A time slip (also called a timeslip) is an alleged paranormal phenomenon in which a person, or group of people, travel through time via unknown means. As with all paranormal phenomena, the objective reality of such experiences is disputed. Some believe that the flow of time can change or even be reversed from place-to-place. In the Timeslip TV series, the children are able to travel backwards to visit their parents as young people and forwards to meet themselves as adults (Wikipedia).Tweet This Post
