When you say “teleportation”, I assume you mean public transportation. Yes, we have a basic high-speed system. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 334 20. I don’t know if the government created AIDS. I tend to think yes but controlling it escaped them as it mutated. You can’t have conspiracy to limit the population with a disease without the cure. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 335 21. Yes, homosexuals are in the army. You tend to look past the individual differences of people when thier job is to protect your life. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 336 22. Yes, there are “gay” people in 2036. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 337 24. Yes, there is an entertainment industry. Again, it is very decentralized. The technology to express yourself with video is so readily available that many people do it all by themselves or in small groups. Much of the distribution is over the web. I would compare it theater here. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 338 26. The average lifespan is about 60 but I expect that will imporve as we get things cleaned up. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 339 27. Yes, paper money is still widely used. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 340 28. The 21st century has awhile to go but the most significant person in my opinion is the farmer-general who led us to victory. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 341 29. Even for you Tesla technology can be found in appliances, motors and generators. I would have to say we have come a long way on Tesla’s foundation but we don’t have electricity rays that cause earthquakes. 02/09/01 14:02 (about time travel) 342 30. Getting back to my exact worldline of origin is impossible but it depends on how you define the correct worldline. I can get close enough so neither I nor anyone there would know the difference. It relates to the classic example of cutting a distance in half to reach it. You can always get closer but never there. It also has a lot do with neighboring universes on Penrose diagrams but that requires more math. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 343 31. Yes, we have the death penalty. We also have public punishment. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 344 32. The most common crime is theft. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 345 34. Cloning is not common. However, altering the sperm and egg cell are common. It is very difficult to have children in 2036 for environmental reasons. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 346 35. It’s hard to say what the exact racial make up of the U.S. is. I would say it’s probably the same minus 130 million people or so. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 347 36. No, there is no segregation. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 348 37. The education system is very similar to yours but the organization and implementation is controlled on a community and county level. Various communities also specialize in certain disciplines. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 349 38, 39. My comments on equal rights and “women’s roles” could be quite lengthy and controversial. I wish to discuss that separately. However, women do fight in the military just as the men do but their role on the community level is very conservative. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 350 40. Having children is such a serious issue in 2036 that birth control is almost unheard of. It is very difficult and precious to have and raise children. Again, this is an issue I will be happy to go into later. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 351 41. Yes, there are same sex marriages but it’s not very common. Again, people have lived through so much hardship that if what someone else is doing does not affect them or harm the community, it’s not a big issue. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 352 42. South America went relatively unharmed. However, there is still a great deal of internal conflict with conventional arms. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 353 43. Yes, people use drugs that alter consciousness but they are not very common. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 354 45. There is another Pope but I do not know his name. 02/09/01 14:02 (about the future) 355 I do believe that “you’re” UNIX will also have a problem in 2038. I don’t think that’s a secret but maybe someone should put a 5100 aside for thirty years or so. 02/10/01 09:49 (about time travel) 356 I believe the 5100 is unique in its ability to run assembler language on the 360-machine platform and still be portable. I’m not sure if that fact was ever made public so it’s the best “proof” I have. I would like to examine the software you mentioned; perhaps I can further justify my side-trip. 02/10/01 09:49 (about time travel) 357 ((As a programmer, the UNIX issue you refer to is a bit of a problem. I write code in APL, PLI, Lisp, C, C++, VB, Fortran , Cobol, smalltalk, Java, Python, and a slew of less known languages. The 2038 "bug" is about as dangerous as the Y2K bug. I can "with a little tweaking" do anything with a computer that can be done with a computer. I assume there are programmers in 2036, that being the case, a "good programmer" can fix your Y2K38 date inconsistency. As for the undocumented IBM design modification in the 5100, I know nothing so I can't comment there. The new .net platform from microsoft has the capability to integrate all the languages you mentioned + all the ones I mentioned. Would it not be easier to write in the original language instead of having a machine translation?)) I will examine the web site you mentioned. I believe the 5100 is unique in its ability to run assembler language on the 360-machine platform and still be portable. I’m not sure if that fact was ever made public so it’s the best “proof” I have. I would like to examine the software you mentioned; perhaps I can further justify my side-trip. 02/10/01 09:49 (about the future) 358 Yes, EMP took out a great number of electronic devices. That’s one of the reasons why we don’t have reliable technology laying around. However, in the opening hours of N Day, the Russians did not launch any high altitude detonations. They knew we would most likely clean up after them so they wanted everyone outside the cities to be able to communicate. Most of the warheads that hit the cities came in threes and exploded close to the ground. The heavy EMP damage was isolated to those areas. 02/10/01 09:49 (about the future) 359 Actually, you will probably be quite impressed with our internet. It’s based on a series of independent, self-powered nodes that are mobile and can be put up anywhere. It looks a great deal like your current cell phone system. 02/11/01 18:43 (right now) 360 As I'm sure Pamela can tell you, my email system is made up of quite a few addresses, locations and computers. Some of them work better than others and for a period of time, I have been unable (in my own way) to get to this site. It appears I?ve come back at just the right moment. 02/12/01 20:54 (about the future) 361 Yes, there are a great many people who think that Revelations has come to pass. However, the new fear is that Christ has returned, he’s not telling us and he’s very angry. 02/12/01 20:54 (about the future) 362 We do enjoy “talk programs” but they are distributed over the web. I don’t have additional information about UFOs and I find the subject quite interesting myself. I have often wondered if they aren’t time travelers with very sophisticated machines. Based on what I know about the nature of time I find this difficult to believe but nothing is impossible. 02/12/01 20:54 (about the future) 363 Yes, handmade items and the skills to make them are quite prevalent and people take a great deal of pride in their work. People with the skills to make clothing, work with leather and wood or cultivate a garden have become quite valuable. 02/12/01 20:54 (about the future) 364 Fiji? I’ve noticed that when most Americans think about Canada in this time, they think about pine trees, chooks and back-bacon. It may interest you to know that most Canadians in 2036 are some of the most efficient, ruthless and dangerous people I know. God help Quebec. 02/12/01 20:5 (right now) 365 In my experience, evil may be powerful, but they aren’t very bright. 02/12/01 20:54 (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 366 Current fallout estimates are accurate but a bit exaggerated. 02/12/01 20:54 (about time travel) 367 Once a micro-singularity is produced and placed in statis in a magnetic field, what is the approximate strength of that magnetic field. How is the magnetic field produced (I mean - what power source holds the field in place)? What would happen to the microsignularity if that source FAILED? For instance would the microsingularity begin to grow? Or would it cease to exist?)) These are excellent questions that I probably won’t answer to your satisfaction but let me make a couple of points first. Although I am familiar with the general manufacture of the unit, I am not a physicist or a scientist. My background is in history and I had the correct profile to accomplish my given task in 1975. I doubt that most jet fighter pilots are aeronautical engineers and I’ll bet most of you couldn’t give me the formula for horsepower, yet you drive a car every day. 02/12/01 20:54 (about time travel) 368 The distortion unit is not magic and no alien technology was required to make it work. If you could see it, the “smarts” that went into designing it will amaze you more than the technology. Heck, the really interesting technology is in the computer. 02/12/01 20:54 (about time travel) 369 The magnetic field does not require the fantastic energies you might imagine. The field is “created” and captures the singularity inside a very large and powerful specially designed particle accelerator. If the magnetic system failed (which has numerous backups including a system that would remove it from this worldline), the singularity would evaporate. Although it is smaller than an electron, it would still be quite undesirable. 02/12/01 20:54 (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 370 ((why do you keep telling us about the ww3..etc.. how do you know that will even -happen- in our worldline? it may have already been nipped in the bud for all you know..because ours is a different -worldline- from yours!)) Yes, you are correct! However, I am not confident things are different enough for you to avoid the conflict. You may also consider the possibility that a world with no war is far less desirable in the long run. In response to your other point, your assumptions about causality are correct but my personal morality still comes into play. I won’t deviate from my three rules because of the way I would feel about myself. 02/12/01 20:54 (about time travel) 371 The singularities do not create Tipler cylinders they create the same physical environment without all the mass. The same math works for both. There are two singularities. Their mass and spin is altered in order to adjust the size of the ergosphere and cause the event horizons to interact and create the gravity sinusoid. I have a basic home schooling education (k-12) and a bachelor’s degree in history. 02/12/01 23:51 (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 372 I don’t believe I ever said the war was between Democrats and Republicans. If I am incorrect, please point that out. It doesn’t exactly escalate as much as it opens the door for other aggression. Yes, I think the war would be good for society and I would be happy to debate that with you. 02/12/01 23:51 (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 373 ((5. John tells us to: buy a gun, find 5 friends, get a bicycle, yada, yada, yada. ( this conflicts with his above comments: here he seems to want to save some people, while above he wants to kill us all off)) If you could point out how this violates the three guidelines I stated earlier I will give it considerable thought. Perhaps you are correct and that was a mistake. Again, I don’t believe I said I want to kill you. Personally, I think murder is wrong. You seem to be pretty good at that yourself. 02/12/01 23:51 (about the future) 374 ((7. John mentions the Big War(2015) was between the Cities of America (the enemy of John) and Russia, China, etc.(so not only do we have a civil war but now we have a war between the city folk and rural folk in the US, AND a world war)) Hmmm…are you familiar with the Russian partisan movement in WWII? 02/12/01 23:51 (about the future) 375 ((8. John says the civil war which starts in 2004 or 2005 (depending on the post) leads to the world war which starts in 2015. ( So we have a TEN YEAR civil war???)) It’s 2004. I apologize for a missed key (very observant – we all need good critics). Perhaps our definition of war is different. I would define it as a conflict where organized groups engage in maneuver and armed conflict. The first U.S. civil war lasted 4 years and the English civil war lasted 6. How long is too long? 02/12/01 23:51 (about the future) 376 Actually, what I said was, “…you may be surprised at how many people use typewriters.” I don’t understand the conflict. What’s wrong with typewriters? At least you don’t have to plug them in. 02/13/01 10:51 (about time travel) 377 ((1)Have you ever went on any other time traveling missions? If so, what were they?)) Yes, but they were all training missions. There is a great deal of psychological profiling and testing and one of the training missions involved choosing a time in your life (within two years) where you wish you would have done something different and then going back to convince yourself to do it. The idea is to become familiar with the possibility of meeting yourself which can be rather difficult. It is quite odd to look at “yourself” and have a conversation. Since any “you” on another worldline would not be a mirror image, you get a slightly distorted feeling while seeing yourself, let alone the concept of speaking to yourself 02/13/01 10:51 (right now) 378 (4)I looked up the name 'Titor' in the state of Flordia on 555-1212.com and couldn't find ANY Titors, is your family not listed in the phone book? I guess it depends when you look. 02/13/01 10:51 (predictions for the future) 379 (6)What is the specific Date that the Nuclear war starts? If you can't remember the exact date, could you put the month at least? An estimate! I remember the exact date. When it comes, it will not be a surprise. 02/13/01 10:51 (about the future) 380 (7)What is the speed of the average computer in the future? I am assuming it is in ghZ, if it is higher, could you post the name of that hZ measurement and its relation to the ghZ? Ghz is not a useful measurement. Computers are no longer measured by their speed as mush as the number of variables (not calculations) they can handle per second. 02/13/01 10:51 (about time travel) 381 (8)Can you do your own Time Traveling ventures whenever you want? If so, how much does it cost? Or can you make 'pit stops' along the way back to 2036? No, the unit doesn’t belong to me. I can’t make stops on the way home as it will throw the gravity measurements off and It would force me to backtrack along the backtrack. Also, I can’t just leave and arrive at any place and time I want to. There are physical and technical limits to when and where I can go. 02/13/01 10:51 (about time travel) 382 (9)Have you ever went past your future, like to 2050 or somewhere around there? If so, what is the world like then? No, I haven’t been to the future of my 2036. My profile qualified me for a trip to the past. 02/13/01 10:51 (about the future) 383 The animal Kingdom is alive and well. I’m sure it suffered but there fewer people infringing on animal's habitats now. 02/13/01 10:51 (about the future) 384 Nuclear war is a very undesirable thing but it is not the end of the world. There are areas and cities we can’t enter and the environment did suffer a great deal of damage but we are recovering. Isn’t Hirroshima a thriving city today? The major physical affects include skin cancer, infertility, infection, etc. Almost everyone has some sort of physical remnant from the war.
