The Ulms

The Ulms are a religious group of people who believe God commanded them to doubt his existence. They have been on the verge of extinction for thousands of years and have been so secret that most people have never heard of them. They seek out “reclaimants” who are descended from members of the tribe but are no longer living among the Ulms. Paul is one of those.

The Me-Machine

This is what Paul calls the cell phones. Paul has a love/hate relationship with technology and claims that he hates that everyone spends so much time on the “me-machine,” but he also finds that he can't do without it.

The Cantevicles

These are the books governing the Ulms and containing the history of the people. They resemble the Bible in some ways except that they command that their people doubt God's existence.
