We are all travellers in time.
The writings of Wilder Graves Penfield, neurosurgeon, have indicated that each time we access a memory of an event, bring that memory into our current awareness, and let it influence our current thoughts, feelings, visions and belief systems, we have thereby brought the Past into our Present and let it influence our Future. We have also created a new memory of that past event and stored it in our brain, thereby letting the Present change our memories of the Past. We have travelled in time, letting the Past influence our Present and Future, and letting the Present influence the Past, as it has been recorded in our brain.
Some theories of Quantum Physics suggest that information about even the smallest changes in energy, like the transmissions of neurons in our brains, are broadcast throughout the universe, where they influence the energy changes taking place in similar (resonant) energy forms, which in turn influence the energy changes taking place in other energy forms throughout the universe, including the transmissions of neurons in our brains. These theories give credibility to the concept that each of us humans has access to and influences memories of events located in some kind of universal memory storage bank. I like these theories because they help to explain some of the "weird" (my daughter's expression) experiences which I have had.
Near Avebury, in England, while walking through a sheep pasture with some ancient standing stones in it, my wife and I both interacted with the thoughts, feelings and visions of a number of individuals in an ancient community which my subsequent research indicated existed about 5,000 years ago. We corroborated each other's experiences, which had significant influences on both of our lives from that moment on.
While walking through the Cluny Hill woods in Northern Scotland, I interacted with the thoughts, feelings and visions of an event which seemed to have occurred about 400 years ago, judging from the clothing and demeanor of the historical participants.
While walking back to work after lunch in downtown Toronto, I suddenly had the thoughts, feelings and visions of a young man who had been hit by a car and killed, just down the street a bit, about one hour before.
While working around the family cottage early one morning, I was suddenly looking down on my 16-year-old daughter and her boyfriend, lying asleep, naked, on the pull-out bed in the family room of our home, 45 miles away. I immediately got in my car and drove home, where my daughter and her boyfriend confirmed the accuracy of the thoughts, feelings and visions which I had experienced. (This was when my daughter said, "That's weird, Dad.")
And many more similar experiences which indicated to me that we humans have the ability to access memories which are stored outside of our own heads, from anywhere in the past: from thousands of years ago, to a few milliseconds ago. Those memories influenced my Present and my Future and, by creating new memories from my interactions with those past memories, I have influenced the Past.
I have identified some common factors of those experiences, like openness, receptivity and vulnerability, and some hints as to why I accessed those particular memories, but the experiences are mostly spontaneous and gratuitous. This form of time travel has given me a number of fascinating experiences and has caused many good things to happen in my life.
