This is a different topic that I have loved for a long time and started doing research for a new story. My knowledge is brief and that is why I have added the links to this post.
To say that life on Earth is in its infancy is to be blunt and to state a fact that many scientists have been saying for a long time. There are many things that we don’t understand. One of these are wormholes to explain a wormhole in terms that everyone can understand.
Think of Alice in through the looking glass. She is standing on one side of another world, literally. The mirror is the wormhole, a way to be transported between two destinations.
Sliders had the MC(Main Character) Quinn Mallory, using wormholes to get to different universes, he and a group of friends travel to different dimensions, saving people and fixing things.
In Dr. Who, a human/alien travels through time to different places fixing things in a blue police box called a TARDIS.
One of the movies to use the Wormhole concept is “Event Horizon.” The movie takes on the wormhole concept and turns it into a horror movie. I know that critics hated this movie, I thought it was awesome. The movie “The Matrix” is another. I could do an entire post on this movie, which I may do later.
Wormholes are theoretical in that no one has said they have seen one.
The idea behind the wormhole and its use in fiction whether it be novels, film or television has been fascinating to me since I first read “The Indian in the Cupboard.” That book changed the way I thought about things and how things came to life. I was child and the book fascinated me.
There are so many examples of its use that the actual theory is left behind. I hope that the links I place below are a help to those that are looking for real answers.
Introduction to Wormholes – This sight gives a run down of theories, starting with Reiman Cuts and ending with Sidney Coleman’s Wormholes.
The Anderson Institute – The Official Site of the World Encyclopedia of Time, the Time Shop, and the Time Research Association.
Nasa Cosmicopia on Wormholes – It’s Nasa.
Through the Wormhole – Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence — the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity.
I hope this post was informative and I hope you learned as much a I did researching it.
