There are a few theories on where the story originated from.
The first is a strikingly similar storyline of a game called GURPS, by Steve Jackson Games
The second is more research done on some of the names he mentioned. It seems a phycisist, Dr. Hendrick van Hees from Germany, is behind the theory of timetravel which Titor is explaining in bits and pices to whoever asks. If you search the good Drs documentations you can find similarities in his work, and some lines are quoted in Titors posts. They say one of his students did it basing it on IP tracking, student projects, and email ignorance from Van Hees.
