I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

1770'S COLONIAL ERA LIGHTING ROD SET

HERE'S A FIND THAT I MADE OVER THE LAST WEEKEND.  NOT ONE BUT TWO COLONIAL ERA LIGHTING RODS.  PEOPLE FROM THAT ERA WERE FASCINATED WITH ELECTRICITY.  ESPECIALLY, I WOULD IMAGINE AFTER BEN FRANKLIN'S WRITINGS ON HIS ELECTRICITY EXPERIMENTS.  THE RODS WOULD BE MOUNTED ON A SOLID SUPPORT LIKE A FENCE POST OR SOLID STONE WALL AND IT WOULD ATTRACT LIGHTING BOLTS.  I AM SURE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE A SHOW.  I JUST WOULDN'T WANT TO BE STANDING NEARBY.-THE TIME SEARCHER
