Reality Christopher sees everything differently, he is more observant and literal. So when he sees a women on the street he scans her and observes in a very particular way that not many people do.
lady i saw today was wearing a red dress with flowers on them she smelled like detergent soap and she had little spots on her face with a abnormally large head

Betrayal when Christopher found out that his dad kept the secret about his mom he was betrayed and upset. he has never felt such emotion all at once so he decides to leave run away.
Christopher I'm so sorry please comeback
Dad lied and said mom had a heart attack but she is still alive

isolation is a key theme in this book. Christopher prefers to be isolated and does not like populated places. However he has ways to calm him self like listing prime numbers or thinking about Space. In the scene where he is at the train station he feels very crowded so he starts listing prime numbers in his head.
there is too many people maybe if i just start rocking back and fourth and groan....

Although Christopher does not like to be touched his father still shows him emotion and love through the compromise of touching finger tips.
I Love You
logic vs emotion when he leaves the women's house who was preparing some scones for him, he left because of his logic because Christopher has trouble making decisions through emotion so he acts with logic.
She was trying to give me cookies but..... strangers cant be trusted
Christopher cant usually control the days and they are almost always chaotic so he has his own unusual methods, to think and reassure himself that there is order. Like how he sees the days depending on the colored cars in a row chaos vs order.
