In Gateway to Reality there are two worlds: one very much like the one we live in, and one that exists when Wes goes to sleep, in his dreams. The Logiverse is much like our world, ruled by order and the laws of physics. After a malfunction, Wes is exposed to the truth—this world ruled by logic is actually a virtual place that exists only in his mind.
It’s only then that he discovers the true nature of reality, the place in his dreams known as simply the Existence.
The Nature of the Existence
Ruled by chaos, the Existence doesn’t always obey typical laws like, oh, say gravity for one. On the surface it’s eerily similar to our world, yet crazy things can (and do) happen at any time with no rhyme or reason. Wes recognizes familiar places like the Chicago and Kansas City he knows, but he soon realizes that nothing is quite as it seems. Disorder lies just beneath the surface, waiting to break free at any moment.
People are different there, too. Wes is surprised to find nearly identical copies of the best friends and sibliings he’s known from the Logiverse, but there are slight—and sometimes severe—variations. The most extreme is Emily, his Logiverse girlfriend, who doesn’t even know him in the Existence.
For a free-spirited artistic type like Wes, the Existence might seem like a valued reprieve from the rigid structure of normal life. Instead, it awaits him as a dark and frightening reality—one he’s not sure he wants to live in.
