      • Emmett has regrets, coupled with worries about ushering in an arms race through time, in the same way he helped usher in the nuclear arms race through his participation in the Manhattan Project. He uses his prototype temporal field capacitor to send a letter through time to himself since he knows that it lacks a means to prevent overheating due to the overload of flux energy. He sends it to August 1, when he knows he and Copernicus were safe in the fireproof lab in his garage.[38] This creates Timeline 2, which begins at the note's entry point on August 1, 1962 and Timeline 1 fades away.
