* AmbiguouslyGay[=/=][[Main/{{Asexual}} Ambiguously Asexual]]: Mr. Morton has no children, and one of the characters who knew him says in chapter 6: "Felix never had much luck with women. No surprises there", but never elaborates on that. Then again, it is a young woman that Mr. Morton sees in his recurring dreams, so it may be just as likely that he is straight, but has some serious issues in the sexual sphere.

The Center of Dreams is also marked on the dreamworld map. Obviously, it would be catastrophic if the Dream Machine were to reach it, but there's no way for it to do that... right?]]
