Give us time … Your universe is only one of many. Each one creates probable versions of itself. When you journey on the earth you move around the outside of it. So far, your ideas of space travel involve that kind of surface navigation. Earth trips, however, are made with the recognition of their surface nature.2 When you think in terms of traveling to other planets or to other galaxies, though, the same kind of surface travel is involved. As closely as I can explain it in your terms, your concepts of space travel have you going around space rather than directly through it.
(9:40.) Give us time … You are also viewing your solar system through your own time perspective, which is relative. You “look backward into time,” you say, when you stare outward into the universe. You could as well look into the future, of course. Your own coordinates3 close you off from recognizing that there are indeed other intelligences alive even within your own solar system. You will never meet them in your exterior reality, however, for you are not focused in the time period of their existence. You may physically visit the “very same planet” on which they reside, but to you the planet will appear barren, or not able to support life.
In the same way, others can visit your planet with the same results. There is then a whole great inner dimension even to the space that you know, that you do not perceive. There are intelligent beings outside of your own galaxy, “adjacent” to you. Theoretically, you can visit them with some vast improvements in your technology, but great amounts of time would be involved. Others have visited your own planet in that particular fashion. Yours is still a linear technology. Some intelligent beings have visited your planet, finding not the world you know but a probable one.4 There are always feedbacks between probable systems. A dominant species in one may appear as a bizarre trace species in another. More will be said about this and your planet later in the book.5 The closest equivalent to your own kind of intelligence and being can actually be found not by following the outer skin of space, but by going through it, so to speak.

Now: In the same way you can be allied and in tune with other probabilities that do not coincide with your space-time axis. The exterior universe with its galaxies — as you understand it, and on that level of activity — can be encountered on certain rigid space-time coordinates. You can visit other planets only in your present (underlined). Your present may be the past or the future as far as inhabitants of a given planet are concerned. Your physical senses will only operate in their and your present.

Theoretically, a thoroughly educated space traveler in your time, landing upon a strange planet, would be able to adjust his own consciousness so that he could perceive the planet in various “sequences” of time. If you land upon a planet in a spaceship and find volcanoes, you would, perhaps, realize that other portions of that planet might show different faces. You have confidence in your ability to move through space, so you might then explore the terrain that you could not see from your original landing point. If you did not understand the change in qualities of space, you might imagine that the whole planet was a giant volcano.
You do not understand as yet, however, that in a way you can move through time as you move through space — and until you understand that, you will not know the meaning of a true journey, or be able to thoroughly explore any planet — or any reality, including your own.
You imagine that your own earth is mapped out, and all frontiers known, but the linear aspects of your planet’s life represent a most minute portion of its reality.

I hasten to add that it’s only of academic interest to us, though, whether the universe disperses itself through an eternity of frozen expansion or compresses itself into a cosmic fireball of unbelievable proportions. Our scientists have projected either ending many billions of years into the future, although in the meantime, “only”‘ an estimated five billion years from now, our own aging, exploding sun will have consumed the inner planets of the solar system — including the earth.

7. Of the books on astronomy that I’ve read (and I’m way short of scanning any great number of them, obviously), only one contains a brief mention of a similar notion in connection with space travel — that is, journeying almost instantaneously in a straight line between planets instead of following the relativistic curve of space. The volume’s learned author treats the idea as just an idea, however, and a pretty far-out one at that — while here Jane demonstrated her version of the same principle in a practical way. See Note 2 for Session 709.
