Comments on Hide An Event With Temporal Cloaking
What would you want to put in the 'time hole'? (Read
the complete story)
|"I would be interested to know what, if anything, is happening 'within' that hidden event. Since it can't be observed does time pass for the hidden event? If not then it would be like the stasis field from Larry Niven's Known Space and the 'stopper bubbles,' from John Varley's "Red Lightning." Other thoughts are of the various times things in science fiction are "out of phase" with the rest of reality: from the U.S.S. Pegasus in STNG to the TARDIS."

|"I didn't see any mention of time stopping in the cloaked area. Other readers can see the Technovelgy entries for Slaver stasis field and stasis box, from Niven's works. (I'll add an entry for the 'stopper bubbles' - thanks!) Also, Frank Herbert had fun with the same idea in the 1980's in what he referred to as nullentropy bins."
