Good to see you here again, swanne. When reading the OP, it looked to me to be another multiple-universe idea, and I then checked the comments to see
if that came up, and I see that Arbitrageur had already mentioned that, and the comment of Moebius is somewhat along the same lines as well.
Arbitrageur also mentions forward travel into time. About 30 years ago I came up with the thought that as we travel through space we also travel
through time, with a realization that such a concept might lead to the Lorentz transformation equations. I was fortunate to exchange letters with the
great John Steward Bell concerning this concept. His reply back to me was that he didn't see how one could get the Lorentz transformation out of time
dilation alone. I went ahead over the next few years and published my work as "An Absolute Theory Based on Coupled Spatial and Temporal Travel”,
D.J. Larson, Physics Essays, Vol. 4, 373-383 (1991) and later my more complete work which is available online as
The Absolute Theory
My view is that one cannot go back in time, and that time is simply the universal parameter ordering events chronologically. I accept causality as an
axiom. One can of course question axioms and have fun doing so and get some good science fiction that way, but my view is that there is one single
reality and not a multiverse. Returning to an absolute time allows a retort to Einstein:
Surely, Al, God knows what time it is!
But such kidding aside, once we set relativity aside we can understand quantum mechanics without bringing in a multiverse or other nonsense, as
described in Absolute Quantum Mechanics
It was cool to dig a bit online to get you that original 1991 reference, as I noticed it has actually been cited, although the citation expanded DJ
Larson to David J Larson. Recently I found that The ABC Preon Model
has now picked up a few
citations as well. I always was somewhat surprised that my works, rather revolutionary and published in a reviewed journal, never got any notice.
Maybe that is slowly changing.
