"I've heard that argument before. We're already talking time travel, which is pretty radical all by itself. If time is a "dimension," as
physicists claim, surely space is."
I believe they claim its a dimension,, because its a necessary, or realistic measurement of matter and space... we use light years, a measurement of
time to measure distance,,
"If time can be manipulated, then perhaps space can also be manipulated. Many explanations of string theory's dimensions, for example, are explained
in part by using a mobius strip to show how one dimension can be close to another. Explanations of Faster than Light Travel inevitably show a curving
of space to allow two remote spaces to be close to another."
I think faster then light travel showing two remote spaces close to each other, is a brain teaser play on words and concepts,,.,. in the way that,,,,,
If im on earth traveling 1000 mph,,, and im going from point A to point B,,, the 2 remote spaces of point A and point B will be closer to each other (
in time) then if i was traveling 1 mph....
this is why we need to better define and grasp time,,, and realize that the concept of time is closely linked with motion, decay, physical process and
change, movement,,,, and if the universe as a whole related entity was began, whether from a big bang or whatever,, that was the starting point of the
forward "changing" of time for all energy and matter of the universe....
the only way i can imagine other dimensions existing and time travel to the past being possible,, is if the universe has some kind of memory bank,,
or hard drive,,, where every planks length and quantum flux of information of the entire universe is plotted and stored and physically accessible,,,
but thats a lot of information,,, if thats not the case.,.,,.,.. no matter what time machine we agree upon having built that "works" how will we
access a physical universe that no longer exists ( the past)?
