This group of objects has presented a window into a high-quality lifestyle powered by the latest technologies. These tools and devices have become the reinforced eyes, arms, legs, and even brains of human beings, enabling more wild imaginations centuries against to be realised and popularised.

Ansible (awaiting arrival of the exhibit)

 

This object cannot currently be displayed, it forms part of a consignment of objects that were lost  during time travel transfer and have not yet been recovered. Apart from the ansible,  we suspect the other objects in the consignment were tools/equipment for everyday life daily (including communication devices, means of transportation, miniatures of future settlement, household tools, common furniture, etc.) in future worlds.

An ansible is a superluminal communication device that sends faster than light speed information (using the T-symmetry emergent phenomena of quantum entanglements and cosmic string tensioned trachyon particles) through traversable wormholes. Its presence here would allow the Museum of Beyond to communicate directly with our place-time. The absence of an ansible in our time prevents a direct two way communication, messages are only possible via unpredictable Twitter posts.  The loss of this device has been a major impediment in planning for the current exhibition, and reveals the possibility and inaccuracy of time travelling, the potential to communicate across space time, and the role of conspiracy theories to create confusion about truth production (follow the link  below for further details).

Ansible (awaiting arrival of the exhibit)

 

A time travelling consignment of 10 exhibits was sent from the Museum of Beyond for inclusion in the 0002020 temporary exhibition.  A poorly calibrated portal setting resulted in the where/when arrival of this consignment being Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk in 0001981. Time travel is notoriously imprecise ("Travelling back in time is like being at the controls of an intricate ship that requires the most delicate and precise touch to steer through shallows and reefs and enemy fire…" Burroughs 1983, 289. It is widely considered that Burroughs was an experienced time traveller and was in control of the vessel that was transporting the objects from the Museum of Beyond). There was some confusion about the unexpected arrival that resulted in much speculation about the purpose of the consignment. This is most popularly known as the Rendlesham UFO incident from sightings of the arrival on December 26 0001981. Unfortunately, the 10 objects were lost in 0001981 and their whereabouts are still not known in 0002020. To address this, local people, have been searching for the lost consignment for the past 40 years, and Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service have carried out metal detecting survey and archaeological excavations since 0002007. Of the 5,000 archaeological objects that were recovered, recorded, catalogued, photographed and drawn, none of the Museum of Beyond exhibits were amongst them. This year, a four-year community archaeology project (Rendlesham Revealed) is taking place to systematically search for the priceless exhibits, under the pretence of excavating Anglo-Saxon royal settlements in the Deben valley (https://heritage.suffolk.gov.uk/rendleshamrevealed). We are hopeful that the concerted efforts of SCCAS and local volunteers will be able to discover and process the 10 missing exhibits, so that they can be included in the display before the end of the temporary exhibition.
