Excellent, i just finished Paul Davies wonderfully slim, concise book
"How to Build a Time Machine" and you cobbled together a great synopsis.
The godel cylinders segway nicely into the tipler cylinders and einstein rosen wormholes. Not to mention Titor's (oh no i mentioned him) description
of the 2036 GE time machine design. Sorry, had to put that in.
Anyways, I have maintained 2 things about time travel that seem logical:
1 .If science/ society progresses normally (a big if nowadays), then logically
someone will, at some future time, develop a working time distortion
machine. So, what do you do with it? Turn it on!
Therefore, we have already been visited if this is the case....(already know
about theory that you can't go back before the time the machine was
invented. Multiple worldlines [graham-everett-wheeler] ob viates that)
2. UFO's / any ET ship will very very likely (according to M Kaku and many
others) employ a time distortion unit as 'propulsion' ; you can't realistically
get from point A->B in our galaxy, or even star-star within a reasonable
time period without using a timefolding cartesian point jumping technique.
The distances are too vast. It also explains a LOT about currently observed
Starred. Too bad the LHC will take so long to ramp up, i was expecting
a higgs boson/ graviphoton to appear by now....
