Whoever wrote this either had this experience or talked to other people that did. This is not therefore a fictional account. It might have been Hollywooded up and likely was. But, this was based upon many experiences many of us had including myself.
For Example, the Green CRT Screen was what displayed the plans for me to build a spaceship when I was in church. They were concentrating on the engine design for a time space ship. So, the most detail was how to construct the engine itself to power this ship.
