How can flesh and bones survive in fast speeds, they would've shredded to pieces..I call this one bullshit

It's as likely as humans ever being able to travel to the nearest solar systems .....

Yes, we have traveled to far distance universes, by using the Hubble, Hubble deep field etc. space telescopes.

Time travel is possible. Just look at The Butterfly Effect.

Tr has traveled sideways in time. That's where he received his mensa certification.

It would take 40,000 years to travel to the nearest star so not possible in a human lifetime we have the technology to make the journey. Time travel is only theoretically possible according to mathematics and then only for fundamental particles and has no experimental evidence to validate it

time is linear. end of story.
4 years ago
time isnt linear at all
4 years ago
time is like like a river with infinite forks both backward and forward

what we are learning about time and space right now is insane and things once thought to be right are so wrong its amazing

like the new information about universes and black "holes" and how time works
4 years ago
black holes aka 4d spheres
4 years ago
travel backward or forward on the line then

what was 10 seconds ago is gone
4 years ago
no what 'was' ""10 seconds ago"" is just like a skin on an onion being left behind in an infinitely large peal
4 years ago
"left behind"
perhaps this is just my rudimentary thinking yak, i don't know physics, but "time is linear" seems pretty cut and dry to me
4 years ago
we are not 'travelling' in time we are just a slice of a specific moment.. we are 3dimensional beings so we cant actually move in and out of 4d (or higher) space without aid
4 years ago
what is the 4th dimension?
(other than a kick-ass 70's acid band)
4 years ago
time isnt linear tho.... your thinking is linear about it... but time is anything but linear.. if that were true then you would believe in predestination.. which would mean you dont believe in free will?
4 years ago
the '4th dimension' is free movement in what we call 'time'
4 years ago
we dont have free movement through it naturally tho because we exist in the 3rd dimension
4 years ago
I believe in free will, I just don't believe that time is something that can be manipulated. I believe we can change the events in our future, which really doesn't have anything to do with time. And you're right this may just be my concept of time, but I see no two ways around it.
4 years ago
No one explained gravity to you either, I take it
4 years ago
basically imagine a reel of film.. each frame represents what we call 'time'
3d would be similar to that but instead of a thin film its our 3dimensional space... still just a single frame... each of those frames kind of make up what we perceive as the 4th dimension
4 years ago
it exists in both directions tho.. if you look at a film reel you can look back at the frames.. they exist... we are just moving between each one
4 years ago
Gravity is what I feel when I'm ready to fall into bed.
Time is a theoretical idea that is very realistic, and it keeps slipping slipping slipping into the future.
The future is unbeknownst to us, hence free will.
4 years ago
thats an overly simple way of me to try and explain it but its somewhat at least visual to understand
4 years ago
well thanks yak, i still don't get it, but thanks
perhaps I'm just ignorant...
4 years ago
tbh the idea of time travel is over my head. I live in a black and white world. I understand microorganisms and I understand that there are possible dimensions that we are not part of, I believe a lot of things are possible, but I just don't get black holes or the notion that time isn't linear. You can say this is me being self-deprecating, but I'm jussayin......I don't get it.
4 years ago
will we ever be able to travel back in time? who knows... even if we do tho we likely wont be able to influence our current selves, because they would be a completely different fork in the timeline
imagin:
past me -------- me now ------ future me->
me now is able to jump back in time:
(me now manipulating past me) --------- completely different timeline ---- completely different future --->

I have a masters degree in Physics, i would recommend that you read up on general relativity. It is far from intuitive but can be understood by anyone who has half a brain.
4 years ago
right... that *likely* wouldnt be able to happen
4 years ago
I didn't mean that you have half a brain by the way
4 years ago
can you explain hot hail to me :(
4 years ago
Idk who narcoman is talking to, but I just don't get it. I don't see myself "getting it." I believe that there are other dimensions, but still, you can't go back to the way the world was. It's unfathomable to me.
4 years ago
I'd love to travel back to the 40's and peg some flappers, I just don't think it's realistic.
4 years ago
well the time travelling is likely more likely than the other part :((((((
4 years ago
what? me getting it? or other dimensions?
I know for a fact there's shit all around us that we can't see or explain: science don't know.
All I know is that what happened yesterday I can't relive.
And every time you make me refresh I have to stop looking at Cher's butt :(

It's cheap

i bought boneshaker but havent started drinking yet
4 years ago
well drink up
i really don't want to be at odds with you
i would also like to hear more from narcoman on this matter

I only drink single malt,does less damage to the brain cells than paint stripper and alcohol mixed

not about what you drink faggot
about time travel
4 years ago
I agree with the 'infinite forks forward' part, but how so 'backwards'?
4 years ago
if there are 'infinite forks forward' that means there are 'infinite forks backwards'
that make sense?
4 years ago
the future has to come from somewhere
4 years ago
If you're saying you could potentially travel the same forks backwards that you did forwards, then I understand.
4 years ago
well....................... you cant really... lets say you are on timeline 1
if you were to go back in time to 'timeline 1 past'
it would continue on as another timeline.. so think of it as timeline 1a past
4 years ago
Rather than presuming that you meant, that once in a given spot in time, alternate forks open up for reverse time travel.
4 years ago
no... i dont think you get infinite
4 years ago
forks dont have to 'open up' because infinite is EVERY possible past and EVERY possible future
4 years ago
i just used forks in a river as a visual representation.... there would literally be infinite forks... so if you were to look at it you wouldnt even see forks.. because they would be so densely packed together
4 years ago
Well, yakles, I'm a visual learner, and I'm thinking of what we have been taught of time as linear, but with infinite forks streaming in a web of directions. Now that I really think about it, new spots would open up in time, since going back to the past would have the same amount of varying choices.
4 years ago
time is a difficult thing for us to grasp.. since we only travel through it very straight forwardly its kind of why zeke slips up in it
4 years ago
exactly... going back into a specific past.. would open up infinite choices from that point.. and from the next point (think of it as the next second even though it would be an even smaller measurement of time) an infinite amount of new possiblities... and from the next instant.. another infinite amount of new possibilities
4 years ago
infinity is very large... i dont know if our human brains can even come close to comprehending it
4 years ago
its every single possible outcome and start
so our big bang for example.. its an infinite amount of possible big bangs or starts to the universe.. and an infinite amount of possible ends to it... and everything in between
4 years ago
Indeed, as I said above, about The Butterfly Effect, time travel would really expose how intricate every little chosen detail is.

Theoretically speaking of this 'river' that would explain alternate realities...
4 years ago
well right... 'alternate realities' is explained basically because of vibrations.. things vibrate at a certain frequency
if you are 'out of time' from something you cant perceive it
4 years ago
its one theory of 'ghosts' and all sorts of things
4 years ago
infinite dimensions on top of eachother... all overlapping
4 years ago
we arent transdimensional beings tho so we cant really perceive them or travel to other dimensions easily (without constructing something)
4 years ago
with infinite dimensions or timelines there are dimensions and timelines where zeke or you or everyone created mucho... and also where someone else made this comment... and it was in another language..
4 years ago
infinite... MIND BOGGLING
4 years ago
Infinite is rather hard to wrap your head around. I do believe however, at any given nanosecond there are finite possibilities, with that changing every nanosecond afterwards.

I can wrap my head around parallel dimensions, not the notion of manipulating time though. It's just so straight forward. Time passes. The end.
4 years ago
Narcoman, actually it would take 80,000 years.
And zeke, time is not linear.
