Welcome to the second BlogFlash event! The first (#BlogFlash2012) was so well received that we decided to run it twice yearly. It’s a great opportunity to get creative, meet other bloggers and get a new audience. Whether you join us for the full month or just a few days, the main aim is to have fun and be inspired. Anything else is a bonus. Worried about word count? Don’t be! It’s a guideline so the month doesn’t feel overwhelming but if you feel inspired to write more, feel free. Good luck!
#BlogFlash2013: Day Ten – Time
One day, British physicist Stephen Hawking believes, when we’re able to build a vehicle that can travel at high enough speeds, it will be possible to travel in time. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to visit a loved one who’s passed or the person whose life or philosophies shaped us? Or travel forward to see how the future plays out?
The problem with altering the fourth dimension is, of course, the butterfly effect. Any mark we leave in the past would necessarily alter the future. Perhaps the same would occur with travel into the future; assuming time is fluid, changing an outcome would affect the cause. Travel into the past, according to Hawking, is physically impossible. And herein lies the precisely problem: once we’ve gone forward-or once we’ve changed any circumstance in time-it is impossible to go back.
I’m neither brave nor daring; for me, an inability to return would be a dealbreaker. What about you?
