 Didn't Anyone Help This Guy?

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:

Two months ago I passed on a plea for help from someone in need of a time travelling machine. I felt sure Adequacy was was this guy's best chance at success.

Tonight I pulled my email and this popped into my inbox.

Note his requirements have changed; he no longer needs Cartesian coordinate processing, now he needs a specific polarization scheme.

In my experience, time machines need either a left- or right-hand circular polarization, not these Cartesian reference frames but maybe he's on to something here.

If you are a time traveler or alien and or in procession of alien or government technology I need your help! My case is truly genuine! I seek to work with someone who is of a good nature, someone I can call my savior as well as a friend.

My life has been severely tampered with and cursed!! I have suffered tremendously and am now dying!

I need to be able to:

  • Travel back in time.
  • Rewind my life including my age back to 4.

I am in great danger and need this immediately! I want to work with you in any way possible.

I am aware of two types of time travel one in physical form and the other in energy form where a snapshot of your brain is taken using either the dimensional warp or the brain snapshot device and then sends your consciousness back through time to part with your younger self. I'm almost certain the dimensional warp would be the safest and best solution. Please explain how safe and what your method involves.

I have a time machine now, but it has limited abilities and is useless without a vortex. If you can provide information on how to create vortex generator or where I can get some of the blue glowing moon crystals this would also be helpful. I am however concerned with the high level of radiation these crystals give off, if you could provide a shielding this would be helpful. I believe the vortex would have to be east-west polarized, North-south polarized vortexes are used for cross-dimensional time travel only.

If you have this technology and can help me please send me a (SEPARATE) email to:

probably aleph null times. Unfortunately, the Many Worlds interpretation of quantum physics holds true, so his return to childhood resulted in another probability branch, which we are barred from experiencing.

Can you email him to let him know?

The terms of his previous email explicitly forbid me from contacting him.

Look at Quaternions instead. I'm sure the imaginary numbers should be useful for something.

And, if all else fails, try to contact Doc Brown.
