Hello World!

I finally created an account because something was bothering me. Lately I've been seeing ALOT of information regarding Time Travel and the paradoxes associated with it. What's been bothering me about this is something that I don't understand.

First off, one theory of time travel is travelling faster than light. Well from my uneducated understanding and please correct me if I'm wrong. The only reason people think they're travelling back in time is because if you move faster then light wherever you go the light has either already been there, or has not been there yet (forward in time and backward in time). Maybe I just don't understand that but that means there will never be a situation where you would run into two of you and you would never be in the same spot twice at the same moment in time ie, if you left earth in 2008 and traveled faster then light around the nearest galaxy and back you would never be in 2008 in the same month / day again.

Secondly wormholes, They say if you bend space/time you go through one and you've time traveled. Again, I don't understand how it's time travelling if the whole theory is the same light in one place hasn't reached another yet, this leaves no room for paradoxes as you would never make a "clone" of yourself for lack of better terms you could never find yourself.

Any thoughts?

Explanation: Flagged!

Personal Disclosure: Welcome! OL is sure a mod will be along soon to help out with an informative post etc. I also recommend utilizing the green chat voyuer function on the ATS tool bar to the bottom of most ATS webpages [aka the ribbon]! It will enable you to watch who and what is being posted in chat but unfortunately you wont be able to join or chat back until your post count reaches 200 posts or so.

Reply to this post with the reply function up top right of this post and that'll be another post towards your mandatory 20 posts before you can start your own threads

Peace and much love!

Sincerely OL [OmegaLogos]
