Could someone create new knowledge without learning something? Philosophical minds want to know.

I believe by reason of einsteins GR that once you break a certain threshhold beyond our solar system you accelerate to the speed of light which is the speed of time. Time would stand still.

Our solar system from the perspective of space time is a giant funnel shape.
For example : looking toward the sun from dead center




One you break the threshold of space-time which is flowing around our sun you may travel at the speed of light or beyond. If you understand the concept of wind flowing around an object it's sort of like that. where time/wind is obstructed by our sun giving us a speed limit on time. This is why the speed of light is constant. Think of a funnel and that's how time flows. Possibly even following the golden rule. It creates gravity on objects as time flows around them, and reduced possibly the speed of light/time within the funnel. So if you traveled beyond our solar system you may accelerate.

As is explained in GR if person (A) took off in a space craft and traveled 10 light years to pickup some beer and person (B) stayed on earth, when person (A) returns they will have barely aged while person (B) will be an old man. This is because the clock of person (A) slows down which also means time and space speeds up relative to the observer(person A). The person in the spacecraft,(person A) could travel anyplace in the universe in an instant.


And the only reason light continues to remain constant inside the funnel is because light has no mass therefore it's not effected by time.

Your psuedoscience is not making sense besides im pretty sure (besides the fact that scientist recently said time travel is not possible) the human body could not withstand the stress and physical effects of this speed of travel anyway. imo

Even if it is not possible to go back in time, we can certainly look back in time. You know the rays from the sun take 8 minutes to reach us right? So, whenever we look at the sun to study it in telescopes for example we are actually studying how the sun looked 8 minutes ago.

Now imagine this on a grander scale. imagine that we where 1 lightyear away from earth, with a strong enough telescope to be able to study our own house. We would see ourselves coming and going, maybe water the plants, as we did one year ago. Now imagine if we where 50 light years away... we would see what happened on earth 50 years ago, able to study who killed kennedy, for example, laying that one to rest.

Next imagine if we where to start moving towards earth. Time would appear to speed up from our viewpoint, at 0.5x the speed of light, everything would appear to happen at 2x speed, and it would look very funny.

Now imagine if we where to put in the reverse. We could actually see ourselves walking backwards, speeding up we could even see the entire human history, the romans and greeks, jesus, pyramid buildings etc.

So wheather we can actually GO back in time is irrelevant, we CAN study it, in hd-res crystal sharp picture, sometime in the future.

speed will not do it,

separate time from space and you will have speed.

separate speed from space and you will have time.

separate time from speed and ya got space!


very simple. just try to do it tho! lol!!

What you need to understand is everything in the universe happens in an instant. Everything exists at the same time Even though you look through a telescope 13 billion light years away in the oustkirts of our universe, you are not going to see what is actually happening in the present.

Example:

If I were to travel to the edge of our universe and come back to earth. I would have bairly aged while everyone on earth I used to know would be dead. How can this time make sense? Because the star travelers clock slows in relation to clocks of the people on earth. Light however has no clock because it has no mass therefore when you look out into space 13 billion light years out you are going to see the past. If you traveled there in an instant the past wouldn't exist.

Maybe I'm not the best at explaining this but please try and understand. It's incredibly frustrating to feel like something so profoundly important to humanity could be passed over so easily.

In reality everything occurs in an instant. It takes 8 minutes because of time dilation.

We would see ourselves coming and going, maybe water the plants, as we did one year ago.

You might see kennedy but if you traveled there in an instant, you would not see the past, you would be back in the present. This is time dilation which is an occurrence when clocks tick at different speeds. Anything with movement has it's own clock. The universe has it's own clock, along with galaxies, solar systems, planets, and the human mind.

This is why when we sleep we slow down our clock allowing our mind to travel at the speed of light or beyond. Our dreams are our minds going on a journey to parallel universes. Mainly because our clock slows in relation to planet earths clock allowing to move faster then the speed of light.


Next imagine if we where to start moving towards earth. Time would appear to speed up from our viewpoint, at 0.5x the speed of light, everything would appear to happen at 2x speed, and it would look very funny.

This is absolutely the truth. We can never visit the past but we can observe from far away. The reprocussions of this is our entire lives are recorded.
