Wikipedia's "fractal time" article lost and found

In November 2008, Wikipedians MZMcBride and Jerzy thoroughly deleted the "fractal time" article. That sounds like a sensible thing to do; but so ruthless was the deletion that it's impossible to peek back at the pre-deletion state of the article on Wikipeda itself. That seems contrary to the wiki spirit.

On Wikipedia, here's all that's left:

Fortunately, someone at a multilingual archiving site has seen fit to preserve the whole thing. As you can see it was a work in progress, with sections devoted to Laurent Nottale and Mohamed El Naschie planned but not yet written. Both appear in the references. There is no author's name, nor any indication of how it came to be archived on that site.
