[[WMG: Okabe is a [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lord]]]]
...And the Microwave Ophone/Time Leap Machine is his TARDIS. Because we need one of these theories! Also, Kurisu is his companion.

But wait the book was set in 1984? Well the main character Winston said that he isn't even certain of the date and it may just be 1984, it could be actually 1985, 1999 or 2036. INGSOC just says its 1984 therefore its true.

In which superpowers do not exist, Moist eats more (Presumably because everything he eats is no longer inherently moist) and learned to hack, everyone lives in Japan except Captain Hammer [[TooDumbToLive who didn't get the memo about the alternate universe]] and Penny is even more scientifically savvy than Billy.

[[WMG: Steins Gate is set in the same universe as Literature/NineteenEightyFour]]
INGSOC is linked or is an offshoot of SERN in the Alpha timeline. [[spoiler: According to Suzuha she came from]] 2036, a dystopia. The world is controlled by SERN (INGSOC) where invasive surveillance is widespread and free will is suppressed. The Rounders are the Thought Police and the Valkyrie, [[spoiler: the resistant group Suzuha is a part of]], is the Brotherhood. Emmanuel Goldstein could have been the main figure of the Europe chapter of Valkyrie. In this timeline INGSOC controls the whole world and Eastasia and Eurasia does not exist even though the INGSOC says they do exist and is at war at least one country at a time.

In the Beta Timeline, INGSOC has lesser control but still governs a dystopian government. Dr. Nakabachi [[spoiler: sells the time machine paper to Russia, which will be later be known as Eurasia]]. [[spoiler: Suzuha]] lives in Eastasia where an ideology roughly translated as death worship is promoted. It is said in the book the the ideology is essentially the same as INGSOC.

But wait the book was set in 1984? Well the main character Winston said that he isn't even certain of the date and it may just be 1984, it could be actually 1985, 1999 or 2036. INGSOC just says its 1984 therefore its true.

* This is pretty thoroughly debunked in the sequel which has other viewpoint characters, things happening when he's not around and scenes from the past and future. Trying to dismiss everything as delusions gets into ItWasAllADream territory.

** As it was a flashback to Okabe telling off some creeps who were harassing Ruka, I interpreted that line more as, "You can dress how you want and look like whatever you want and those guys shouldn't be picking on you for it, no matter what gender you are," rather than Okabe saying he's attracted to Ruka no matter what. His BigBrotherInstinct extends to more than just Mayuri, apparently.

[[WMG: Various examples of BlandNameProduct in the show have an in-universe explanation.]]
In order to create a timeline where the events of the series don't occur and are but a fictional tale, someone retroactively changed the names of CERN, IBM and Dr. Pepper.

Think about it. Okabe CONSTANTLY drinks Dr. Pepper. He then discovers a time machine he accidentally created, unfurling a series of events that lead to Mayuri dying over and over again and Okabe nearly breaking himself trying to save her. That is definitely the worst that could happen, Dr. Pepper.
