Notes on special problems, by Ariane:

Dudley Darbisher was born well before the development of ARIAX and subsequent emergence of the Ariaxan cult, yet it is said that he spent much of his life in an Ariaxan enclave.  Perhaps these "Ariaxans" are neo-Pythagoreans, often considered the predecessors of the Ariaxans in many ways.  Or possibly ARIAX was already being worked on by the CCC at this time, and these Ariaxans had knowledge of it before the general public was aware of its existence.  Further research is needed.

Radiometric Dowsers were used in an attempt to find and recover the WITs shortly after their first invention and distribution (during the period of Borgonne's activity and the Struggle for Consumer Control).  WITs obviously existed prior to the ISE, as they were used to warn Phlogistonian civilians of the danger.  The SCC also appears to have taken place in the pre-Revolution years.  Yet Pappy Baptiste's account claims Radiometric Dowsers were not invented until after the ISE, for the purpose of solving the "highway wolf" problem.  It seems reasonable to conclude that a primitive Radiometric Dowser existed previously, but the enhanced irrandirium-detecting version was invented subsequent to the ISE.  Radiometric Dowsers also featured in the Rumble conflict (a.k.a. Desert Roar).  When this took place, and what type of Dowsers may have been used, is completely unknown.

It is not known exactly when the Tenebrous Period occurred in relation to other events, except that the Borgonne episode took place during the early part of it.  Little is known about the Recombinant Era except that it preceded the Tenebrous Period (is it identified with E6 or an earlier Era, or is it something else entirely?
