Szenen, die sich in verschiedenen Jahrhunderten abgespielt haben.
Er beginnt, Zusammenhänge zwischen all diesen Episoden zu vermuten
und erfährt von Vorgängen in der Vergangenheit, die an seinem
Geschichtsbild rütteln. Gleichzeitig erhält er einen Überblick über die Entwicklung der Erde vom Urknall bis heute und er wird mit dem Fortschritt der Physik vertraut gemacht, wobei er sogar auf einfache Weise die Relativitätstheorie und die Quantentheorie zu begreifen lernt. Er erfährt, wie Zeitsprünge in die Zukunft oder in die Vergangenheit physikalisch funktionieren könnten.
In Verbindung mit einer Skizze über das Wesen der Religionen und einer Darstellung des Begriffes „Gott“ wird die Kontroverse zwischen der darwinischen Evolutionstheorie und der biblischen Schöpfungsgeschichte erläutert und die provokative Frage gestellt: "Könnten wir Menschen es selbst gewesen sein, die aus der Zukunft den Fortschritt gesteuert haben?“ - Ist die Erzählung nur ein Jux, eine nicht ernst zu nehmende Utopie? Oder hat es sich wirklich so abgespielt?

Close Anglo-French naval and armed forces cooperation was once thrown away whilst Adolf Hitler stole a march at the western democracies, and began the second one international warfare sooner than his competitors have been ready.
Churchill panicked that the strong sleek French Fleet may perhaps subscribe to the Axis, and gave the order to neutralize French warships.
At Mers el-Kébir Admiral Somerville, blindly obeyed orders, fired at the French squadron tied up in port, knocked out 3 capital ships and killed 1,300 French sailors. Somerville learned he had dedicated the best blunders of his whole life.
This trade background examines what may need occurred if Somerville had a special direction. in the end, because the admiral instant, he was once subsequent in basic terms to God in his freedom of action.
Suddenly, occasions started to spread in a really diversified demeanour. The narrative takes on a lifetime of its personal, each one reason and impact following on evidently. The French dependent in North Africa wreak vengeance at the perfidious Italian Fascists who had stabbed them within the again, and the stability of energy within the Mediterranean is dramatically altered.

In the some distance East, Japan’s growth plans are completely disillusioned by means of the arriving of a strong French fleet. the following too every thing seems just a little another way, with fantastic results.
Well-led and correctly armed, the French soldier, airman and sailor may perhaps, and did, deal successfully with their Axis competitors, as in Norway, at Bir Hacheim and less than Leclerc. actually, such a lot by no means obtained the chance.
Moment of future introduces eye-witness bills of exchange occasions, including photograph montages (with a “health caution” for destiny historians), comprises an research of truth as opposed to fiction, offers parallel time charts, and ends with yet another scary possibility.
Based on suggestions from the 1st variation, this enlarged moment version refines sure points of the tale, and provides major eye-witness money owed of the aerial combats over the Atlantic, and within the skies of japanese France, the place the dive bomber suggestion is eventually vindicated.
