I don’t know the answer to your exact questions. So I appologise, but I am going to instead explain all my current thoughts on Waking Titan Project as a whole: how it may have started, why we are being contacted, and what is its purpose (this is a meta interpretation of the narrative, so bear with me).
This is what I think happened in the beginning. The Atlas Foundation, an umbrella corporation that joins several different high tech companies (Echo, Multiverse, Myriad, and Superlumina) and funds them, began to receive a garbled video message of its CEO Elizabeth Leighton, claiming to be from the future, and warning of something that was going to go wrong as a result of the company’s research.
Present day Elizabeth Leighton, unable to fully understand the message from her future self or how to respond to it, reached out to her government contact, Major Sophie Dubois and possibly asked to halt the research her corporation had been doing, which was at the behest of the government. Major Dubois refused, insisting the research continue, saying “We don’t have time for this, Elizabeth”.
Elizabeth then instead reached out to other intellegent individuals across the world, anyone who could help prevent the dark future her future self had warned her about in the video message. Anyone able to decode her encrypted messages would do. She even sent out agents to deliver top secret documents to anyone able to figure out where to pick them up.
Now, we have been brought into this, and are slowly being shown the messages from the future Elizabeth Leighton, so that we can somehow avert the timeline the Atlas Foundation is unable to escape.
