Dunne's theory, elaborated from years of experiments into precognitive dreams and induced precognitive states, is that in reality all time is eternally present, that is, that past, present and future are all happening together in some way. Human consciousness, however, experiences this simultaneity in linear form. Dunne posits that in the dreaming state this way of interpreting time ceases to be as concrete as when we are awake. Thus we are capable of having what we call precognitive dreams as consciousness finds itself free to roam across past, present and future.

The city is in Italy; me and my father were coming back home from that town and we were lost in the dark suddenly for a hour...
I will get back there on February 3rd for the first time since 2008...

This is such a great thread! Such a nice change!
Time travel and time slips have always interested me. The big questions, other than how to do it, revolve around paradoxes.
Like the example of going back in time and meeting yourself. How can you be in two places at once? I guess you could say that isn't you now, it's you then. But does that mean there are an infinite number of you's to represent each moment of your existence?
Or are you inherently making a copy of yourself every time you time travel to the past, since in that past you already exist?
If you jump to the future in your own "lifetime", you would also be a copy?
I don't know if you could ever return to your own time because you could never catch that exact moment.
Or do you replace yourself?

You mean this well known ATS thread: Time Traveller Caught on 1928 Charlie Chaplin Film?
One of ATS's biggest threads now I believe and It soon become something of a 'web hit.'
I'm not sure of the exact outcome as well but I believe it was officially debunked, although I could be wrong..
EDIT TO ADD: This is what I believe it was, although Again, I'm not sure if It has been confirmed to be anything else right now.edit on 23-1-2011 by Rising Against because: (no reason given)
Wow! You could be onto something with that ear trumpet you posted in that link. I've never heard of such a thing until now, but it could've possible been the thing he had to his ear...I guess we will never know,edit on 23-1-2011 by jganer because: (no reason given)

You already posted something that I wondered about.
I would have expected the inn keeper to have looked at the notes and asked "what should I do with these" and would have started some immediate questions for both of them.

I've been thinking on the Hotel disappearing story/past hotel. Maybe they didn't really look at the bills too closely because at that time nobody ever thought of counterfeiting/ or were too aware of counterfeiting like today. I'll tell you some things I have seen as a cashier, I have gotten $2 bills and they hadn't been in circulation for a loooooooooonnnng time and not seen by me until very recently when I worked at Wal-mart down here. I have seen bills that predate the new ones and I have seen some bills, in fact refused bills I didn't even recognize, except I seen them now in circulation. I was a cashier for a long time and I never refused the old bills I recognized or the two dollar bills. Maybe I have run into a few unwitting time- travellers myself? So, maybe they either didn't take too close of a look or just shugged it off.
The bill was discontinued in 1966, but was reintroduced 10 years later as part of the United States Bicentennial celebrations. Today, however it is rarely seen in circulation as production of the note is the lowest of U.S. paper money: under 1% of all notes currently produced are $2 bills. This comparative scarcity in circulation, coupled with a lack of public awareness that the bill is still in circulation, has also inspired urban legends and, on a few occasions, created problems for people trying to use the bill to make purchases.
I might add that I saw it fairly often that year I worked there. Also, even when I was not working there anymore, there were certain people who had loads of them.
I do realize it says they are still in circulation but it says less than 1% of our currency is the $2 bill, so chances of seeing it very often is low on the scale!

Not sure if this adds anything but (regarding time and reincarnation) I once read that since our time is non linear when we reincarnate we can be put in to any time, so for example if someone died this year they could possibly live their next life as a caveman or future human in 3011.
This is not coming from me and I'm not sure if I believe it, but regarding time and time travel this is something to think about.
