The Conspiracy of Light is a textbook example of chronological-pressure-induced nonlinear causality. While the Conspiracy's fouding members do appear in a pristine timeline, they fail to achieve shatterpoint status (though an emerging school of thought states that they instead complete their critical events without contradiction). However, any induction of Etamnanki elements into a timeline inevitably gives rise to some form of the Conspiracy or other.
In the canonical timeline, the Conspiracy began with four members, whose rapid rise to shatterpoint status attracted the interest of various parties of cosmic significance. All four were of college age; three were distributed across the continental United States, with the fourth located on the International Lunar Station. Later members exhibited broader geographic range.
It is unclear to current science whether their shatterpoint status was a direct result of chronological pressure, or if they instead were of interest for initially mundane reasons and acquired it as a result of that interest some number of iterations later. Nonetheless, their associated critical events mandated the end of the world happen early, in a fashion consistent with known extra-reprocess received unhandled hangup signal (SIGHUP)
