Two Astonishing Cases Of Men Who Say They Traveled Through Time

In Archive, Conspiracy, News, Science & Technology on April 5, 2014 at 1:40 AM

MessageToEagle.com – If a person told you he has visited the past or future, you would probably not believe him.

If the same person revealed to you that he is a regular time traveler, you would most likely never talk to him again.

The subject of time travel is considered to be just as fascinating as contradicting. “How can we solve time travel paradoxes? Is faster than light travel really possible?” These are just some of the scientists have been asking themselves while scratching their heads.

People’s interest in the possibility of time travel started a long time.

H.G. Wells book The Time Machine, one of the earliest works of science fiction and the progenitor of the “time travel” opened the way to many more publications and interest in the topic spread quickly. Both the public and some elements of the scientific community began to ponder if time travel made any sense at all.

If traveling back in time is possible at all, it should in theory be only possible to travel back to the point when the first time machine was created and so this would mean that time travelers from the future would be able to visit us, many scientists speculated.

While the possibility of time travel has never been eliminated, scientists have identified a number of physical challenges and the debate is ongoing.

In September 2011, CERN researchers announced the discovery of sub-atomic particles apparently traveling faster than light.

According to Jeff Forshaw, a Professor of particle physics at Britain’s Manchester University, these results if confirmed would mean it would be possible in theory to “send information into the past.”

The discovery would open up intriguing theoretical possibilities.

“Light speed is a cosmic speed limit and it exists in order to protect the law of cause and effect,” said Professor Forshaw.

“If something travels faster than the cosmic speed limit, then it becomes possible to send information into the past – in other words, time travel into the past would become possible. That does not mean we’ll be building time-machines anytime soon though – there is quite a gulf between a time-traveling neutrino to a time-traveling human.”

The biggest theoretical problem is known as the time-travel paradox. If someone travels back in time and does something to prevent their own existence, then how can time travel be possible? The classic example is the time traveler who kills his grandfather before his own father is conceived.
Civilization stuck on an endless loop on the very fabric of time. Is time travel possible?

Cosmologists, renowned for their imaginative ingenuity, have come up with a way round this paradox.

They have suggested that there is not one universe but many. In fact there could be so many different universes that every possible outcome of any event actually takes place. In this multiple universe, or “multiverse” model, a woman who goes back in time to murder her own granny can get way with it because in the universe next door the granny lives to have the daughter who becomes the murderer’s mother.

Recently, scientists announced they have discovered the first evidence of a multiple universe, , which is another indication we should not dismiss the possibility of time travel too quickly. There is still a lot we don’t know and our knowledge of science and the universe keeps expanding every day.

The subject of time travel has fascinated humans for a long time.

There are many people who claim to have traveled through time. Among them are Seattle Attorney Andrew Basiago and Håkan Nordqvist from Sweden.

In 2004, Andrew Basiago made a very controversial announcement publicly claiming that from the time he was 7 to when he was 12, he participated in “Project Pegasus,” a secret U.S. government program that he said worked on teleportation and time travel under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

“They trained children along with adults so they could test the mental and physical effects of time travel on kids. Also, children had an advantage over adults in terms of adapting to the strains of moving between past, present and future,” Basiago said.

During this time, Basiago said that he experienced eight different time travel technologies. Mostly, he said, his travel involved a teleporter based on technical papers supposedly found in pioneering mechanical engineer Nikola Tesla’s New York City apartment after his death in January 1943.

“The machine consisted of two gray elliptical booms about eight feet tall, separated by about 10 feet, between which a shimmering curtain of what Tesla called ‘radiant energy’ was broadcast,” Basiago said. “Radiant energy is a form of energy that Tesla discovered that is latent and pervasive in the universe and has among its properties the capacity to bend time-space.”

Basiago also said that he had seen a photograph of Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg in 1863 and traveled to Ford’s Theatre the night of Lincoln’s assassination on five or six occasions, but he never witnesses the assassination.

Basiago said each of his visits to the past was different, “like they were sending us to slightly different alternative realities on adjacent timelines. As these visits began to accumulate, I twice ran into myself during two different visits.”

These time travelers returned to the present day or their point of origin with help of some sort of holographic technology allowed them to travel both physically and virtually.

“If we were in the hologram for 15 minutes or fewer,” Basiago explained, “the hologram would collapse, and after about 60 seconds of standing in a field of super-charged particles … we would find ourselves back on the stage … in the present.”

Basiago said the technology should only be used for real-time teleportation, not time travel, because, “It would be chaos.”

Andrew Basiago shares his story of time travel and Project Pegasus with activist and radio host Bob Tuskin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7lflso7mT0

Håkan Nordkvist in Sweden claims to have visited the future and he says he has proof of it. 

Both stories are as interesting as unbelievable, but as Einstein said: ” The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

Can we with certainty say what is really possible and not?

10th Anniversary; The Face on Mars: Q&A

In Archive, NASA, News, Science & Technology on April 5, 2014 at 12:14 AM

faceonmars

Mysterious Universe; Nick Redfern

This summer will mark the 10th anniversary of the publication of Mac Tonnies’ book on the “Face on Mars.” Its title: After the Martian Apocalypse. While, today, the “Face” may not provoke the scale of controversy that it did a decade ago, there are still significant things to say about it. One of them is an interview I did with Tonnies just after the book was published.

The Q&A was for a magazine that folded just after it barely began, which meant it never saw the light of day. But, I kept the interview on file and figured: why not bring it to your attention? It’s a long interview, so I’ve split it into two-parts. In the Q&A below, I am, of course, “NR,” and Mac is “MT.”

NR: How did you get interested in the controversy surrounding the so-called Face on Mars?

MT: I’ve always had an innate interest in the prospect of extraterrestrial life. When I realized that there was an actual scientific inquiry regarding the Face and associated formations, I realized that this was a potential chance to lift SETI from the theoretical arena; it’s within our ability to visit Mars in person. This was incredibly exciting, and it inspired an interest in Mars itself — its geological history, climate, et cetera.

NR: What is your background?

MT: I have a BA in Creative Writing. So, of course, there are those who will happily disregard my book because I’m not “qualified.” I suppose my question is “Who *is* qualified to address potential extraterrestrial artifacts?” Certainly not JPL, whose Mars exploration timetable is entirely geology-driven. We direly need to rethink how we practice SETI; in that spirit, After the Martian Apocalypse can be read as an editorial or manifesto.

NR: For readers unfamiliar with the story of the Face and Mars and associated structures, what is the background to it, how was the face first identified, when, and who by?

MT: The first two objects to attract attention were the Face and the “D&M Pyramid,” both unearthed by digital imaging specialists Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar. Their research was published in “Unusual Martian Surface Features”; shortly after, Richard Hoagland pointed out a collection of features near the Face which he termed the “City.” NASA itself discovered the Face and even showed it at a press conference after it had been photographed by the Viking mission in the 1970s. Of course, it was written off as a curiosity. Scientific analysis would have to await independent researchers.

cydonia

NR: When and how did the controversy really start?

MT: When NASA dismissed the Face as a “trick of light,” they cited a second, discomfirming photo allegedly taken at a different sun-angle. This photo never existed. DiPietro and Molenaar had to dig through NASA archives to find a second image of the Face — and, far from disputing the face-like appearance, it strengthened the argument that the Face remained face-like from multiple viewing angles.

NR: What were/are the primary theories of the leading independent researchers?

MT: The prevailing alternative to NASA’s geological explanation — that the Face and other formations are natural landforms — is that we’re seeing extremely ancient artificial structures built by an unknown civilization.

NR: What does NASA say about the controversy?

MT: NASA chooses to ignore that there is a controversy, or at least a controversy in the scientific sense. Since making the Face public in the 1970s, NASA has made vague allusions to humans’ ability to “see faces” (e.g. the “Man in the Moon”) and has made lofty dismissals, but it has yet to launch any sort of methodical study of the objects under investigation.  Collectively, NASA frowns on the whole endeavor.  Mainstream SETI theorists are equally hostile.

pareidolia

MT: Basically, the Face — if artificial — doesn’t fall into academically palatable models of how extraterrestrial intelligence will reveal itself, if it is in fact “out there.” Searching for radio signals is well and good, but scanning the surface of a neighboring planet for signs of prior occupation is met with a very carefully cultivated institutionalized scorn. And of course it doesn’t help that some of the proponents of the Face have indulged in more than a little baseless “investigation.”

NR: What are your views/conclusions?

MT: I think some of the objects in the Cydonia region of Mars are probably artificial. And I think the only way this controversy will end is to send a manned mission. The features under investigation are extremely old and warrant on-site archaeological analysis. We’ve learned — painfully — that images from orbiting satellites won’t answer the fundamental questions raised by the Artificiality Hypothesis.

NR: Do you believe all the perceived anomalous structures are indeed that or do you feel some are of natural origin while some are of unnatural origin?

MT: I suspect that we’re seeing a fusion of natural geology and megascale engineering. For example, the Face is likely a modified natural mesa, not entirely unlike some rock sculptures on Earth but on a vastly larger and more technically challenging scale.

NR: What are your views on the idea that some more recent images appear to show signs of vegetation?

MT: The Mars Global Surveyor has taken images of anomalous branching objects that look for all the world like organic phenomena. Arthur C. Clarke, for one, is sold on the prospect of large forms of life on Mars, and has been highly critical of JPL’s silence.

NR: Can you expand on this – theories as to what sort of vegetation (if indeed that is what it is), the areas it has been seen in, implications.

MT: Clarke’s most impressive candidates are what he has termed “banyan trees” near the planet’s south pole.  And he collaborated with Mars researcher Greg Orme in a study of similar features NASA has termed “black spiders” — root-like formations that suggest tenacious macroscopic life.

mars-trees

NR: Is there a relationship between the face and the pyramids and similar in Egypt? What does the research community think of this perceived connection?

MT: There’s a superficial similarity between some of the alleged pyramids in the vicinity of the Face and the better-known ones here on Earth. This has become the stuff of endless arcane theorizing, and I agree with esoteric researchers that some sort of link between intelligence on Mars and Earth deserves to be taken seriously.

MT: But the formations on Mars are much, much larger than terrestrial architecture. This suggests a significantly different purpose, assuming they’re intelligently designed. Richard Hoagland, to my knowledge, was the first to propose that the features in Cydonia might be “arcologies” — architectural ecologies — built to house a civilization that might have retreated underground for environmental reasons.

Google Claims it Will Now Encrypt All Search Data – Do You Believe Them?

In News, NSA, Science & Technology, Surveillance, USA on March 15, 2014 at 5:57 AM

via 4thAnon

21st Century Wire says…

The headlines read, “Google to encrypt searches, aims to foil NSA and China”. Really?

Google aims to foil the NSA… now that sure sounds great, but beyond the flowery headlines, that’s pretty hard to believe considering how from the beginning, Google’s financial and boardroom links to the NSA, CIA, DARPA, and Bilderberg have defined its ‘higher purpose’ as the data infrastructure of choice which the general populace works through.

From a PR standpoint, it’s a no-brainer that Google and other big players who dominate the global user base – have to clean up their public image and repair trust issues by simply releasing grandiose statements in their corporate press releases.

China is always a great media buzzword, but post-Snowden, Americans no longer see China as the evil neighbor, rather, as our Orwellian brothers and sisters.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s made a grand pledge recently that Google would use encryption in order “to counter internet censorship”.

“I believe there’s a real chance that we can eliminate censorship and the possibility of censorship in a decade”, said Schmidt.

This is the same Eric Schmidt who meets in secret with two hundred other global luminaries every year in June at the Bilderberg Summit to chart humanities course for the coming year. There is no transparency with Bilderberg’s agenda, so it’s highly doubtful that Schmidt’s Google would be transparent either.

What more likely here, is that Google will provide encryption, but they will still analysis the raw data and players like the NSA will be given (or will take) the encryption keys. Just a minor formality at the end of the day.

Bottom line: because of the collusion between firms like Google, Facebook and Microsoft – the trust is gone.

Until the NSA is scrapped and firms like Google have to sign public charters guarranteeing compliance to Americans’ Bill of Rights, then it’s just more of the same.

Google is encrypting search globally. That’s bad for the NSA and China’s censors.

Craig Timberg and JIa Lynn Yang
Washington Post


Google has begun routinely encrypting Web searches conducted in China, posing a bold new challenge to that nation’s powerful system for censoring the Internet and tracking what individual users are viewing online.

The company says the move is part of a global expansion of privacy technology designed to thwart surveillance by government intelligence agencies, police and hackers who, with widely available tools, can view e-mails, search queries and video chats when that content is unprotected.


China’s Great Firewall, as its censorship system is known, has long intercepted searches for information it deemed politically sensitive. Google’s growing use of encryption there means that government monitors are unable to detect when users search for sensitive terms, such as “Dalai Lama” or “Tiananmen Square,” because the encryption makes them appear as indecipherable strings of numbers and letters.

China — and other nations, such as Saudi Arabia and Vietnam, that censor the Internet on a national level — will still have the option of blocking Google search services altogether. But governments will have more difficulty filtering content for specific search terms. They also will have more trouble identifying which people are searching for information on sensitive subjects, experts say.

The development is the latest — and perhaps most unexpected — consequence of Edward Snowden’s release last year of National Security Agency documents detailing the extent of government surveillance of the Internet. Google and other technology companies responded with major new investments in encryption worldwide…

Spy tech goes cheap: Track your car, kid, wife, Ex, Mistress, boss or any enemy for $10 a month

New Kickstarter-funded startup seeks to lower cost of GPS tracking.


The Texas-based TraqCloud says that its GPS tracker can be put into “BreadCrumbs” mode. Red dots indicate speeding. TraqCloud

 

A small company in Texas has produced the TraqCloud, a new, significantly cheaper way to track anyone or anything using GPS. TraqCloud, in its promotional materials, is marketed for luggage or kid tracking, but using such a tracker against a suspected cheating love interest, a sneaky business partner, or local law enforcement is now simple and inexpensive.

The electronics combine a GPS tracker with a GSM-based radio for real-time location reporting, all contained in a case roughly the size of a deck of cards. The TraqCloud is powered by a rechargeable battery, which the company says will last 1-14 days, depending on the frequency of location updates. All location data is uploaded to the company’s cloud service, where the TraqCloud can be tracked by anyone with a computer, tablet, or smartphone. The service can geofence specific locations, warning the owner if a TraqCloud either leaves or enters the property; it can also display a “breadcrumbs” view showing the TraqCloud’s location over time (with breadcrumbs in red if a tracked car is speeding at a specific location).

The real kicker here is the price: TraqCloud charges just $69 for the device plus $10 per month in service fees, which covers both the GSM data connection and the company’s cloud service. (Similar cheap devices are largely made by no-name manufacturers in Asia, selling on eBay.) For some time now, commercial products have made it easy for anyone to track anyone else for any reason, but those cost around $150 upfront, with a $20 to $50 monthly service fee after that. (Intrepid tinkerers have developed cheaper, DIY-basd solutions, particularly to track your own car.)

For the last 10 days, TraqCloud has tried to raise money for its product via its Kickstarter campaign, and the first 100 trackers sold for just $19, with the first three months of service free.

“It is possible for any type of tracking device to be used for the wrong reasons,” Michael Hamilton, a TraqCloud cofounder, told Ars. “We promote safety things like child location tracking, fleet tracking, luggage tracking, safe teenage driving, and theft prevention. Keep in mind we are just a couple of dads with an amazing idea focused on providing the best possible GPS tracking experience via our device and cloud service.”

Hamilton added that his company’s acceptable use policy forbids violating the privacy of others.

“Violating this policy is grounds for termination of the service,” he added.

“Surveillance law is likely to be irrelevant”

Back in January 2012, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that law enforcement did not have the authority to place a GPS tracker onto someone’s car without a warrant. However, the same rule may not apply to individuals tracking other individuals (particularly those traveling on public roads); for now, such tracking remains a legal gray area.


An early breadboard design.

“This strikes me as the classic glass-is-half-empty/glass-is-half-full scenario we so often face with new technologies and privacy,” Fred Cate, a law professor at Indiana University, told Ars by e-mail. “You can think of useful applications easily and at the same time envision enormous privacy invasions—keep an eye on an older adult with Alzheimer’s or become your own FBI. And as is so often the case with the development of new technologies, you don’t get the impression from the Kickstarter site that any attention has been paid to privacy or privacy-invading uses, again something that is very common with new tools and applications.”

Brian Pascal, a legal fellow at the University of California Hastings, told Ars that inexpensive surveillance devices like TraqCloud are “inevitable.”

“Over time, technology gets smaller, cheaper, and more available to consumers, and there’s no reason to think GPS is an exception to that rule,” he wrote in an e-mail. “That said, it is awfully easy to imagine many scary examples of how a $19 consumer-grade GPS unit could be misused.

“Moreover, because you are tracking your own device’s signal, even if it is in somebody else’s bag or car, current surveillance law is likely to be irrelevant, something else that is remarkably familiar,” he added. “Ironically, the keys to whether this succeeds or fails will probably be ease of use, battery life, and reliability—certainly not privacy. I could teach a whole privacy course based on this one device.”

Further, Ruthann Robson, a law professor at the City University of New York, told Ars that users of this product may find civil lawsuits knocking at their door.

“While criminal contexts may first come to mind, there are personal injury cases, workers’ compensation, employment, and many family law cases, including divorce, custody, and abuse and neglect,” she said. “The video jokingly refers to tracking one’s ‘significant other,’ but perhaps that’s not a joke, especially when it comes to intimate partner violence. We’ve been worried about government surveillance, but in a surveilled society, we might be able to do the government’s work by watching each other”

Morwell Open Cut Fire – keeps on burning

Morwell is a city located in the Latrobe Valley area of Gippsland in the east of the state of Victoria in Australia approximately 149 km east of the state capital.

It has a population of about fourteen thousand people.

Since February 10th the Hazelwood open cut coal mine has been on fire as result of  arson in the area.     Mor2 morwell

The coal mine, which support Hazelwood power station, has been burning for two weeks and the smoke is effecting the health of the towns people.

The State Government spent $20,000 on “breathing masks”.

The immediate effects of this event will slowly abate, but in the long term this could possibly reduce the life expectancy of effected people by as much as 10 years.

The state’s Chief Health Officer,Rosemary Lester, said the air quality had not reached the trigger point for evacuating the town, but she said it was “a wise thing to take breaks from the smoke”.

Morwell schools and child care centres have stopped children going outside due to poor air quality. The Environment Protection Authority’s air quality index for Morwell East peaked at 459 at the weekend, and at times on Monday it exceeded 200. The worst rating, “very poor”, is 150-plus.

Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley said the northerly wind would help disperse the smoke around Morwell on Tuesday, but would make the fire-fighting effort more difficult in the open-cut mine.

He said the fire was about 50 per cent “out”, but this could change depending on the conditions and fire-fighting efforts on Tuesday.
