Is time travel real?

This question has intrigued me for a long time. What I have come to conclude...traveling to the future? Anybody's guess. Traveling to the past? Yes, with conditions. I've read (in regard to the UFO subject), you can go back but only as a viewer. Impossible to change that which has already happened. Think about it. If you now say something , it is said. Going to the past or future will never change that. If it could be changed, then in reality, nothing is reliable, nothing makes sense and if you mention multiple universes..could be but I am only interested in the universe I am in, not others.

I think its definitely possible and probably not as difficult as we assume it to be, I believe we can do MUCH MUCH more with our minds than we currently think, we just do not yet know how to access or flip the switch to 'on'.


Regarding going back or forward and changing things, I have a feeling 'nature' will have roadblocks/hurdles in place to prevent that from happening. (i.e..we could go back in time and kill our grandparents...but when we come back to our current time, everything will still be as it was when we left).

What you describe sounds like remote viewing. From our perspective, the past is like a book; it's already written. But if you are in the present and are able to see into the future, then you can make changes now to affect the future. The future is fluid.

The past is only observable, not changeable, but the future.... It would be theoretically possible to 'slow' time, relative in the sense of one place to another.

As one object approaches the speed of light, in this example a spaceship, it would be able to travel for a short period of relative time compared to another slow-moving object, like a planet.

By this method, the inhabitants of the spacecraft would be able to travel into the future.

Here is a good link that explains some of the science and speculation: https://www.space.com/21675-time-travel.html.

Time travel into the future is possible. A bear hibernates for six months and it wakes up six months in the future. While there aren't a lot of changes in six months, a few decades of hibernation (cryogenically frozen) would bring a lot of changes when one wakes up.

Yes; but how is that going to give us next week's winning lottery numbers?

You would need to memorize last week's winning numbers and time travel a little further back to take advantage. However, since the arrow of time seems to move in only one direction -- forward, traveling back in time is practically impossible.

Thus traveling into the future is the only way. Every morning we wake up in the future. Over times this adds up and we remember what happened 10, 20, 40 years ago. So in a way, with our memory we can travel back.

Scientist: "I've set my time machine to send me into the future - but only five minutes into the future. So now I'm actually 5 minutes ahead of you."

Skeptic: "How is that possible?"

Scientist: "I knew you'd say that."

Time Travel Joke:


The bartender says: We don't serve Tachyons here.


A Tachyon walks into a bar.




If you want to read a good novel about seeing the future read Flash Forward by Robert J. Sawyer.


It became a TV show in 2009. The show was good, the book was better.
