A disturbing story in the March 1 issue of Pravda suggests that the U. S. Government is working on the discovery of a mysterious point over the South Pole that may be a passageway backward in time.
According to the article, some American and British scientists working in Antarctica on January 27, 1995, noticed a spinning gray fog in the sky over the pole. U. S. physicist Mariann McLein said at first they believed it to be some kind of sandstorm. But after a while they noticed that the fog did not change its form and did not move so they decided to investigate.
They sent up a weather balloon, at the end of a rope, with some equipment attached. To their surprise the balloon immediately disappeared after entering the fog, although the rope hung there, as if still attached. After a few minutes the team pulled on the rope and the balloon reappeared. When they brought it back to the ground they were surprised to find that a chronometer on the balloon displayed the date as January 27, 1965, exactly 30 years earlier.
The team repeated the experiment several times, and each time the chronometer's date changed to the earlier time. The phenomenon was reported to the White House under the name "Time Gate."
According to the story the CIA and FBI are fighting to gain control over this project, which seems to be a link to a tunnel that permits penetration into the past. Experiments have advanced to the point of actually sending people through the rift. Their safe return is an unknown.
Of course the Russians are watching all of this with great interest. The story talked about various Russian experiments with time machines and theories about the possibility of slowing or speeding up time.
Russian author Gennady Belimov published an article in which he described experiments led by Vadim Chernobrov, the inventor of a time machine in 1987. Chernobrov claims his machine can slow or speed up the course of time by tinkering with the Earth's magnetic field. His biggest success was the slowing of time for 1.5 seconds.
While all of this sounds a bit like one of Grimm's Fairy Tales, I have to give the report some level of credibility. I know that time does not seem to exist in the spiritual or astral realm outside of our three-dimensional existence on this planet. Time appears to be an invention of third dimensional reality to allow humans to keep their bearings as we proceed through the brief life spans allowed in these bodies.
One of the problems remote viewers have is acquiring time lines for future or past events that they examine. For example, a viewer might foresee a major catastrophe like a volcanic eruption, airplane crash or hurricane, but pinning down an exact moment when it will occur is extremely difficult. To deal with this problem, Aaron C. Donahue spent years developing an advanced form of viewing, which he calls the acquisition and practical application of non-historical data.
Even with his new technique, Donahue has trouble pinning down exact dates of future events. For example, he said he foresees some kind of explosive thermal event occurring at Yellowstone National Park sometime this year and thinks it might happen this spring. But he can't give us an exact date.
As an old science fiction buff, I have had years to think and read about the consequences of human travel through time. Traveling forward in time would be strange enough. And we might be able to do something like that without upsetting the balance of things.
But if we could go backwards, even under the strictest of conditions, it is possible that by a single act, we could alter the entire course of history. Simply carrying an evolved bacteria or a genetically modified virus on our shirt sleeve into the distant past might launch a world-wide epidemic that would kill millions of people, some of whom would be the thinkers, inventers and composers of some of the great human offerings of that period.
That the CIA and/or FBI are tinkering with time travel is most distressing. The covert operations they perform could take on a whole new meaning if they are ever given the opportunity to travel into the past and make a few adjustments in world events.
What is troubling is that we have no way of knowing that they aren't already doing it. For those of us in the daily stream of world events, a shift in history might wipe out thousands of people and change entire governments. But for us, the change would go into our memory of events as they happened during our lives. That good friend we went bowling with last night might disappear before the next morning and we would not notice his loss. By the time we awake, the person never existed.
In the past I have thought how time travel, if available to a few of us, would be a most useful tool for saving the looming fate of our dying world. But then what would any of us do, short of going to war with the angelic realm, to make a significant difference?
Putting this tool in the hands of an angelic-Christian driven team of government agents can only mean worse trouble than we have already have. Come to think of it, that kind of time tinkering might explain how things have become as quickly out-of-whack as they currently are.
In a little while, the researchers brought the weather balloon back to the ground with the help of a rope attached to it earlier. They were extremely surprised to see that a chronometer set in the weather balloon displayed the date of January 27, 1965, the same day 30 years ago. The experiment was repeated several times after the researchers found out the equipment was in good repair. But each time the watch was back it displayed the past time. The phenomenon was called "the time gate" and was reported to the White House.
Today investigation of the unusual phenomenon is underway. It is supposed that the whirl crater above the South Pole is a tunnel allowing to penetrate into other times. What is more, programs on launching people to other times have been started. The CIA and the FBI are fighting for gaining control over the project that may change the course of history. It is not clear when the US federal authorities will approve the experiment.
Famous Russian scientist Nikolay Kozyrev conducted an experiment to prove that moving from the future to the past was possible. He substantiated his views with the hypotheses on instant information spreading through physical characteristics of time. Nikolay Kozyrev even supposed that "time could execute the work and produce energy." An American physics theorist has arrived at a conclusion that time is what existed before existence of the world.
It is known that each of us feels a different course of time under different conditions. Once lightning hit a mountain-climber; later the man told he saw the lightning got into his arm, slowly moved along it, separated the skin from the tissues and carbonized his cells. He felt as if there were quills of thousands hedgehogs under his skin.
Russian investigator of anomalous phenomena, philosopher and author of numerous books Gennady Belimov published his article under the headline "Time Machine: First Speed On" in the newspaper On the Verge of Impossible. He described unique experiments conducted by a group of enthusiasts led by Vadim Chernobrov, the man who began creation of time machines, devices with electromagnetic pumping in 1987. Today the group of enthusiasts can slow down or speed up the course of time using special impact of the magnetic field. The biggest slowing down of time made up 1.5 seconds within an hour of the equipment's operation in labs.
In August 2001, a new model of the time machine meant for a human was set in a remote forest in Russia's Volgograd Region. While the machine only operated on car batteries and had low capacity, it still managed to change the time by three per cent; the change was registered with symmetrical crystal oscillators.
At first, the researchers spent five, ten and twenty minutes in the operating machine; the longest stay lasted for half an hour. Vadim Chernobrov said that the people felt as if they moved to a different world; they felt life here and "there" at the same time as if some space was unfolding. "I cannot define the unusual feelings that we experienced at such moments."
Neither TV nor radio companies reported the astonishing fact; Gennady Belimov says the Russian president was not informed of the experiment. However, he tells that already under Stalin there was a Research Institute of the Parallel World. Results of experiments conducted by Academicians Kurchatov and Ioffe can be now found in the archives. In 1952, head of the Soviet secret police organization Lavrenty Beria initiated a case against researchers participating in the experiments, as a result of which 18 professors were executed by shooting and 59 candidates and doctors of physical sciences were sent to camps. The Institute recommenced its activity under Khruschev. But an experimental stand with eight leading researchers disappeared in 1961, and buildings close to the one where experiments were conducted were ruined. After that, the Communist Party political bureau and the Council of Ministers decided to suspend researchers of the Institute for an uncertain period.
The program was resumed in 1987 when the Institute already functioned on the territory of the Soviet Union. A tragedy occurred on August 30, 1989: an extremely strong explosion sounded at the Institute's branch office on the Anjou islands. The explosion destroyed not only the experimental module of 780 tons but also the archipelago itself that covered the area of 2 square kilometers. According to one of the versions of the tragedy, the module with three experimenters collided with a large object, probably an asteroid, in the parallel world or heading toward the parallel world. Having lost its propulsion system, the module probably remained in the parallel world.
The last record made in the framework of the experiment and kept at the Institute archives says: "We are dying but keep on conducting the experiment. It is very dark here; we see all objects become double, our hands and legs are transparent, we can see veins and bones through the skin. The oxygen supply will be enough for 43 hours, the life support system is seriously damaged. Our best regards to the families and friends!" Then the transmission suddenly stopped.
Something happens to the Simpson's toaster, such that every time a slice of bread goes thru it, they go back in time. Homer happens to swat a prehistoric flea, comes back, and then there is no such thing as doughnuts. So, Homer does toast again, goes back, and whacks something, then returns to find he got his doughnuts back, but something else goes awry... and so on.
Why would a weather balloon have such a chronometer on it? Also, if the chronometer went back thirty years, wouldn't the whole gizmo disappear if it weren't at least 30 years old?
I think a far simpler explanation is the aliens inside the vortex manually turned back the chronometer.
Whoa...reading along just fine when my foot slipped on this one and I woke up in Happy Land.
The BBC is in talks to resurrect the Daleks on its new Doctor Who series, the BBC reported. The fan-favorite villains have to clear copyright problems between the BBC and the estate of late SF writer Terry Nation, who created the Daleks, the BBC said.
"We are negotiating to feature the Daleks in the new series, but no deal has yet been made," a spokeswoman for the network said.
Meanwhile, the spokeswoman denied that any actors had been cast to play the new Doctor Who and his assistant, Rose. Filming for the new series is due to begin in Cardiff this spring, for transmission on BBC One in early 2005.
Actors Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Richard E. Grant and comedians Alan Davies and Eddie Izzard have been linked to the new Doctor Who role, the BBC reported.

NEW YORK -- Federal investigators have arrested an enigmatic Wall Street wiz on insider-trading charges -- and incredibly, he claims to be a time-traveler from the year 2256!
Sources at the Security and Exchange Commission confirm that 44-year-old Andrew Carlssin offered the bizarre explanation for his uncanny success in the stock market after being led off in handcuffs on January 28.
"We don't believe this guy's story -- he's either a lunatic or a pathological liar," says an SEC insider.
"But the fact is, with an initial investment of only $800, in two weeks' time he had a portfolio valued at over $350 million. Every trade he made capitalized on unexpected business developments, which simply can't be pure luck.
"The only way he could pull it off is with illegal inside information. He's going to sit in a jail cell on Rikers Island until he agrees to give up his sources."
Fog! *slap* Of course! I should have thought of that!
All this time we thought is was an ozone hole!
Nah. Too much Wodka.
Probably for the same reason that all bombs in movies or in TV shows have large digital displays counting down the time until the bomb is set to explode. (And of course it's impossible to disarm a bomb until the digital display reaches 2, 1 or 0 seconds.)
I mean, PULEEEZE. Everyone knows that all weather balloons have to contain chronometers that automatically adjust themselves to the current time.
How common are sandstorms over the south pole?
According to Bankrate.com, Money market funds are currently yielding 1.36%. 252 years of 1.36% yields a factor of 30.087, which would turn your $800 into $24,069.86.
Now, you may say to yourself that interest rates probably wouldn't stay at 1.36%, but would instead probably average somewhere around 4%. 1.04^252 = 19,606.56, which would turn your $800 into $15.685 million.
Of course, if you went 252 years in the future, you couldn't just get dollars and bring them back now, as they'd probably be different looking by then. Instead, you would have to go to an antique store, if they existed, and buy old dollar bills from the present. How much would old coins and dollars cost? Probably 20:1, so you'd have less than a million after all that, and you'd also have to assume no escheating law, and no taxes. But Social Security will be broke by then unless they raise taxes a lot.
Oh no! Anything but that!
Geez, if Bush went back in time and rigged this election, then he is pretty damned incompetent. If you're going to rig an election, don't rig it by 537 votes.
