This part of the story is a little strange, however I guarantee you all of it happened. It is now about 2 months into the school year and I had managed to score a few bucks by participating in a school fundraiser by selling magazines. I don’t remember what I did with most of the money, probably blew it vidja games or something, I really only remember what I bought in relation to this story.
I didn’t have any where near enough for the $360 Hyper Dimensional Resonator, but I did have enough for one of the other items listed in the Time Travel catalog. Flipping through it, I wasn’t really sure what to purchase. After a few days of mulling this over in my head I ended up buying a report called “The Tenth Key to the Riddle of Time.” Cool name, huh? The description mentioned it contained written accounts of people who had time traveled using the HDR and other methods. It also contained schematics and instructions on how to build other time travel and/or psychic devices.
About a week later I received my report. It was a strange moment for me, because I began to feel I was getting into some strange stuff. I didn’t except this as absolute truth, but mentally I had become very involved with the notion of becoming a time traveler. While other kids were doing the teenage thing, I was seriously trying to become a time traveler. Not sure if I mentioned this before, but I’m not entirely sure what my motive was. I had a pretty good life, so I didn’t need an escape nor did I feel any need to go back in time to right a wrong. ‘Sides, I would of created a paradox. Time travel 101.
The report itself was mildly impressive. The cover picture had a drawing of some sort of wizard guy putting his hand out for birds…??? I still don’t understand that one. As for the report itself, it had a few scanned letters from customers telling him how the machine has helped them. I forgot to mention, the machine also helps in healing through the concept of radionics. I’ll post a link to a description of that at the end. Next was the documented time-travel experiences. There was a story of someone who used the machine to have an OBE(Out of body experience) and explored a parallel universe, went to some realm where he fought vampires, and..don’t remember the rest..sorry. There was one about a guy used a converted Tesla coil for time travel to see what the future holds in store for is. In 2015, Chicago is under martial law for some reason, further into the future the society turns into something like the Kingdom of Zeal from Chrono Trigger. There were more, if I still had the report I’d scan it and share it for all to see without the charge of $20. And then there were the plans to build other time travel devices. Time portals built using pvc pipes, some wires, a copper pyramid, and quartz crystals built over a ley line. I will post a description to what ley lines are as well at the end. There was a plan for a pocket sized time travel device which could be used to transport the operator anywhere(anywhen?)in the past or future in duration of an hour. This interested me, and I wanted to build one even if it didn’t work. How many kids could say there were building a time portal?
Before I could build a time portal, I would need a way to locate a ley line intersection. Fortunately for me, there was a method to do this. This method is dowsing. I suppose I should post a more detailed explanation of what dowsing is near the end too. The method I would attempt would involve attaching a single-terminated quartz crystal(crystal with one pointed end) to a chain or crystal and ask assistance from a higher power to direct you towards an ley line intersection. I didn’t have any quartz crystals, so I ended up purchasing one from Steven Gibbs who also happened to sell those as well.
Another week of waiting, I got my quartz crystal pendulum! The instructions said to pray to Jesus(Mr.Gibbs is apparently a man of christian faith) for help in locating a grid point. The crystal would begin to sway in the direction of a grid point and once you were over one it would stop swaying and begin rotating. I tried it out, and sure enough it began to sway and I found a grid point right in my home. To make sure it worked, I even tried to see if it would rotate in the same spot. It did, but that didn’t really prove anything to me. My mind could have just really wanted it to work. Sometime later, one of my friends who knew about what I was researching tried out the pendulum. Not telling him where the spots where in my house, he tried the pendulum and stopped over the same points. It freaked me out for a bit, but then my skeptical mind stopped me from getting too carried away. I wanted it to be true, but at the same time I didn’t want to be so far gone into this kind of stuff and become an unhealthy crazy guy. I say unhealthy because I believe there is to be good way to go about being crazy..y’know, the kind where you are being yourself and shizz. Back to before, I was resistant in getting more carried away with this than what I felt I had been up to this point because I had fear of becoming crazy. Later on, my sister would try it out and the crystal would rotate over the same spots. So maybe dowsing was real, but what about the time travel machines? I eventually told my sister everything I was researching, and being the awesomely open minded person she is decided to build one of the time travel devices from the report with me.
(Author’s note: Before writing the “Next time” section, I must make a comment. I noticed my “Next time” sections haven’t contained everything that is promised to be there..next time. I apologize for this. The parts of the story that haven’t been covered in the NT’s will be covered. I write out the blog and once I reach a suitable stopping point, I realize I haven’t covered everything promised. Once again, I apologize and from this point on I will be more mindful of what I write. )
Next time: What exactly goes into time machine construction? And, a string of possible MIB encounters?
Ley lines-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ley_line Wikipedia definition
There is more to ley lines that what is described here. There are a ton of websites if you want to know more about what they are believed to be. Rumor has it even Nikola Tesla himself utilized their energies.
Dowsing-Wikipedia. Not sure why I didn’t just tell you to go there in the first place. There is also a multitude of info on this subject as well.
See you next time!
