I personally believe that Time Travel (of sorts) would be possible within your own mind - so to speak - to communicate with your younger self in the
past. Many times in my life I have had what most people call deja vu - where not only do I feel like I just did something or something happened that
has happened before... but I can tell what is going to happen next... I have made a habit of mentioning out loud when this happens that I think this
and this is about to happen so that people around me can at least hear that I spoke about it before...
Some examples - Here in the town I live in - my wife and I were shopping for china patterns in one of the shops...
I remember mentioning to my wife a strange comment after I witnessed an employee pushing out a cart of dishes on the showroom floor. I commented to
her - we both remembered this later on as well... I said " I don't know why she is putting out the dishes when this place is going to be burned down
to the ground soon"
True story... not long after we were married - (yes we bought the dishes there too) walking into work - sure enough the place was in flames... I
always suspected arson but they didn't find anything strange. (and no i didn't sleep walk and do it)
Another time my wife and I were going to the cinema and she wanted to see the Denzel Washington movie - Man on fire.
I laughed and said "I don't want to see that again - and I know you don't like that movie."
She looked at me strange and pointed out the fact that it just came to cinema and it was the opening day for the movie. I was genuinely confused
because I remembered the movie - I even described it to her... I said I did remember liking it but I know she didn't because of the violence and the
main character basically dying at the end of the movie.
We watched it anyway - it was exactly how I remembered it and she hated it because of the violence... just like I remembered.
Anyway - deja vu aside - this concept of time travel or previous knowledge of present events leads me to believe that its limits may rest within the
confines of ones own lifetime.
In a theoretical discussion I had with someone one day I mentioned the concept of your lifetime being as it were a mark in chalk drawn on a sidewalk.
You only have so much chalk to make your mark with then your just chalk dust... your influence fades unless you manage to impact others around you...
other chalk lines.
Anyway--- the point being that theoretically you physically have occupied time and space for those years of your chalk line and you would be limited
as it were like a runner on a field to stay in your track lines... but in theory you should have resources available to you in time and space through
your singular travel... to repeat a portion of your course or revisit it. The limiting factor of this theory is that you cannot occupy someone else's
life and travel back further - and more to the point your time travel device would be your own body.
Who really wants to go back 35 years to see the past only to find themselves drooling on a bib staring at people wearing fashions from the 70's.
The second Time Travel scenario I have thought about is that Time is a substance... its fluid and its containable adjustable and as real an element as
everything we know to be a substance - but in a state other than one we are used to dealing with.
I conjecture that if in-fact this is the case then to travel through it or to alter at what point in time's flow you appear you would have to do
several things... Find out what alters its flow... gravity, magnetism, vibration etc...
Create a bubble of no time... that is... a point in space where a state of no time contamination has occurred - in my theory I call this Null-Space.
Null-Space would in fact be the start of a time travel vehicle mechanism and the container for you the traveler.
Before you enter such a space personally you would need the ability to recreate time flow inside that space in an emergency or risk being forever
stuck in that moment of no-time.
Anyway - this null-space needs to be in theory able to be layered upon to manipulate its own position in time through - I guess what we would call
transparency or permeability to the substance of time itself.
To be honest building such a machine would be difficult at best because any level of success runs the risk of the device slipping into the vary mode
of traveling you are trying to devise...
Anyway that is where null-space should come in... to you the outside observer anything you place inside it would be outside the contact of your
current flow of time and thus allowing you to manipulate the items or layers of the mechanics of the device.
So in theory your layers of time permeable material and layers of null-space or time free layers would allow you to create a submarine as it were -
the concept being that shielded lining would allow you to manipulate the flow of time in, around, and through the vehicle to varying degrees of
Imagine a submarine that is pressurized from the depths of the sea. Its entire internal structure is designed to travel through the water -
unrestricted to a point to manipulate the flow and speed it travels in... by using the substance of water itself to maneuver.
So now imagine that water is not water but time... Your device would in-fact need to be a sub within a sub...
We are creatures well used to being in this substance of time... and just like the wrong air or water pressure being present - our mind and our bodies
would struggle in any other environment other than the one we are used to being in...
So... We would have to pressurize or contain the flow and regulate the movement of our NORMAL stream of time so we can be free to push buttons and
examine the outside world and so forth.
Outside of that chamber - I would presume a layer of null-space would be needed because we want to isolate ourselves from the flow of the time
traveling - then a layer of manipulatable time in which we use vibration, flow, current, frequency, pressure, spin, and other variables to try to
alter our internal machines course and position in space time.
Furthermore... the old joke applies... when your done traveling in time... will the earth be beneath you?
Your device may need some space worthiness to even get to earth.
So in brief summary of what this garbled mess mentions so far is that we would need to both contain our current living environment of air, food,
water, time flow, in the inner device. The outer device being the one that does the work... and using it to manipulate time around you while you sit
comfortably used to your flow of one second passing after the next.
This does leave a few big issues that would have to be solved with trial and error (I hope without killing yourself)
Finding yourself in deep space because the Spiral Arm of the Galaxy moved away from you.
Finding yourself in the path of the moon, comet or sun etc... finding yourself buried in the earth.
You engage the device and watch as the device works perfectly... leaving you without an outer device because it is consumed somehow in the effort of
traveling (age - or non-existance due to it being uncreated)
Or worse... a leak happens in time shielding and you freeze forever or age or regress.
I suppose now thinking like this... if the first major hurdle is possible to make a point in Null-Space. That the next likely conclusion would be that
if you could enter null-space physically but have a device designed to pull you out of null space at a predetermined interval you could easily go
forward in time personally but going backwards would be difficult in this way.
To go backwards in time... you would have to reverse the flow and frequency of time around you without it affecting your device. So, thats why the
time submarine idea came in.
Time as a substance.
Well, armchair science is a great thing. So no fundamental hangups with full knowledge and book learning to get in the way - all that makes the above
run-on thought process possible...
Time has been determined by science to be several things...
Time is - not universal in its flow and influence - the atomic clock tests at least hints at this and a study by NASA as well at some point (i think
it was nasa) indicated waves of variations in time pattern and influence on atomic clocks.
Time is - needed to observe change - or in our brain - the observation of change of things around us.
Time is - observationally - perceptively - fleeting in tasks that we enjoy - increasingly slow in tasks that we hate. (don't think this is usable
As beings in time we would not be able to operate outside of time itself without danger to ourselves seeing how we need each moment to - breath, send
blood around our body, produce energy, let alone think and move.
Inside a so-called pocket of our own time - we would in theory be able to go about our normal observations while an outer device does the moving
though time for us - allowing us to be unaffected by the travel but able to observe the results of the traveling.
- To my knowledge the above ramblings are original and all mine... if they are complete nonsense please feel free to ignore it all... if it makes
sense at all and your part of a secret Gov organization working on such things... you know my number and I take cash or work on contract.
