Time travel is not possible.
To travel back or forward in time, there must be a reference point to measure from. And since time is infinate(or so I believe) there can be no way to
Time travel may not be traveling through time, but around it. Moving into or onto a different plain, where time has less meaning, thus instant
"Stopping A Clock
John Bajak has invented a Flux Capacitance Time Travel Circuit, and he even provides the schematics for it on his website. And it works, he says.
It's amazing it never made the front page of the newspaper.
Excerpt: "Point transducer output toward the person or thing you want changed. That thing, such as a clock or piece of shelving, will begin
oscillating between past and future.... I noticed time stretched thinner and thinner until I noticed time seemed to stop while it was turned on. This
took place in clocks I watched on my VCR and a German-made clock given to me by my father. I noticed time seemed to decelerate after a certain period
of turn-on, then accelerate when the button was turned off, according to the changing pattern of the capacitor."
Bajak goes on to relate how his TV exploded, reassembled itself, talked to him and "threatened" him. Gee, it seems like this time travel business
can be dangerous. By his own admission, Bajak was taken to a psychiatric hospital where, I'm sure, he had a lot of time on his hands. However, if
you're interested in building your own time travel devices, you should also check out the Delta-T Antenna, the Time Camera (which presumably allows
you to take photos of the past and future, but does not explicitly claim that) and the Time Portal, which you can build in your very own
