I don't really understand time travel, so my question may be totally off and there's probably already a thread addressing my question.

If one travels to the future or past how do we know that we don't materialize into a tree, a building or anything that occupies that space? Should we start building designated "empty" areas, so time travelers can safely "land"?

I think john titor(hoax?)touched on this something to do with alignment but more so you dont end up in space or the middle of the earth i think.

Since nobody actually knows anything about how one would "reenter" normal time I don't feel too crazy dishing out a little speculation on the matter. Theoretically, if you were in a time machine which I envision as having an instrument panel and a seat, the machine could vanish from current space-time causing a collapse of the void where it once was and then push everything else away as it reentered. This would solve the minuscule problem of a tree being in the way, but really not help anything but suffocation if you're buried in the core of a planet. Alternatively, a time machine could be a device that takes up 3 square miles and can only send a naked human with no way of getting back home and a mission to save Sarah Conner.

and then push everything else away as it reentered.

Wouldn't Newton's third law still apply, and crush the poor timetraveller flat?
