Book Description

July 22, 2012 1601631502 978-1601631503 1
"From pop culture fantasies to wild conspiracy theories to the latest scientific thinking, This Book Is From the Future is a fascinating exploration of our collective obsession with time. Jones and Flaxman cover the subject from just about every angle, with a dash of humor and the serious scientific curiosity it deserves."
--Stephen Wagner, About.com Paranormal Guide

"It is a very engaging read about how time travel has captured our imaginations and how today's scientists are taking the subject very seriously. Written in a friendly newsy way...You will find a number of surprising discoveries awaiting you."
--Fred Alan Wolf, PhD, aka Dr. Quantum, author of Time Loops and Space Twists and The Yoga of Time Travel

The idea of time travel has tantalized humans for millennia. We can send humans into space, but roaming through time has eluded us. Do the laws of physics demand that we stay forever trapped in the present?

This Book Is From the Future will explore:
  • Time travel theories and machines of the past, present, and future.
  • Time and the multiverse: why wormholes, parallel universes, and extra dimensions might allow for time travel.
  • The paranormal aspects of time: Might we already be "mentally" time traveling?
  • Mysterious time shifts, slips, and warps that people are reporting all over the world. Are we experiencing coexisting timelines?
  • Time travel conspiracy theories: Are we already walking among real time travelers? Has a real time machine already been created in a top-secret

    government facility?

    2.0 out of 5 stars Badly written/Boring September 7, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is not well written. On almost every page, an idea is mentioned and then we are told that they will discuss this at a later chapter. This is constant! Any writing textbook will tell you that this is bad writing. Don't bring it up until you are ready to discuss it. Also, the text has many LONG lists of movies or TV shows that talked about time travel. Who cares? This is not giving me any information I can use, or expanding my knowledge. I got a little more than 1/3 through this book and gave up. Not worth reading.

    This Book Is From The Future-A Journey Through Portals,
    Relativity, Worm Holes by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman
    explores the history and science of time travel, wormholes,
    parallel universes, time warps and coexisting timelines.
    The book begins by defining time from years to the yoctosecond
    which is beyond the shortest time measurable by any current
    machine or process.

    The authors explain that entropy does not work in reverse.
    The forward arrow of time increases entropy but time does
    not flow in the reverse direction. A hot pot of water gets
    cold due to entropy but a cold pot of water cannot get hot
    without some other interfering factor not in the original
    equation.

    Jones and Flaxman explain how Godel worked with
    Albert Einstein to formulate a theory that time travel
    into the past was possible provided that the universe
    was rotating. Godel hypothesized riding a circular or
    spiral path allowing him to go back to the past and
    return to the present. Physicists would later argue
    that Godel's universe, if finite, would remove the
    time travel aspect completely making everyone more
    comfortable with the theory.

    The book depicts the Lorenztian wormhole pictorially
    and explains that the black hole would be the entry
    point with the white hole as an exit point. The practical
    implementation problem is that entering into a black hole
    will meet with infinite gravity and be crushed or stretched
    into nothingness or an incomprehensible gravitational
    effect.

    The Casimir effect proved that negative energy densities can
    happen in nature.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Topics Poorly Reserched July 27, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The authors clearly did not do thorough enough research. I was familiar with many of the stories they cited, but they had a lot of details incorrect. I never finished the book.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, awful, idiotic book. March 9, 2013
    By Elliott
    Format:Paperback
    Great topic. Too bad it was written for fourth graders. Well, actually written BY fourth graders. Bad writing, terrible editing, typos everywhere. Ideas don't follow through. Science is mixed up with and confused by "science". The "guest writers" are even worse. I could go on and on. I might detail the horrors of this mega-piece later, but trust me, it's a jaw-dropping creation of stupidity.
