Part 4 of this tale begins with my sister and myself deciding to build a time machine from the report I had, The 10th Key to the Riddle of Time. There were a couple of projects to work on. The report detailed how to build a time portal, TA36 Time Antenna, QR7000 Quantum Resonator, and the Space Time Modulator. We decided upon the Space Time Modulator. It was a time machine that was apparently the size of a small pack of cigarettes. And from the standpoint of someone who didn’t know much about electronics, didn’t seem too complicated or expensive to build. From my research on the internet, found that all the parts could be obtained from Radio Shack.
To Radio Shack!
One day after school my sister, her future husband, a friend of theirs, and myself went to Radio Shack to price the necessary items and inquire someone who works there in what else may be needed. Electronic advice is what I mean. None of use knew how to read schematics or knew how to weld if that was necessary. Walking into the store I had a twinge of excitement but felt I had to hide it. My sister’s future husband is a practical man and while he never directly made fun of me for pursuing this, he made comments about how this is a waste of time. (time, lol) This kind of critical attitude is one of the examples why I felt I had to hide what I was doing. I was still only 14 and still cared waaay too much about what other people think. Anyway, walking through the store I found some of the parts while my sister showed a Radio Shack employee the schematics but didn’t tell him what is was for. His reaction to the schematic was something to the effect of, “What..is..this?” He told her it wouldn’t really do anything except complete a circuit. This reaction did not discourage us. We left the store determined to build the Space Time Modulator, no matter what the results.
Shortly after our visit to Radio Shack my sister began to be tailed by black SUVs. Anytime she drove to work and back, she would be followed by a black SUV. She told me she would take a bunch of turns just to make sure she wasn’t being paranoid, and sure enough they were following her. Looking through her rearview mirror, she could see the driver. Blank-faced man in a black suit. We both thought..crap, Men In Black! For those who don’t know of the Men In Black other than the movies. The Men In Black, as the legend goes, are a group of slightly inhuman people dressed in black suits who suppress public awareness of aliens or anything “out there” through the use of intimidation or other means. At the time, we thought the Men In Black were trying to discourage us from time traveling. Whoever was following my sister matched a basic MIB sighting in appearance at least.
The tailing continued for a couple of weeks on an almost daily consistency and that’s all it was. This event may have no connection whatsoever to our time travel endeavors, but it happened and neither of us still don’t know why. Eventually it stopped, and sometime after that my sister ended up hittin’ the road and moved out due to life circumstances at the time. Since then, there have been no mysterious cars tailing her and we never did build the Space Time Modulator.
My research into all matters concerning the Hyper Dimensional Resonator and other time travel related topics continued. Was looking for anyone online who had experiences with this thing and that is whenever I met CarlosX.
Next time: CarlosX, doubles from parallel universes, and prank phone calls.
