahana apparently believe him to be find, suggesting that in this case, time on the Island is ahead of outside time. Charlotte's name, a reference to C.S. Lewis, is a clue to understanding this. Author C.S. Lewis's Narnia books included a universe whose time didn't pass in a constant ratio to the time of our universe, but always fluctuated. In the Narnia books, one year in our world corresponded to 1000 years in Narnia, while subsequently a year or two in our world corresponded to only 80 or so years in Narnia. In both Narnia and the Island, it seems that the time ratio is never fixed, and always fluid.
