# Thread: Theory of time traveling

1. Hello,

I have watched some shows on National Geographic and I thought of time traveling, I know you probably think, this theory is nonsense, but it is pretty logic.

I made a video about it where I explain everything, the theory is still being made, because I have to do more research on some stuff.

My English isn't that good, because it isn't my native language, so if you can't understand something, feel free to ask.

The theory in short is that there are unlimited universes and every universe is another option, if we can find a way to travel from one universe to another universe, then this theory is possible.

3. Sorry I didn't get past the 4 minute mark but it might have been sooner.

Here's my take on time travel. If everyone who ever travels through time decides to go back to one specific historical event then there should be concern over how many can attend. For example if millions of time travellers decide to visit the Titanic prior to its striking of the iceberg then the ship will sink under the weight of humanity before it gets a chance. It doesn't matter when a time traveller decides to go because if they all choose the same destination then they'll all meet there at the same moment. I don't remember reading about millions attending Christ's crucifixion. Too many time travellers spoil the broth.

4. T3 (Time Travel Theory)

Axiom 1: Time travel to the future at the rate of 1 hour per hour is consistent with the general notion of 'time'.
Axiom 2: Time travel to the further future (as in the 'twin paradox') is consistent with Einstein's Relativity theories.
Axiom 3: Time travel to the past is logically possible.
Axiom 4: Time travel to the past is consistent with the known laws of physics.
Axiom 5: You cannot 'change' the past.
Axiom 6: You may be able to 'influence' the past.
Axiom 7: You can only influence the past if it does not allow the 'bilking paradox'.

Notes:
1. The difference between 'changing' the past and 'influencing' the past can be illustrated with the 'Dr. Who paradox'.
2. There is an interpretation of quantum mechanics, called the 'Transactional approach' which involves influences on the
present from the future.

Hypothesis 1: Time travel to the further future is technically difficult (as of the year 2011).
Hypothesis 2: Time travel to the past is mentally difficult (it affects the mind in strange ways).
It should be called 'Time ravelling'.

Thus you're not going to get hordes of 'time ravellers' visiting historic events, let alone your back yard.
You're not going to witness 'Tom Baker style look-alikes', they're going to be discreet.

How so?

Couldn't agree more. What if we could send a device that could observe and transmit pictures and sound to the present?

6. Just thinking about time travel can be mind-bending.

Knowledge, belief and memory are all time dependent. Travelling back in time could upset that 'little' apple-cart.

Belief is temporally prior to knowledge.

Travelling forward in time you can come to know things that once you only believed (such as Einstein's theories of relativity, maybe!).
You can come to abandon other beliefs which have been proved wrong or of no use.

I'm guessing that such neural pathways in the brain, once created can't be destroyed, but could become unused, derelict.

Travelling back in time: Can you come to 'unknow' something?

Assuming a very simple mind-brain connection, that could 'ravel' the mind.

That would make a good signature.

We're speaking hypothetically here but I figure that if you could time travel then you take your timeline with you.

Let's say you do go back in time. Your body is composed of matter that all of a sudden is existing in two places at once. Possible?

Or should we say 'existing in two times at the same place'?. (like in 'The Time Machine' by H.G.Wells).
No. I think the correct phrase should be 'existing in two distinct spacetime locations' - that I believe is possible.

9. Well.....I guess the million dollar question is: where are they?
