I expect some may think this is not the standard fair for Breaking Alternative News; but I beg to differ.
In a nutshell, it appears that recently completed analysis of particle physics research has proven a fact - which at the very least seems to be
consistent for some
Time has a direction... it moves in a 'direction'... and were it to move relatively backwards... it wouldn't simply 'reverse' what has
happened while going forward ... matter would actually 'change' inconsistently and not necessarily conform to what happened "going forward"...
Because of our community's familiarity with alternative subjects and people who figure prominently within that narrative - assuming the above is
correct: John Titor's claims of time travel cannot work.
The physics at this level of reality may be esoteric... but for the interested....
The application of quantum mechanics to fundamental particles rests on a symmetry known as CPT, for charge-parity-time, which states that
fundamental processes remain unchanged when particles are replaced by their antimatter counterparts (C), left and right are reversed (P), and time
runs in the reverse direction (T).
These three elements of matter (charge-parity-time) had been for the most part entangled and not generally measurable (or observable) discretely (as
in separately from one another.) Earlier experiments have hinted that time had this quality and that reverse time would likely lead to the
"Hollywood-esque" imagery of everything simply "backing up" like so much reversed video or audio.
Theoretical physicists at the University of Valencia in Spain worked with researchers on BaBar to exploit the fact that the experiment had
generated entangled quantum states of the meson Bzero and its antimatter counterpart Bzero-bar, which then evolved through several different decay
chains. By comparing the rates of decay in chains in which one type of decay happened before another, with others in which the order was reversed, the
researchers were able to compare processes that were effectively time reversed version of each other. They report in Physical Review Letters today
that they see a violation of time reversal at an extremely high level of statistical significance.
“It was important to measure time reversal independently of charge-parity violation because there was always the possibility something was wrong
with the full picture,” says Fabio Anulli of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics in Rome, who is physics coordinator for BaBar.
This would mean that anyone travelling back in time might likely not survive the trip, as the laws of physics indicate a likely breakdown of matter
states which would render such a theoretical trip - suicide.
Now the truth is, I am hoping members more well-versed in this area of knowledge may correct me, if I am misunderstanding....
But when I thought of some of the tales of time travelers which we hear from time to time... I found this to be an interesting observation to add to
