126 years after the Eye of Harmony was created, the Time Lords were experimenting with Warp Matrix Engineering. They discovered that block transfer equations could be used to shift tracts of space-time into small pocket dimensions. When inside these micro-universes, space-time would fold back on itself in what some have termed the Escher Effect. With the addition of a Dimensional Interphase Point created by a Time Vector Generator it became possible to have this pocket universe be both present and not present in normal space. This was the key to trans-dimensional engineering and led to the construction of the Type 10 TARDIS that was dimensionally transcendental.
