"DVD" is short for 'Digital Versatile Disc' and although what we know as a DVD was introduced in 1995, earlier 'discs' included the 1993 released Video CD (VCD), Multimedia Compact Disc (MMCD), and the Super Density (SD) disc (all being digital data discs).
I always thought that a DVD meant a movie disk, but that is not so.
DVD was the generic name for any disk that included more and different data that what was playing on the earlier musical compact disks.
BUT the only account pertaining to the number of ‘setup’ disks (that I have come across) is the one in the Book of Mormon cited on the FAQ page.
They are reporting finding these ‘plates’ as part of their historical writings.
They found something, they reported it in their chronicles, then Ronald Pegg made his discoveries regarding what they have reported.
I personally do not know the why, why not, etc.
It is as if people do not read my words nor follow the links I provide,
“Why did they take back a 386 personal desktop computer ?”
It was the minimum system that would run the four particular cd-roms.
At some time in the future, someone was going to notice that the images from a certain cd-rom that run on a certain computer match to the described imagery by nearly all the ancient prophets. (From a religious perspective, this was the foretold 'unsealing of the Book with Seven Seals'.) That someone was Ronald Pegg from Queensland Australia (the biblical Second Witness). In contrast to all the previous ancient people who were shown the images on a computer due to some type of time travel encounter (ie. visions in a bright light by an angel), Pegg just went out and bought the current 'modern' computer package from his local shop - which just happened to include one of the cd-roms.
If a different type of computer was taken back to the past each time, then there would not be a consistent trail of clues documented in ancient texts that could be traced back (forward) to a particular computer system.
As Pegg was using the same computer and cd-roms that were documented in ancient texts, it was easy for him to identify the technology being described and the contents of the cd-roms.
“Why did 'time messengers' keep taking back the same computer and cd-roms to the past ?”
The computer and cd-roms were the means by which certain information, particularly pictures, of the same modern events could be shown to ancient people in an attempt to make them document in their texts what will happen in their distant future.
When it was discovered that a time experiment and visit to Mesopotamia was the initial cause of Religions, it was decided to show ancient people a particular future war (the 1991 Persian Gulf War) that will be fought in the name of Religion in the same country (now known as Iraq), in an attempt to persuade them that what the previous prophets saw was not from a divine God or gods .
“Why were those particular cd-roms chosen ? “
Specifically, the Grolier cd-rom shows an audio-visual presentation of the future Mesopotamian (ie. Iraq) war. As previously noted, the Ancients cd-rom was relevant to neighbouring regions from which future civilizations would emerge. The RedShift2 cd-rom contains an astronomical event that occurred in 1992/4, being the comet ShoemakerLevy 9 incidents.
They all contain particular historical information (ie. modern historical events and people) that provide a combined datable set of resources. While this data was shown to ancient people, it meant nothing to them, and as such, would not change or destroy the time line (ie. change our historical past). But because these (future) details were written down in ancient texts, when they actually occur (in the future), certain people would be able to recognize these events and literally decode the Bible (and other ancient texts).
A more basic answer is that they are all of the same era, and as such, run on the same desktop computer system. One of the disks (Grolier) came with the PC386 cd-drive up-grade package.
Basically, May 1997 is a TIME KEY, being the start of the 1,260 days until the unnamed Second Witness' activities begin, where it is announced that another code is contained within the Bible which reveals evidence of time travel.
Finding 2 introduces the ‘1st biblical witness’ while Findings 5 provides the associated ‘biblical Signs’.
Adding 1,260 days onto May 2 1997 derives the day that Ronald Pegg’s work was first made public in Australia.
The Second Witness® work has not yet been released.
