Furthermore, Garland appeared during the New York Comic-Con and he explained the reason behind the creation of the series. He said that he read about more science than anything else and it began with two things. One of the many things that were around this principle of determinism, it was basically said that everything that happens in the world is based on cause and effect.
He further said that one of them is that it takes away free will, but on the other is that if you are at a powerful computer, you can determinism to predict the future as well as understand the past. If you could unravel everything about you, like why you prefer a cup of coffee to tea then five seconds before you said you would like to have a cup of coffee one would be able to predict you would ask for it.
