a theory on time travel
I don't know if this is obvious, but there is many different versions of measuring time.

we all know the calendar and time we are using now.

I propose that the way you measure time, is what is determining your location in time

and then I propose from that, that the way you define time, becomes your position in time, and then that is your location. from which you have positioned yourself.

so essentially, measuring time, is your version of a time travel machine.

of course it is more complex than this, but this is the general principle.


in theory, if you are able to locate and define your exact position in time, you should also match every event and moment within that time space, as merely a piece of data.

you could treat this data, as you would treat any data, it could be stored, saved, or retrieved, or changed....

Re: a theory on time travel
if we look at everything as data, we can measure time according to data principles.

for example, a piece of music or a song, would be a piece of data, if you play this song over and over, that would be a form of measuring time, by a song. the song will be the same each time, so if you have a 3 minute song, you would essentially have a piece of data 3 minutes long which you know all it's attributes, and it goes for 3 minutes. this isn't really time travel but it is time travel in the form of sound, because you can repeat the same sound data over and over and its the same, you also know its past and future within that 3 minutes. i propose that the sound of the song is actually a data structure which positions itself in time, and that it is a form of time keeping.

you can extend this to movies, which include pictures....
same thing with a movie, it's essentially a data stream which you have measured against time. this piece of data has a story in it, characters, and a beginning and end, this is essentially a simulation of a event, but only through visual and sound sensations...

the thing with this pattern is, you should be able to extend beyond sound and visual stimulation....

do you see where i am going with this...

Re: a theory on time travel
lets look at something like a play, something that is done on a stage, it is a live act, with scenery, script, and a plot.

the thing with a play is it is very calculated, the people i the play know the story, they know what is going to happen, the entire event is planned in detail, the play may go for an hour or so as a presentation.

this is essentially an attempt to reproduce a movie, but in real life action. you could see this play as a time piece. if you were a character in the play and you did this play over and over again for an audience, it would be similar to living the same day over and over, sort of like being in a timeloop.

what they play has done is created a virtual space where an event happens, so it is measuring itself against time, as a time piece of it's own.

with a play though because of all the emotions and things that are artificially created in this play, it starts to simulate have we are living life, and we see the play as fake, an act....but the poit of the play is to make you believe for a while that it is real....

what I propose is that it is already real in it's own way, and that it is a certain function of measuring time. this fuction does not have the power to influence things outside itself, for example it cannot influence events going on outside the play at the same time....

but in a way it does control the audience, it makes the audience watch it and experience it, so it has already affected things outside it's sphere of influence in it's own time. this is ome of what makes it real....

Re: a theory on time travel
where I am going with this is you should extend this idea of time measurement, through data, to things beyond music, movies, or plays...

you should not distinguish between real life events, and things like plays, and start to understand them all as time keeping pieces made up of data.

for example, if you think of your day so far, what would happen if you decided that for the next 12 hours, you were going to treat that day as a data stream, in the same way you would treat a song, movie, or play.

in other words your entire 12 hours is a performance directed by you, in 'time'.

when the 12 hours is finished, you could look back on your recording of the day, visual, sound, or just in your memory, and you would have that day as 'history'

but the difference here is not to see this day as 'history' but to see it as a piece of data that you made.

in theory if you could turn back the clock and go back to the beginning of this day, and do the exact same things again, it would be similar to re-listening to a song or a movie. but the difference here is it is your entire day.

the problem here comes with, how do you record the events of your entire day, in a way which they can be played back like a song or movie.

we see time as relentlessly going forward, one day after the next, there is no 'moving back' in time.

but the point here there is actually a moving back in some ways does happen, just as in memory, when you replay data on your computer.

but in order to reverse the entire date on your calendar back to say yesterday, that would require conquering the entire calendar system that we have in place....in order to move through that calendar system backwards or forwards to specific dates, would require a very powerful device.

I believe this device, if it was created, would merely be an advance time keeping device, and that device would allow you to move backwards and forwards through the calendar.

Re: a theory on time travel
actually i will go a step further....

I will claim right here and now, that this device actually already exists, all around us, as a present technology that we have access to already, that i fully functioning, interactive, and automatic, but we do not know how to utilize it properly for ourselves, or we don't know this technology exists, and because we don't know this technology is here, we are not using it properly.

what i seek to do is prove that this technology is here and exists, and that it can be piloted to induce time travel.

Re: a theory on time travel
be sure to get back to us when you have it figured out by bumping the thread made before this one. Which you haven't made yet...
