Default The 'Crazy Wave'

Rereading the book, and the talk about the 'wave' coming from the core made me think.

Could this have anything to do with the rebellion, and the collapse, in the 1120's?

The timing just seemed right.

I think that the wave is the empress wave, while the break is the rebellion/virus era, the black fleets could be Lucan's Imperium or it could be something else.

Marc has the tools in T5 and the hints in AotI to alter known future history, is that what the second path is, a future where the wave, the rebellion and virus and then the black fleets are all avoided?

Wonderful stuff the not foam...

And a path where some of them are avoided; that is, the Lorenverse.
