Warning I have no real answers. I just thought it would be fun to speculate with you in this thread.
The reason for my question is lets say in the future if it does exist and there is time travel why is it noone has seen anyone in todays world
walking through portals or in time machines?
There can be many reasons for this (If time travel is real).
Perhaps they refuse to interact in fear of altering the future (as someone already suggested).
Perhaps when someone time travels they only appear in time-lines where time travel actually happens, effectively even jumping to new dimensions
seemingly "the same as our own" but entirely different.
Perhaps it is because we have not invented a time machine yet and time travel requires such tech on "both sides of the traveling" future and
For example... expecting a phone call from someone before a second phone is ever created would be a silly thing to wait for.
I am here at my desk and 20 years into the future i could be at work or in a hospital. Question is if the future has already existed. Then in the
future time travel should have been invented and should be in use. So if this is correct how come we dont see anything from the future happening
It is very possible that you exist in countless futures in an endless array of "possible outcomes of your own future". If this is the case, you are
no longer dealing with simple "point A to point B travel" Essentially you could be dealing with infinite "yous" in infinite "possible
Meaning, billions of "yous" can be experiencing time travel first hand, or watching its discovery happen, while the "you" you are here is unlucky
and unaware of such technologies.
Cosmic dice thrown where you can't see them.
Or could spaceships be people from the future trying to make contact but are afraid they would end up changing life in the future..
HECK YAH they can! Why not? Makes as much sense (if not more) then most the UFO garbage I hear/read.
Does the end of time already exist and the future has already taken place? Or are we building toward the future and there is no future except the here
I wonder that very often. Its good to know I'm not alone in pondering such things.
If there is no future and only the past it would explain why we havent seen any kind of time travelers or time machines.
But they could also be invisible! I highly doubt we will master time travel before we master invisibility.
Think about it...
Now think, would you equip your time travelers with invisibility?
Something to think about though is this.. It takes the suns rays 10 mins to get to earth. So the light on earth wouldnt go out for 10 mins should the
suns light stop..
So the light we have shining on us is technically from the past by 10 mins correct?
It IS from the past...but much like a bus arriving at the station. The bus came from another locality and took time to cross actual space.
This is a bit different then time travel as we are discussing it.
But in your defense, we are talking about light...and nobody fully understands light and what it does when it is moving and it surly relates to time
differently then most other moving things.
So, who really knows?
I know ive jumbled up alot of topics in this thread but im trying to figure out if time travel was real how come noone from the future is here or has
been seen to show us.
One more possibility is that time travel IS real, it WAS used to visit us...then because of that- mankind was almost destroyed leaving a handful of
time travelers to travel to meet the original time travelers just to stop them from time traveling in the first place.
Hey...you never know.
PS- I am a time traveler...I usually only go at the speed of life.
