A Discovered Time Traveler

Hmm. Einstein, do you mind telling us about some of your gathered data?

I can remember the first time I tried this experiment. It was about 15 years ago. I decided to take a different route home on my lunch hour. The different route took me past a hardware store. So I stopped to get something. On the way home as I approached a familiar intersection, the light changed red. Anyway I have been through this intersection so many times, I was familiar with the timing order sequence of the lights as they changed. The order in sequence was always North, South, East, and then West. I was in the South going direction. But this time it was different. Right after East and West, my turn to go came. That was out of sequence. I don't think most people would even notice something like that. But I did. And on my way back through the intersection after lunch, the timing order was back to normal.

 

Since I got a positive result the very first time, I will occasionally just change a minor habit to see if anything changes. About 10 days ago I made just a minor alteration to the route I take on my morning jog. On the home stretch there is a cross walk which I have religiously crossed through for longer than I can remember. But 10 days ago for no reason at all I decided to cut across the road early. I knew that was an alteration to my normal routine. So I kept my eyes peeled for any resulting changes. The change came the next morning. During my jog, I always pass a gas station that I usually buy gas for my car. While passing, I noticed the price of gas had gone down 2 cents from $4.49 9/10 to $4.47 9/10. The price has been going down ever since that little minor change I made to my jogging route. Currently the price is at $4.19 9/10. Quite a drop in just 10 days. Now I know you can call that coincidence if you like. But I now routinely have made sure I cross the road early every morning since.

 

And there is one other thing I came across shortly after that small change. I have this theory on how to build a time machine. But the theory has always been incomplete. Like there was a missing link I needed. I needed some factual basis that I didn't have prior to that little minor jogging route change. But that first night after the change, I experienced an enormous mental rush of data. My mind seemed to be having an adrenalin rush. A lot of observable facts all of a sudden became part of a big puzzle. But this time all the puzzle pieces fit smoothly together. So I kind of look at that morning jog 10 days ago as the turning point into a timeline where my mind has the capacity to actually build a working time machine. So right now I have the blueprint for a time machine. And of course I have to build it. Just for fun.

I might use body paint to write something across my forehead, like Bradley Cooper's character did in the movie, "Silver Linings Playbook". That's something I've never done before - and probably won't do again! :)

I forgot to mention the basis for this little experiment was also derived from an email interaction I had with my ex-wife. You could say it was a email experiment that had a mind altering effect on her.

 

It must have been about 25 years ago she came up to me and told me about this guy that had a time machine. I asked her to describe it. She held out her hands to roughly depict the size of the gadget. It wasn't that big. Not much larger than a cigar box. Of course at the time I didn't believe a word she told me. So in my email to her just recently I asked her to recall these memories. Apparently this affected her in an unforeseen way. She wrote back saying something about experiencing dual realities. She described an episode where she opened a container and seen flour turn to rice. And later going to the table to pick up her tea cup. But it wasn't there. Then she thought about where it could be, and looked up and it was there. This is when I realized the similarity between her experiences and the John Titor email experiment. All I had done was ask her to dig up some old memories. But I'll just bet those memories are in an alternate version of her on another timeline. She accessed those memories with the result of winding up in that alternate timeline. But with a unique twist. Apparently she has the ability to return to her original timeline. It makes me wonder how she did it. Possibly she experienced fear. I'll have to write her back on that. Anyway this is the first I've come across someone actually witnessing and describing a transition from one reality to another.

 

So I suppose you could ask your wife to ask you to dig up an old memory she has that involves you. Thus forcing you to access a memory that may be on another timeline where things are a little different. This might be more interesting to do rather than the body paint idea.

Einstein, I must say, you pick the silliest things and try to equate them to alternate realities based on your changing some little event in your everyday actions.

I wasn't offering FMS as a diagnosis but a starting point to read to help understand how memory works or "doesn't work". There are many more articles explaining it in more detail. FMS was just a place to start.

Explain this time machine to me. I'm curious as to how it works.

 

Gpa: Yeah, I thought that too.

Explain this time machine to me. I'm curious as to how it works.

Gpa: Yeah, I thought that too.

The principle behind a time machine would be the easiest to understand. I always look to mother nature to answer these types of questions. On the Earth we know that the gravitational field of the Earth has a slowing effect on time. So you could say that objects with weight experience the flow of time more slowly. On the Sun the same object weighs close to 30 times what it weighs here on Earth. We know that time flows much more slowly on the Sun.

 

But conditions on the Sun are much different than here on Earth. Because Hydrogen is being converted to Helium on the Sun, some of that weight disappears. A source I found says that four and a half billion tons of weight disappear every second on the Sun. Now pretty much all the stars in the universe do this. But not just with Hydrogen. All the elements up to Iron cause weight to be lost during their formation within a star. The formation of elements above Iron take more weight to form and would cause a star to go cold if this was taking place.

 

So I equate all this disappearing weight as a dominate one way direction in the universe. Do you notice anything else going just one way? Time seems to have a one way direction too. And the flow rate of time is tied to the force of gravity, which also influences an objects weight. These three things, gravity, weight, and time, all change in a proportional relationship to each other.

 

On the Sun there is a ratio of weight disappearing to weight remaining. On the Earth, you could say that doesn't occur. Unless you add up all the weight lost due to fission of the radioactive elements. I suppose that could be calculated based on estimated quantities of the known fissionable elements present. But it does appear that the Sun is the dominate source for the creation of the flow of time here in our neck of the woods.

 

But that is the mechanism mother nature uses. So all we have to do to control the flow of time, would be to either create weight or destroy weight. So a matter-antimatter annihilation or creation event would work to change the flow of time locally. But maybe we don't need that much power. That's what I'm willing to bet on. A machine that simulates the emissions of a matter creation or annihilation event.

 

Just by creating what I call weight fields. Years ago I did some experiments with a Tesla coil, and discovered the moving electric fields created by the Tesla coil cause objects to attract. Just like gravity. Its not gravity. But it has something in common with gravity. The electrified objects develop weight. An attractive type of weight. I also did some experiments with moving magnetic fields, and discovered a way to make a repulsion field. Kind of like antigravity. But not, because it was magnetic repulsion. But the moving magnetic fields created an opposite type of weight. A repulsive type of weight.

 

This research has been sitting still until just recently when I came across a Chladni plate demonstration on YouTube. The demonstration was done with a circular plate. When I looked at that, I saw a model of the Bohr atom. It was so simple. The sound waves would resonate at specific frequencies which depend on the size of the metal plate. To me it looks like a mechanism to hold things in place with standing waves. The concentric rings on the Chladni plate looked like the atomic orbital rings in a Bohr atom. This was done with sound waves.

 

This made me wonder if something similar could be done with weight waves. By creating standing waves of weight that increase in intensity for moving in one direction in time. Or decreasing intensity that would cause a reverse direction in time.

 

This is pretty simple. I think a 10 year old could understand it. Of course engineering the concept into a working time machine might be a challenge. But at least I'm working with a blueprint, borrowed from mother nature.

 

By the way, in case nobody noticed. No black-holes or wormholes were used in my time machine blueprint. Just facts.

You might think its silly. And I'll admit it does appear silly from a skeptical point of view. But ask yourself, are you basing your reply on facts or beliefs?

 

Since it is delving into the inner workings of our minds based on physical observations. We really don't have any concrete proof of some of the strange phenomena that appears to go on. But there are many of us that do experience this altervu phenomena. And I suppose there are also some of us that might choose the inebriated state as a cure for altervu experiences. Not going to mention any names.

She and I have many different memories that we've sussed out over the last 12 years. Her memories fit with my son's memories and the memories of my other family members and our friends. I'm the variable.

 

I don't think I'm physically traveling to an alternate universe. From time to time, my consciousness shifts to a place where things are noticeably different for me alone. Titor, Zeshua, Titorian/Bransonian (and possibly others) have been catalysts for my drastic shifts. Other shifts are minor; without obvious connection to any person who claims to be traveling or communicating in time.

 

I'm going to delay trying to trigger altervus for now. Too many regular, real-life changes are happening at the moment. It might get confusing. One more idea for those willing to experiment with potential altervu triggers - wear clothes made for the opposite sex - unless you're a transvestite. Wouldn't be much effect there, I guess.

 

For those who don't know or have forgotten my early posts after Titor's departure, there was something subtle but upsetting. People in general were ruder, less kind, and less friendly than in my original reality. It's not like I was in the alternate Star Trek universe where Spock had a goatee and people killed each other to move up in rank. It was just less pleasant - people bumping into each other without apology, doing mildly cruel things to one another, more belligerent driving, etc... I mention this as a caveat for anyone who might experiment with time or reality shifts. Maybe it is possible to move to a better reality by focusing on a positive outcome. My early altervus were happening almost daily and they were creating real fear, which might have caused the negative outcome. Try focusing on becoming lucky, happy, at peace, etc..., while you wear your wife's granny panties or your boyfriend's necktie. :)

Skarpz: Did you participate in that Titor experiment also?

I was not in that specific experiment with John Titor. Something happened in 2004 in which I got a message from a Jonathon when I first started coming to these forums.

 

Last summer I was taking a prescription drug that made the altervus more apparent and I stopped experiencing them so much once I stopped taking those pills. The shot form of the drug didn't give me those affects it was just the pill.

 

I experienced things like people acting a little more out of control than usual by people wanting to speed a lot in town just randomly everywhere and a ton of accidents in a short amount of time. A shop owner that I usually see a lot dyed her hair for the first time and one day her hair wasn't dyed and she was really worried not herself and told me that one of my friends was married but the thing was was that she wasn't even engaged to her boyfriend at the time yet and thr next day the shop owner was back to dyed hair again. Just one day that week back to her normal hair. Another time where I was waiting for a friend for many hours where she set up shop and I called her later and she said she was there the whole time. One time I visited her at her street shop her hair was down she wore glasses wore a different kind of dress and spoke in a different tone and manner. That was kind of odd for me and I've known her for 11 years now. This last one might not be too much off a variation but it was like the gothic trend just came back for the summer and I remember a tweet with a picture of a gothic woman and some preppy woman saying that it was disgusting. Just randomly seeing gothic women allaround town seemed word And it was just the summer. That may have been normal though.

 

A couple of years ago (before taking that one pill) I got baptized in a church that I now don't belong to but the strange part was that this guy remembers getting baptized on that same day with the same woman I got baptized with and at the same exact time except he couldn't have since I know that out was just me and her that day. It was odd that he remembers my baptism as if it were his memory and on the official paper his baptism was my day but that doesn't add up.

 

Those were some of my experiences.

 

 

Here now and then. As time passes, you wonder about it all.

I love Doctor Who. The ultimate Time Lord.

All I have is time.

Nelson Mandela, Stephen Hawking, Arthur C. Clark, Roy Orbison (twice), and now Jonathan Winters are all non sequitur, dead then alive again, celebrities for me.

I and my partner also both recall Jonathon Winters dying quite some time ago (long before his recent death in 2013). Some thoughts on that - a relatively little known fact I believe about JW. He had Multiple Personality Disorder. People with MPD usually have very high intelligence and may have extreme mental abilities (I spent over a year with an MPD person). Somewhere else on TTI here there was some discussion relating to abused persons (which is the primary cause of MPD) possibly having high PSI and if I recall correctly that was being tied to some time phenomenon. The person I knew could readily travel out of their body fully conscious and see details as if they were flying about like a bird.

 

For more weirdness ... I recall (although there is a slight chance I have this confused with someone else) that the actor Scott Bakula who played in Quantum Leap had accidentally shot himself with a gun that was a prop for a TV or movie set and that prop was supposed to be loaded with blanks. In my recollection he died. This was back in the early 1990's. I watched very little TV after about the year 2000 and had not seen him in any TV or movies. Then recently I found him playing the captain in Star Trek Enterprise which started in 2001. I was very surprised he was still alive. Until reading this thread I just assumed I was mistaken about some facts around this situation but now I have to wonder ...

 

The number of people who remember Jonathan Winters dying twice is very strange. Oh yes and I also was one who thought Ernest Borgnine died long before 2012.

Another experience that happened recently with my partner that fits into Einstein's idea. She walks nearly every day and most often in a circular route always taking the walk in the same direction. One day she decided to walk it the opposite way (clockwise instead of counter-clockwise). When she did she spotted some large crystals just a few feet off her path that she always walks. My first thought was that by walking the opposite way it was easier to spot them. However when I took the walk with her and saw where she had found them it seemed a lot more likely that she would have seen them on her usual walking direction (which she has done for years) rather than coming from the opposite direction.

I would like to put my 2 cents in on this again but I won't have time till the weekend. Until then let me leave this comment to consider.

 

Back before highways with marked exit ramps and road signs, a few here may remember Rt. 66 as I do. But even before that, when anyone was traveling , if they had any intention of returning to where they started from they would periodically look back over there shoulder and take a good long look. This was called "checking your back trail". Why look back? Because, going the other direction looks entirely different. Landmarks are reversed and even appear completely different. Walking a familiar trail, in the opposite direction than usual, will appear different. It's not a big deal.

I still look backward in parking lots, to see where my car is in relation to the door. Otherwise, I walk around looking like an idiot with my remote-entry key-fob under my chin, acting as a range extending antenna, trying to get the parking lights flashing or the alarm chirping.

 

Since physics is philosophy, let's examine the sixth sense. The gut feeling that tells you not to do something or the little voice that wants you to pay attention - that kind of thing. Trusting your instincts over your rationality seems contrary to enlightenment. I do it now, whenever I can push through my own skepticism and doubt that's based on logic. If other people are involved, it gets even more difficult. But, I've found it pays off.

 

Now, with regard to shifting into alternate worldlines through choice ... here's another opportunity. Chose to live a better life, in a better world, where you are a better person. If our mind slides from one reality to the next with every choice, choose better! The power of positive thinking may be less of a spiritual concept than a common sense thing. If you believe things will work out well, or that you are more capable than you thought - it could lead you there just as easily as choosing to turn left or right when you come to an intersection of roads.

 

Like I mentioned, my early altervus scared me very much. That may explain why I ended up in worldlines where things were worse than where I started. Flip that energy around to fearlessness, plus an expectation of a positive outcome, and the worldlines are your oysters!

There are physiological as well as psychological attributes to "why" things seem different, "altervues" if you wish, when viewed from different aspects, whether physical or psychical. Added together they effectuate reality or, at least one's individual perception of it.

 

I am more familiar with the physiological aspects so I will offer my 2 cents from that perspective.

 

Many of you already understand that your right optical nerve transmits to the left hemisphere of your brain and likewise the left to the right hemisphere. You may also understand that the different hemispheres are responsible for different cognitive functions. This is where the fun begins. As you encounter your daily world, the objects within the field of vision on either side of you are received and processed differently according to the hemisphere that receives them. To avoid going into an overly descriptive analysis, I will present you with the basics and most of you will be capable of adding the relevance on your own as you consider these factors.

 

The left hemisphere/ right eye;

 

•Expressive speech

 

•Receptive language

 

•Language (general)

 

•Complex motor functions

 

•Vigilance

 

•Paired associate learning

 

Liaison to consciousness

 

•Ideation

 

Conceptual similarities

 

•Temporal analysis

 

Analysis of detail

 

•Arithmetic

 

•Writing

 

•Calculation

 

•Finger naming

 

•Right-left orientation

 

•Sequential processing

 

The right hemisphere /left eye;

 

Spatial orientation

 

•Simple language comprehension

 

•Nonverbal ideation

 

•Picture and pattern sense

 

•Performance-like functions

 

Spatial integration

 

•Creative associative thinking

 

•Facial recognition

 

•Sound recognition

 

•Nonverbal paired associate thought

 

•Tactile perception

 

•Gestalt perception

 

•Picture processing

 

•Intuitive problem solving

 

•Psychic experiences

 

•Humorous thoughts

 

•Simultaneous processing

 

The Superior Colliculus;

 

This is the direct connection between vision and motor-related actions. There is no thought involved in the process. This may have some relevance to the altervue phenomenon in that a person is focusing on what's there or different.

 

The general function of the tectal system is to direct behavioral responses toward specific points in egocentric ("body-centered") space. Each layer of the tectum contains a topographic map of the surrounding world in retinotopic coordinates, and activation of neurons at a particular point in the map evokes a response directed toward the corresponding point in space. In primates, the tectum ("superior colliculus") has been studied mainly with respect to its role in directing eye movements. Visual input from the retina, or "command" input from the cerebral cortex, create a "bump" of activity in the tectal map, which, if strong enough, induces a saccadic eye movement. Even in primates, however, the tectum is also involved in generating spatially directed head turns, arm-reaching movements, and shifts in attention that do not involve any overt movements.

This type response, looking toward a change in your surroundings and even raising an arm to deflect something whether actually there or not, should not be confused with the reflex action which involves more areas of the brain, this one included.

 

In other species, the tectum is involved in a wide range of responses, including whole-body turns in walking rats, swimming fishes, or flying birds; tongue-strikes toward prey in frogs; fang-strikes in snakes; etc

This is a big part in 'my' hypothesis of how/why fish can school, move in instant synchronicity. (Sorry, I know this has nothing to do with this part of the topic but, I just wanted to add it. It's my post. I can do what I want.)

 

Superior colliculus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

To sum this up;

 

Altervues may well be a result of the abstruse nature of the brain and how it functions in "our" sense of reality.

 

Reality is the next topic for discussion in relation to Einstein's alternate time line experiments.

 

If you wish to understand this more ( or just see some of the crazy things I read ) these links are pretty good ones.

Very cool information Gpa. Isn't it interesting that we can be right-eyed or left-eyed just like we are left-handed or right-handed?

Who, what, when and where are easy. "Why?" is the most difficult question of all.

 

I'd like your opinion on something. I believe it to be fact, but I'm fine with you looking at it as a hypothetical. If people could perceive changes to the timeline (whether by their personal actions or the actions of another), how might the brain process it?

Researchers don't know which part of the brain memories are stored in. Experiments I read about a long time ago show tests on lab animals with different parts of the brain removed don't seem to have an affect on remembered behavior. Maybe there are some of us that have brains that don't correctly retrieve memories. I know my brain appears to be retrieving altervu memories quite frequently. Possibly my memories are on a bad server somewhere in another dimension where memory servers exist.

If people could perceive changes to the timeline (whether by their personal actions or the actions of another), how might the brain process it? [/quote']How the brain perceives time is still partially a mystery. We understand some of the ways but in many instances it crosses over from one area of the brain to another and another and some how it is all correlated together to give the needed outcome.

 

Neuroscience has conducted experiments in psychophysics using fMRI, EEG, and computational modeling to try and better understand how the brain perceives time. The ability to perceive time is crucial in many daily activities. Walking, driving a car, even picking up a cup of coffee require that your brain uses the correct time intervals. Athletes practice to enhance this ability. One study has determined that time distortion illusions are less apparent when Newtonian dynamics are involved. These are the everyday facts of physics we grew up with and they lend to intuition and an ability to "expect" something.

 

Might this expectation be a precursor to the perceived discrepancies in "altered time lines"? You expected one thing to happen but "it" didn't happen, something else did and as a result, you believe the time line was altered. What actually occurred was an error in your intuition. If your intuitive expectation was something you were "strongly expecting", for whatever reason, consciously or unconsciously, it may seem to appear as a memory, not an expectation.

 

That's the best answer I can give to your question. Hope it helps some.

 

If your interested in more reading, this guy is good.

- a relatively little known fact I believe about JW. He had Multiple Personality Disorder.

He suffered from bipolar disorder, not DID, dissociative identity disorder, the current name for what used to be called multiple personality disorder. For a diagnosis of DID he would have also have had to have been diagnosed with a host of other mental disorders. The multiple personality disorder diagnosis was a media rumor that went around in 1959. It simply wasn't true. But in the 1950's actors weren't supposed to get sick, have affairs or have mental illness. The mainstream media/press loved to sensationalize anything that deviated from the script (something that hasn't changed much). The rumor started because Jonathan was a comedian who specialized in character/actor impersonation. Thus his mental breakdown had to have been because he wasn't acting when he did other characters. He was the "other" characters - multiple personality disorder - PDQ. Being a talented, brilliant actor and comedian couldn't be the answer. ;)

 

He remained a reasonably active actor until early this year doing mostly voice acting. When Smurfs II is released later this year he will again be the voice of Papa Smurf. He lived in my community (Santa Barbara), was well known and out in the public all the time. He didn't die until three weeks ago.

 

Semper Fi, Marine! We will miss you.

Wow, different memories..... what a strange topic.

 

Or would be if I had not had an 'experience' First of all, no claims, not a whisper of another timeline/worldline... no preconceived ideas. Just a little memory that I do not understand. (I shall type the story as I remember it, not checking facts on the net... just a memory)

 

OK, the story goes like this. When I was at school, there was an oil tanker accident. The oil tanker was called the Torrey Canyon. It was somewhere off the south coast of Britain if I recall, maybe Devon, or somewhere like that.

 

The children's news programme at the time on BBC1 was John Craven's Newsround. (It is just called Newsround these days) Anyhow, I remember leaving school and running home across the park every night, because on Newsround we got to see the RAF flying out and dropping incendiary bombs on the oil slick to try and burn it away (I guess dispersants and booms were a thing of the future)

 

As far my home was concerned, I can remember it clearly, the TV, the carpet, my mum and dad. All as I remember it. But then logic shows me that I was wrong. I was wrong on so many counts.

 

The School that was on the other side of the park was my secondary school (ages 11 to 16) and by the time I was at that school, we had not only had our first colour TV, but we were using a TV with a remote control.... yes, fancy :D

 

I recall the news reports on a black and white TV. This would be a problem, as we went colour when I was still at Junior school (I remember the man from the shop coming to install it...... and yes kids, back then, you did not buy a tv and take it home, you made an appointment for it to be delivered and fitted..... :D). When I was at Junior School, I started to walk home ON MY OWN!! (very grown up) but again, I did not cross the park when I walked home from that school either.

 

So the current major failings of this are the TV was wrong, it was the Black and White one, not a colour. The direction home from school did not apply to a school I went to whilst we still had a black and white TV.

 

Now this memory has bothered me for a long time, but only because of a chance conversation. I would have been about 14 maybe 15 years old at the time, and on a Friday night, my father and some of his friends used to go to the pub for an hour or so. One night, they started talking about the Torrey Canyon Disaster (possibly because another tanker had had an incident.. the reason for the conversation was unimportant) but it became a bit strange when I joined in, and was telling them all about when I used to run home from school to see the RAF "Unleash Hell!!"

 

At which point the question was asked by one of my father's friends, "How old are you?" and therein lies the problem.... The Torrey Canyon went down in 1965 (I think)...... A full 4 years before I was born. So how can I have memories when I would have been at least 11 years old (because of the direction I took home from school) but with the wrong TV (although it would have been the TV my parents had in 1965)

 

Or was it just a dream? It is a story I have mentioned a few times over the last years, but maybe this site and the 'other' forum with a similar subject matter has raised the thought again. Although my primary reason for joining is the Philly Experiment, rather than time travel, the time travel forums are still very very interesting. And, if I have success with my Philly Experiments..... well I think the expression is "Today Invisibility, Tomorrow The whole of space and time" :D

 

Anyhow, whatever you make of the story above, it would be cool to hear about it. Or, am I (as I suspect) just insane? :D

For more weirdness ... I recall (although there is a slight chance I have this confused with someone else) that the actor Scott Bakula who played in Quantum Leap had accidentally shot himself with a gun that was a prop for a TV or movie set and that prop was supposed to be loaded with blanks. In my recollection he died. This was back in the early 1990's.

 

Just saw this, and wondered is this not what happened to the actor in "The Crow"?

 

There was a scene where a bullet was loaded into a gun, then off-camera, the bullet was replaced with a blank. Obviously the bullet had had the gunpowder removed. But when they removed it, a fragment was left in the barrel and when the scene was filmed of the crow getting shot, he really died. I believe they finished the film using a digital mask..... At least I think that was the story.

Welcome, Phil.

 

Ein,

 

Learning about your experience of time,

 

I can understand your being absent-minded.

 

What I don't understand are your self-contradictory

 

assertions about so-called feasibilities of time travel.

 

Pertinent to some of your experiences

 

are some terms associated with déjà vu:

With God, all things are possible,

 

just not equally probable.

Thank you Syzygy, That was a brilliant bit of video. And yes it does explain quite a bit. Maybe not the recollection of an event several years before I was born but maybe I have just amalgamated memories so that a documentary of the Torrey Canyon became mixed in with my own childhood..... Who Knows.

 

As far as my experiments (both the car and also the Philly Exp) I have to be objective. I have a strong belief that time travel is possible, but there are so many fakes and attention seeking numpties that I will not allow myself to believe until I have evidence. This is also why when I have the test rig all assembled, then I can start to document and monitor what is happening and see if there are any unusual effects and then focus on those. I hope then to be able to build my own evidence. Part of the reason for broadcasting this live whilst I am doing it is to ensure that everything is 'peer-reviewed' so I know I am not seeing an effect just by the force of hope.

 

The same mindset is also applicable to the car test. I have a problem all based around the conservation of energy. It is a law that I cannot see a way round. Therefore in my mind, the car experiment is doomed to 100% failure. Having said that, I know PHD students who are writing theses on this subject; from my own prototype, I have seen how much gas can be created, so maybe there is a very small percentage of success.

 

Also I sometimes get surprised when I give a lecture, demonstration or even just chatting; people ask me how I know what I know. I don't think that it is anything special, but others sometimes do. So maybe my contradictory views are maybe not so much as a 'not possible' response, but maybe more of "it is possible, but beyond my skills to achieve".

 

But there is only one way to determine my skill level with both of these..... and that is by experimentation. So, if you hear on the news that a new black hole has been found in our universe, and it is currently 'eating' Yorkshire..... You will know that I had a little more success than I was expecting :D
