Time Loops or Evolution Over Time in Recursions

Figuring out if time flows--or loops--in Strange worlds seeded by fiction can be tricky.

How does time flow in recursions seeded by specific fictions—does a recursion evolve and generate history, like on Earth, or does it remain static, like a novel on a shelf?

The answer is both. Some recursions remain static—true to the narrative that seeded them into the Strange. No matter how often a recursor visits, they never seem to change or vary from the fiction they’re based on.

Others evolve, deviate from their original fictional basis, and generate history of their own.
