  1. Education time for fellow TTI members to understand things beyond the knowledge of the skeptic debunkers who mock frequently here. Let's spend 45 mins to understand the 11th dimension, M-theory, Parallel universes, alternative timelines and multiverse. This documentary was aired in the early 2000s, so sorry about the old footage of CRT monitors. The newer LCD/LED screens and Flexible OLED displays of the 2010s were not available yet at that time. But this 'older knowledge' video could give you basic ideas of where the world of Physics is up to 10 years ago outside this message board. Feel free to write your ideas and understanding of parallel universes and alternate timelines in this thread, and no one shall discourage each other who have limited knowledge. No one is expert. Let's be gracous to each other. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ds47ozzSrU
  2. Christian Theologian and writer J.C. Ryle on 5 Dangers for Young Men: 1. Pride 2. Love for Pleasure 3. Thoughtlessness 4. Contempt of Religion 5. Fear of Man's Opinion Read the explanation on each subject in the following link. 5 Dangers For Young Men | The J.C. Ryle Archive
  3. May be she is no longer in that position or US is no longer involved in the project after the timeline is changed?
  4. Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics of Columbia University agrees with you, Paul MC. There are many people out there with bright and open minds in the world. Do not be troubled by the narrow minded in an Internet forum. Watch this video. It fully support and explains your argument in Many Worlds Interpretation. I believe that the scientists in this video are much more qualified and highly educated than anyone here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Qt-eGKa34M
  5. To "Halo" Game fans: Microsoft is bringing Cortana to your Windows 8.1 PC and Windows powered phone in real life. Chief! John-117, do you copy? Hope she don't go rampant after 8 years. "I won't leave you, I promise. I will always take care of you." "It worked. You did it! Just like you always do." "We were supposed to take care of each other. And we did." "Welcome home, John." - Cortana Any 3D programmers out there want to make a 3D face for her on screen or hologram presentation? Looks like Apple's Siri has a rival. The Battle of A.I. will begin. Enough of geek talks.

  8. The ships and planes in this list are either still missing, or found empty without anybody on board. Why do people leave the ship with all the food and water untouched? What is the higher percentage of surviving? With food and water on a larger ship, or a raft/lifeboat with little supplies? Beside that, the lifeboats are still onboard in some of the big ships. Just people are missing. This is the mystery.
  9. That is a mystery, which interested me to put it in this paranormal forum. Why do the sailers abandon the ship? Where did they go? And this is not once, but in many occasions.
  10. Yes, just kidding involving mobilisation of 10000 troops doing nuclear strike drills and exercises... Ukraine crisis: Russia carries out massive nuclear war exercise involving 10,000 troops - Europe - World - The Independent
  11. The location of destination on the map are drawn pointing to the true north with geometric measure. The difference between true and magnetic north can be as much as 20 degrees. This difference if not accounted for can really mess up a pilot or sailor's navigation getting them very lost somewhere on the sea. Moreover, magnetic compasses always point towards magnetic north unless there is a local magnetic field that is causing the compass to turn away from magnetic north. Such local magnetic fields can be caused by iron, nickel, or cobalt deposits in nearby islands. San Clemente Island off the coast of San Diego has large metal ore deposits, as well as magnetite crystal and lodestone deposits could cause magnetic compasses to be inaccurate in its vicinity.
  12. Nothing "technical" about that statement concerning civil war. Hey Darby, An interesting news article came up today (2014-04-01). Source: Ukraine crisis: Russia carries out massive nuclear war exercise involving 10,000 troops - Europe - World - The Independent
  13. Although the magnetic north pole is not fixed, it does not move too much and there is always an angle with slight variations between the True North and Magnetic North. Bermuda Triangle is an area, but not a single dot. No matter how much the magnetic north moved, the variation of the intersection point of the 2 longitude lines are still within the Bermuda Triangle area.
  14. Just interested on the date of release written in the YouTube clip. Nothing much.
  15. There is True North and Magnetic North. If we draw a circle around the globe from North Pole to South Pole and back to North Pole again, and then draw another circle around the globe from Magnetic North to Magnetic South and back to Magnetic North, you will have 2 intersection points between the 2 circles of True North-South longitude line and Magnetic North-South longitude line. Bermuda Triangle and the Devil's Sea near Japan are located at that 2 intersections.[ATTACH]440[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]440[/ATTACH]
  16. This thread is only for archive purposes. From 1971-2001, can you count what is the average missing incidents per year according to the list above? And what is the average number of incidents in other areas per year in general?

This was the sixth Scorpion. It was laid down on August 20th,1958, at Groton, Connecticut at the General Dynamics Corp. Electric Boat Division. The Scorpion launched on the 19th of December, 1959. The ship was sponsored by Mrs. Elizabeth S. Morrison and was commissioned on July 29th, 1960 under Commander Norman B. Bessac.The Scorpion displaced 3,075 tons on the surface and 3,500 tons when submerged. The ships beam was 31' 7" and it's length was 251' 9". The armament consisted of 6 torpedo tubes with a payload of ?? torpedoesAssigned to Submarine Squadron 6, Division 62, Scorpion departed New London, Conn., on 24 August for a two-month deployment in European waters. During that period, she participated in exercises with units of the 6th Fleet and of other NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization] navies. After returning to New England in late October, she trained along the eastern seaboard until May 1961, then crossed the Atlantic again for operations which took her into the summer. On 9 August, she returned to New London and, a month later, shifted to Norfolk, Va. With Norfolk her home port for the remainder of her career, Scorpion specialized in the development of nuclear submarine warfare tactics. Varying her role from hunter to hunted, she participated in exercises which ranged along the Atlantic coast and in the Bermuda and Puerto Rican operating areas; then, from June 1963 to May 1964, she interrupted her operations for an overhaul at Charleston, S.C. Resuming duty off the eastern seaboard in late spring, she again interrupted that duty from 4 August to 8 October to make a transatlantic patrol. In the spring of 1965, she conducted a similar patrol in European waters.During the late winter and early spring of 1966, and again in the fall, she was deployed for special operations. Following the completion of those assignments, her commanding officer received the Navy Commendation Medal for outstanding leadership, foresight, and professional skill. Other Scorpion officers and men were cited for meritorious achievement.On 1 February 1967, Scorpion entered the Norfolk Naval Shipyard for another extended overhaul. In late October, she commenced refresher training and weapons system acceptance tests. Following type training out of Norfolk, she got underway on 15 February 1968 for a Mediterranean deployment. She operated with the 6th Fleet, into May, and then headed west for home. On 21 May, she indicated her position to be about 50 miles south of the Azores. Six days later, she was reported overdue at Norfolk. A search was initiated, but, on 5 June, Scorpion and her crew were declared "presumed lost." Her name was struck from the Navy list on 30 June.The search continued, however; and, at the end of October, the Navy's oceanographic research ship, Mizar (T-AGOR-11) located sections of Scorpion's hull in more than 10,000 feet of water about 400 miles southwest of the Azores. Subsequently, the Court of Inquiry was reconvened and other vessels, including the submersible Trieste were dispatched to the scene and collected a myriad of pictures and other data.Although the cause of her loss is still not ascertainable, the most probable event was the inadvertent activation of the battery of a Mark 37 torpedo during a torpedo inspection. The torpedo, in a fully ready condition and without a propeller guard, then began a live "hot run" within the tube. Released from the tube, the torpedo became fully armed and successfully engaged its nearest target, Scorpion. Alternatively, the torpedo may have exploded in the tube owing to an uncontrollable fire in the torpedo room.The explosion--recorded elsewhere as a very loud acoustic event--broke the boat into two major pieces, with the forward hull section, including the torpedo room and most of the operations compartment, creating one impact trench while the aft section, including the reactor compartment and engine room, created a second impact trench. The sail is detached and lies nearby in a large debris field.Owing to the pressurized-water nuclear reactor in the engine room, deep ocean radiological monitoring operations were conducted in August and September 1986. The site had been previously monitored in 1968 and 1979 and none of the samples obtained showed any evidence of release of radioactivity. 1969, MARCH 23 BEECHCRAFT AIRPLANE - Lost with Dr. James Horton and Dr. Charles Griggs.

Took off from Cecil Field, Florida. 1945, July 18 NAVY PRIVATEER AIRPLANE - PB-4YW, 4 engine. Lost between Miami, Florida and the Bahamas 1945, December 5 FLIGHT 19 - Five Grumman TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers. - At about 2:10 p.m. on the afternoon of 5 December 1945, Flight 19, consisting of five TBM Avenger Torpedo Bombers departed from the U. S. Naval Air Station, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on an authorized advanced overwater navigational training flight. They were to execute navigation problem No. 1, which is as follows: (1) depart 26 degrees 03 minutes north and 80 degrees 07 minutes west and fly 091 degrees (T) distance 56 miles to Hen and Chickens Shoals to conduct low level bombing, after bombing continue on course 091 degrees (T) for 67 miles, (2) fly course 346 degrees (T) distance 73 miles and (3) fly course 241 degrees (T) distance 120 miles, then returning to U. S. Naval Air Station, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In charge of the flight was a senior qualified flight instructor, piloting one of the planes. The other planes were piloted by qualified pilots with between 350 and 400 hours flight time of which at least 55 was in TBM type aircraft. The weather over the area covered by the track of the navigational problem consisted of scattered rain showers with a ceiling of 2500 feet within the showers and unlimited outside the showers, visibility of 6-8 miles in the showers, 10-12 otherwise. Surface winds were 20 knots with gusts to 31 knots. The sea was moderate to rough. The general weather conditions were considered average for training flights of this nature except within showers. A radio message intercepted at about 4 p.m. was the first indication that Flight 19 was lost. This message, believed to be between the leader on Flight 19 and another pilot in the same flight, indicated that the instructor was uncertain of his position and the direction of the Florida coast. The aircraft also were experiencing malfunction of their compasses. Attempts to establishcommunications on the training frequency were unsatisfactory due to interference from Cuba broadcasting stations, static, and atmospheric conditions. All radio contact was lost before the exact nature of the trouble or the location of the flight could be determined. Indications are that the flight became lost somewhere east of the Florida peninsula and was unable to determine a course to return to their base. The flight was never heard from again and no trace of the planes were ever found. It is assumed that they made forced landings at sea, in darkness somewhere east of the Florida peninsula, possibly after running out of gas. It is known that the fuel carried by the aircraft would have been completely exhausted by 8 p.m. The sea in that presumed area was rough and unfavorable for a water landing. It is also possible that some unexpected and unforeseen development of weather conditions may have intervened although there is no evidence of freak storms in the area at the time. All available facilities in the immediate area were used in an effort to locate the missing aircraft and help them return to base. These efforts were not successful. No trace of the aircraft was ever found even though an extensive search operation was conducted until the evening of 10 December 1945, when weather conditions deteriorated to the point where further efforts became unduly hazardous. Sufficient aircraft and surface vessels were utilized to satisfactorily cover those areas in which survivors of Flight 19 could be presumed to be located. One search aircraft was lost during the operation. A PBM patrol plane which was launched at approximately 7:30 p.m., 5 December 1945, to search for the missing TBM's. This aircraft was never seen nor heard from after take-off. Based upon a report from a merchant ship off Fort Lauderdale which sighted a "burst of flame, apparently an explosion, and passed through on oil slick at a time and place which matched the presumed location of the PBM, it is believed this aircraft exploded at sea and sank at approximately 28.59 N; 80.25 W. No trace of the plane or its crew was ever found. 1945, December 27 VOYAGER II - A 70 foot schooner. 1946, December 5 CITY BELLE - A 120 foot schooner found abandoned. 10 persons missing. 1947, July 3 C-54 AIRPLANE - Took off from Kindley Field, Bermuda en route to Morrison Army Airfield, Palm Beach, Florida. 1948, January 30 STAR TIGER AIRPLANE - Airliner sister ship to the STAR ARIEL, both are Tudor IV, 4 engine model. 1948, February: 416-foot, 7,219 ton British freighter Samkey reported herself at 41o 48’ N longitude, 24o W latitude on January 31. “All well.” Crew of 43. 1948, March AL SNYDER - Disappears in The Triangle. 1948, March 6: yacht Evelyn K. is found deserted in the Florida Keys; 3 persons missing 1948, December 28 DC-3A AIRPLANE - Known as "The Holiday Plane" this twin engine plane disappears within 50 miles south of Miami, Florida. 1949, January 17 DRIFTWOOD - 36 foot cabin cruiser. 1949, January 17 STAR ARIEL AIRPLANE - Sister ship to the STAR TIGER.

  21. I'm glad that you liked the stories. The 3rd video is also relevant because "time" is the fourth dimension, creating Space-time (width, height, depth, time).

  23. A Thriftstore on the Edge of Forever BY BLUESTARMOM When I was about ten years old in 1966, my family temporarily stayed with my grandma in downtown Long Beach, California. Mom took us four kids to a HUGE Goodwill store about seven blocks from the beach. We kids were told the toys were upstairs, so that's where I went. Upstairs, there were huge windows, which of course don't open. You could look down on the street far below. I went over to one of the large windows. However, when I got to there, it was no longer a window, it was a door that I could walk through (if I dared) when I would have fallen to my death if it weren't for this "paranormal opening." The street kind of looked like the street yet it was level, I could have walked straight out that window onto the sidewalk. The people out there looked normal, yet seemed to be dressed in odd, possibly old fashioned clothes and the cars were different then what I was accustomed to seeing. I very much wanted to walk out there, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to walk back in to where I was, so I didn't. I wonder now, if others have walked into these holes/openings and if so, are they stuck there, somewhere other than their own place or origin? My guess would be yes, because if they didn't come back soon, the hole would be gone. If what I saw was another period/era (which I'm not certain of, I think it would have been the past.) I now wonder if others in the future (at a time when they will finally know how these things work) come here and go back, and/or are here but not from a time where they would know how to get back to their own time or dimension, whatever, so happen to be stuck here, and if they were a child like me would they tell someone? If an adult, would they say they had amnesia so as not to be placed in a mental hospital? Anyhow, I buried the thoughts of that day, I mean really, who would've believed me? Fast forward twenty some odd years. R___ (my older sister) came to visit, bringing N___ (her son, my nephew) and N___ brought a friend of his from their hometown Salinas, Calif. They came to spend a few days at our beach house in Laguna Beach. We were up talking late into the night after all the others were fast asleep. We started sharing our life stories and such. After becoming comfortable I asked my sister,"Do you remember when we were staying with grandma downtown Long Beach?" The rest of the conversation went like this: "Yes," my sister replied; she remembered the visit. "Do you remember that giant two story Goodwill store mom used to take us to downtown," I asked. "Yes." "Well... you probably won't believe this, but when I went upstairs.... " "I know what you're going to say!" "Huh?" "You went to the window and saw nothing but a giant black hole outside of it!" I replied, "Oh, my God! No, I saw the street at my own level and I think it was a different time, like a parallel dimension of the exact same spot/place, except at the higher level than it should have been because I was upstairs. I could have walked right out that window, and I contemplated it, but was afraid if I did I wouldn't be able to walk back in!" When my sister R___ told me of her similar oddity about that day, I was dumbfounded! I knew what I had experienced but as a person grows up you try and tell yourself it wasn't true, maybe you were hallucinating, even though you KNOW what you experienced, just trying to make sense of it. It's put out of your mind, and life goes on. I thought possibly R___ being a year and nine months older than me, might have stopped her from seeing "more" as I had, due to how our minds continue to conform to the realities that are the norm and our teachings from culture, parents, teachers and so on. I posted this experience of mine on a forum; someone said that they had read that these cracks/holes or whatever they are, open and close. Therefore, I probably saw it when it was completely open, and R___ probably saw it when it was in the process of opening or closing. It happened. I believe I will always ponder and read up on this subject and the subject matters that may relate to it.
  24. Road Vortex BY PAUSE My true story took place in October, 2010. My husband just had triple bypass surgery, and after being discharged from the hospital, he spent the next ten days in a facility for cardiac rehab. The facility is situated on a lonely country road in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. One night when I left the facility, it was already dark, so I took the main route back instead of the shortcut, because I don't like to travel those dark roads alone. I passed Williams College, the Willlows Motel, Subway, and all the local businesses on this route, and was just crossing into the city of North Adams, when it seemed like everything went black. The bright lights of the town had vanished, but I very quickly realized that the road had narrowed considerably and had become winding instead of straight. Suddenly, I was crossing a tiny bridge and realized that I was not where I should be at all -- and I had no explanation for it. One minute I was traveling on the main route which I have traveled all of my life and know it well; the next minute I was on a narrow country road with not a clue as to why I was there or how I got there. This happened in the blink of an eye. I began talking to myself out loud, saying things like, "What the hell is going on, and where the hell am I?" I repeated these questions out loud over and over, with my heart pounding, and nothing making sense to me, but I kept driving because I was too frightened to do anything else. When I got to the end of whatever lonely, narrow, winding road I was on, I looked up and saw a street sign. It said, "Gale Rd." and I now realized that I was going to come out almost back where I had started from, except that the road I was on would come out at the shortcut that I didn't take that night, because it was too late and too dark out. Now I had no choice. I drove the shortcut route and ended up back in the center of Williamstown. I had to once again pass by Wiliams College, the Willows Motel, Subway, etc., then to North Adams. None of this makes sense to me but it did happen. Also, when I reached my destination (my home in Adams, Mass.), it hadn't taken me any longer to get there than any other time. My husband said he would call me in a half hour. He knows that it takes 25 minutes to get home and I was home when he called. It should have taken nearly double the amount of time to get home since it appears that I drove both routes home that night, one after the other. I don't know what happened to me that night. All I know is that in the blink of an eye, I was approximately five miles back where I started from on a road that I know I never would have taken on a dark night. I will never drive alone at night again. It's only been a few days, and the thought sends shivers down my spine.
