It is a mistake to give anyone your unwavering belief...but you will find that out yourself in 2005.

(One last question, Can anybody operate the 204 unit? Or is it safe guarded by a "key of some kind? Thanks for answering. Yes,
you would be welcome at my home.)
The unit has two security systems to protect it from "most" people. One, it has a code that must be entered correctly. Second, and probably more
effective now, the unit can not be used by anyone who can't add and subtract.

The first "leg" of my trip was from 2036 to 1975. After two VGL checks, the divergance was estimated at about 2.5% (from my 2036). I was "sent" to
get an IBM computer system called the 5100. It was one the first portable computers made and it has the ability to read the older IBM programming
langages in addition to APL and Basic. We need they system to "debug" various lagacy computer programs in 2036. UNIX has a problem in 2038.

It is thought that being close to a gravitational field has a biological effect on all matter including cells. The effect is to slow the movement of
electrons in the orbits of their nucleus which thus slows the mechanical and bilological functions of the observer close to the gravity. Thus the
passing of time is a local phenomenon depending on how close you are to a gravitational source.
This is one example of a theory involving "time shells" progressing in size and intensity around a gravitational point from all matter. The more
massive the object, the larger and more influencial the time shells around it (like an onion). Another offshoot of this theory is that kinetic energ

The unit is portable between vehicles. It is very heavy and requires a "stiff" suspension. The unit is currently in a 4WD.

What you do on your world line is your own business. I can't think of any better way to start a war than for someone to figure out how to make a time
machine. Go for it.

For a change, I have a question for all of you. I want you to think…think very hard. What major disaster was expected and prepared for in the last
year and a half that never happened?
21 November 2000 10:41 (about the future) 82
On my world line, life is not easy. We live in a world recovering from years of war, poison, destruction and hate. All of it, courtesy of the thinking
and actions of people that live right now in the same world you do, worrying about which stocks to buy or whether or not a stranger is lying to them
on the internet.

My first experience with war came when I joined a shotgun infantry unit at the age of thirteen. In the 4 years I served as a “rebel”, I watched
hundreds of people get shot, burn and bleed to death. I know exactly where I was and every detail of the exact moment the first nuclear warheads began
falling on Jacksonville.

While you sit by and watch your Constitution being torn away from you, you willfully eat poisoned food, buy manufactured products no one needs and
turn an uncaring eye away from millions of people suffering and dying all around you.

1.What exactly would an observer see as they saw you arriving in this time? and exactly what would they see as
you departed? would you just appear suddenly or slowly? would you look like a heat mirage for awhile? any light effects? or hazy misty shimmering
- The observation of time travelers "appearing" suddenly in a world line do not happen very often. There
are two cases and two points of view to consider. In the first case, the time machine does not move as it goes from one world line to another and then
returns. The people watching on the original world linewould wave good bye and watch as the machine is turned on. There would be a static discharge
and the air would appear to "ripple" as if it were getting denser. Then, it would stop and the machine will have appeared to have gone no where. If
the machine doesn't move its position from world line to world line, the observer would not see it disappear at all. In the second case, if the
machine is moved, it would disappear from the viewpoint of the observer and return in a different location based on where it was moved and turned on
from the destination world line. In that case, the rippling seems to dissolve the machine and it disappears. If that happens while you are watching it
leave and you expect it to return, you know it was moved or had a serious malfunction. It is actually quite dangerous to get too close to a distortion
unit as it enters or leaves a world line. It vents radiation and has a very strong localized gravity field. Personally, I worry about that a great

2.What is the dimension of the field around the car? How many feet out from the car would you say it goes?
-It can be adjusted to some degree. The CG (center of gravity) is adjustable within about 4 feet and the
unit is effective about 10 to 12 feet in either direction from there. The vertical distance is quite a bit shorter and is determined by sensors in the
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 88
3.approximately in inches how much of the ground is taken with you in one trip?
-Depending on weather or not you are going forward or backward, the footprint of the unit is different. I
wouldn't quite say it "scoops" up the ground cleanly. It sort of vibrates it loose and takes it along for the ride. It looks like someone raked the
ground an inch or so deep with a small hand hoe or shovel. The negative ergosphere "scoops" up the front and back areas of the field. The positive
ergosphere leaves a longer area near the center of mass. Its about a cubic foot of dirt spread out over six square feet or so.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 89
4.If they put the device in a house and turned it on what do you think would happen?
-It might not be as destructive as you think. Depending on how close any object is to the field, it might
not do any damage at all except for the floor.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 90
5.what would happen to a bird or small animal that ran across the field right when it was producing the field to
-It would be quickly spread out over the lateral length of the gravity field. Imagine being squished and
stretched at the same time. I would imagine anything left after that would be vaporized and generate static electricity.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 91
6.how hot would you say the temperature gets on the outside of the car while in operation?
-Very! hot. Depending on the power setting, 100 to 120 degrees is average.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 92
7.is the car in drive mode when the device is activated or is it totally turned off?
-The car is off and the brake on.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 93
8.has the device been tested on ships and airplanes?
-Not that I'm aware of. Its important that it remain as still as possible so the gravity sensors can get a
good lock. The divergence confidence would be way off if the vehicle was moving.
22 November 2000 20:58 (about time travel) 94
9.do you wear special uniforms when you time travel? what do they look like and does your group have a timetravel
emblem or group name?
-I wear a standard civilian service uniform during instruction and training. Its sort of a cross between an
army uniform and overalls. We do have a quarter master who distributes clothing appropriate to where ever we are going. There is a patch. It is round
and has a graphic of a Kerr singularity (sort of looks like an eye with gravity waves around it) with two spiral paths running through it's center.
One path represents the "safe" way and the other is the path to God. The bottom of the patch has my unit number along with "Temporal Recon"
printed on it. However, we remove any identification and patches before we go anywhere.

(What type of senser is number seven?)
That sensor detects various parameters from the singularity.

There is another page that depicts the computer and clock systems. That technology is not new and not very interesting.

On my world line, it is known that the 5100 series is capable of reading all the IBM code written before the widespread use of APL and Basic.
Unfortunately, there are none left that anyone can find on my world line.

Technologies themselves are not lost but some of the older tools and techniques have been lost. I think there is more detailed information about the
war posted earlier.

The energy stored in the singularity is used to create the distortion fields. That energy is created in a particle accelerator. I’m not sure what you
mean by “temporal turbulence”. What effect would that have that would need to be overcome?

When I leave, I will return to 2036. The computer I have is expected there. I am unaware of any “true” interdimensional device available on this world
line now. I would image the effects of such a device would be hard to hide.

(Can you tell us exactly what event started the war? Is there any way we can stop it?)
- Do not eat or use products from any animal that is fed and eats parts of its own dead.
- Do not kiss or have intimate relations with anyone you do not know.
- Learn basic sanitation and water purification.
- Be comfortable around firearms. Learn to shoot and clean a gun.
- Get a good first aid kit and learn to use it.
- Find 5 people within 100 miles that you trust with your life and stay in contact with them.
- Get a copy of the US Constitution and read it.
- Eat less.
- Get a bicycle and two sets of spare tires. Ride it 10 miles a week.
- Consider what you would bring with you if you had to leave your home in 10 min. and never return.
The war is a result of faulty politics and desparation from Western leadership during the US civil war. Yes, I suppose you could stop it.

Take a close look at the county by county voting map from the last elections.

(Did they use biological and chemical weopons in the war besides nukes? Did they use mind control weopons?)
Yes there were bio and chem weapons used. No mind control weapons but there are new "non-leathal" weapon systems that turn out to be quite leathal.

( Have you discovered the cure for cancer or aids yet?)
Aids...no. Cancer...some progress.

(What is the popular music like?)
Most of the same music you enjoy is available on archive. However the days of mega-stars playing multiple track studio produced music and lip synching
on a huge stage are pretty much isolated to your time period. Like everything else, music is much less centralized. The general trend is away from
“computer generated” music and more toward real people playing real instruments. Music is much more of a personal experience. More people know how to
read music and play together in small groups.
06 December 2000 21:36 (about the future) 110
(Are there any social prejudices)
Yes there are. However, as odd as it may sound, it serves a useful purpose in my time. First, you must realize that your experiences with “prejudice”
and mine are different. I would characterize the intolerance you have here as a result of ignorance and fear. I have observed that people with
unfounded and irrational fears about their fellow man in this time have the luxury of not having their beliefs tested.

On my world line, if a man doesn’t pull his weight in the community, then we feel prejudice towards him as a burden to us. This feeling of shame he
experiences then makes him realize his responsibilities.
06 December 2000 21:36 (about the future) 113
(What is the health care system like)
You would probably not like it at all. I would compare it to what you see in Western movies. We do have hospitals but there are more family doctors
and house calls as compared to what you are used to. There is no real organized health care. If you get a serious disease, you die. This however has
had a tendency to strengthen the general genetic pool. Doctors are more concerned about things like broken legs, snake bites and delivering healthy
06 December 2000 21:36 (about the future) 114
(What is the entertainment industry like, movies, tv, radio, internet?)
Again, entertainment is less centralized. There are “movies” and “tv” but everything is distributed over the net and more people produce their own

(How difficult is it for someone to start from nothing and get a job and make a living for themselves?)
Very easy. If you can work with your hands and get along with other people, you will always find work.
