This might be a failure of my imagination - it's a bit tired at the moment. Still, I assume that Aeon isn't trying to actually replace the author's head, and questions of coincidence or cause are outside the territory I'd expect Aeon to map. As you might say.

ghoti wrote:3. My tired imagination is boggling a bit at how to enter all the information Aeon will be capable of displaying. At this stage your imagination is obviously working overtime on the development. Are there some imaginations exploring how new users might find their way into the application? I imagine the possibilities being rather overwhelming.
ghoti wrote:PS The reason I'm not playing with Aeon very much is that my current project needs dates BC and I'm so wrapped in it that I can't seem think about much else. I did try making my earliest date 1800 and doing the arithmetic, but I'm so used to working with my material in BC dates that I got completely confused. I note that dates BC are included with fantasy dates on the ToDo list for the next release, so I thought I'd wait for that.

However... I suspect you're asking those questions because of the complexities involved in coding all the eventualities, and so as a first cut I suggest the following:
1. Set event;
2. Set event;
3. Two arcs.
In other words, I've chosen what I imagine are the simpler options in terms of application logic, and as a writer I could work with them all.
