These results are pretty restrictive in limiting the existence of certain topology changes, but as the author remarks, one can abandon the idea of spacetime being everywhere-Lorentzian if one gives up the strong equivalence principle, an idea he clearly is not comfortable with.

Global enstein and the topological censorship are used to give a mathematically precise definition of a traversable wormhole, although the censorship theorem is not proven. But science fiction is not the only realm where these concepts thrive.
