Time Travel

Post by brian c » Fri Feb 11, 2005 10:10 pm

I've just been watching the time machine on TV, so given the premis that time travel is possible do you think it's desirable :!:

desirable yes because I want to see the planet in a hundred million years time and find a place when humans have destroyed themselves and live with a small select few (possibly going back in time to retrieve some) in my new kingdom.

Maybes I could go back and stop myself from putting a cigarette out on my tongue aswell.

But if you go forward in time you will upset the equilibrium because you wont exist in the future so you will meddle with something that hasn't happened----likewise if you go back in time you will upset the past because it has already happened and if you did anything there is a chance you could disappear before you've even arrived in the present :!:

I think :idea:

P.S. The hot end is the bit that glows.

you didnt say anything about if it was possible.

Look, if I buit a time machine that worked, then obviously it isnt goin to disrupt any equilibrium. If it did, then we wouldnt be here in the first place to invent a time machine.

Thats a fundamental problem I see with all of these star trek star wars star bars sushi things.

TIme travel is impossibl;e theres no such thing as time it is nothing it doesnt exist only as an idea in ur head which it cant possibly comprehend as a physical or linear or metaphysical or infinite thing it just isnt there so stop it all now.

Look----we can move up, down, left, right, back and forward these are the first three dimensions-------- when we are doing that we are moving in the fourth dimension---- TIME so time therefore exists because if it didn't exist you wouldn't miss your train, bus, dinner, pub opening etc. :!:

HAHAHA no but you see in the 1st 2nd 3rd dimensions we can move back forth up down left right
we do not move through time it is stationary we only have the infinitely undivisible moment we live in we cant create the next moment or the last one ever again.
it is NOT the fourth dimension, that is just what that gadji says on the time machine.

It isnt a dimension that has any physical properties other than the fact that we exist in it but that doesnt mean we can travel through it what AM i talking about.

Come back to me when im tired i can explain things better then.

At least we can agree on one thing , Django Reinhardt's an ace musician but of course you will be havin a barf and chillin in the space time continuem which you maintain does not exist so therefore your barf does not exist so you will look very silly sitting on the floor with no clothes on :!: :o

i said no because
firstly: if you altered the past you could really cause some problems
2* time machine was creepy especially the origonal
3* if you went forwards in time you might d*e or like it so much you want to stay or get stuck and then the present (or the past depending on where ou are) would be skrewed
3* if you did not like what was in the future you would try and change the future which would screw up fate and destiny and s**t
4* thats the problem with humans they cant just be happy with what is
ever wondered how you get a hole inside a pice of wood when there is no way to get into it to make the hole without putting a hole through the outside of the wood

Correct focus---------you can't b****r about with time as you will upset the space, time continuem and cause all sorts of problems and the fact that we are all going to d*e is irrelavent-----but there are certain people who cannot see whats right in front of them. :!: :roll: :roll:

apparently, if u went into space and whizzed about at the speed of light (yes its impossible), there is a possibility you would come back younger than your grandchildren. i dont know who came up with the theory, but my mum said it so it must be true.

There is also the theory that if you travel far enough through space in a straight line you will end up back were you started :idea: -----------a sort of astronomical disappearing up your own b**kside. :shock:

well... if you walk round the world in a straight line i guess you would, but it wouldnt be a straight line would it... it'd be a big round one.

and ud drown.

im not sure if i believe either of the two theories above, but space is f*ckin mint like innit. and they reckon they know more about space than they do about the depths of our oceans. bull.

time travel aint possible because if u go into the past to alter the timeline future events wudnt happen,and therefore u wudnt b in the future to make the timemachine to go back into the past and change the event,and so on

Everyone is travelling in time, we are all going forward a second at a time.

Someone said earlier that it doesn't exist. Thats quite true. We can only measure it by how far something has moved or changed.

For instance. Our cells renew themselves and to do this they must split.
Old cells are discarded and new ones formed.

We are designed so that the more times we renew our cells they become less and less elastic. So things start to sag and our skin gets wrinkly.

Also mistakes start to occur and thats the start of some Cancers.
I always value Pilots wit and input
