However, this future was derailed by his girlfriend's unexpected pregnancy and the birth of a son. Now a professor at a tiny Chicago college with a warm and loving family life, the physicist is abducted into a universe in which his quantum many-worlds theory has become a fully realized technology for inter-dimensional transport. In the alternative universe, he never married his fiancée, and they never had a son. He is determined to reclaim his former life.
