To Luis and the List,

So, you admit that there was a missing time, but you reject the
hypothesis of a teleportation. It is your right to do so, but,
when reading again your posts, I don't see any clear argument
against it. I am not saying that the teleportation is proven
either. But there is a strange time effect!

Katharina said that, apparently, she crossed the airport in a
very short time, and she does not remember exactly how.

Her watch showed the same time of 3:20. when she arrived at the
luggage claim area. You said yourself, in your message of Feb 1,
that it should take at least 15 minutes, in any big airport.

Then you admit that she could have been teleported:

"Then, 'they' discover their time-machine also did not work
properly and teleported her to the luggage claim area".

Now, what argument do you propose against it?

In your message of Feb 7, you "bid for a simpler EM effect
(clock stoppage), because teleportation would not be enough, it
should have been time travel!"

Sorry, but I don't understand. You seem to propose now an
stranger hypothesis!

This time, you remark is pure caricature of a rich and complex
book. Actually, Budd Hopkins and Carol Rainey, in their 'Final
Words', present somewhat differing viewpoints.

That, alone, shows that they don't claim to have all the

Budd does not "change road", and does not "maintain".

He just presents and discusses, with Carol, a bunch of
interesting ideas.
