We Are All Time Travellers

All you need is a valid central point, and some Einsteinian math to power your machine. There may be a need to generate all the energy needed with a generator the size of the sun with the corresponding output as well.

Or you can move forward one second at a time like most of us already do.

I realize I've started a sentence with a conjunction, and I don't normally recommend that grammatically. However, on an occasional basis, you must break the rules. Like for instance, when time traveling.

I've realized that time travel as a story device is limited in scope, as it truly only solves the problems that it doesn't create by its mere existence.  There's a whole fandom out there that would take you on and battle to the last man if you were to make this argument.  For those unfamiliar with the Grandfather paradox; Is it possible to travel back in time to kill your grandparents, nullifying your birth, at which point, you weren't able to travel back in time to kill them? Philosophy and Physics have the answers to these questions. See also; The Butterfly Effect.  Well, don't see the movie version, as it's not that good.

It's only fun to think about these things if you realize that you can't do it yourself, and you may not even be able to pay a lot of money to make it possible.  So we're stuck for now with varying levels of representation of the phenomenon in the media, most of which is shockingly bad simply because the authors had a squishy vision of what their time travel could accomplish.

I post this here, as this is The Watchmaker site, and as we all know, most if not all of us are continually striving to answer the question.

That's my story™ Hope you enjoyed it. Soon to be a major motion picture....

This Is A Job For...

Oh, wait. He's not available. Who can we get?

I know I haven't posted here in awhile, and most of you know why.  If you don't, keep reading. Even if you do, you should keep reading. Yes, as a writer, I need readers.

Super Blood Moon

It's my understanding that not only are we going to have a super moon (one that wears a cape), it will be a blood moon as well.  This is an astrological event that certain someones have attached a meaning to.

Grammatically, that should read, "to which some have attached meaning." Apparently someone a long time ago decided that English language rules are fluid, and I haven't read a Strunk & White lately.

Without Cape
In any case, we have this phenomenon that only takes place now 4 or 5 times in a lifetime occurring this evening, and you don't want to miss it. I may very well, simply because once again I've triple booked myself, and as you know, I'm not Jay Garrick.

I have indeed decided that recording the event for my good friend posterity is a good idea.  My current problem is that I have too many devices with which to do it, and I haven't read the "friendly" manual for any of them.

Adjust your expectations accordingly.

My Good Friend Troi Ge

Came in at the last minute, and did great work on short notice. This was last year. See for yourself.

For first time readers, this is from my 168 Project film, Black Friday, which premiered at the 168 Film Festival last year.  I'm pretty sure I could come up with another 3 to 4 hundred words about what a professional he is, however, outside forces are taxing the computer....

Leave a comment or a question.
