"True Time Travel Stories: Amazing Real Life Stories In The News"

This small book is available free for Kindle Prime customers, and I recommend it as a good introduction to "alternative viewpoints" regarding time. Our culture views "time" as an absolute, a non-negotiable past, present, and future--in that order. Physicists (and careful students of alternative realities) know that "time"--if not exactly an illusion--is not the absolute that we perceive it to be. (Students of the Seth material are instructed that both time and space are illusions, not absolute laws of reality.)

Along this line: a recent article on retrocausality and the possibility that the future can influence the past. While science is pondering this possibility on a quantum scale, students of consciousness suspect that it happens on the macro level as well. Our experience of time is not absolute... Just as there are glitches in the Matrix, time can stand still, flow backwards, repeat, skip centuries, and bleed through the decades--as Richard Bullivant demonstrates through a number of intriguing accounts.

It was my personal observation of time anomalies as a teen that drove my quest into the whole alternative field, and it still fascinates me. I believe that there is a part of our consciousness that exists outside of chronological time. We aren't really aware of it--we remain stuck on the flypaper of time--but, if there *is* a part of our consciousness outside of time, it would leave traces, signs, in the form of precognition and synchronicities.

On a more dramatic level: One of the most remarkable aspects of remote viewing (beyond the fact that it even exists at all) is that chronological time is completely irrelevant to the remote viewer. The remote viewer can accurately view a target "before" it is even selected (through double-blind tests where the target is randomly selected many hours after the RV session); the remote viewer can accurately describe an event at a target that will happen well into the future (though the viewer experiences it as happening "now"); the remote viewer can immediately view a target that, in physical terms, is lightyears away. Time, and space, simply do not exist to the skilled remote viewer.

And, finally, a personal reminiscence--Anyone who grew up in the late '60s and early '70s surely remembers one aspect of the Kennedy assassination that's practically forgotten today: an explosion of popular articles listing a number of striking similarities between the Kennedy assassination of 1963 and the Lincoln assassination of 1865. I don't remember most of them anymore (they seemed very compelling at the time, though). The popular consciousness seemed to draw a link between the two events, separated by one hundred years. There might be something to it all, though. Looking holistically at the two events, how both occurred at the nexus of great social and civil change, it can be argued that the two assassinations were not two separate occurrences but rather two parts of the same "event"--separated by "time" and performed by different actors. If evolution can unfold over millions of years, why can't a seminal and liminal event unfold over a hundred?
