In the year 2033 I was a test pilot for a corporation called TGD, which manufactures AI-assisted direct-brain interfaces for what basically amount to
"telepathic" navigation systems for very fast sub-light spacecraft. I was "killed" during a ladder test of a new prototype, out near the rings of
Saturn. I suspect that there may have been some industrial sabotage involved.
Because of the nature of the test, and the technology involved, I was able to amplify the carrier wave of my AI-assisted and networked mind-share so
that I did not die, mentally, but rather escaped backwards "through time," into a dream I had as a 10 year old child in the summer of 1979. I
"possessed" the younger version of myself, and altered the course of my life in such a way that I never flew for the Navy, and never became a test
At first -- I assumed I had made a clean jump backwards in my own timeline. I now believe that this particular reality sprung into being on that day,
when my life-path diverged from the original in the "future."
I attempted to write as much of what I "knew" and "understood" down during the summer following the divergence. What remains is a collection of
"drawings / diagrams" and "stories" (as mom called them) which I understand less well, the longer I am alive in this particular version of my
Finally -- I believe that as I approach the original "age" of my departure, I might be able to jump back in to a moment shortly before the incident
and prevent it. I do not know what will happen to your universe when I go. I suspect it will simply cease to exist the moment I depart....
