This is a draft version. It was based only on _The Number of the Beast_,
_The Cat Who Walks Through Walls_ (CWWTW), _To Sail Beyond the Sunset_
(TSBTS), and those timelines
mentioned in those books. Page references,
by default, are to _The Number of the Beast_, or to _The Cat Who Walks
Through Walls_ (if they are after "CWWTW")

empires, even in Milky Way (p.211). The planets are linked by Gates (p.212).
7000 years ago, an "emperor" was installed, with cyber hardware to
access all history previous to him. As long as "emperors" succeeded
each other, their experiences were taped in a device, named "the Egg of

the Egg. They are isolated until they develop star travel (p.216).
RAH.GR.(Center) - Earth-like planet without Earth's faults. Size of Mars,
with oceans and gravity similar to Earth (its Universe has a different
constant of gravity) (p.219). Convergence of cultures from twenty
