Sounds like he is predicting an outcome based on measurements, not actually doing "time travel."

Rant warning: "Time travel" is a dumb phrase because it's time and space travel combined. You know, because our Earth is spinning at roughly 1,200 km/hour while flying aroud the sun at about 11,000 km/hr. Our solar system is moving at about 540,000 kn/hour in the Milky Way which is also hurtling through space at around 2 million km/hour. So if you want to travel back in time to somewhere on Earth, you have to know where in space it was back then which is just about impossible.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: KingKauff: This thread should run backwards

It is moving backwards. Or maybe I'm moving backwards through time and the thread is moving forward? Eh, it's all relative.


I'll update my family hedgerow.

FTFA:  If this proves true in our 'classical' world, it would mean that what we're doing now has been influenced by the decision made by a future version of us.

Thus proving the Calvinists right.  If your life is hard, it's because you deserved a hard life.

Time is relative. You can travel forward in time relative to the people on Earth as you get closer and closer to the speed of light. Time will also slow down for you if you stand next to a really big object (relative to others who are not). The relativity of time is one of the reasons why it is so hard to understand the subject.

I forgot where I heard this one (I don't pretend to be any sort of physicist) is that there since is no "now", as everything is either the past or the near future. This essentially means that the past, present and future all exist together and there is no separation.

yakmans_dad: DubtodaIll: This provides just as much evidence that humans possess the ability to consciously affect matter as it does for time travel.

There should be be a mathematical description of paying attention to, decisions, observations, etc.

What happens if two people examine a particle simultaneously?

Why does the corner of the kitchen counter by the coffee machine smell like nutmeg?


Well, quantum uncertainty prevents two people from measuring the same property of a system at the same time. Whichever one makes the observation first changes the result for the second.

Yes, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Measurement_in_quantum_mechanics . In order to measure something quantum you either have to bounce something off of it like a photon which would change it's state. Or you could bounce it off of something else in a detector which would also change it's state. There's more than one way to measure a system but each way alters the thing you're observing.

I understand what you mean, since that statement makes the most intuitive sense. But from a physics view point, there is no "now" since your now is different from someone elses now relative to space and speed; what might be now for you might be 200 years into the future or past for someone on the other side of the galaxy. It's hard to explain but heres a video on it.

FTAThe quantum state was detected by putting a circuit inside a microwave box.
A few microwave photons - or particles of light - were sent into the box, where their quantum fields interacted with the circuit.
When the photons exited the box they had information about the quantum system.

 This is not a dream... not a dream. We are using your brain's electrical system as a receiver. We are unable to transmit through conscious neural interference. You are receiving this broadcast as a dream. We are transmitting from the year one, nine, nine, nine. You are receiving this broadcast in order to alter the events you are seeing. Our technology has not developed a transmitter strong enough to reach your conscious state of awareness, but this is not a dream. You are seeing what is actually occurring for the purpose of causality violation.

You cannot travel backwards.  Just because you are not facing the direction you are traveling does not make it backwards.  You can only move forwards.  Such is time.

buttery_shame_cave: honestly, the really tough part about time travel will be sorting out the proper grammar, especially when you've run into yourself.


I'm going with it. Marty and Doc  never had have had brought the time machine to 2015. That means 2015 Biff  could also not had have had brought the Almanac to 1955 Biff. Therefore, the timeline in which 1955 Biff gets the Almanac is also the timeline in which 1955 Biff never gets the Almanac and not just never gets:  never have, never hasn't, never had have hasn't.
