Einstein's belief in an undivided solid reality was clear to him, so much so that he completely rejected the separation we experience as the moment of now. He believed there is no true division between past and future, there is rather a single existence. His most descriptive testimony to this faith came when his lifelong friend Besso died. Einstein wrote a letter to Besso's family, saying that although Besso had preceded him in death it was of no consequence, "...for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one."

I have thought about time travel and it is possible, but only forward. This came a a thought one day. Mentally, we travel to the future every time we fall asleep while physically our body stays. For example: Two people are in a room. One falls asleep while the other stays awake. The person asleep already knows what the next day is like. This is because, as we sleep, the hours that pass feel like mere minutes and time seems to fly as we sleep. So while the one person is awake, the person that is asleep in the room, mentally, is already awake and ready for the next day while physically he is viewed as asleep. What are your opinions on this theory and time travel in general?
