## Using Math for Time Travel

Using Math for Time Travel
by PaulaJedi

I am a believer that time travel is possible via math. What one does with the math, I can only guess, as I am not an engineer or scientist, but in my most humble opinion, I feel math proves time travel is possible. I will first refer to a quote by the infamous John Titor himself. In his original posts, John Titor stated the following when describing the physics of time travel:

“ROTATING BLACK HOLE = DONUT-SHAPED SINGULARITY

Fortunately, most black holes are not static. They spin. Spinning black holes are often referred to as Kerr black holes. A Kerr black hole has two interesting properties. One, they have two event horizons and two, the singularity is not a point, it looks more like a donut. These odd properties also have a pronounced affect on the black hole’s gravity. There are vectors where you can approach the singularity without being crushed by gravity.” – John Titor

A donut shape, or torus, is mathematically possible, and when I show you an image of it, you will see that it looks exactly like a worm hole.

The following page will explain the math behind the torus shape. Please make particular note of the n-dimensional torus, I feel that this equation might possibly point to a way to travel to other dimensions.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torus

Of course, many believe a wormhole looks more like this:

What I am proposing, based on John Titor’s statement, is that there is a torus on each end of the wormhole with their centers being elongated or stretched.  Or, if you look at one single torus, you can see the “old fashioned” image of a wormhole inside of it.  Refer to the rotating image above.

Another interesting thought on this page is the concept of an “inside out” torus.

It can be “punctured” to encourage it to flip.  Take a look at this animation, taken from the above website. Look what happens. One side of the torus, or wormhole, can reach the other side.  Does this mean, by using math and the proper technology, that we could potentially reach the other side of the worm hole without going THROUGH it? Could we possibly aggravate or puncture the worm hole, step in side the puncture, close it up, then travel to the other side and escape before it closes again? Another observation I have is that the double torus resembles the infinity symbol or two connecting petals of a rose curve. You may refer to my previous article about rose curves. Could multiple universes be connected via more than one torus or multiple worm holes?

If these toruses or wormholes do connect, then I see no reason why a time traveler could not travel from one universe to the next using math and the proper technology. Each torus could be mapped and marked. Each time a new universe is accessed, it can be added to the database and that location can be used to trace one’s steps back “home”.

Food for thought.  Are there any holes in my theories?

## Donald Trump in BTTF2 Movie

Donald Trump in Back to the Future II
by PaulaJedi

Back to the Future is an incredible set of time travel movies produced by Stephen Spielberg. Many already know about the very credible and eerie theory that 9/11 was predicted in the first movie, and if you haven’t heard that theory, I will provide the video at the end of this blog. I decided to take it upon myself to study these movies myself and take a few notes. My results aren’t quite as conclusive as the person who made the 9/11 video. I have a tendency to be disorganized, which is why I haven’t made my own video concerning this topic. At any rate, although it is up to interpretation, I personally believe that Donald Trump’s presidency and some type of murder is predicted in Back to the Future II. Again, I apologize for being vague, but I will try to explain further. After all, if the first movie made a prediction, why wouldn’t the other two?

First, I will reference the first movie. As I watched Back to the Future, enjoying it immensely might I add, I was looking for the 9/11 references but found a few 411 references. In the very first scene, one of Doc’s devices has a red label that says 411. Later, Marty receives a phone number from Jennifer after camping and the clock tower says 10:04. Further more, if you take the date of November 5, 1955 that is mentioned throughout the movie, 9+5 = 14. If that isn’t enough for you, take note that the infamous lightning strike of the clock tower also occurred at 10:04pm, which is why it was stuck there to begin with. More 411’s.

Does this seem far fetched? Let’s take a look at Back to the Future II. The first thing I noticed was the mall sign and clock in the beginning of the movie. The sign says Lone Pine Mall, due to timeline changes, and the time says 1:34. This may be pushing it a little, but 1+3=4, correct? It gets better. Again, I noticed the clock tower after Marty’s hover board adventure still stuck on the time of 10:04. Last, George McFly’s grave had the date of April 1, 1938. April = 4. 1+9 = 10. 3+8 = 11. There’s the 411. Last but not least, we must consider the Back to the Future II release date of November 22, 1989. November = 11. 2+2=4. 411. That concludes the 411’s I’ve found in both videos. Don’t be discouraged, because I noticed something pretty amazing.

In Back to the Future II, Biff becomes rich, runs a casino, etc. Does this remind you of someone? Did you notice his hair color? Two words. Donald Trump. Was Spielberg letting us know that Donald Trump was going to do something significant in our future? Is he going to win the 2016 presidency? Yes, it’s all up to interpretation, but I found this one pretty obvious. Now, how do we tie in 411 and Donald Trump? Is something going to happen on either April 11 or November 4 during his presidency? George McFly was murdered in this movie. Will someone important be murdered, or is that fact irrelevant? Is the name George significant? These are things I don’t know and can only speculate.

Back to the Future II also contains another mystery, the number 9. Two backwards 9’s appear in the smoke above the Delorean once in the movie and a hotel at the end of the movie contained the number 9. I do not know the significance of these, but Spielberg must have put them in for a reason.

Are the Back to the Future Movies more than just fascinatingly entertaining films? Was Spielberg instructed by someone to put these messages into the movies? I will let you decide. I’ve provided the evidence for my theory and below is the video that someone created about 9/11 being predicted in the first movie. Consider these food for thought and tools for thinking. Does Hollywood know more than they let on?

Gears Unseen
An Interview with Temporal Recon,
author of  Conviction of a Time Traveler

by PaulaJedi

Time Traveler John Titor’s infamous 2015 has arrived and many people are waiting in anticipation to find out if the United States will indeed find itself under nuclear attack by the Russians, or instead, find that the concept of divergence has saved us all from this impending doom.  While we wait to find out our fate, perhaps we should revisit a previous interview by Temporal Recon, author of the John Titor related book Conviction of a Time Traveler.  Then, we can read about what else he has to say about time travel.  In the brand new interview below, Temporal Recon is offering us a new glimpse of his mind by speculating on many more topics including John Titor, time travel in general, and even aliens. If you’re ready to begin the journey, buckle up your seatbelts, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

Has your opinion of the authenticity of John Titor changed since you’ve written the book Conviction of a Time Traveler

In a word, no. My understanding of the larger question regarding ‘time travel’ has only deepened and expanded. Not to diminish Titor’s impact or importance, I have discovered that Titor was “merely” one example of the larger phenomenon (No offense, John!).

Where have you discovered these other examples? In the media? The movies? Can you provide any examples?

I am averse at highlighting particular examples, and for a variety of reasons.  Some make themselves known as time travelers while others do not.  They have a job to do and far be it from me to point the spot light of legitimacy upon them when they may not want it.  I simply don’t want to interfere in the work they are doing.

That being said, I will say that I am surprised at the sheer volume of their presence.  We are being visited, literally, all the time.

Do you believe the United States is preparing for martial law, if and when it is necessary? What evidence can you find to support this?

I make a conscious effort to actively avoid the nightly bad news on television, though I get some news online as a means to maintain a modicum of situational awareness. Any specific actions that the United States Government is or is not taking is unknown to me.

This does not make me cold or unfeeling to what I DO see is happening. I simply try to keep in mind, however, that everything we’re seeing, everything we’re experiencing and everything that angers us has already happened (from a future-history perspective).  My peace of mind is more important to me than the tempting addiction to anger and outrage that is fed to us daily. Admittedly, this outlook is a tightrope. Even I am surprised sometimes at what is happening and what is being attempted.

Do you believe that John Titor left messages in other places besides the internet?  Why or why not?  Where?

Thinking a bit larger, I would say this question and the one that immediately follows is a bit out of order.  Rather, I would ask, “do you believe that TT’ers in general leave messages elsewhere?”  and “do you think John Titor did this?”  The short answer is yes, to both questions.  As one example, are you discounting the likelihood that the faxes in 1998 to Art Bell were from Titor?

I was reviewing Conviction of a Time Traveler the other day and I noticed that I made an error:

In COATT,  I stated that the faxes were from an individual who claimed to be John Titor.  This was an error and I apologize for this oversight.  (Incredibly, nobody pointed this out in over 5 years).  The faxes were never signed (or Bell never gave the name if they were).  But the content of the faxes inexorably points to Titor.  Doesn’t this show that they do in fact interact via means other than the internet and before the internet age?

Do you believe other time travelers have done the same?

Nice to see that your question implies and acknowledges the existence of other time travelers out there.   There is a larger stage present with many actors.

Many people still say that none of John Titor’s predictions have come true. Which predictions do you believe actually have come true and how do you feel about using only predictions as proof of time travel, anyway?

A great question for its implications.

First of all, “many people” are simply wrong on many of their assertions.  I learned long ago that usually the single best source of information is my own research.  “Many People” are too often biased by their own assumptions, preconceptions and agendas to be a reliable source of insight or information.  This applies to both the Debunkers as well as the True Believers.  As a result I ignore “Many People.”

While you can look at the arrivals/departures board at an airport to discern a plane’s itinerary, it is not the sole source of truth and sometimes it can be erroneous. Just as an airliner leaves skid marks on the runway indicating landings taking place there, so do the actions of TT’ers leave similar traces.

That being said, the question of whether ‘time travel’ is real or not is largely answered in my mind so I don’t normally go out in search of the latest arrival to our humble little corner of the multi-verse.  There are larger questions to ask than to try to keep track of all the comings and goings.

Explain the concept of “gears” and how it relates to time travel.  Have any new “gears” made themselves known to you since you’ve written your book?

There is a gif on my blog that shows a series of interlocking gears and all turning in concert.  In looking at those interlocking gears it is impossible to discern from whence the motive force comes.  Which gear is the source of power that turns all the others?  This is the underlying question as it pertains to the ‘time travel’ question.  What strings are being pulled? In what direction? Who is doing the pulling?  It is quite elementary to observe the moving gear, but figuring out why it’s moving is a wholly different question.

Another item that must be included in our calculus of the question is the accounting of the gears that exist but go unseen; that are hidden from view but are turning nonetheless.  In looking at the gif on the blog, one assumes he is seeing all the gears; that the full problem set is quantifiable.  If the time travel question has proven one thing to me, it is that the full picture is not known (either by me or the vast majority of those who profess interest in the topic).  There are gears (such as actors, events, motives) that are not readily observable, yet they exist nonetheless.

Regarding the article you shared about the Berenstain bears as well as my own experience with apparent changes in the timeline, do you now believe that humans can or will be able to pick and choose which timeline to visit, despite the seemingly strict rules of the Multiple Worldline Theory? After all, wouldn’t it just be a mathematical issue?

I am no mathematician, but I might ask, were that the case, then we would need to be able to calculate infinity +1.  Is that possible?

Why do you believe infinity +1 is the key to time travel?

Sorry, I believe I didn’t make myself clear here.

I did not mean that “infinity” is the key to time travel.  Rather, I meant that in order to travel to one world line out of an infinite quantity of world lines as you propose, the traveler would first have to quantify infinity.   Infinity, for all intents and purposes, is an imaginary number.  Any “number” per se is a quantity.  Infinity is not a quantity, it is a concept.  As a matter of fact, “infinity” could very well be described as the very inability to quantify at all.  So, returning to your original hypothesis of finding a way to travel to a particular “ZD” WL in an infinite sea of WL’s, you would first have to quantify the set {infinity} and then pick one out of that set. As before, I reserve the right to be wrong here.  Many do not ascribe the appropriate respect to the mathematical meaning of “infinite” and thus miss its true incomprehensibleness.

But do we know for certain that the universe and time are infinite? For one universe to be infinite, are we assuming it is infinite in both directions, like a line, are we not? What are your thoughts?

You are mixing apples and apple trees here, Paula.

I did not say that a universe (world line) is infinitely “long.” I said that it is reported (by TimeTravel_0) that the quantity of WL’s is infinite and is, by definition, unquantifiable.

I believe Titor did state that individual universes do indeed have specific beginnings and endings.

I would also caution against characterizing a universe as a “line.”  This characterization is an artifact of how we perceive moments in time (past then present then future).  A universe (with all its constituent dimensions) likely is much more akin to a bubble where all moments exist simultaneously.

But I do understand (and welcome) the ease that characterizing a worldline as a line offers, especially to the layman.  Just understand that calling it a line is merely a convention, not necessarily the actual truth.

My thought is that once we visit a particular universe, we will have the “map” or coordinates to revisit or even trace our steps backwards.  In your opinion, would this make returning to your home universe any more plausible?

Navigation is a very interesting topic and I welcome the discussion, though if I were to speculate and to answer your question, I would say likely no.

Firstly, can we be certain we can identify all possible dimensions (or at the very least even be aware of their existence) and their values that would be required to reliably describe any given universe in all its conditions? (A WL’s ‘coordinates’ as it were)

Putting the problem in terms of geographic coordinates, consider how we find ourselves on the globe right now: we use geographic coordinates where one series of numbers identifies a line of latitude and a second number identifies a line of longitude.  Where those two lines cross is a discreet and identifiable location on the globe; two dimensions.

When we talk about coordinates of a particular WL, all things being equal, we are faced with one primary and fundamental problem:  quantifying infinity (the globe, as it were).  Any means of identifying a particular world line such as how you hypothesize would necessarily be a relative position relative to all other world lines (and it would have to be all of them) just as all lines of latitude or longitude are relative to a specific datum (the Prime Meridian for example).  And if that quantity is constantly and infinitely changing (an infinite number of universes being created, existing and ending) then identifying one particular WL would be impossible because the datum would constantly and infinitely be changing (or at the very least, never fixed).

What is important to take away here is that this system only works when the total number of lines of longitude and latitude are fixed and permanent.  How would it be possible (for example) to go to the 56th degree of north latitude when the quantity of parallels (both north and south of it) is constantly in flux?

But this line of questions does highlight an interesting aspect of TT_0’s narrative.  He claimed his system could indeed describe a WL,  but only as it is

1. relative to his origin WL, not relative to the totality of all universes within the multiverse and
2. Taking it further, the technology doesn’t describe the WL’s location, but rather it’s ‘amount’ of difference from his original as measured by gravity.  This is key.

If the idea of divergence is a real one, then we can infer that measuring that divergence, and keeping it to a minimum, is of paramount importance in navigation and not necessarily the WL’s relative “location” within the infinitely mutable multiverse.

This hangs quite nicely with TT_0’s claims that returning to one’s own “home” universe is just as impossible.  He said himself that returning to his WL or “origin” was impossible (or at least so infinitely unlikely that renders the possibility impossible).  Remember: infinite means infinite.

So, in terms of navigation within the multiverse, minimizing divergence is likely a much larger factor than many might believe.  As a matter of fact, I am sure that divergence is the single largest factor when it comes to navigation through time (if divergence is a real thing in the first place).

Zero Divergence is mathematically possible. Is math sufficient evidence for proving that one day we can travel to whichever timeline we wish, and is it possible that John Titor was not being 100% truthful about this issue?

Traveling to whichever world line we wish seems to be an impossibility based on my answer above (though I reserve the right to be wrong on the matter).  Also, your question presumes that the number of universes ‘in existence’ is static and “stuck at infinity.”  This is likely not the case since new universes are created in every “moment” (if ‘moment’ is even definable).  Once one gets their head around that, then some semblance of awe takes hold when considering the true scope of what “infinite multi-verse” really means.

Getting to the second part of your question, I imagine John was as truthful as our own understanding allowed within the constraints of what he could and could not talk about.

Do you believe consciousness plays a role in time travel?

A simple question worthy of an encyclopedia’s worth of answer.  Yes, consciousness likely intersects with Time Travel.  I find consciousness to be the underpinning of reality itself.  Because of this, your question is phrased a little backwards.  Instead, perhaps it should be asked thusly:

Do I believe time travel implicates consciousness?

Again, the answer is yes (the transitive property holds here, haha).  It is my firm, experiential, understanding that the multi-verse is composed of consciousness running throughout it.  I might even be drawing a difference without a distinction.  Personally, I tend to think of consciousness as an information field. That field encompasses (and composes) all universes that exist (and have the possibility and probability to exist as probability waves or possibility waves).  Again, I reserve the right to be wrong.

So, if a time traveler is able to move from one universe to another, he likely comes into contact with the pure, unadulterated information field while “in transition” to a different WL. This is pure speculation on my part and I should be careful to not conflate speculation with my own research on the matter, but the theory seems to hang together nicely.

The results of this exposure could and likely results in psychological effects such as the Alter Vue experience.

For Example:

Consider a twig as representative of a single universe.  No branches, no junctions.  Just a simple, straight twig.

Now, consider a lake of water.  That lake represents the consciousness of everything in the multi-verse.

Place the twig in the lake.

That is how I perceive the confluence and interaction between a universe and consciousness.  The small ripples already present in the lake cause the twig to respond by bobbing up and down; Consciousness effecting observable (and quantum) reality.

Now, place another twig in the lake.  This near identical twig is a near identical twin of the other twig/universe, nearly equal in all respects to its neighbor.  You now have two twigs floating in the lake of consciousness.

If you were to tap one twig floating in the water, it will cause ripples indicative and resulting from that tap.  Those ripples will eventually travel to the neighboring twig and cause it to bob in the water.

This bobbing of the second twig is a direct result of actions taken on a neighboring twig and transmitted to the other twig via “consciousness ripples.” Reality causing ripples in the information field.  This theorizes an interplay between the two.

This is my theory of the Alter Vue phenomenon.  The actions on one universe causing results in neighboring universes via the medium of consciousness.

I don’t believe I am breaking any new philosophical ground here, however.  Many before me have speculated on the same possibility outside of the TT question, but it applies nonetheless;  I am merely tying consciousness generally to the TT question specifically.

Out of the many aspects of the TT question, I find the Alter Vue phenomenon the most indicative of the larger scale of reality itself.  It points to a larger context and implies that there is a great deal we do not yet understand about the reality we inhabit.  “Traces of rubber on the runway” as it were.

I’m certain Copernicus would likely be rolling in his grave to learn his was but a very superficial description of a more-than-just-mechanistic universe.  There is a ghost in the Grand Machine.

Do you therefore believe in a global consciousness or is Earth simply a small portion, or a twig as you say, of the universal consciousness you described?

Of course. That ‘twig’ is resting on the surface of the lake, after all.  And that global consciousness is/must be connected to a larger universal consciousness which is then also connected to that underlying lake, the consciousness that allows information to pass between universes.  Again, this is speculation on my part, but informed speculation nonetheless

Do you believe that the “information field” of consciousness can be accessed by human beings?

If the information field exists as I believe it does, yes.  I would wager that we are never separate from it.  It is likely the water in which we swim.

Obviously, aliens must rely on time travel to reach our planet in a relatively timely manner (no pun intended).  Do you also agree that time travel plays a huge role in UFO phenomena?

Obviously?

I have written on the overlap of the UFO and TT question before in my essay entitled “Bending Gravity, Everybody Does it…”.  This essay highlighted the apparent confluence of the technology of bending gravity between the UFO and TT questions. I had no idea it was such an obvious connection to make (just teasing you a little, Paula).

I would clarify that your question presupposes that the UFOs and their occupants are ‘time traveling’ to reach us.  This was not the thrust of the essay and my current understanding, though I respect your own interpretation. Rather, that the UFO pilots are using similar technology that is also employed in TT.  A subtle distinction, but take it for what it’s worth.  Also, your question presupposes and assumes that physical travel is required to accomplish all of their aims, which is not necessarily the case.

Are you inferring that even UFO sightings may not actually be physical?

Not necessarily, but there is evidence to show that not all UFO sightings or experiences are, in fact, physical in nature.

Are the topics of time travel and UFO’s intertwined?

I believe so, yes.  At the technology level at least. See above.

Could some aliens be evolved human beings visiting ourselves from the future?  What are your thoughts?

How do you define human?  If in the next 2 million years we theoretically evolve out of the Homo Sapien Sapien species (a species so nice they named it twice) to a different species (Homo Sapien Proximus?  Homo Sapien Augustus?) then are they still Human by our current definition?  By this argument, and if the theory of evolution is true, then doesn’t that make gibbons human as well?

But to your question, yes, I suppose this is possible.

I wonder, has anyone considered what could be so darn interesting to Homo Augustus 2 million years into our future that would require them to visit us here/now?  Don’t they have more interesting problems to investigate? If you had a time/space machine, would you go back to Earth?  In 2 million years of TT effort and historical investigations, what else could there be to learn? Is there nothing more interesting in the infinite multi-verse than telling the inhabitants who wins an election?

What interesting and pressing problem do they find so interesting and pressing here and now that it requires their attention, even 2 million years into the future???  This sovereign question alone makes one believe that we are living in interesting times, but perhaps not for the reasons that might be readily observable to us now.

Wouldn’t warping space technically involve time as well since one would be pulling time towards him or herself? (Little bit of a Star Trek reference here).

The overlap I have discerned between the UFO question and the TT question rests at the technological level, not its application.  What I mean by this is that it appears, from all known reports on the matters, that the manipulation of gravity as a technology is common to both applications (interstellar travel and “inter-universal” travel, to coin a term).

One could make the comparison to cars versus chain saws.  Both technologies make use of the same principles of internal combustion, but apply it towards completely different ends and in completely different arenas (transportation vs logging). Just because we note the commonality in underlying technology does not mean we use Volkswagens to chop down trees.

The same appears to exist between two other arenas: The UFO question and the “Time Travel” question.  They both have a similar underlying technology though the application of said technology (the manipulation of gravity) appears to be different.

I am merely highlighting the commonality and attempting to unite two questions that have heretofore been separate.

There is an interesting corollary that can be inferred from this as well and tied back to the John Titor story, albeit a speculative one.  That is the idea that the manipulation of gravity and its application in either of these arenas is the ‘state of the art.’  According to reports, which is all we have at the moment, this technology apparently has not been improved upon anywhere/when.

Don’t you find it interesting that, if TT were invented in Tampa in 2036 as TimeTravel_0 claimed, that humanity got it correct right out of the gate?  And that that technique has not been improved upon by any civilization with which we have been in contact, anywhere/when?  If that’s the case, perhaps we don’t give ourselves enough credit for our ingenuity? Or perhaps there’s more to the ‘history’ of time travel tech?

Do we know for certain that John Titor is truly from Earth? Think, for a moment, about the implications involved if Titor came from another planet.  How do you believe this changes the entire John Titor story?

Your question presumes that humans are the only race native to earth that would/could travel through time and traverse the multi-verse. I have no information to the contrary, but let’s acknowledge our assumptions where we find them.  And considering no one physically examined Titor and reported back on the original forums, then yes, this is always a possibility that Titor was not human (by our current definition) and/or from a different planet.  In a spectrum of possibilities, this is one, yes.

If that were the case, my original question comes back to the fore:  What is so interesting that out of a near infinite number of worlds to visit, what makes this one at this time so interesting that they would expend blood and treasure to visit it?

Re-reading that last paragraph, I see an irony: Usually the argument against time travel is “If time travel is real, where are all the time travelers?”  I am explicitly stating the exact opposite, “because time travel is real, why is here/now so damn interesting that there are so many time travelers visiting us?”

Are you referring to the possibility that other types of humanoids lived here before we did and that current humanity could be alien hybrids?

I’ll attempt to answer your question with my own questions on the topic.

As a scene setter, when people discuss long lost civilizations, people invariably ask, “if they lived so long on this planet, where is all their technology and ruins left over from their time here?  Surely we would find something of theirs besides shaped rocks?  Why haven’t we discovered ancient fiber optic cables or computer chips?”

Setting aside for a moment that an ancient civilization solved technological problems the same way we do (using fiber optics or computer chips), many who ask these questions simply do not appreciate the sheer age of the planet (at current estimates).

Take for example plastic.  Conventional Wisdom is that plastic is extremely long lived and how it is the bane of the environment.  Fair enough.  Just doing a quick search on the internet, plastic is estimated to decompose from between 500-1000 years (all things being equal and in very general terms).

This means that if a civilization existed 10,000 years ago, and their civilization was built entirely of plastic, there would be literally zero direct trace of their existence at all.  But the premise states that the civilization existed.  Just because we cannot see their remains does not mean they didn’t exist.  The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Take another example: nuclear waste.  Uranium 234 has a half-life of 245,000 years.  This means that U234 will lose ½ of its radioactivity every 245,000 years.  Quite impressive, no?  Looks like that’s going to be around for a very long time.

Doing some very quick computations, given a starting point of 500 Becquerels of radiation, it will take 17 ‘generations’ (245,000 each) for the radioactivity to reach .007 Becquerels.  This means that U234 will essentially lose all of its radioactivity in 4.2 million years.  4 million years is also a very long time.

But relative to the existence of Earth, it loses its impressiveness.

The earth is currently estimated to be 4.5 billion years old.  If we arbitrarily exclude the first billion years to allow for the earth to form and cool to such a point that life may exist upon it (life as we know it of course), this still leaves 3.5 billion years of history to account for. three and a half billion.

This means that U234 would have lost its radioactivity over 800 times by the time we measured it.

If U234 can be utterly lost to time (8 hundred times over) by the time we measure it, then what does that say about the hypothesized civilization that originally mined, refined and used it?

My point here is that the Earth’s age (as currently estimated) leaves a lot of latitude for civilizations and their artifacts to rise, fall and decompose into oblivion and we would never be the wiser.

If that is the case, don’t you find it a little arrogant to believe that civilization “began” in the fertile crescent 2,000 years ago?  What was happening 2 billion years ago?  We’ll never know.

More of those unseen gears…

Do you personally believe in astral time travel and have you tried it? If so, what were the results of your effort?

Astral Travel is a bit mushy of a word.  I prefer to use simply “Out of Body” since it describes what is happening and not necessarily attempts to label the medium in which it occurs. Yes I have experienced it on a number of occasions.  In answer to your question, simply: “eye opening.”

Are you working on any other projects you’d like to share with us?

Thanks for asking. I no longer actively investigate the John Titor question per se; that has been answered to my own satisfaction, though I am always open to new gems that add to my understanding.

I now am looking more at the larger context in which the larger TT question resides, some of which I alluded to in my answers above.

If you could recommend a book about time travel to someone, what would it be and why?

You mean, besides Conviction of a Time Traveler?  haha.

In terms of reading TT for fun, I have to say that I haven’t read any TT books that weren’t directly connected to researching the topic (as counterintuitive as that may be).  That being said, a book called “Time Machines” by Nahin is a useful desk reference that I have made use of several times.  It is extremely comprehensive and was instrumental in my research several times.  I will say that he has captured some truth in it, though he was likely unaware of it.

Do you plan on writing any more books?

I have considered updating Conviction of a Time Traveler to some small degree but simply have not had the time. There are some tweaks I’d like to make and fix some typos but it is fairly far down the list of my chores.

## Angels or Aliens?

Angels or Aliens?
by PaulaJedi

In my most humble opinion, alternate states of consciousness, alternate universes, time travel, space, and the universe are all tied together. Because I feel they are so closely related, I thought I’d share with you a recent encounter with possible entities. Were they angels? Were they aliens communicating with me telepathically? Or was this simply a waking dream?

Several nights ago, I woke up at 2:00 A.M. to real singing. I thought the kids were awake. Two children were singing “Olga Hassa”. The “s” sound was really drawn out and pronounced. I was really confused, but I actually heard the singing. Later, I decided to look up the meaning of the words on the internet and the term translates to Holy Peace or Especially Holy. Olga is a Russian name and I believe Hasa or Hassa is Swahili. I pondered the possibility that I was dying on account of my sleep apnea. A friend suggested that this was an angel intervention because we both asked an angel to make itself known to me a few weeks ago. I suppose aliens could have been trying to contact me or it was simply a waking dream. Food for thought: I did not know the meaning of those two words before I looked them up. If it were a dream, how did my subconscious know the meanings of the words?

## 2015 Earthquake Part 2

2015 Earthquake Part 2
by PaulaJedi

During the past few months, there seems to have been an increase in earthquake reports.  Maybe something is brewing.  Earthquakes happen all the time. Earth and its plates are not still. But has there truly been an increase in earthquake activity this year?  Let’s take a look. According to sources such as Collective Evolution, New York Times, and the U.S. Geological Survey, there definitely has been an increase in seismic activity in 2015 and many believe it is due to fracking.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/induced/

http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/u/united_states_geological_survey/index.html?inline=nyt-org

Regardless of the cause, I have a hunch that the United States is due for a huge quake sometime this year.  As per my previous article, http://www.microsingularity.net/2015-earthquake/, my concern has been focused on the New Madrid fault line which runs through the northeastern part of Arkansas.  Fortunately, the power plant lies Northwest of the New Madrid Fault Line, but could the nuclear power plant still be effected by a minor or major earthquake?

According to the map below, the power plant isn’t very far from the White River, which is indirectly connected to the Mississippi River via the Black River.  Also, every major river in the United States, according to this map, appears to be attached to the Mississippi. If nuclear waste would contaminate any of these rivers, could you imagine the devastation due to contamination of our ecosystems and our drinking water?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkansas_Nuclear_One

According to CNN, the reactor is over 30 years old  and is made of the same containment system as the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan.  I believe this would be cause enough to worry during seismic activity.  A second reactor, Arkansas Nuclear Two, is a bit closer to the fault line and the Mississippi River.

http://www.nrc.gov/info-finder/reactor/ano2.html

Again, I would like to point out the devasation that could occur if nuclear waste would enter one of the rivers.

At this point, you may be asking yourself why I believe an earthquake in this area could happen this year. My answer is a bit esoteric and strange.  It is not easy to “prove”.  This is the part of the article that will send skeptical readers running, but one reason is a gut feeling. When I see a map of the United States, my focus seems to be on that general area. My second reason would be due to the time traveler John Titor.  As you probably know, he predicted a status quo change in the year 2015 and I am not personally convinced that this change was due to a literal nuclear war. Perhaps it will be caused by nuclear devastation of a different type.  Third, as I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the Book Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank has been tied to the John Titor story. I have read and studied the book thoroughly and believe that the book mapped out safe zones which surround this Arkansas area. Here is the link again if you’d like to read it:

http://www.microsingularity.net/2015-earthquake/

The “war” in Pat Frank’s Book occurs in December of 2015.

Is it mere coincidence that the author of Alas, Babylon describes, in detail, areas surrounding the Madrid Fault Line, or did he know something when he wrote the book? Was the book written for a purpose other than entertainment? Was the book written to be a message to someone else or perhaps a warning about the future? Furthermore, did the author even realize he made the prediction?  Could he have had a psychic experience without even realizing it? There are so many questions and so many ways to speculate, but I feel that I have provided some evidence that supports the possibility of a disaster happening at the Madrid Fault Line and that it could be related to the above mentioned book and John Titor.  I hope that this offers you some food for thought and that you are preparing for any type of emergency that could come your way.  I don’t want to be right about this “hunch”, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Don’t stop living life, but keep some emergency supplies on hand just in case. Don’t forget your gas can.

## Arrival of Time Travelers

The Arrival Of Time/Worldline Travelers
by Anonymous

Hello. This is the first time I’ve ventured to post on any forum (although I am registered on a couple of others), so, please forgive me if I’m not completely clear in my expressed objective as I write this. I’m a person who has been dealing with the angst of coming forward and relating what I personally have witnessed and experienced, in regards to time travel and their travelers.

I do not reside in Florida and have never had the opportunity to travel there. I am located on the west coast and I’m a native Californian. I’m also a city dweller who lives in an area that is well populated. But even those things that are unexpected are allowed to occur in the city.

I first heard the story of John Titor (a little over a year and a half ago) while listening to Coast to Coast KFI 64.0 FM on the radio. It was from a brief guest, interviewed by George Norey, that I learned about the archived threads of this individual who had asserted to be a time traveler from the year 2036. Afterwards, for some uncharacteristic reason, I found myself curiously intrigued by what I had heard and, felt compelled to examine these archived threads for myself.

Up until that time, I hadn’t believed in the feasibility of time travel, nor had I considered it to be an achievement that would, if ever, evolve into something that was realistically viable. Since the exploration that is needed in acquiring the knowledge, as well as the technological means (that would undoubtedly be required for such an enterprising feat to reach fruition) appeared far removed from any truly significant research being conducted by the scientific communities at this time. Nor have they truly indorsed the idea of time travel as conceivably being possible in the future.

But, as I went through and perused the numerous archived postings of John Titor, I was amazed by just how cogent and lucid he was in the manner in which he articulated his thoughts, objectives, concerns and even his rationale for posting. His writings (in my opinion) did not portray him as an individual having an ignoble agenda nor did it render him as a person who was even possibly unstable mentally. On the contrary, he was very coherent with the limited information he had made available regarding how time travel is/was achieved. He even went as far as to post a number of photos so that we would have the opportunity to view the mechanism of time machine itself (along with a few pages from its operation manual as well).

What he had revealed about the technology that would essentially be responsible for advancing the achievability of time travel, actually sounded plausible. And as for the pictures of his time machine, it is indeed credible to believe that this device was designed and assembled from specs that were provided by the military. (I once worked for an aerospace company, which held several contractual obligations with the U.S. Air force).

However, it was three events, in particular, that had occurred during 2005, which had the greatest influence on changing my perspective about time travel. The first was what I had observed for myself on July 26, in the very early morning hours (somewhere between 2 and 3 AM).

It was through my living room window that I personally witnessed a small isolated region in the skyline to the west having an unusual cast to its appearance that seemed strangely and unusually distorted, as though it were shimmering or rippling and slightly illuminated within. I wasn’t sure if this was actually the case or if it was nothing more than the peculiar way in which the streetlights were being reflected onto the pane of the window. And in relationship to where I stood it appeared directly in line to my own position.

To confirm what I was actually witnessing I had decided to turn off all of the lights as a provisional means of avoiding any potential glare or unusual reflection. I then retrieved my binoculars so I would be better able to observe this anomaly more closely. And undeniably it was rippling. (I had also viewed this same strange distortion from a second west-facing window as well).

In addition, it was within this undulating distortion, that I noted there was a detectable central point fixed to the earth. And it was from this focal point that this delineated movement of distortion was being generated and traversed outward in an arcing configuration.

It was from this subtle illuminated configuration that I observed an additional feature; the faint visage of arcing lines that were progressing in magnitude as they traveled in a corresponding manner within this rippled distortion. I remembered that John Titor had given a description of what you would witness during such an event. But he did not mention the arcing lines within this distortion.

I have never observed anything remotely close to what I had seen that morning, nor have I since. I’m not actually sure we even possess the knowledge to exploit this type of technology. And, if we did, for what intended purpose is it being used for, especially here in the city.

As for the location in which it took place, I think it would be better not to disclose it publicly.

I understand that there is videotape of Johns departure. And I understand it (or a copy of it) had been released to another individual(s). I personally have never seen the videotape and would be interested to know if there is a website were I could view it. It’s important to me to know if the distortion I witnessed reflects what is shown on the videotape.

There were additional events, and an encounter, that have taken place but this too I will keep to myself for now.

## Charlotte Moberly & Eleanor Jourdain

The Case of Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain
by PaulaJedi

What exactly happened to Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain in a garden on August 10, 1901?  On this day, the women took a trip by train to the Palace of Versaille. After the tour of the palace, they decided to walk through the garden to see Petit Trianon, a small chateau where Marie Antionette used to frequent. On their way, the ladies became lost. After wandering, they found a deserted, old farm house with an old plow outside of it. They were growing very tired, but finally saw some men that appeared to be gardeners. One man told them to keep walking straight. At this point, they felt an atmosphere change as they came across another cottage with a woman in the doorway handing a jug to a girl. The women described the experience as seeming artificial like a wax museum. Something didn’t feel quite right. There was no breeze, no shading, no twinkling of light coming off any object. It was very strange, indeed. They came across another man wearing a very large, sombrero type hat, and they described him as being extremely homely and rough. He brought them to the Petit Trianon. So, the women crossed a bridge and came upon a woman in an old fashioned dress sketching in the grass.

The women eventually had tea and went home, comparing notes on the incident a week later. The women agreed that the palace grounds were haunted. They decided to return one day and could not find the path they previously walked upon. It disappeared. Later, the ladies published a book about the incident called An Adventure (1911), under the pseudonyms of Elizabeth Morison and Frances Lamont. In the book, they claimed that they saw Marie Antionette.

So, what really happened to these ladies one fine day in 1901? Were they simply tired and disoriented? Were the grounds haunted, or did the ladies experience some sort of time slip or worm hole? You can read about some of the explanations here: Explanations . There are many possibilities that could lean towards the incident not being paranormal, but what do you think? Were these ladies accidental time travel tourists?

## Rudolph Fentz

The Mystery of Rudolph Fentz
by PaulaJedi

In 1950 in none other than New York City, a man named Rudolph Fentz mysteriously appears on the street resembling, a man that disappeared in 1876, and is then hit by a car and killed.According to the legend, items were found on the body including \$70 worth of old money, business cards telling his name and address, a token for a beer worth 5 cents,  a bill for the care of a horse and carriage, and a letter sent to him dated 1876.  Rather than summarize, I’ll post the investigation results here:

“Captain Hubert V. Rihm of the Missing Persons Department of NYPD tried using this information to identify the man. He found that the address on Fifth Avenue was part of a business; its current owner did not know Rudolph Fentz. Fentz’s name was not listed in the address book, his fingerprints were not recorded anywhere, and no one had reported him missing. Rihm continued the investigation and finally found a Rudolph Fentz Jr. in a telephone book from 1939. Rihm spoke to the residents of the apartment building at the listed address who remembered Fentz and described him as a man about 60 years who had worked nearby. After his retirement, he moved to an unknown location in 1940. Contacting the bank, Rihm was told that Fentz died five years before, but his widow was still alive but lived in Florida. Rihm contacted her and learned that her husband’s father had disappeared in 1876, aged 29. He had left the house for an evening walk and never returned. All efforts to locate him were in vain and no trace remained.

Captain Rihm checked the missing persons files on Rudolph Fentz in 1876. The description of his appearance, age, and clothing corresponded precisely to the appearance of the unidentified dead man from Times Square. The case was still marked unsolved. Fearing he would be held mentally incompetent, Rihm never noted the results of his investigation in the official files.”
