    Apologies for not being very active. A rabbit I loved tremendously died and I am heavily grieving, going through the stages of grief over and over again. I have the curse of possessing an extreme love of animals (I even love an alligator), and it is bittersweet because they bring joy, but when they are gone, it is the worse pain anyone could experience. Even right now, I'm starting to tear up. I don't know when the pain will go away. I've experienced it before, so I know it can take a while. I think it took me a week to stop crying about a cat that died, but even then, if I think about them, I tear up. I cannot explain how or why I love them so deeply. I also don't know why God gave this feature to me. Q's partner, Stormy, is now alone and grieving. We are told to get her a new partner ASAP, so we may be checking out a cute, white boy (rabbit...that sounds bad! LOL) tomorrow. I'm not really ready, but it is for Stormy, not me. Stormy is more cuddly than usual because she was used to being groomed by Q all the time. They did everything together. So.... she needs a partner. It would not be humane to not let her have one. Anyway, I'm trying to take time to do the things I normally do, but I am not finding any joy in my usual activities, yet. I usually clean a lot in an effort to keep my mind off it, but then something triggers a memory and the waterfall comes out. Patience, please. I'll be back.

    UFO investigation and reporting is alive and well in government. They are actually getting a bit concerned because there have been UFO sightings over military bases. Note: Unidentified doesn't necessary mean E.T. They are, of course, worried about China and Russia. Anyway, they are starting to become a little more transparent saying, “It no longer has to hide in the shadows,” Mr. Elizondo said. “It will have a new transparency.” Why? Maybe to ease us into it so we don't freak out when we know the truth. Should government be more transparent? Would anyone believe it, anyway? I have a feeling that even if they said "Yes, aliens are here", there would first be a big meme fest on social media, then it would kind of die off and nobody would believe it. What do you think?

    I sent John Anealio the lyric to this at the end of 2010, and he got back to me with music the next day. It's the second song on my 2020 album, Welcome Up: Songs of Space and Time. Here it is on Spotify, and on Bandcamp. At this point, it's the second most listened to song on the album on Spotify. You can find the lyrics to it here (scroll down) as well as an interview John did with me about the song on his Functional Nerds podcast in November 2019. You can also listen to the song at that link, if you'd rather not listen on Spotify or Bandcamp

    Twitter removed this video from Trump's feed. Note: Linkin Park. Hollywood. This will give you goosebumps. Youtube may remove it, but I will keep finding it and reposting it.

    Most of you probably know who QAnon is at this point. If you don't... Go look it up. There's another anonymous poster over on 4chan though, and he's been talking about time travel quite a bit lately. His posts get aggregated here: https://paulfurber.net/bda/index.html From their FAQ page: There's a lot of posts, and most of them are worth a read, but here's the time travel ones: Unsure what to make of all of this... But it's interesting to think about. Has anyone else heard of this guy?

    In order to give any veracity toward your claim, you will need to pass a simple test. " What is the answer to the question I haven't asked you yet?" I will post the question right after you post the answer. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

    Anyone who has read into John Titor knows that his predictions details that, during the 2004 Election, events are set off that lead into an American Civil War, and degraded foreign policy has already left the Middle East in chaos, just as Titor said that Arab and Jewish hostility contributed to the beginning of WW3, or at least was part of it. Furthermore, if you look back, Donald Trump ran in 2000 and almost again in 2004. What if, due to divergence, his Presidency was delayed, and thus so was the overall prediction that the USA would descend into civil war before WW3 began. Nobody can say that his prediction is not eerily similar to events in recent years. It makes you wonder, however, what life might be like if Titor was telling the truth. And if he wasn't, he got a bit too close for comfort with his prediction, don't you think?

    Hi. Just got to ask. Where is Lincoln in that pic? Here is a couple pics to the 19th century spy camera. . I must admit, the more I think of it the more absurd it seems. It’s like history has been somehow “rewritten”:

    No news outlets are good, so I'm at a loss. You can probably find a similar article by another news source, however, we should be able to debate any article online without being censored. My posting an article does not imply that I agree or disagree with it. It is just a conversation piece. All of the major news outlets are posting about this, so take your pick: https://www.foxnews.com/science/pentagon-ufo-unit-spotlight-vehicles-earth https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/research/a33413777/pentagon-ufo-program-materials-vehicles/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8554843/Pentagons-UFO-hunting-department-NOT-disbanded-2012-public-reports.html https://www.huffpost.com/entry/ufo-off-world-vehicles_n_5f1a5815c5b6296fbf404a07?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly9kdWNrZHVja2dvLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAMX-KXYDjIb2btLdp1bNJUYIlkFIHKO_oy6CJa8u-HOPax5GRl3hvSMxYtkjC1-FCKwIAWMfjFKzbDoUKGhtKq5drIWlqW4NsgobsO8c1QDWm9gXYXoix1LT6DBDLFbdivqJP4jkgRYm54bhjVzQrxZ87ehNzZY0ydEW9BmAGgto https://news.yahoo.com/pentagons-ufo-unit-findings-public-220553941.html Here is a link to the search to find more: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=pentagon+ufo&t=chromentp&atb=v179-1&ia=news&iai=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.yahoo.com%2Fpentagons-ufo-unit-findings-public-220553941.html&pn=1

    I'm a fan of classical / theatrical personally, but Y2K Retrosynth was the big thing in my time. I just play by ear, but I could probably benefit from some musical theory. Part of why I never finish songs is because I can't translate the music from my head right. -Oz

    As a musician, I love to hear other people's music. It's a nice composition even though it's incomplete. I'm wondering if you know any music theory or if you just made it by ear.

    You don't want to put all your trust in them; they're just another layer of security. When you're on VPN with one of the mainstream services you're put onto a subnet that other people might be sharing. It's only step 1 because it breaks the trail from you -> internet websites from being so direct. You can also setup your own private VPNs, but they take more work & don't really provide much more than a one stop hop somewhere else. It's not much better to have a localized VPN in one geographic area under one ISP. If you've got another machine you can hop to in a different state it's even better--but the two I mentioned out of the box let you hop across countries. That takes a lot more effort / setup to reproduce on your own. The biggest benefit of using any VPN in general, is that your ISP cannot spy on you. They can monitor all of your traffic / internet messages that leaves your house--but not that which is masked by a VPN tunnel. So you're protecting yourself against your ISP as well as making it more difficult for people to track you down. Since it's not illegal to use VPN an ISP would have difficulty stopping service without good cause. -Oz

    Holy smokes. Those are NICE. Much more expensive than the one I have, looks fun Mine is a Prusa i3Mk3 which make beautiful prints. Ordered the kit so assembled the whole thing myself. Took a couple days but it was one of my favorite projects to date.

    Neat stuff! The sound & motion appears to be kinetic, where the neodymium magnet is ever so slightly touching the coils at high frequency. Whichever coil is weighted to fire off first (if the two fire off at the same frequency but just out of step) or more frequently would be the direction of the motion. If you could slide a piece of paper between the magnet and either one of the coils & the sound changes even a little; you'd know the motion to be kinetic. I'd expect that cube should get pretty warm the longer it's being fluxed around. If you put it on a little platform with wheels it'd be interesting to see if it rolls well! -Oz

    I've added some community guidelines here: https://timetravel.institute/guidelines/ This is a variation on what we've had on prior iterations of the site, but we haven't had "real" guidelines in a while. Thanks to @PaulaJedi for having me realize this a couple weeks ago Nothing within these guidelines really changes what we're doing now, it mostly just adds a place to point to for clarity on the rare occasion its needed.

    John Titors predictions were all fictional. The writer behind his persona was Larry Haber. I'll go ahead and make a Trump prediction though. I predict Trump will expose the perpetrators behind the coronavirus hoax with Attorney General Barr's help. The Dems will be banished as a political party in this country.

    These logs, originally sent to Anomalies.net from an unnamed source purport to show a late night conversation between the time traveler John Titor and several other individuals on IRC. 14 October 2000 TimeTravel_0 has joined the conversation. Yareisa: even now I still change my opinions, there is no definitive G°: well, I'm not completely on the same wavelength as you and apollo, but I like it here. Yareisa: hi time G°: I will be back G°: hi time T Yareisa: good, we like you TimeTravel_0: greetings G°: thanks Yareisa: yw Yareisa: you've been initiated G! G°: sorry I can't stop to chat Time, but it's way past my bed time G°: I have? TimeTravel_0: no problem Yareisa: oh yes...I'll make sure you have plenty of experience! Yareisa: lol G°: thanks... I think. LOL ~) Yareisa: well I have been awake for 24 hours! G°: oh what the heck. maybe I will stop and introduce myself to time.... Yareisa: good! new I could persuade you! Yareisa: knew G°: LOL TimeTravel_0: please...and then myself. G°: Hi TT, my name is steve, but call me G G°: I'm 30, male from England G°: and you? TimeTravel_0: My name is John. Im 38 and a time traveler from Florida. G°: Oh, and my PC could crash at any time, so I'll say goodnight now in case it goes again Yareisa: alright, goodnight G G°: which time are you from? TimeTravel_0: Goodnight. TimeTravel_0: 2036 G°: g'night G°: is it a good year? TimeTravel_0: For me...yes. G°: it's not far to come? TimeTravel_0: Thats right. Yareisa: do you want me to do my intro piece? G°: so you have been born as well. That could be confusing. no problem with there being two of you at the same time then? G°: yes please Y TimeTravel_0: Not at all. In fact the "me" on this world line is upstairs alseep. TimeTravel_0: Hes 2 Yareisa: ty I'm Yareisa, you can call me yar, most do 39 Lincoln, UK G°: upstairs? in your house? G°: yar, ok. Yareisa: or ok yar! G°: lol. I was thinking that... lol TimeTravel_0: Not my house. Im just visiting. G°: tonight? or longer term than that? TimeTravel_0: I've been here for about 3 months. G°: any reason? if you don't mind me asking... I'm interested is all... TimeTravel_0: I'll answer any question you have. I don;t expect you to believe me anyway. TimeTravel_0: Theres a picture of my time machine on my profile. G°: LOL good. I'd really think you were mad if you did... TimeTravel_0: Your reaction is typical. TimeTravel_0: Im used to it. G°: someone invented a time machine by 2036? TimeTravel_0: What would you do if you really met a time travlere anyway? G°: what I'm doing now Yareisa: what would you do if you met an alien? TimeTravel_0: Yes...in fact the major breakthrough happens at CERN in about a year. G°: cern? whats that? TimeTravel_0: The creation of microsigularities. Yareisa: particle accelerator? TimeTravel_0: Yes! TimeTravel_0: You know of it? Yareisa: yes a little TimeTravel_0: Most people here in the US have no idea what Im talking about. Yareisa: they go round until they hit each other don't they G°: lol TimeTravel_0: Yes. High speed proton acceleration. G°: that about sums an incredibly complex bit of kit in one sentence... but yes TimeTravel_0: Ill be happy to go into detail but most people regret it. Yareisa: go on, we'll scream when we can't handle anymore! G°: whats the discovery? a new particle or something? TimeTravel_0: The information has been out for quite a while. TimeTravel_0: CERN is planning to start some very high energy experiments soon. TimeTravel_0: There has been some contoversy ... TimeTravel_0: over the damgers of it. G°: is antimatter involved? TimeTravel_0: SOme are concerned it might be quite hazardous. TimeTravel_0: No... Yareisa: wasn't there something about creating a black hole TimeTravel_0: Yes!!! TimeTravel_0: You've heard of it. Yareisa: yes TimeTravel_0: Actually... Yareisa: a little G°: me too TimeTravel_0: its a black hole about the size of an electron. TimeTravel_0: Im impressed. TimeTravel_0: Where are you both from? TimeTravel_0: England? G°: England Yareisa: yes G°: but different bits Yareisa: certainly different bits! G°: but next door according to US geography TimeTravel_0: Being from 2036...Im not as ignorant as my colonial countrymen. G°: so are you staying with your parents then, whilst your here? TimeTravel_0: Yes. G°: oh come on, it's not going to change that much in 30 odd years.. LOL TimeTravel_0: Really. G°: sorry, Brit joke G°: how did they take it? or have you not told them? Your parents? TimeTravel_0: I have to admit... your both quite polite. TimeTravel_0: Oh they know. G°: hey, the sign on the door says show respect and keep an open mind doesn't it? Yareisa: I'm polite because I understand what its like to be ridiculed TimeTravel_0: Im here because of a promise to my grandfather in 1975. Yareisa: true G G°: I've lived 53 lives on earth before this one. think everyone beleives me when i say that? TimeTravel_0: I appreciate that but I also know Im more entertaining than anything else. TimeTravel_0: I don't discount anything. G°: LOL G°: the truly mad wouldn't realise they were ... excentric? TimeTravel_0: You are more right than you know. G°: the faxct that you don't expect to be believed has to be a plus point.. G°: sorry go on. your grandfather? TimeTravel_0: I find it quite intersting. TimeTravel_0: Yes. TimeTravel_0: I started in 2036, went back to 1975 and then came forward to 2000...now. TimeTravel_0: Did you see the picture of my machine? Yareisa: it wasn't there when I looked TimeTravel_0: If you click on the picture...it takes you to another page. I have 3 pictures posted. Yareisa: k just doing G°: yeah. is it in a cool car? TimeTravel_0: A good car for 1975. TimeTravel_0: The distortion machine is in a 4 wheel drive now. G°: how come from then? was it kept in good condition til 2036? TimeTravel_0: Sorry...time machine. TimeTravel_0: I was sent back to 1975 to get a computer. TimeTravel_0: Its an IBM model 5110. TimeTravel_0: My grandfather worked on it. G°: because...? TimeTravel_0: Thats why I was sent. TimeTravel_0: We need it in 2036 to recode UNIX which dies in 2038. G°: who needed a 5110? and why? G°: lost me there. don't enough about computers TimeTravel_0: the 5110 is able to read the old IBM mainframe code. TimeTravel_0: Its the first protable computer produced by IBM. TimeTravel_0: Actually its about the size of a small table. TimeTravel_0: We need on in 2036. G°: so have you tried changing the past yet? or have you found that everything you do.. G°: has already been done? TimeTravel_0: Hmmm...physics. TimeTravel_0: Actually... world lines are not fixed. TimeTravel_0: They are all different. TimeTravel_0: There is no one "time". G°: but you have a past... you remember things, and if one changes...? TimeTravel_0: Yes... TimeTravel_0: but they are different. TimeTravel_0: The fact that I am here changes this world line. G°: so you havn't tried mucking with anything? TimeTravel_0: No...but I could. TimeTravel_0: Its just not that moral in my opinion. TimeTravel_0: Besides...Im not here for that. G°: thing is, you might not have changed anything because you already were here TimeTravel_0: Thats right!!! TimeTravel_0: Very good. TimeTravel_0: In fact..I've noticed samll changes. G°: I mean you upstairs asleep wouldn't have known if you now was downstairs G°: you have? thats what i was getting it TimeTravel_0: No...he knows me. TimeTravel_0: Yes...small changes. G°: care to give an example? TimeTravel_0: Sure... TimeTravel_0: Football....(sorry) games that were lost that should have been won. TimeTravel_0: Incidental news stories that havent happened. TimeTravel_0: Books not written. TimeTravel_0: Small stuff like that. G°: wow. surely that can't be anything to do with you? TimeTravel_0: No. TimeTravel_0: By definition, this world line is not the same as mine. G°: so how come do you think? TimeTravel_0: Physics. TimeTravel_0: Have you ever been in a room that has mirrors on all the walls? G°: you with the infinate worlds with infinate possibilities theory then? TimeTravel_0: Yes!!! TimeTravel_0: Multipole world theory is correct. G°: like sliders TimeTravel_0: Sliders? G°: tv show G°: before your time... LOL TimeTravel_0: Hmmm...havent seent hat one. G°: hmmm. I must admit, that theory has always bothered me TimeTravel_0: Have you heard of Schrodinger's cat? G°: I mean, why bother? why create all these slightly different worlds? no offence to you, just never liked it. Yareisa: yes G°: yes, talking about it the other day TimeTravel_0: Well...there's a little joke in 2036. G°: can't remember though TimeTravel_0: If the cat had a distortion machine (time) he may not be in the box at all. G°: oh yeah, that was it... LOL G°: ( i was wondering if you were still ther Yar) Yareisa: yes, deep in though Yareisa: thought G°: sorry, I have to call you Yareisa, I don't like yar.... Yareisa: ok! G°: so. what can we do for you tonight TT? How come your here? TimeTravel_0: I enjoy the "paranormal" chat rooms for 2 reasons. TimeTravel_0: 1. I find the people here are more open to ideas. TimeTravel_0: 2. I find it ironic that when what they are looking for falls in their lap, they can't believe it. G°: sorry you've been doing all the talking.... wyrmkin_37 has joined the conversation. TimeTravel_0: Its okay, wyrmkin_37: hello to room TimeTravel_0: I learn a lot from you too. G°: hi wyrm Yareisa: hi wyrm wyrmkin_37: hey G°: so who owns the machine TT? G°: who do you work for? TimeTravel_0: The military. TimeTravel_0: Im a soldier. TimeTravel_0: But civilan time travle is not far off. G°: do they know your in the year 2000 chatting to us when you should be returning with the 5110? TimeTravel_0: Good question!!! G°: LOL How would they know? G°: unless your machine records jumps? TimeTravel_0: No...but i will return just seconds after I left from their point of view. TimeTravel_0: I will only age a bit more than expected. wyrmkin_37: what matter of singularities? G°: Imust say, your a very friendly, chatty soldier... Yareisa: temporal phase shift Yareisa: oops, thinking aloud again wyrmkin_37: anti-matter or dimensional? TimeTravel_0: Well...I only fought in the civil war. The military put me through school and I was qualified for this mission. TimeTravel_0: The singularities distort gravity. TimeTravel_0: Ill be happy to go through the physics. The basics are already known. wyrmkin_37: please........proceed Yareisa: please do TimeTravel_0: Ok TimeTravel_0: In 1967, a physist named Tipler came up with the basic equations for time travel based on massive rotating cylinders...ever heard of him? wyrmkin_37: in omni? G°: no, sorry TimeTravel_0: no problem... TimeTravel_0: are you familiar with black holes and Stephen Halking? TimeTravel_0: Sorry...spelling Yareisa: to some degree, yes TimeTravel_0: Ok wyrmkin_37: .......a brief history of time TimeTravel_0: Yes. TimeTravel_0: Black holes distort gravity...which distorts time. wyrmkin_37: theory TimeTravel_0: At there center is a singularity. G°: yeah, with you so far TimeTravel_0: No...it is proved. TimeTravel_0: In 1969, science invented a clock sensitive enough to show the time difference in a multiple sotry building. wyrmkin_37: kewl TimeTravel_0: On the first floor...time runs slower due to gravity. TimeTravel_0: Clser to the center of the Earth. wyrmkin_37: get outa here G°: also the 2 clocks, one in a plane that flew off and came back different to the other one TimeTravel_0: Yes!!! G°: ok wyrmkin_37: gravitation TimeTravel_0: The effect is magnified greatly in a black hole. TimeTravel_0: As it turns out... TimeTravel_0: If you encounter a black hole that is spinning and has an electrified field, you will not be killed passing through its massive gravitational fiuelds. TimeTravel_0: regreting asking yet> Yareisa: no TimeTravel_0: Ok wyrmkin_37: no Yareisa: I'm hooked TimeTravel_0: In about a year... G°: is this the omeg point theory? G°: omega? TimeTravel_0: CERN will discover some very odd things as a result of their high energy experiments. TimeTravel_0: in about a year. TimeTravel_0: from your point of view. wyrmkin_37: cern? TimeTravel_0: in Geneva. Yareisa: particle accelerator wyrmkin_37: oh TimeTravel_0: They will accidently create microsingularities. G°: makes things go round and hit each other... TimeTravel_0: Which will evaporate very quickly. wyrmkin_37: one in texas? TimeTravel_0: and create a massive ammount of X-ray and Gamma rays. TimeTravel_0: It will puzzle them for a while. TimeTravel_0: Until they figure out how to add and elcrtical charge and capture these strange odd and massive particles in a magnetic field. wyrmkin_37: they shoot electrons at the speed of light.......see what they bust up into TimeTravel_0: Yes. G°: still with you... wyrmkin_37: quarks TimeTravel_0: If you bombard a singularity with electrons... TimeTravel_0: you can alter the size of its event horizon. TimeTravel_0: and thus its gravitational field. TimeTravel_0: By overlapping these fileds from two singularities... TimeTravel_0: you can travel forward and backward through time. TimeTravel_0: Its actuallyu quyite simple. wyrmkin_37: i follow now TimeTravel_0: Thats noit the hard part. G°: didn't tipler say there was no event horizon? TimeTravel_0: No..he said it was possible to approach a massive gravitationl field from certain angles and not get squished. G°: oh, sorry wyrmkin_37: lol TimeTravel_0: Actually...Im not really a physisit. G°: but you know all about this stuff... is that why you were picked? TimeTravel_0: I specialize in 20th century history and my grandfather builds computers. wyrmkin_37: what base? TimeTravel_0: Hmmm....you drive a car and know how to change the oil don;t you? TimeTravel_0: I am based in Tampa Fl. G°: actually, only just.. LOL wyrmkin_37: chas, afb TimeTravel_0: McDill wyrmkin_37: kewl G°: sorry? G°: in english? wyrmkin_37: zoomies Yareisa: thats english?! G°: you airforce wyrm? wyrmkin_37: yes G°: your not working on a time machine are you? G°: come here for guidance... wyrmkin_37: no just came in for chat TimeTravel_0: Altering gravity is not the hard part. G°: LOL Yareisa: go on... TimeTravel_0: Detecting gravity is the hard part. TimeTravel_0: I will tell you a littlke story. TimeTravel_0: When time travel was invented. TimeTravel_0: They built prototypes that would go back in time for a split second and then return. TimeTravel_0: They had sensors and cameras on them. TimeTravel_0: ...and they never returned. G°: and forwards as well? how about a single jump forwards? TimeTravel_0: It was later discovered that the machines were ending up about 15 miles away and 3000 fett in the air. TimeTravel_0: feet G°: doh! TimeTravel_0: The Earth was rotating away from them. wyrmkin_37: synchroniaztion please TimeTravel_0: A system had to be invented that would "hold" the machine to the Earth. TimeTravel_0: Its called VGL. TimeTravel_0: Its based on very sensative clocks and gravity sensors. TimeTravel_0: It stops the time distortion machine if radical changes in gravity are detected. wyrmkin_37: mechanical or electronic clocks TimeTravel_0: You wouldn't want to end up inside a mountain or under water...would you? TimeTravel_0: Cesium. wyrmkin_37: oh G°: isn't all this classified? surely your suppoed to keep it secret whilst in the past? TimeTravel_0: LOL!!! TimeTravel_0: I know you think Im nuts...come on. TimeTravel_0: Who would believe me? G°: just asking? TimeTravel_0: It my best defense. wyrmkin_37: isnt celsium a higher class of quartz? dont know G°: but we don't have long to find out if you are or not TimeTravel_0: Besides...do you know how big a hole 2 sigularites make when their magnetic filed colpases? G°: won't be long before CERN (?) make the discovery TimeTravel_0: Thats right. G°: no TimeTravel_0: Welll....either do I. But I don;t want to know. G°: LOL wyrmkin_37: i read omni since it came out and i do want to know G°: maybe I'll pass on the theory to someone who does their own experiment and... BANG! wyrmkin_37: lol TimeTravel_0: I've been trying. G°: any joy? TimeTravel_0: But Im the crazy yank wyrmkin_37: lmao G°: What do you expect? you didn't tell them you from the future did you? TimeTravel_0: You might be interested in this... G°: if you really wanted to, you should have just passed on the theory G°: go on.... TimeTravel_0: Its very hard to convince someone you travel in time unless you're related to them. G°: or know something that will happen... TimeTravel_0: Good point...but you'de be surprised. G°: not that I'm asking you to tell me something, cos I don't want you to TimeTravel_0: They usually think its your fault. G°: LOL G°: bummer... wyrmkin_37: very interesting TimeTravel_0: That's why I love these chat rooms. wyrmkin_37: me too TimeTravel_0: I know that nothing I say will make a bit of difference. wyrmkin_37: i can drink my jack and coke and learn a few things G°: not true.. this is the place where you can make a difference. TimeTravel_0: Im not feeling sorry for myself. TimeTravel_0: Im actually learning to like the people here. TimeTravel_0: You have a very bad reputaion in 2036. wyrmkin_37: TT........who me? TimeTravel_0: lol...in general. wyrmkin_37: heard that G°: how about those 80's lot though. they must be worse... TimeTravel_0: Don't get me started. G°: LOL TimeTravel_0: At least your commercials and video games have gotten beeter through the years. G°: and as for the 70's! Sheesh! wyrmkin_37: 60's were cool TimeTravel_0: Generaly... this period is thought of as the time when they had it all and squanderd it. TimeTravel_0: You diserve your fate. wyrmkin_37: but fun was had TimeTravel_0: That's true. TimeTravel_0: Can I ask you brits a question? G°: sure Yareisa: yeah sure G°: shoot TimeTravel_0: When I was a kid...back in 2012... G°: a good year for cyberpunk... TimeTravel_0: I used to watch a DVD called UFO that was made in England. TimeTravel_0: Ever heard of it? G°: oops no, that was 2030, sorry G°: the tv series? 70's? wyrmkin_37: i saw it on regular tv TimeTravel_0: Yes!!! TimeTravel_0: You've seen it? Yareisa: oh yes I remember that one TimeTravel_0: Wow...we do have something in common. G°: yeah, dreadful outfits! TimeTravel_0: No one has heard of it here. Yareisa: straker wasn't it G°: and hairstyles! TimeTravel_0: I loved that show! G°: so TT, there is something you can tell me TimeTravel_0: Yes? G°: what happens in December 2012? wyrmkin_37: i saw it the good guys were called shadow? G°: anything? TimeTravel_0: Ahhh..the acient miayn prohecies. G°: the very same TimeTravel_0: wyrmkin_37: mayans TimeTravel_0: sorry wyrmkin_37: ? TimeTravel_0: Nothing happens...but there is a nuclear war in 2015. G°: bugger TimeTravel_0: Its not that bad. TimeTravel_0: The bombs are much cleaner. G°: i guess not wyrmkin_37: china and russia? TimeTravel_0: There's a civial war in the US. wyrmkin_37: whoa? TimeTravel_0: Russian launches against China, Europe and the US. G°: it was bound to happen sooner or later... TimeTravel_0: Can;t you see it coming? G°: whatamistaka to maka! TimeTravel_0: Does anyone read history anymore? wyrmkin_37: i saw russia and china but not usa TimeTravel_0: From my point of view...Russia helps us. We win. G°: how so? TimeTravel_0: But Im a little pissed right now. Is that still the right word? wyrmkin_37: wheat, money........lets make friends G°: ? TimeTravel_0: The civil war in the US has two sides. TimeTravel_0: I fought on one side. G°: they usualy do wyrmkin_37: proceed sir................ TimeTravel_0: The other side got nuked by Russia. G°: i see G°: not north and south again was it? TimeTravel_0: In 2036, they are our largets trading partner. TimeTravel_0: No...more like city angainst country.' wyrmkin_37: majorities against minorities....... TimeTravel_0: Yes. TimeTravel_0: You know...guns versus no guns. TimeTravel_0: Power versus no power. wyrmkin_37: time to pour another jack and coke TimeTravel_0: Un troops versus no UN troops.

Yareisa: bye G G° has left the conversation. Yareisa: I've given up going to bed now, might as well keep going! TimeTravel_0: Time is relative. TimeTravel_0: But sleep.... Yareisa: forgotten what sleep is! TimeTravel_0: What do you do for a living? Yareisa: by day...web site design TimeTravel_0: Is your family close to you? Yareisa: no TimeTravel_0: That's the one thing I will never understand about this time. Yareisa: whats that TimeTravel_0: Don;t you feel alone without them? Yareisa: not really, I'm used to being alone TimeTravel_0: Its very diffrent in the future. TimeTravel_0: I can't imagine being without my family. TimeTravel_0: I don;t know if I should pity or admire you. Yareisa: I'm not sure either! wyrmkin_37 has returned. Yareisa: wb wyrmkin_37: hello folks TimeTravel_0: greetings Yareisa: I am known as a Warrior, I'm used to fighting to survive wyrmkin_37: been there TimeTravel_0: In the future, life is organized around the family. wyrmkin_37: good TimeTravel_0: and the community. Yareisa: then it looks like I have a problem! TimeTravel_0: 'I can;t imagine what it's like to live alone. Yareisa: I rather like it actually TimeTravel_0: If I may ask...why? Yareisa: I can do what I choose, when I choose without having to answer to anyone TimeTravel_0: What about it appeals to you? wyrmkin_37: later folks wyrmkin_37 has left the conversation. TimeTravel_0: good night Yareisa: Sometimes I miss not having company Yareisa: but I'm very independant TimeTravel_0: Your answer is typical of the people of your time. TimeTravel_0: Do you feel you would be hindered by "answerinfg? to someone? TimeTravel_0: What does that mean? Yareisa: I was hindered, that is why I evicted my husband TimeTravel_0: Please explain. Yareisa: I am a deeply spiritual person, I needed to grow, to expand, and he stopped me TimeTravel_0: How...if its not too personal. Yareisa: he was a control freak, I had to do what he told me to do etc TimeTravel_0: I think you would like the future. Yareisa: why is that TimeTravel_0: Its a common complainyt that people feel hindered. TimeTravel_0: In the future, life is more challenging. Yareisa: is it more spiritual? TimeTravel_0: There is little room for petty problems. TimeTravel_0: Yes! TimeTravel_0: Mystery returns to existance. Yareisa: beyond the human TimeTravel_0: There are fewer luxuries but life is more enjoyable. Yareisa: I never like luxuries anyway Yareisa: I live basically Yareisa: do you consider yourself human TimeTravel_0: I wish I could show you the time machine and give you hope. TimeTravel_0: Yes. TimeTravel_0: I am very different from you. Yareisa: in what way TimeTravel_0: My life is very different. TimeTravel_0: I harbor a ccertain ammount of anger toward this time. Yareisa: why TimeTravel_0: I see an entire population of people who are sleeping. TimeTravel_0: I fell in love once and she passed away. TimeTravel_0: I blame you for her death. Yareisa: why TimeTravel_0: She died of brain cancer. TimeTravel_0: You may find this interesting. TimeTravel_0: WHen I was training for "time travel"... TimeTravel_0: ...a great deal of what we did was pyscholgical training. TimeTravel_0: In one of our exercises...we had to go back in time and convince "ourselves" to do something we regretted not doing in our own life. TimeTravel_0: I told myself to get married before she died. TimeTravel_0: SOmething I was unable to do. TimeTravel_0: I hate you for that. Yareisa: hate me personally? TimeTravel_0: Sorry.... I don;t hate you. TimeTravel_0: I mean this time. TimeTravel_0: Jacksonville Fl took a direct hit. TimeTravel_0: The radiation killed her. Yareisa: I cannot say sorry for something that hasn't happened yet, but I am sorry TimeTravel_0: I talk too much Yareisa: and I don't talk enough TimeTravel_0: I just wish things didn;t have to happen athey way they will. Yareisa: we cannot change it? TimeTravel_0: Its too late. Yareisa: I sensed that TimeTravel_0: I regret what you could have been bot what will result.

Yareisa: the link to my web site is on there too Yareisa: one of my favourite tracks is, Veterans of the Psychic Wars TimeTravel_0: Thats quite a webb ste...hold on. Yareisa: k TimeTravel_0: Im asking my father. TimeTravel_0: He says thats from "Heavy Metal"? Yareisa: I've got it on a compilation, Workshop of the Telescopes TimeTravel_0: "Cultosaurus Erectus" is his favorite. TimeTravel_0: I have no idea what he's taling about. Yareisa: probably best not to, might cause a glitch in the space time contimuum! TimeTravel_0: Godzillia? Yareisa: yes thats a good one TimeTravel_0: Hes lauging.

    What are your thoughts concerning self driving cars? It seems that there will always be accidents until ALL vehicles are self driving. As long as you place human error into the equation, there will be fatalities, sadly. I really wouldn't trust them, yet. We are at such a primitive stage. Well, Elon Musk is, of course, putting his hand in the cookie jar. "I remain confident that we will have the basic functionality for level five autonomy complete this year," he said, as reported by Bloomberg. He's very confident he can do it. Thoughts?

    Version 1.0.0


    I've personal 'days in the past months' have done this research on time travel and scientific discoveries upon this mysterious subject. I've further learned more upon time slips, time displacement, and temporal auditory,. These docs relate to current filmed TV series in the last three years and mentions of other various related fantastic topics that followed as I continued my unique study. A few are "The Time Ministry", "Timeless", and "Quantum Leap"` Has anyone ever looked up "Journey to the Center of Time", TV series "Timecop", and select episodes 'remake' "Outer Limits" ? If you simply Google 'time travel films 'or' tv series, you'll likely find some of the rest that I didn't mention.

    Great point. Someone needs to sit behind the wheel and be able to override. Either that, or the on board computer needs to be tied in with weather conditions and give warnings. Still, I see a need for the override.

    IMHO, we should ALWAYS have a human override. Human technology is not flawless. If the computer goes bad, we need to be able to manually drive.

    The "levels of autonomy" are interesting, not something I've heard before. Check this out: https://www.synopsys.com/automotive/autonomous-driving-levels.html I think it's certainly possible to be at that point very soon. I hate driving anyways, and welcome our self-driving overlords... To the extent that Big Brother doesn't decide to use it as a suicide tool.

    If you've ever seen Back to the Future, you probably know that you shouldn't be messing with things your parents did before you were born. At least, not unless you want to erase yourself from existence. The plot of Robert Zemeckis' 1985 blockbuster is an excellent example of the Grandfather Paradox. However, the concept is much richer and more profound than that. The Grandfather Paradox is a self-canceling contradiction that arises from changing the past. A person who travels through time to and kills their grandfather before the birth of their own parents is the classic example. The change caused by the time traveler would logically negate their own existence. However, since the traveler never existed, then they never created that difference. Contradictorily, the absence of the traveler means the change never took place. Is the traveler born after all? Name notwithstanding, the Grandfather Paradox does not solely depend on killing one's own grandfather to prevent one's birth. Any action that changes the past in a contradictory way fulfills the definition. The Origins of the Grandfather Paradox The earliest known appearance of the Grandfather Paradox is a novelette called Paradox, written by Charles Cloukey in 1929. Although Cloukey was only 16 at the time of publishing, the story outlines many intricate paradoxes of time travel. In the end, his book concludes that backward time travel is, in fact, impossible. Cloukey writes, "the fact that I was pre-sent to kill my unfortunate grandfather would show that I had been born. Therefore, I could not have killed my grandfather. It was hopeless." Many other science fiction stories of the early 20th century dealt with this paradox, with examples arising in works such as Ancestral Voices by Nathaniel Schachner and Future Times Three, by René Barjavel in 1943. Variants of the Grandfather Paradox The grandfather paradox includes any contradictory change to the past, and the concept has many variations. A notable example is Physicist John Garrison's 1998 publication entitled Superluminal Signals: Causal Loop Paradoxes Revisited. In it, Garrison describes a machine which receives a signal from itself to turn itself off before that signal is sent. Other variations include going back in time to kill yourself as a child, or going back in time to kill Adolf Hitler before his rise to power. Hitler's murder is an exceptional version of this paradox. Instead of preventing the action of time travel, killing Hitler removes any reason for time travel at all. However, as Hitler's existence was so pivotal, anyone born after the war would have their life influenced in some way. It's an interesting thought experiment. Some ideas support a parallel universe answer to the grandfather paradox. This variant suggests that when a time traveler kills their grandfather, they are creating (or arrived in) a separate timeline, individual, and apart from the one the traveler came from. Some may argue that this isn't real time travel, but it does solve the paradox. The Philosophies Behind the Grandfather Paradox Regardless of whether time travel to the past is possible, we can use logic to show that changes to the past can result in a logical contradiction. If events in history happened in a certain way, and we know our records to be accurate, then events can't have occurred in any other way. A time traveler should not be able to change the past from the way it is, meaning it is only possible for them to act in a manner consistent with those events. The study of the Grandfather Paradox has led some to conclude that time travel is paradoxical by its very nature and, therefore, impossible. The philosopher Bradley Dowden made this argument in the textbook Logical Reasoning, maintaining that the likelihood of creating a contradiction entirely rules out time travel to the past. Still, some philosophers and scientists believe that time travel into the past is not logically impossible, provided care is taken not to change said past. Bradley Dowden himself was persuaded to change the views outlined in Logical Reasoning after a discussion with famed philosopher Norman Swartz: I found your argument about the visitor from 2045 very convincing. I guess I've never thought very seriously about the issue of time travel. Yes, I now believe it is logically possible to build a time machine which allows travel into the past where one does not change the past. This would be 'real' time travel, not just a disembodied existence passively viewing the scene. The person could contribute to making the past just the way it was. Previously when I've thought about time travel into the past I've thought of that kind of travel that meets the demand "Oh, I wish I could go back and make the Toronto Blue Jays lose the World Series, or go back and make Adolf Hitler slip on a banana peel and die at the age of seven." That sort of time travel, in which the past does get changed, is logically impossible, and that is the only kind of time travel I was considering when I wrote page 202 of my textbook. So I'll change my ways in the future. I'll change the first sentence at the top of page 202 to say "Nobody has ever built a time machine that could take a person back to an earlier time to change what has happened." No, I believe the whole paragraph should be rewritten. Full conversation can be found here: https://web.archive.org/web/20200302044843/https://www.sfu.ca/~swartz/time_travel1.htm Causal Loops and the Grandfather Paradox Time travel to the past, which does not create a Grandfather Paradox, creates a causal loop. The Novikov self-consistency principle declares one view on how backward time travel would be achievable without the creation of paradoxes. According to the theory, physics in or near closed timelike curves (or a time machine) can only be compatible with those of the universal laws of physics. This means that only self-consistent events can occur, so actions taken by a time traveler must have been part of history all along. Does this imply that a time traveler can do anything they want without consequence? Novikov used an example by physicist Joseph Polchinski for the Grandfather Paradox. A billiard ball is heading towards a time machine, and the ball's older self emerges from it and strikes its younger self. Therefore, the younger version of itself never enters the time machine. Novikov explains: There is a mistake in the previous discussion (the reason for the 'paradox'): when at the beginning of our discussion we continued the trajectory a after point z, we did not take into account the influence of the impact and considered the motion of this ball along the trajectory a2 without taking into account this impact. This means that we did not take into account the influence of the future on the past. Source: https://web.archive.org/web/20151117014658/http://thelifeofpsi.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Lossev-Novikov-1992.pdf MIT's Seth Lloyd and other researchers have proposed an augmented version of the Novikov principle, in which probability molds itself to stop paradoxes from occurring at all. These outcomes would become stranger and more incomprehensible as one approaches a forbidden act, as the universe must favor improbable events to avoid impossible ones. This theory is explored at length in Stephen King's novel, 11/22/63, in which the protagonist faces increasingly unexplainable obstacles while trying to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The Grandfather Paradox and Quantum Physics Physicists, David Deutsch, Daniel Greenberger, and Juergen Tolks have asserted that quantum theory allows for time travel where the past must be self-consistent. Deutsch reasons that backward time travel only produces only self-consistent solutions, and that violating chronology imposes constraints that are not apparent through classical reasoning. In 2014, researchers published a simulation validating Deutsch's model using photons in an experiment: In their new simulation Ralph, Ringbauer and their colleagues studied Deutsch's model using interactions between pairs of polarized photons within a quantum system that they argue is mathematically equivalent to a single photon traversing a CTC. "We encode their polarization so that the second one acts as kind of a past incarnation of the first," Ringbauer says. So instead of sending a person through a time loop, they created a stunt double of the person and ran him through a time-loop simulator to see if the doppelganger emerging from a CTC exactly resembled the original person as he was in that moment in the past. Deutsch uses the language of "multiple universes" in his article to represent the quantum phenomena, but notes that this terminology is inadequate. Others have taken this to mean that this model of time travel involves emerging in a different universe, which avoids the grandfather paradox.
