    If time travel was made possible, don't you think someone from some time in the future would have screwed up and told someone from the past about it, which would mean that we would know that it would eventually be invented, which we don't, which probably means that it never is (invented).

    lol, that was probably too confusing to understand, anyway, this will be interesting if they really have observed particles travelling faster than the speed of light.

    With time travel you can only go into the future.

    The concept of time travel is kind of, well, complex.
    Just because it's kind of odd to disappear all of a sudden.
    Where would you go? In a white place with weird squares? (from spongebob [​IMG])
    But, if someone did alter the past, wouldn't they be transported to another world? Or would the person who did get transported back to our dimension with no changes in it?
    If that is true, that means there are infinite dimensions. Just because there's many people on earth and they make decisions. If they change their decision, they're in a different dimension.
    (and, that didn't really make sense [​IMG])

    Good god.
    All this because I happened to mention the correlation between the speed of light (aka THE TOPIC) and the possibility of time travel.

    I kinda of feel, "Like I don't care, who cares?" and "How is this gonna cause problems? for them or us?" I know I didn't have to post but, meh why not, still pretty neat though!

    Perhaps this can lead to super clocked cpu speeds..

    well if any thing goes faster then the speed of light there is the possiblity of the faster moving object to create ripples in time and space hince if we find the possibilty of using this ripple we could in theory travel thought time another theory is that we create a rip in space and time then leading to the discovery of other universes and the power to time travel to any time we would think of

    this would be a lot less confusing if true (only time will tell - if we ever even get around to time travel, that is [​IMG])

    even if it were possible it wouldn't happen it's been theorized than when you go back/forward in time your actually entering a parallel universe so you can go fuck up the timeline as much as possible and it wouldn't effect YOUR timeline. of course it's also been theorized than you will be trapped in that dimension and never be able to find your way back to yours [​IMG]

    wow thinking about it makes me think about it is it really wourth traveling back in time if you can't return to your home sure you will make a scientific break though but is it really worth it?

    Well, propably another group of scientist will come and say "well, they did this wrong and bla bla..." and the two groups will start fighting xd.

    If time travel was to be possible, I thing it will only allow travel to future.

    I read this one theory that when people travel at light speed, they do not age or something, so what they could do, is to travel in light speed around and around the universe (or anywhere anyway) untill the desired time is there, then stop, by then you would be in 2050 but still be 16 years old.
