I read Tarot cards a while ago, which suported my idea to balance my intuitive side with more earthy ideas. I also watched Homeward Bound, (remember it?) about the 2 dogs and cat who travelled home...using a sensory system that many animals rely upon. A recent news story about a dog travelling with 2 broken legs for 3 weeks following a tornado until he got home, brings this to my rational mind as a certainty beyond the fiction of movies.

Time travel was one of the topics a group of us considered over lunch the other day. And my proposal was that science fiction can again lead us beyond scientific limitations, in considering that time as a concept is what makes the limitations. Time does not need to be considered as a linear function, rather perhaps a more intuitive one, or instantaneous one, or something that hasn't been thought of yet...we can get off the past/present/future time line. Then we get back to the philosophical construct that all that really exists that we can act upon is NOW.
