This treatment will not be at all comprehensive. It’s a collection of such potential links, assembled in the last few weeks and presented in complete sentences as a marker, rather than as a finished analysis or theory. Basically, these are research notes. I want to get them out there as a service.
Rather than attempting to weave them as a story, I’m trusting readers to know the basic outline and recognize why dates and events are significant.
