Ok i'm not sure this should be in this forum, but here goes.

What if our brains can time travel, but it isn't accurate enough to stay in the same worldline, but is accurate enough to skip worldlines if you think of that worldline.

Possible? You can think into the future, and past, which would also be different worldlines.

There's acutally quite a bit of research about this... but the "time travel" means basically "daydreaming about the future" or "daydreaming about the past."

It's a popular research topic, though, and I've seen a lot of papers on it. It might be one of the things that distinguishes us from the animals.

Byrd is right.....'Time Travel' in the brain could be relating to the instantaneous nature of memory....think about it.....you are able to construct a fairly intricate representation of thoughts thyrough your conversation that include references that may have occured in very different parts of your life......that an experience may have occured 10 years apart is incongruent with memory in that they can both be recalled in the same breath........key term....*association*

So what about Dreams I have that occur a few days, months, or years after I have had them, and I remember it right when that event happens.

My initial guess is that a recent experience is similar to the previous one and the dream is your mind making that association.....
