John Hawking had spent his entire career working to prove his Interuniverse Resonance Theory. After the events of the Shinigami disaster destroyed much of his previous research he was forced to start over, something he would later say was his greatest blessing.
In 2025 Hawking had been collaborating closely with a colleague inside the Blaisdale Corporation. After the disaster in 2029, Hawking had become certain that what had allowed the Shinigami 101D to escape destruction was a technology based on his theories.
The Interuniverse Resonance Theory states that all matter in the Universe vibrates at a specific base frequency. This frequency is unique and is what binds matter to our specific universe.
Hawking believed that given enough energy, matter could be forced out of its origin universe and into another. This displaced matter could not however exist in the other universe due to its mismatched resonance frequency and would be instantaneously forced back into our universe. Hawking also theorized that matter forced out of its universe would not re-enter at the same position at which it left. Instead it would re-enter at a new position relative to the energy used to force it out initially.
On December 8th 2051, after years of development Hawking successfully built a device that was able to shift an atom of iodine one billionth of a micron. Hawkings’ device used Nueon particles to alter the resonance frequency of the iodine atom enough for it to be push out of our universe.
