The time gap and the story of the Spanish soldier who traveled 17,000 km in just one sleep

Perhaps no one is unfamiliar with the concept of teleporting from one land to another in the blink of an eye. But in practice, is this possible? Many people think not, but the story of the soldier Gil Perez, living in the century will make us think again…

Gil Perez was a Spanish soldier who lived in the Philippines in the sixteenth century. He was part of the bodyguard tasked with guarding the Palacio Del Gobernador – the Manila governor’s building. Before the story takes place, Gil Perez is just an ordinary soldier like everyone else.

However, the turning point of his life came on October 24, 1593. It was the day the governor of Manila – Gomez Perez Dasmarinas was as‌sassinated by Chinese pirates. Gil Perez, after completing the task, felt extremely tired, so he leaned against a wall to rest for a while.

In the blink of an eye, Gil Perez appeared at a place nearly 17,000 km from Manila. It’s the Plaza Mayor in Mexico City. At that time, Gil was still wearing the uniform of a Philippine bodyguard. Gil’s appearance surprised everyone around him and himself too. Gil has no memory of how he managed to get to faraway Mexico in just one sleep.

Gil Perez brought his strange story to the people around him. He still vividly remembers the image of the governor of Manila being as‌sassinated, but cannot imagine how he would move. People in Mexico City believed that Gil Perez was a deserter and possibly related to Satan, so he was imprisoned.

Two months later, news from Manila reached Mexico City via the Manila Galleon. Everything was like the story told by the mysterious imprisoned soldier. Someone on this ship even saw Gil Perez on duty on October 24, 1593, that is, the day he fell asleep and was present in Mexico after waking up.

Everything broke, Gil Perez was released and returned to the Philippines to continue working as a bodyguard. It is said that, after that mysterious teleportation, Gil Perez never performed that ability again.

Until now, the mysterious story of the 16th century soldier Gil Perez is still a big question mark for mankind. However, this is not the only case in the world.

In the book Miscellanies published in 1696 by author John Aubrey (1626-1697), it is said that his acquaintance in Portugal witnessed the trial of a man who claimed to have flown through the air. from Eastern India to Goa (Portugal) in a split second in 1655.

Or as the case of another Scotsman who can fly through the air many times in the presence of those around him. John Aubrey as‌serts that, at the time (1671), a number of living people could testify to the above story.

So how to explain this teleportation phenomenon?

Science’s hypothesis

For any two points on a piece of paper, the shortest distance is probably the line connecting those two points. They call it the way the bird flies. However, if we fold the paper so that the two points touch, we will be able to travel from the beginning to the end in just one step.

This may sound implausible, but this is a pictorial representation of a wormhole, or Einstein-Rosen Bridge, a kind of shortcut in space-time that connects locations in the universe. This is based on Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity and General Relativity.

The above wormhole is a form of a different dimension of space and time, where the concept of space and time is different from ours. That is, if we can enter another space-time dimension, we can instantly travel to places millions of miles away. This is not unreasonable, when many famous scientists have hypothesized the existence of many universes (multiverse).
