The “The“ in the name is to be ignored. There are quite a few threads. Anyway, a Thread is a timeline. It contains every place and event that has occurred in it‘s timeline. Each Thread has it’s own color, and there are no Threads with the same color as others. Those who access a Thread of their own timeline may use it as space and time travel, and those who discover a Thread of a different timeline they will be vaporized. However, very few humans have made it to either. Anyway, there is a species that have made it to the Threads. They’re humanoids. Not much else is known. Also, Threads are created by Chunky Cheese, and he uses soup to add new events and places. After a LOT of time, they begin to show signs of damage and fall apart due to the amount of soup that has been poured on them. They can be repaired if Chunky Cheese notices they're damaged, which he does for he is all seeing.
