In Buddhism, this makes perfect sense because: All things existing at once – there is no time.
Season Two begins by bringing back some characters we have met before. In Episode 6 we met “The Stranger,” who introduced us to the Charges d’ affairs. The, in Episode 9, we met the daoist Wei Boyang. Both of these characters return in Episode 1 of Season Two.
In The Tales of Sage & Savant, Dr. Sage and Professor Savant send their conscious minds through time and space to inhabit other bodies. They retain those experiences when they return to their own bodies. Part of our theory behind this mode of time travel is the current theory that thoughts are quantum objects rather than physical aspects chained to the cerebral matter of our brains. Recent tests have aimed at proving quantum objects can travel through time. Therefore if thoughts are quantum, they would also be able to travel through time. This is great fodder for Science Fiction!
Sage and Savant gallivanted through Season One with travels that ranged from the near future (NYC 1899 – episode 4) to the distant past (Pompeii 79 – episode 10). They even went into the distant future in episode 11, but it was never determined exactly how far forward they went. So, how far can they go?
When looking for material for episodes, our writer Eddie Louise likes to find moments in history that have an impact. In the month of May, she has chosen the Wrack of the Medusa, a French frigate which struck the Bank of Arguin. Not only does this provide a moment in history where Sage & Savant can easily travel to – lots of dead bodies – but the events that transpired were beyond imagination.
George Hegel was an early 19th century philosopher and one of the great systematic thinkers in Western philosophy. He developed his triadic method (Entwicklung) in which philosophy would not contradict experience.
Pompeii was an ordinary city, with shops and markets, bars and theaters, temples and homes. They were like many other cities found in the Roman Empire and throughout what we now call Italy. There were roughly 15k people living in Pompeii at the time Vesuvius erupted, living in everything from luxury homes to small flats and apartments. It had been around for probably a couple hundred years, so it was well established in what happened in the daily lives of its inhabitants. In less than a day, their lives and the landscape around them would be forever changed.
Dr Sage has been exploring the connection of music to time travel. Music also plays a big role in our episodes, most especially with our Featured Artists. Music can change the way we look at life. We look forward to increasing the role of music in future episodes and letting Dr Sage discover the role of music in her own life.
