Leslie Childs on April 12, 2018 at 13:59 Good stuff. For far too long, our modern culture has indulged itself with unjustified assessments of our own “smarts”. There is so much that we don’t know. annett weber on April 12, 2018 at 18:49 Fascinating !Looking forward to reading more,Afiena ☺ email@example.com on April 13, 2018 at 21:47 working on it, Annett, slow going, but it can’t be rushed Hans K Larsen on April 13, 2018 at 09:11 Take a look at ‘The Twilight Compass’ in use on, at least early jet trips from EU to AL over the North Pole l James P. Boggs on April 13, 2018 at 17:09 It must be fun, Afiena, to set sail and go exploring and find out more and more about the fascinating historical worlds you write about. It’s certainly interesting and fun for us to read. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org on April 13, 2018 at 21:57 I think it’s the best way found so far to skip in and out of earlier worlds whenever we want, to live parallel lives of our choice then and there as long as we wish!
