time
    #2143514 - 11/29/03 01:56 AM (13 years, 16 days ago)

My friend and I were discussing about time, and how we define it. then based on that we were wondering about time travel in itself. we couldn't see how people think time travel is remotely possible if time is linear.

here's what we mean. when you turned on your computer, that was in the past. in order to go back to the past (if time is linear), that moment when you turned on the comp would still have to exist. you can't go to something if it doesn't exist. therefore it isn't possible. am I thinking about this correctly?

now with the one moment thing, that would be different because you would have to somehow go out of the system and come back in at another point of your choosing.

what do you think?


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

One theory is that all of reality exists at the same time but we experiance it as if viewing it through a slit that is moving across a picture.

what if you can watch yourself turning on the computer in the past, w/o having to be there physically?

but quantum mechanics has proved that sub-atomic particles are so fast that they go back in time, albiet milliseconds.

Time Travel is totally possible. Once, while in Durang, Tripping for a week, the wife and I were in a restaruant, I looked over and saw this elderly couple. For some reason, I couldn't look the man in the face. However, the woman looked exactly like my wife if she had aged 40 years or so. Not only that, her ring is what really made me feel weird. I remember feeling sick and looking away. Then after a few minutes I looked back at them and they were gone.

I can't prove it, but somehow I think I went back and looked at myself. Maybe, after 50 years of mushroom trippin, something magical is bound to happen.

Since you mentioned memory I'll offer my thoughts. My last trip was all about the golden ration imagioning possibilities or not, and I got a thought while in the golden ratio state of mind; memory is the ability to see all possibilities, it's easier to see if it happened. Go check my last few posts for more info on the subject(s(?)(?(s))wtf(?))

I think that we have cleverly confused what we consider "Time" by applying it to two entirely different concepts.

One, is what we can call "clock time". This is the temporal dimension of our universe. It is what clocks measure. In essence, it is no more than distance between events. This is almost exactly the same concept as spatial distance.

The other, "subjective time", is much harder to define. I think it may be the conscious experience of movement through the temporal dimension. It may be intimately related to the memory process.

Now, the two concepts are related, but to give them both one word for definition (and fail to clearly define the word anyway...) seems silly to me.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
