Time travel

59 posts in this topic

It seems to me that time travel is not possible, because time does not exist, outside of a concept. All that there was in the past, is right here right now and all that will be, is right here right now. If you could travel at the speed of light and look at the earth, it would have the same effect as a photograph, there would be no movement and the light would appear to be frozen. When we look a light from a distant galaxy, it takes many light years to get here, so it could be said that we are looking into the past, but the reality is, we are seeing the light which is right here right now.

Just wanted to start a general discussion on time travel and everyone's theories or opinions on all topics regarding this - including, but not limited to paradoxes, possibilities, application, favorite time travel movies, etc.

"Physical laws" are imagined by God. Same with "time travel". Nowhere is it written that you cannot travel through time.


To balance beauty and complexity so perfectly is a divine mystery.

We are slowly traveling into the future right now.  We can speed it up and travel into the far future with gravity or acceleration (Einstein). 

 

Looking or observing the past is not the same as traveling to the past.

To go backward  to the past, that requires infinity level of energy which is God's level.   This is something I am very interested to learn more.   

Once, I had awakening experience that time slowly moving.   Also lost time, about few hours, during my first awakening and I still don't know where that time has gone to.  It is still a mystery to me.

Existence kind of seems like a constant time travel.

Not that it's going anywhere, but that it's in constant energetic flow.

It's completely free and wild without boundaries or perimeters. Boundlessness

Always fresh and always new.

You never step into the same river twice and it's constantly rivering.

Thought about this a lot down the years as used to enjoy many time travel themed shows. A couple of my favourites were a series called 12 monkeys, there’s a film too but never seen that, and a Canadian series called continuum. Cool shows I preferred continuum as I enjoyed the storyline more. But on the real notion on time travel, I’m not convinced at all that it’s physically possible in the way we see in the movies. But I wouldn’t write it off in terms of altered states of consciousness. Not that I’ve ever even remotely experienced such a phenomena. But my mind is open to the possibility that one could potentially so radically alter their state, that maybe they could end up winding up in a different time period. Only then they’d have altered consciousness so completely they either wouldn’t even realise they’d done it themselves, or if they were aware, then because all that would exist would be that state and environment dreamed up, then they would come across as a complete madman and be thrown in the nuthouse for claiming such a thing. So my belief is time travel likely doesn’t lie within the realms of physical laws, but within states of consciousness itself. Who knows🤷🏻‍♂️

I would not discard time, it is a very useful concept! I just don’t believe it is possible to travel through a concept

was the present moment when you read this, it was the present moment when you typed it and it is still the present moment. If you think about it, you will realize that there was never a time in your life when it wasn’t the present moment. When I walk down a road, the path ahead of me is not the future, it is also in the present moment and the path behind me is not the past, it is also still in the present. Looking at where I was or where I’m going may be thought of as past or future, but the reality is, we may never escape this present moment.

From the scientific perspective, gravity slows down the flow of time. So if you manage to go near the black hole and stay there for a few minutes, when you return to Earth, a few centuries would pass in the meantime. That way you can travel to the future.

We're always time traveling lol. At the speed of time.

On a more serious note, apparently time travel in both directions is possible (in theory). I learned about it briefly from a physics professor when I was in school. I'll admit I didn't fully understand what he was talking about. 😂

The forward direction is definitely the more straightforward. (Relativity).

@Tyler Durden

That's right according to my understanding. This could also happen when you travel at very fast speeds (near light speed). 

It's moving backward in time that's much more theoretically challenging.

Time is a projection onto now/direct experience so I dont think time travel is possible...


Dont look at me! Look inside!

What about a projection about a projection ?

I definitely time traveled in one of my dream, I also killed thousands of jews as a zombie SS though.

You dont need time for that. Appearance can change in the now. If its changes very drastically you feel like you have travelled in time. ;) But what is change... good question... Will have to contemplate that.

As opposed to travelling through space? Space is also a concept. Travel is also a concept. So what?

You can have 'same dream' twice.. In reality everything is NOW, so there is nowhere to go back ^_^

If everything is present, you have to agree that there is another flow, or pointer that scanning through this block of present in a very consistent and subtle way, that is the "time" I'm talking about.  

 

If you cut through this block of present at a specific angle and location, you will have different slice of time.   

This flow of time  or the consistency of "time" through the block, is a real character of this reality that we can't ignore.

Wherever you go, there you are! Thinking about where you were or where you are going all takes place in your head. The concept of time is very useful for making plans, but an unfortunate and untimely laws of physics would put those plans into a different perspective.

Folks travel in time not frequently nowadays.
