I think this is a fascinating topic...And I wanna give my own theory regarding viewing and travelling to different "times". I have no
qualifications, nor do I grasp phyisics like most, but I do have a sense of curiosity, I like to try and feed
Firstly, I wanna say that the concept of time is just the distance between two points in space. For Example; Tommorow (24 hours from now) the earth
will be in a different position (in space) than it was now. Hence time is a measurement of that distance...It is NOT however relevant to space!!!
Now, I think it is entirely and conceivably possibly to travel into the future (and time is irrevant, but speed can help). The key is distance away
from the center orbit i.e in our solar system it is the sun. Imagine observing someone from 100 meters away walking between two lamposts (street
lights), to us it would seem like a second, but to the person walking between them, it would have in fact been around 3. Now, if earth is the
"person between the posts" and lets say neptune is the observer and we could get to neptune at a relatively quick speed (say 1-2 years), and stayed
on neptune for ONE Neptune year (orbit), We would witness earth making sevral orbits compared to our one and when we return we would end up several
years in the future. However, I find it would be impossible to travel to the past in a similar way.
While I think it would be impossible to travel to the past in a simlar way, I also believe it is possible to VIEW the past in this way, as we could
send a telescope (facing the earth) to a very distant location and view 25-50 years in the past, depending of course on how long the light travels
back to us here on earth. Theories, opinions people?
