Just a traditionalist meme mate, but the drawing is a bit goofy.

This version doesn't look so creepy.

Anyway, enough of my weirdness, not trying to derail the thread.

Enigmatic, I want to apologize for judging your avatar. The character looked angry and I was surprised by it considering the last one you had which looked like a historical statue. Never the less, I should have kept my opinion on it to myself. ✌️

He does a bit yes. This has got me thinking now. There are a few photos online of Hollywood celebs who have dead ringers in the 19th century. Have you ever seen the photos? For example there's one of a man who is the image of John Travolta.

I'm also very fascinated by what is known as a "time slip." Found on a web page Countryside Books:

 


 

Quote

 

A number of curious cases, all from Kent, in which the protagonists suddenly find themselves misplaced in time and space...


It was Tunbridge Wells, on the morning of 18th June 1968, and an elderly lady, Mrs Charlotte Warburton, went shopping with her husband in the town.

 

They decided to go their separate ways for a while and to meet up later. Unable to find a particular brand of coffee from her usual grocer she went into a supermarket in Calverley Road. As she entered the shop she saw a small café through an entrance in the left-hand wall. She had never before realised that there was a café there. It was rather old-fashioned with wood panelled walls. There were no windows and the room was lit by a number of electric bulbs with frosted shades. There was at the time, she thought, nothing especially odd about the scene. "Two women in rather long dresses were sitting at one table and about half a dozen men, all in dark lounge suits, were sitting at other tables further back in the room,' she said. All the people seemed to be drinking coffee and chatting ... a normal sight for a country town at 11 o'clock in the morning.

 

Mrs Warburton did not stay but she certainly did not recognise anything amiss either then or indeed for several days. Even the rather formal and slightly off-key clothing made no immediate impression on her. Nor did the fact that although the customers were talking there was no noise from them that caused her to question her senses. Nor did she notice that there was no smell of coffee.

There is clearly something strange here. Yet without questioning the circumstances in which she found herself, Mrs Warburton blithely left the café and went to meet her husband. And she did not suggest to him that the scene in the café seemed in any way odd.

 

When they came to Tunbridge Wells on their next shopping expedition Mrs Warburton decided to take her husband to the café. Or rather she hoped to take him there. But of course they never did find the place, though they searched the street up and down.

 

No, they were told in the supermarket, there was no café there. She must be in the wrong building. It was then that they learned about the Kosmos Kinema which had stood on the site of the supermarket. It had had a small café. They were directed to the Tunbridge Wells Constitutional Club where the steward told them that at one time the Constitutional Club had owned the premises adjoining the Kosmos which was now incorporated into the supermarket. The club had had an assembly room in those days and to the rear a small bar with tables for refreshments. Mrs Warburton's description tallied exactly with the club's old refreshment room.

 

The bar, the cinema and the assembly room had all vanished years ago, Mrs Warburton was told. Yet, on 18th June 1968, she had stepped into the past and like others involved in time-slips had accepted without question the place in which she found herself. Retrospective clairvoyance, it is called. Whatever it is, it is mighty odd to contemplate.

 

Another time-slip incident took place in Kent some years earlier. In 1935 Dr E.G. Moon, a very down-to-earth Scots physician with a practice in Broadstairs, was at Minster in Thanet visiting his patient, Lord Carson, who lived at Cleve Court. After talking to Carson, the doctor left his patient and made his way downstairs into the hallway. His mind was clearly very occupied at the time with the instructions he had given the nurse about the prescription he had left for Carson. At the front door Dr Moon hesitated, wondering whether to go back upstairs to have another word with the nurse.

 

It was at this point that the doctor noted that his car was no longer where he had left it in the driveway. In fact, it had been parked alongside a thick yew hedge and that too was missing. Even the drive down which he had driven from the main road was now nothing but a muddy track, and a man was coming towards him.

 

The newcomer on the scene, only 30 yards from Dr Moon, was rather oddly dressed, wearing an old-fashioned coat with several capes around the shoulders. And he wore a top hat of the kind seen in the previous century. As he walked he smacked a switch against his riding boots. Over his shoulder he carried a long-barrelled gun. He stared hard at Moon. And the doctor registered the fact that the man coming towards him might have looked more at home in the 19th century.

 

Remarkably, Dr Moon seems not at the time to have been either alarmed or even mildly surprised by the changed scenery, by the quite oddly dressed man approaching him or the fact that his car was missing. What preoccupied him was the thought of Lord Carson's prescription. He simply turned away, without any concern, to go back into the house. But he did quite casually take one more look at the scene he was leaving. And now, as if by magic, the car was back where it had been and the yew hedge too. The drive was no longer a muddy track. And the man had also disappeared, back one assumes to the previous century. And it was only now that Dr Moon realised that something odd, something decidedly odd, had occurred.

 

All of this took seconds and so there is every reason to understand why Dr Moon did not immediately go out into the driveway to see where his missing car was. For the same reason it is understandable why he did not speak to the man dressed like a farm bailiff of the past. Dr Moon was drawn into some kind of accepting, hallucinatory state. When he came to - for that seems to be the best way of describing his return to his own time - he described to Lady Carson what he thought had occurred. He was anxious, however, that no word of it should come out in his lifetime for fear that his patients would begin to question his judgement. It was only after his death that the story was revealed.

It is difficult to grapple with the notion of time-slips. It may be that all past events are impressed into the fabric of buildings and that in some way and on some occasions they are released. In other words, what Mrs Warburton and Dr Moon saw were ghosts, but not solely of people but of all of their surroundings.

 

Or did Mrs Warburton and Dr Moon actually return to a real, physical past? Did they turn up as strangers, were they really the interlopers, at somebody else's present? And if so - and this is an intriguing yet unanswerable question - did some people drinking coffee one Saturday morning in a Tunbridge Wells café look up and see Mrs Warburton? Did a man dressed like a farm bailiff, walking towards Cleve Court one day well over a hundred years earlier, see a strangely dressed doctor at the front door of the house? Did the coffee drinkers ever wonder where the elderly lady had so suddenly gone? And did the farm bailiff ask himself how the oddly dressed figure in the doorway had so suddenly disappeared?

 

Strangely, Tunbridge Wells has thrown up another odd story that may or not have been a time-slip. This tale goes back to some time in the mid 19th century and it took place in the Swan Hotel in The Pantiles. Mrs Nancy Fuller and her young daughter, Naomi, on a first visit to the town, took a room at the top of the hotel, the room now Number 16. As they climbed the stairs to their room the girl's behaviour began to change. She appeared more and more agitated, closing her eyes and whispering to herself. When her mother asked her what was wrong Naomi replied that she recognised the stairway, that she had been there before. Then she came out with the astounding remark that her lover was waiting for her in the room as he had said he always would. When they entered the room the young girl went at once to the corner, calling out 'John' as though to someone standing there waiting. For a few seconds in her mother's eyes she seemed to change, to grow older, and even her clothing was that of an earlier time.

 

The story that Naomi later told her mother was that she had previously lived in this building when it was a privately owned house. This was certainly before 1835 when it became The Swan. In the days when Naomi had lived there it had been known as High House. The young girl went on to explain that she had had a love affair with a man called John, but her father had disapproved, had the young man taken away and had locked her in the room. Alone in the room, aware that she would never again see him, she had conjured up the image of John and holding the hand of her imagined lover, she had jumped to her death from the window.

 

Room 16 is haunted. There are still tales of disarranged bed covers and of chairs being moved, and tapping at the window. Some have claimed to hear the cry 'John' carried on the wind.

 

But is this an early example of a time-slip? It differs from the other accounts in that Naomi was aware of a past life and her part in it. Some have regarded this story as an instance of reincarnation. Others have seen it as déjà vu. But if reincarnation is the answer, what is it that triggers such an awareness of it? And if déjà vu, how can that come about? Perhaps it is simply a haunting resulting from a young girl's suicide. But the story is so curious that the idea of a time-slip is tempting.

 

This story is reproduced from the book, Supernatural England, by Countryside Books, which contains dozens of spooky tales featuring ghosts, poltergeists and hauntings from across the country.

Love the thread. Felt kind of sad for some reason watching the London 100 years ago. Seemed a bit more civil back then dare I say? 

 

Art bell used to love time travel stories. One bloke called in and said he walked down an alleyway and in the next road he was in the 1950s for a brief time. 

 

 

 

 

I travelled to 2022 last night. Doctor who is now a black trans non binary half computer half time lordess? 

 

Eccleston was my favourite doctor who. We all know they have a northern accent this side of the universe ?

Yes, there's something compelling about the 1920 London footage. 100 years ago- wowzas. In some ways more civil, in others not.

 

That fellow who phones into Art Bell sounds like Gary Sparrow lol.

 

You went to 2022 did you ? LOL. That sounds like next week if you ask me ha ha.

No, there'd need to be a wormhole to go back in time as a physical being, unless there's a brief time slip that randomly pops up. People only tend to be in those for a few seconds to a few minutes though. 

 

Or your consciousness goes back in time ( as I experienced). I'm pretty certain it was the Moqui Ball that sent me.

 

It was very heavily charged last night. I kept feeling moments of dizziness and pulling/lurching sensations, like I was moving but I was sitting still on my sofa ( the Moqui was sitting on my table next to my speaker. I've been putting it there next to the 1930s music to see if it picks up where I'd like to go). When I picked it up I could feel like currents in it.

 

When I went to my bedroom and left it in my sitting room all those effects stopped.

 

I'm conducting experiments to see what happens with this Moqui Ball. 

 

It's on my table again right now next to the speaker. I can feel the effects slightly again. From my experience last night it seems like it builds up over a few hours.

 

You can see a photo of it below ( taken yesterday).

 

Anyway to go back to your comment. As if any real life Gary Sparrows are going to let the government know they have time travelled!

Thank you for your reply! You must be very young talking about time travelling to the 1990s! I don't mean this as a disparagement of you by the way; you see I'm 52 , I was in my late 20s in the 1990s, and turned 30 in 1998,  and it's a funny feeling when I think of the 1990s, for a number of reasons. One is that although I'm 52 I look 30 in the face, and I don't physically feel my age. Only my silvery grey/white hair gives my true age away (physically that is, mentally I'm way ahead of how I was when I was younger) which I dye with henna.

 

So thinking back to those days is kinda weird because in one way it doesn't seem that long ago, but then when I think of 1990 being 30 years ago--woahhh. It's true that the older you get the faster time seems to go; all us middle aged, 50 somethings experience this feeling at times. I remember getting my first mobile phone- a green screen motorola in 1999 ( on the one to one network) and was one of the first in my friend of uni students to get one. One day I got a text message off my friend Joe and didn't even know what it was. It puzzled me. He mentioned to me a few days later that he'd sent me a text message and I hadn't replied, and I said I didn't know what that was lol.

 

In my opinion they should have stopped there with mobile phones- sending text messages and making a call was great. That's all you need with them. And the quality of the call was very good- hardly ever did they cut out the way they do now. I had another one when I was living in Greece in 2000 and I used to phone my mother on it, and it sounded so clear, like I was phoning her  a few streets away, and she was all that way in northern England and I was in Greece.

 

Now when I call my father on his mobile, a few miles away the bloomin thing is always breaking up.

 

I hardly use mobiles for calls these days, I use my 1967 rotary dial phone, which is clear as a bell!

 

I wasn't into the techno scene; as you might have seen from my other posts, I'm a vintage nerd and like dance band music of the 1930s and 1940s and would LOVE to go back to the 1930s and go to those dance halls/jazz clubs and see those bands play live with all those excellent singers.

 

But I did go to out to pubs, cafes and days out and it was indeed nice before everyone had these stupid smart phones in their hands. Those days you'd see people with actual cameras on days out taking photos.

 

 

 

Thanks for the reply too. 

 

Yes, I think the early iterations of information technology was fine and it should have stayed where it was. Sadly humanity and those that string humanity along always have people salivating for the next best thing. 

 

In a perverse way, I've actually enjoyed some of lockdown as it's slowed life down again. probably slightly reminiscent of the late 90s/early 2000s. the faster mobile technology has got the faster they've made our lives become. but at least it's forced everyone to slow down and take a long hard look at life of late.

It has-- but unfortunately "the devil makes work for idle hands" and recent events show that quite a few people need to be at work now!

i dont think you could travel back in time without sticking out like a sore thumb due to better health, grooming and your language not matching theirs.

You may become a trend setter though

I have told this story before on the old forum,not sure if it relates to time travel

When I was young we moved into a new area ,all bush, we were  the only house for a while in the estate,  we were up on a ridge about 400mts down the hill there was a creek then another ridge on the other side ,not many tracks just thick bush.

We had been there about 15 months ,and by that time I knew every inch of the bush and the creek for miles around.

This particular day we had a visit from an aunt uncle and two cousins,after lunch I suggested we go down to the creek for a bush walk ,I was about 11 or 12 at the time.

So off we all trotted, aunt ,uncle ,parents, cousins, and the pet dog as we got closer to the creek I thought ,that's strange I thought I could see a large sandstone rock through the trees, ,I had never noticed that before and it was directly below our house ,it just shouldn't have been there. The closer we all got the more inquisitive I became  The sand stone rock in front of the creek turned out to be a sandstone arch way over the creek about 15 foot high.The water was shin deep with a sandy bottom so my cousins myself and dog decided to walk up the creek into the arch way . By this time I'm rather confused and saying to myself how did I miss this over all this time, we went into the archway about 20 feet and on the walls were  red brown ocher drawings of animals and human hands, I didn't want to go further as it got darker as you went in ending in pitch black, when I told every one that I hadn't seen this before they thought I was winding them up.

Monday back at school I told some mates about so they came back to my place that arvo to take a look , when we got down there everything was back to normal ,no arch way and two pissed off mates for wasting their time.

This weighed on my mind for a while as you can imagine, my parents used to get the reader's digest when it was a small book and on the back page there was stories of strange things that had happened to so called readers ,I just thought that they were stories ,well I sent a letter  to them in my own hand writing and bugger me they printed it, in the story they suggested I shifted dimensions ,however I never said that, however I no longer thought they we just made up short stories any more

What happened ,I haven't got a clue. I never think about all the strange things I have seen  or have happened to me over the years   ,if I did a padded cell would surely await

Anyone heard of George Adamski?

I'm not so into alien stuff but I heard that those people living on planet mars, jupiter etc..... are actually our offsprings who can time travel.

uh oh....

 

Had a quick search as the name 'Adamski' rang alarm bells. I have said before that there is a pattern with these folks. Make of this what you will:
