Yeah, I'm much more skeptical about the ability to travel back in time. I never say never, but the physics just doesn't seem to work.

Traveling forward in time at an accelerated rate is not only possible but probable. Just difficult.

Unless, of course, the multiverse theory is true. Consider each timeline as a "thread," and every choice and action spawns its own thread. There would be an almost infinite amount of timelines with slight to huge variations. Perhaps it is not possible to travel "back" in time in our own "thread." But if we could "cross threads" so to speak, the possibilities would be almost endless.

All pure imagination by the way. There's no science to back any of this up. But hey ...

Look at our history...if you go back a couple hundred years, people at the time would have thought motorized cars, computers, cell phones, etc were impossible, heck just look at the MAJOR progress within the past 50 yrs!!


Point is, we are in NO position to speculate about whats possible in the future.

Speculate? Sure we are free to speculate. We can speculate about anything.

Know? No. There is no way we can know what science and technology will be like in 500 years. Personally, I suspect that unless we have a major change in behavior, we'll be a lot closer to sticks and stones than time travel.

Yes, I should have worded my post in a different way, you are right about speculation.


What I find interesting about all those older 'this is what the future will be like' predictions from the 50s, 60s and 70s, they were not actually wrong about most of them, the only factor they didnt take into consideration back then, was if the govt/powers that be, would allow the public to be 'privy' to their existence.


They just assumed, the general public would have access to all these great new inventions and technology.

Post WWII most people still had faith in government and social institutions. Watergate and the counter-culture pretty much ended that.
