“I wanna warn ya all already that this text might be a mind job…”
Whether it is possible to, in the future, go back or forward in time I will leave unstated, however, I sincerely hope that we never ever find a way to
go back in time.
Of course I have to admit that my heart from time to time have desired to go back in time to fix things, to visit and experience events that have no
chance to reoccur.
It is of course an intriguing thought to actually go back and correct old mistakes you regret.
I know I have a lot of things to correct. But there is also an “but”. A big BUT.
What are the side effects of going back in time then?
Well, many. In fact I believe that the second we discover a way to make time-travels everything will turn into a mess. I can’t even begin imagine
how it would be like.
I will try to explain why I believe this, and perhaps shine a light on this in a different perspective than we usually hear regarding paradox problems
in the nature of time travels.
Before I begin to explain why, I want to make another thing explained first so you’ll understand later on what I mean.
I am talking about feedback. And I mean the kind that you hear when you put your microphone in front of your speaker or just have the microphone to
close to the speaker when talking in it. What happens is that the words you speak into the microphone comes out through the speaker, most likely
This amplified sound will be picked up again by the microphone and send the amplified sounds through the amplifier again and amplify the sound even
This will continue till the sound cracks and burst into a one tone signal (feedback).
But ok, let’s get to the point.
If we develop a way of traveling through time it will be something that will stay forever and ever…
It’s not a technology that all the sudden will vanish. It will remain the center of everything for thousands of years forward.
What will the history books say in in thousand years and forward to 10 000 years?
But one thing is for certain, it will include our history. Since our history will also be the history in 5000 years.
Now let us say that something happens in our era that would more or less interest ANYONE later on in the future. Like a special New Years Eve.
Ok… time traveling might not be common in the beginning, but we know by experience how quickly things turn common. Even if Time travels would be
restricted to military only, it would eventually become so common that anyone can travel where and where they want.
Remember we are talking about a time span of ten thousands of years.
And in my opinion you can have anything restricted for eternity. Everything reaches the surface at some point. And I believe this would happen with
the technology of time travel as well. Soon EVERYONE will have access to the past. And when this happen the # really hits the fan.
Ok, let’s go back to the “Special New Years Eve”. Now when it is common to everyone, people will travel to the past just to make a shop or go to
concerts or whatever they would even go to the past just to get laid. But also, some travelers might stay in the past for quite some time, get friends
and even girl friends. Some might even start a family. Anyway, the point is that people will go back in time and have offspring’s.
What would happen if men go back in time and make women pregnant?
What if people under a time span of 10 000 years would go back in to the same “special new years eve” moment and have offspring’s, that time era
would soon find itself pretty over populated in such a degree that the society would not work properly and fall. Perhaps cause there will not be
enough food for everyone, diseases would flourish in a speed we can’t imagine.
Again, the time spam in 10 000 years, which is a long time but that wouldn’t make a difference for us.
Let’s play with number a bit shall we?
Let’s speculate that after a thousand years after the discovery of time traveling, the technology is known to the world and commonly used by
Let’s also speculate that approximately 100 people would go back in time to the same momentum everyday for 10 000 of years.
Ok, let’s start
At the year 2000 the population of Earth is measured to be around 6 Billion human lives.
we estimate to have around 9 Billion in the year of 2050. Imagine how many we are 3 or 4 thousands of years from now when we manage to grow from 200
000 people ( year 1 ) to 6 Billion people 2000 years later. But let’s go by the numbers of 2000 for now.
Let’s say that time travel would in the year of 10 000 AD be just as common as driving a car is for us today. Around 450 Million cars are active
today. We are gonna use a lesser number though.
Let us play with the thought that 100 million people would use time traveling on a daily bases.
100 000 000 x 365 = 36 500 000 000
36 500 000 000 people, that's 36.5 BILLION people folks, would go back in time each year to the same moment. Not necessarily the same place, but
still the same time. Perhaps to celebrate the New years eve of the famous year of 2000.
Let’s multiply that with 10 000.
36.5 billion x 10 000 = 365 000 000 000 000
Well, you can see the numbers.
This would mean that 365 000 000 000 000 human beings would visit the same time at once, even though they came from different time in the future they
will all find themselves at the same time in the past no matter when they left.
One word: CHAOS.
