For me, as a fan of science fiction, The Time Machine is little more than an annoying horror movie. However, I do enjoy fun time travel stories such as The End of Eternity. Let's look into Deep Time and discover the nature of The Time Machine in another Reality...

|Yvette in The Black Hole|
In 1979, Yvette appeared in the role of a space-traveling telepath in The Black Hole. I never saw that movie, but reviewers of the flick have not been very kind. At least Yvette got a cool double-barreled ray gun to play with in The Black Hole.

In the Ekcolir Reality, the term "black hole" entered the scientific literature in 1921 when Einstein and Karli Schwarzschild collaborated to publish a book on event horizons. Schwarzschild had made use of an early analog computer to calculate the mass of a star that would form a black hole following a supernova explosion.

In 1955, Mary Pratt published a novel called Black Sun. In Black Sun, the crew of a spaceship from Earth arrives at a small black hole that was discovered by gravitational microlensing and located not too far from our Solar System. The Commander of the mission, Dr. McCrea, is led to believe that the black hole allows her to achieve telepathic contact with aliens who live on a distant planet in the Galactic Core.

In Galactic Core, Dr. McCrea was depicted as traveling to the planet Tar'tron by way of a Hierion Tube.
