Reality Tweak

First Contact
I've been going through a conceptual reorganization. What I think of as the Buld Reality was not actually a single Reality. My collaborator, Gohrlay, has convinced me that there was a whole family of closely related "Buld Realities".

The end of our Reality Chain
The difficulties associated with creating the Final Reality (our universe) arose from the power of Temporal Momentum. In the Ekcolir Reality, 20th century Earthlings were told about the impending arrival of the Fru'wu on Earth and much of the Hidden History of Earth, including visits by aliens going back billions of years into our past.

Had no special efforts been made, the science fiction stories in the 20th century of the Buld Reality would also have told the Hidden History of Humanity. However, here in the Final Reality, the tryp'At Overseers worked hard to blunt that Temporal Momentum and make sure that most Earthlings remained ignorant and could not anticipate the arrival of the Buld spaceship on Earth in 2012.

Magazine of Future Science
I've never understood the distinction between Reality Changes and microchanges. Maybe the distinction is that a Reality Change is a large enough change in Time that it causes a significant alteration to the shape of a Reality's Temporal attractor. I've previously described the Eanru Intervention as an example of how the Buld Reality was tweaked so as to eliminate The Magazine of Future Science.

Special thanks to Miranda Hedman ( for the DeviantArt stock photograph "Black Cat 9 - stock" that I used to create the blue "sedronite" who is in the image shown to the right.

Without that little timeline tweak by the tryp'At, The Magazine of Future Science would have published important accounts of the Hidden History of Earth such as 'The Gohrlay Triangle'.

I am familiar with the story of Shana Peterson (founding editor of The Magazine of Future Science) because of an odd event that took place about 45 years ago. At that time, I had my own close encounter with Shana's granddaughter. Exactly how and why my life was linked to the Peterson family remains a mystery and is in need of further investigation.

It may be that the surgical removal of The Magazine of Future Science from our timeline was the last microchange before the Final Reality. However, when I recently mentioned that idea to Gohrlay, she suggested another possibility. According to Gohrlay, there were several other journals and magazines that also played important roles in revealing the Hidden History of Earth. One of these, along with The Magazine of Future Science, were completely deleted from our Reality.

When the Buld Reality first came into existence, there was a print magazine called The Journal of the Future. According to Gohrlay, The Journal of the Future published an eclectic mix of science fact, futurism and science fiction. The Journal of the Future had a heavy emphasis on physics, and it published many articles about "future physics" topics related to hierions and sedrons.

When the Buld Reality first came into existence, another important outlet for publishing articles about Hidden History of Earth was Omni Magazine. In the Ekcolir Reality, the analogue of Omni was called Ceri (an Etruscan word meaning roughly "creation" with connotations of the journal's content encompassing "all of creation") and it was founded by Bayla Keeton. In the Ekcolir Reality, some aspects of technology development were accelerated. Ceri was founded as a website, but due to its popularity it apparently also had a printed mode of distribution starting in its second year.

The fourth major journal of the early Buld Reality that published extensively about the Hidden History of Earth was one that originated in the Ekcolir Reality as a magazine called Truth Hintha. According to Gohrlay, "truth hintha" has nothing to do with the English word "truth".

The phrase "truth hintha" can be roughly translated into English as: "crafting the Final Reality". Articles published in Truth Hintha revealed much of what is to be known about time travel, the Time War and efforts to end that war and bring into existence a Final Reality. Truth Hintha was founded by Beutha Young. The analogue of Truth Hintha in the Buld Reality was called Radical Science.
