Now, I know this is going to disappoint some of you, but I think it's worth a look. We already have time machines that offer glimpses into our past,
just as what your reading now was written in my past. While reading is not a very exciting way to visit the past I suggest television & cinema screen
are indeed time machines that allow us to peer into a specific portion of the past, albeit small.
I suggest with today's available technology we could put sensors that record via computers everything that everyone or any device that's connected
to that network records, not only could everyone record everything they themselves see, hear, eventually feel, smell, taste, but you could have static
recording devices placed everywhere in your house, yard, woods, etc. So someone in the future could visit an exact replica of our world, though they
could not manipulate our actual past it is still in a sense a time machine.
So, if we began to record every possible moment - especially significant events - we could build a sort of holodeck that would allow people to travel
back in time and the more sensors recording the more believable or real it would be.
Thus the more sensors we place & record the more places & details of the past one would be able to virtually visit.
Now, though we don't have the current technology to communicate with someone in the past & thus manipulate the past. I believe we will in the near
future be able to send bits of data into the past, therefore one could postulate that, that data could be multiplied to the point that one could send
people in the past visions of their future (our past) that would allow them to manipulate their future (our past).
Though we could not actually travel to that past we could potentially manipulate what happened & thus change time and those in the past doing that
manipulation could not travel to the future, they could change it if we've manipulated them to do so.
