    I personally believe that objects of mass will never be able to travel back in time. However I do think that electronic data will. for example, the recipies for cures of diseases.

    Now here is my idea, instead of building a machine that can send information back surely experts should be trying to build a machine that can recieve it, because then in the future a machine capable of sending will be built.

    In theory, as soon as the reciever is built and turned on it should start recieving data!

    Im not very good at wording my thoughts but i hope you get the gist!

    Discuss!

    You are right in a way. We already have that "machine" available. It's called the human brain. The information is freely available in the univers. We are processing it and find solutions. We sort of traveling in time, currently we call progress.
    If you read my essay on this site, I came to the same conclusion. I'm just interpreting it differently.

    What exactly do you consider time to be?

    No offense, but electronic data requires electrons, and electrons have mass. How do you prose they travel back in time?
    In control lies inordinate freedom; in freedom lies inordinate control.
