Time travel? Time Machine? You may only heard about this on some sci-fi TV series like CSI or Dr Who but someone out there is really making serious attempts to bridge space and time with a time travel machine.
Charles Blanca presents a different and actually splendid design with his time machine model he called The Madeline Concept.
It’s a pretty fantastic wonder I should say. And it’s a real thing. The designer stated his belief that our sense of smell does have something to do with our memory. He believes that we might just go back our past simply by breathing in that certain smell that would refresh our memories. And he built this time travel machine with this idea in mind.
As I quote him, “So small and discrete molecules though so powerful when we come across them, odours are rooted in our memory and make us travel through time. Madeleine offers to help us find the smells we have lost because of the evolution of our living environment. In a convivial place, everybody will be able to experience a creative immersion in a time-travelling capsule. But more than a product, Madeleine is a community linked by olfactory experience and by the expression of their senses. Let’s wake our sense of smell up and share what inspires us…”
“Find the smell you lost.” I was caught on that one. Actually I have been fascinated with our physiological methods of perception especially with this particular sense. I’ll promise to post some other things that not everyone knows about sense of smell. I’m still gathering my notes on that still.
But this time travel model design is like something that came out of a MI movie!
Well, I guess the Earth is in dire need of a good, trusty time machine. Really. I could use a little time rambling myself. Find the smell I lost, hmm, maybe my ex's perfume? shucks.
I guess it only makes sense that we really do interact with our surroundings without us knowing it. We breath in episodes of our life, taste the sweet or bitter incidents and watch sorrow or happiness unfold. And that's all we do everyday.
