I have pondered the thought of time, and time travel for a long time, and so far this is what I have came up with...
I believe that time travel is possible, although highly improbable. The amount of energy that it would take to make time travel possible is immense.
Also, parallel universes (PU) exist, and that each decision or reaction creates a new reality, or an alternate timeline (AT). Albeit, the changes can
be very small and very indifferent, they are there otherwise. The changes can also be immense, due to the butterfly effect.
The reason why I bring up parallel universes/alternate timelines, is because of paradoxes. There cannot be any paradoxes due to the fact that your
presence in the past creates a new PU/AT, even if you arrive and stand still. It adds what I would like to say, another number to the complex
probabilities of life. Hence, you can kill your own grandfather, but nothing will happen to you, since you on a whole other timeline.
Bad news everyone! (Dr. Farnsworth's voice) This ^ means that you cannot change anything from your past (the past is permanent.)
Well, ok, not entirely permanent, (I lied) but again, Highly HIGHLY improbable to change. And still, you would have no memory of doing so. In order to
time travel backwards and stay in the same timeline you are now, you would have to reverse every change perfectly. every molecule, every atom, every
quark, neutrinos, ect. and not for just your local area. For the ENTIRE Universe. And yet, even then one change from your past (which by the way,
you wouldn't know if you had changed anything significant, since in reversing every molecule that had ever existed, you also erased your own memory)
would still create an PU/AT. And thats all going without saying that you would need a MASSIVE energy source to conduct this, that wouldn't shut down
the second you turn it on, since the spark that made it work wasn't even started the second before.
Anyway, I'm getting off of here for tonight. (Had to write this down before I get some shut eye. It's 11 pm CST). I want to welcome anyone up for
discussion on this to please chime in (I love this subject, and would love new ideas and thoughts on it, since I cannot find anyone near me that
comprehends these kind of things). I will try to be on tomorrow sometime, I do have a busy work schedule, so it can be hard for me to get online
sometimes. ALSO. I do love topics such as this, so If you have any discussions that I might be interested in, just send me a U2U and I will try to
chime in on whatever thoughts you may have. Thanks!
