We do send things through time, all the time, already. I guess you could say it's a 1:1 time, aka real time. But, I know you mean, like back in
time, or forward in time.
I think, the problem with the future is that there are so many futures. To send a binary message, for example, to the future, it would take energy to
pop it into all the futures, for this time jumping to occur, to guarantee that you would receive the message in your future, to prove the time travel
exists. This is assuming a straight-line time model to begin with.
Why would the future bother to notice a message from the past? An echo? Why would the future want to read a message from the dead? As for a message
to the past, they don't have the technology to interpret the data, and even if they did, they could call it a fake.
Writing a message to my past, so that my past self will read it. Sort of spoils the adventure.
