People often say that you know how an artist feels when you are in the same room as them. In the same way, you can tell how an inventor feels when they are surrounded by their creations. It might be hard to put into words the joy an inventor experiences when seeing their hard work come to fruition. This is one of the reasons why people love to follow the work of inventors – they can see the results of their labor day in day out. While we might never know how Robert Pattinson feels, what we do know is that he keeps a diary and that it is a very interesting read. In fact, if you have even the slightest interest in the subject matter, you should read it. Here is a small excerpt from the diary that sheds some light on the subject matter:
November 3, 1874, Paris
“I made an incredible discovery today,” I wrote in my diary. “I was in a toy store, examining various models for children, and I found the solution for all of them! I shall now be able to provide children with a better understanding of space and gravity — and hopefully prevent them from becoming addicted to video games. Inventing is a rewarding experience,” I continued. “Although it can be frustrating at times to have your ideas challenged, that is part of the process. It means you are pushing the boundaries of human knowledge forward.”
July 27, 1875, Paris
“I have finally perfected the time machine! After many trials and errors, I have determined that the energy output of a large battery is exactly what the temporal displacement machine needs to travel through time. This is made possible by my new theory on the generation of time, which I have named ‘chrono-dimensional theory.’ With this theory, I am able to precisely control the frequency at which the machine creates time-portals, enabling me to travel through time as naturally as possible. This machine could change the way we view time itself!” I wrote in my diary. “Unfortunately, there is still much work to be done before it can be tested. I must first determine the ideal battery life for the machine; after that, I shall need to build the housing for the time capsule; and finally, I shall have to find a stable time-space to experiment with. Once those are complete, we will be able to begin investigating the many mysteries surrounding time. Who knows – perhaps even someday, I shall meet E.T. and become his friend!”
February 4, 1876, Paris
“I have just returned from a trip to the future,” I wrote in my diary. “I went there to test my time machine and see how it works in practice. Fortunately, I was able to determine that it functions as expected. Although there are many challenges ahead of me, I feel confident that with a little bit of dedication and research, I will be able to conquer them all. I now know with certainty that my time machine works, so there is no use delaying its implementation any longer. I must return to my lab and begin constructing the next generation of time machines!”
The Final Entry
Three months later, I stopped writing. It was then that I finally found the solution to my problem and was able to develop my time machine on a larger scale. After many tedious trials and errors, I was finally able to determine the ideal battery life for the machine. It was then that I realized the importance that maintaining a stable time line would have on the integrity of my work. With the help of my assistant, Eloise, we were finally able to travel through time and ensure that the timeline would be preserved – at least for the time being. This was made possible by my new theory on the generation of time, which I have named ‘chrono-dimensional theory.’ Finally, on August 25, 1878, I went back in time and traveled to the past, where I again tested my time machine. Fortunately, everything went according to plan and the timeline was preserved exactly as it was before. It is now certain that my time machine works, and I will no longer need to travel through time to keep my work safe. I shall no longer be afraid to test it in the future. Although a lot of work remains, I feel confident that soon, I will be able to return to my research and continue developing new time-managing technologies for the benefit of mankind.
If you have the slightest interest in the subject matter, I strongly recommend that you read the whole thing. It’s great eye candy and might even give you some ideas on how to improve your own life a bit. Who knows – maybe one day, you will even create something that will change the way we look at time itself. Until then, happy reading!
