Degenerating tangents in Tangents

Something happened on a tangent to cause it to rapidly deteriorate. Portions of it simply vanish, people end up frozen in space never to move again, locations are swapped. What other effects of tangent collapse could there be?

Anomalies in time and causality that are steadily getting worse: People disappear or appear as if they have never or always existed. Inanimate objects deteriorate rapidly, or age in reverse from a decayed to a pristine condition. Movements of the sun, moon and planets become irregular. The sky or ocean changes colour (possibly indicating that the speed of light or laws of optics are no longer fixed).

Just remembered another one. Objects change their chemical composition. Concrete becomes sugar. Water turns into mercury. Etc.

A tangent begins to fall apart because it's energy is being harnessed by a machine created in a neighborhood tangent. The suns begin to die down first, gravitational fluxes rip across planets and soon all chaos follows.

A classic tale of apocalyptic disaster that might sound familiar from any number of visible cross-influences:

So, someone invents the Ultimate Negatory?

Here's a fairly developed version: The Negative Zone

Tangent windows collapse randomly onto each other. Let's see here, a few random shots;

The Spartan right wing appears blocking the way across Ponte Milvio in the year 312 AD between Maxentius and Constantine.

The Nazis begin their drive into the Ardennes in 1945 but instead of Americans they find themselves in prehistoric Germany in the year 55 Million BC. Running out of fuel for their tanks and ammo for their guns they run into numerous nests of Gastornis.

King Sennacherib and his army marching to Lachish in 701 BC to lay the smack down of rebelling Hebrews instead find themselves encountering the IDF at the Golan Heights in 1967.

Napoleon sails with his Navy into Egypt in 1798 and finds that the Sphinx has not been buried in the sand and encounters the Egyptians building the pyramids.

Lewis and Clark travel west for the first time and reach a huge settlement constructed of concrete, steel, rebar and asphalt. Among the flattened ruins and rubble piles they eventually succumb to 'rotting' skin and suffer blindness as their vision is 'burned' away the closer they walk closer to the center of 'Portland'.

Timur the Lame leads his nomadic horde into Hindu India in 1398 and encounters his opponent Ashoka the Great leading the Mauryan army. As expected the Mongol-like horde conquers.... Buddism is never established.

And then: Black Sun Deathcrawl

".. the apocalypse is not merely nigh, it has passed, the world is over and all that is left are the crumbling ashes of the ages before and the Cursed survivors who have yet to succumb to the soul-obliterating rays of the Black Sun. Make what you can of the little time you have left before the Black Sun renders your efforts meaningless."

The GM's introduction, or mood-setting section describes a little of the worlds past and how this came about. The PCs and their universe have more or less been sacrificed in an effort to keep those of The Bright Sun safe (but it may yet fail them).
