are your memories of 2036?
remember 2036 very clearly. It is difficult to describe 2036
in detail without spending a great deal of time explaining
why things are so different.
2036, I live in central Florida with my family and I'm currently
stationed at an Army base in Tampa. A world war in 2015 killed
nearly three billion people. The people that survived grew
closer together. Life is centered on the family and then the
community. I cannot imagine living even a few hundred miles
away from my parents.
is no large industrial complex creating masses of useless
food and recreational items. Food and livestock is grown and
sold locally. People spend much more time reading and talking
together face to face. Religion is taken seriously and everyone
can multiply and divide in their heads.
is our worldline different from this one?
For starters, the fact
that I'm here makes it different. I've also noticed little
things like news events that happen at different times, football
games won by other teams, things like that.
would guess the temporal divergence between this world line
and my original is about 1 or 2 percent. Of course, the longer
I am here, the larger that divergence becomes from my point
you drawn back to your worldline of origin for any reason?
Is instability a problem
not sure what you mean by stable. If you mean mentally, there
are many things that bother me here but being with my parents
right now is important to me. Physically, the only thing really
wrong is the number of colds I get.
you able to return to your home?
people know where you are? Can you communicate with your home?
No. They do not know where I
am and I cannot communicate with them. Interesting idea though.
From their point of view, I will return almost exactly at
the same moment I left. From their viewpoint, I will only
have aged more than expected.
do not rewrite history. I can only affect what happens here
just as easily as you can. Why do people in this time period
worry so much about time traveler's destroying their world
line when they have no problem doing it themselves every day?
goal is not to be believed. Most
people do not take news of the war very well but I find that
everyone believes it's inevitable. Even in your own history,
are not great inventions and discoveries made during a time
of war in your effort to kill and maim in new and more efficient
I do not work for GE or any other company. Are "stock
tips" really the first thing you want to know about in
the future? As a representative of your time period, do you
realize what that says about you? You should probably know
that this time is not remembered for its selflessness, charity
or ability to work together.
would I want to talk to you? Why don't you believe you have
something interesting or worthwhile to say to someone in the
No, the ice caps are not melting
any faster than they are now. There is also far less smog
and industrial waste in 2036.
asked about the North Polar ice pack. I never said the environment
wasn't a problem. Doesn't water expand when it freezes? If
the polar ice cap melted, wouldn't sea level go down? I don't
know if there's enough ice for this to make a difference and
I'm not an expert on global warming.
I realize people become hostile. I don't expect anyone to
believe me and I have nothing to sell. I take no offense by
it. Just out of curiosity, if you were a time traveler, what
do you think it would take to get people to believe you?
suppose we could agree that no particular era in history is
famous for its development of humanity but just once I would
like to hear questions like, "What is family life like
in the future? How does society deal with poverty? Is AIDS,
abortion and drug use still a problem?"
don't I give you a stock tip? The money you make would dilute
the intelligence and forethought that a smart person had in
picking the stock all by themselves. If I told you how to
get rich, I would be taking money from them and giving it
am not aware of any physical change to my DNA or "aura".
I do however seem to be more susceptible to colds.
you will remember me if you want to. Worldlines do not change
that way and I will only become an insignificant part of your
I believe in Jesus Christ and we pray to God in churches.
There are some differences you may be interested in. Religion
is a major part of people's life in 2036. Pain and change
tend to bring people together and closer to God. However,
religion is far more personal than it is now. There are no
huge, centralized religions and people talk openly about their
might also interest you to know that the day of worship is
Saturday, the day God meant to be the Sabbath and the 10 commandments
have been restored to the "10" that God gave us.
is much more rural in the future but "high" technology
is used to communicate and travel. People raise a great deal
of their own food and do more "farm" work. Yes,
compared to now, we do work long hours. After the war, my
father made a living selling oranges up and down the West
coast of Florida. My closest friend raises horses and another
works for a company
that maintains "wireless" Internet nodes.
has changed so much over my lifetime that it's hard to pin
down a "normal" day. When I was 13, I was a soldier.
As a teenager, I helped my dad haul cargo. I went to college
when I was 31 and I was recruited to "time travel"
shortly after that. Again, I suppose an average day in 2036
is like an average day on the farm.
there is a post office. The Internet is still alive and well
in the future. People spend more time talking because life
is more centered on the community. I've noticed the same type
of effect here when the power goes off. People tend to come
out of their homes and actually spend time with their neighbors.
There is a lot more personal trust and less paranoia.
I'm with my parents, I live in a community made up of "tree
houses" on a large river in Florida. The river floods
sometimes and we have access to the Gulf. Most of our neighbors
make a living off the sea or in moving cargo by boat.
new information there (on UFOs and aliens). I find that an
interesting subject myself. Personally, I think "UFOs"
might be time travelers with very sophisticated distortion
units. But that might be a bit wacky.
of the biggest reasons why food production is localized is
because the environment is affected with disease and radiation.
We are making huge strides in getting it cleaned up. Water
is produced on a community level and we do eat meat that we
genetic engineering is used but it's like any other technology.
It can be good and bad. One thing we did not do was create
more hybrid seeds. What are people thinking?
am a Christian Agnostic (HOST: Did John mean Gnostic?).
I do not believe faith alone is enough to get us back to God.
I'm not sure what happens when we die but I'm pretty sure
it's not a walk in the park.
are working on it (HOST: space travel).
greatest joy is sailing. For fun, I enjoy swimming, playing
cards, reading, playing games on the net and talking with
people who live in other countries. As a community, we celebrate
much more and have bon fires and dances. My hobby is sorting
through old magazines and videos of life before the war.
the war, early new communities gathered around the current
Universities. That's where the libraries were. I went to school
at Fort UF, which is now called the University of Florida.
Not too much is different except the military is large part
of people's life and we spend a great deal of time in the
fields and farms at the "University" or Fort.
of my memories growing up are not fond. Life was very hard.
Simple things make me happy like hugging my mother and father.
Yes, we have cameras. More digital. Film is used like painting
is today. No hologram camera though.
we have phones but the service is through the web. Most power
generation is localized. It amazes me how much power is wasted
now. Yes, solar is big. There is thought that a singularity
generator could also be used but most people are against it.
elderly are highly revered and looked after on a community
level. So are orphans. There is always something people can
do now matter what. The idea of avoiding work is looked down
on. Everyone pulls together to keep the COMMUNITY strong.
are more common in the future and flashy colors are less common.
Dress is much more functional and we "dress up"
whenever we get a chance. I have noticed that no one in this
time dresses for occasions even when they have the clothes.
Why do people wear shorts to church?
do not spend nearly the amount of time on our hair as people
do now. Women like to wear their hair longer and men have
it much shorter. Both sexes shave it all off when they're
in active military service.
less medical treatment in the future even though It's more
advanced. People die when they now its time to die. No lasers.
Genetic medicine and cloning organs are the obvious new techs
in the future.
Constitution was changed after the war. We have 5 presidents
that are voted in and out on different term periods. The vice
president is the president of the senate and they are voted
have cars, just not a whole bunch of them. There is public
transportation from city to city.
I could bring some material thing back to your time from 2036,
it would be a copy of the new US Constitution.
you explain what the purpose of time travel is on your worldline?
In 2036, a great deal of effort
is going into "repairing" our environment. I was
sent to 1975 to get a computer system and take it back to
2036. Time travel is not a secret in 2036 and I expect it
will become more common.
is time travel used?
Right now, its used to get information
or "items" that would be helpful in getting a post
WWIII world back to a normal condition. There are 7 other
time travelers in my unit.
do time travelers go the most?
Right now, most of our practical missions
are from 1960 to 1980. There is a great deal of research into
later and future periods but the farther you go, the lower
the divergence confidence of the world line.
cancer or AIDS been cured yet?
Aids, no. Cancer, some progress.
would you say to any world leaders who might be reading this
Revel in your confidence today because
you will not win tomorrow.
you spoke about the patch you wear on your uniform. You said
the spirals represented two paths. One was safe and the other
lead to God. What does that mean?
The safe way is the one calculated
to take you in time where you want to go, the other path will
take you to God (death). Both are equally accepted and anticipated
before each trip.
is music like in 2036?
Most of the same music you enjoy is available
on archive. However the days of mega-stars playing multiple
track studio produced music and lip-synching on a huge stage
are pretty much isolated to your time period. Like everything
else, music is much less centralized. The general trend is
away from "computer generated" music and more toward
real people playing real instruments. Music is much more of
a personal experience. More people know how to read music
and play together in small groups.
are the social prejudices in 2036?
Yes there are. However, as odd as it may
sound, it serves a useful purpose in my time. First, you must
realize that your experiences with "prejudice" and
mine are different. I would characterize the intolerance you
have here as a result of ignorance and fear. I have observed
that people with unfounded and irrational fears about their
fellow man in this time have the luxury of not having their
the war, much of the prejudice you have now was swept away
by simple necessity. People had to work and fight together
just to survive. This has a way of opening a person's eyes
as to the value of fellow human beings.
difference does the color of a man's skin make when you are
both fighting against the same enemy to survive or find water
or grow food? On my world line, if a man doesn't't pull his
weight in the community, then we feel prejudice towards him
as a burden to us. This feeling of shame he experiences then
makes him realize his responsibilities.
is the health care like in 2036?
You would probably not like it at all.
I would compare it to what you see in Western movies. We do
have hospitals but there are more family doctors and house
calls as compared to what you are used to. There is no real
organized health care. If you get a serious disease, you die.
This however has had a tendency to strengthen the general
genetic pool. Doctors are more concerned about things like
broken legs, snakebites and delivering healthy babies.
is the entertainment industry like in 2036?
Again, entertainment is less centralized.
There are "movies" and "TV" but everything
is distributed over the net and more people produce their
it like to start from nothing and work your way up in 2036?
Very easy. If you can work with your hands
and get along with other people, you will always find work.
you travel in time to escape your original worldline? Would
you be looked down on for that?
From a physical standpoint, I suppose
that would work if you were trying to escape a natural disaster.
But you must consider that trying to "escape" by
time traveling has it's own problems. I'm not exactly sure
what you mean by being looked down on.
there some sort of new world government in place by 2011?
On my world line in 2011, the United States
is in the middle of a civil war that has dramatic effects
on most of the other Western governments.
you first started posting online, did anyone believe you?
I don't know if anyone believes me now.
But you must realize that I don't expect anyone to believe
me or does it affect me one way or the other. I enjoy these
conversations too. What would you expect a time traveler to
say or do in your time?
far have computers and software progressed in 2036?
Good question! I would say the biggest
difference is in the reliability of the hardware and software.
It absolutely amazes me how willing people are here to accept
computer and software failures on such a regular basis. I
was very surprised to see how prolific it is. You can look
forward to very stringent manufacturing parameters and programming
discipline. Think back to the early days of the computer and
how much work and cleverness it took to fit those programs
into such small areas of memory. Has more and cheaper memory
brought better programs or just more programs?
far as technical specifics, I'm afraid I cannot go into too
much detail. However, I will tell you that processor speed
and memory size take dramatic leaps forward.
won the Super Bowl in 2001?
I do not answer questions like this. Although
I don't really know the motivation for the question.I can
guess. If a time traveler had knowledge of your future, and
you could only ask one question, would this be it? Besides,
can you tell me if it rained in New York on June 4th 1932?
You are from their future so should you know that?
type of money do you use in 2036?
Its not very different than it is now.
Yes, we have money and credit cards. However, like everything
else, the monetary system is decentralized. Banking is based
mostly around the community structure. There are no multinational
banking or computerized economic systems. There are also no
radio location systems still used on livestock?
Some of the larger farm communities use
electronic markers and fences. I am not a farmer so I don't
have very many details about that.
the GPS system still in use in 2036?
Oh yes! In fact, the unit I have with
me works here. I'm not sure why that surprises me. There are
also a great many communications and Internet satellite systems.
you still have an American flag? What does it look like in
Yes, we still have the flag. There is a
debate about changing it from 50 stars to 5.
any of the states have new names?
Not that I can think of... No major cities
anyway. I am aware that some smaller towns changed their names
after the war and most universities have the word "fort"
before them on my world line.
it still safe to fish in 2036?
Yes, we can fish. There are some areas
that are still too dangerous to spend a lot of time in so
we can't fish in those areas.
there public transportation in 2036?
A high-speed train system connects the
larger cities. Roads are still used for cars and many people
ride horses and bikes.
music and books do you enjoy? Do you play an instrument?
I read a great deal of history. I like
piano classics and some older rock and roll. (why did that
type of music go so far down hill?) No, I don't play any instruments
you taking pictures and video?
is your favorite food?
It's very hard for me to find food here.
It all scares the Hell out of me. I've found a couple of local
farms where I am reasonably sure the raw food is safe and
my mother started a garden for me.
medical advances in 2036 have anything to do with genetics?
Again, I'm no expert. I believe there is
a great deal of progress in treating the cancer cells with
modified viruses. So I guess the answer is yes.
question involved details on natural disasters and temperatures
That's one area I've decided not
to talk about, sorry. The average temperature worldwide is
a bit cooler.
time travel discussed on the web in 2036? Do you recognize
any web sites now from the future?
Time travel is a major point of
social discussion. I'll have to check when I get back. Most
of the larger servers that were in the major cities were lost
or destroyed. I'll try to bring a copy back with me. Perhaps
you can check that in your 2036.
anything happen in the year 2012? I've heard stories about
the world ending.
In my 2012, I was 14 years old spending
most of my time living, running and hiding in the woods and
rivers of central Florida. The civil war was in its 7th year
and the world war was three years away. Yes, there are unusual
events in 2012 but they do not cause the world to end. Unfortunately,
I have decided not to discuss events that you or I can do
anything about. It is important that they be a surprise. Perhaps
you are familiar with the story of the Red Sea and the Egyptians?
question lists a number of paranormal conspiracy theories
and then asks about weather control in the year 2036.
I must admit I am unfamiliar with
most of what you have asked here. I am aware of the Harp system
but I don't know how they would control weather with it.
describe any details you can about the education system in
The education system has been through
many changes. School in 2036 is no longer a political indoctrination
system and students "learn how to learn". Since
community activity varies from place to place, the emphasis
on basic reading, math and language is augmented with skills
particular to the community. One school may emphasis farming
while another teaches woodworking. Having children is a bit
different and less common in 2036. A typical school day involves
a setting very much like it was 100 years ago with smaller
classes and few administrators to teachers. Other areas of
study that are less common now are history, citizenship and
you could post a picture of money used in the future, that
would be more impressive than your time machine pictures.
I am disappointed that you feel
I am trying to impress you. Why would I bring money from 2036
with me? Besides, isn't that something that could easily be
faked? Now if I told you I was your cousin's brother and I
knew about that scare on your left leg that would convince
do you think all the water came from in the great flood stories?
I believe the explanation for the
"great flood" stories originate with the changes
that occurred near the Mediterranean at the end of the last
ice age. Even on this worldline, there is a great deal of
evidence to support the fact that sea levels did change radically
in isolated areas worldwide.
also heard someplace that if the ice mass on Antarctica melted
today, sea level worldwide would rise about 100 feet. I'm
not exactly sure that's true but still. Mt. Everest might
be a bit of a stretch.
do however agree with you that there are no physical paradoxes
but for the opposite reasoning.
2036, community life is a bit different. People are valued
and judged based on their contribution and worth. Work is
organized around the family and the value of that work is
assessed inside of the community. Most communities range in
size from 1000 to 4000 people. If a family wanted to move
from one community to another or if a son or daughter wanted
to move to another community, they must apply and be interviewed
by the community
leadership council. During this process, the family or individual
is evaluated as to whether or not the work or skill they have
is required or necessary to that individual community. Once
accepted, the family or individual is expected to uphold their
end of the work and support the
community. If they don't, the community stops supporting them
and they are forced to change their attitude or move away
from the community.
family work we did was picking, sorting and shipping oranges
by sailboat up and down the coast of Florida. We were expected
to produce a certain amount for the community and a certain
amount for other communities as agreed to by our CLC. In exchange,
we received power, water, a certain amount of food and other
necessities that were produced inside our
see this message board as a small community and I have no
other way to value the contributions of others on it other
than what my past experiences tell me. I have tried to answer
as many questions as I can without being annoying, repetitive
or inappropriate, and for some of you, entertaining. Under
these conditions, I have decided to seek guidance from all
of you, the other members of this community, as to whether
or not my postings are of any
value to the direction of these discussions. If they are getting
distracting or repetitive, I will stop and continue to enjoy
reading your thoughts and ideas.
receives the Nobel Prize for time travel? Since you claim
no two worldlines are the same, this information could not
There are a great many people involved
with the discovery of time travel. Just as I will not give
"stock tips", I will not divulge their names as
that may impact their lives now.
would happen if you gave us technical information that's discovered
in a year or so?
If I had any and I published them,
I'm sure they may have a large impact. Unfortunately, I don't
have any with me. Even if I did, I'm sure they would be scrutinized.
Again we get back to the same question. If you were a time
traveler, what would you do to establish your credibility?
happens to (name of person asking question)? Am I involved
in Time Travel? What of the (armed) resistance?
I have no idea what happens to you
in your future. There was a resistance on my worldline but
their goal was to maintain power and control over other people.
We killed most of them by 2020.
there still books in 2036?
Yes, books are still published.
do they look for when choosing someone for a mission?
Depending on the mission, time travelers
are usually chosen for a particular mission based on their
ability to gain the cooperation of someone related to the
goal on the target worldline. In my case, my grandfather was
directly involved with the building and programming of the
a time traveler is bad and commits murder or goes crazy, is
there anyway they can be recalled?
There is a difference of philosophy
between us that should be clarified. Since I believe that
all possible outcomes and events are possible, probable and
certain, it is impossible to assign "goodness" or
"badness" to a person or situation.
some other worldline, I am an insane time traveler causing
destruction and death while (name of forum member who confronts
John on a regular basis) chases me with his band of devoted
followers. However, on this one, I am not. Since both events
are certain, their value is neutral.
can only assign goodness and badness to the events and experiences
you have direct control over or witness. Only actions are
good and bad, not people or things. I suppose if I was a psychotic
killer, I could accomplish my mission, avoid capture and still
return to my worldline of origin without penalty. There would
be no way for them to know what happened. However, I believe
that action is wrong and I would be accountable to my God.
do you know our worldline and yours will follow the same path?
This worldline and my own are almost
don't you give us more detailed information about the future
so we won't be so skeptical?
I think skepticism is a good thing
and no one should lose it.
could still give us details about the future that wouldn't
harm anyone and still add to your credibility.
Again, I do not seek to add to my
credibility. There is no point to it. Actually, by providing
information that was useful, I would be adding to your collective
fear that I am real. In that case, this cycle we are in concerning
"truth" only spirals and gets worse.
can't you name the five presidents you have in your time?
Over the past few postings, I have tried
to describe the limits of what I will talk about and why.
Here is a short recap list. In future postings, I will place
the following number next to each question as to why I will
not discuss it.
I will not disclose any information that will cause someone
to personally gain by its knowledge. This means no stock or
I will not disclose any detailed information that would allow
someone to avoid death by probability. This means no earthquake
or bombing information.
I will not disclose any information that may compromise any
future actions by individual people or threaten their family
my worldline, we are no longer afraid of the "NWO".
Are you afraid of Nazis?
reason the job of President was split into an office of 5
has 4 main reasons. With 5 (presidents), foreign policy is
more consistent, power shifting between parties has less of
an impact on the overall government, individual strengths
between presidents add to the strength of the overall office,
and one president is elected for each major area in the United
is the extent of Presidential power in 2036?
The office of President is far more diluted
and decentralized than it is here. The powers of the national
government are more defined and reside more at the county
and state level.
is the new government like in 2036 compared to the current
I think the new government is good.
However, since the concept of nationally subsidized welfare
is gone, most people here may not appreciate it.
is the new US capitol?
The new US capitol is in Omaha Nebraska.
do the 5 presidents take power?
The voting for individual candidates is
on a rotating schedule.
are the other time traveler's destinations, and missions?
I am not aware of the details of other
missions. Of the seven, three had already left before I did.
I suspect they are on similar missions.
it possible to send a message through time?
Unless the information physically travels
with the person; none that I'm aware of.
you're from the future, than you should know what happens
to (personal names of people on forum)? Am I involved in time
This is the only question I found
from your postings that you could be referring to. Again,
I have no knowledge of you in any possible future nor would
I comment on it if I did. As far as the photograph of me in
a uniform, I'm not sure what that would prove even if I had
future seems to be fixated on killing people. Isn't there
a criminal justice system or do you just enjoy killing people?
Perhaps you could take the dialogue
in question and post it with your question. However, if I
understand you, you're asking about death on my worldline.
Yes, it is more a part of our lives than it is yours (at least
for now) and capitol punishment is a reality. Although the
documents posted were printed from a computer printer, is
it really that hard to believe that manual typing is just
a bit more common in thirty years? After the war, many things
like manual printing machines, bicycles, sailboats and hand
tools were valued a great deal. I have noticed more people
in California are installing wood burning stoves.
the Olympics still being played in the future?
As a result of the many conflicts, no,
there were no official Olympics after 2004. However, it appears
they may be revived in 2040.
sort of future do you imagine after 2036? Will we colonize
the solar system?
Keep in mind that not all humans
were destroyed but we were all affected. There is an effort
going into colonizing space because it is believed that the
problems of overpopulation were a large cause of the war.
Personally, my generation sees itself as having a duty to
try and repair the mess our fathers handed to us. When we
were young, most of us had a small taste of the world you
live in now and our only dream is to clean it up and give
it back to those still able to have children.
Industrialized mass production does not produce the uncountable
tonnage of useless consumer items so gleefully absorbed by
your society. I would estimate there are about 10 units like
mine (C204) and twenty larger units (C206). The main difference
is the sensitivity and number of the main Cesium clocks. I
would estimate that some sort of public time travel will be
common around 2045.
I'm not aware of any other time traveler's "here"
now. But if they are here, I'm sure they're pouring over sports
history books so they can go back in time another week and
start a friendly conversation on the web.
The "Mad Cow" story here is yet to begin but don't
worry, the fruited gelatin deserts are safe.
I'm glad to see it's so easy for to dismiss the Middle East.
Yes, I suppose it is a no brainer but pretty soon it will
be a "no arrmer" and a "no legger".
winners of historical sports betting events are not high on
the priority list of people in 2036. As a thought experiment,
if I did tell you who the winning horse was and you killed
it before the final race, would that make me a liar or would
it support my statement that our worldlines are about 2% different?
Do you know who won that race 30 years ago?
you could change one thing about your government right now,
what would it be?
The United States is still a representative
republic in 2036 but it was touch and go for a while. After
the war, the U.S. had divided into 5 general areas based on
their economic and defensive strengths. Many people blamed
the government organization for the war and the last Constitutional
Congress was held in 2020 to officially scrap the Constitution
and start over. Fortunately, this exercise in anger pointed
out how hard it was to come up with anything better. It was
decided the document wasn't at fault. As a result, there have
been a few small changes to the Constitution and the executive
branch but you would easily recognize it. The average citizen
is more educated about the Constitution and aware of the rights
and responsibilities it gives them. Federal power has been
decentralized and the focus of daily politics is in the state
senates. Federal law has also been streamlined but much harder
to change or make additions to.
people who sign my paycheck told me why we needed a 5100 and
sent me off to get one. I was not in a position to make alternate
suggestions. As I recall, isn't the Cray a rather large system?
We need something portable. The 5100 isn't required for its
reliability, its needed to translate between APL, UNIX and
a few obscure IBM mainframe languages. The fishing is great
and you're more than welcome to join us but the "me"
here is only three. I'll have to tell him your coming.
you give us some personal stories of your past?
I was born in 1998 so I do share some childhood
memories with all of you. I remember going to Disney World
at Christmas and I remember going to the beach in Daytona.
When the civil "conflict" started and got worse,
people generally decided to either stay in the cities and
lose most of their civil rights under the guise of security
or leave the cities for more isolated and
rural areas. Our home was searched once and the neighbor across
the street was arrested for some unknown reason. That convinced
my father to leave the city.
the age of 8 to 12, we lived away from the cities and spent
most of our time in a farm community with other families avoiding
conflict with the federal police and National Guard. By that
time, it was pretty clear that we were not going back to what
we had and the division between the "cities" and
the "country" was well defined. My father made a
living by putting together 12-volt electrical systems and
sailing "commodities" up and down the coast of Florida.
I spent most of my time helping him.
open fighting was common by then and I joined a shotgun infantry
unit in 2011. I served with the "Fighting Diamondbacks"
for about 4 years. (Hearing in my right ear isn't as good
as I would like it). The civil war ended in 2015 when Russia
attacked the U.S. cities (our enemy), China and Europe. As
unusual and bad as my childhood might seem, I wouldn't trade
it for anything.
is not a pleasant place to be in 2036 although I would characterize
it as recovering.
music you enjoy now is quite popular and available it's just
not produced in anywhere near the same amount. There is a
revival of "local" and classical music. Many people
have learned to play their own. I personally enjoy Big Band,
some Classical and interesting lyrical pieces from the 1970s
we still have football and you will easily recognize it in
there are significant advances in computer science. It's interesting
how easy it is to be fixated on the "machine" itself
without any curiosity about many of the support systems. This
is not really big news but if / then is out and if /then /maybe
I am with the "me" on this worldline and he is three
now. I find that fact to be rather hard for people to get
along with so I don't bring it up directly. This is the second
time I have "met myself".
"machine" is owned by the military. I am part of
a unit stationed in Tampa Florida. The real energy is in creating
the machine, not operating it. It's interesting you should
bring up the divergence percentage. You may find it entertainingly
interesting to know that the divergence can be more accurate
with more sensitive gravity sensors and clocks. The C206 uses
6 Cesium clocks and an active method of timing the changes
in the atom. We time travel to solve problems. A great deal
of effort is going into repairing the environment and infrastructure.
Who wins the (sporting event) for the next 20 years?
I don't know. Even if I did, you could stop
the horse(s)anyway and make it untrue.
Who will be elected president for the next 20 years?
Please see number 2.
Will there still be (popular
motorcycle) around when you are born?
I was born in 1998.
Please tell me the price of
gold for the last 20 years.
I don't understand the importance of this type
of information. Please tell me your opinion why this is interesting
and worth remembering for 30 years.
Will it still be lawful for
me to own handguns?
I thought owning a handgun was legal in the
United States? Yes, being familiar with firearms (along with
the other responsibilities of the Constitution) becomes an
important part of people's lives in thirty years.
I guess you could say that. Taiwan,
Japan and Korea were all "forcefully annexed" before
don't remember a great deal about media coverage during the
civil conflicts. I would probably characterize it the same
way you see coverage of Waco, Ruby Ridge and Elian Gonzalez.
my viewpoint, yes, this is an alternate timeline. From your
is sort of interesting in what is unknown. After the war,
they were not very cooperative or friendly (can't blame them
really). It is known they did repulse a Chinese invasion and
most of their cities were hit. They have a trading relationship
with the U.S. but I would characterize them as reclusive and
reading the questions, I want to paint a picture that may
help with the general theme of our collective experience in
2036. The war had very profound affects on people and how
they relate to each other. As individuals, almost everyone
in 2036 is very familiar with death. We all have stories of
loved ones that have died from disease, war or acts of inhumanity.
Most of us have even taken part in dishing the same thing
out to the other side. As a result, we have become far more
compassionate to the ones we love but mush less forgiving
to those who don't pull their weight. We are more accepting
of other's differences in our community because we depend
on them to survive. We are also more conservative with our
resources and closer to God because for a period, life on
Earth was Hell.
other major difference is in the concept of good and evil.
With multiple worlds come multiple decisions and outcomes.
For every good act, there is an equal and possible bad act
on another worldline. Taken to the extreme, this must mean
that in God's eyes, there is no total good and total bad in
the superverse. It balances itself out to infinity. I believe
we are judged on the decisions we make as individuals and
the good/evil I see on my worldline is an illusion that has
no worth to God. My reaction to it is what's important to
God. Although this may seem rather heartless, it does allow
me to see past the evil that people do and acknowledge the
core of potential goodness inside them.
We do not live in a racist society but definitely a prejudice
one. Everyone carries their own water.
Our government looks very much like yours. It is a representative
My definition of a patriot is anyone who defends the Constitution
against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Religion has become far less centralized. Extremes tend to
bring you closer to God so I would characterize religion and
spirituality as a much more of a personal institution.
It's difficult to define the most predominant religion. Christianity
has fragmented into many groups and people with different
beliefs speak mush more openly with others who have different
outlooks and opinions. I would imagine there are large groups
of Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims but I have not come across
No, Jesus did not come back. At least not that I'm aware of.
If or when Jesus returns, do you think he'll be a lamb or
No mission to Mars but we are working on it. There is a group
working on the idea of gravity displacement to get into space
but the calculations and error rate are very large obstacles
We don't know what's on Mars yet.
We're not on the moon yet either. A great deal of technical
effort is going into cleaning the planet up.
I'm not aware of any "mind control" devices being
used on you now. However, 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?
I'm not familiar with the term Psionics. I'll look it up and
see if we just have another word for it.
Yes, Europe is a mess.
Yes, I think the New World Order idea tried to establish itself.
I would consider them the combination of the old U.S. federal
system, Europe, Canada and Australia.
When you say "teleportation", I assume you mean
public transportation. Yes, we have a basic high-speed system.
I don't know if the government created AIDS. I tend to think
yes but controlling it escaped them as it mutated. You can't
have conspiracy to limit the population with a disease without
Yes, homosexuals are in the army. You tend to look past the
individual differences of people when their job is to protect
Yes, there are "gay" people in 2036.
I am a white male.
Yes, there is an entertainment industry. Again, it is very
decentralized. The technology to express yourself with video
is so readily available that many people do it all by themselves
or in small groups. Much of the distribution is over the web.
I would compare it theater here.
I don't know what you mean by VR?
The average lifespan is about 60 but I expect that will improve
as we get things cleaned up.
Yes, paper money is still widely used.
The 21st century has awhile to go but the most significant
person in my opinion is the farmer-general who led us to victory.
Even for you, Tesla technology can be found in appliances,
motors and generators. I would have to say we have come a
long way on Tesla's foundation but we don't have electricity
rays that cause earthquakes.
Yes, we have the death penalty. We also have public punishment.
The most common crime is theft.
I don't understand what you mean by "race mixing".
Cloning is not common. However, altering the sperm and egg
cell are common. It is very difficult to have children in
2036 for environmental reasons.
It's hard to say what the exact racial make up of the U.S.
is. I would say it's probably the same minus 130 million people
No, there is no segregation.
The education system is very similar to yours but the organization
and implementation is controlled on a community and county
level. Various communities also specialize in certain disciplines.
My comments on equal rights and "women's roles"
could be quite lengthy and controversial. I wish to discuss
that separately. However, women do fight in the military just
as the men do but their role on the community level is very
Having children is such a serious issue in 2036 that birth
control is almost unheard of. It is very difficult and precious
to have and raise children. Again, this is an issue I will
be happy to go into later.
Yes, there are same sex marriages but it's not very common.
Again, people have lived through so much hardship that if
what someone else is doing does not affect them or harm the
community, it's not a big issue.
South America went relatively unharmed. However, there is
still a great deal of internal conflict with conventional
Yes, people use drugs that alter consciousness but they are
not very common.
Yes, I know who the Beatles are. Old music and other entertainment
is available on the web.
There is another Pope but I do not know his name.
EMP took out a great number of electronic devices. That's
one of the reasons why we don't have reliable technology laying
around. However, in the opening hours of N Day, the Russians
did not launch any high altitude detonations. They knew we
would most likely clean up after them so they wanted everyone
outside the cities to be able to communicate. Most of the
warheads that hit the cities came in threes and exploded close
to the ground. The heavy EMP damage was isolated to those
areas. Actually, you will probably be quite impressed with
our Internet. It's based on a series of independent, self-powered
nodes that are mobile and can be put up anywhere. It looks
a great deal like your current cell phone system. Yes, there
are a great many people who think that Revelations has come
to pass. However, the new fear is that Christ has returned,
he's not telling us and he's very angry. I am not familiar
with the Fatima Prophesies but I am aware of the term. I was
not sent here to change anything. Since it would not affect
my home anyway, it would be rather pointless.
handmade items and the skills to make them are quite prevalent
and people take a great deal of pride in their work. People
with the skills to make clothing, work with leather and wood
or cultivate a garden have become quite valuable. Please do
not think your questions are unimportant. I enjoy the conversation.
I've noticed that when most Americans think about Canada in
this time,they think about pine trees, chooks and back-bacon.
It may interest you to know that most Canadians in 2036 are
some of the most efficient, ruthless and dangerous people
I know. God help Quebec.
couldn't even answer one simple question about music?
Unfortunately, your question is rather difficult
for me. Any personal experience I might have with your worldline
at a specific moment is limited to my viewpoint and age. I
can't tell you what music is popular in the next few years
because the "me" here is only three years old. In
addition, how does someone decide what the most popular music
trend is? It would seem rather subjective to me. Thinking
about it now I sort of wonder what it would be like to be
a teenager now and know the answer to that question. When
I was thirteen I used to worry about which shotgun slug would
take a door handle off and whether or not I had any dry socks.
Current fallout estimates are accurate but a bit exaggerated.
example of what people would do based on something I might
say is accurate. However, my concern would be the potential
actions of a single person, not the masses. In 1963, if I
suggested that someone should watch the book depository windows
as the President went by, the actions of a single person might
have a huge impact on history. You also asked if I've visited
my "past" family. That's where I am now.
mentions that he has no idea what GINGER is but he mentions
media hype and alludes to IT not amounting to much.
Again, I don't believe I said that either.
My point in that conversation was about feeling manipulated
by hype. Since they ARE asking you to buy something, I would
be very interested in your lengthy and critical postings about
ITS credibility. If you could post that link I would very
much like to see it.
says the mechanical typewriter is a major machine again in
the future and the Internet still exists and is widely used.
Actually, what I said was, ".you may be
surprised at how many people use typewriters." I don't
understand the conflict. What's wrong with typewriters? At
least you don't have to plug them in.
is the speed of the average computer in the future?
GHz is not a useful measurement. Computers
are no longer measured by their speed as mush as the number
of variables (not calculations) they can handle per second.
is the major super power in 2036?
It depends on how you define power. If you
mean military, the world has developed into an odd balance.
There are plenty of nuclear weapons left but if anyone uses
them they, will be instantly erased from the planet by everyone
else, regardless of the politics. We are very tired of war.
the two political parties still Republicans and Democrats?
There are no Republicans or Democrats to speak
of. There are now over 10 major political parties.
many States are there?
The states, as you know them, still exist but
their political power has been combined with other states
around them. There are now 5 major geopolitical areas in the
states are the worst to live in?
When you can't drink the water its bad everywhere.
companies like (popular software and Internet names) still
money look different than it does now?
No, money is pretty much the same. Unfortunately,
I do not have any money with me because I wouldn't be able
to use it here.
the government know there that time travel going on?
In 2036, yes.
many time travelers are there on your team? How do they choose
unit has between 6 and 10. When I left, there were 7 others.
Military service, physical fitness, history or technical background
and special relationship to target contacts get you in the
door. Why can't you answer questions about natural disasters?
No one can change something now that would cause an earthquake
or stop one. I will not share information that would allow
someone to avoid death by probability.
RULES FOR TEMPORAL DISCLOSURE:
I will not disclose any information that will cause someone
to personally gain by its knowledge.
I will not disclose any detailed information that would allow
someone to avoid death by probability.
I will not disclose any information that may compromise any
future actions by individual people or threaten their family
and well being.
kind of music is popular, what kind of recreation is enjoyable,
what holidays are important?
I'm not sure if you wanted to discuss these
or not. If yes, I will be happy to do that.
you feel some pleasure in breathing clean air and not having
to check a radiation counter every few miles?
Yes I do. However there is a fear about being
here that I can only define as uncertainty. When I walk around
in 2001, the air smells clean but I wonder if it really is.
In 2036, there is no gray. The air is either clean or it will
kill you. That feeling is very overwhelming when I eat here.
any near future event that makes history.
You mean other than the mad cow pandemic, the
breakthroughs in high-energy physics and the unknown functions
of the 5100? I realize I've only been on this board for a
few weeks but I assume you've read the other postings I've
made about these issues months ago in order to be so definitive.
propane still around in the future?
Yes but not very much of it comes from natural
gas. Hydrogen is converted
into propane because it's easier to handle.
would hope the location I live in would be spared (the Hawaiian
My parents went to Hawaii on their Honeymoon.
My dad told me a quick story about going to a fast food store
and paying 6 or 7 dollars for a hamburger. I got an image
in my head of a huge tanker filled with frozen hamburgers
headed into the Pacific. Hawaii is very dependant on the mainland
for food, isn't it?
you for your kind words.
the last name (forum personal name) have any historical relevance?
You may leave a message to yourself if you
happens with Australia?
I believed I wrote about Australia a bit earlier.
colloquial language is used in the future?
Many people use the Internet for communication
and entertainment. I would say that affects our speech. We
type very fast.
exactly happens to the water?
Yes, radiation affected the water but that
can always be distilled out. There are biological hazards
that cannot. In addition, fresh water is hard to come by without
talking to someone with a gun first.
intercontinental transportation still exist? Have you visited
Yes, but the market is much smaller. No, I
have not been overseas.
have said you will not participate in helping anyone avoid
'death by probability'. Yet many things you have said could
have caused an individual to do or not do something that will
now result dying, or escaping death.
It would help if you could give an example.
If you are referring to the conflict and war in your future,
I'm not sure I'm specific enough to help any individuals avoid
anything. Suggesting there is a war coming is a bit different
than saying avoid Washington DC at 3:45 AM on March 12, 2015.
is no way for you to be sure there is no future world leader
reading this and believing you.
Are you sure about that? Besides, I think you
can have just as much impact as any "future leader".
is more, you will tell us no names, no locations, or any specifics
as a result of your supposed ethics. If those were indeed
the ethics you were committed to and reasoned with, you would
not be here now.
I am curious about this also. Do you think
I should not interact with you for your safety or mine?
this and I will believe you until the ends of the Earth.
Again, you should not offer this to anyone
for any reason.
inscribe your knowledge of any large-scale events over the
next six months. Encrypt said text file. Give text file to
a custodian. The only problem is, now you have to trust the
person who brings the information forward.
MICROSINGULARITY = LOCALIZED KERR FIELD Is this a prediction?
I'm sure I would end up in one of their nice
little padded cells while In your "world time" have
things like "Saquatch" , "Loch Ness monster",
and other reported unusual animals?
have our swamp monsters too. In fact, I think it's interesting
that we all respond to the unknown the same way regardless
of our cultural experiences.
remote viewing used to gather military intelligence?
I am only aware of it from this worldline.
I don't know otherwise.
psychics still common?
Yes, psychics exist but I don't have any knowledge
of their use by the military.
there a police force as we know it? Have any of your leaders
Yes, we have police but they are organized
in smaller groups. Yes, we still have political and religious
leaders who find it difficult to obey the law. I would submit
to you that the law is only as good as the people's willingness
to apply it evenly and swiftly.
there a Global Superpower state?
Being a superpower only makes you a target.
There is an uneasy balance in the world now that everyone
"probably" has nukes, chems or bios. We don't just
bomb people for the hell of it anymore. Military power is
based on the number of autonomous fighting men who are actually
willing to fight.
they have (old computer games) in 2036?
I am aware they are video games but I have
not come across them.
China have a manned space program between 2001 and 2036?
I believe they are pretty close to putting
a man in orbit. It shouldn't surprise you if they do that
you have television in 2036?
Information does arrive on video but cathode
ray tubes are out and crystal or plasma is in. Distribution
is over the net, not broadcast.
you have flashlights in 2036? If so, what type of batteries
does it use?
Yes, we have flashlights and we use similar
batteries for most things. We do recharge a great deal. Have
you ever seen those wind-up radios? They're pretty interesting
is electricity generated in 2036?
"Most" publicly generated power
is through very efficient solar cells. On a local or household
level, there is steam, hydro and inversion generation. There
is a debate on using a singularity to generate power.
the sun look different in 2036?
When you can see it through the high level
smoke and haze, not that I'm aware of.
sort of clothing do you wear in 2036? Is there strong attention
paid to what people wear in the group?
Clothing is much more functional.
I'm not sure what group you're talking about.
had a (50/50) chance of telling us the future.
Yes, there was a 50/50 chance of that happening
but the odds were easily one out two that it could have gone
the other way.
what you mean by functional. Do you wear light colors, dark
colors, loose, tight fitting? What materials are used for
Seems a bit obscure to have a discussion
about. Do we wear radiation suits? No. Do we use pockets a
does this smoke and haze allow for solar cells to be efficient?
Do you have any idea how efficient solar
cells are today? Sometimes it's sunny and sometimes it rains.
Sometimes large dust clouds high in the atmosphere pass overhead.
I don't understand the point you want to make. The sun looks
each worldline is separate from the others, then wouldn't
consequences of your actions now have no effect on your original
Yes, that's correct.
this is the case, why won't you tell us things that will give
I am not qualified to judge if you deserve
it or not and I have no idea if you may be the next (for lack
of a better reference) Hitler. However, if I were able to
physically help you from a situation because I was there and
I knew it was coming, I would help you.
only guess is that you are not a time traveler, and don't
want to make
anyone do something stupid.
Yes, I am aware that is the obvious first answer
but I would hope my moral and logical arguments at least make
a dent in your thinking. If you were a time traveler, would
you be comfortable giving out all that information after considering
the possible consequences? (Provided you knew it). If I were
you, I would be worried about what the next time traveler
might do, even by mistake.
can I leave a message for myself in the future if the things
I do in
this worldline do not affect any other?
Just post it here. All this information will
probably end up on the web in 2036. If you're alive then and
you think ahead for some reason to do a search on yourself,
you might see it. Of course the "you" there would
have no memory of doing it.
prediction of (national politics) pending disintegration,
three short years, is impossible.
Have you see the documentary on Waco? Just
for argument's sake, what do you think would happen if information
were discovered that confirmed the worst accusations made
against the law enforcement officers there? Would you hope
you remember any poetry after 2001 in your past?
day before it wasn't snowing.
The trees are strangers, leering, disapproving in the ash
of winter ..my
world, my life, my wandering path.
I pray God's eyes may once again gaze upon me and remind me
that I am still
only (think) I remember the first line but the last one I
remember. It has quite a few more lines that I don't remember.
It is rumored this was written first as a letter by a soldier.
After he died it was added to and edited by others. In my
opinion, it has become a symbol for the collective guilt my
parents' generation feels for what became of the world.
there a market for new books in 2036? Are most of the books
available old or new?
Yes but there are no large commercial printing
and distribution companies. Books and other forms of hard
media are distributed on the web and printed or put on other
media from local hubs.
happens to Bill Clinton?
I don't really know.
happens to Bill Gates?
This I do know but I won't discuss.
are orphans an issue?
Problems with the environment still have lasting
affects on all people, which cause the average life span to
(be) lower. In addition, people are more susceptible to accidents.
Family life and children are very highly valued and the community
takes the responsibility for raising children if their parents
is your biggest environmental issue?
Water. You need it for everything and there
is very little left in the world that is positively safe to
distillation remove radioactivity from water?
It removes the dust and dirt particles that
people still watch TV?
Yes but it isn't broadcast anymore.
there women on your travel team?
Not that I'm aware of but I would assume there
are women who are either trained or are training for the same
type of work. I don't know why there wouldn't be.
is the status of women in 2036?
I understand the question but I have nothing
to relate it to in 2036. The status of women is the same as
men. Equality issues disappeared during the war.
women hold office?
women work outside the home?
Women are not expected to stay home and be "barefoot
and pregnant" if that's what you mean.
women get equal pay?
women safe on the streets at night?
There is still crime but people do not attack each other the
way they do here.
do women wear for the most part?
Clothing is more functional. Women wear very similar clothing
as men when working or training. In our free time or with
our family and friends, clothing is much more individualized.
Long dresses, knitted sweaters and pants are still quite popular.
You'll have to forgive me; I'm not very good at describing
the Amish alive and well?
Yes, I believe they are.
is the birth rate?
I don't know the exact figures but having children is radically
lower than it is now. It is the one thing I wish we had that
you enjoy here.
there an unusual rate of birth defects?
Yes. Mostly stillborn.
said that your culture was centered around Universities. Weren't
wiped out in the war?
Not all major universities are in large cities.
you use cell phones?
Yes, we use a form of cell phone.
people eat red meat?
Yes but not as much as you do.
people drive cars?
Yes but they are not produced in nearly the same numbers or
used the same way.
airlines in operation?
Yes but again, not nearly as many.
airlines travel internationally?
Yes, but most people don't get really want to go overseas.
people pressured into a Christian doctrine?
Not at all.
the police make drug busts?
there jails? What kind of criminals are in them?
Yes there are jails. Mostly theft, fraud, rape and murder.
kind of public punishment is there?
Hard labor, community service, banishment (you must move to
another community), public execution.
justice system sounds like New England during religious persecution
How do you define intolerance? We don't really have the energy
or desire to waste time being intolerant. If you produce and
help the community than you can do pretty much think and do
anything you want within the law.
there herbal medicines and alternative life styles?
there personal freedom?
Yes, the same freedoms you enjoy under the Constitution.
there an IRS?
Yes, we pay taxes. Sounds like you don't enjoy keeping track
of your personal income taxes. I don't think anyone does.
the same type of currency used? Is ours today good in 2010
Yes, we use money. That's a good question. I don't see why
you couldn't use your current bills in the future.
than time travel how do most people get around the country?
Do people travel much?
There is a high-speed train system, horseback, bike, walking.
Automobiles are used mostly for sport and some transportation.
people suspicious of strangers or are all you people just
one big happy family?
There is still conflict and mistrust. Yes, I am suspicious
of strangers. I think that's an instinct we are given to help
us stay alive.
we traveling in space in 2036?
Not yet but they are working on it.
first contact with an alien race occurred?
Not that I'm aware of.
is the next movement in music?
I appreciate your frustration and quite a few people have
asked me questions like this. The expected answer is that
I don't want to break my personal code of "time travel
ethics". The real answer is, I just don't know. I was
not prepared for the year 2001, I was prepared for 1975. I
don't suppose it would be very impressive if I told you Disco
would be big until 1980.
there any more background information you can give?
Once I leave, I would not want any attention to come to my
sure even in 2036 there is a tendency to tease one's detractors
if they make themselves available.
I have no intention of teasing anyone but I
do grow tired of the same cycle over and over again. Eventually,
the people who do not like me or what I have to say (real
or not) will win. I will either leave or grow tired of answering
the same questions.
your most vociferous detractor continually puts on weak attacks;
it takes attention away from the really challenging questions.
Again, please do not confuse my inability to
answer the same questions over and over with a desire to make
someone upset. I gain nothing by angering anyone or making
them look foolish.
said the position of women is controversial and conservative
What does that mean?
It certainly isn't disrespectful. I apologize if it sounded
that way. It's one of those areas I realize will be difficult
to discuss because we may lack similar experiences. In 2036,
there is not a desire to "have it all".
factors such as the difficulty in conceiving and the decentralization
of production and industry, there is not an unrealistic scramble
to have a "career" and a family. Out of necessity
and circumstance, family life has become more traditional.
However, there are many families where the wife /mother is
the main breadwinner and the husband / father remains "home"
the family. The difference is in the method of decision-making.
People do not have children (if they are able) unless they
can devote the required resources to maintain it.
type of money system do you have on your world line?
Its not very different than it is now. Yes, we have money
and credit cards.
like everything else, the monetary system is decentralized.
Banking is based mostly around the community structure. There
are no multinational banking or computerized economic systems.
There are also no income taxes.
there an IRS and a need to keep a lot of receipts and paperwork?
Yes, we pay taxes. I had considered going into more detail
about the tax system but I didn't have a great deal of time.
Currently, I am watching my father go over all his taxes and
he doesn't look like he's having a very good time. My comment
referred to the collective misery I see around me during this
time of year.
do you see for the future of time travel on your worldline?
That's a good question. I am hopeful that one day when we
get the planet cleaned up it will be a nice place to live
on again and no one will want to leave it. On the other hand,
if time travel were commonplace right now, I think a great
many people would leave and perhaps never return. There is
also a suggestion that time travel might make an interesting
I don't think we have the right to force criminals on unsuspecting
worldlines and sending them to the Stone Age might be a bit
find this fascinating. Has California had the big earthquake?
The big one? As you are experiencing now, there
are earthquakes, storms and other unfortunate surprises from
Mother Nature that have impacts on your society and future
history. That is one reason I won't go into detail. However,
don't worry too much about major portions of coastline slipping
music do 20 year olds listen to?
People listen to all types of music. A great deal of it is
available over the web. I would also add that people spend
much more time making their own music.
the future of cloning?
Cloning full people has been determined to be medically and
ethically unsound. We do have research and progress in cloning
body parts and creating more viable sperm and egg production.
more on Bill Gates?
Not really. Just curious, why is he of such interest?
people wear chips yet?
No. People value their personal independence and ability to
take care of themselves.
reverse speech used in the future?
I'm not very familiar with reverse speech but what I saw on
the web leads me to conclude it's a bit objective. I'm not
sure if its been proven scientifically to be very accurate.
Are you aware of any research that shows that?
about earthquakes in California or Nevada?
No I can't. Besides, I see others predicting earthquakes and
very few people pay any attention to them.
the Great Pyramids standing in 2036?
Yes, although one of them was severely damaged.
communication around the world in 2036. Do you still have
literature widely available?
Yes, books and other literature are available but most of
the distribution is via the net.
the latest book you've read that you were only able to hear
about in your own time?
The latest book I read was the autobiography of the Red Baron
compiled from letters to his mother. Yes, I was aware of it
in my own time but finding an original copy there was almost
new literature also available?
the English language segmenting? Is tourism still strong and
I would say the English language is pretty much the same as
it is now. There are differences in slang and figures of speech
but it's nothing you couldn't pick up. Yes, I suppose we do
you tell me when the police stop busting people for weed?
It happens about the same time they stop coming to your house
when you dial 911.
they start pushing for legalization earlier than the war?
It's not really an issue of the government letting you do
something; It's more like they have other things to worry
about. Don't you feel you're capable of taking care of yourself?
If you want to take mood-altering drugs, why should my opinions
stop you from that? They don't stop you from taking alcohol,
tobacco or fast food.
any case, it also lets Darwin take over. One of the reasons
drug abuse isn't a major problem in 2036 is because no one
wants to die from it and everyone else who did is dead.
people using "reverse speech"?
Not that I'm aware of.
did you attend High school and what year did you graduate?
No, I did not have a "high school" experience.
is it not ok to give us information about our near future
but it is ok
to take back emails and modify another worldline?
I'm not saying anything in your messages. You are. Are you
suggesting I edit your emails? Are you unable to weigh the
consequences of your opportunity and I am now responsible
for what you might say to yourself? Now that you have the
chance to put your own morals to the test do you feel you're
incapable of living up to your own standards?
it wrong to say one thing and not something else? If you feel
you should tell yourself to buy a certain stock than I suppose
you are willing to take the risk that "your" advice
doesn't prove wrong in the next few days. What ever I might
do, I would consider the fact that someday you will have to
address this question again as an entire society.
would I offer to make the video if I thought it would "expose"
me? If it makes you feel better, I doubt it will change your
mind anyway but it will give you something to talk about when
I'm gone. I think that's the greatest gift I could give you.
most of the people of that time die, especially ones that
Yes, and people are still dying and a great deal of them are
passing from CJD. As I said, with my very first few posts
almost 6 months ago, I want to emphasize how devastating this
will be. I believe two people are confirmed dead in Colorado
from CDJ from surgical instruments. Ahhhh, the power of cheese.
Milk does a body good and beef is what's for dinner!
"No, I have not tried any fast food. Thinking about where
the food came from, how it was shipped and treated absolutely
terrifies me. I have tried to tell people about CJD disease
and it seems to be "catching on" in Europe."
Do not eat or use products from any animal that is fed and
eats parts of
its own dead.
The "Mad Cow" story here is yet to begin...
it possible that sometime in your future that time travel
will be commonplace?
Yes, that is absolutely possible and eventual.
any of the scientists of your time discovered any new planets,
possibly ones with life?
Not that I'm aware of.
the bandwidth of the Internet increased greatly?
does time travel affect future exploration of the universe?
There is a great deal of debate about trying to use a distortion
unit to "travel" to the moon. The experiment would
require very precise calculations that would allow the VGL
system to find a theoretical path to the moon on a different
worldline. The only problem is there is no way to communicate
with anyone if the experiment should succeed. In other words,
it's possible to do it but only the people on the receiving
end could take advantage of it.
there still (sporting event) in 2036?
Yes, we still play basketball but I am not a fan and can't
comment on its organization.
