That is just a bunch of assumptions regarding issues in a field not yet completely understood by leading academics. Your claims are way too ambitious considering the utter lack of evidence or proof provided.

if you wish to understand time more thouroughly i would recommend the teachings of the i-ching. (book of change) i would also highly recommend listening to terence mkenna's lectures reguarding his timewave zero software, the base of which is derived from the i ching wave.

I don't believe it's possible.

Simply because all the events that happened in 2011 are gone. They don't really exist anymore. Maybe they exist as light energy (like a supernova exploded 1000 years ago and just reached the telescope) but they just don't exist physically anymore.

So it's just impossible to go back in time.


And I believe the future doesn't exist yet either. We are moving according to each time frame. We can't move ahead of that.

The speed of light thing affects your age, time passes slower for you, that's why you can stay alive in the future. But between the point where you enter speed of light to the point where you stop, things have happened between that period.

You didn't just zap into a future without things happening in between... I don't know if I'm making sense.


What I'm trying to say is that there is no "past" universe or "future" universe for us to zap ourselves into.

Sure we can freeze ourselves and defreeze ourselves a thousand years later to be in a "future", but I doubt we can just zap ourselves in a device to go to the future ahead of a time frame.

Maybe not time travel but it could be a type reality show in the future.if someone can create a machine that enables people to view the past for entertainment and educational purpose. Then people can find out what their ancestors really got up to and learn a more accurate history. Otherwise there's no point in messing with time and I wouldn't want to fixate too much on pasts and futures and miss out on the present.

It seems through relativity you can slow it down or speed it up.

Someone probably already wrote this but i got tired of reading after like the 20th page of comments
But wouldn't you have to plan your travel to make sure you were exactly where the earth was in the past/future as where you are in the present? (due to earths rotation, the orbit, all that stuff)
Otherwise you would just be in outer space ( and die! ) or i guess you could plan it to still be on the earth but you might land somewhere completely different, like in the ocean or slice yourself on two sides of a wall!!

Watched some show and apparently when you are standing near a big enough mass, time seems to slow down for the person standing near the mass . So i guess its possible to go to the future technically as long as you are standing near a mass but its almost impossible because you need a big enough object with alot of mass to actually slow down time by alot. probably a black hole will do but I dont think anyone wants to stand near it looool

Pretty sure it's impossible to go backwards in time. However it is very possible to go forward in time. In fact, people who live at a higher altitude from the center of the earth will seem to experience time at a slower rate, due to the difference in gravitational field strength. It is possible to work out the exact amount with General Relativity, but the result will be very very very very very small .

One can also travel forward in time by moving very fast. An object moving with a higher velocity in reference to a slower object will seem to experience time faster than the reference object. This calculation is actually very simple with Special Relativity. T = t/Sqrt[1 - (v^2)/(c^2)], where t is the passage of time from the point of view of the observer, T is the time from the point of view of the traveler, v is the relative velocity and c is the speed of light 3*10^8. Units in SI of course!

It's easy but it takes a long time. For example, not that long ago I started time traveling and it has taken me about 25 years to make it to 2012 and if all goes well in another 10 years I'll finally land in the year 2022.

I'd like to think that someone would actually make one! I mean.. Wouldn't it be amazing to go back in time and save yourself from your embarrassing moments? *Wishful Thinking*

I will given a change to use time travel i will go to future because i wanna see what will happen to me.Should i be a traveler when i get old.Today i am a traveler and Finland in one of my top list because i wanna experience cheap hotels at http://www.finlandiahotels.fi/ where i heard many traveler wants to accommodate.

I hope that it's not possible. I've read and watched more than enough stories/movies to be well aware how complicated and dangerous time travel is.

I wouldn't want to mess with time, things are nice the way they are. I prefer making a difference now
