some of the numbers Tosh had written. Having those
numbers might have changed everything. The "not
knowing what you were doing" factor might simply be
"you didn't know you were doing just what Bilis wanted
you to do".

the rift, rather than to open it. A machine to do
what Gwyneth did so long ago.
My argument that it is actually a time machine being
designed by Jack comes from the notion that it looks
like the TARDIS mechanism, and that we know Jack is
growing a TARDIS on his desk. Perhaps the machine is
only really viable when the TARDIS
consciousness/organism/whatever is amalgamated with
I suspect Jack is faking it, or at least experimenting
to see how it works as he goes, but he knows the
dangers in what he is doing and Owen does not.
