You move your body through the temporal dimension. Forward and backwards and all directions.

You can only move forward in time. How can you move backwards?

You're imagining that. You can imagine something else.

This is not a fruitful conversation, because you're looking for constraints, and I don't have any :P 


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

What we call “now” is the unchanging reference point, to which all time is referred. All that came before now, we call the past and all that comes after now, we call the future, but “now” itself, never moves. Since it is now, everywhere in the universe, it is not physically possible to travel to a point that isn’t now, like to the past or future. Only in imagination, may we make such a journey

Because we are talking about two different contexts. 

I mean the waking state not the dream state.

Well they are the same thing, except you imagine there is a difference, thus there is one xD

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. 😂

@BenG
He probably didn’t understand what he was talking about either😂

No they are not the same thing. I think this should be obvious enough to point out.

Dreaming. Awake. Neither. Both. And any other combination.

Space and time, distance and travel, are all in the mind. You're somehow proposing that time is "more" conceptual than space. It's not. It's simply a different abstraction.

lol, maybe. That would be a little sad.

What I've learned from scientists is that great technical understanding doesn't necessarily lead to deeper metaphysical understanding. It's totally possible to spend a lifetime immersed in theory and abstraction and get no closer to the core of reality. If I'm able to avoid doing that, I'll be happy.
