Judging from the comments received in recent days concerning my last essay, I feel it necessary to perhaps clarify a few of the points I made there. Please indulge me 10 minutes of your time to set the record straight on the intent and implications of my most recent essay, “The Scope.”
As many of you know my curiosity has not abated since I published Conviction of a Time Traveler, but it has taken a decidedly different tack than even I expected. Part and parcel to the new and unexpected directions my curiosity has taken me, the bounds by which I can label these discoveries has overflowed from the usual stories of fantastical machines or thoughts of bearing personal witness to history.
So, I write this essay in the hopes of conveying to you, dear reader, a taste of the scope of what I have discovered. If we are to understand the Question more fully and explore those unseen gears that turn behind the scenes we must push beyond the simple; push beyond the easily understood “man and time machine” story.
This essay is a review of an observation I made in 2011 and explored with a Friend (HJ) back in 2011. This Friend helped me ‘polish’ this observation and I am forever thankful for the service he provided, both seen and unseen.
I have decided it might be time to release these ideas now.
I have to wonder, has anyone noticed that the next Winter Olympics is being held in South Korea in just two months?
Where have we heard this before?
