Time Traveling Theory?

Topic: Write letter to future self
June 16, 2019 / By Fedelma
Question: Ok so if I were to sit down right now (March 24) and write a letter to my self saying "HI please deliver to me March 23rd 2010". And then had that letter put in a chest and pass it down generations and generations and have special instructions to send it back in time once time traveling is possible wouldn't I have gotten that letter yesterday?

dude tath is like such an amazing idea but you gotta think what if what if your next generation is a gay male your generation would stop their what if your families generation waw killed of in some crazy future war what if we really all do die in 2012 what if your family dies on the the big earthquake what if your letter gets damged so you will you will have to make sure none this happens

Except Time Travel to the Past is not possible if Free Will Exists. ====> You cannot send a letter back. Another possivility is that it requires Quantum Leaps that prevent the letter to be sent to this time. A third possibility is you got the letter in a parallel universe. Time Travel into the future is possible. If Free Will exists, then time travel into the past is not possible. Two Time Machines for travel into the future: Type 1 Build a space ship capable of near light speed. Put it into a long orbit like a comet that returns to earth every 100 years. Get in the ship and blast off. When you return you will have aged a few years and be 100 years into the earth's future. Type 2 Build a space station in near orbit to a Black Hole. As long as you are in the space station you age very slowly. When you leave you could be 100s of years in the future. Special and General Relativity makes either of these possible. The science is solid, the engineering will take some work. Time Travel into the past: The possibility of travel to the past hinges on: Does Free Will exist? If we have Free Will then we can change the past and thus the present. The Law of Causality does not allow this. All time travel paradoxes arise from the fact that causality does not allow us to change the present. But, IF everything is fixed and we can’t change it, then some of us, at least, could be time travelers caught in a loop stretching enough years to cover a life time or more maybe 1000s of years. Time Travel need only involve “quantum leaps” that prevent us from meeting ourselves and we live the same lives over and over with no memory of the last time we did it. Something like Joe Haldeman’s “The Accidental Time Machine” would work. Modern Theoretical Physics offers another way out of the Time Travel to the Past Paradox trap. If there are an infinite number of parallel universes, we can travel back, violate causality and snap to a different universe that results from us changing the past. I.e.: Go ahead and kill your father. You snap to a universe where your father ain’t your father, but your father, he don’t know. Or, maybe he does and he does not care. Or, your mother was raped. Or, ......... See: “Closed Timelike Curves in Asymmetrically Warped Brane Universes,” Pas, Pakvasa, & Weiler http://science-junkie.group.stumbleupon.... If we live in a warped brane universe then Space-Time MIGHT be folded over itself like a sheet of paper. If so, our past or future is next to us. We could time travel by crossing the gap. Note: We cannot choose the time we travel to, only the time(s) next to us.

yes, you would have, unless the people in the future thought it was a bad idea and wouldn't do it, thinking it might disrupt the time space continuum, or you died before there was time traveling. and by the way, i've never thought of that! that's actually pretty ingenious.

Nope because time travel thankfully is not possible. Fun to theorize about, but just not possible...

OH DEAR I SEE YOU HAVE CREATED A TEMPORAL PARADOX OH DEAR WE HERE AT THE TIME TRAVEL AGENCY IN THE FORTY-SECOND CENTURY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A WORD WITH YOU ACCORDING TO POLICY H-73-DELTA WE ARE NOW PROHIBITING ANY RECURSIVE POSSIBILITIES THAT MAY ARISE DUE TO PARADOXICAL BEHAVIOR IN THE EIGHTEENTH THROUGH TWENTY-THIRD CENTURIES IN THE FUTURE PLEASE REFRAIN FROM CAUSING SAID RECURSIVE PARADOXES OR WE WILL SHOOT YOUR GRANDFATHER THANK YOU

Originally Answered: I'm traveling on the Greyhound bus the first time what bus do i need to get on?
Get to the Bus Station ahead of time, show your ticket to an agent and ask them where the bus will be. Most bus stations are like train stations and airports. You have to wait at the right gate or track to catch the right bus. Sometimes there will be a sign board that will show the bus # (in your case #1542) and what gate the bus will be boarding. If you don't find it, always ask a station agent or even the other folks waiting for a bus. The other big thing is your transfer in Birmingham to bus #0662. Once you're on that bus, you should be okay. All those other cities that are listed are just the stops the the bus will be making on its way to St. Louis. You might have to change buses, but talk to the other passengers, I'm sure they're going at least part of the way, so you can follow them. Or ask the bus driver. Good luck on your adventure!
