Time Slip [1] (Also known as Time Warp) [2] is a paranormal phenomena that occurs when a dimensional rift in the space-time continuum is formed. It causes either two different eras or dimensions to temporarily overlap. [3] Both the Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters experienced it.

HistoryEdit

On one Christmas Eve, a Time Slip appeared somewhere in upstate New York before the turnpike. The Ghostbusters stumbled upon it after Ecto-1 stalled. They arrived in Camden Town during the year 1837 and mistakenly trapped the Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present, and Ghost of Christmas Future. This altered the history. Instead of repenting, Ebenezer Scrooge declared war on Christmas and wrote "A Christmas Humbug." Scrooge was hailed as a hero and Christmas was abolished for all time. The Ghostbusters returned the ghosts to their proper time and the timeline was restored to normal. Once Christmas Eve was over, the Time Slip also vanished.

During Mardi Gras, Malachi possessed the people of Muddy Flat with his magic music. The more people in his control, the more powerful Malachi could become. [4] With that power, he attempted to push back time to his glory days of 1942. [5] According to Egon Spengler, this Time Slip phenomenon created a discontinuity in the local fabric of the space time continuum which could seriously strain it. [6] [7] If successful, Malachi would induce a chrono-synclastic infundibulum, a world without progression. [8] [9] [10] Malachi and the Time Slip was off set with a correctly tuned counter-oscillation. The anti-distortion vibrations were programmed into musical notation and the Ghostbusters rocked out. [11] [12] [13] The ghost and his cronies were dispersed, Muddy Flat returned to normal, and the continuum was preserved.

In the New England countryside, a Time Slip formed in a cavern hidden by a large waterfall. The rift led to a parallel dimension inhabited by Bigfoot. Bigfoot's presence in another dimension led to the disastrous build up of cosmic forces. The Ghostbusters returned Bigfoot to his world as the Time Slip closed up permanently. [14] [15]

Some time later, while in the process of relocating headquarters due to the development of an expressway, the Ghostbusters bled off energy from the Traps. Peter Venkman made a costly error and the team was teleported to April 10th, 1959. Their presence disrupted the natural order of things. The resulting tear also allowed ghosts to invade that era. [16] [17] With a fully charged Trap, the Ghostbusters helped drive them back and resealed the tear by going back to their proper time. [18] They returned home to learn they altered history. The Firehouse was to be preserved as a historical landmark because several firefighters stationed there stopped the "Ghost Invasion of 1959."

On July 30, 1997, another Time Slip appeared. This time, it was also in the basement of the Firehouse. In an apocalyptic future, a ghost named Tempus led an army and took over the world. A freedom fighter named Isaac attacked Tempus with a Ghost Bomb. Instead of dispersing him, it caused Tempus to split into two and create a Time Slip. Tempus could then co-exist into both eras and Isaac switched places with Kylie Griffin. While the Tempus of the present attempted to open the Containment Unit and fulfill his destiny, the Extreme Ghostbusters and the freedom fighters confined each essence of the entity at the exact spot of the Time Slip. This resulted in another Time Slip. Once Tempus was made one again, he was successfully trapped. Kylie was returned to the present and Isaac to the future. While it is unknown if the future was changed, Egon surmised that time would always be in flux.
