Time travel,is it real and how does it work

Updated on January 11, 2010


Time is a function of matter.For time to exist,physical reality must necessarily exist.If there were no physical reality ,there would be way to measure the changes of physical reality. It's as simple as that

A ruler measures distance in straight lines

A compass measures distance in circles or parts of circles

A protractor measures angles

Distance and speed can be used to measure the "TIME" it takes for an object to travel from point A to point B.

There is more than one way to measure distance though and the time it takes to travel that distance can vary depending on how many pathways there are to get to the destination in question.

A straight line being the shortest distance between two points.

Of,course the more curves or turns you have to make increases the time it takes to travel the same relative distance in terms of a straight line ,but a longer distance in the sense that there are more turns,or curves to reach the same destination.

TIME is intimately involved in both examples,but in the first example where the shortest distance between two points is a straight line the TIME involved is shorter.This clearly illustrates the element of TIME in connection with physical reality.

If,TIME is measured the same everywhere.The further the distance measured ,the longer the TIME it takes to travel,and subsequently it takes more energy to travel a longer distance.

ENERGY,TIME and PHYSICAL REALITY are all intimately connected.

In Einsteins famous equation E=MC 2

ENERGY = MASS xTHE SPEED OF LIGHT x the speed of light

So,if we exchange TIME for ENERGY in the equation

TIME = MASS x THE SPEED OF LIGHT x the speed of light

So TIME is equal to MASS in the form of ENERGY,the greater the mass the greater the energy and the greater the time and visa versa,the greater the time the greater the mass or energy.

Thus ENERGY or MASS or in even simpler terms time is energy and energy is time.

This could be why in our religious beliefs God has no beginning and no ending.Because ENERGY CANNOT BE CREATED OR DESTROYED ,it just changes form.................

If,there is no (time)- physical reality,there can be no instrument to measure time,since time cannot exist outside of physical reality.

A camera of any kind or a movie camera in particular are like time machines.

They record events in time as they happen.

They may not be time machines in the sense of physically traveling to a specific point in the past or future,but there is no denying that machines can be used to record events in time.Some say only in the past,and others seem to think we could build,or have built a camera that can see into the future.

It is interesting to note that Nikola Tesla was quoted as saying that by producing a "wall of light" (no doubt with electromagnetic energy) space and time could be manipulated

If, you are still having a problem trying to figure out why time and physical reality are one and the same ? Open your eyes,listen closely to the video,IT'S ABOUT TIME !

Without further a due I give you "BILLY MEIER'S video PHOTO.REVIEW! It,takes a little time and expands upon a lot of time.

Only you can decide what you think is real based on your personal experiances.

      Good research on time,

      I stopped myelf from thinking such thoghts in my mind becoz of the negative effects that i've seen in y life whiledoing such researches.

      Really very great hub, I agree with most of the points youo've written here.

      Hiya, now this is my kind of thing! I love anything to do with Quantum Physics and time travel. Everytime we learn something new about space time, something else pops up out of the box. cheers Nell

      Thanks Don for the oomplement,the answer is I'm not a scientist at least technically speaking-(PUN INTENDED)

      I do enjoy learning when it's not on someone elses schedule.

      I understand the need for formal schooling,but I find for me personally It,seems strange how after so many years after I left school that I can recall what we learned and somehow understand it better as "time" goes by.Must be all that "energy" that went into trying to understand what I learned over "time".

      Remember the saying "time" heals all wounds?

      I have a new one -

      "Time" brings knowledge,it's about "TIME"


      I agree time only exists in physical reality,if that is what you meant by "earth"

      Someone, I am not a big believer in time travel, but we are fortunate to have media today that allows us to at least travel back about 100-150 years. It will only get better and the idea of time travel into the future can only exist in ones mind on our earth. There is also the possibility of a parallel uniivers with our earth in a more advanced stage.

      Who knows, but it is fun to imagine what might be...

      Well, Someonewhoknows, I think you have been hiding your true scientific self. This was a marvelous Hub and I learned a lot. I took physics and all kinds of math in high school and college, for a while thinking I was going to become an engineer. My classes taught me that Time = Distance/speed

      But you have taught me a new formula - namely, that

      Time=Mass X Speed of Light squared.

      Also, that TIME is ENERGY or MASS or in even simpler terms time is energy and energy is time.

      I started writing a time-travel mystery story (or novel if it gets that far) and I'll get back to it after I publish my Rip Rhymer novels (2 or 3). You should check it out. I just published Chapter 8 in a series or novel called Dragon Hunter. Dragon Hunter: Chapter 8 on Hub Pages.

      I had no idea you were a scientist, or at least had studied Einstein's law of relativity and about time. You are quite an amazing person and I look up to you for that. Way to go, someonewhoknows, this was really an outstanding Hub. Don White
