Time Travel 101 :: Part 2


Time travel 101: Now is now. Here is here . Everything else is theoretical bullshit until it’s not anymore.

So, why am I here now ? or should I say, “Why am I now here? “. That’s sort of complicated to answer because there is usually more than one of “me” here and I could have any number of agendas. At any given point there may be a dozen or so of “me” between the years 1997 and 2019 although I mostly live and work in 2089 as a scientist and defender of the Nile State. My primary purpose for traveling to this current era is to manage the acquisition of natural resources necessary for Light Travel, the most important of which is copper. By the year 2083  all of the Earth’s copper has been depleted.

I have  convinced several thousand people from your era  to acquire it for me. I pay them , no questions asked (most of the time). Some people have gone to unimaginable lengths to get it for me, and I’m not very proud of that.  It can get downright dangerous . Even  I haven’t always survived this mission. Going to your own funeral more than once is surreal to say the least. I am the 3rd sequence, second in command…ok I’m not going to get into this now, but I will say this : the sayings about  “know thy self” and “being your own worst enemy” have a meaning to me that scares most people.

Hitched a ride on this comet last week. Fun!

Wake Up!

Wake Up is a song that looks in from the outside… where the characters of CopperWire check what’s going on on Earth and give their two cents. Listen here friends!

Leaving home and not knowing when, or if, she’d return was nothing new to her. Her parents had been displaced like their parents before them. It was a cycle she couldn’t see any way out of, so in a way, to make her ancestors proud, she volunteered for the journey. In her mind the future of humanity depended on this.

The corporate-governments of the world had been bleeding the Earth of it’s resources with no regard to the future for centuries now. The privatization of the space exploration industry at once both expanded the field and crushed it’s potential to be something beneficial for all. From the Nile States, this was the first “people-powered” intergalactic space flight in history. Continue reading


The Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence is out there. Making moves. Looking for our spacecraft. Looking for us……


Captain’s Log: Askala Bilaq

I can’t believe they said we stole the ship. Steal? Really? I built the damn thing. I’m flattered that they grew so attached to it. You look at something for a few thousand years and you think it’s yours, people are funny like that… shit, even people who aren’t technically “people” are funny like that. I’m getting ahead of myself.

When you tell folks you’re a “time traveler” from the “future”, they tend to jump to all sorts of conclusions. Continue reading
