    Could it be possible?
    what do you think?

        Yes.. that is true, too. 

        Yet, actually does time even exist?  What is time?  Is it not just a concept in our minds?

          One convincing argument about time is that it is a measurement of change.  If there is no change, there is no time.

          That works pretty well for me.

      If you could board a ship that could travel near light speeds, leave the earth traveling for a year, turn around and head back, many years would have passed on the earth while only two years would have passed for you.

      This could be considered a form of time travel. smile

        Interesting and true. Also if we were able to analyze the light from distant stars to the point that we could see what is happening we would be looking millions of years into the past.

      I would go with a definitely NOT for time travel.
      I think that it is a fantastic but unrealistic subject.
      I am disappointed that in four weeks there wasn't much interest in the subject.

      The humans, are God's Created "Time Machines" ... Traversing, The Ordained Duration of Life !

      Therefore ... What Dimension of Time ...  could a Travelling Time Machine Traverse ... while Traversing the Reality ... Life ... ?

      It is therefore, pure nonsense, to Theorize about Humans, Travelling to the Past or the Future ...

      The Truth of Reality, is the Present, relate able to all the Past's Presents ... while Hoping, for a certain Present of the Future.

      The recent data from the Collider could affect this conversation.  If the data is correct, there could be a flaw with Eintein's Theory of Relativity, which in turn could change everything we've thought previously about time travel; in either direction.  So frickin' exciting...

    There are two ways: You could have Tardis, which not only travels in space and time, but is bigger on the inside than the outside. How could you possibly go wrong.

    Or, you could make a booking at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, or the Big Bang Burger Bar. Both of these, though, are for the very rich, or the very foolish. Or both. wink

        I've got no idea Shades, but if it's a hearing aid, who is she listening to? There's probably a very mundane explanation or it could even be an elaborate hoax, it could be James T. Kirk in disguise and he's calling Scotty to beam him up. Who knows.

    Yes. I think it's possible. Years ago I read about inventions and technological developments in the 40s of last century. It treated in a special rotating magnetic fields. Well-known scientists were involved. Actually was looking for the opposing force of gravity. They said they had found them. And also in the experiments, a space-time tunnel had been opened. Time travel would have been possible with it and had been held. Mainly people have been sent in the time it had no relatives. However, time travel is only conceivable with the model of a multiple universe. It is said that time exists only in our imagination. And all things are at the same time. This also means that past, present and future happen simultaneously. The most spectacular journey occurred when an attempt was made using a rotating magnetic field of a warship to become invisible. This experiment has even been filmed and is known as the "Philadelphia Experiment".

    One of my favorite films is " Somewhere in Time " with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve...Having said that, I believe  absolute time travel is not possible, either into the past or future.
    Relative time travel to the future is possible. Einstein's Relativity theory, which perceives time slowing down as we approach the speed of light, is relative only to the observer...the subject itself is not aware of any change...Further, the faster we travel the more our universe contracts...... The Law of the Conservation of Matter and Energy do not allow it. Matter is never lost, only changed...
    To travel to the past or future would be sending that particular matter and energy to another place where it
    already exists. The same atoms cannot occupy the same space at the same time.
    To play devil's advocate to my own argument, what about alternate or multi-dimensional universes..?

      It's somewhat silly to say things about science are laws or facts, because a few short centuries ago it was fact that Earth was the center of the universe. Granted time travel would be insanely difficult if we could ever physically figure a method to it. I think you have to keep in mind that we are always looking into the past as you said, light takes time to travel.
           The idea of alternate or Multi-verses really isn't that far fetched, after all not long ago Black holes were considered sci-fi, and now we know they're every where. Even the idea of a black hole, I think, makes anything possible. A tear in the space-time continuum. Physically a hole must have two point, enter and exit, even if the exit is plugged there must be something outside this. I wrote a hub about it, black holes and white holes. But, I digress.
           Sorry for the novel, but I think time travel is possible, we are currently seeing lights from millions of years ago, and yes I know it's some what of a difference, but not that much!

    Possible only in the movies.  Let's recognize that time on this planet is done solely by revolving around the sun and the tilting of the Earth's axels beyond that nothing really changes in the universe- it doesn't wink out and back in as someone once said their are no sunrises and sunsets in space.

    Even though I like the ideal of time travel there are too many things to think about if it were possible like if you went back to meet yourself what would happened to you since you've basically changed your own history not to mention the history others like at 11:00 am you stopped a kid from getting hit by a car but since you're talking to yourself that event never took place.

      If we travel backward in time, before time travel existed or the machine to bring us back was created, will the time travel machine even exist to take us back there? If we travel backwards when we were younger and didn't understand time travel, would we have any memory of traveling backwards in time?

      If a bolt of lighting hits the delorian at 88 MPH and we have a flex capacitor, and we see ourselves in that date, will we have created another life form?

      If the universe is shaped like an hourglass, only the outside wraps around and sucks back into the blackhole and disperses the matter back into expansion, could it be our universe isn't even expanding?

      If everything we understand about the universe is only our internal interpritation of reality, can we be so certain that everything outside of ourselves is really just our imagination and we are reality itself? What if we are one consciousness that has already occurred billions of times before, and the interactions with "other people" are just interactions with our other lifetimes? And every conversation we had, we already had from the other person's perspective?

      What if when we dream we travel into understanding of realities caused by time travel that created paradoxes so they seem so real, yet they never really could exist?

      Time travel is definitely possible, Einstein not only proved it mathematically, but it was independently tested and proven.

      In order to travel to the future, all you have to do is move really really really fast.

      Einstein came across the idea when he was contemplating why no one has ever seen a beam of light in a stand-still traveling exactly the same speed as them...

      ...then he looked up and saw a giant clock.

      It suddenly dawned on him that he had been assuming that the rate of time was unchangeable! He realized that the up-until-then untouchable idea of constant time HAD to be incorrect!


      Anyway, traveling to the future is possible.

      They have yet to prove the reverse.

      However, Hawking argues "if you can travel back in time... where are all the tourists?", and thus demands it is impossible.

      But I would like to counter with "what if we all got killed before we proved it possible? Or we realized the atrocious diseases that would wipe out millions of people if diseases from the future were brought back to the past?" etc.

        The tourists are here. Though the majority of them tend to cluster around the historical events.

        If/when a bunch of them do show up here and don't even bother to hide the fact of their existence, we will know something big is about to happen. I know this to be true because one of them is sitting here next to me as I type this.

      Time travel to the future is definitely possible - any fast spaceship or suspended animation will do the job.  Our own astronauts do it all the time, albeit only seconds at a time.

      Time travel to the post, however is another story.  Even if possible to design and build HG Wells machine it will never happen.  If someone does do just that one day some whacko from the future will come back and kill him before he does it.  No matter how many times it happens, someone somewhen won't like it and will take steps to stop it.  Humans are such wonderful creatures!
