Eddies in Space-Time Continuum

Eddy who?? whats he doing in Space-Time continuum?? What the hell is space- time continnum?? What the frikin hell is continnum anyways?? ahem.. ahem... Who cares...
I have been re-reading the master work HHGTG - 5 series novel by Genius Douglas Adams.. Hence the title inspired from that....
Was watching this Romantic comedy "Kate and Leopold" on TV. Now dont ask me why am I watching such Tear Jerkers or Chick flicks... and why the second post on a such kind of movies.. When you live in a place, where you dont have much of a choice to see English Programmes, you have to put up with what you get.. evening movies that incl. the 3 hours epic Titanic.. Pity me... buhu.. buhu..
Well anyways.. In the movie, a guy travels back in time , not using a time-machine unlike most of the Time travel movies, but due to the Gap in the Time Field... I thought that was pretty interesting concept for a romantic movie and got me very interested in the movie. So a guy travels back and forth between 18th and 20th century by falling off Brooklyn Bridge. Apparently, thats where there is a GAP in Time field or Domain(if you want to gt very geeky). So he can jump off that bridge in the 20th century and land on the ground in 18th century and vice-versa.
Now call it a Black hole or Worm hole or Eddies or Currents in the Space-Time Continuum as Douglas Adams likes to call it.
Isnt that prety interesting to stand in one place on Earth(itself an insignificant part of the whole universe) and then just travel back and forth in time to see how this particular location would be in different time periods?? Wouldnt it be amazing to see the history of that place and how it evolved into the present and how the future shapes it?? all this w/o needing to invent a time machine... and all this is just One-dimensional travel.. Time travel and space coordinates fixed...
What would be even more interesting is to travel in multi-dimensional Time-Space coordinates.. But I am not sure if we can comprehend how it will be... Like for instance travel from one place in the present to go to a different place in the past through several different places in-between the present and past... I would go nuts if even to imagine such a phenomenon... But wouldnt it be amazing just to "fall and fly" and then catch this train journey through the Gap in the Time Domain by falling onto the right spot and then keep traveling .... Seems like a fantasy.... Seems like you are on ecstasy.. Is it really so?? I dunno... What d'ya think?? Lemme know if there is a real time gap in the brooklyn Bridge, I can risk my life for such an experience even if its One-D Time travel.... :)
P.S: Oh.. Space-time geeks(Scientists incl.)... Pardon me, for such reckless usage of High level Geeky words like Worm Holes and Black holes and Eddies and even Space-time w/o understanding them properly... then again they are just some english words to me and I can use them how I want to, depending on my understanding of those words, which may or may not be the same as what your dictionary says... So Sc*** you if you ve got any problems with it.. :-D)

Nice post!
Wish we really had a time machine. It would be more interesting to see how it practically worked.
Though I dont totally understand the Space -time continuum. I am sure it is an interesting topic to investigate.
