## I think I figured out time travel!!!.....sort of :(

I think I stumbled upon the secret to time travel thanks to the thoughts provoked by a previous topic. The secret to it is storage!! as of now time travel to go backwards is to try and get to a place that no longer exists. its like trying to watch last sundays football game but you didn't hit recored on the VCR. As I see it if we want to ever suceed at time travel we need a way to recored and regenerate/exactly simulate life. right now time travel is only possible in minute viewings on recorded video. in order to fully exsperience and interact with life as it was we would need to invent a way to recored the planet and store it for future simulations, ala star trek halodeck. we need to come up with a way to capture life or at least a 3D true to life recording of it. This seems a daunting task but if it were ever achievable we would the be able to experience previous times. if maybe or AI abilities improved we could then apply this to future time travel.... come up with a way to extract information from the recordings we have to generate a logically sound hypothetical projection of future existence. ya, ya.... I know I'm retarded..... but it makes sence to me :p

Well, time travel has never really been a secret. It's just that time is relative to the observer, hence einstein's theory of relativity. In order to successfully time travel , we would need to be able to move at the speed of life. SO say you have a rocket, it goes at the speed of light, you get in, and travel for 60 seconds. You would not age but the 60 seconds. Everyone else would age the amount of time it would take to normally travel the amount of space you traveled. It's not possible to travel back in time, only forward, dont ask me why i dont really know how to explain it, you just cant.

What about chaos theroy and the bending of space-time, plus light cones. And what about event horizons and the properities of dimentional travel through the use of tesseracts.

Because time, like an inch or a meter is considered to be only a measurement, and little else. Thus we don't really "move" in time, we occupy the present moment, always, but that moment is relative to "endurance" and the speed at which the observer is moving.

Correct. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! :P

I don't seek power, but I find knowledge very intriguing LOL

Knowledge = power = energy = mass

That's why really big, old bookshops have all those odd little aisles and corridors that shouldn't really fit in the space they do, and end in tiny little doors too small to use - the weight of all those words is bending space and time.

So that is what is making me so "massive" LOL *sigh*

Einstien failed math

Oh ho ho. Goodhart pwned you chaos. :D

One widely held belief about Einstein is that he failed math as a student, an assertion that is made, often accompanied by the phrase â€as everyone knows,â€ by scores of books and thousands of websites designed to reassure underachieving students. A Google search of Einstein failed math turns up more than 500,000 references. The allegation even made it into the famous â€Ripleyâ€™s Believe it or Not!â€ newspaper column.

Alas, Einsteinâ€™s childhood offers history many savory ironies, but this is not one of them. In 1935, a rabbi in Princeton showed him a clipping of the Ripleyâ€™s column with the headline â€Greatest living mathematician failed in mathematics.â€ Einstein laughed. â€I never failed in mathematics,â€ he replied, correctly. â€Before I was fifteen I had mastered differential and integral calculus.â€ In primary school, he was at the top of his class and â€far above the school requirementsâ€ in math. By age 12, his sister recalled, â€he already had a predilection for solving complicated problems in applied arithmetic,â€ and he decided to see if he could jump ahead by learning geometry and algebra on his own. His parents bought him the textbooks in advance so that he could master them over summer vacation. Not only did he learn the proofs in the books, he also tackled the new theories by trying to prove them on his own. He even came up on his own with a way to prove the Pythagorean theory.
