TARDIS Technical Index

Hyper Loom

(Conception of a Space-Time Event)

A TARDIS is not built it is grown. The process used to create a TARDIS is one of the greatest secrets of the Time Lords. The initial block transfer equations necessary to create a Complex Space-Time Event like a TARDIS can only be assembled in a null-zone connected to the Eye of Harmony. This null-zone is called the Hyper-Loom or sometimes the Womb. In a very real sense, Complex Space-Time Events like a TARDIS always exist. These Events take the form of a complicated coded-series of Block-Transfer equations, which define their existence and position across all of Space-Time. The equations are based on the fundamental principles of movement, travel and infinite recursion. They serve as the foundation for the Time Travel Capsule (TTC). Being a four dimensional being, a TARDIS assists the Time Lords in its own creation. Legend has it that the Matrix, the Mother of all Gallifreyan Timeships, has always existed and created the Gallifreyans just so she would have a point of origin. This same legend also states that the Matrix secretly controls the Time Lords.

The Hyper-Looms provide the Capsule with a block-transfer connection to the Prime Eye of Harmony on Gallifrey. It is this block-transfer connection that serves as the heart of the Complex Event. The Space-Time Event combined with the Eye of Harmony connection forms an Extra-Dimensional Framework known as the Metastructure.
