I may be mistaken, but I think you guys may need to reread that article. They are talking about bending light around an object for 40 picoseconds (making it invisible) not stopping time.


"Masking an object entails bending light around that object. If the light doesn’t actually hit an object, then that object won’t be visible to the human eye. Where events are concerned, concealment relies on changing the speed of light. Light that’s emitted from actions, as they happen, is what allows us to see those actions happen. Usually, that light comes in a constant flow. What Cornell researchers did, in simple terms, is tweak that ongoing flow of light — just for a mere iota of time — so that an event could transpire without being observable."

That's what they're doing, but the effect is that the time duration for which the light is "bent" becomes, essentially, invisible, effectively cloaking any event that may have occurred in that time.

Help me out here, wasn't there a post about this "cloaking" ability before? My search is turning up nada, but I remember reading it somewhere...

On a side note, hey remember the whole City illusion thing in Asia??

There was. The link I posted at the bottom of the last page actually mentions it. That was more of a statement of "this should be possible," whereas it has now actually been demonstrated, albeit for an extremely brief period of time.

Sounds like a book I read not surprised in the least bit.

Any News report I've seen on TV about it, mentioned Wired as the source. So, I rest my case.


How about Nature Magazine to sate those burning questions then.

Demonstration of temporal cloaking




Recent research has uncovered a remarkable ability to manipulate and control electromagnetic fields to produce effects such as perfect imaging and spatial cloaking1, 2. To achieve spatial cloaking, the index of refraction is manipulated to flow light from a probe around an object in such a way that a ‘hole’ in space is created, and the object remains hidden3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. Alternatively, it may be desirable to cloak the occurrence of an event over a finite time period, and the idea of temporal cloaking has been proposed in which the dispersion of the material is manipulated in time, producing a ‘time hole’ in the probe beam to hide the occurrence of the event from the observer15. This approach is based on accelerating the front part of a probe light beam and slowing down its rear part to create a well controlled temporal gap—

If that is true then how can the cloaked event happen if the time in that locality is stopped?
WTF!!
My head hurts.....

look above there is a picture that explains a bit better how it works.

Its a time bubble. Oh man its hard to explain something as relative as time let alone relativity of displaced time.
Suffice to say its like they slow time down around the event but the event itself is moving at normal speed relative to the light around it.

First you have to understand how you perceive reality which is light which has a "supposed" constant speed relative to itself i guess.

Time only stops (actually, doesn't exist at all, rather than stops...but we'll call it stops) according to an external observer. If you happened to be walking around inside the cloaked area, time would go on as usual, but it would be unobservable to anyone on the outside.
It's relativity.

Erm. They're playing with light - not time. Still cool tho.

The entire experiment occurred inside a fiber optics cable.

There was a post a while back with a video of soldiers during the Iraq war. It showed a tank and then a soldier suddenly appearing.

Anyway, the general rule of thumb is the military is usually ahead 25 years. If they didn't have something better already there is no way they would let this out and give others the idea.

Indeed they are but its still time dilation relative to an outside observer. The bending of light results in the bending of observable time. Like the event horizon of a black hole. A person falling into a black hole would seem to fall in for eternity to an outside observer but the person themselves would be spaghettified long ago.

Sadly This technology, and future implications and uses of it are already in the wrong hands. Limits must be made. who will control the use of that tech??,as I already said, this tech is in the wrong hands

As much as i agree with you, the research was funded by DARPA. So its not like the military to spend billions on research and just hand it over to the public where it can be accessed by foreign powers.

As long as we live in a world dominated by competition we will have to settle for scrap hand me down technology from the military. Sad but what can you do about it.

Are you saying the act of observation determines reality? Specifically, sensory limits on observation?

Clearly the ramifications of this have gone completely over your head. The backbone of this research has gone beyond the theoretical and now is in the realm of the possible.

Just THINK about that for a minute...OK?

Whether it is for a picosecond or for longer durations, the scope of possibility is monumental.

We are delving into further scientifically understanding what constitutes reality and our perception of it.

If this little tidbit is just now released I bet dollars to donuts that they military is a little further ahead in this research than is admitted.

Hey TimeLord,

This can possibly lead to explanations towards some cases of Timeslips and other dimensional anomalies and our understanding of the next dimensions. If the bending of light can produce such cloaking....what is behind the curtain??

Opening your mind to the possibilities is the first step. Some people just fear coming out of the cave.
