"Anybody know where those chisels are ? (for making the names)
Hi there Time Traveller, welcome back quite a lot of changes in your absence. We even have a public transport system these days . "
Aries (ACE) Posted Jun 6, 2007
Why a chisel? We have new fangled things these days called a computer controlled scriber. You type in the words click "Do" or "Go" or if you're of a more violent persuausion (or it's powered by windows) you kick it to get it going.
I wish to join

Hello. I am bluewolf482, an ardent supporter of werewolf rights. Due to the nature of my work, I wish to travel back in time and prevent the werewolf attacks that gave us such a bad rap. Please contact me if I can join this group.

Ahem. Ahem, ahem.
I would like to join with the title of "Keeper". My main intention is to prevent interference and to eliminate unnecessary temporal anomalies.
Well, I say unnecessary, but I really just mean anomalies that I don't enjoy observing. You wouldn't believe some of the paradoxes I've seen in my day. Absolute hilarity!
Anyway, I am willing to take other titles if deemed necessary. I have experience in many a temporally-related area, including the creation and maintenance of time-winding apparatus.
And, if I may say so myself, I come with excellent references. I'll put it this way - my work for Death did not go unappreciated.

Entry # 1, before reading the thread:
Special interests in time; the causal analysis approach to resolving dilemmas of inductive logic, founded on differentiation of order of events in causal systems in terms of durational, chronological and psychological standards, from the points of view of any respective observers and the actual system of events; differentiation of discontinuities in the reported durational, chronological and psychological frameworks of orientation; quantum and wave mechanical time.
Preferred Title: Observer
Entry # 2 follows, after I read the thread.

2nd posting, on posts 1 - 120
On post # 9, second username: GreenEyedSloth
...passing reflection I've not so far seen any accounts of real life time travel incidents. The earliest of mine I can remember follows.
I stepped around the corner of the house and saw a portal open (it looked like a rather raggedy edged hole in space) a short fat man and an even shorter skinny man stepped out of it. Being only two years of age at the time, I did the natural thing and screamed and ran away, to my Grandma, relating what I'd seen. As I fled, I remember hearing one of the men remarking, "We've got to get out of here."
My father afterward complained that the family car had been stolen.
On post 19, amusing. ...A few one handed clocks besides the 2 and 3 handed clocks, digitals and other kinds. Of course a clock calibrated in moles and moles squared of quantum time. (A mole squared of quantum times is about five hours, 19 minutes and some barely significant seconds. A mole of quantum times is very near the effective limit of the possible with respect to precision of measurement.)
On post 51 Isaac Asimov's "The End of Eternity" provides a useful illustration of one of the psychological conundrums of time travel, a phobic response to encounters with oneself. There is an opposite to be found in the TV serial "7 days", in which, in one of the episodes, the protagonist is depicted simultaneously briefing and debriefing himself prior to embarking on a mission and after return, a rather wholesome display of self acceptance.
On posts 61 and 62, ...acceleration of rate of spatial displacement yields deceleration of rate of temporal displacement... Cosmological implications to that, time is traveling more slowly in the here and now than it was during the early phases of cosmological expansion, unless one factors in the relativistic effects of gravitational compression, comparatively speaking. This has implications also with respect to time travel, since decompression stops analogous to those of deep sea diving are required for travel over geological and cosmological time.
...alas, for the moment, "Time Must Have A Stop" (title original with one one of my boyhood neighbors, separated by only 1/10th of a mile and twenty years in time.)
Back later with more.

I want to be part of the time traveller.
My job, if you accept, would be time abnormality creator.
Because my favourite time abnormality is a Chesterfield time-travelling sofa.

hum... just forget my previous post with a lot of smiley, this post I was doing it for joining the fools...
