A Discussion in the following Thread: http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=216792 made me decide to open up this one to discuss the issue. Seeing as the above thread is Star Trek related, i don't want the thread being closed down due to the topic being changed to something that doesn't relate to Star Trek. Anyhow, do you think Timetravel is possible? - If so, explain why you think it is, and likewise, if you don't think it is, then again, explain your reasons for thinking so. I have somewhat given my reasons in the other thread but for those of you that don't wish to go and have a look:

SupaStarAshI personally do not believe (much like the Vulcans) that time travel is possible. Think about it, if time travel was possible, then as soon as people from the future go into the past, that would have then changed time. Them being there has changed time, thus, they wouldn't arrive in the past due to them not having existed in the future! Makes sense? Thought not! Example: If Person A lives in say the year 3000 (where they may have time travel) and some relatives of Person A live in the year 2500, (say they are called person B & C), if Person A went into the past, and altered history, Persons B & C could (in theory) not meet because of a simple twist in time, of which was caused by Person A, thus Person A wouldn't exist and his future would not exist, either. Thus, Person A would have never tried to go into the past.

If you can work that out, good job, if not, well... sorry for the confusion.

Nah - I very much doubt it's possible.

If it was - then what would happen to people's memories? Could they be altered as well? Without the person realising?

Time is closely related to consciousness, right? Think about sleeping for example. I just don't see how you could travel time without it having to be a mind trick of some sort... :uhm:

Is it possible? It's already happened! Clearly you don't watch enough Superman :cort:

yeah, I do not think it's possible.

Not possible.

What happened in the past is set in stone, if you were to somehow go back in time, the future would not be the same, no matter how careful you try to be. What happens, i thinkm is that if history is altered in any way, it creates another dimension with new possiblilites and histories.

Not possible, you can not control time, what happend lays in the past and what yet has to come lays in the future. You can't time travel.

It just doesn't make sense: if you were to go back in time to prevent something from happening (or instead make simething happen) then it already would never have happend in "your starting time" to begin with.

If you would travel to the future there then every single action that happen between the moment you left ("now") and your destination time would affect the future. There is no way that the future knows what I did in the past, all these different actions could leed to an endless number of different futures.

time travel isnt possible and it whouldnt matter if u went back in time beacuse that whould mean that time already passed when u went back and so nothing whould change unless you didnt go back its impossible to change the past but its possible to change the future

Ever hear of the Philidelphia experiment? I'll be the 1st one to argue that it may be possible. I like to believe that it's possible, and prehaps it was already done. Maybe the computer is from the future and our present.... Maybe we won the war against the germans only because we once lost it in a another time demension..It may be possible, I would like this thread to go on..so I argue that it may be possible,

I do believe its possible, only not yet... We've proven that we could fly too, and that was "impossible" a hundred years ago.

And as for changing time, you don't know the laws of time, so its only pure speculation.
