Let's Time Travel by Karen Michelle Nutt @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #timetravel

Is time travel possible?


In J. W. Dunne’s, An Experiment with Time, he theorizes that time is forever present—the past, the present and the future are going on all at the same time. He also believed that in our dreaming state we could roam free from different points in time. We exist in on two levels of existence, both inside and outside of time, giving the notion of what is meant to be immortal—that nothing dies. If this theory were true it may explain the religious aspects of eternity.


This is an interesting concept that has fascinated me on many levels. The Aboriginal people of Australia believe that dream-time exists at the same time as present, past and future. The Kabbalah Taoism believe the waking consciousness allows awareness of time, but is limited in understanding it completely. However, in the sleeping state, the mind can wander on many dimensions of time and space.


Perhaps Déjà vu could be thought of as form of time travel. It is a precognition, clairvoyance or an extra-sensory perception of what life could be, giving the person a choice and perhaps changing the future. It could also be thought of as a prophecy from a dream, also giving us a glimpse of the future.


Many science fiction stories touch on black holes as a possible way to time travel. In 1916 Einstein introduced the theory of relativity. Nathan Rosen collaborated with him and came to the conclusion that relativity formalism is a curved spaced structure. It can join space and time through a tunnel-like curve, giving a shortcut through space. The Einstein-Rosen Bridge is the prediction of black holes using Einstein’s equations and the possibility of time travel.


No one knows for sure, but authors have sent their heroes and heroines to the past and to the future with one stroke of a pen or with their fingers flying over a keyboard. The idea of time travel has always intrigued me with the question of “what if?” The possibilities are endless.


“Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of a clock. Across the barriers of time and the ultimate destiny, love persists, for the home of the beloved, absent or present, is always in the mind and heart.” ~Mary Parrish~


Where would you time travel and why would you go? What would you use to get there? A magic stone, a mist, or maybe a storm. You tell me.

  1. I heard another theory about Deja Vu in regards to reincarnation stating that the person who is experiencing an episode of Deja Vu is actually having a memory the same situation they had experienced in a previous life.
    Einstein also said of time travel that you would have go faster than the speed of light and the faster a body moves, the more mass it gains and, therefore, the mass would be to great to travel.
    No matter what the science is I love time travel stories. I love the whole idea of it and wish I had a Delorian (I know that spelling is all wrong.) Time travel stories are my favorite.
    The only story I haven't read in your time travel list is At The Stroke of Midnight. All of those I've read are wonderful stories.
    I'd love to go back just enough in time to spend an ordinary day with my parents enjoying their company. I would use my bloodstone ring my parents gave me on my 21st birthday. My dad and I had the same birthday.
    All the best to you Michelle. I loved this blog.

    1. Sarah,
      Thanks so much for popping in to say hi. Interesting theory about Déjà vu and reincarnation. So glad you enjoyed my time travel stories. At the Stroke of Midnight is one of my first short stories.

      What a nice thing it would be to travel back and just spend a day with your family. Very sweet.

  2. Regency England, but just for a visit; I like a/c and indoor plumbing too much to permanently relocate. My portal, a garden arch.

    1. Denise,
      I'm with you on the a/c and indoor plumbing. lol Love the idea of a garden arch as a portal. Maybe the garden arch was built with Fae magic. :)

  3. Sorry I'm late, Karen. There is much food for thought in your post and it bears reading again. I am fascinated with the idea of living on more than one level at a time, which I have heard and thought about before reading this blog. I do believe that science and supernatural events are compatible with religion and I enjoy exploring mind-stretching ideas. Thanks for this "in-depth" post.

    1. Linda,
      Thanks so much for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed the post. Always like to hear what other think about time travel and the possibilities. :)
