Portals and dimension holes in Scifi and fantasy

One of my favorite super powers. It all started when I saw the movie Jumper. You remember that movie don’t you. David Rice (Hayden Christensen who played Anakin Skywalker) discovers that he has the powers to teleport to places that he has already seen or visited at a very young age.

One of the first things that David does when he discovers his powers is he robs a bank. Hey why not. I mean all he has to do is teleport inside the bank and take the movie. Not the most moral thing to do but shit, better him than some “actual criminal.” Imagine having the powers to teleport where ever you want. Now that is a dream.

In fantasy and scifi movies and books these sort of powers have a taboo aspect to them. A god like strength and almost forbidden. The powers to be able to teleport are very out of this world and those who posses the power are almost invincible. Much like the power to stop time Like that asian dude from the series Heroes….what was his name again…damn I forgot…. of yeah Hiro Nakamura.

I am no Einstein, neither am I good at science but there is a fine line between dimension portals and time travel. ┬áIn the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry and Hermoine use a time travel tool to go back in time and save Harry’s god father.

In the Star Trek movie, Spock time traveled through a portal and entered a parallel universe where he meet umm….Spock.

Even in Naruto, Kaguya Otsutsuki uses travels through dimension and she is considered the god of Shinobi (only Naruto fans would know what I am talking about). The users of these powers always have some kind of authority. Like Caim in Fall Of A Demigod.

Some cosmic element is involve in the use of these powers. When I say cosmic I literally mean cosmic energy… you know…as in outer space. This is going to sound so third grade ( for all you pokemon fans). The pokemon who can time travel such as Celebi, these pokemon are psychic types. Hiro Nakamura used mind power to stop time. Kaguya Otsutsuki used her third eye to change dimensions and travel through portals. As for Harry and Hermoine ….ummmm….yeah magic does not have any explanation.

Overall, what is certain about portals and dimension is that it requires cosmic power which is related to the mind which is pure intellect and can therefor help us use our third eye to go into other dimensions( ok I am starting to confuse my self). These are godly powers for sure
