Marshall Barnes, R&D Eng., is the world’s breakthrough researcher in the area of time, time travel and parallel universe research, a “most read writer” of these subjects on Quora.com, and author of the book, “Paradox Lost:The True Geometries of Time Travel”. His experiments last year proved not only that parallel universes from quantum mechanics are real (out doing CERN’s Mir Faizal) but would be the result of any backward in time action, whether through retrocausality or time travel.
