A Time Travelers Request

An environmentally appropriate car (hybrid? electric?) might be suitable given your mission. How will you pay for it? How will you pay for a car? How did you find a place to live? What are cars and housing like where you are from? 

Well, I think I will pay for it by working at a job. My job is within bike distance, and my emergency time kit had 7,000$ to help me buy a small used house. The cars were not even really cars, they were more like planes. I think they were highly developed and only upper middle class could really afford it. The housing actually hasn't changed much, just there were more hotels and apartments.

Thank you Chicago Writer for the Info.

Jackson - I am interested in what you have to say. I am a very curious person over here and interested in anything you would like to tell us. I have a lot of questions and I don’t want you to interpret that as skepticism. I do hope the others will not scare you away. Does it really matter if anyone believes you or not? Your experience is your experience. Please do share it.    

 

Please—tell us what you’d like and what you can remember.
 

Memory can be a strange thing and I want to know literally everything you have to say! 
 

What started WW3.5? 

No, it is fine if people are skeptical and they don't believe me. I have already taken that into consideration. It helps when people believe me though, I am not going to lie. I would just like to return to my time and save my brethren. Then just have a party, maybe a reunion. Then I would want a nice bath and a good nights rest. I am still alive on my two legs, breathing, and alive. That is enough for me. WW3.5 was started because a civil war broke out in the U.S. That is why they are no longer the U.S., they are the UNC, or the United Nation Countries. WW3 did happen, but the Civil war started only 2 years after. So, most people call it the 1/2 war. It started because the government started to limit our supplies, send troops as police enforcement (local police even believed that the Government was corrupt), and limit the amount and kinds of guns we could have. It is kinda hazy but I think the minimum age limit was 28. I can say that my closest brother of the brethren was Joseph Williams. He was the best guy that I knew. He was something of a natural leader. I miss him. I do know that houses in my time were constantly being redesigned, so the hotels were often needed. The rich always stuck with the government. I will talk again when someone asks a question or if I remember something. Thank you. Remember, Stay Inquisitive.

Thank you for sharing info with us. What is the job that you do? How does it compare to what you did before (if you can remember that)? 

I work at a Amazon facility in the U.S., but I also work odd jobs from home and spend my time fishing. I can't remember a time I had salmon that good. I think I worked at a research base at the UNC, but I know I wasn't the brightest out of all of them. I mostly put together blueprint they made to see if their ideas worked. Every now and then I would be testing the technology, and also help clean with the janitors.

Was Amazon still around in your day? Do you like working there? I'm relieved to learn that you have access to a 2 million dollar loan, as that would be more than sufficient -- if not generous -- in helping you buy a house and a car. Have you purchased a car yet and if so, what did you get and how do you like it?

Amazon was a very big corporation. They went from supplying premade goods to helping study the sun flares and building stuff for people. It was hard work but when you completed a job it was oddly satisfying. 2 million dollars seems to be a lot in this time. I am guessing inflation isn't very bad either. I have purchased a car that is really nice for this time. I really do like it. It beats having to take public transport all the time. Here is a picture I found online (I would rather not show my license plate). It is a KIA Forteimage.jpeg.242104981b5d1f44f2079a60ad6c9129.jpeg

Oh yes. The concept of driving it is very similar but most cars were slim and they ran off of plastic waste. These cars are a little big and they are not completely silent.

Our cars te definitely not silent if they run on gas. Hybrids and electric vehicles are much quieter. 
 

Can you share more about how you are adjusting? How long have you been here? Are you noticing language differences? 

Is our technology very hard to figure out? 
 

So if there was a lot of poverty in your time, were you considered well off or were you poor? 
 

I know you work weekends so I won’t expect a quick reply. 
 

ps. Did you celebrate Halloween in your time? What was the candy like?

Yes, there has been a new thing that has developed to help the Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics become easier to understand. A simpler name also makes such easier to remember.

What is the "new thing" that upgrades the interpretation of quantum mechanics to a full blown theory?  It's rather helpful when the OP is explicit.  Otherwise simply stating a "new thing" has occurred makes it impossible to have an intelligent conversation.

 

Remember, there is a huge difference between an interpretation of a theory and the theory itself.  In science a "theory" is not just someone's opinion (which an interpretation is).  A scientific theory requires a full explanation in the form of a scholarly paper, includes all the math, footnotes, publication of the paper in a major scientific journal that is specific to the science of the theory, is subjected to peer review and defense by the author, after which it is ultimately generally accepted as correct by a majority of the scientists in that specific field of study.

 

So who wrote the theory, when did (s)he receive their PhD and from what university, when was the paper published , in what journal and who was the physicist's PhD advisor?

Bro do you remember any of the new theories or discoveries about the universe in your world : or atleat the satisfying definition of THE TIME

Well we have discovered how to make LASERS into guns. (I only know about this because I used to be in a government faction) They were really cool, but somewhat ineffective. The definition of time where I was is very mixed up. All major scientists or groups of scientists had their own theory that had some kind of mistake or error that could be disproved.

I think it was one of my relatives. If I remember correctly my great grandma Joann was big into the studies of time and manipulation of space. She may have received her PhD around 3057-3070. It never got published for some odd reason and I have never met her advisor.

I was well and healthy. We constantly went broke and we were never poor. Halloween was very big in small towns and cities but some places were to dangerous to go out. The candy really hasn't changed a bit except that none of it is super fake. I love it.

Interesting. Did traditional guns also exist in your time? Is there any awareness in your time of the gun violence experienced in the U.S. during our time? (ie., did that surprise you when you arrived here?)

Oh there were some, not many, people aware of gun violence and people did not take it lightly. I was one of the few that do because I got shot by one before. It was painful. I am very glad that this place I have arrived at people actually care. I am not so sure of this next generation though.
