A world very much like ours, with the same people in the same roles. Is it our timeline? No, something is different. Open a history book, and you'll find a vastly different past, one full of different people in different roles, in a vastly different world.
And yet it all converges to one point. It ends up exactly the same as ours. But what a vivid history full of changes!
