From a physical science theoretical perspective, travel to the future is not possible because,
1) it does not yet exist,
2) according to string theory, by observing the future, you would change it to the observable string and not necessarily the expected string of
contiguous outcome. Disjointed time, where random and instantaneous paradigms of massive change and upheaval are common occurrence. Like let's say,
you go to bed as a Chef in Paris and wake up as a plumber in No-Where, Idaho. Bonjour Mssr. , ou a le biddet? Sacre Blu. Or you go go to church and
its a bank. You go out for food and become food.
3) Since these tectonic shifts in spatial and temporal location do not occur in the present, they do not occur in our future, nor in our past, so
logically, its copper plated conclusion that since there are no time travelers, there never was, and could never be. Otherwise they would already be
here. I hope you understand the elemental logic of that fascinating argument.
But all is not lost. Travel behind the present is not in contra to any physical laws, that are specific to our current physical construct. I do think
that visiting the past is within the realm of possibility, but highly improbable. By the time man throws off the tribal blinders the Sun will have
dwarfed and the Earth will again be a dark chunk of rock floating in the periphery of the cosmos, so if there is a entity living on that rock on the
outer fringes of the universe somewhere in the dark future of the planet, we call Earth, he should fire up his time machine and put a big Yellow
Sticky Note on our collective fridge.
Inter-dimensional travel, l where you you could slide to a existence previously invisible to you and then warp time before returning to a existence
known to you could be a way to visit the ancient past. Just remember that time does not exist. Clocks are mechanical devices that mimic the rotational
characteristics of the earth and sun. Time is not a dimension. Its a device that busy folks use to keep every thing from happening all at a once.
Peace Love Out.
