Don’t Go Back to the Future

by Larry Tate on April 13, 2011

The Chinese government has banned all films and television from using a time travel plot device. Don’t even contemplate an alternative history. The current China is the best of all possible worlds.

No word yet on whether the citizens of China can drive Delorians.

Time Travel for Individuals – not Governments:

To break the restriction of a linear time sequence, the Lost need empirical data – uncorrupted, honest data. However, the Lost have filtered all their data with a scientific-religious presumption: a finite universe with a finite number of dimensions.

The Lost do not understand, nor do they perceive their conflict with the Infinite Universe and the Infinte number of dimensions…

“…nothing can be added to it,
nor anything taken from it…”

Individuals vs. Governments:

Governments have no imagination; they are locked into a limited, governable analysis. By restricting their dialectical analysis to a linear time sequence, the primary governmental concern is the acceptance of their historical data as the truth. However, imaginative individuals are able to treat such truncated “data” as variables. Such “disrespect” for governmental data (i.e., politically correct data) is any totalitarians’s nightmare: the first crack in the official justification of dominance over individuals.
