John Chambers wrote and extensive article on the Chronovisor for the 26th issue of Atlantis Rising. It appears at pages 34, 36, 65, 66 and 68. We commend the entire article to your critical review. Was Baird T. Spalding a charlatan or worse -- a fraud? If he was we have several disturbing questions to answer. How did he come by his very thorough spiritual insights? Why and who funded his 40 years of archeological and geophysical research and translations in the Gobi Desert and the Himalayas? Was Baird at mining engineer? In whose emply was he? Why do some say he did a multi-millionaire and others say he was penniless? What happened to his voluminous research? Where are those translations of ancient texts that ancestors though significant enough to record on gold tablets?
time—in particular, backward in time— had been considered impossible. Today, eminent scientists are beginning to debate the conditions under which it could occur.

University of Oxford physicist, David Deutsch, says relativity theory suggests that space-time can become so distorted that bits of it can break off to form closed space-time loops. Such ‘world-lines’ would be ‘timelike’ all the way around,” says Deutsch; if we followed part of such a
closed timeline curve (or CTC) “we could return to the past and participate in events there.” Writing in Scientific American for March, 1994, Deutsch and Oxford philosopher Michael Lockwood cite physicist Stephen Hawking as stating that “quantum-mechanical effects would either prevent CTCs from forming or would destroy any would-be time traveler approaching one,” making time travel to the past impossible.” Page 36
“I can think of half-a-dozen ways in which we could not be awash in time travelers, and still time travel is possible,” said now-deceased Carl Sagan on a NOVA TV documentary on time travel in 1994. Sagan said it might be possible to build a time machine that can go into the future, but not into the past—but we don’t know about this because we haven’t yet invented that time machine. ... Sagan put forth the possibility that the time travelers are here but we can’t see them, perhaps because they’ve perfected something like an invisibility cloak. “If they have such highly developed technology, then, why not?” he said. The author/astronomer speculated that the time travelers are here, and we see them, but “we call them something else—UFOs or ghosts or hobgoblins or fairies or something like that.” Sagan said that, finally, “there’s the possibility that time travel is perfectly possible, but it requires a great advance in our technology, and human civilization will destroy itself before time travelers invent it. I’m sure there are other possibilities as well,” Sagan concluded, “but if you just think of that range of possibilities, I don’t think the fact that we’re not obviously being visited by time travelers shows that time travel is
impossible. ... Many other scientists agree with Carl Sagan. In a recent book, Beyond Eternity (Jenseites der Ewigkeit, Langen-Müller, 2000), noted German time travel authority/author Ernst Meckelburg cites the theoretical proof for the possibility of time travel put forward as far back as 1988 by MIT astrophysicists Michael Morris, Kip Thorne and Ulvi Yurtsever in a paper published in Physical Review Letters. In earlier works, such as Zeittunnel (Time Tunnel, Langen-Müller, 1997) and Zeitschock (Time Shock, Langen-Müller, 1995), the Hanau-based author has cited the far-reaching speculations of eminent scientists, such as Israeli physicist Yakir Aharanov and Princeton cosmologist Richard Gott, which have helped place the study of time travel on a respectable footing.
Meckelburg, who received the Swiss Dr. A. Hedri Award for epipsychology (study of post-death mental states) in 1997, the same year Drs. John Mack and David Jacobs received it for exopsychology (study of the ET mind), believes, along with the scientists he cites at length, that time travel must be a fairly commonplace occurrence in the universe.” Page 65
Sidebar on David Deutsch - Oxford Quantum Physicist
DAVID DEUTSCH: Quantum mechanics is a theory of many parallel universes. Some of them are alike and some of them are very unlike. There are nearby universes that differ from this one only in the position of one photon or one electron. There are other more distant universes where we're not filming here at all and there are others where I was never even born. ... I myself believe that there will one day be time travel because when we find that something isn't forbidden by the over-arching laws of physics we usually eventually find a technological way of doing it. (“Time Travel, PBS Broadcast NOV – 1999).
It’s in regard to the cases where actual physical time machines may be involved that there may be another reason why time travel from the future, or elsewhere, may be happening, and we don’t know about it. According to journalist Miguel Jones, translator of Peter Krassa’s Father Ernetti’s Chronovisor: The Creation and Disappearance of the World’s First Time Machine (New Paradigm Books, 2000), its presence might be suppressed by one or another government in the same way as, according to Philip Corso in The Day After Roswell, the U.S. government suppressed news of the retrieval and backengineering of UFOs downed in New Mexico in 1947, even while clandestinely introducing alien technology (such as lasers) into our society. The Flagstaff, AZ-based Jones said that Father Ernetti repeatedly reaffirmed that “anyone building a time machine would have to keep it a complete secret. If word got out, the government, or evil people, would steal or appropriate the machine.” The ability to time travel confers enormous power, remarks Jones. “You could murder someone and change thepresent in a way that suited you. You could travel into the future and bring back knowledge which would enable you to assume absolute control in the present.” The journalist/translator noted this was the principal reason Ernetti gave for not divulging details of the chronovisor: “He was afraid villains would steal it and use it to control the world.” Jones quoted Father Ernetti as saying that for a year-and-a-half he couldn’t leave the monastery of San Giorgio Maggiore unless he was accompanied by two bodyguards because “the American and Russian intelligence agencies had taken an interest in him and had sent spies to shadow his every move.” Helena R. Olmo, a Spanish journalist who spent three months in Italy in 2000 researching Father Ernetti for a forthcoming book, says that, according to her sources, both the Vatican Secret Service and the Italian Secret Service detained someone in 1965 who they thought had sold information to the Russians on work being done on the chronovisor in Venice by Father Ernetti.
“The incident was mentioned in the Russian press,” says Olmo, who lives in Madrid. Has the U.S. government—perhaps in some future form—suppressed time travelers? “I don’t know,” ponders Ernst Meckelburg, “but if you look at the bizarre 2000 American presidential elections, to cite just one example, you can see that anything is possible.” Meckelburg has long wondered if the collapse of the Soviet Union and the reunification of Germany “might have been arranged from our very future.”
George Andrews, well-known author of such works as Extra-Terrestrial Friends and Foes (Illuminet Press, 1993), notes that Father Ernetti was at the peak of his activities at about the same time the CIA’s MK-ULTRA project meant to explore the possibility of time travel and much else, was itself in full swing. Andrews remarks that the research of the well-known, respected— and talkative—Benedictine priest could not have escaped the notice of the CIA—or the KGB or any other major intelligence agency. ...

Jones says a cover-up may well have been a part of the Baird T. Spalding story (also told in detail in Father Ernetti’s Chronovisor). “For sure, a great deal of what Spalding said about himself during his lifetime was absolutely untrue. So was a whole lot of what Doug DeVorss said about Spalding. But DeVorss was in touch with Spalding on a daily basis for years, and often traveled with him. He must have known the truth. “But despite all these untruths, Baird T. Spalding was incredibly knowledgeable in many areas of esoteric learning. How did he acquire that knowledge? Doug DeVorss was murdered at just about the time people were beginning to ask questions. Now we’ll never know.” (Page 68)
