Pay special attention to what Dr. Brown (physicist we talked to) had to say. I think the email quotes start somewhere around page 14 or 15, maybe?
I wish that was what i was looking for but it wasn't.
I have a buddy who works on military computers for a gov contractor who after looking into it confirmed the 5100 info. Part of the astounding thing is
that my buddy who used to have a 5160 had no clue about the 5100 until he looked into it. I'm satisfied with my friends knowledge of computers and
honesty, and trust him WAY more than any text i see on the web.
The UNIX Epoch is nothing special. I've worked with unix enough to have been aware of the issue with 2038 myself, so i wasn't surprised or impressed
with Titors knowledge of it.
The physics behind his tie machine are solid. There are even a few thing within it that seem to be based on string theory yet to be developed. It
looks like theory is headed that way but to date it is missing a few key things. Toroidal microsingularities are already schedueled for the new CERN
collider too. Though the collider was going to be used for just "microsingularities" the toroidal singularities just popped outta theory over the
last 12 months.
His world line concept of time travel is also supported by theory, though i'm not impressed by it because not only is it a 20 year old concept but
was even used in the sci-fi book Timeline by Michael Criton.
Part of my facination with Titor is that i find myself on opposite ground with him then i do with other things i come across on ATS. This time i see
debunkers making unfounded leaps and arguments riddled with falacies.
While i think Titor was just very good at fooling people, it is that fact that amazes me. He was probably just a well educated or read guy messing
with people but nothing he said was incorrect, technicaly. As for his predictions and possible contradictions of himself i really don't care, people
do that all the time when both lying and telling the truth. What does atound me is that he is shrugged off as a hoax when i see no good form of
Basicly, i'm confused as to why the first person to have some extreme story that does mesh with science is being ignored.
Ah well, in a year or two we will or won't be at civil war and it will be a mute point. But either he was the best hoaxer I've ever encountered (my
current belief) or a time traveler (or rather dimentional traveler).
