Light Speet and Time Travel?
    #635888 - 05/18/02 11:50 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Light, according to einstein, is a constant. Kind of like a curve that would never end, no matter how far you went down an extreme. So if you got to 'light speed' then, at that speed, light would go at 'light speed' and you could never travel faster than light. This is how I understand it. I was wondering. If you 'could' travel faster than the speed of light, would you be time traveling or is light simply (gama) particles that have nothing to do with time. If light is just particles then how do particles travel faster than anything?
Anyone with information on time travel theories please add your two pence

"The speed of light" is not a speed at all, and light does not 'travel'. It appears to, because of the structure of space. Think of space as tilting at more of an angle the faster you go until you're looking at it directly edge-on at lightspeed- you don't see it at all. The directions space tilts is toward the "time axis." The world is sort of 2d and timeless to a light particle because its axis of motion has tilted to the point where it exactly overlaps time "forward" is forward in time, "back" backward in time, left and right in real space overlap with left-and right in 'probability space' (which, if you think about it, is a 'direction' perpendicular to time.) That's how I understand it at least, I'm not sure if I'm getting it quite right.

Time travel doesn't work. But if it did I think all the backward time travel events would create time "loops" that break off from the rest of time. Those implausible sounding scenarios where the John Connor sends a soldier back in time and the soldier impregnates his mother and becomes his father are really what would be left. Future-causes-past-causes-future and so the orignal "past" is totally cut off. All the light, then, goes in circles forever after that happens.

The timeline we're in right now could be a really large such loop.
Suppose our distant descendants, mastering time, got life going and engineered our evolution in such a way that in the distant future we (they) would inevitably become themselves (God). Our final act is to go back to the beginning of time and create the universe.

It's as good an explanation for how it got here as any other you'll hear.

If you can read this that means my time machine has worked.

If you go fast enough a 'd' turns into a 't'.
