Chapter 16 Summary

Only a few hours out of Midland City, Kilgore rides along in silence and skims through Now It Can Be Told. The novel is written as a lengthy letter from the creator of the universe to the reader. The novel develops the theme that all of existence is a deterministic machine and that free will does not exist - except for the reader. Even the creator of the universe is a pre-programmed machine. But the reader can do whatever the reader desires, spontaneously, for no reason or any reason. The reader's behaviors even mystify the creator of the universe.
