Open Secret

“I have a secret project which adds four hours every day to the 24 hours we have. There’s a bit of time travel involved.” —Sundar Pichai

Sir Real - a series by Pierre LeducThrough a loophole in the time barrier, science journals tell the same tale as storybooks.

“The river of time may fork into rivers, in which case you have a parallel reality and so then you can become a time traveler and not have to worry about causing a time paradox.” Michio Kaku

The loophole is the language of imagination.

“Science always uses metaphor.” —James Lovelock

Metaphor is the mind’s x-ray vision.

“An attempt to visualize the fourth dimension: Take a point, stretch it into a line, curve it into a circle, twist it into a sphere, and punch through the sphere.” —Albert Einstein

It is the Open Sesame that lets us see through time’s illusions.

“The power of imagination makes us infinite.”John Muir

It makes a many-splendored thing outlast the sparkler on a ring.

“If a thing loves it is infinite.”William Blake Metaphor’s magic turns a killjoy with a scythe into a girl’s best friend.

“`If you knew Time as well as I do,’ said the Hatter [to Alice],  … ‘he’d do almost anything you liked with the clock. For instance, suppose it were nine o’clock in the morning, just time to begin lessons: you’d only have to whisper a hint to Time, and round goes the clock in a twinkling!  Half-past one, time for dinner!’”Lewis Carroll

Among the myriad illusions we perceive through the language of imagination, the metaphoric loophole may be a wormhole, a rabbit hole, or a moth hole in the wool over our eyes,.

“It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.” Bill Watterson Permission to believe this true tall tale may be found in a storybook.

“I can find my biography in every fable that I read.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Or a science journal.

“Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.”—Stephen Hawking

Or a Kama Sutra. 

“Love is the magician that pulls man out of his own hat.” —Ben Hecht

Or at home in the haloed hollow.

“Everywhere you hang your hat is home. Home is the bright cave under the hat.” —Lance Morrow 

For a timeless view of reality, watch this movie with your hat off and your ears on.

“Hey sky, take off your hat, I’m on my way!” —Valentina Tereshkova
