Tonight, as I was watching this movie called, “The Love Letter,” a story about the past and the present between an 1800’s Civil War era women and a present day 20th century man, who exchanges letters from the past to the present and vise versa by way of an antique desk, the films leading character Scott Corrigan buys.
The power of time travel has empowered some intriguing thoughts of time travel in general. But, there is always the possibility, “the truth is out there,” as the “X-Files,” Agent Muddler would say to his partner, Agent Scully.
It made me wonder what time travel would be like through correspondence or letters from the past to the present? Freaky has it sounds. But – what if it was possible to time travel itself? Skeptics say, as Muddler said, “the truth if out there,” but no one has said, if it was or if it is possible travel from past to present and vise versa.
So? What does America’s government know? Skeptics as the men in black would tensely be with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, they’re clad enough to make comical antics of spaceaholics, traveling at warp speed without Dolly Parton in tow!
Novelist H.G. Wells wrote a book called, “The Time Machine” published in 1890, where a person could travel selectively between past and present. But, the movie, “The Love Letters,” somehow reminds me of both Well’s novel and the movie’s mystic words of the written word through letters and antique treasure found and sold in the present day. The mystics of magic and the power to be’s of such phenomenon happen out of nowhere to be a real as it can be as a story being today in today’s world of skeptics who still think the government is at conspiracy and trivia pursuit of solitary answers of truth.
Inspirational to begin with – a sigh of relief, that we all wonder if we could actually send from the past to the present and vice versa in a matter of seconds from printing it on paper and sending it back via snail mail from the post office and getting a response back in the hutch of a desk drawer without warning in present day makes its superstitious and cranky as a blogger and novelist can think (sorry, Jim Brown, I wasn’t talking about you? Was I?) But, I’m still curious for all that matters. If you’ve seen the Dennis Quaid movie, “Frequency”- you’d, probably already know, what I’m talking about when it comes to time travel from the 1960’s to the present day 1999, a thirty year difference between time travel concepts through a rare strange atmospheric phenomenon via shortwave radio waves has depicted in the movie starring Dennis Quaid.
Nothing that I can remember of my own past where the future and the past could inter-connect from one another still gives me mystical vibes of creeps and gowls as if it were a modern day fairy tale of truth and dare from the past to the present in such mystics of the phenomenon known as “time travel.” I only wish it were true we had that ability, as if I just had re-read H.G. Well’s, “The Time Machine,” all over again for the shear benefit of inspiration of traveling through time.
