Billy Pilgrim got onto a chartered airplane in Ilium twenty-five years after that. He knew it was going to crash, but he didn’t want to make a fool of himself by saying so. The narrator describes when Billy time-trips to the moment of a horrific plane crash and chooses not to warn anybody.

Honestly, other than having learned that there are a whole lot more other perspectives and ways of seeing the world that I’ve never thought of, there isn’t much that I can take away.
