Imagine our present, but with something amiss: if The Beatles didn’t exist; if we lived in a state of complete surveillance. Playing around with uchrony, parallel universes, and alternate realities, we consider how fiction can function as a kind of thought experiment for reality, and what these hypothetical considerations reveal about our present.
