  1. Welcome, one and all, to Curious Cosmos. First things first, Curious Cosmos now hosts the Time Travel Institute forums. The two have not merged, per se, but it makes more sense to run one community platform than a handful of smaller sites. TTI is not going away; it's now part of a larger whole. So, why the change? I love this community. I love building this stuff and thinking of new ways to make things work. Sometimes that love turns into more of an "I will love him and squeeze him and call him George" situation than it needs to be, but I mean well. Most of all, I lo

  2. Introduction This is a complete list of the 10 symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1833), the 10th and final of which is currently theoretical and should become a reality in either an alternate timeline or a revision of history as we know it. The symphonies notes' contain the numerical order of each symphony, the key of each symphony and each of their movements, the numerical order of symphony movements (indicated in lowercase Roman numerals), the years of composition in parentheses, and the forms of each symphony movement (i.e. sonata form, rondo, etc.) also included in parentheses.

  3. Introduction This is a list of American classical composers, both real and fictional. The fictional ones are intended to become a reality in a separate timeline or in revised history. However, the names of these composers inserted into this list are largely hypothetical. That is, they may or may not be named as such after history is changed. The names of these composers are highlighted in boldface. The purpose of the presence of these composers is to make more compositional geniuses out of the people of America. European countries, particularly Italy, Spain, France, Germany, A

  5. Brief Introduction This is a revised timeline of selected events in the history of soda. Soda Timeline 1749 Ginger beer is introduced to England. 1760 Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) identifies caffeine. 1761 The word "caffeine" enters the English language. 1806 The kola nut is discovered by British explorers in Africa. 1808 The word "kola nut" enters the English language. 1811 The word "pep", meaning brisk energy, is introduced to the English language by people in the medical profession in England.

  6. Introduction The following paragraphs show a rough idea of a 2nd proposed change in history, the 1st one being about physically/genetically equating cat and dog years with human years, going back thousands or a million or more years. To take a look at the 1st change, go to this article. The 2nd one here is about modern Judaism, going back as early as the 6th century, roughly between 500 and 599 CE. Simon of Rome (500-551 CE) The modern history of Judaism among Eastern Slavic peoples begins in the 6th century with the reforms from Simon of Rome. Simon was born January 1, 5

  7. Introduction This is a revision of the United States presidential election of 1956, the year of Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower's landslide reelection. The previous presidential election, the one in 1952, was also a landslide for President Eisenhower. Eisenhower received 55.2% of the popular vote that year to Democrat Adlai Stevenson's 44.3%, and I intend to keep these totals somewhat similar to that of the current timeline/version of history. In other words, the 1952 election will be virtually unchanged. In the 1956 election of the current timeline, a re

  8. Introduction I've had a few relatives in my family, including both my grandfathers and my paternal grandmother, who smoked cigarettes a lot longer than they should have, and though they did quit smoking, they paid for their smoking since their lives ended somewhat prematurely as a complication of what they did all those years. With that in mind, I've come up with the idea of having alternatives to smoking tobacco come out as early as 1950. This is a revised, abridged history of the vaporizer (vape), AKA electronic cigarette. Background In the aftermath of World War II, which ended

  12. Introduction This is my 3rd article. It involves adding pioneer Renaissance figures to selected nations of Europe: Italy, Spain, France, Germany, England, and Russia. In current history as we know it, the Renaissance, which is said to have originated in Florence, Italy, took quite a while for the most part to be spread outside of Italy, although it entered certain nations like Spain earlier on, as I recall. This thread entails shortening this process, hence the introduction of additional pioneer Renaissance men. As can be inferred from the following paragraphs, the Renaissance goes from I

  13. Note: This post will be updated as things are added or how-tos are created. 9/5/2020: Curious Cosmos has a lot of features, and not all of them are apparent if you don't know where to look. To help you get the most out of what we have to offer, I'm setting up this Curious Cosmos Handbook zine to house some how-tos and tutorials for using the site. Here's what we'll be covering, and a rough timeline on when those how-tos will be made: Creating and setting up a Dimension (September) Creating and setting up a Zine/Blog (September) Using the points system (September)
