Earlier this year, Jay Cheel and his film crew traveled to Orlando Florida to interview Larry Haber for a new documentary about time travel. They also interviewed me. In the discussion, Jay informed me that Larry had supplied them with some sort of mysterious document proving John Titor was a time traveler. A letter was also given to Jay from John's mother. Both documents are in his new film which you can get by contacting Jay at jcheel@vaxxine.com. See the letter from John's mother below! Here's a link to Figure 26 Films' web site:


Hey Oliver,

Attatched is a scan of the handwritten letter from John's mother. My producer wants me to hold off on the typed letter until the film is complete. We're going in for a sound mix this week, so i'll keep you posted.

Anyways, hopefully this will interest you. If anyone has any questions about the film, they can email me at jcheel@vaxxine.com.



Time Travelers Welcome at MIT

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts -- If John Titor was at the Time Traveler Convention last Saturday night at MIT, he kept a low profile.
Titor, the notorious internet discussion group member who claims to be from the year 2036, was among those invited to the convention, where any time traveler would have been ushered in as an honored guest.

"We were hoping Titor might show up," said Massachusetts Iinstitute of Technology gradstudent Amal Dorai, convention organizer. "Maybe he's going to make a grand entrance."

The convention, which drew more than 400 people from our present time period, was held at MIT's storied East Campus dormitory. It featured an MIT rock band, called the Hong Kong Regulars, and hilarious lectures by MIT physics professors. The profs were treated like pop stars by attendees fascinated by the possibility of traveling back in time.


Drug's Effect on Cancer Stuns Doctors

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - No one could have been more surprised than the doctors themselves. They were just hoping to relieve the symptoms of a deadly blood disorder - and ended up treating the disease itself. In nearly half of the people who took the experimental drug, the cancer became undetectable.

Specialists said Revlimid now looks like a breakthrough and the first effective treatment for many people with myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, which is even more common than leukemia.

"It may be, if not eradicating the disease, putting it into what I would call deep remission," said Dr. David Johnson, a cancer specialist at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center who is familiar with but had no role in the research.

Speeding through a black hole into a parallel universe – bending time and space can provide clues to life after death

The ultimate space travel at least as much as we can perceive, will be traveling out of this Universe into a parallel Universe though a black hole. Black holes are dense and absorb even light. According to scientists and engineers, black holes cannot stop objects traveling much faster than light. At that speed, time and space are manipulated and travel can become all on a sudden immediate.

Clues to time travel and to other Parallel Universes bending time and space - a hole in the Universe as neutron stars and black holes collide and implode

What are astonishing findings in recent days is the fact that during formation of the Black Holes with neutron stars colliding, imploding and collapsing, the gravitational radiation generated creates an opening in the space and time of our Universe. The opening is at the other end of the Black hole.

Scientists and engineers infer that artificial creation and use of radiation and gravitational energy will someday allow us to travel to other time dimensions and parallel Universes.

Reverse engineering Quantum Electrodynamics of a Black Hole to develop enormous electron radiation and the time machine

When scientists and engineers are looking for the ultimate source of energy that can dwarf our most advanced energy source known to human civilization, they look at many non-traditional phenomena. In recent days, some scientists and engineers have started looking at the phenomenon of Quantum Electrodynamics of a Black Hole to design the most powerful energy source

Quantum Electrodynamics is the extension of traditional thermodynamics that allows calculating the speed at which electrons radiate from a black hole.

Consider a virtual electron-positron pair produced just outside the event horizon of a Black Hole. Once the pair is created, the intense curvature of space-time of the black hole can put energy into the pair. Thus the pair can become non-virtual; the electron does not fall back into the hole.

The speed and amount at which the electrons can radiate away from a black hole is enormous. That is the source of huge energy.

What is fascinating is that when the positron falls into the black hole and the electron escapes, the electron crosses the event horizon traveling backwards in time. An enormous number of electrons in that situation can really simulate the effects of a time machine.

According to advanced researchers the backward and forward travel of electrons in terms of time can be controlled with the help of an algorithm.

The net result is a time machine that can make us travel back in time and then bring us back to our current time.

Quantum Black Holes
Physicists could soon be creating black holes in the laboratory
By Bernard J. Carr and Steven
B. Giddings

Ever since physicists invented particle accelerators, nearly 80 years ago, they have used them for such exotic tasks as splitting atoms, transmuting elements, producing antimatter and creating particles not previously observed in nature. With luck, though, they could soon undertake a challenge that will make those achievements seem almost pedestrian. Accelerators may produce the most profoundly mysterious objects in the universe: black holes.

When one thinks of black holes, one usually envisions massive monsters that can swallow spaceships, or even stars, whole. But the holes that might be produced at the highest-energy accelerators--perhaps as early as 2007, when the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN near Geneva starts up--are distant cousins of such astrophysical behemoths. They would be microscopic, comparable in size to elementary particles. They would not rip apart stars, reign over galaxies or pose a threat to our planet, but in some respects their properties should be even more dramatic. Because of quantum effects, they would evaporate shortly after they formed, lighting up the particle detectors like Christmas trees. In so doing, they could give clues about how space-time is woven together and whether it has unseen higher dimensions.

Stellar collapse is not the only way that holes might form, however. In the early 1970s Stephen W. Hawking of the University of Cambridge and one of us (Carr) investigated a mechanism for generating holes in the early universe. These are termed "primordial" black holes. As space expands, the average density of matter decreases; therefore, the density was much higher in the past, in particular exceeding nuclear levels within the first microsecond of the big bang. The known laws of physics allow for a matter density up to the so-called Planck value of 1097 kilograms per cubic meter--the density at which the strength of gravity becomes so strong that quantum-mechanical fluctuations should break down the fabric of spacetime. Such a density would have been enough to create black holes a mere 10–35 meter across (a dimension known as the Planck length) with a mass of 10–8 kilogram (the Planck mass).

This is the lightest possible black hole according to conventional descriptions of gravity. It is much more massive but much smaller in size than an elementary particle. Progressively heavier primordial black holes could have formed as the cosmic density fell. Any lighter than 1012 kilograms would still be smaller than a proton, but beyond this mass the holes would be as large as more familiar physical objects. Those forming during the epoch when the cosmic density matched nuclear density would have a mass comparable to the sun's and so would be macroscopic.

The production of black holes by particle accelerators is an even more exciting possibility. When it comes to producing high densities, no device outdoes accelerators such as the LHC and the Tevatron at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago. These machines accelerate subatomic particles, such as protons, to velocities exceedingly close to the speed of light. The particles then have enormous kinetic energies. At the LHC, a proton will reach an energy of roughly seven tera-electron volts (TeV). In accord with Einstein's famous relation E = mc2, this energy is equivalent to a mass of 10–23 kilogram, or 7,000 times the proton's rest mass. When two such particles collide at close range, their energy is concentrated into a tiny region of space. So one might guess that, once in a while, the colliding particles will get close enough to form a black hole.

Over the past decade, however, physicists have realized that the standard estimate of the necessary Planckian density could be too high. String theory, one of the leading contenders for a quantum theory of gravity, predicts that space has dimensions beyond the usual three. Gravity, unlike other forces, should propagate into these dimensions and, as a result, grow unexpectedly stronger at short distances. In three dimensions, the force of gravity quadruples as you halve the distance between two objects. But in nine dimensions, gravity would get 256 times as strong. This effect can be quite important if the extra dimensions of space are sufficiently large, and it has been widely investigated in the past few years [see "The Universe's Unseen Dimensions," by Nima Arkani-Hamed, Savas Dimopoulos and Georgi Dvali; Scientific American, August 2000]. There are also other configurations of extra dimensions, known as warped compactifications, that have the same gravity-magnifying effect and may be even more likely to occur if string theory is correct.

This enhanced growth of the strength of gravity means that the true energy scale at which the laws of gravity and quantum mechanics clash--and black holes can be made--could be much lower than its traditional value. Although no experimental evidence yet supports this possibility, the idea sheds light on numerous theoretical conundrums. And if it is true, the density required to create black holes could lie within the range of the LHC.

NEWS FROM 4/21/2005

April 18, 2005
But the dream has persisted. A supposed time machine ("non-working") recently sold on eBay for over $600. In 2000, Internet postings from a mysterious John Titor, who claimed to be a time-traveler from the near future, stirred up controversy that remains to this day (and paved the way for more and more supposed time-travelers whose sole goal, it would seem, was to engage in Internet discussion forums rather than change history.)


FEB 2001 - JOHN SAID: ...there are a great many "non lethal" weapon systems in development that turn out to be quite lethal. Sometimes I watch your television programs that show SWAT teams using new non-lethal weapons. They usually start out with, "In the future, the army and police will fight its enemies with new weapons systems…" When they use the word "enemy", they're talking about YOU! You don't really think the Marines are going to jump out of helicopters overseas with sticky goop, pepper spray and seizure lights, do you?


COLUMBUS, Georgia (AP) -- A man who telephoned a hot line to say he had a gun and was dreaming of killing children died after police shot him with supposedly non-lethal bean bag projectiles, officials said. Lester Zachary died Wednesday at a hospital, two days after he was shot at his home with two bean bag bullets. Zachary, 45, died of internal bleeding caused by a bullet hitting his spleen area, Muscogee County Coroner James Dunnavant said Thursday.

A bean bag bullet is intended by police as a non-lethal alternative to shooting someone with a gun, Police Chief Ricky Boren said.


But on July 17 afternoon, something went wrong. The ranger fired a "cracker shell" round that apparently ricochet off the ground and hit the bear. The animal ran across Slough Creek for about 200 yards and then lay down. The ranger watched the animal for about an hour before having to leave to respond to another crisis in the park. When rangers returned to the scene the next morning, the bear was dead from the injury.

Apr 21, 2005 — AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Netherlands has discovered its first case of Creutzfeld-Jakobs, the human form of "mad cow disease," the government said on Wednesday.
The interior ministry said in a statement a patient at a hospital in the central town of Utrecht had been diagnosed with the disease and said it had informed European authorities.


20/04/2005 - Japanese food safety authorities have ordered further testing, after two cows were diagnosed with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) during preliminary screening, Tom Armitage reports. The animals, which first tested positive earlier this month, were from Miyagi prefecture in northeast Japan and will mark Japan’s 18th and 19th cases of BSE, if final tests are confirmed in a few days’ time. According to reports in the Japanese press, tissue samples of the animals – a ten year old Holstein and an eighteen year old Japanese Black - have been sent to the National Institute of Infectious Disease in Tokyo for further screening. In February earlier this year, Japanese health officials diagnosed the first human to have contracted variant Creutzfeld Jacob’s Disease (CJD) – the human form of the fatal, brain wasting disease. Beef from infected cattle entering the food chain is believed to have caused the fatal human condition, variant CJD.


PARIS - France will step up testing goats for possible mad cow infection after an animal health agency found that more such cases may be uncovered, but no date has been set so far, the farm ministry said on Tuesday. The first case of a disease close to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), that ravaged European cattle herds and killed at least 100 people, was found in a French goat in January, prompting fears of a new crisis in the meat sector. After being asked to evaluate the risks of the disease spreading, the animal health agency AFSSA said only a limited number of cases was likely to be uncovered. However, it said non-systematic testing and the removal at slaughterhouses of materials at risk of being contaminated were insufficient to fully protect consumers.


Tuesday, 19/04/2005
A veterinary scientist and former inspector for the US Department of Agriculture says the United States is intentionally under-reporting madcow disease. Lester Friedlander, now a consumer advocate, lost his job in the Philadelphia meat industry 10 years ago after alleging unsafe practices. He claims private laboratories confirmed that some suspect cow brains were infected with mad cow disease but they were cleared when retested by government labs. Dr Friedlander thinks there has been a cover-up. "I believe there is at the highest levels because of the political and economic impact," he said.

"If we found mad cow disease we'd have to depopulate a lot of animals. With mad cow disease in the United States, it's an accident waiting to happen, that somewhere along the way we're going to find some positives and there'll be cattle from the United States, and not Britain or Canada."

FAIZABAD: Nearly 65% of the animal livestock in north-eastern Badakshan province have died after contracting a form of mad-cow disease from cattle exported from Pakistan, said the head of the agriculture and livestock department, Eng. Mohammad Hassan.

The disease has affected mainly animals in the districts of Shahr-e-Bozurg, Khiwa, Arghanshas and Wardaj. "This disease which was first discovered in Badakhshan two years ago, has been transmitted from commercial animals from Pakistan and other provinces." "We have many problems with agriculture and farming, and there is only one veterinary surgeon in Faizabad city with nobody in the districts," he said. He warned if the disease was not controlled it could spread throughout Faizabad. Jafar, a resident of Shahr-e-Bozurg talked to Pajhwok at the agriculture department. "I have 800 sheep out of which 750 are healthy so far, but 50 have died due to the epidemic," he said. He said there is no veterinary surgeon in his region to treat the animals.


When John was posting, he made a few references to the Segway. He stated it wasn't going to amount to much.

JAN 2001 - JOHN SAID: I was genuinely interested in your opinion of how "IT" was being presented and advertised. Do you feel manipulated? Do you think it's really a big deal? Do you like the way the news is dealing with it?


By Denise Winterman
BBC News Magazine

It was supposed to revolutionise transportation as we know it, so why is the Segway Human Transporter nowhere to be seen on the streets of Britain?

If you believed the hype, the world's first motorised, self-balancing scooter was going to revolutionise personal travel when it was introduced into the UK two years ago.

Segway inventor Dean Kamen wanted it to become a fixture on traffic-clogged city streets, allowing commuters to "drive" to work at the civilised speed of 12mph. Great assumptions were made. Mr Kamen said it would "be to the car what the car was to the horse and buggy".

His vision has yet to be realised. After a flurry of publicity things have gone pretty quiet and the UK's commuters are still jamming themselves into cars, trains, buses and tubes every morning.

No official sales figures are released by Segway but there are just 30 to 50 of the machines estimated to be in the country, according to its UK distributor - BAE Systems.

NEWS FROM 3/25/2005


Horatiu Nastase says his calculations show that the core of the fireball has a striking similarity to a black hole. His work has been published on the pre-print website arxiv.org and is reported in New Scientist magazine. When the gold nuclei smash into each other they are broken down into particles called quarks and glutons.

These form a ball of plasma about 300 times hotter than the surface of the Sun. This fireball, which lasts just 10 million, billion, billionths of a second, can be detected because it absorbs jets of particles produced by the beam collisions. But Nastase, of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, says there is something unusual about it. Ten times as many jets were being absorbed by the fireball as were predicted by calculations.

The Brown researcher thinks the particles are disappearing into the fireball's core and reappearing as thermal radiation, just as matter is thought to fall into a black hole and come out as "Hawking" radiation. However, even if the ball of plasma is a black hole, it is not thought to pose a threat. At these energies and distances, gravity is not the dominant force in a black hole.

FEB 2001 - JOHN SAID: The West will become very unstable which gives China the confidence to "expand." I'm assuming you are all aware that China has millions of male soldiers right now that they know will never be able to find wives. I guess you could say that Taiwan, Japan, and Korea were all "forcefully annexed" before N Day.


BEIJING (Reuters) - Thousands of Chinese smashed windows and threw rocks at the Japanese embassy and ambassador's residence in Beijing on Saturday in a protest against Japan's wartime past and its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat.

Protesters pushed their way through a paramilitary police cordon to the gates of the Japanese ambassador's residence, throwing stones and water bottles and shouting "Japanese pig come out."

Some 500 paramilitary police holding plastic shields raced into the compound and barricaded the gates. Protesters threw stones and bricks at the residence, and shouted at police, "Chinese people shouldn't protect Japanese."


ASHINGTON, April 8 - After two senior-level meetings between North Korean and Chinese leaders over the last two weeks to discuss the North's nuclear-weapons program, the Chinese have failed so far to persuade North Korea to rejoin nuclear disarmament talks, senior administration officials and diplomats said Friday.

As a result of the continuing deadlock, informal discussions have begun among the five parties to the talks on new, more aggressive strategies that could be used if and when it is decided that the talks have reached a dead end.

Officials say equation has shifted in event of a Taiwan crisis

ZHANJIANG, China When the flagship of the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet came into view on a recent Monday afternoon, a Chinese naval band onshore quickly began playing as two rows of Chinese sailors snapped into formation and workers hurriedly finished tacking down a red carpet. The command ship, the Blue Ridge, answered with music from its own band and raised a Chinese flag below Old Glory.
But the most apt symbolism in the stagecraft of the ceremonial visit came when the two navies staged a tug-of-war - evoking their emerging competition in East Asia. While the American military is consumed with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, global terrorism, and the threat of nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran, China is presenting a new and strategically different security concern to America in the western Pacific, as well as to Japan and Taiwan, Pentagon and military officials say. China, these officials say, has smartly analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of the American military and focused its growing defense spending on weapons systems that could exploit the perceived weaknesses in case the United States ever needs to respond to fighting in Taiwan.

NEWS FROM 3/25/2005


John stated that mini black holes or microsingularities powered his time machine. He also stated that they would be discovered and developed in our lifetime. Is this the beginning of the technology John spoke about that leads to time travel?


The following article was written by John G. Cramer, a physics professor at the University of Washington. The article is a combination of ideas and Q&A about the creation and manipulation of mini black holes in the laboratory. I've also included a few of the relevant statements John made about the very same subjects back in 2000 - 2001, nearly two years before the article was written. Could this be why John posted online? Was he trying to help us develop time travel or the use of mini black holes as an energy source?

The CERN LHC: A Black Hole Factory?
By John G. Cramer

The Large Hadronic Collider (LHC), which is to be the world's highest energy particle accelerator, is currently being constructed at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The machine was designed to be high enough in energy to produce a completely new type of particle, the Higgs boson, which is considered to be the missing puzzle-piece in the Standard Model of particle interactions. According to current theoretical thinking, it is the Higgs particle that gives mass to all the other particles, quarks, leptons, etc., in the current bestiary of fundamental particles. However, there are new theoretical predictions that when the new accelerator goes into operation, the LHC's proton-proton collisions may also make something even more exotic: black holes.

JOHN - FEB 2, 2001: Soon, CERN will bring their big machine on line and they will be smashing very fast and high-energy particles together. One of the more odd and potentially dangerous items produced from this increase in energy will be microsingularities a fraction of the size of an electron.

Q: Are there ideas beyond the Standard Model that would allow production of a minimum-size black hole by an accelerator?

A: Yes. New ideas suggest that gravity becomes stronger at small distances because of the effects of extra dimensions used only by gravity. In this scenario, as the effective value of G grows larger, the Planck mass drops, and the energy required to produce black holes can drop to 1 TeV, well within range of the LHC but probably out of reach for the Tevatron. Thus, the LHC may turn out to be a "black hole factory", an accelerator that makes large quantities of minimum-size black holes.

JOHN - DEC 30, 2000: I have never claimed to be a physicist or an expert on what the CERN laboratory is doing at any given moment so I feel it is pointless to argue about what they may be doing in the future or what "breakthroughs" they will or might have. My comments about the CERN lab are in reference to particle accelerators in general and other questions that have come up in the past. The major physics break through for controlled gravity distortion does happen at CERN in your future.

Q: If such mini black holes were produced, what would be seen by the LHC detectors?

A: First, if no black holes were produced, an LHC collision would make a relatively small number of high energy particles that form into back-to-back "jets" or groups of high energy particles going in the same direction. On the other hand, if a black hole was made, the particle count would increase dramatically but the energy of each particle would be much smaller. Instead of making perhaps 100 particles with kinetic energies around 100 GeV or more, a collision event that made a black hole would make thousands of lower energy particles, including many electrons, positrons, and photons with energies around 10 GeV or less. Such a dramatic in the character of an LHC proton-proton collision should be very obvious in the collision data, and should provide a "smoking gun" signal of the production of black holes.

JOHN - NOV 25, 2000: The energy stored in the singularity is used to create the distortion fields. That energy is created in a particle accelerator.

JOHN - MAR 13, 2001: However, and as I'm sure you are aware, Stephen Hawking admits that his own equations support the "possibility" that microsingularities may not totally disappear as they evaporate in a sea of virtual particles and in fact may leave behind a very stable naked singularity. I'm sure you can look that up. I suppose the difficult part is believing that we've taken advantage of it, not that it's impossible.

Q: Could such collision-produced mini black holes be "nurtured", prevented from decaying, and made larger?

A: Perhaps, but it's not obvious how that could be done. The black hole evaporation could only be suppressed by surrounding it with a medium that was even hotter than it was, so that it absorbed more radiation than it emitted. No such medium could be sustained. Even the interior of the Sun would be a billion times too cool to do the job. However, if you could immerse the black hole in such a medium, it would grow in mass and radius and cool in temperature as it absorbed mass-energy from the medium. Eventually, it might be cooled enough that it could be removed from the hot environment and become relatively stable.

JOHN - NOV 6, 2000: The mass and gravitational field of a microsingularity can then be manipulated by "injecting" electrons onto its surface. By rotating two electric microsigularities at high speed, it is possible to create and modify a local gravity sinusoid that replicates the effects of a Kerr black hole.

Q: Would a stable black hole have any uses?

A: Indeed it would. It would be an excellent mass-detector and a wonderful energy source. It could be fed mass, and some fraction of the mass-energy (E=mc2) could be recovered and used. However, as a number of SF writers have pointed out, a "tame" black hole would also represent a certain hazard, since if it were accidentally dropped, if would probably fall to the center of the Earth and devour the planet from the inside.

JOHN - NOV 7, 2000: There is thought that a singularity generator could also be used but most people are against it.

JOHN - JAN 1, 2001: The source of power for the C204 that allows it to distort and manipulate gravity comes from two microsingularities that were created, captured and cleaned at a much larger and "circular" facility. The dual event horizons of each one and their mass is manipulated by injecting electrons onto the surface of their respective ergospheres. The electricity comes from batteries. The breakthrough that will allow for this technology will occur within a year or so when CERN brings their larger facility online.

JOHN - JAN 29, 2001: I realize my claims are a bit ridiculous but my intent is not really to be believed. However, if I had an opportunity to talk to a time traveler, I might ask questions like: How exactly does the singularity sensor measure the expansion of the inner event horizon or why does the reality of multiple worlds support the religious dogma that there are no good or bad people just good and bad decisions or what were the political motivations that changed the U.S. Constitution?

Are there any problems with this theoretical scenario? I'm afraid so. The problems revolve around issues of time-reversal invariance and the arrow-of-time problem. In the everyday world we have no difficulty in distinguishing one direction of time from the other. A movie showing a dropped egg hitting the floor or a car crash looks very strange and unphysical if the film is run backwards. But on the macroscopic scale, there is supposed to be no time preference. A movie of the interaction of fundamental particles is expected to represent expected behavior, even if the movie is running backwards. This is called "time-reversal invariance" and it is an important symmetry principle of the microscopic world.

But a mini black hole would strongly violate this symmetry. A movie of a super-hot black hole emitting particles has a distinct time direction and would look strange and unexpected if the movie were run backwards. This means that particle collisions at the LHC should show dramatic violations of time reversal invariance. Moreover, since right-vs.-left handedness and matter-vs.-antimatter asymmetries cannot be expected to compensate, the more fundamental TPC symmetry principle (time-reversal plus matter-antimatter interchange plus reversal of spatial directions) will also be violated. Even at lower collision energies at accelerators like the FermiLab Tevatron, where there may not be enough collision energy to produce free black holes, sub-threshold virtual process involving black holes might be expected to produce time reversal and TCP symmetry violations, (but we note that none have been observed).

Is there any way around this problem that would permit mini black hole production at the LHC? The physics literature is silent on this issue because the time-reversal invariance aspects of black hole production in particle collisions have not yet been analyzed or discussed in detail. However, the time-reversal problem of the above scenario could be cured if the LHC produced black holes and white holes in pairs, with most of the particles emerging from the white hole feeding into the black hole. I'm not sure how such a system would evolve, but as in the black hole scenario above, it would probably evaporate into lighter particles and be observed primarily as a change in the character of the spectrum of particles emerging from an LHC collision.

JOHN - JAN 15, 2001: Actually, there are 2 singularities in the unit. The gravity field is manipulated by three factors that affect it in distinct ways. Adding electric charge to the singularities increases the diameter of the inner event horizons. Adding mass to the singularities increases the area of gravitational influence around the singularities. Rotating and positioning the polar axis of the singularities affects and alters the gravity sinusoid. The effects of the gravity produced by the unit do not have enough time to significantly alter physical objects within a reasonable distance from the outside of the sinusoid. No, things do not get smaller.

JOHN - FEB 14, 2001: By using two microsingularities in close proximity to each other, it is possible to create, manipulate and alter the Kerr fields to create a Tipler gravity sinusoid. This field can be adjusted, rotated and moved in order to simulate the movement of mass through a donut-shaped singularity and into an alternate worldline. Thus, safe time travel.

The test of these ideas will come in a few years.. When the LHC goes into operation, we may discover the Higgs boson or we may find that indeed gravity becomes a strong force. Or we may discover other things that on one has even predicted.
