Top 3 Convincing Moments That Edgar Allan Poe Was A Time Traveler

The prophetic vision came in the form of “Eureka,” a 150-page prose poem critically panned for its complexity and regarded by many as the work of a madman. Written in the final year of Poe’s life, “Eureka” describes an expanding universe that began in “one instantaneous flash” derived from a single “primordial particle.”

Poe goes on to put forth the first legitimate solution to Olbers’ paradox — the question of why, given the vast number of stars in the universe, the night sky is dark — by explaining that light from the expanding universe had not yet reached our solar system. When Edward Robert Harrison published “Darkness at Night” in 1987, he credited “Eureka” as having anticipated his findings.

In an interview with Nautilus, Italian astronomer Alberto Cappi speaks of Poe’s prescience, admitting, “It’s surprising that Poe arrived at his dynamically evolving universe because there was no observational or theoretical evidence suggesting such a possibility. No astronomer in Poe’s day could imagine a non-static universe.”

But what if Poe wasn’t of a day at all, but of all the days?

What if his written prophecies — on the cannibalistic demise of Richard Parker, the symptoms of frontal lobe syndrome, and the Big Bang theory — were merely reportage from his journey through the extratemporal continuum?

Surely I sound like a tinfoil-capped loon, but maybe, maybe, there are many more prophecies scattered throughout the author’s work, a possibility made all the more likely by the fact that, as The New York Times notes, “Poe was so undervalued for so long, there is not a lot of Poe-related material around.”

I’ll leave you with this quote, taken from a letter that Poe wrote to James Russell Lowell in 1844, in which he apologizes for his absence and slothfulness:

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)

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
