There doing somethings with quantum particles that may one day provide instant comunication. Something about having two particles miles apart and
spining one appears to cause the other to move at the same instant. This would mean that comunication between the two particles is faster than light..
in fact, instant. It could also mean that the two particles are in fact the same particle exisiting in two places at once...
Now put a scope looking back at earth from mars and set of a Nuke on earth. so the scope on mars would see something happen.
Now it would take approximately 8 min for the light from the nuke to travel to mars. So on earth the nuke goes off, and on Mars 8 min later, the
martians see it happen. The martians then use this new particle comunication device to send a film to earth so earthlings can view their own past, the
instant it reaches mars...
For earthlings the event would still have been 8 Minuets ago, but for martians veiwing the sceene it would only be hapening now.
Take this out 100 light years and repeat then Earthlings could watch a constant movie of their past 100 years ago and more the farther you get out
To see our past, one would have to exceed the speed of light. One could speculate that the same tech used to create the particle comunication device
might also one day be used to Beam a telescope 100 light years or more away in an instant so that we could veiw events from any time in our past.
That would mean we would have to find a particle that exists here and at our destination that are mirrors of each other.
Or we can discover FTL travel.
I dont think we can see the future since it has not happend yet. Light particles from the future should not exist, so nothing to see.
my head hurts now
