My mom was a teenager in the 50’s at a time when the cinemas offered either beach pictures or lame science fiction. Some of those science fiction movies indicated the possibility of man one day traveling to the moon. Of course that was never going to happen. Mom didn’t believe that traveling to the moon would be possible. Yet almost two decades later (1969) Neil Armstrong was the first man to step foot on the moon on the moon.
The moon travel is just one of many realities that started out as science fiction. The cast of Star Trek used cell phones long before they were introduced to planet earth.
Before mom got dementia, she believed that it was possible for time travel to be invented. I did not agree with her reasoning, but now I wonder.
As mentioned before, I have been taking a family history class – more for Roland’s sake than my own. We have been challenged to find a particular ancestor to find ancestors for. We no longer have the four and five generation family tree pedigree chart, but rather a 7 - 9 generation fan chart.
I found several holes in my fan. The most bare spots above my 2nd great grandmother, Augusta Emilie Larsen – provided that is even her correct name.
I now believe that time travel will exist. A girl who could be named Courtney Wells or Stella Featherstone for example (we have idea what the name is on her birth certificate) will be born and travel back in time. She will end up somewhere in Norway and will have a case of amnesia.
Others may show compassion toward her and give her a name. They will call her Augustine and she may be living in a home of a family called Larsen and she will be raised there before she meets my great-great grandfather. He will bring her to the United States and we will lose track of her again. Perhaps she found her time machine and went forward to the future on September 19, 1920 in Cook, Illinois.
The reason that I cannot find any parents for Augustine Emilie Larsen is because they haven’t been born yet. That is my story and I am sticking with it.
