Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children- time loops and parallel universes or lack-there-of
The Universe created by Ransom Riggs in the series of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one built on the manipulation of time where the secret residents of the world, peculiars, live in time loops where they live the same day over and over again in a particular spot. Peculiars are aware of this and and may go about the day however they’d like and the future beyond that fixed point would never be changed and the day is always reset so that each morning is the same. How might this contradict or relate to the belief that time is either linear or circular? Are these loops directly related to time or are they more like a parallel universe? Is the universe in this series a parallel universe in itself?
