One of the things that appeared so strange to me was in how we could look at gravitational variances with scientific means. As we know now, this is being accomplished in ways that test the minds imagination, as to how we would apply these features here to earth, and beyond.

You and I know it as a time machine. Physicists, on the other hand, call it a "closed timelike curve." Below, feast on the concepts and conjectures, the dialects and definitions that physicists rely on when musing about the possibility of time travel. If this list only whets your appetite for more, we recommend you have a gander at the book from which we excerpted this glossary: Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy, by Kip S. Thorne (Norton, 1994).

Failing to move into the abstract realms of higher dimensional figurations, is one of the exploits that we can operate with in the realm of human experience? Why would we not look at these examples? So, if we have enough examples, how would this lay out in experimental context. Is the Earth not so round any more?

Now of course I will assume that the world of spacetime has been reached and understood by most readers. In so recognizing this capability of those same people I then want to re-instroduce some of the concepts that captured my mind as I delved further into string theory and the dimensional inferences that soon materialized.

Time is of your own making;
its clock ticks in your head.
The moment you stop thought
time too stops dead.
Angelus Silesius

Now much as we would like to speak about the concepts of "Time" in spacetime regard, it is very important that we extend our vocabulary in terms of what the mind will do to stretch it's capabilities when considering the abstract world of dimensional attributes. We understand well I think the limits in the strength's and weakness in terms of what we may see of the universe now. The microscopic view, within the context of a the cosmological view?
