...offers up some ideas of what the non-fiction portions of this site are all about.
...serves up the best of the entertainment-oriented parts of my site, from years past: Kindle ebooks of a 'hard' science fiction series about humanity's far future, and automotive-related action/adventure stories inspired by my real life youth and self-built supercar.
Specialized site maps for major chunks of this site:
Future history timeline site map lists pages which cover time from the present through the end of our universe and beyond.

Welcome to my universe! Illustrated story index is a complete catalog of all books and on-site stories regarding Jerry Staute, the Pearsalls, and related personalities, including how and where each relates to the others.
Other items which make this site unique online include...
Perspectives on the past: Catastrophism, lost prehistoric civilizations, forgotten technologies, missed opportunities, and more
(Please note that although Perspectives may at times include supporting references, it is far more speculative and entertainment oriented than the timeline proper).
100 trillion trillion BC- 3,000,000,001 BC (References) and 3,000,000,000 BC- 60,000,000 BC offers surprising facts and possibilities regarding the beginnings and underpinnings of our Universe and World.

Our aquatic stage? Approximately 5,000,000 BC: Earth possibly suffers a 'cosmic ray' winter for thousands of years; human ancestors are walking upright on two legs (and consequently gain the power of imitative speech)...
Left and right Approximately 200,000 BC- 50,000 BC: Various hominids are living in small, roaming groups; the majority of humanity has become righthanded

The Atlantis that could have been: A lost civilization on the southeast asian peninsula, circa 25,125 BC- 13,875 BC?

The Atlantis that could have been
The Atlantis that could have been REFERENCES
What could have been: A lost civilization in southeast asia, 25,125 BC- 13,875 BC An advanced civilization emerges on the lowlands of the greater southeast asian peninsula, rapidly develops technologies rivaling that of the 20th and 21st centuries, then splinters in civil war. The more advanced faction decimates the other with nuclear weapons, then finds itself drowned by rising sea levels not long after, due to the end of the Ice Age. More than 14,000 years later there will remain negligible evidence that the civilization ever existed at all.
The Atlantis That Could Have Been:
A Lost Civilization in Southeast Asia,
25,125 BC- 13,875 BC?

APPENDIX B: Airship "anti-gravity" devices actually acoustic levitation technologies?
APPENDIX C: Big Black Delta: A 21st century human version of the Vailixi airships of old?
10,000 BC-2,001 BC covers the transition of humanity from a world with much greater land mass to that we know today (huge regions were drowned by rising sea levels and inland waterways between 15,000 BC and 3,000 BC).
2,000 BC-1,800 AD, 1,801 AD-1,900 AD, 1,901 AD-1,950 AD, and 1,951 AD-1,990s AD all provide a look at our most recent progress from barely constrained predatory animals to civilized beings (alas, we seem to easily lose the veneer of civilization even today; witness the ethnic cleansing in Yugoslavia and elsewhere around the turn of the millennium).
Mayan X Approximately 780 AD - 900 AD: An unusual member of the Mayan elite helps lead his nation into ruin to serve his own ends
