As everybody says that this is one of the "Sekai kei" = "the world series". (though I know that this sound funny lol...) There are the various views about the definition of sekai kei.
But basically, Sekai kei is a novel, manga or anime that has the story that argue that 'real whole world' and 'internal world' are equivalent for a human. In a word, this is a philosophy.
I agree that the science fiction elements are important piece of this series. But I think the philosophy IS the main plot of this series.
Therefore I think that those SF elements are just prepared for a philosophical storyline, in a sense.
