Theory that we're on a preset time line.

This is probably going to sound stupid but I'll say it anyways.

Okay so when we see a planet 100 light years away, we're seeing it as it was 100 years ago right? What if, in theory, we had a telescope/or something that could see faster than the speed of light? We'd be able to see the future in theory. That would mean that we're some how all on a preset time line, and perhaps something "higher up" than our selves is really out there, and has everything planned out for us.

Just a theory.

The telescope just captures the light .Quite a journey too.

Doesn't just have to be a telescope, just if using something, or even if we could see with our own eyes, faster than the speed of light.

If you are looking at a planet as it was a hundred years ago you would not be looking at the future

It's impossible to increase our ability to see things "faster".

What we see when we look up at the sky are is the light from stars that have taken millions of years to reach us because of how far away they are.

The only way to see them as they are today, would be to travel there so that we may see them.

And the theory of time travel revolves around being able to go somewhere forward faster than the speed of light, and then slowing down and coming back in that same speed in order to see the past or the future.

A telescope cannot does not rely on speed, it simply magnifies the light within it's range.

The speed of light c , is a constant . ( in a vacuum) 299,792,458 m/s.

Interesting topic. I was having a conversation about this the other day. The telescope is a time machine or inter-dimensional portal if you think about it. You can bypass light and focus on an object not visible to the eye long ways away, seeing something that technically isn't there through the telescope as if you were there in person.

Imagine it this way...If you were making a trip in a car from City A to City B and that trip would take you 2 hours of driving through time and space, yet your friend took a plane and got there in 30 minutes, didn't your friend travel through time? Maybe time travel is an individual perspective.

Guys I'm just saying in THEORY *IF* we could see faster than the speed of light.

No, you're friend was simply traveling faster than you were. It has nothing to do with time traveling. It would have taken him just as long if the plane were doing the speed limit set on the roads.

Time travel is the idea that you are going to a different place in time/space than you are in now.

I think what your getting at, is the concept of time dilation .
Here`s a video of the experiment confirming Einstein's prediction.

Well... if you built some kind of wormhole-type telescope. Folding space and such and being able to tear a tiny hole, then you could see what was going on in real-time. But, then, why would you need a telescope?

The problem is that we don't rely on speed when it comes to eyesight. Speed has nothing to do with it.

We rely on the clarity of such light in order to see properly. You can't SEE faster than anybody else. No such device could be created. It would not make sense to have such a thing as it would not give you anything.

With your telescope idea, you're seeing what has already happened. Now even if you could see faster than light (?), you still can't see what hasn't already happened.

Therefore no matter how fast your telescope can see, you still can only see it after it has happened. Interesting idea though.

To move faster then time. You would have to be able to do things faster then all changes in matter in total present space time. You must be able to travel faster then changes in all matter without dying.

But we can't build something that works faster then what matter can change.

To be able to move back in time you would have to be able to take all the matter in present space time and put them one by one back into the right order they had in past space time. And you must do that faster then the matter can change. And do that without changing you self.

LoL just imagine reconstructing ww2 and ww1 with all the people faster then matter can change it self. Now that would demand some heavy duty engineering.

Never thought of it like that . good idea though.
