History

According to the D'ni cosmology, the Creator Yahvo created the Terokh Jeruth, the Great Tree of Possibilities which has infinite leaves, and each leaf is one Age. In this conception every Universe therefore is just one Leaf, belonging to its own Branch, which in turn belongs to another and another, ultimately all belonging to the Great Tree. The theory can be described as a multiverse. Some Ages might resemble others but are actually different.

The forefathers of the D'ni, the Ronay of Garternay, developed what they called the Art (Gestoy). The Art allowed them to write Linking Books, that could create a Link between Ages, allowing people to travel to the Ages described in the Books.

There are some limitations, however. Several basic rules must be obeyed, or else the book will be linked to an unstable or near-death world. One may not link from one location in an Age to another location inside the same Age. This rule is not limited only to places or planets, but refers to the entire universe. For example, a Linking Book on Earth can not "link" to Mars. This will not work because both Earth and Mars exist in the same Age. The Linking Book will Link to a planet similar to our Mars, even belonging to a system similar to ours in another reality, but not actually the same planet.

Additional Info

Instead of referring to any given time period, the D'ni word "Age" might refer to the infinite expanse of Time of a Universe, from uttermost past to ultimate future, defining and encompassing therefore all of its existence.

Throughout the games it will be seen that most Ages are developed as or with focal points. These focal points vary from the watery Stoneship Age to the garden Edanna, to even Riven (where its flawed nature creates a power source used throughout the game).

These focal points (with the exeption of Riven) are said by Atrus to give the age balance, Though in creating Releeshan he writes that it was his intention to create a balance of all plausible focal points in order for the civilization to grow.

Initially, many believed that the Ages visited in the Myst game were different time stages of Myst Island, but later knowledge revealed this was a mistaken view.
