hmm id like to think that in the future we can travel through time but i guess certain rules would have to be thought out like you cant let the past you see the present you [if that makes sense] and you can't mess with the past, you can only watch it kind of thing.

Time travel is could be possible, not with technology we have now nor the brain power people have now. to fathom time travel is not capable by the human brain. but also TIME is the true issue. to travel through time, we would have to know the true Time for the universe. Our perception on time is earth's revolution around our sun, but that is not actually time. to figure out the true time of the universe and traveling through that would be completely different. because 50 years on earth could 0.0056 seconds in the universe. Also traveling through time would also imply time is a tangible, physical, substance. actually occupying space, which we simultaneously occupy. I personally believe time travel is possible to an extent, but to pick and choose where you would want to go in time is a different story all together.


as of now... i agree to you.
i'll maybe add some things later 'cause now i can't think of words to add to that...

Are we talking about how it would work in relation to Einstein's Theory of Relativity (The Twins Paradox...Not really time travel, but still), or something more along the lines of that suggested in Quantum Mechanics' Multiverse Theory (infinite number of universes of infinite size, due to infinite number of possible combinations in an infinite number of time lines ---> again not really time travel if you were to go to a different universe within a different time line), or something different entirely?

I think we are just talking about travelling back into time along one universe. Like I go back to june 28, 1914 and stop Franz Ferdinand from being assassinated, or something like that.

Sry then I would say that other than the possibility of using a wormhole, it just is not going to happen...Anyways if you were to go back in time you definitely not change anything. Personally if anything I would go forward in time, or if I was to go back in time I would go to a place where no matter what I did it did not have a large impact...Still I think it would be best to go forward in time, because the future definitely has to be better than it is now...

I don't think I would travel into the future or past, rather, I opt for the slow steady pace that my life is going at right now. I am content, no excitement for me, thank you!

What if you travel to the past and kill your Grandfather, can you ever travel back to your time? or do you cease to exist?


mauz, to that particular question...assuming time traveling is possible in such a sense, I think it will be physically impossible for you to get to kill your grandfather (at least before your father/mother was born).

I was listening to someone else talking about "Minority Report" yesterday and I think it could be used to explain this. It was explained in the movie how it is not possible for the main character to go somewhere else and stops himself from killing that other person... because things will come up to lead him to that point. In the example you brought up, since you were born already and is traveling back in time... things must come up to stop you from killing your grandfather, at least before your father/mother or you were born... i don't think you'd suddenly cease to exist out of 'thin air'... and thus, you'd probably be able to travel back in time.

time is just confusing to explain... i just had some thoughts about the phrase 'traveling through time' and its definition to us and to the universe in general. I don't think i can explain my thoughts clearly yet... so maybe i'll post later when that thought completely takes shape (in words).

I believe in the alternative universe theory. If I killed my grandfather a new universe would instantaneously be formed where My grandfather, and everyone after him would be dead. However, in our universe I would be unable to kill him.


Well in the Multiverse Theory a universe already exists for every possibility at every point in time, so in fact there is a universe where you did indeed kill your grandfather (an infinite number of them actually) and there are ones where you did not (another infinitely large group)...

Infinity +1 is still infinity...Would it create another universe though, or would that other universe have already existed?...That is the real question...
