    Default Time Travel

    If time travel was possible, where would you go?

    Quick Olix! I just made this time machine that can take you approximately one month, and a week into the future!! Hop in, it takes some time to work, but you will be transported the the far flung future of 2009! The total time of the journey will be one month, and a week!

    Ooooh, the future!!!!

    Time travel is possible, but since our perceptions are limited to only a 4th dimensional universe which leaves us bound to relative space-time we can only travel "forward" in time. ( 4th dimensional "backwards" time travel is theoretically possible, but we lack the sufficient advanced technology to confirm it experimentally.)

    The most promising experiment in recent history, both for time-travel and for the possibility of interacting with higher dimensions was the creation of a Bose-Einstein Condensate that achieved the slowing of photons down to a velocity of near zero light-years. In other words, stopping relative time.

    cooool.
    i'd probably go back to like... 1978.
    i'm not sure what i'd do, but it'd be way cooler than life now.
    i'd track down my guy.
    i'd find baby me.
    i'd get into the punk scene at its birth and be a huge punk rockstar.

    I don't get the first paragraph. You mean traveling into the future is possible by stopping time for that specific object and person and letting the regular time pass by?

    I know that matter loses it's 2 dimensions at speed of light, one of them is time. So moving at the speed of light stops time. This was proved with famous experiment in which 2 synchronized atomic clocks were made and one was sent on the trip around the world and other was left on the place. When checked again the clock that was sent around the world was slightly late in comparison to the clock that was in one place.

    Now, theoretically traveling back in time is highly unlikely. We're still missing out on the theory of the quantum gravity for completion of TOE (theory of everything) and until that is here (looking at CERN) we can only speculate.

    I think I'd actually pick a lot of dates, but I'd target specific people and show up for an hour or so here and there throughout thier lives, that could be entertaining.

    Or I could go to the future and read a few history books


    So many options

    Yes, to both. You can speed up an object through space and because of the link between space-time aka. relativity, you will have sped up the experience of time. This has been proven by experiment like you said. But the draw back is that because of Einstein's famous equation Energy equals Mass times velocity (the speed of light squared), it would require near infite amounts of energy to propel anything near the size of a human being anywhere near the speed of light.

    You can also "slow time" which causes normal time-space to speed up relatively for the observer. This is the sensation you would experience when falling into a black hole singularity, time would either appear to freeze or speed up wildly. Only with the method I described you wouldn't suffer from the tidal forces aka. gravity ripping you apart for miles and then smashing you back down to a peanut.

    The main problem with the condensate is that it's not known what effects it could have on a human. It is a small structure with a very fragile state. It would require an unknown vast quantity to be able to accommodate a human. Once inside of it, I would theorize that the effects would be like what is known as suspended animation. Consciousness function would be a mystery too, although we could learn very much about it in such an experiment. Time could feel for the participant to speed up a billion years in one second or vice versa. It is also highly likely that your atomic structure could be severely warped in the process, although there is also a possibility that you could gain expansion of consciousness such as telepathy.

    As far as the idea of backwards time travel in the 3rd dimension, see Kip Thorne and John Wheeler's interpretation of a Kerr Vaccum, that is a vacuum occurring inside of a rotating space-time cylinder such as a black hole or worm hole.

    I talk about the 3rd and 4th dimensions with regard to time travel because according to the EPR Paradox and Bell's Theorem, ideas like "time" and "relativity" are just inaccurate human interpretations to the way the universe actually works. In quantum (space smaller than sub-atomic particles) mechanics interdimensional and faster-than-light travel are common.

    Yes, i'm a nerd.

    Ok, now I have time to answer myself. Funny you said Altamont BP cuz that's exactly where I'd be headed. I've always had some strange fixation with those damned dirty hippies. I'd start by going back to 1964 so I could maybe hitch a ride across America with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. Fast forward to London England 1975 ish, with frequent trips to NYC. Then I'd head back to this time last year and steal my dog back from my ex.

    id go back and find the first human females, and fuck them, then go a few thousand years ahead and do it again and keep doing it until around the time they leave africa
    then id be the father of all humans on the planet

    then maybe id go back and pick up a few neanderthal families and drop them off in the future after the current humans have fucked off or died, maybe chuck a few dinosaurs eggs around too just to fuck stuff up

    Only problem is, "first human females" would make a Wal-Mart cashier look desirable. Bring Viagra and a blindfold.

    Travelling back in time is possible already - it's called Canada.

    I'd want to drop in on my funeral just to see who showed up.

    Interesting stuff there MG. Checked out the Kerr Vacuum and realized I already read about it earlier. Funny that I remember all the facts and that I understand how it works but I just can't remember the names. As far as I understood Gravitational Vacuum it doesn't make backwards time travel possible. I'll have to read more on Kip Thorne's work. Thanx for inspiration.

    Btw, just remembered, that twin atomic clock experiment was the one that proved theory of relativity.

    I thought that if you travelled at the speed of light you would achive infinite mass and create a black hole big enough to suck up the universe, unless you have been isolated from them currant space/time. and my expansion on that theory is if this did happen all matter would compress and create another big bang, but the only way to isolate yourself would be to travel to another dimension where, if the same laws of physics apply would also be destroyed.
    but if you could create a "bubble" around you that reduced yur mass enough then you could avoid this problem.

    If you had near-infinite mass then you would also have near-infinite density and energy and be a stable structure, so your gravity would not surpass your schwarzchild radius (event horizon) to compress you into a singularity (black hole).

    there are also a few phenominon that cast some doubt about this equation, such as dark matter which seems to have energy but no mass, and the theoretical cosmic strings which should have near-finite mass but little or no energy.

    "that's what she said" is a natural evolution, it can't be stopped, only postponed.
