Forgive me for my ignorance of the Mayan calender. I must admit, I've only briefly scanned the information available. In fact, what little I know
I've gathered from this website. I've noticed a common fixation with the year 2012 here, the world ending, and many claiming to believe this because
of the Mayan calender ending at that point.
I'm actually quite confused as to how my error in understanding of how their calender works ruins the validity or anything I say or proves that I'm
not a time traveler. In fact, I find it to be quite irrelevant. I've never claimed to be an historian. Does one need a great knowledge of the past to
travel to the future? Admittedly, I probably should not have mentioned the calender in my original post and, for that, I apologize.
You may be wondering why I even bothered making this post at all? I simply wanted to start a dialogue with the members of this site. I was originally
drawn here, in part, by my fascination with the paranormal. The majority of my people did not believe in the afterlife; I belonged to a culture that
treated science very much as their religion. To them, what little time we have on this earth is ALL we have. To believe that there is life after
death, or a soul is laughable. Don't get me wrong, not EVERYONE feels that way, but the overwhelming majority do. I wouldn't be lying to tell you I
was more than a bit disheartened to find out that what we think of as ghosts are merely fellow time travelers. I'll get to that later, though. First,
I'd like to address some of the questions laid forth to me in this thread.
I noticed one of you was curious as to how I learned english. As I mentioned earlier, I haven't been home for over twenty years. Much of my early
travel was spent in 18th century france. I first came to your United States in 1928. I'm currently in England, in a few hours I may be in Chicago.
Why? The answer to that is overwhelming confusing. I think one, no, I know that one of you WILL figure this out in due course.
Either way, I've had more than enough time to adapt to your ways and even learn your language. In fact, that was one of the reasons I was chosen to
go on this journey. I've always picked up other languages(especially speaking them) rather quickly.
I noticed another poster asked about my racial makeup. I'm quite similar in appearance to what your people call asians. My tribe call ourselves what
would be pronounced in your language sounding very similar to "Grendox". I think you would find our social structure rather fascinating. I am a
"nialect" which is basically equal to your middle class.
In 2047 a scientist by the name of Robin Santra effectively "blows the whistle" on time travel, presenting overwhelming proof of its existance to
the general public. The proof is, in fact, so good that people are shocked. I really don't think your people were ready for this. You may be asking
yourself, "If the government has access to a time machine, why didn't they just go back and stop this man before he could talk?" The answer is very
simple. The method of time travel your people use is quite ineffective. I don't think they could have done this if they wanted to. Early experiments
in changing history failed miserably, so much so that people wondered if the machines worked at all. Many of your christians raised theories that the
machines themselves were simply a portal to hades. In some ways, I'd tend to agree.
I apologize but it seems that I can't send a U2U until I have twenty posts.
