iansquall, if you had read the comments then you'd have seen that he realises that it's impossible. But why give up your life's work just like that? Discovering time travel is still really amazing and being the guy to discover it...that's just not something you throw away.

I hate it that people don't read previous comments. If you think you're cool coming up with your grandfather paradox, then read the comments about different a different timeline offshooting from there. That grandfather you just killed isn't your own, it's the grandfather of your parallel self.

So iansquall, your philosophy teacher may have argued that the future we're in now cannot be altered because any alterations would occur on a seperate timeline, and thus not affecting us.

Anyway, I'm wasting my time. Soon there'll be another influx of people piping up about the grandfather paradox. Sigh.

seems perfectly logical to me. to test the subatomic partical, they set up the laser time machine now. then say all of the sudden subatomic particals appear in the machine. these particals are from maybe 2 weeks in the furter where their futer selves put subatomic particals into. Not sure if you under stood that but time IS a VERY cofusing this to most people. I think about alot from time to time and work out my confusion. PLUS i'v seen the full version of this clip on discovery channel a while ago.

Many of you have expressed extreme skeptisism over this topic with absolutely zero willingness to look up the information for yourself. The FACT of the matter is, none of this information is new... not even close. The fact that most of you dismiss this stuff so easily just because you cannot wrap it around your tiny little selfish brains is no surprise.

A person wrote a novella (I believe in the 40's or 60's) called "Flatland" that puts the whole "paper" thing into perspective for you. Read it. Then read a book called "Hyperspace" so you can get all the concepts included the 10 or so dimensions of space and time. The author does a great job breaking it down Barney-Style for you morons out there.
For the record, I do not believe Time Travel will happen, but only because of paradoxical reasons, or the possibility that significant time travel will negate our reality.
We can prove most things on paper, but every system has entropy in real life.

If a time machine were created, one CANNOT go further into the past than when the machine was turned on.

Meaning... no stopping Hitler, no stopping wars from the 20th century back, etc.

*looks at all the paradox doomsayers* Or modifying a past event might just create a new "piece of paper" (or plane of existence) that is relative to the particle that was modified.

Which would imply that every particle has its own personal plane of existence; how they overlap to form a stable mass is still a bit beyond me though. I'm no scientist. :)

*wipes bits of my brain off of the monitor*

Wait, if the whole point of this guy's mission to build a time machine is to go back and see his father, and time machines probably won't be around for a WHILE, he'll be dead. How's he gonna go back in time to save his father? (probably not the entire point, I know, but he seemed so intent on doing that and it confused me)

On the time traveling theory itself... my philosophy teacher said something about the past not adversely having any effect on the future even if you go back and change things. I don't remember (and I hate myself for forgetting this) what he used to back up his argument, but it was a reaally good point.

Actually, Invalok, If he were to go back in time and save his father, then all would be well from then on. However we wouldn't have the gift of time travel.

What you said was true for killing your own grandfather. PARADOX.

There is a theory that there is a universe for every possible way an atom can react to another. If this is the case, going back into the future would no cause any damage to our world, only affect the world the time traveler is traveling in.
I dont know if it's true, but who knows!

This is just a baby step. It's like sending a dog into space. We don't know what's gonna happen if we send back a human. This technology needs to advance more before it can live up to all your expectations. Be patient.

Well, time travel would explain how religion came about.

"Look at me! The waters are parting!"

*fiddles with futuristic device*

"Look! Its working! Now you will accept me as your god and do whatever I tell you to for the rest of my life!"

Just a theory.

But anyone can time travel.. go sleep in a bed and you'll awake several hours in the future! I do this in my lab all the time.
Oh, we're talking about going BACK in time, hmm-- nope, won't happen.

The paper and paperclip evidence is compelling, not to mention referencing a movie. Wow, I'm excited!

Did any of you guys who just say "Nope time travel can't happen" actually watch it? To answer the "Wouldn't we go back in time to stop terrorists" question, some people believe the past can't be altered. Haha, i think i saw it on The Twilight Zone. Someone went back in time to kill Hitler and his gun jammed.

if we ever came up with time travel wouldn't we know already since our future would have traveled back in time and said hello to us?

if timetravel was ever going to be possible, then we would always have known.. just think, don't you think that if in the future timetravel was possible someone would have gone past in time to do things like stopping terrorist attacks ecc ecc? plus, they would go bvack in time to steal precious treasures from distruction.. plus, how bout the paradoxes?? if this guy is going to save his father from death with the time machine, he'll never make one, thus making his father dying, thus making him making a timemachine ecc ecc.. travvelling in the future is possible thanks to speed.. but timetravel in the past is never, nor will ever be possible!!
