UFOs From Time and Space
By Gene Steinberg
We fans of sci-fi realize that it’s not just about what might happen in the future, about trips to and from other planets and stars, and the sometimes warlike interactions with alien beings. Taking voyages through time is yet another tantalizing possibility.
Perhaps the originator of time travel tales was H.G. Wells, whose “The Time Machine” was published way back in 1895. It has also been made into motion pictures, and formed the backdrop of such TV shows as “Warehouse 13,” where their version of Wells was a woman.
In this novel, a scientist identified as the ‘Time Traveler” takes a voyage that places him hundreds of thousands of years into the future, where he meets up with the Eloi, a band of simple, peaceful, happy, almost childlike adults. They subsist on fruits.
Every so often some of these people are kidnapped by evil cannibalistic beings who reside in underground caves, known as the Morlocks.
Now in passing, the Morlocks may appear to resemble Richard Shaver’s infamous “deros,” in some respects. Indeed, Shaver claimed that Wells based his novel on those evil creatures.
That was just the beginning, and I can only scratch the surface here.
Many of you are no doubt familiar with a TV series, “Quantum Leap,” which premiered in 1989 and lasted five seasons. The series was created by Donald P. Bellisario, who is also famous for helping to create “NCIS” and its spinoffs.
In “Quantum Leap,” Scott Bakula appears as Dr. Sam Beckett, a scientist who travels through time to right wrongs.
Such a plot device is used to a more humorous effect in DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow,” a weekly romp of a show that features a number of would-be super heroes who travel in the “waverider,” which can traverse both space and time. Although their mission is to restore time anomalies and prevent its impact to the future, the crew just as often messes things up in trying to do the right thing, thus creating even more anomalies to repair.
In passing, one of the main characters is Ray Palmer, as portrayed by Brandon Routh (who also appeared as the man of steel in “Superman Returns”). Palmer has invented a robotic suit, similar to the one in Iron Man, with which he, as ATOM, can miniaturize himself.
In case you’re wondering, the character first originated in a comic book that debuted in 1961. And, yes, the name of the protagonist was meant to honor the real Ray Palmer.
Other DC Comics characters also fiddle with the timestream. The Flash uses his “speed force” powers to travel back through time to try to prevent his mother from being murdered by a character later revealed to be the “Reverse Flash.” But the attempt to right this wrong has its own nasty effects, and the Flash’s efforts to undo the damage are, as fans of the CW TV show and comic books know, rather imperfect.
“Timecop,” from 1994, depicts a future in which a Time Enforcement Commission is created to prevent criminals from altering the timeline to their own advantage. It relies, once again, on the theory that if someone changes anything in the past, it will impact the future in unpredictable ways.
This is the common “paradox” that governs theories of time travel, that it’s evidently not something one should mess with.
Then again, is it at all possible that the alterations to the timeline are somehow meant to be? Or do such acts create yet another reality in which events proceed differently, whereas nothing changes in the original timeline.
The danger of altering the timeline was also used as a plot device in one of the best of the early “Star Trek” episodes, entitled, “The City on the Edge of Forever,” first broadcast in 1967. Here, Captain Kirk and Spock travel to the 1930s to rescue Dr. McCoy, who accidentally falls into a time portal while under the influence of a dangerous drug.
In the past, Kirk meets and falls in love with a woman who is destined to have a huge impact in the peace movement of the day. Kirk soon discovers a frightening truth, that he must allow that woman to die in order to save the future.
One theory about UFO reality is that these objects are piloted by time travelers from our future. Their mission may just be to observe the past, but it may also be possible that they are here to alter it somehow to prevent some disaster in their own time.
But if such changes occur, how would we be impacted? Would we just live through those changes as if nothing has happened? Is it at all possible that some of you might just remember the timeline before it was altered? Maybe that explains the so-called “Mandela Effect” phenomenon, in which people remember past events vividly but differently.
Is it all due to the flaws in human memory, or is something else at work here?
And if such changes were indeed made, how would you actually prove it if you just went on with your lives without being aware of how your reality was constantly being altered?
Well, except for those who recalled the way things were.
This is all theoretical, and we still don’t know whether it’s even possible for future time travelers to change anything. As I suggested, perhaps every action they take is what the fates preordained. In other words, that’s how it’s supposed to be.
I suppose traveling from the past to the future would have less impact, since there would be no prior history to alter. But what if the time travelers, realizing that a past event caused havoc in the future, attempted to return to their own time to change things so it all never happened?
And around and around it goes. Indeed, time travel itself may never be proven. But if time itself is an illusion, anything is possible. I can think of a few things I’d like to change…
