Affordable Time Travel At Last

In an interview with this dashing reporter, scientist Charles Gramlich, who described himself as only “half-mad,” spoke at length about his years of dedicated work on the time travel conundrum.  His tinkering with wormholes and string theory led nowhere until, in the summer of 2010, he realized he had been approaching the problem all wrong.  “Physics and engineering can only take you so far,” Gramlich said. “The breakthrough came when I finally grokked that only the ‘mind’ possesses the required energy field necessary to generate  a true temporal distortion. It’s also much cheaper,” he added.

After looking  up about half those words in the dictionary, and after getting Professor Gramlich to explain the rest, your distinguished reporter finally understood.  I immediately took a little jaunt through time with the good Professor, visiting first the old American West, and then leaping far into the future to a planet as yet unknown to current human knowledge. Should you wish to follow in our pioneering footsteps, simply read Killing Trail, by the author Charles Allen Gramlich (no relation), and follow that with Under the Ember Star, by the same author.  Both books are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

This points out your eclecticism very nicely.

bloody hilarious! :)

I grokked the concept a while ago, and took those splendid aforementioned journeys. I recommend those travels to anyone seeking a little gritty action and exotic locales. :)

And it takes mental power in my books to effectively teleport, so that theory makes sense to me.

Hilarious and indeed cheaper than a TARDIS!

Patti, I have always wanted to be eclectic. I even wrote a song to Alice Cooper's tune about how "I wanna be eclectic."

Laughingwolf, glad you enjoyed, man.

Bernard, you da man!

Alex, cool.

Deka, :)

Very clever, Charles. I hope you have a ton of buyers.

At 5:46 PM, Blogger Charles Gramlich said...

Oscar, I try. Thanks.

Oh, come on. Time travel is easy. Now dimension hopping, that's a tough one. ;-)

At 9:37 PM, Blogger Travis Cody said...

I love your creative advertising.

I don't know that I've ever grokked. Is it painful?

At 2:41 AM, Blogger Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Charles, it's not going to be long before I follow in your "pioneering footsteps" and read "Killing Trail" and "Under the Ember Star" and I think you should post these advertising gems on your Amazon and B&N page.

Awesome post!

At 10:15 AM, Blogger Charles Gramlich said...

Ty, my next problem to solve!

Travis Cody, it can be, especially if you read "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Heinlein.

Prashant, I did put them up on facebook, but not on the Amazon and B&N pages. Didn't think about that. Thanks for the idea!

Greg, thankee!

your imagination is interesting, instructive, and much fun!

Cloudia, thankee for the kind words.

"Dashing reporter, scientist Charles Gramlich...."


I am toying with the idea of a man who has done something morally terrible. Sufffers the karma.

Which led me,somehow of the man trying to find a way out. Quantum Mechanics?...Could he have done the right thing and not the wrong hing?... Somehow expunge the evil act?
Do quanta work? Does quantum care?
Does anybody really understand quantum theory?
It would be nice to find an alternative outcome to my fictional sinner.
I gotta start seriosly reading your books, Charles.

At 12:54 PM, Blogger Charles Gramlich said...

Ivan, anyone who understands Quantum Mechanics is probably suffering enough for Karma!

At 8:10 PM, Blogger The Golden Eagle said...

That was awesome. And I guess you can't really beat inexpensive temporal distortion . . .

At 6:51 AM, Blogger the walking man said...

I thinkk the reporter needs to sit lotus on the throne of Buddha and contemplate the different dimensions the professor has taken him through and in the end if he can unfold himself he should read, the common understanding of particle theory and string movement presented by the professor. science and spirituality are the same when mixed correctly as they are in the professors lab notes presented here.

At 8:46 AM, Blogger Charles Gramlich said...

Golden Eagle, a major breakthrough, for sure. That Professor Gramlich is an amazing guy. :)

Mark, It is clear the reporter has much to learn, but he does seem open to new experiences.

You write: "“The breakthrough came when I finally grokked that only the ‘mind’ possesses the required energy field necessary to generate a true temporal distortion. It’s also much cheaper,”

You know, I have screenplay that could have used that exact line.

At 10:14 AM, Blogger Charles Gramlich said...

X Dell, that Professor Gramlich is indeed a genius. I am amazed every time I'm in his presence. He's much smarter than I am. :)
