haplogroup question

Can anyone tell me what the basic difference would be between E1b1b1a2* and R1b1b2a1a. Are they related in any way or completely different haplogroups?

They are related but very VERY far back. E1b1b1a2 (E-V68) and R1b1b2a1a (is this R-U106?) share a common ancestor thousands of years ago. Their common ancestor was Haplogroup CT which originated circa 70,000 years ago in Asia or East Africa.

These two haplogroups are not related in a genealogical time frame.
