Those “year” numbers are bothering me. Perhaps they are not a sequence and really do point to some significant events in those years. Could the categories they are under be important to deciphering them?
Speaking of deciphering, in 1799 the Rosetta Stone was discovered in Egypt. Maybe unimportant to solving this, but certainly relevant to us!
These are odd years, if that’s what they represent. I’m just spitballing here, but are these related to No Man’s Sky somehow? Perhaps the four numbers relate somehow to the four pillars of gameplay in NMS (fight, explore, trade, survive)? Those concepts are vague though and could be found in any year, so I am doubting this is worth exploring.
In 1802 H.W. Olbers discovered the asteroid Pallas, named after the mythological Titan. I searched for asteroid discoveries in the other years in hopes of finding a pattern of Titan names, but could find none.
