Exhibit B: “The Businessman”

In 1848, a railroad worker named Phineas Gage suffered a traumatic brain injury after taking an iron spike through the skull. Somehow he survived, though his personality would change drastically. These behavioral changes were closely studied, allowing the medical community to develop the first understanding of the role played by the frontal lobe on social cognition.

Except for Poe, who’d inexplicably understood the profound personality changes caused by frontal lobe syndrome nearly a decade earlier. In 1840, he penned a characteristically gruesome story called “The Businessman” about an unnamed narrator who suffers a traumatic head injury as a young boy, leading to a life of obsessive regularity and violent, sociopathic outbursts.

This magical button delivers Upworthy stories to you on Facebook:

Poe’s grasp of frontal lobe syndrome is so precise that neurologist Eric Altshuler wrote, “There’s a dozen symptoms and he knows every single one… There’s everything in that story, we’ve hardly learned anything more.” Altshuler, who, to reiterate, is a medically-licensed neurologist and not at all a crackpot, went on to say, “It’s so exact that it’s just weird, it’s like he had a time machine.”

Exhibit C: “Eureka


Still unconvinced? What if I told you that Poe predicted the origins of the universe 80 years before modern science would begin to formulate the Big Bang theory? Surely, an amateur stargazer with no formal training in cosmology could not accurately describe the machinery of the universe, rejecting widely-held inaccuracies while solving a theoretical paradox that had bewildered astronomers since Kepler. Except that’s exactly what happened.

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
