Philosophy of Time Travel
(Roberta Sparrow)


Time is usually a stable construct but every now and then the fourth dimension gets corrupted and when this thing occurs it creates a Tangent universe (TU) which, theory suggests, can be highly unstable and can only last a few weeks, if so, before it collapses upon itself. Now, there is a real danger that when the TU collapses it could cause a black hole capable of destroying the Primary universe (PU) as well. Could it be possible that everything in our world timeline is becoming more and more chaotic and the world is close to coming to an end because we have separated from a stable, parent, universe and need to be destroyed to rebalance the overall cosmic structure? But why would the universe start to spiral out of control, just to, maybe, re-connect to the primary universe or else everyone within that tangent universe would perish?

This is an interesting theory and it deserves attention of it’s own, even outside of ”Donnie Darko” movie. Suppose we are living in a tangent universe, dislodged from the primary universe because of some event, maybe we have a lot more time than the original ”theory” estimates. Perhaps we don’t have weeks, but months, or years, or decades.

Would you be willing to help save this universe if you knew you could?

It could be the case that experiments such as famous Philadelphia Experiment could have created this unbalance. When we carried out this type of experiment we do not really know what we’re doing on a larger (multi)cosmic sclae. So we are, right now, probably living in such a tangent universe. That’s why we are all confused and killing ourselves at this very moment. Probably anything is possible and it’s also a good possibility that nearly all universes exist as a tangent of the original.

Picture the multiverse as a neural network of universes – like our neurons are connected via synapses and dendrites.

Therefore multiverse is expanding to increase the knowledge of the original (if one actually exists).

The possibilities are endless…



Philosophy of Time Travel

The Tangent Universe

The Primary Universe is fraught with great peril. War, plague, famine and natural disaster are common.

Death comes to us all. The Fourth Dimension of Time is a stable construct, though it is not impenetrable.

Incidents when the fabric of the fourth dimension becomes corrupted are incredibly rare.

If a Tangent Universe occurs, it will be highly unstable, sustaining itself for no longer than several weeks.

Eventually it will collapse upon itself, forming a black hole within the Primary Universe capable of destroying all existence.


Water And Metal

Water and Metal are the key elements of Time Travel.

Water is the barrier element for the construction of Time Portals used as gateways between Universes as the Tangent Vortex.

Metal is the transitional element for the construction of Artifact Vessels.


The Artifact And The Living

When a Tangent Universe occurs, those living nearest to the Vortex, will find themselves at the epicenter of a dangerous new world.

Artifacts provide the first sign that a Tangent Universe has occurred.

If an Artifact occurs, the Living will retrieve it with great interest and curiosity.

Artifacts are formed from metal, such as an arrowhead from an ancient mayan civilization, or a metal sword from Medieval Europe.

Artifacts returned to the Primary Universe are often linked to religious iconography, as their appearance on Earth seems to defy logical explanation.

Divine intervention is deemed the only logical conclusion for the appearance of the Artifact.


The Living Receiver

The Living Receiver is chosen to guide the Artifact into position for its journey back to the Primary Universe.

No one knows how or why a Receiver will be chosen.

The Living Receiver is often blessed with a Fourth Dimensional Powers.

These include increased strength, telekinesis, mind control, and the ability to conjure fire and water.

The Living Receiver is often tormented by terrifying dreams, visions and auditory hallucinations during his time within the Tangent Universe.

These surrounding the Living Receiver, known as the Manipulated, will fear him and try to destroy him.


The Manipulated Living

The Manipulated Living are often the close friends and neighbors of the Living Receiver.

They are prone to irrational, bizarre, and often violent behavior.

This is the unfortunate result of their task, which is to assist the Living Receiver in returning the Artifact to the Primary Universe.

The Manipulated Living will do anything to save themselves from oblivion.


Ensurance Trap

The Manipulated Dead will set an Ensurance Trap.

The Living Receiver must ensure the fate of all mankind.


The Manipulated Dead

The Manipulated Dead are more powerful than the Living Receiver. If a person dies within the Tangent Dimension, they are able to contact the Living Receiver through the Fourth Dimensional Construct.

The Fourth Dimensional Construct is made of water.

The Manipulated Dead will manipulate the Living Receiver using the Fourth Dimensional Construct.

The Manipulated Dead will often set an Ensurance Trap for the Living Receiver to ensure that the Artifact is returned safely to the Primary Universe.

If the Ensurance Trap is successful, the Living Receiver is left with no choice but to use his Fourth Dimensional Power to send the Artifact back in time into the Primary Universe before the Black hole collapses upon itself.



When the Manipulated awaken from their journey into the Tangent Universe, they are often haunted by the experience in their dreams.

Many of them will not remember.

Those who do remember the journey are often overcome with profound remorse for the regretful actions buried within their Dreams, the only physical evidence buried within the Artifact itself, all that remains from the lost world.

Ancient myth tells us of the mayan warrior killed by an arrowhead that had fallen from a cliff, where there was no army, no enemy to be found.

We are told of the medieval knight mysteriously impaled by sword he had not yet built.

We are told that these things occur for a reason.
