((If this is the case, why won't you tell us things that will give us knowledge or let us avoid death?))
I am not qualified to judge if you deserve it or not and I have no idea if you may be the next (for lack of a better reference) Hitler. However, if I
were able to physically help you from a situation because I was there and I knew it was coming, I would help you.
02/21/2001 08:45 am (about time travel) 476
((My only geuss is that you are not a time traveller, and don't want to say anything that could make a gullable person do something stupid. ))
Yes, I am aware that is the obvious first answer but I would hope my moral and logical arguments at least make a dent in your thinking. If you were a
time traveler, would you be comfortable giving out all that information after considering the possible consequences? (Provided you knew it). If I were
you, I would be worried about what the next time traveler might do….even by mistake.
02/21/2001 08:45 am (about time travel) 477
((3) how can I leave a message for myself in the future if the things I do in this worldline do not effect the others?))
Just post it here. All this information will probably end up on the web in 2036. If you’re alive then and you think ahead for some reason to do a
search on yourself, you might see it. Of course the “you” there would have no memory of doing it.

((your prediction of its pending disintegration, beginning in three short years, is utterly improbable, if not impossible.))
Have you see the documentary on Waco? You can drive to a video store and rent it. It’s called “Waco – Rules of Engagement.” Just for argument’s sake,
what do you think would happen if information were discovered that confirmed the worst accusations made against the law enforcement officers there?
Would you hope….nothing?
((P.S. The idea of a farmer general leaving his fields to lead his country's troops to victory is an old one going back, at least, to Roman times.
Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus, I believe, was the gentleman's name, from the 5th Century B.C. Roman Republic.))
02/21/2001 08:45 am (about the future) 479
Yes, I often think about that when I see pictures of "my" farmer general in Omaha. It’s a large bronze depiction holding a shotgun in one hand a
copy of the Constitution in the other. He is looking up at the sky in defiance of God after his father was killed. (At least his name isn’t Sparticus

((How far from what size city is it the safest to be?))
A 10 Kiloton nuclear weapon will vaporize metal for about a mile and have a heat effect for about 3 miles. A 100 Megaton nuclear weapon will
vaporize metal to 35 miles and have a heat effect to about 250 miles. I believe the largest nuclear weapon ever built and tested was about 60
megatons. As I recall, the popular strategy toady is to strike targets with multiple numbers of smaller warheads. The 100 Kt to 1 Mt are the most
popular. I believe there are about 150 - 200 major cities in the US and half as many military targets. Please correct me someone if I am grossly
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 481
((You suggest bicycle. What about horseback?))
Yes, horses are good if you can feed and water them. Also, it’s very hard to eat a bicycle.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 482
((Should we be stockpiling guns?))
The answer to this is NO! You will draw a great deal of negative attention to yourself. I recommend become familiar with firearms. This means taking a
safety course and learning to shoot and clean many different types. There will be plenty of guns around when you need them.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 483
((What kind of people will be the ones least trustworthy?))
The people with the most to lose if the world changes -Camel through the eye of a needle?
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (about the future) 484
((Is the conflict racial in any way?))
Not at all. In fact, I would say it goes a long way toward erasing racial problems.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (about the future) 485
((Does the civil war start in such a way that with this foreknowledge those willing will have time to remove themselves to safer locations.))
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (about the future) 486
((Will you readily be able to identify the enemy.))
They will be the ones arresting and holding prople without due process.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 487
((Does living near a river with a distillation unit take care of water problems?))
There is an odd saying that might be appropriate here. Safe is anywhere a hungry person can’t walk in three days. Water is important but you must
consider that when people need it they will know where to get it. I would not plan on planting myself permanently next to a water source. Yes,
distillation dose make water safe but the runoff is highly dangerous. Please remember that distillation is not boiling.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (safety, suggestions, assorted philosophy) 488
((How are the five people within the 100 miles contacted?))
The goal is to have a place to go other than your house and to be able to trust someone with your life. Foster those relationships now.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (about the future) 489
((Do communications stay intact.))
Main communication systems no, CB, sideband and non-repeating short-wave, yes.

((I have 86 acres on a river in Central California about 125 miles north of LA. I have geese, turkeys, horses, chickens, milk cows, good pasture, a
well run by electricity, and a garden. I also have two teenage sons who are gun nuts. Plenty of rifles, semi-automatic and otherwise.))
Be mobile. Set aside the things you absolutely would need and can carry on your back. You will not be able to stay anywhere indefinitely even with
provisions and firearms.
02/21/2001 04:35 pm (about the future) 491
(( Will he be asked to kill his countrymen?))
I’m not positive but don’t they sign a small piece of paper now asking them if they would have a problem with that?
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about time travel) 492
((In this experiment the traveller only goes 30 seconds into the past to appear in his lab. It seems that 30 seconds before his experiment was to
begin he saw himself appear in the lab. There would now be two travelers and two time machines. It doesn't appear that it ends that simply as the
"second" time traveler says that he saw a duplicate self appear in the lab thirty seconds before he started the trip. It would appear that its a
time loop and an infinite number of duplicates see a duplicate self appear in the lab thirty seconds prior to the start of the trip. ))
Yes, that’s possible.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about time travel) 493
((Your time machine weighs 500 lbs and an average man weighs about 180 lbs. So lets say that that the mass is about 700 lbs per traveler. What is the
mass of the duplicates and where did the mass come from?))
The other mass comes from other worldlines. I like to think of it as standing in a room with mirrors on the walls and the apparent “me” in the room
next to mine steps into the room from his.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about time travel) 494
((What is the result of the duplicates arriving ~simultaneously at the ~same place and time?))
Psychological confusion and a few fist fights.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about time travel) 495
((How long will it take for the loop to decay? Will it decay? Is it a loop?))
The chances of hitting the precise worldline where all the other duplicates are arriving is almost zero. It's possible but increasingly less probable
with each arriving duplicate. The divergence decays and the worldline is “less available” for new “yous” to arrive on.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about time travel) 496
((What happens if the experimenter, upon seeing his duplicate, decides not to continue the experiment?))
He can always leave the room on his own worldline or put a desk full of books in the position where the time machine is arriving every 30 seconds.
That will probably trip the VGL system and stop the time machines from arriving.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about the future) 497
((Do you remember any poetry or verse from after 2001 in your past?))
A Soldier’s Winter
The day before it wasn’t snowing. The trees are strangers, leering, disapproving in the ash of winter
..my world, my life, my wandering path. I pray God’s eyes may once again gaze upon me and remind me that I am still His child.
I only (think) I remember the first line but the last one I remember. It has quite a few more lines that I don’t remember. It is rumored this was
written first as a letter by a soldier. After he died it was added to and edited by others. In my opinion, it has become a symbol for the collective
guilt my parents’ generation feels for what became of the world.
02/21/2001 08:48 pm (about the future) 498
((Is there an active market on new books in your time, or has that infranstructure not rebuilt it self? Are most the books available old or new? ))
Yes but there are no large commercial printing and distribution companies. Books and other forms of hard media are distributed on the web and printed
or put on other media from local hubs. Napster + mailboxes etc.

((So - to John... this is a kind of an answer to something you said earlier on. No, military people are not asked to sign anything saying they will
kill anyone. It is either an urban legend that has been perpetuated in the past few years, or it really happened with one Marine platoon in 29 palms.
I've had two men tell me they participated, and both say it happened, but it was NOT a military-wide thing.))
I agree the details are very important. My statement ended with a question mark. I made no difinitve statement.

((2: What happens to Bill Gates between now and 2036?))
This I do know but I won’t discuss.
