Tiny Voices

_DSC1857Tiny Voices – written by  Stan Phillips

Within an empty room, you hear their voices. Out of the corner of your eye, you see a quick glimpse of them before they disappear.

They are always somewhere, not so far away. They were here before us; and this is their world as much as it is ours. Otherwise, there is no difference between us.

They step into an empty room and they hear our voices. Out of the corner of their eye, they catch a quick glimpse of us before we disappear.

They have no understanding of us. In fact, they wonder who or what we are. They tremble of the very thought of us, saying we do not exist. Yet, they hope we stay away.

We are of what legends become. They are the ghostly tales we share. We coexist within the same space, separated by time itself.

No matter where you or I go, someone has been there before. Because I am writing this at this very moment, does not mean I am not somewhere in the future writing some other piece.

Even now as you read this blog, except at the moment of its conception, my thoughts no longer pertain to these lines.

Our actions, and our deeds are eternal. Our yesterdays still exist. At times, we might even catch a glimpse of them…or hear the echoes.

Now, I am not saying ghosts do not exist. However, maybe some of what we deem as spirits is instead us, or someone we knew. Since our deeds last, they can appear at anytime as a reminder of our very existence.

Thus, the next time you hear a tiny voice, or catch something out of the corner of your eye, do not be afraid it might be you or someone you know of some other time.

The possible and the impossible effects of Time Travel…

dales 015The Possible and the impossible effects of Time Travel…                    (written by Stan Phillips)

Arguments for and against time travel, or the good and the bad effects of the event taking place have been waged for many years. Little do we know time travel may be possible due to the intervention of a force of another plane.

Thus, here is another argument for discussion. Although this thought may not be widespread, the threat, or the blessing is real by the simple act of spreading philosophy.

In this case, subjected to the introduction to some wayward thought that when planted would eventually grow to effect not the past but the future some would now be led like sheep by its growing influence.

The purpose is whatever this power wanted. The objective might be as simple as saving a civilization, or leading the nation to its doom. Sadly, it might be as simple as some silly game of “watch and see”.

As if some science experiment, as they watch from their dark world they might even laugh, and say, “Silly humans, watch them run”.

As for the matter of how they could accomplish this treachery, succeed in extending a helping hand, or play…this is an easy task for someone from beyond time itself. The act might be as simple as with this being reaching down from their dimension and plucking someone from some timeline and dropping this poor soul anyone where they like.

Due to this intervention of this newly relocated traveler, eventually new endurable marks appear on time. It is also a certainty it would alter the future of human development, as well as our thought process as the stranger poses new thoughts in our past.

As eras past, the thought permeates through society…quite slowly at first. However, through time’s passing as humanity searched for an alternative belief we would latch on to this thought.

Beings from beyond time…you might ask, is that possible? It is, if you take into account that the further you go away from the Earth time gradually slows. Thus, it is possible there is a world beyond the effects of time itself…where beings exist forever.

Because they experience no time restraints as we do, they are then able to reach down into our world and pretty much do whatever they want to do by using us as their tool.

End of Part 1

Is Travel back in Time Possible?

Dooway to another timeIs Travel back in Time Possible?

Written by Stan Phillips

Time travel to the past might be as simple as stepping through a door at the precise moment a doorway to another time opens. However, when that door swings open, do we risk all that we know by taking a step across the threshold into that other time?

Would we then be free to act and possibly change what we currently know as history?

Would our meddling cause a ripple that would eventually bring an end to what we know?

The answer to these questions is “no”.

We would not be able to change history. In fact, there would be very little we could change in our journey. As in my novel “Reign of Valor”, those that travel back in time to the Alamo were there merely to record the valor of the souls that gave their all to win Texas its Independence.

No time traveler’s interference could keep the Titanic from sinking, or keep the men of the Alamo from dying. No one can change these outcomes. The sinking of the Titanic, as with the fall of the Alamo are fixed points in time.

The most any time traveler can hope to accomplish is to witness, and possibly record what actually took place in some point in time. Although in the case of “Reign of Valor”, the hero of the novel does succeed in creating a rallying cry that brings Texas its Independence sooner this act does not cause an alternate timeline to appear. The action of bringing about Texas’ Independence sooner is a by-product of his bringing about the fuller knowledge of the valor of the men of the Alamo to the point where we now honor the defenders.

Up to our hero’s arrival, the Alamo was a little known note on history. His contribution was limited to recording and proclaiming. He did not meddle with history. He became a part of it and thus was able to hasten along Texas’ Independence.

Of course, if he had changed history, his meddling would not have caused the end of the world. Instead, he would have forced an alternate timeline to appear making him a part of this new timeline. In this case, if that happened, our hero would have failed his mission in his previous timeline in proclaiming the valor of the men of the Alamo.

Furthermore, because he created this alternate reality he would never be able to return to his previous timeline as he now belonged to another timeline. SPOILER ALERT: For our hero, the doorway back to his modern time slammed shut because his mission would take the rest of his life to complete.

Once he realized what he wanted to do with the rest of his life there was no reason for the doorway to remain open for him, or anyone else for that matter. The doorway had served its purpose. The men of the Alamo would now have a place in our hearts.

Crossroads

Crossroads-Written by Stan Phillips

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEvery road we choose to take in our life leads to some end. Good or bad, these roads are the direction we choose to take. However, think of the roads we choose not to travel. At the time when we approached some crossroad in our journey through life, our eyes were open to choose our destiny.

However, what of the alternative direction we did not choose to take? What adventure did we miss? What of the people we never meet? Think good and hard on that last question.

Whether, or not you want to believe the fact there are lines, and circles in everyone’s life…there are separations of worlds. I am not referring to colors, race, religion, social standing, or even politics. I am referring to the separation of your world from someone else’s. I am writing about the lines where you can only briefly cross to meet someone of another circle. Then, you find yourself hurled back into your world as if attached to some rubber band. This might go to explain alternate worlds…or parallel existences.

Let us go back to that crossroad. If we took the alternate direction, how would our life be different? First off, many of the people we now know…we would never have met. The game changes. We would now belong to a different circle.

The choices we make, determines the people we meet, or do not meet. The circle you belong to is not as big as you might think. Oh, you might know many people. However, how many would you actually count as being close?

Although, there may be a longing to become a part of another circle there are powers invoked here that will not allow it. The reason may be due to parallel worlds, or existences.

Maybe in another world, let’s call it “existence 1”, you actually belong to this other circle. However, because you belong to this other circle in “existence 1”, you are not allowed to remain in that circle for long in “existence 2”. This is done to keep the parallel worlds from colliding into one another, and being destroyed. Thus, an invisible barrier is erected to keep the parallel worlds apart, and to ensure that circles have specific boundaries.

Now, I’m not saying you might not belong to the same circle in parallel worlds. However, something is different between the two parallel worlds. The difference may be as small as how some members of that circle regard you. Although, you belong to that circle, you might be a leader in one…and an outcast in the other. The possible variables are endless, as are the number of parallel experiences. It all comes down to the roads we choose to follow and all the successive roads we turn down.

The question is, does each crossroad represent the chance for another parallel existence. If so, there are an endless number of parallel universes. Think of the combinations of a simple pair of dice. Then, add a third, or fourth, or even more dies…toss them. How many combinations are there then? With each road we take, our circle changes. Just with a simple choice of someone taking a road to the left and go to the right, the two of you might never meet until much later in life…or, never at all. In this case, everything hinges on the choices we and others make, and the directions we choose to follow. These decisions produce our, and their circle.

 

We Are Never Truly alone…

barn1(1)WE ARE NEVER TRULY ALONE… (written by Stan Phillips)

I believe we are never truly alone…as when we say we’re alone with our thoughts, or when we say we’re the last man standing. Maybe we feel alone at times because we do not see anyone else around to help us out of a bind.

For a moment, release yourself from the knowledge that we are the master of our destiny.

I think when we are faced with some unpleasant moment the answers do not always come from within us, but they also come from beyond ourselves. If you think about it, there is some logic in what I am saying. In these cases, we just do not have the answers so someone had better help.

Now, I for one believe that life goes forever even after we leave this world.

If that is so, just think of all the people that have passed through this world…loved ones, friends…and, even those we have never met but have a stake in what happens to us if the outcome affects someone they care for.

Of course, these souls, guides, guardian angels, or whatever you call them don’t have the powers to control things here on Earth…like wars… feminine…discrimination of any kind, and worldwide devastation…or, any crimes against humanity. They come to us, or are part of us as a reminder.

Considering the thought, they are a part of us. There is also the fact of lineage to consider. The family loved ones that came before us remain as a common reminder of what they brought about. Their wants, joys, and even fears are apart of us. As we are joined in life, so are we joined in death. Each family member that came before us are a part of our lineage. Thus, they are a part of us. So, are their mistakes, and successes that we must come to grips with ourselves. Some of which we must learn to avoid like a plague.

That might explain why some repeat the very same mistake that family members made before them. As the one’s before them found they were trapped by poor decisions, now they too are trapped by making the very same decision. Unless we heed the warning, we are doomed to repeat their mistakes. Thus, we must learn to avoid the traps and take a different path for our life.

On the matter of us being alone, that thought is utterly impossible for me to believe. Do you really think that inspiration comes from us alone? Or, is there someone guiding us if we listen. There is much to consider in sitting alone and just listening to the spirits sent from above.

However, be forewarned about listening to spirits. As there are good and bad deeds in the world, so are there good and bad spirits. As for that thought, that topic will wait for another time to be explored in beyond the norm.

I Believe Everything We Do…

DSCN2934I Believe Everything We Do… (written by Stan Phillips)

I believe everything we do lasts forever…as a testament of our existence…regardless of how mundane or special a moment might be. Yet, maybe there is a little more going on with life’s records than we are willing to grasp.

A little abstract thinking is now required.

Is it possible that we can be living upon more than one place in time creating all the moments that proclaim our existence?

Might we also be in some heavenly place, beyond time, looking down upon every moment of our existence as if it were some movie?

Now, if moments exist forever, consider a particular event in your life. At the very instant, this event took place we were experiencing life. If that moment exists forever, would it not follow that our life in that moment continues to exist?

I believe even though moments pass we still live on every moment we create…existing as a testament of our existence.

Could we then relive a moment numerous times, believing the action was new. We have all had the thought that new surroundings somehow seem all too familiar to us, as if we had been there before.

Well, maybe we have…more thoughts to consider.

Everything Out of the Ordinary

ist blog__220140720_20035020140720_20035020140720_200350Everything out of the Ordinary – Written by Stan Phillips

Have you ever questioned why things are the way they are? If not, maybe it is because you do not want to step beyond the norm to learn the how and whys that explain the abnormal occurrences. You feel safe to remain in you little sheltered existence. However, just for a moment consider all the unexplained occurrences that are taking place around you each and every day that do not exactly meet the norm. As with the sudden bump in the night when there is no one around. Or, the familiar face you have never known. These are the unexplained occurrences that I am writing about, and want to share…thus, the reason for this site. I am a “Beyond the Norm” sort of person and my writings follow suit. What else would you expect?
