The John Titor Project Pt 2

Archiving the history of comments and statements made by "time traveler", John Titor.

By Dr Fred Bell

Pamela: 12.
Do your people know where you are right now? Can you communicate with them? do you have a biological implant?

Timetravel_0: No.
They do not know where I am and I can not communicate with them. Interesting idea though. From their point of view, I will return almost exactly at the same moment I left. From their viewpoint, I will only have aged more than expected.

After the flash of light is gone are you then in another time? what does it look like as the new time unfolds? Is it just there? or does it slowly come into view? does it fade in and out for a time?

While the machine is on. Everything is black. When the machine is turned off, it is the reverse affect. It appears you are driving out from a bridge. To tell you the truth, I'm usually sleeping when the unit turns off but yes it does appear that the world fades in from black.

What happens if the device messes up? Do you end up in space? if it goes offline and shifts ? does a hole open elsewhere?

Timetravel_0: Good question!!!
That one almost never comes up. The hard part of traveling through time is not the bending of gravity but the plotting of your course and holding to the basic position in your environment.

This is done through a system called VGL "Variable Gravity Lock". Basically, the unit takes a reading of the local gravity and samples it during the trip in pulses.

If the gravity is too far off, the unit stops or reverses itself to the last sample period where the readings were correct. If there is some sort of failure, the unit shuts down and drops out to where ever you may be.

What affects are caused on the immediate area where the gravity has been distorted after you leave it and when you arrive? are there permanent effects left on the land such as electromagnetic disturbances in that area?

Another good question!!! The only real physical trace is a large chunk of ground missing from the point of origin and a large pile of dirt at the destination. The gravity field surrounds a small portion of the earth under you and takes it along for the ride. There is really no way around this.

The hard part of traveling to other world lines is just that. There is a system of clocks and gravity sensors that sample the environment before dropping out. Its called VGL, variable gravity lock.

If a cement block were there, the machine would backtrack until it sensed relative congruity to the original gravity sample. A great deal of time and effort goes into picking just the right spot since you can not physically move during a displacement.

Can you explain to me in detail the basic physics and mathematics behind how the machine operates? and exactly how it distorts gravity.

Timetravel_0: 1
Time travel is achieved by altering gravity. This concept is already proven by atomic clock experiments. The closer an observer is to a gravity source high mass, the slower time passes for them.

Traveling at high speeds mimics this effect which the twin paradox of faster than light travel. However, this type of gravity manipulation is not sufficient to alter your world line. The basic math to alter world lines exists right now.

Tipler first described a working time machine through his theory of massive rotating spheres. Certain types of black holes also exhibit the "time travel" abilities of Tipler cylinders.

Kerr was one of the first to describe the dual event horizons of a rotating black hole. As with Tipler's cylinders, it was possible to travel on a timelike trip through a Kerr black hole and end up in a different world line without being squished by the gravity of the singularity.

The mass and gravitational field of a microsingularity can then be manipulated by injecting electrons onto its surface. By rotating two electric microsigularities at high speed, it is possible to create and modify a local gravity sinusoid that replicates the affects of a Kerr black hole.

For those asking how come a microsingularity doesn't swallow the Earth or want to know details about the size, stability, mass, temperature and resulting Hawking radiation from such a thing.. those details I must keep to myself.

Can you travel to the future as well as the past? my understanding of the machine is the trip is recorded so you can get back to your original time line but what about a future beyond your time line are you able to access it as well? or does it have to be open by a future chrononaunt?

Yes, you can travel into the future and it takes less energy than going into the past.
