The Man From Another Dimension Kirby
Perhaps we’re just a sliver of time away from an alternate existence, or perhaps regular people we pass on the street are beings from another universe that have already mastered the art of dimensional travel. Quantum physics aside, our only information about these alternate realities comes from the tales of people who claim they found dimensional slips and traveled to unfathomable worlds. The Man From Taured.
On a seemingly normal day in 1. Tokyo, but upon landing at the Tokyo International Airport, his seemingly normal trip had taken a very drastic turn for the weird. When he handed over his passport to be stamped, the man was immediately interrogated as to the whereabouts of his origins. It wasn’t a case of racial profiling: While his passport looked authentic, it listed a country no one had ever heard of called Taured. The mystery man claimed his country was located between France and Spain, but when he was asked to point it out on a map, he pointed to the Principality of Andorra. Insisting he had never heard of Andorra and that Taured had existed for 1,0.
Japan on business, something he had been doing for the past five years. His passport seemed to back up his story, as it was covered in previous customs and visa stamps, and he carried with him legal currency from several European countries. He even had a driver’s license issued by the mysterious country and a checkbook containing checks from an unknown bank. After more interrogation and confusion for both parties, the traveler was sent to a nearby hotel until an official decision could be reached. There, two immigration officials stood outside the hotel door until morning. It was then that they discovered the mystery man had vanished without a trace, which was troubling, since the only possible exit was a window with no ledge 1.
The Tokyo police department conducted an extensive search but continually came up empty- handed. Hopefully, if he really was from a parallel Earth, he was able to find a way back to the comforts of his home in Taured.

While many have attempted to recreate the famous stylings of The Beatles, none have been able to match Fab Four’s unique vibe that made them so revolutionary.
But you don’t have to feel bad if you missed out on the ’6. John Lennon and George Harrison never died and the group is still making music. A man who has adopted the pseudonym of James Richards claims he was chasing his dog through Del Puerto Canyon in California on September 9, 2. Upon waking up, he found himself in a room next to an unrecognizable machine with a man who introduced himself as Jonas.
According to the strange man, while on a work- related trip for a dimensional travel agency, he had used the machine to transport the unconscious Richards to a parallel Earth in order to help him. Of course, the logical thing to do in this situation was to start discussing pop culture, which led Jonas and Richards to the topic of The Beatles, a band both dimensions shared. To Richards’s surprise, in this alternate dimension, The Beatles were all alive and still creating music. Richards brought back a souvenir cassette tape entitled Everyday Chemistry that was composed of Beatles songs never released in our dimension, which he helpfully uploaded to his website. Ong’s Hat. Ong’s Hat, New Jersey was founded sometime in the 1. Ong after he threw his hat up in the air and lost it to a tree branch. Who knows?) By the 1.
Ong’s Hat wasn’t forgotten. On the contrary, the abandoned town became the topic for one of the earliest Internet- based conspiracy theories. During the 1. 97. Two chaos scientists named Frank and Althea Dobbs developed a theory that consciousness could be modeled as its own universe, and if one could master one’s own “mind map,” the ability to control the chaos and possibly travel to other dimensions would be achieved.
According to a long- debunked hoax pamphlet, three other chaos scientists joined the Dobbses in founding the underground Institute of Chaos Studies in Ong’s Hat, New Jersey. It was here that they discovered the “gate” to alternate dimensions by putting scientists in a modified sensory deprivation chamber called “the egg.” Allegedly, they succeeded and mastered the science of interdimensional travel. On their explorations, they discovered a world that never developed human life but sustained plant life and water, which is where the chaos scientists were said to reside ever since. Carol Chase Mc. Elheney. In 2. 00. 6, as Carol Chase Mc. Elheney was driving from Perris, California back to her home in San Bernardino, she claims she decided to stop in her hometown of Riverside. It didn’t take long, however, for Carol to realize she wasn’t in the right town, although its geographical location was correct.
She claims she couldn’t find her childhood home or those of other family members. In fact, she didn’t recognize any of the houses, even though all the numbers were still correct. Even the cemetery where her grandparents were buried was just a fenced lot full of overgrown weeds. Was she simply in the wrong town? This would be a strong theory had she not found some landmarks that were familiar, such as the college and middle school. However, her relief in finding something recognizable was short- lived, as she soon noticed the eerie vibe surrounding the Riverside residents who were walking around.
She soon left, afraid to approach any of these sinister beings. Carol believes she had stumbled upon a parallel dimension, in which Riverside was a much darker place.
Her story can’t be confirmed because when she returned to Riverside a few years later for her father’s funeral, it had reverted back to the town she knew as a child. She never encountered the alternate dimension Riverside again. Lerina Garcia. In July 2. Lerina Garcia woke up in her bed on what seemed to like an ordinary day. However, as she went on with her normal routine, she claims she found small details that seemed peculiar.
For example, her sheets and pajamas were different from what she remembered wearing to bed. She resolved to brush off this curiosity and drove to her place of work, where she had been employed for 2. However, upon arriving at her department, she realized it wasn’t actually her department, despite being in its usual location on its usual floor.
Having decided that something weird was definitely going on, she returned home only to find the man from whom she says she had separated six months before, who acted like the separation had never taken place. Her new lover, whom she claimed she had been seeing for four months, was nowhere to be found. Even after hiring a private detective, his whereabouts remained unknown. There was no trace of him at his alleged residence nor any trace of his family. While it seems more likely that Garcia’s perceptions are the result of some neurological malfunction, she believes she woke up in a parallel universe. Unfortunately for the alleged dimensional traveler, Garcia has not been able to return to her normal universe, leaving her stuck in a dimension where she doesn’t belong with a boyfriend she can’t get rid of.
Pedro Oliva Ramirez. At around 1. 1: 0. PM on November 9, 1.
Pedro Oliva Ramirez claims he was driving from Seville, Spain to the town of Alcala de Guadaira. Being no stranger to this trek, it came as a shock when he allegedly went around a curve and found himself driving on an unfamiliar, straight, six- lane highway. He was surrounded by foreign structures and bizarre terrain.
He felt a sensation of heat while a chorus of voices rang out in the distance. One voice stood out among the others, telling him that he had just been teleported to another dimension. The cars around him, which passed at intervals of exactly eight minutes, were outdated and either white or beige with dark, narrow rectangles for license plates. After about an hour of confused driving, Ramirez found a turnoff to his left, where signs stood pointing to Alcabala, Malaga, and Seville. Ramirez began driving toward Seville, but when he stopped, he was astonished to find he was looking at his home in Alcala de Guadaira. When he retraced his steps, he could not locate the crossroads, the road sign, or the six- lane highway again. Gadianton Canyon.
In May 1. 97. 2, four girls were allegedly driving back to Southern Utah University after spending their Saturday at a rodeo in Pioche. While crossing the desolate Utah- Nevada state line at around 1. PM, they came upon a fork in the highway, where they veered to the left and began driving through Gadianton Canyon. Suddenly, the black pavement turned to white cement.
Believing they had simply taken a wrong turn, the girls headed back the way they came, but to their surprise, they were suddenly driving past grain fields and ponderosa pines with no desert in sight. They decided to stop at a roadside tavern to ask for directions but quickly changed their minds after one of the girls began screaming hysterically.
Four egg- shaped vehicles mounted on tricycle wheels with bright lights shining from the top of them began speeding after them. The petrified girls sped back through the canyon as the white cement changed back to its normal black asphalt, leading them into the familiar desert.
After wrecking in a creek, leaving them with three flat tires, they waited until morning to hike to Highway 5. As outlandish as their story seemed, the tire tracks they left are difficult to explain. The only tire tracks left by the girls’ Chevy ended abruptly only 2. The car was also missing a hubcap that was never located. Maybe it got lost somewhere in the Utah desert, or maybe it’s being displayed at a museum on the parallel Earth.
A few minutes with .. Photo: Eric Seals, Detroit Free Press)Buy Photo. Leon Keer spent much of last week crouched on the floor of the former Compuware Building in downtown Detroit, measuring and painting and tweaking. That guy has got to be so sore today. Keer, 4. 5, of the Netherlands, was invited to the One Campus Martius Building, as it's now called, to paint a giant mural.
But it's not just any giant mural. Using mathematics and lines and a precise talent with a brush, Keer paints murals that look like you could fall right into them. His three- dimensional artwork has been featured around the world. He took a break last week to stretch and speak with me for a few minutes. Leon, you've painted all over the word. How did we get you to come to Detroit? They saw, probably, my pictures on the Internet.
And then invited me over to come here and make some 3. D art. So it wasn't my idea, like, . Because there is some economical things happening here and a lot of opportunities. How did you learn your craft?
I've been a street art performer for like 2. Painting on canvas, making installations - - a lot of experience in years, with murals.
I did all the painting for Coca- Cola, Heineken, the bigger brands. So you learn your way with it, with a kind of nervousness, all kind of pains. You've been able to make a living out of it. Are you the wealthiest man in Holland?
No. When did you start, and when you're done how many hours will you have put into it? I started off Monday evening. And then Tuesday started with painting. So now it's Thursday, three days of painting.
And probably today or tomorrow morning, finished. How many hours in all do you think you will have put in? I mostly work 1. 0 hours, 1. Wow. Is your back killing you? No, only at night. Don't you get sore?
No, it's OK. I'm in a kind of phase when I'm working, so I don't feel any muscle ache. What does it feel like when you're working? What do you get out of it? Never thought about it. I think it's the only thing I can do. And trying to think about mathematical stuff. I try to evolve my brain in that matter.
Just to keep it awake. There's a lot of mathematics involved in 3. D painting, right? Yeah. It's a kind of - - how do you call it? I never knew what I should do with it but –Here we are!
Yeah, here we are. You're doing this live. Your work is being seen, evaluated, photographed, people are talking to you. What kind of reaction are you getting from folks? Most of them are very enthusiastic, not all of them. They ask questions about the technique and what it is supposed to be.
Buy Photo (Photo: Eric Seals, Detroit Free Press)Does that make you feel good when people react with amazement? I try to not focus too much on their attention. Because if you get a lot of pats on your shoulder, you might think, . For me, it's about focusing on my own artwork, and being the best critic for myself.
I see lots of Legos, superheros, references to videogames in your work. And not just in this work but in some other things I've seen online. What's that all about?
For me, it's kind of a recognizable theme that reminds me of - - a little bit - - youth. I want to bring a kind of vision in life. Also, to watch the spectators, that they have to think about their youth more ..
Are you commenting on anything? Sometimes, yeah. But it's always a kind of humoristic way.
It's not like I'm pointing the finger, . Anything else you want to say to the people of Detroit? Well, I just want to invite them ..
And I want to see a lot of photos on the Internet with this piece. Contact Jim Schaefer: 3. Follow him on Twitter: @Detroit. Reporter. Read or Share this story: http: //on.
