Travelling in time without a timemachine

1 minute

Treading into the past or future is possible. What science can’t, you can…read on to know how!

 My lack of depth in pure maths never stops me from discovering concepts. I have a powerful tool in literature that surpasses calculus. It’s called imagination. 

In theoretical/pure mathematics, dimensions can be more than we feel and see around us – length, breadth and height. For simple people like me, the interpretation is that there’s so much un-utilised space that needs to be acquired!

This to my wondering mind (though mathematically not be correct, as I have just picked the idea of another dimension for fun – so consider it for fun’s sake alone, don’t place it at science’s altar and massacre my humble humour) means lots of space around me where I can keep more trash that usually surrounds my three-dimensional existence.

I may prefer to throw away all unused inventory into fourth dimension and further. So that when guests arrive at my place it’s neat. Also, at times when I would not want to be searched by some acquaintances, I may just walk away into another dimension.

The extra dimension – well if not the worm holes as in space – would also help me save time – as I may just step into office in a few seconds, perhaps – rather than facing the usual traffic. How about walking to and fro between two locations instantly – that’s going to be super-management! Say you are attending a meeting in the board room but there’s some parcel-delivery at your locked gate back home. You excuse yourself for a minute, walk-through that extra dimension to your home receive the parcel and come back to the discussion table in a minute or lesser.

Again, don’t go by the mathematical definition of dimensions, purely. Here we are merely considering possibility of such short-cuts in a world of story-telling.

Just imagine, if we really had the option of ‘escaping’ away from this ‘reality’ – it may be Alice’s wonderland or H G Wells’s walk through “The door in the wall…” then what kind of life we would be living! It’s living multiple lives simultaneously. Precisely, coming to the point, it’s the ever-wondered time-travel that myths and science have always considered a possibility – through beliefs or through equations.

My lack of depth in pure maths never stops me from discovering concepts. I have a powerful tool in literature that surpasses calculus. It’s called imagination. And I have already experienced a fourth dimension. It takes me away from this 3-D reality I live in. It’s called ‘thinking’. You just need to get deep into your mind – dream, imagine…and believe you me, you can travel any place, any time, any direction in time. You won’t need a time machine to do so. I don’t need one anyway! Happy imagination!
