"If a Tangent Universe occurs, it will be highly unstable, sustaining itself for no longer than several weeks."
"When a Tangent Universe occurs, those living nearest to the Vortex will find themselves at the epicenter of a dangerous new world. Artifacts provide the first sign that a Tangent Universe has occured."… "their appearance on Earth seems to defy logical explanation."
The Living Receiver is chosen to guide the Artifact into position for its journey back to the Primary Universe.
No one knows how or why a Receiver will be chosen.
The Living Receiver is often blessed with Fourth Dimensional Powers. These include increased strength, telekinesis, mind control, and the ability to conjure fire and water."
"The Living Receiver is often tormented by terrifying dreams, visions and auditory hallucinations during his time within the Tangent Universe."
"The Manipulated Dead are more powerful than the Living Receiver. If a person dies within the Tangent Dimension, they are able to contact the Living Receiver…
"Ancient myth tells us the Mayan Warrior killed by an Arrowhead that had fallen from a cliff, where there was no Army, no enemy to be found.
We are told of the Medieval Knight mysteriously impaled by the sword he had not yet built.
We are told that these things occur for a reason."
Impact of Time Travel in the Multiverse
What this means for the notion of time travel within the Multiverse is that there is not a single timeline which can be changed retroactively in order to irrevocably change the future.
Lets say a time traveler goes back in time to avert a catastrophe that has destroyed 99% of all human life on Earth (leaving only the time traveler and some of his friends). Let’s say the catastrophe could have been averted by preventing a man from pushing a big red button. Going back to the moment in the traveler’s universe in which the button was about to be pressed and stopping the man from pressing it will not change the future tangent universe from which the traveler came.
Instead, at the moment a divergent event occurs as a result of the intervention of the time traveler (e.g., preventing the button from being pressed and saving most of humanity), a new tangent universe will be created.
This tangent universe will follow its own path, splitting in turn into a multitude of tangent universes. We can imagine, however, that this could be perfectly satisfactory to the time-traveler with the capability of reaching these newly-created tangent universes. He could occupy a newly-spawned, equally real, tangent universe where his loved ones were not killed. He would have to confront the fact, however, that he had left friends and loved ones behind in another, far-less hospitable, universe in order to secure a more comfortable existence for himself (in a universe in which versions of these people also exist, perhaps living happier lives). He also faces the problem of having entered a tangent universe in which a version of himself never had a need to depart; he would have to decide how to deal with his own double. Any of these issues, in addition to being disorienting, would undoubtedly cause some ethical, existential, and psychological problems for the traveler.
Suppose we Would you be willing to help save this universe if you knew you could? Would you be willing to fulfill your duty as a Receiver? If you knew time travel could cause results like this (hey, who knows, we won’t know until we’ve mastered it and try) would you oppose it?

Humanity might be some sort of bacteria, a beneficial one I might say. But have been corrupted and have become 'cancerous' in sense. The living energies of the galaxy or even the universe could be being siphoned off by malevolent entities for their own selfish gains.
They might be operating like a cancer, a harmful bacteria, or even a virus(biological or like the computer virus). Now the creator, may have no other choice but do drastic means to rid of these harmful elements. Similar to chemotherapy maybe that might also destroy 'living cells/tissues' because of the collateral damage.

If you, I and we are all living in it; then how can it be a tangent universe? This IS our reality! Just my 2-cents!
Also about the strange artifacts appearing.......could those be what UFOs are?
