If he already knew what was going to happen, that would have to imply he traveled directly to
that point in time and had been to some point after it.
That doesn't fit the MO of Charles. She says he's stranded, and has been wandering around for a while.
So is it even illogical that he would forget a few things?
According to her, he's not even in the same timeline anymore.
I don't see why he would "know" anything that was going to happen.
Here's some more facts, to maybe help this make sense.
Story that he allegedly told her is, he stopped a grenade from going off that would have otherwise killed an important figure. He stopped a war from
happening, saved millions of people because due to the grenade not going off, a country never went to war and a nuclear bomb never got dropped. He's
from a parallel timeline, where WW3 happens in 2015.
He implied that he knew John Titor, and that John Titor was just a journalist. He said "John would've been nothing w/o me."
He traveled to this one for some reason. But now the two timelines have diverged and he can't go back.
That's why there's 2 "ME"'s. One is 71, the other is 25.
Still not saying I believe it, but...
That bit is kind of a keystone, and I should've led with it.
But when you go implying you saved the world, well...
I get your confusion, and yes, it makes no sense otherwise.
I sincerely doubt that "Charles" is his real name,
but I don't think of him as "me" either...
At least, not yet.
