My first response to this is "take me with you."
Second to this proof would be someone I consider very credible to attest to their own experiences. If my mom, or our president vehemently asserted
that time travel was real - that she / he had time traveled, then I would have to consider that valid enough proof.
A reasonable person would have to give weight to these testimonies (taking relative mental and psychological health into consideration).
There was that guy who said he visited himself in the future
, and even got video from this
supposed encounter on his cell phone.
If real, that video would constitute pretty persuasive evidence in favor of time travel. What's odd about his experience, however, is that no
technology was known to have effected his time travel; but, instead, some sort of natural vortex. This begs the question, is this possible anywhere?
Could it happen again? To a greater number of people?
Guess we'll find out...
I was thinking about the question. To me, what does proof of time travel bring to a person? So what if we were given proof enough to convince us that
it was real? What then? So you know it's real, but life goes on as usual...
This could be applied to any profound discovery, or experience.
Much like the astronauts, who've even experienced something (walking on the moon) most of their fellow human beings have never experienced, they must
return to Earth and live out their days.
Many astronauts, it's been said, have resorted to drinking, or have fallen into a depression. Imagine how our existence down here pales compared to
something that profound.
So what are we asking for when we ask for proof of time travel? What are we seeking when we chase ufos, time travel, extraterrestrials, the
paranormal, or the like?
Ultimately, we want the same thing - we want freedom. We want freedom to experience something beyond the routine. The routine places us in situations
where we are bored, exposed to dangerous, or injurious (physical, mental, or financial) circumstances, and / or keeps us from exercising and
experiencing what we feel is thwarted, oppressed and locked up inside.
To me, proof of time travel - without an accompanying / resultant profound change to our existing reality is just another topic of conversation; like
politics, or entertainment.
Thus far, we have seen many profound truths exposed; an overwhelming amount of persuasive evidence - facts - that, for example, we are not alone in
But what has all of this evidence, these truths brought us? Have they brought us one step closer to freedom? Have these past decades brought us one
step away from the misery that has plagued this planet?
Superficially, possibly; but deep down, the situation remains as it has for countless millennia.
It is for this reason that facts (truth?) no longer carry the significance they once had - outside of the value inherent in being an accurate
representation of reality.
These facts / truths don't have the force necessary to alter reality; only reflect it.
I am interested in only what can actually alter the reality we experience every day - for the better.
Heretofore, no such solution, or effecting power has existed in the form of a fact or a truth, but in forces that are beyond our control, influence,
Until our reality changes, which I actually believe will be soon (no thanks to any one being(s)), all of these discussions will be "about" reality,
but not to have any real effect upon it.
Of course, if a time traveler felt like taking me for a trip, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt...
