People wonder what it is like to time travel and here is my answer. Going back one hundred years feels a lot like being in an old movie. There were some cars. However, it looks a lot different than now. This is NYC 1911 and this is close to what you see.

The original video was made on Saturday August12th 1911.....I remember seeing the scenes in that video over 20 years ago on a VHS tape.....My story starts with Preston Nichols in 2017, he was in the process of building a full sized version of his time-travelling device called the Delta Time Generator, that I mentioned about here on Paranormalis…...Preston however discovered he was lacking a large amount of Surface Barrier Transistors, that are vital for "time-bending", and he needed them to complete the full scale version to transport him back to 1911......And that was how I became involved......Fortunately I had discovered and purchased over 2000 of those Surface Barrier Transistors laying in a electronics shop warehouse near to where I live, and I contacted Preston Nichols about them.....Also amazingly in that shop, I discovered the original Zero Time Generator (ZTG) that Tesla made which was fitted into the Eldridge Destroyer Escort Ship DE-173, that became the time-travelling "Philadelphia Experiment" on Thursday August12th 1943.....These discoveries of mine were sufficient enough to allow me to go along with Preston Nichols back to 1911, especially more so infact, as someone had stolen his own ZTG a few weeks earlier!!....He told me he wanted to meet Tesla somewhere in NYC on that date 1911, I believed it was to show Tesla the ZTG that he (Tesla) had first thought up of and actually built in1919!!!...

Nichols explained how the ZTG operated by mechanically and inertially, locking spatially onto our Earth, the solar system, our galaxy, the milky way, through to the centre of our universe, to reference where time per se, first began just after the Big Bang (Zero Time).....The ZTG is a "guidance system" for plotting our way to other time periods, and then safely back to the time period we started from....The time period chosen was Saturday August 12th 1911....Preston Nichols explained to me that the original ZTG would have been "metaphysically" encoded with the August 12th 1943 Philadelphia Experiment time period.....Therefore getting to 1911, we would first have to return back to that 1943 experiment time period, and then program the Delta Time Generator to go back to Saturday August12th 1911...Preston said its sort of like electronically "hopping backwards from 2017 to 1943 and then hopping back to 1911"....The reverse applied for returning back to 2017...We arrived in NYC on Saturday August 12th 1911 at 1400 hours, leaving at 1900 hours...I did notice the Swedish guy with his camera, recording the above video, I recollected it from the VHS tape I first saw over 20 years ago.....

Shortly after returning back to 2017, Preston Nichols Spacetime laboratory was raided by the FBI....They took everything Preston had owned in it , including the full sized version of the DTG we used, plus the Tesla ZTG!!!....The following day the US Secret Service turned up at his home wanting to look through all of his electronic equipment.....After telling them that the FBI had taken everything the day before, and furthermore after 2 more hours of the Secret Service on the phone chatting to the FBI, they finally went away empty handed without saying a word...…......What can I say about NYC in 2011?...It was wonderful, the air was fresh, the people were happy and the ladies were especially physically fit, as you will notice in the video, judging from the lovely upright way they walked, and how narrow their hips were!!!....Hips so narrow had to be worked on!.....I did happen to literally bump into one of those ladies who was very fit and gorgeous for her age and I took her to a coffee house for a drink and a chat, on the excuse that I had stupidly startled her by bumping into her...

She seemed very interested that I was an Englishman in New York (Is that the title of a 1980s song from Police?) and she asked why I was in the USA, I obviously had to lie to her, which I hate doing to lovely ladies....She explained to me that she had moved to live in England after meeting a man who lived there, and they got married in England and had one son who will be 30 years old by now.....She very sadly and unfortunately had to leave her son back in England with his father, returning back to America on her own....She quickly changed the subject and humorously took the piss out of what I was wearing, telling me that the particular style of clothing I was wearing, went out of date 10 years earlier!!..... .When Preston went out looking for early 1900s US male clothing for us to wear, he was unaware of how fashion conscious the "privileged" ladies of 1911 actually were!!

Preston "buzzed" my modern day radio transceiver, I had to make an excuse to Jane, the gorgeous woman I was with in the coffee house, to say that I needed the toilet, so I could speak to Preston...She humorously asked me, where are you taking the toilet to?, I laughed out loudly....On my return to Jane, I mentioned that I would have to be leaving in the next few hours or so....She genuinely looked sad and I have to admit that I was feeling sad also....We both said it seemed as if we had known each other for years....I was very surprised when she asked if I would like to have a farewell drink back at her room in the posh hotel Ritz-Carlton in Manhattan, she said its only about a 15 minute cab drive to get there, I agreed!!…. We spent 2 wonderful and unforgettable hours together, during which time she gave me her name and address to contact her, if i ever wanted to....She also gave me her cigarette case to keep and obviously I treasure it...She told me she bought it years previously but now wanted me to have it....I gave her my Tesla disc to keep that I bought in 2002, and used to hang it around my neck...

On a final note, no matter how much I have tried, sadly I know I will never be able to return to 2011 again....One thing did intrigue me after Jane told me her full name was Jane Davison.....I automatically asked her what her sons name was, she quizzically looked at me and said William, why?.....I made up a silly reason as to why I asked.....My own grandfather was actually a William Davison born in 1881 in England and he had no memory of who his mother was, he only found out from his father that his mother was 28 years old, before she left the family, to go and live back in America!....In 1911 my grandfather was 30 years old, and if he was Janes son, she would be 58 years old in 1911....We were laughingly discussing our ages in her hotel bed and she did tell me she was nearly 58 years old!!.....However, all this is pure conjecture on my part, that iam somehow physically related to Jane....Its just plain and simple coincidence!!…What do you guys think? ;) :D..

I think you are practicing to become a Democrat. Looks like a really nice false narrative.

@Einstein - Forgive me for asking, but what is it that TimeFlipper said that makes you suspect he would like to become a Democrat?
The following excerpt: "These discoveries of mine were sufficient enough to allow me to go along with Preston Nichols back to 1911"

Of course I don't believe TimeFlipper actually time traveled. So that would make his statement a false narrative. Exactly the kind of stuff that a Democrat would do.

You have given me the most offensive of offensives to say that ME, MI, MOI, ICH, the TimeFlipper, highly trusted elder on Paranormalis could EVER even consider for 1 microsecond ,of becoming a Democrat!! :mad:, assuming of course that I was Amercan….I have enlisted the well known climate activist Greta Thunberg, to display my anger :LOL:

@Einstein Of course it was ClassicalFan who was correct that my posting was indeed, a joke! :LOL:..
I was a little disappointed that not more of our other members called me out for being disingenuous, i think some of them would have thought FFS, the old guy TimeFlipper has gone completely bonkers!! :ROFLMAO:..

There was another reason...Over the past couple of months I have been contemplating writing short stories for magazines, and my story would have been one example of what I would have written....I would love yourself, ClassicalFan, Mayhem and any other member to "critique" pronounced krit-eek the story, simply meaning pointing out errors, bad grammar, needing more information or anything else you disliked about the story....Your inputs will be greatly appreciated (y):)..

What other ideas have you got for stories @TimeFlipper ?
Would you be kind enough my old friend, to critique the story I wrote on here please?...Tell me what you dislike about it, or simply take the piss out of it.....It is important to me that our members tell me what is not right about the story in their own opinion...Obviously I prefer our members doing that compared to asking family members or friends or even neighbours who have no real grasp of Time-Travel like we all have on Paranormalis :)..

I will be preparing other Time-Travel stories that i will be posting on here in a few months time, please be patient with me :)..

Hello, thank you for sharing this amazing video.
My thought is that, according to my fast research on the internet, but I am not expert about video cameras, the first 16 mm was invented by Kodak in 1923. That's food for thoughts..

@TimeFlipper not a bad story, one comment you could always make up some new characters. Not sure if a magazine would take on a certain
Preston Nicholls rendition maybe substitute another name even though it can still be somewhat based on the events.

I wasnt presuming that would be submitted, as we havent seen what other ideas you had in mind.

A magazine might latch on to a something like inserting new tech into the story rather than previous known or documented events.

Always an unknown undiscovered technology might arouse interest.

Just my thinking though good luck man.

Thank you for the very relevant remarks my old friend, yes I would certainly have to change Preston Nichols name into a "Professor Something", that's for certain (y):D….You got me thinking about the pseudonym "Rheinart" which was only used in reference to time-travel, it originated in the Philadelphia Experiment Book published 1978 and used in the 1984 movie of the same name....It would certainly intrigue any magazine short story readers who were into time-travel and already knew about the PX ;)...

You were very correct about the undiscovered technology, i would imagine lots of people have seen Back To The Future trilogy and the first time-travel movie from 1960, The Time Machine, including the 2002 follow up movie of the same name...There were also many good time-travel movies made over the past 20 years....Iam tempted into using the DTG technology, obviously using a simple explanation of how it works, after all not all short story readers are members of Paranormalis! :D….What about naming it, The Integrated Circuit Technology, or the Jump To and Fro Technology?? :unsure:……Do you have any thoughts for a plot my old friend? :cool:..

If any other member wishes to offer suggestions or plots for my short stories, please hop aboard the TimeFlippers time ship stories :coffee::)..

During my time selling cars there was never any "exotic car" as such...I was only aware of the existence of a De-Lorian car from the Back To The Future movie trilogy...After i retired i did see an advert in the old Exchange and Mart magazine that was advertising a De-Lorian, sat in a Car Showroom for £8000...I was very interested in it, but decided to use that amount of money towards buying another property...I appreciate you coming up with a plot addition, thanks :)..
