Dear Mr. Curiel,

i found your paper interesting. first reaction was actually a wish that you might have said even more, but i'm glad you've said what you have.

re:

"According to this the elementary entities may operate in a three dimensional space and in a plane of time, instead of the linear time that we perceive."

something like this seems quite...

MR MATT KOLASINSKI:

THANKS FOR YOUR INTERESTING COMMENT.I DERIVE THE PROCEDURE REGARDING THE PRECOGNITION PROCESS FROM MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:1-I FILLED A NOTE BOOK WITH MY DREAMS,DATES,

APPROXIMATE HOURS AND WITH THE RESPECTIVE CONFIRMATIONS,

LIKE NEWSPAPER NOTES,THAT HAPPENED NORMALLY 2 TO 3 DAYS AFTER

(FOR EXAMPLE PLANE ACCIDENTS,ETC).UNFORTUNATELY I LOST IT

2-I DEVELOP A SYSTEM TO WIN THE LOTTO MACHINES, THAT HAVE

1 MILLION OF POSSIBILITIES ( FROM 000000 TO 999999).

I PLAYED 20 TIMES AND WON 10 TIMES, CASHING APPROXIMATELY

80,000 $.BY THE CONTRARY WHEN I PLACED A RANDOM NUMBER I

NEVER WON.THE SYSTEM IS SUMMARIZED IN THE LAST PART OF THE

ESSAY (BACKWARD TIME):BEFORE GOING TO SLEEP I ASSURE MYSELF THAT I WILL WIN AND PLACE MY MIND IN BLANK.2-AFTER AWAKENING

I TAKE NOTE OF THE DIFFERENT IMAGES DREAMED IN SEQUENCE

3-I DIVIDE THE DREAM IN SIX DIFFERENT IMAGES AND ASSIGN

A NUMBER TO EACH ONE FROM 0 TO 9, ACCORDING TO THE LIKENESS

OF THE IMAGE WITH THE IMAGE-NOT THE MEANING-OF A NUMBER,

FOR EXAMPLE A DUCK MAY BE THE NUMBER 2.4-I FORM A SIX FIGURES NUMBER AND PLAY IT,FOR EXAMPLE THE FIRST TIME THAT

I USED THIS METHOD I WON 8,000 $ WITH THE NUMBER 808111.

I DREAMED THAT MYSELF(0) WAS SURROUNDED BY FAT BLACK PERSONS

(8) AND AT DISTANCE MANY SKINNY(1) HYNDU PERSONS VERE

LOOKING AT ME.SO 808111.THANKS.JOSE CURIEL

Hello Mr. Curiel,

i see that the structure you set up for recording precog. dreams and for 'programming' an intent for the dreams would both be fairly effective, as well as your approach to interpretation of the data - a very clever approach to addressing numbers. my compliments on that.

thank you for sharing your experiences and normally i'd be more than happy to chat about such things, but have a strong preference here for staying closer to the topic of time and the significance precognition has for how we think about time.

thanks again,

matt kolasinski

Dear Jose Curiel,

The essay The Theory of Time, Space and Gravitation is the interesting alternative to the special and general theory of relativity. I regret, but time paradoxes and any other paradoxes there are absent.

Regards,

Robert Sadykov
