Time travel is possible. Neddy Merrill did it in John Cheever’s “The Swimmer.” And I knew a Dutchman with olive skin and one single very long eyelash who had memories of living in a Chinese dynasty, hundreds of years before his birth.
And then there’s Elon Musk, who I believe will scientifically prove time travel.
Thank you for writing this book.
Time travel is absolutely possible. Dreaming is a small sample of what it feels like to return a previous life or visit an earlier time. Moving back and forth between worlds and/or times has been written about by Aristotle and, later, Einstein. I believe “lucid dreaming” is just a sample of the adventures we could have if we were willing to allow for our many possibilities. I have recently spent a great deal of sleeping and waking time walking with Alexander the Great and I have to say it stimulates the writing genes! I look forward to this book.
Congratulations, Therese. You’re our lucky winner!
Sorry, but Big Foot is not real. No more real than Loch Nessie! If Big Foot were real, we would have captured him by now.
I’m a “I have to see it to believe it.” If I ever see Big Foot or travel in time, I’ll be a believer.
I look forward to reading this book. It looks interesting.
