    ^No, I offered a different explanation for the Abramsverse there. Basically my DTI-novel temporal-physics model is that an altered timeline tends to collapse together with its original only if there is a 2-way exchange of matter, energy, or information between them, causing them to be mutually quantum-entangled and thus drawn together. If the exchange of mass/energy is only one-way -- as, for instance, via passage through a black hole -- then there is no collapse and the timelines can coexist, although the altered timeline has a one-way entanglement with the original and its events may thus be influenced to unfold in a similar way.

    But what does this have to do with Planet of the Apes again?

    That's correct, from the film itself. Cornelius's testimony in Escape puts the ape uprising generations after his presence on Earth.

    They replay some of that testimony in Battle, but snip the time indications out of it.

    You know, that's one reason the new POTA films intrigue me. We may finally get a series of POTA movies that actually do form a cohesive continuity instead of just pretending to.

    Although the time-loop structure of the original POTA films has created the unique situation where the reboot of the franchise was essentially a loose remake of the fourth film rather than the first. And I wonder how much Dawn will have in common with Battle.

    I wonder if they'll ever reach a point equivalent to the original movie.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    That they launch Charlton Heston into space never to return in our lifetimes, crowing "Smell you later asshole!" while giving his ship the finger as it climbs towards the heavens?


    I can totally see that happening.

    I honestly can't pick one. Love the original movie (and enjoyed the recent movie very much) but while I enjoyed them when I was younger, I find the sequels pretty unwatchable now.
