Scientists Say Time Travel is Theoretically Possible

Scientists Say Time Travel is Theoretically Possible:  A new study, published in the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity, says that while the ability to time travel will not be possible any time soon, there is no mathematical reason why we couldn’t time travel.  Call me a cynical, but who the hell wants to blast themselves out hundreds of years into the future - to a time when all your damn credit cards are gonna be expired?

Study Finds Sex a Key Part of Life for People Over 65:  A new survey revealed that sex is not only a pursuit of the young and carefree, but also a key part of life for adults in their later years, with 84% of men and 69% of women between 65 and 80 feeling that sex is important to a relationship at any age.  While sex may be a “key part” of life for people over 65, you can just bet that a lot of them have misplaced those keys.

New Theory Suggests Toxic Flowers Helped Wipe Out Dinosaurs:  A new hypothesis suggests that dinosaur’s need to consume huge amounts plants in order to stay alive - many of which were quite toxic, is partly to blame for their demise.  I suppose if there’s one lesson we can all use here, its never accept a bouquet of flowers from a Tyrannosaurs.

the 'time travel' debate has always interested me.i believe its totally impossible because 'time' is a totally made up human concept based on counting spins/orbits of this dust mote and meaningless to the rest of the universe and AI.were it doable,you would have to specify an EVENT to travel to that ocurred in the past,not a fabricated number,and future would be impossible since no event has happened yet.telling a machine to take you to a specific 'number' would be like an AI telling you to only talk to it in binary code.course,all speculation,based only on assumption,but always fun to kick around.....R&L..

My guess would be that we could only travel back in time. Travel forward in time would require being able to travel faster than the speed of light and into a dimension of emptiness because nothing could be there prior to our arrival....That  is, of course, unless our future is somebody else's past...

Re the sex after 60....

If  you can have an orgasm without dying because of it, sex will remain important until it can kill you...

On the other hand, I can't imagine a better way to go...

My issue with time travel is one I’ve never seen addressed, not the when but the where. Let’s say your time machine is on a moving ship and you set your time for fifteen minutes in the past or the future. If the machine works, do you rematerialize on the ship or in the water? 

Or neither? I use the ship to illustrate the problem of being on a moving platform, but we live on a moving platform on a moving platform on a moving platform on a moving platform. Earth is rotating (spinning), and the planet is moving around the son which is moving around the galaxy which is moving away from the Big Bang. Even if you’re standing still on Earth and are not on a ship (which would add yet another moving platform), where were you fifteen minutes ago? Well, in relation to what?

you go to an event,not a 'time'......we did this go around would actually have to travel to a "what"....not a "when"...

."you would actually have to travel to a "what"....not a "when"..."

Which is precisely why we can't travel to the future where the 'what' hasn't happened yet....

in 2010 in a university study an electronic signal was sent back in time but for only a short that was measurable. This did technically prove it was possible, and if it was actually possible by today's idiotic political orientation it would prove a catastrophic tool of social engineering. Nope! It is said Einstein who finished his Unified Field Theorem had figured out time travel and then considering the implication if man got hold of such power, he is said to have destroyed the papers! I suggest everybody read Ray Bradbury's "The Sound of Thunder" very relative to this subject!

i should clarify that.....if a faster than light particle were discovered,and the means to focus and control it,it could be used to "catch up" to the light that passed over past events and provide a peek......not actually 'going back'...

All good points, but with regard to traveling to the furure, some physicists believe that "spacetime" is on a continuium and that everything that ever will happen - has already happened.  Like a loaf of sliced bread, "time" is just traveling through different segments of that continuium.  At this point in "time," I think it will be quite a long while before we're able to know anything definitive about that.  That said, the only reason I suggested travel to the future, was for the sake of the punchline of the joke.
