Don't ya just hate those posts that just quote another note and
then say "yup, me too"!

Jenny, I agree with your point that there are some cases that
the idea that these are time travellers just makes sense.  And I
too believe that the nature of time is such that we just have to
figure out the how, but its there, awaiting us.  Heck, I'm old
enough that so much that was science fiction when I was born, is
not day to day knowledge and in myhome and working for me!  What
I was taught in grade 11 physics has changed! Metaphysics is now
science.  The theory of how time can be travelled is out there
in many forms, in many minds, and its only a short matter of
'time' before someone figures out how to do it using technology.
Of course, there is always the mind!

Lesley
