As I was reading Rainbows End I had an epiphany. I was thinking about Robert Gu an the transformation that he was going through when I realized that the software that Robert and others wore was called "Epiphany". I thought it was an odd name.
I related it back to literature and the journey that characters often go through. At some point in any story characters have epiphanies: an awakening, an understanding, or a rebirth. In our lives the light blubs in our minds go off as we realize something and as we change. The Epiphany technology allow those in Rainbows End to have access to all sorts of knowledge. Robert Gu's epiphany was when he realized the change that he had gone through. He was no longer the same man he was before.
Those were some of the epiphanies that I noticed. What were some that you noticed?
