Instructables

My Working (well, closer than anyone else's i think) Time-Machine

This is , well, not exactly an instructable as i am not implying that I or anyone else is going to / has / or will soon build one and yes , some of it is based on theorey. I have tried to make it as technical as possible though . And also it is just a sort of box with all the bits in so as long as whatever it is has ram-jets attached (i'll explain later) it is compatible .

See what you think . REMEMBER - Just a bit of fun, does not need constructive critiscism just your opinion .

As for the physics and theories... this isnt some smartass A-level student. I am 14. When i thought this up i was 11. I have deliberately kept it unchanged. Keep it in mind as you look.

Step 1: The theory - what i can't prove.

Picture of The theory - what i can't prove.
Right. This is the stuff that msut be taken for granted.

Imagine a void, something like the concept of the space-time vortex in Dr. Who. A place outisde space and time. It would be a tube shape but would be cyclical - keep going round . So a doughnut shape. Ever heard the old time-travel theorey? Get a black hole, bend it in a doughnut , put a tube in the middle and run down at the speed of light? Well this also uses doughnuts - the shape concentrates forces in the centre. In my theorey, these concentrated forces made the univeres inside and around it, especially inside. The idea is that you can go from place/time to place/time by going into the void, going to a 'window' (the other side of the void) to another part of reality and then break out again. There is no matter or antimatter in the void. But you/matter is attracted to othermatter/the universe , so... getting out is easy. Getting in ... hard. To do so you must break a hole in the wall of the void, a hole in space and time. As the matter and nothingness repell the leak seals instantly after.

Below : Picture of black hole with something that scientists have noticed but don't know what it is around it.

Now to break a hole in spacetime you will need 2 things. To go very fast, nearing the speed of light where time starts to bend. And to react matter with antimatter. Now 2 problems occur . Man has never gone so fast and there is no antimatter around - it instantly reacts with matter. You can't make a container for it - it will react with the matter of the container. So you have to make the antimatter yourself.

To solve the problems of breaking through spacetime see the next step.

You can contain antimatter. You just need a magnetic containment ring. Just ask Fermilab. Also, you can travel (one way) into the future just by using the time dilation effect that happens when you approach the speed of light. By the way, I am also 14.

Also time travel would be impossible because since you only can travel forward in time you would get there but since the time hasn't happened yet your body wouldn't be there so as soon as you travel you would disintegrate or something(because your atoms{what you and everything is made off} wouldn't exist there so that = death!)If you get what I mean.

You know how in all the movies like Back to the Future how they go into the future. To my very limited knowledge (in fact, none of this is based on fact, pure common sense and speculation) going forward in time would be impossible because, simply, there is no future. This may not be true but I also thought it up when I was 11. The future is nothing until it becomes the present. Therefore, you would always only be able to travel to the past and, after this, you would have to stay there for the rest of your life. This is a factor overlooked by naive people who try to make time machines out of a cordboard box and a Sharpie or people who actually know what they are doing. This will also complicate matters even further because you will need multiple time machines, and if it costs billions of dollars, too bad. This will make time travel usefull in lots of situations, but only able to be used at a dire situation. Time travel is a long way away, but hopefully most of the kinks will have been worked out. But even after that, remember: NO GOING TO THE FUTURE!
My time machine works.
I want a time machine too! I just need it for....like a second! I have to go back, and knock myself unconscious just before my first wedding! Drag myself to the machine, and travel to today to leave myself a note to remind me that I must tell you that I want a time machine too! Oh....wait.....LOL
Sorry, only goes forward.
if it olny goes forward how are you here to prove it hmm..... what year did you come from?
i bet he wrote that when he was in the future cuz this would be from the past so he could read it from the future
If it only goes forward, does that mean once to travel to the future, you can't return to this time? Well, what a dumb question...of course that's what it means. Well, at least I tried.
but then because of the paradox you'd have to kill yourself
amazing! make me one!
It's huge. Like, HUGE!
I dont care! I WANT IT!!!
It would cost about 2000$, and I am not offering refunds.
The *technoligy* behind it is classified, all I tell you is you can only go forward, and no coming back.
Can't even spell technology right. Wow i wouldn't trust him to make me a time machine. (here is an example " year 3000 please" destination set. approaching year 1,000,000,000 "NO! NO! NO!") Boom your dead
I think it's funny because you still don't get it.
i know its a joke....(now. hey, who said that? see? i can be funny but um......... oh &^%@ im still in the parenthaceses) (lol) (look im 11 6th gread just started like a week ago and normally i get all A's except for last year. lets just say two of the teachers where &^#@%) (when will this end) (one said your son is disorginized....but then coulden't find my grades. lol.) see all the things in the paraentices all the jokes lol
haha, no, my idea for a time machine would work perfectly. It only goes into the future, if you try to go too far into the future it might kill you, and it's really cheap to build.
no because the future has not been made but what i said before is complacted because your from the future it has alredy been made in the space time continueum (look kids its the new time machine if you try to go too far into the future it might kill you, and it's really cheap to build,and its fun to commit suiside free of pain buy it today for only 1,999.95 (and you call that cheap 3,000,000,000 pounds of crack would be cheaper (by the dozen) id know cuz i play gta china town (well, used to. sold it for...lets not get off topic here. but really i sold it for ps2 i had 10,000,000,000 dollars because of cheats all of the best guns (cheat again) and every house and the best cars (the f1 was awesome) (did i mention i had a tank cuz i did) completed all of the mini missions (like the crazy woman that was going to die) last but not least got all the wa to the x-zen missions after getting the statues)
grade lol
remember, going forward is IMPOSSIBLE! plus, $2000 is a rip off on your part, in other words, youre practically giving it to me! plus, the government of the US or China would find out eventually so HA!
Oh really? My time machine CAN go forwards. 2000$ is actually enough to cover the labor. The materials vary, how strong do you want it? The stronger it is, the further into the future it can go.
ultra strong, but its still a steal DEAL!
Are you sure? Ill sell you the design planes for 10$! I don't wanna go through shipping and stuff.
theres some money I actually have!
But...If we went into the past...and told someone. . .where would we say we came from. . .if the future does not exist?
Bigger Issue, if the future doesn't exist, what do you return to since that would be the pasts future
Good point. Once you've gone back, then the point in time of arrival becomees the present. So, "present A" is say 2009, and "present B" is 1809. . .If we travel from A to B. . .and the theory that the future does not exist. . .then once we arrive in 1809, with the future not existing, we can't say we're from something that doesn't exist. If ILIKEPIE's theory were correct. . .then there would be no time travel at all. . .for we can't travel to something that wouldn't exist. . .nor could we travel FROM something that wouldn't exist. The true paradox is this. . .I am married to a beautiful redhead who with the body of an angel. . . .why am I even writing this!? Ha ha. . .seriously. . .good point though, X! Sounds like you might some theories of your own about temporal mechanix?
5th element much lol
I follow steven Kings theory of time travel..you can go back, but only a day, and nothing will be there, and everything will be flat and stale, and if you don't leave before that day is up you'll be eaten
Yes, The Langoliers! Actually, I remember seeing it that way too. It just made sense. I guess a problem I have is not sticking to one theory. Well, I suppose I do. . .and that theory is simply that time is a concept created by people to justify the passing of events. Time as a fabric or tangible substance sometimes is an acceptable belief, other times, lol, it is not. Sometimes, I think that if we simply remember an event, for a brief moment, we're transported "there". I believe that time travel is possible. On paper macro wormholes may just open small molecular(sp) portals through that "fabric", however, I also believe that an evolution of the mind is the key to "travel". Then again, for all I know, the ufos and aliens that people are seeing today are simply our future selves "coming back" to this time to observe history in the making. Once we accept that the limitations to our abilities are not as restricting as we were told, we will begin to unfold those things that are/were mysteries to the mind. It will be like seeing again for the first time. "Never underestimate the sin of turning one's back to time".
first, thank you for acknowleging me and my theory
Second, I agree with you that time is not such a solid thing. Time is something made up by people to justify the passing of events as you put it. There is no time, it is not a natural thing. Therefor time travel might be completely impossible. (for us, at least) That would suck, and it kind of contradicts some of the things you and I said. Time is like a fabric, but an extremely strong fabric that cannot be torn by anything we, meaning humans, can produce.(if we could actually time travel) If you look at the sun, does it rip through time? (this might not matter, but the sun has much power) The answer: No. (It could, but we cant see it) This means that we would have to make more power than the most powerful star or immense sucking power like a black hole (if the theories are correct). This theory has many variables, and I have condensed it partly because of the space limitations, and partly because I am a horrible writer and cannot think of anything else.( I am a 13 year old thinking this up off the top of my head, so this may be extremely wrong, but I wouldnt know.) I have lots of theories yet to think up! Look for more of them in the not too distant future. (just dont try to cheat by trying to use a time machine, because it is impossible!)
Then why do they keep observing redneck farmers?
hahahahaha! Good question! LOL Maybe redneck farmers hold some key to saving humanity? LOL It's always some guys fishing, hunting, or "mendin' a fence" who have the best stories! We should start a campaign to supply drunk fishermen and farmers with video cameras to finally get proof! DISCLAIMER * To all concerned: Neither Xaviorbat or tnj0201 indicate, or attempt to imply, that fishermen, farmers, or farmers who either are or intend to become, a fisherman, or fishermen who farm or hunt, or hunt fish on farms are alcoholics. We believe that in the spirit of the "be nice" policy, and in the spirit of general good will towards all, it is important to state that the above mentioned are important, founding assets to and of our country. We strongly protest ANY type of character profiling! Sound okay?
our future not the past's future which is our present
but if you travel to the past with the time machine the future has already been made so you can go back bacause you a made of particles from the future (wait that complacates things further because if its already been made in the preasent then.....

actually you could make a container for antimatter if we only found the technology for force fields since force fields arent matter they could touch the anti-matter. This could also be used to create a bomb. (the forcefields go out when a timer hits 0
if anti-matter touches real matter that turns into anti-matter and that and that and that.......... so if the bomb touched earth we'd all be gone poof no more anything but aliens 
it does turn the matter into anti-matter but it also creates an explosion of pure energy nukes use about 2-5% of the energy they create not imagine something that uses about 50-20 times as much energy that would be like dropping about twenty nukes in the same area it would like you said destroy the earth but any remaining pieces would be melted to glass from the heat of such an explosion
not if the anti matter was involved it be gone
