No surprise here! October is practically obsessed with time travel in The Civilization Loop. The likewise is true in Beyond the Loop. But, October's reasons for traveling through time and the experiences he has go well beyond obsession. Then man means to make time his oyster and prove that time truly has no meaning and no hold upon him. The earthly confines of our world around it's celestial life giver provide our concept of time. But, once you begin violating the laws of physics and propel yourself on a journey that defies reason, time becomes second nature to the grand scope of the universe. That's the one thing October wants to find, the true meaning of existence. Unlike Bobby Peterson though, October means to exploit it! Check out some other interesting facts about the possibilities of time travel by clicking the image.
October's obsession with time was only exceeded by his devotion to one of the darkest periods in human history. He studied Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich immensely, making this World War II era Nationalist Party a prime stopping point along his journey. His misconstrued beliefs about Hitler prompted him to deduce that the Fuehrer listened too much to his subordinates. Nothing could have been further from the truth, but how do you rationalize something with a mad man? Click the image to learn more about Hitler and his unspeakable Holocaust against the Jews, that ultimately would have been turned against the entire world.
No one truly knows who this man was or why he chose to do what he did. But, October's indulgence in historical misadventures could not leave out the most intriguing murder mystery of all time. At least five victims were slain in the streets of London's Whitechapel district in 1888 as The Ripper's torrid campaign waged. But as quickly as the killings began, they also stopped abruptly. There is no reason as to why the killings stopped or even why the alleged murderer suddenly disappeared, seemingly from existence. Perhaps you can find out by clicking the image.

World Trade Center AttacksSeptember 11, 2001. The worst terrorist attack in United States history. On this day nearly three thousand American civilians, New York police officers and firefighters lost their lives at the hands of al-Qaeda. Or did they? Just as with the John F. Kennedy Assassination of 1963, conspiracy theories abound with this tale of epic tragedy, heroic deeds, human surrealism, and a country's determination to overcome. Although conspiracies maybe considered fun fodder to pursue, these theories can only serve to diminish the plight of those who lost loved ones that day if we allow ourselves to become too enamored with them. So always remember the truth of what happened that day, no matter how much you love to indulge in creative flights of fancy.

The Nativity StoryThree Wise Men come from the East. A baby sleeps in a manger. A star never seen before or again in human history reveals the location of the Messiah. A virgin gives birth to a King in waiting. A terrible event ensues to preserve a kingdom. This is the story of the Nativity. Although it is celebrated by Christians every December 25th, no one knows exactly what day or in what year it may have occurred. Were the circumstances real? Did Herod really order his men to kill so many children? Where did the "Wise Men" come from and how did they know to proceed to Bethlehem? What was the star of Bethlehem? Search for the answers by starting with the image to the left and see if you can figure out that which so many have been debating for the past 2,000 years.
The Mayan CalendarDecember 21, 2012. Will this become another date that will live in infamy, or just another day leading up to Christmas that year? Scholars and archeologists alike are unclear as to why the Mayan Calendar seems to emphasize this date. Astronomers cite a rare Galactic Alignment will occur that day, which only occurs once every 13,000 years. Some interpreters and prognosticators proclaim a day of great awakening or ultimate destruction for humanity. But no matter what you believe, the year 2012 has captivated the world today and there's no end to the possibilities that could potentially unfold until we all travel into the future and experience the day firsthand.

The Second ComingChristians refer to it as "The Rapture", "The Great Tribulation", "The End of Days." To believe in Christ means you have an inherent belief in the prophecy that He will one day return. But just what are the signs of that coming? Who will experience it? Will there ever be a true Antichrist? Is Satan powerful enough to bring the world to the brink of ultimate destruction? Or has all of this already unfolded? Are we living in the "End Times" or is The Book of Revelation a complete folly of metaphors that only comes to an end when a human being reaches their ultimate fate? Search for yourselves.
