It has recently been suggested by scientists that information, such as audio or visual data may be able to be sent through time before it will be
possible to send physical objects. One piece of music by Mozart was suggested to be the historic first piece of information to be sent back. Now ,
this raises some very interesting questions. What if that piece of Mozart's music was sent back to a time before Mozart composed it? And what if
someone else passed if off as their music? What if it changed the development of modern music? This could be true of any art that is sent back? The
book 1984 sent back to 1750 for example. Or the Mona Lisa sent back to 500BC? What if an historical fictional novel influenced real historical events
because someone interpreted it in a certain way?
The question has also been raised concerning how these objects or information would ’arrive’ back in time as the theory goes that you can only
send information back to a time after the first time machine has been invented. But, just because the public doesn’t know it has been invented
doesn’t mean there isn’t one already in existence and for hundreds of years possibly? Some speculate the Egyptians used the pyramids for
transporting things through time and that is the basis for much theory about the use of the pyramids.
Assuming then that in theory the information or object could go back in the current timeline, how would they appear? Would they only appear at the
location of the individual who owned the time machine? (That might make that person, or organisation, quite powerful and would be a very good reason
not to go public with the time device they have in their possession. Therefore the public would assume no such device exists) They would also gain
power from having scientific/technological/historical information sent back, but that is another point. Would the objects randomly appear in space?
For example you send back the Mona Lisa and it is 'discovered' by someone in a cave. Or, and this raises questions about originality, inspiration
and creativity, would the information be transported through space and time as an idea? That people could pick up the information as waves, even
without knowing where the information came from, thinking it is their idea? Mozart is sitting around one day and just happens to be inspired to write
the piece of music sent back in time and space from the future of the music he has ‘already’ written?
Is it therefore wrong then to send back Art as it could interfere with the normal flow of creativity of the great artists such as Mozart and Leonardo
da Vinci? Or will we discover in the future that much of the ‘past’ artistic genius has been 'inspired' by us sending back art through time and
