Thanks for your interest in my friend's time travel accident. If you want to
post it on your "time travel" htm page, you may. The following is a narrative
Well, it started last year around the middle of October when a friend of mine
decided to build a shortwave receiver for his step-son as a Christmas gift.
About a week, or so, after he finished his son's radio, he decided to build a
radio for himself. However, he didn't want just any old radio-he wanted a
To save on verbosity, I won't go into the construction with much detail.
However, I will say that the design could produce extremely high frequencies
(to include the electromagnetic spectrum of light).
I don't think we realized that at the time the radio was being built. But
after studying schematics of assorted magnetrons (after the temporal
displacements), we realized that this radio could go into that wavelength
It is interesting to note that Nikola Tesla was quoted as saying that by
producing a "wall of light" (no doubt with electromagnetic energy) space and
time could be manipulated.
Continuing, one night he was dicking with the radio for the better part of a
late-night/early morning jaunt. That particular night (well, actually the
early morning hours of the next day) it was raining and there was a local
electrical storm in progress.
About 3 A.M., all of a sudden, the loudspeaker of his radio started making
this God-awful obnoxiously loud noise. Since he was living in an apartment,
he immediately cut the speaker leads to the speaker so as not to p.o. his
Once that was done, he whipped out his multimeter and started taking voltage
checks of the circuitry. To his amazement, he was getting 44 - 45 Volts D.C.
circuit wide (the radio was built to run off of 18 Volts D.C.).
We talked about this afterwards and came to the conclusion that the aerial was
inducting lots of highly-ionized air (from the rain and electrical storm) and
thereby stepping up the voltage into the radio.
It is of interest that John Bajak, developer of the Bajak Time Travel Flux
Capacitor, claims his device operates on 44 Volts D.C. Hmmmm...
About five minutes to four in the morning, and still taking voltage checks, my
friend received a rather pronounced static discharge from the radio. He
stepped back and noticed that, just above the coils, was a very peculiar
glowing electrical field just above the center of the coils.
He mentioned that this anomaly appeared completely circular with 3-4 glowing
blue bands of light separated by bands of space. The space in between the
glowing bands seemed to be pulsating from complete transparency to semi-
We attributed this phenomena (the pulsations) to electromagnetic "needles"
(another concept that is too complex to be described right now). We thought
this field might be one of two things:
This glowing field lasted about six - seven seconds and, then, abruptly
The most amazing thing, though, was the fact that after this field
disappeared, ALL THE CLOCKS IN HIS APARTMENT HAD MOVED FROM 3:55 A.M. TO
TEN P.M.!! (...time went backwards...)
In fact, he then was able to use his "radio" to tune in our one, and only,
local radio station (1450 K.O.N.P. in Port Angeles, WA) and was just in time
to hear the beginning of the TEN O'CLOCK NEWSBROADCAST FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE!!
Anyhow, he spent the rest of his "additional" six hours taking voltage/current
checks on his radio. The multimeter was reading about 18 Volts D.C. (normal
About 3 A.M., again, the voltage levels shot up to 44 - 45 Volts D.C. and
precisely at 3:55 A.M., again, this weird glowing electrical field appeared.
This time, however, I guess he must have been expecting it to appear and,
almost as soon as it appeared, he ripped out the aerial wire. This caused the
glowing field to immediately disappear and he guesses that it was probably
present, this time, for about 1 - 2 seconds.
Anyway, this time the clocks all jumped from 3:55 A.M. to 2:30 A.M. He tuned
in K.O.N.P., again, and right around 2:45 heard the radio announcer announce
the time as "2:45 A.M. here at our station".
A few minutes after that, he unplugged his radio, got drunk, and fell asleep.
Later that day, sometime in the afternoon, he said one of his next-door
neighbors came over to ask him if he was working with any radio-transmission
equipment because his friend was watching T.V., with his A.M. radio on low
volume, a few minutes before four that morning when the reception on both his
T.V. and radio went completely screwy for about six - seven seconds. WEIRD!
When he first told me of this tale, I thought he was just so much full of you-
know-what. However, for months after that he bought every book he could find
on electromagnetics and electrodynamics and was studying these texts for hours
per day. So, maybe something really did happen. Who knows?
Hope you liked my narrative.

P.S. The one thing that puzzled both of us is that he did not meet a
chronologically younger (six hours) version of himself after the first
displacement and did not meet a chronologically younger (about 1 1/2 hours)
version of himself after the second displacement.
We pondered on this for MONTHS. Finally, we found a book entitled "Black
Holes And Time Warps - Einstein's Outrageous Legacy" (by Kip Thorne) which
seems to have answered that perplexing question.
In the book, it mentions things which seem to come close to what happened to
my friend. In the book, it is posited that what may have happened to him is
what is known as an "electromagnetic stretch".
They hypothesize that the Universe oscillates (electromagnetically at certain
fundamental, and harmonic, frequencies) not only in three dimensions but in
TIME as well and that if you could shield yourself from these oscillations
that it might be possible to arrive at different times.
They do mention that we are not aware of this process because we oscillate
along with the Universe and, therefore, never notice these oscillating time
I suppose an analogy would be thinking of being on a planet that rotates at
about 1,000 M.P.H. and sails in its solar orbit (i.e., around the sun) at just
about 67,000 M.P.H. - YET WE DON'T FEEL THE SPEED - GET IT!
- 1 - St. Elmos Fire (we dismissed this because this phenomena glows
with more of a purplish color and certainly doesn't cause completey circular,
band delimited, glowing).
- 2 - Electrical ionization of nitrogen (also dismissed because nitrogen
doesn't glow blue or produce completely circular fields).
Vanguard/KeelyNet comments - this theory is very reminiscent of one related by
the highly questionable Al Bielek where each mass aggregate is temporally and
possibly spatially or dimensionally locked to its point of creation. See the
file on Dimensional Shifts on KeelyNet.
As of 10/02/97, I received an email from the author stating that an
experimental circuit for the time travel device described above would be
posted at the following URL;
As of 10/02/97, the schematic is not online and in a subsequent email the
author indicated it was thought best not to post it because it was too
dangerous due to the frequencies used. Thanks!...>>> Jerry
