Memories of a time traveler
Falmouth 24-Oct-2009
These few pages are the results of careful reading and researches starting from
the original John Titor posts stil available on the Internet.
It is very easy to consider Titor story an hoax, as most of his prophecies about
the future are now long overdue.
On the other side, it is possible to col ect al the hints and clues seeded here and
there on his posts, and line them up into a more interesting explanation about the
universe and history we live into.
I hope you find this book of interest and inspiration.
This e-book is freely distributable with quotation of the author:

Chapter 1
A theory for a broader multiverse

Things are gonna slide, slide in all directions
There won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure any more
Leonard Cohen – The Future
One single universe existed before the Big Bang.
This si
“ ngle quantum state” universe was ful y isotropic in its constitution, and it
was point like shaped.
Had it existed, for argument sake, a pair of two distinguishable points within it, it
would not have been total y isotropic.
After it exploded into a proper universe, an unlimited multiverse matrix was
This starting event is cal ed Big Bang, and the time, as we experience here and
now on the Earth, is the by product of distinguishable points of the same universe
being observed by us.
Actual y, every single possible quantum state universe is happening within a
broad multiverse matrix (see image 1).
On universe worldlines, time normal y flows from past to future.
Dif erent choices al ow people on Earth to move between dif erent worldlines,
always in accordance with the p
“ ast to future
” standard rule.
Time loop travels or short cuts from present to past or from present to future can
also be at ained within special conditions.

Ef icient and control ed manipulation of time, or time travel between worldlines
can be achieved by manipulating spin and mass of microsingularities, point like
black holes whose mass is in the range of just few proton masses.
The traveler and the time machine with the microsingularities are displaced along
together during the time trip.
This conveniently al ows the traveler to reuse that same machine when he needs
to go back to his original starting time and home worldline.
When time traveling, say from A0 (here and now), to the past B, nobody can ever
end into exactly his past of origin B0 (the past as it could possibly be recal ed
from somebody in A0), but eventual y to one pret y close, similar, almost
undistinguishable from it, cal ed past B1, depending on the accuracy of the time
traveling device.
If the divergence is too high, the travel er wil reach past BN, which is the
denomination of a far away worldline, where the world doesn't look anything
similar to what is recal ed from A0.
After the testing of time travel devices passed the safety criteria to host humans
within a cockpit, some missions were proposed to gather information and items
from near past and future.
The first "human safe" machine developed was the C202 (clock type Caesium,
20 gravitometers, 2 main atomic clocks).
It only had a break away time of +/- 15 YRS, so the missions accomplishable
were very limited "in time".
The technology yet was progressing and promising, and the TORAH Foundation
started to propose and study the feasibility of missions not just limited to physic
experiments, but to aimed to more practical results into a post nuclear world.

The C202 unit and al other time machines are basical y a box, 3 x 1 x 1 cubic
feet in size, and about 300 lbs in weight.
Most of the weight of the unit is made of steel and wires to keep the two
microsingularities confined into magnetic fields.
A few plugs are used to connect the hand held unit and the related gravitometers.
Typical y the unit is fit ed into the trunk of a car, so to make the unit transportable
“ t any time .

The gravitometers are fit ed in fixed positions onto the vehicle frame, and the
traveler sits on the driving seat, checking the parameters of the unit with the hand
held control er.
Not just the car with the traveler and the C202 unit, but also some inches of soil
below the car are d
“ isplaced
” during the time travel.
The shape of the useful displaceable volume generated by the unit looks like a
podgy banana few meter long, so there is no way around the accidental
displacement of soil and rubble during the trip.
The first group of time travelers was made by 5 scientists. They repeatedly used
the C202 unit to map WWI I events from 2013 and 2016.
These pioneers used the C202 unit to only map historical events of the near past
and future, and to check for consistencies or divergences from the original
worldline A0.
Huge amount of data was col ected by these forerunners, breaking new grounds
in physic and technology.
Most of al , these machines resulted very useful to recover tools and items lost
after the war, and they are stil of much use in this sense nowadays.
Al books about time travel are stil using the original nomenclature to map
A0 is for here (this worldline, 0) and now (this day, this hour, A), where the
mission control exists and where the time trip begins.

B0 is the past (or C0 when to the future), as it can possibly (or wil possibly) be
recal ed from an observer (mission control) in A0.
This target point B0 (or C0) can never be theoretical y reached in a time travel
trip without sweeping away most of know physic.
B1 is a more feasible "drop of " worldline, which can be reached by the travel er
when going back to the past (or C1 when in the future).
B0 and B1 must be as similar as possible, in order for the travel er to operate in a
consistent and familiar historical environment.
BN (or CN when in the future) is a very divergent worldline, far away to what can
possibly be recal ed from A0.
Missions into too divergent worldlines are usual y dif icult to accomplish, as
nothing looks or is as it should be.
When using a time machine as a ship for space exploration purposes, the trip
vector is no more described by just two let ers such as A0.
A third parameter (location) is added.
A space trip usual y looks like "A0 (EARTH) – 2HR - C1(MOON)". This means
that a ship displaces itself from here and now on the Earth and reappears in a
close, 2 hour later, consistent future C1, on the Moon.
A typical trip to the past consists of the fol owing phases (see also image 2):
1) The traveler chooses a safe place to start the trip, it has to be a place
gravitational y stable such as caves or abandoned mines, places where the
gravitational background was not influenced by human activities in recent past
(construction sites for buildings or dams influence a lot the gravitational
background of an area when compared to the accuracy of the VGL).
2) When the place and time are set (A0), the time machine can start the trip in
VGL track.

The VGL (Variable Gravity Lock), takes a snapshot of the gravitational
environment around the machine when the trip starts, and it conditions the
microsingularities, so that the time machine and the traveler are always on the
same "spot of Earth".
Without the VGL tracking for the Earth al the time, the machine along with the
traveler wil be soon displaced in the middle of empty space, as the Earth and the
Sun rotate away from the traveler, standing stil on that same spot of universe.
The accuracy of the VGL depends on the accuracy and quantity of the caesium
clocks and gravitometers monitoring the environment around the machine.
A quantic computer monitors the data from the instruments and continuously
recalculate and redirect the axis and spinning of the singularities trough the
electron injection manifold.
The time speed is another interesting parameter:
The newer C204 unit at max power runs at 10 years/hour (10 years outer space
displacement every hour experienced inside the time machine).
A great deal of X and Gamma rays is also generated and this radiation must be
vented out as much as possible.
The traveler eventual y experiences a 2 G force pushing him on the seat when
travel ing at ful speed.
Whilst travel ing, you would only see dark outside the vehicle, and sometimes
some bursts of X rays may flare up, especial y when modulating travel speed,
dropping in or dropping of .
A secondary microsingularity is used to stabilize gravity inside the cockpit, and
also to deflect the X rays generated by the primary microsingularity.
3) When the arrival time is reached in the past (or in the future), the machine
stops the spinning of the microsingularities. The traveler along with the time
machine is "dropped of " into the arrival worldline B1, and he can final y sh
“ ow
up .

4) The traveler then stays, lives and interacts into the arrival drop of worldline
As a consequence of his staying, the residence worldline B1 starts to diverge
from what would have been, this divergent worldline is usual y cal ed B2.
The longer the traveler stays, and the more the interactions he has, the greater
the induced divergence for B2.
5) When the mission into B1-B2 is accomplished, the traveler wil have to revert
back to his origin (A0) where mission control is awaiting for him to come back.
In order to do this properly, he wil first have to travel back in time to his arrival
point, from B2 back to B1.
Again, he wil necessarily miss that exact spot B1 as the induced divergence wil
drop him of into B3 instead.
The divergence between B1 and B3 is usual y very low, since a mission (from B1
to B2) usual y last weeks or days, whilst the break time of nowadays machines is
in the range of decades.
6) From B3, the travel er can final y go back to A0 by simply backtracking the
travel parameters recorded during the original trip from A0 to B1.
The VGL does not need to track the presence of the Earth during this last trip, it
wil just happen, if the trip A0-B1 was right in the first place, that the Earth wil be
where it is supposed to be, at the drop of point A3.
When the backtracking to A0 is over, the traveler wil appear into worldline A3,
consistent to the original A0 one as much as B1 point was consistent to B3.
If there is the suspect that the divergence between A3 and A0 is not negligible,
the travel er can stal the time machine to chase a bet er VGL match (lower
gravitational divergence), before dropping of into A3.
A time machine is stal ing when its time displacement is equal to zero, which
means that it continuously drops back one time cycle and subsequently drops
