Question. What does the third level refer to?
Answer. The third level refers to a railway station in the Grand Central Terminal at New York, USA. In reality there is no third level as there are only two levels but, in the story, the third level serves as a portal leading to the past. There’s no logic behind that except the fact that it helps in some sort of time travel which is theoretically possible.
Question. Would Charley ever go back to the ticket-counter on the third level to buy tickets to Galesburg for himself and his wife?
Answer. It entirely depends on chance. If he could locate the third level then he will surely go for he is fascinated by the idea of settling in the past as money taken from the present to the past can have a reverse impact on devaluation of currency and make him rich in the past. Till the end of the story he is not able to achieve that.
Question. What is a first day cover?
Answer. A first day cover is a new stamp with the post mark pasted on an envelope containing a blank paper.

Question. “The modern world is full of insecurity, fear, war, worry and stress.’ What are the ways in which we attempt to overcome them?
Answer. The different ways by which we attempt to overcome them are by hallucinating, taking psychedelic drugs (LSD), making virtual friends online, taking part in death defying adventure sports, watching movies, taking part in various cultural activities, taking up a hobby and perusing it, taking a break in the form of a holiday or a journey to a destination, pampering us in spas and health resorts, going on a spending spree, dabbling in technological gizmos, flaunting our sexuality and breaking gender stereotypes etc. We try to indulge in some activity which is neither routine nor necessitated by our livelihood. We prefer to take controlled risks to get an adrenaline rush. We try to do things which results in an adventure and which adds thrill and excitement to our life.
Question. Do you see an intersection of time and space in the story?
Answer. Yes, the dimensions of time and space overlap each other and creates a bridge between individual fantasy and public reality. Public time encroaches into personal space. A doorway through time that expands the boundaries of space is created in the story by means of Charley’s narrative and Sam’s letter from the past. Space and time come together to mould a new reality – the third level. Third level is a defined space but that belongs to the past. However, in the story that space from the past is accessible in the present time. So, the past becomes present in the story by means of a common and shared space. Third level is the common space which is from the past but also accessible in the present. The boundaries between past time and present time is merged in a common space called the third level.
Question. How does Jack Finney describe Galesburg, Illinois as it was in 1984?
Answer. The author using words paints a beautiful picture of Galesburg, Illinois as it was in 1894. The author presents that through the mouth of the central character named Charley. Charley describes the place as quiet and peaceful. It is far removed from the rush hour of a modern city. The lifestyle is relaxed, and the residents have enough time for socialising and leisure. The strong presence of nature adds beauty to the landscape. The community living there lived a peaceful life among trees, fireflies and picturesque landscape. He refers to the huge trees and lawns. He also talks about the rural nature of the community contrasted to the fast-moving life of an urban settlement. Then he also talks about the World Wars emphasizes how that community was unaware of the death and destruction, fear and trauma, enmity and hatred of the wars and still lived happily believing in human friendship and sharing.
