Super-Sargasso Sea

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Super-Sargasso Sea is a fictional dimension into which lost things go. Its existence was proposed by the writer Charles Fort, who, in the vein of the ancient Greek skeptics, did not actually believe that it existed but wished to present a theory that was just as plausible as those in the mainstream. The name alludes to the Sargasso Sea of the Atlantic Ocean, which lies next to the Bermuda Triangle.

It may be thought of as the spontaneous, anomalous teleportation of an object into another dimension.

In popular culture[edit]

  • The 1964 science fiction novel Into the Alternate Universe by A. Bertram Chandler seems to be inspired by Fort's idea, and depicts an actual "Super-Sargasso Sea" in space, where the protagonist discovers many lost spaceships and ocean-going ones, some fictional and some historical, which have "fallen through a dimensional barrier".
  • The DC comicbook Ironwolf portrayed a version of the Super-Sargasso Sea as a collection of drifting starships, some of which were so old they contained hanging gardens. Lord Ironwolf, the protagonist of the comicbook, flew a shuttle craft onto one of them to rescue Sebaba O'Neil from brutal barbarian creatures featured earlier in the comic.
  • The song "Touch-Tone Telephone" from the Lemon Demon album Spirit Phone makes a reference to the Super-Sargasso Sea.
