Time Travel in another Dimension


Nice little highway...

Imagine a sea of energy with an indefinite horizon and unimaginable depths, warped into dimensions we cannot even fathom. Bring your mind to another level. Imagine sailing this energy sea to other time and other planets.

  The Inter Galactic Passageway

           Here’s a snippet from the end of the Sojourn Series first book, Desperado: 




Eight hours and twenty-one minutes after he put his boot on the first step, Loftus, smacking his lips and longing for a drink of water, counted less than twenty steps to the top of the stairs. Fog covered the valley and the light green sky had darkened, but an amazing glow appeared above the shadowed stairway. As he trudged up the final few stairs, a flat glowing rose slab sloped infinitely along the linear shore of the brilliant green sea. The air was cooler and drier, but he did not see any boats docked along the shore. 

          “ This is an engineering miracle, Captain.”

          “ I don’t see the boats. Damn. Why wouldn’t they be here?”

          “ This thing extends to the horizon. Whatever the horizon is.”





         Loftus and Zach board ancient vessels to inadvertently shove off from the ancient underground slab or dam that holds the vast dimensional sea in place. Soon they embark on a journey across the Intergalactic Passageway. When I lived in California years ago I visualized such possibilities and when I moved to Cape Cod I would stand on the beach and stare across the ocean, but my mind would be fixed with Tom Loftus and Zach on the edge of the intergalactic passageway.


            I repeat a hundred times daily that I am not a physicist but just a simple spinner of yarns. However- this yarn spinner’s mind is cluttered with the pontifications of Kepler, Einstein, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, and Stephan Hawking.  Mix in HG Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Orson Wells. Add a little dash of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. Question Being: Is any of this speculation even possible?



            Here’s a nifty little article by National Geographic: 




Are Wormholes Tunnels for Time Travel? 



The Bridge to Nowhere


         Stefan Lovgren talks about Einstein-Rosen bridges. Is that anything like the bridge to nowhere? 


An Einstein-Rosen Bridge begins with a black hole. Not something we see every day on the way to work or in the field at the kids’ afternoon soccer practice. Black holes are contracted stars that have gravitationally imploded upon themselves, producing phenomenal, cataclysmic forces.

 Beware ye lay men here comes the mathematical constructs and a scientific laws. I prefer to look at it as the other side of the mountain. Just as I leave one valley on a mountain road, I cross over into a different land on the other side. Jim Morrison might have been there, Maybe he’s still there:


  Break on through to the other side

 You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day;
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side


 No light, no matter, nothing escapes and anything falling into the black hole is stretched apart. I wondered what if all these forces could be contained and directed across not only space but time. Who knows as our knowledge grows what forces we can utilize? Did anyone living at the time of the Revolution with the exception of Franklin, figure they would flip a switch and an electric current would cause of glass bulb filament to glow? I say we will do things we only think of now. 

Robert F. Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy

 I remember that George Bernard Shaw line that Robert F. Kennedy spoke so eloquently in his ill-fated run for the Presidency in 1968:  Some men see things as they are and say, “Why?” I dream of things that never were and say, “Why not?”

So, when my California Dreaming materialized into the Inter Galactic Passageway- I truly said,    ” Why not? “

One Response to “Time Travel in another Dimension”

  1. Master Time Traveler,

    Time travel and interdimensional movement are two of the more intriguing scientific concepts. Just think, if I could go back to that last hockey game of my senior year in high school, maybe I could change my stick angle ever so slightly and score that goal on a breakaway instead of hitting the damn post….But would I be as I was then or would I just be an old guy in an ill fitting uniform for that moment….Oh, the possibilities….Having read the excellent Sojourn Trilogy, I thought you made made great use of the concept embodied by wormholes and showed real imagination in developing those horrid Creods….Sard knows all….

    P.S. That was an interesting use of Mr. Morrison’s song (but I think he had other things in mind other than time travel).
