From the horse and buggy to a man on the moon and now light years beyond. Time Cloaking now a perceived reality.

When I was in college I had a mid-student life crisis and came within a whisker of changing my major to Theoretical Physics.  I still try to keep up with the field, which IMHO is on the verge of changing mankind’s perception of the universe and the very nature of how we perceive “reality” and the nature of our existence. I mention this because scientists have experimentally confirmed  the hypothesis of Martin McCall, a Theorist in the UK that time can be masked thus making an event impossible to see. The very manipulation of space-time, in this instance the time part, has ramification that are profound IMHO. You see, even though time seemingly moves in one direction, in the world of theoretical physics the math indicates it is possible to move both forward and back in space-time thus implying that people are not really dead as much as they are “just a ways back there” in the space-time continuum.

It gets complicated quick but PBS recently aired a 3 part show recently on NOVA that nicely explains that and far more.

Since we’re on the topic of theoretical physics I’ll add today is the birthday of the most famous theoretical physicist and ALS survivor of ’em all as Stephen Hawkings celebrates his 70th birthday today.

  1. This went over my head. My current favorite method of altering the space-time continuum is reading. Thousands of years worth of the best the human imagination has to offer is as close as a bookshelf or library.
