book tardisTARDIS = Time And Relative Dimension In Space) is a time machine and spacecraft in the British science fiction television program Doctor Who.  A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and space.

BOOK = Words composed, formatted and printed on sheets of paper bound THE BIG BLEEPtogether into a single volume by sturdy cardboard.  Or, a volume, as above, electronically digitized to be read on various digital devices such as computers or phone, etc..  Or, read by professional actors, recorded and formatted as an audio book.  Many books contain factual or fanciful information which may be useful, entertaining, enlightening, etc.. Some books may assist the reader to achieve the illusion, or actuality, of traveling through time, space, relative dimension or thought without having to watch silly British sci-fi TV shows.  On Earth a Tardis does not exist.  However, if you have not read any good books lately, try reading one of my books. The Big Bleep: The Mystery of A Different Universe, for example, is like a Tardis, but much more interesting.

For ancient history geeks, like me, this video demostrates how to use the “Orbis” mapping system, from Stanford University, is the coolest history study tool invented for want-to-be time travelers.  Here’s the link to the website: http://orbis.stanford.edu/

“Spanning one-ninth of the earth’s circumference across three continents, the Roman Empire ruled a quarter of humanity through complex networks of political power, military domination and economic exchange. These extensive connections were sustained by premodern transportation and communication technologies that relied on energy generated by human and animal bodies, winds, and currents.

Conventional maps that represent this world as it appears from space signally fail to capture the severe environmental constraints that governed the flows of people, goods and information. Cost, rather than distance, is the principal determinant of connectivity.

For the first time, ORBIS allows us to express Roman communication costs in terms of both time and expense. By simulating movement along the principal routes of the Roman road network, the main navigable rivers, and hundreds of sea routes in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and coastal Atlantic, this interactive model reconstructs the duration and financial cost of travel in antiquity.

Taking account of seasonal variation and accommodating a wide range of modes and means of transport, ORBIS reveals the true shape of the Roman world and provides a unique resource for our understanding of premodern history.

Time is relative to the point of view of the observer.  Regardless of your respective definition of a “year”, you are traveling through time in the physical universe, as measured by one or more monitoring systems devised by man to track the motion of particles through space.  Here is a short list of definitions of the word “year”.

The galactic year, also known as a cosmic year, is the duration of time required for the Solar System to orbit once around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.[1] Estimates of the length of one orbit range from 225 to 250 million “terrestrial” years.  Solar System is traveling at an average speed of 828,000 km/h (230 km/s) or 514,000 mph (143 mi/s),which is about one 1300th of the speed of light.  If you could travel at that speed in a jet aircraft along the equator, you would go all the way around the world in approximately 2 minutes and 54 seconds.  Even at this speed, it still takes the solar system 230 million years to orbit the center of the Milky Way Galaxy one time.  Hang on and enjoy the ride!

For those who prefer shorter periods of time, here are a list of the Wikipedia definitions of other “years”
