A respected news service has reported on Andrew Basiago and his claim to have been part of a DARPA-funded experiment on time travel called the Project Pegasus, and to have travelled back in time to various famous events. There is interesting testimony in the video here that explains a lot of things, and Basiago promotes the savings in energy and time that would occur with the introduction of instant teleporting around the world, and also warns of dangers such as 1984-type surveillance but which also included the past and future.
Basiago obviously hasn’t thought the situation through very well because he’s lobbying for the technology to be released and laws introduced to prevent its misuse…
Under a beneficent government … for example, an activist president who would end the time travel cover-up, we’re going to be able to implement the positive potentials of these technologies and craft legislation to protect the american people and the people of the world from the negative potentials of these technologies.
The problem is obvious: The technology is already in the hands of the bad guys. If they wanted the technology released to the general public they would have already done so, and if Basiago had any chance of forcing its release they will would have taken care of him already. There’s no way for him to win because even if he was successful the bad guys would simply go back in time and stop him.
That’s also how I know that you don’t believe this. The technology is safe as long as it’s just a few “crackpots” who think it exists, but if a large percentage of people began to accept its existance the bad guys would return to the past and and stop whatever convinced so many people from being widely disseminated.
