|The Reality Chain that led to the universe as we know it.|
In turn, Thomas passed his infites on to me, so for the past two years I have been engaged in the process of discovering how the Ekcolir Reality differed from the Buld Reality.
Close, But no Cigar

The similarities between the Ekcolir Reality and the Buld Reality are pervasive, but there are some interesting differences.

century (official name: Beverwijck en Nicotiana) in the Ekcolir Reality.

Interestingly, the analog of the U.S. Civil War in the Ekcolir Realty played an important role in the industrialization of New England. Just 5 short months ago, I believed that there would be a published account of the Ekcolir Reality called Assassination by Subtraction, but apparently that book contained information that cannot be made known to the people of Earth. This censorship might have something to do with the mysterious tryp'At who seem to have an interesting relationship with the new Overseers of Earth, a relationship that I'm still trying to understand.

However, I have been "informed" that in the Ekcolir Reality there was catastrophic sea level rise.
Origins and Endings
|The Sedronites and their relationship with we humans.|
I'm still trying to understand the origins of the Ekcolir Reality, but I recently made major progress towards that goal. Much of the work required to bring into existence the Ekcolir Reality apparently took place in the Galactic Core. The Ek'col had to be created and Ekcolir trained for his mission to Earth.
Star Dance. They were able to bring into existence a new Earthling, Carl Sagan, who had not existed in previous Realities. Sagan's "creation" coincided with the end of the Asimov Reality and the start of the Ekcolir Reality. Sagan went on to have an important role to play in the Buld Reality, a role that I am still trying to understand. It appears that like Asimov, Sagan was "duplicated" or in some other way given a "second life" in the Buld Reality and a chance to alter interactions between the Buld and we Earthlings. I believe that the "John Vance" who shared the Star Dance story with me was, like Thomas, brought over into the Buld Reality from the Ekcolir Reality (as was the "original Sessily").
