The time code is a sequence of binary numbers which initiates a paradox-correcting timesphere. It is also a Level 87 code. This timesphere allows for one-way travel backwards through time, while simultaneously correcting any paradoxes that might ensue (usually with fatal results). The time code appeared in the Futurama movie Bender's Big Score and Decision 3012, as a Xeroxed copy.
The time code itself was located on Philip J. Fry I's arse. The time code itself is as follows:
- The time code is a count from 1 (001) to 6 (110) in binary, mirrored vertically.
- The time code also hides the initials of Matt Groening in it. If you join the zeros in the code, you'll get "M G". It is unknown if this is intentional or not.
- In MIPS Assembly, if we take the first 32 bits of this 36 bit string (left to right, top to bottom) and read them as machine code we get the following assembly instruction:
andi $a3, $t1, 41399
This is perfectly valid machine code.
