It’s not just the well-known circumstances of his life — orphaned at a young age, father of the mystery novel, master of cryptology, maestro of the macabre. Nor am I referring to the head-scratching details of the days leading up to his death: how he was found on the street near a voting poll wearing someone else’s clothes, and during his subsequent hospitalization, he was alleged to babble incoherently about an unidentified person named “Reynolds.”

And I won’t even get into the confounding reports of a nameless figure who, for seven decades, would show up to Poe’s gravesite in the early hours of his birthday with a glass of cognac and three roses.

Tragic and curious, yes, but hardly evidence that the acclaimed horror writer could transcend the limits of space and time. No, my time travel theory concerns the author’s creative output, which you’ll soon see is so flukishly prophetic as to make my outlandish claim seem plausible — nay, probable!

The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is a loosely linked map of flesh-eating floaters, crunched skull survivors, and primordial particles. OK, here we go…

Exhibit A: “The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket”

Published in 1838, Poe’s only completed novel details a mutiny on a whaling ship lost at sea. Out of supplies, the men revert to cannibalism, drawing straws to elect a sacrifice. A boy named Richard Parker draws the shortest straw and is subsequently eaten.

Now here’s where it gets weird(er): In 1884, 46 years after the novel’s publication, four men would be set adrift following the sinking of their yacht. Shipwrecked and without food, they too would go the survival cannibalism route, electing to kill and eat a 17-year-old cabin boy. The boy’s name: Richard Parker.

The extraordinary parallel went unnoticed for nearly a century, until a widely-circulated letter from a descendant of the real Parker outlined the similarities between the novel’s scene and the actual event. The letter was selected for publication in The Sunday Times after journalist Arthur Koestler put out a call for tales of “striking coincidence.” Striking indeed.

Exhibit B: “The Businessman”

Time travel is not none sence each day we traverse forward 24 hours. We are able to move through time zones in a plane both forward and backward through time accordingly. The secret to time travel would seem to be relative to space and movement through that space. If one could leave the bounds of the body on some alternative conscious level who is to day they could not experience the distant past or the far off future. I myself have had dreams and would swear under oath and pass a lie detector test to say what a later experience once happened in a dream. I should guess I am not rare In this occurrence. The problem I think is. Most people don't recall dreams or have any level of finite control over any aspect of their dreams. That and some suggest we don't use enough of our brains to do more. Add that to the calcification of our God gland which further alienates us from higher Thought. There is much we don't understand. To discount what we don't know as preposterous I ignorence at its best. Meaning it's ok to not know the answers but it's truly sad.

No need for a "time machine" when you can access akashic records...

The human mind can conceive of ideas and theories far exceeding the complexity of reality, it is theorized that thought doesn't simply perceive reality but indeed shapes it. This is not an abstract notion but a literal one. Are we not the result of the consequence of our actions or inactions..... and does the body not follow the mind to motion? And if in our wild imaginings we create a world more spectacular then the present. Do we not make reality as we see it? I think and many agree, that we indeed do. To that end time is a construct of the human mind to put order to events. But all time is suggested to happen all at once from and beyond conception to beyond ones death. So it may not just be fear and imagination that we sometimes see but the future it's self.

There is no time travel. However, there is reincarnation & levels of conciousness we are all level 0+ - The Planet is level 1 as the Mayans said. It started in 2012. Edgar would of been a level 1+ they reincarnated to guide us.. Same as Einstien he was level 2, Tesla level 2, Hawkins level2 (although he is a liar & manipulated by the Government)

Read Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda if you want to understand this.

Further testament to Poe's genius. I don't believe in time travel, and I didn't know about the parallels between his works and real life occurrences. Very interesting!

Says who...i think it is our judgment of him that shows our own inability to balance it...in this age man considers you crazy if you dont know who won thr game or who is the top pop starlet this year etc...back in poes day it was taboo to speak as deeply as he did on escoteric subjects...much like michaelangelo divinci..etc etc the knowledge was hisden within cleverly written codexs..i do not see him mad ..i see the misjudgment of man..like they do to all who stand against the norm
