“They are like tides or waves between planets in a star system” said Professor Aktion the lead scientist at the Solar Institute of Science on Luna. She went on to say “… the quantum flow phenomena have been known, at some level, for centuries, and these particular fluctuations have been in the data all along. It was only as a result of a chance conversation at the water cooler between two researchers, Prof Janet Ffoulkes working on dimensional transfer theory and a junior cosmologist Dr Hans Stone, that the data was looked at from a different perspective – where previously this had been filed under ‘…we know all about this, nothing to see here…’ we appear to have made the first fundamental scientific advancement in 400 years. Of course, the work has yet to be peer reviewed, but we have circulated the findings to all major institutes in human space for confirmation (or not)”. This discovery is not just causing ripples in space-time it is causing tidal waves in the scientific community because some are already speculating that this might cause a revision to humanity’s understanding of the nature of spacetime, parallel dimensions, time and the universe.
