Alflolol and Technorog

Alflolol and Technorog are the names for the planet. They are symbolic of the different focuses of the two races of people who call the planet home.

The natives who call the planet Alflolol are focused on enjoying life. They have no concept of work. The name Alflolol contains "lol," which is used today in text messages and social media for "laughing out loud." Thus, it is appropriate that the fun loving natives call the planet Alflolol. Ironically, the book was written in the 1970s, long before technology.

Likewise, during the 1970s, a popular television series titled "Alf" shared the life of a happy-go-lucky, funny alien named Alf who lived with his human family. The title Welcome to Alflolol could be referring to that series.

The Earth people call the planet Technorog, which is symbolic of their focus on technology and industry.
