What is generally meant by a :TIME WAAa "TIME WARP"?

A time warp is general a reference to a disruption in the time continuum. Usually this allows for temporal travelling. It has to my knowledge never been attempted. This does not mean it cannot occur. It may simply mean that those who attempt it have yet to find their way back to this epoch. Time is a tricky business. There are no landmarks as one might find in the 3 dimensional space we occupy.

Or, we might say we (myself included) are watching a bit too much of Star Trek......beam me up scottie!
