There may or may not be time travel involved, it's mainly parallel dimensional travel, and major events have reflections of varying degrees across all parallels, e.g. World War Two on our world caused nuclear devastation on many parallels of lower index at exactly the same time, and caused one man to lose his temper and shout obscenities on Prime.

NB: a lower index does not necessarily mean a lower tech level - indeed many industrialised parallels have lower indices than pre-industrial ones. it's all a question of ecology and balance.


Many parallels can be grouped into geographical locations, i.e.
