I know heâ€™s been here. Iâ€™ve seen the signs and clues of his passing. It feels like ages since I started waiting for him to show himself. Heh â€“ thatâ€™s almost funny, thinking about the relativity of time passing and all this time Iâ€™ve been working on Interspatial Time and Chronological Mechanics as they relate to the movement of a body. That is to say time travel.
Iâ€™ve been struggling since my doctorate to find the break through, that one formula thatâ€™s been on the tip of my tongue for these past few months but canâ€™t seem to get out. I keep thinking that he will show up and give it to me, I know he will, itâ€™s just a question of time.
But, I also think that maybe he is just watching me, amused at my plight of going through what he has surely gone through. He probably thinks â€œWhy should I give it to him when I worked so hard to get it myself?â€ Or, perhaps, he is just waiting for the right moment that matches when he gave it to himself.
I donâ€™t believe that you can really screw up the linear nature of time. If he were to give me the answer before today it would already have happened and I would remember so itâ€™s got to be coming in the future. I know heâ€™s watching, after all I would. Why wonâ€™t he just speak up already?
I guess I will just have to persevere in my research so that, when I am ready, I can become him.
