** [[spoiler: Frobisher hopes that this will be the fate of himself and Sixsmith. Considering that the entire plot is about reincarnation, not the afterlife, this may be either false hope or they could be together in another timeline. Interestingly (in the film at least), they both die the same way - with a gun in their mouth.]]

** InUniverse: The movie adaptation of ''The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish'' as watched by Sonmi. Tom Hanks plays the look-alike of Cavendish, looking much differently, delivers his famous "criminal abuse" line much more eloquently, and writes his biopic with a early 2000's laptop, while the real Cavendish wrote his with an old-fashioned typewriter.

** Subverted with Ewing. When Frobisher mentions he's reading his diary entries, he calls him a "dying man," leading the viewer to believe he will die on the journey. He ''is'' dying [[spoiler:but only because he's being poisoned by Goose. Autua saves him and he's nursed back to health properly.]]

** Also changed by the adaption: the book is more invested in the idea of slavery and freedom; the film is more invested in the idea of racial divides and harmony- although multiple themes are present in both works.
* ArcWords: There are all kinds of repeated references across the six eras. Hydras, feeding ducks, a "crocodile" of people, eating soap, cannibalism, etc. Frobisher's "Cloud Atlas Sextet" follows the same pattern the novel does, and he associates each of the six movements of his piece with an instrument.
