"Suppose that i give you a time machine and you simply travel some seventy years again and destroy your grandfather. Since your grandfather would not have been married at that time your father's beginning is not possible and you can't be here today to visit back in its history to eliminate your grandpa. Hence your grandpa is alive then and you are here today, now there is again the probability that you should travel back again and eliminate your grandpa. So"
I discontinued my lecture and looked at the children. A few of them were baffled but many possessed bright encounters. Though they didn't understand they were all enthusiastic so I extended my lecture. "It has no solution it is similar to an infinite loop, we call it grandfather's paradox which is one of the problems with time travel. There are certainly others for example", I ceased to get my ringing telephone, I was surprised to learn that my grandfather passed on.
As I was on my two hour air travel to Hyderabad I spent my time reminiscing about my grandfather. He often said that there were no coincidences but only selections, either ours or others. Nonetheless it had not been my choice to listen to about his demise while conversing of grandfather's paradox, may be it was god's. My grandpa worked as an engineer in The Archeological Division of India, and headed the job for learning about the lost Indus valley civilization. He used to share me strange experiences about the Indus valley civilization after i was a child, but one of these was so fanciful that I just took it to be a mere fable but as I grew older my methodical knowledge and reasoning educated me that it was also possible. So I have asked him whether it was true or not and he always replied with a giggle "I have made an set up so that you can know about it when i am useless".
After the funeral my bereaved mom handed me a record which my grandpa wished to give me. It was a assortment of reviews about the archeological discoveries surrounding the world, UFO sightings etc. , cut off from the magazines. They looked generations old and I couldn't find their age coz there were no dates about them. As I scanned those articles one of these entitled- "Mysterious artifact within the excavations at Harappa", trapped my attention. My heart and soul started pounding with panic to learn whether this is the proof I was looking forward to, and I started reading it.
"A inexplicable artifact resembling those within 1903 at the excavations nearby the pyramids in Egypt was found at Harappa previous month. Neither the materials from which it is made nor its age were found by carbon dating & spectrum examination, but because of its dumble shape researchers believe it to be always a toy. In addition they claim that this establishes that there is trade between the ancient Egyptians and the Indians".
I was dazzled by his creative genius, coz he created a great storyline based on this short article and it went like this
He conceived the globe around him in a different way, he used to state " don't just look manavada (grand child), observe and question ", and at that age group I couldn't really understand the difference. AFTER I was in sixth level I asked him the same question, he stared at me for some time and asked me "do you know how many natural stone blocks were laid to create the Giza pyramid ?", I said "no". "about 25 lakh rocks each weighing about 25 loads, have u ever before wondered that they produced such a great composition in those days when they had no iron to cut the rocks. Have u ever wondered that they transported or raised such heavy obstructs". I said "no". "It really is simple, someone with the technology will need to have helped them. Could be they were built by aliens. "
"come on thathayya ( grandpa) not really a fairy tale again. ",
"why is it impossible manavada, as Sherlock holmes says when you have removed the impossible, the rest of the however improbable it could seem can be done".
"then which alien civilization do you think is sensible?"
"Could be the one a billion light years away or a well advanced civilization from this planet itself"
"What, how is it possible for a civilization belonging to the same period to be so advanced than the Egyptians "
"Not of once, may be their own future years, time travellers".
"okay then clarify me this, the mortar used in the engineering of the pyramid is responsible for its durability, even the mortar we use today isn't that strong. Our researchers were able to decode its chemical composition but not the process by which it is made. Now imagine that in the future our scientists determined this process and also some other science freak invented enough time machine. To test the effectiveness of this mortar our researchers return back 4500 years and help the Egyptians to create the pyramids with it. Since our experts discovered the process by reverse anatomist the mortar and offered the technology to the Egyptians, it could not have been possible for the Egyptians to construct the pyramids without our researchers help, and if that is the case there wouldn't normally have been the source for our experts to change engineer and travel back in its history to give it to the Egyptians. Now tell me who found the procedure first the ancients or our time tourists? ".
I was befuddled and informed him i don't have confidence in time travel to save myself from his wizardry. Then he said " I am gonna tell you a technique and please keep it a magic formula, I travelled with time once. " I broke with laughter and said" do I look so foolish?, where did u get such an enormous time machine from?"
"The time machine need not be considered a machine at all. There's a condition called singularity, it's the state of subject at the primary of a dark-colored hole. When a huge star explodes it is named a supernova. The product present at the primary of an supernova is called Dark Subject, and the dark matter can be used to harvest a worm opening. And Albert Einstein mentioned that by creating such worm openings we can travel back and forth with time. In 1952 I had been delivered to Egypt for fieldwork, there we found bizarre dumble shaped tools. I secretly helped bring one of these to India and offered it to my friend who is a physicist to find what material it is. He found a small portion of darkmatter that must have been left by time traveller and we used it".
Though it felt silly I was awe struck by his imagination, so I asked him "where do you go then?"
"Will you know what caused the extinction of Indus valley civilization?"
"Well there are several theories like Aryan invasion, recurrent floods of the Indus, continuous seismic activity etc. . "
"These theories are just a twenty or thirty years old, in 1952 the only real theory was Aryan invasion theory. And we traveled back 3500 years to the time when this civilization began declining to verify this theory. But to your wonder we found no signal of any invasion, floods or other calamities. We were enthralled by the brilliance of the harappans, and the splendor of the hakra and indus streams, our rivers today are just canals in comparison with them. They were building a behemoth size dam in the hakra river that even the fantastic pyramid is no match to its magnificence. "
"I never heard of such large development on the Indus before "
"let me complete, even as we were on our way back something unexpected took place. My pal used a little more amount of the darkmatter to set-up the worm hole, as we inserted the worm gap a huge explosion occurred and it shattered the dam leading to a chain of floods and earthquakes resulting in the decrease of the Indus valley civilization. Now do you realize why the Indus valley civilization became extinct?".
"Obviously because of you as well as your friend, if you'll not have vanished there it would not have become extinct, if it was not extinct you would not have vanished there to find the reason, causality paradox I guess. So the Aryan invasion theory is fake. "
"No, infact it is the only true theory and the Aryans were none other than me and my friend".
"why did you not travel back in its history again to prevent the devastation?"
"How could we, for the reason that chaos we left the dumble there and now we can't go back. "
