He described how everything he made he saw in a mystical vision he was able to tap into at will. and the best i can make out from the description was
that it was our future now that he saw.
Well, if he was receiving a vision of the future, he wasn't paying attention. tesla technology is one now being brought back into operation. If he
saw the future, he would have seen that his type of electricity was doomed to failure as you can't bill it.
That said, I'm quite confused as to what you actually want to discuss.... time travel in general? Or specifically dealing with roswell. This is the
first time I've heard a time travel theory about roswell myself.
Now if it's general time travel you want to discuss, I'm in, I love physics and physics does NOT rule out the possibility of time travel.
But if it's about this specific theory? Good luck.
Time is an artificial construct. There is no "time" and certainly no "universal time". Time is merely a product of the effects of gravity and
Stand on the earth with an atomic clock. Send your buddy up into low earth orbit, with a synchronized atomic clock.
For both of you, each second will pass as normal, you will not notice a difference. But when you bring the clocks together, you will see they are no
longer in sync.
Time is relative to the observer.
Because gravity (mass) can warp space/time this shows us that, while our thoughts of "time" aren't based on anything physical, there is some process
we can manipulate.
If you are able to cram enough mass into a small area of space, you will distort space and time around that object. Theoretically, if you can distort
that enough, you can fold space/time back in on itself, which could lead to time travel.
This is where it gets funky. Quantum theory and string theory both propose multiple dimensions AND parallel universes. Some trains of thought
suggest that, if time travel were possible, there would be some universal law governing it to remove our ability to create a paradox. Meaning, in
short, any time travel you do is a one way trip to a brand new parallel universe.
Anyways, right now, all we can do is travel forwards in time, but it's not that far beyond our ability to modify the speed at which time passes for us
compared to others. Someone living at the 100th floor of a skyscraper is experiencing time differently than those on the bottom, but only when the
two observations are compared, to each individual, time passes as normal.
The basic laws of physics don't rule it out, at all. But the state of our technology, certainly does.

Another example is a person moving towards the event horizon of a black hole (the area of no return, once you reach it gravity will not even let light
escape). If you are away watching this, to you, the person will start moving incredibly slowly. Once they hit the event horizon, they will appear to
be frozen in place.
But for that person looking back, it's an entirely different scenario. Yet, a 3rd observer watching this, would see that time is passing as normal,
while the person near the black hole experiences time passing as normal, while the person watching them seems to see time slowing down.
