If there was a way for people to travel from the future, they would have to have a portable machine because we sure as hell have no way for them to get back. Yet. And whats to say this guy isn't from the future and invented this to get the heck outta here? I myself wouldn't mind going back on a one way trip with some winning lottery numbers, and take some risks I should have taken when I was younger. But then again not like the pepsi commercial

i like the whole thereory, just so i can imput my opinion. I think that time isnt linear, it goes slower at some parts faster at others, depending your state of mind, so find a way to go back, you wont know how to go to where you want to be. Also, i think, you would have no effect in the past, you might try to do something and its like you are not even there, thats just my theory, just stuff i think about when im about to go to sleep :\

As to the people talking about time parodoxes: if you look deeply enough into the physics, then you realize that a paradox can't occur, because you're not creating a loop as such, you're creating branching timelines from your actions, we think.

Maybe this is a little bit out there for asking on this forum, but does anyone have an idea how a laser is supposed to create this gravitational vortex they're talking about? I'm not a doctor of physics, but it would seem to me that if gravitational whirlpools are as easy as setting up a loop of laser light then contragravity, the problem of absolute zero and time travel should be readily obvious already...

What if he does build it? He steps into the laser, gets brought back in time, does what he needs to do, then what? The laser wasn't built back then so he has no way of going back.

That would kick ass to be able to go back in time. But I don't think it'll ever happen.

If time travel were possible, somebody from the future would have arrived by now.

Snake! You can't do that! The future will be changed! You'll create a time paradox!!

if he saw his father, then why didn't he see his future self (when he was a kid) talking to his dad?

If it did end up working, imagin how touched the father would be. His son did the impossible just to see him.

I didn't bother reading five pages of comments, so if what I've said has already been said, sorry.

I learned in physics last year that traveling into the future is possible if you go faster than the speed of light (which I'm not sure if that's possible or not) but you'll still live the same amount of years relative to yourself, it's just everyone not going the speed of light will be moving a lot faster relative to you. However, if time travel to the past was ever invented, even if there were strict rules not to make yourself seen, don't you think at one point time machines will be on the black market and some joker will go to like the American Revolution or something and streak around? But we've never seen that happen so I don't think it's gonna happen.

For one, time is only re;evant so you can't travel into something that essentially doesn't exist... That's why time travel never has, and never will be invented.

No, SuperWombat, people who are prejudice are dumb and quite ignorant.
And I must say, I'm enjoying the comments far more than the actual post.

Call me crazy, but i think all this is very possible

People going into the past would screw up the future yada yada ya... but think about it.. when we get to the point where humans can travel back, surely there'd be some super tight massive rules in using it to prevent anyone from the future from being seen

*shify eyes* The people from the future could be watching us right now o.O *shudder*

Also, that guy never said he wanted to go back and save his dad! He just said when he was a boy he desperately wanted to see his dad again, he's a proffesor of physics now, he would know its not possible to save him

acctually, this is a great video explaining how the dimensions relate to eachother.

first, his analogy with the 2D/3D thing isnt quite the same... the piece of paper isnt moving in quite in a line... one point in time is like a "point" in the 4th dimension. a line in the 4th dimension is basicly just everything existing for a certain amount of time. the 4th dimension is theoretically the first dimension... one line. the FIFTH dimension however, is like the second... it is not just a line of time, but a line that can bend/branch off in more than one direction. a cirlce is just a curved line, right? in the same way, a line of time can bend to form circles and "trees".
the 6th dimension is like the 3rd, in that its basically a bend in the previous demension... you can bend a square to form a tube shape... you can bend the 5th dimension, or a bend/branch in time, to form a new "object". you can only travel in a straight line in the fourth dimension, you would have to enter the fifth in order to go anthign otehr than a straight line.
