Eleventh Topic: Time Travel?

Is it possible to travel through time?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a time traveller? Living moments in history that others read about, being witness to world changing events. We are one of the only the species on this planet that keeps of track of time, it seems a bit absurd to be able control time. Is it really that impossible?

Some people believe that there is evidence of time travellers. There are some photos on the internet that are considered proof of time travel. Now is it really that strange of an idea? I think not, eventually we will probably figure out a way to travel through time. And if that ever happens the time we are currently living in could be modified or changed, our past could small differences that people may not take notice of.

One question, do you remember a book from our childhood about a family of bears?

You tell me in the comments, was the title ¨The Bernstein Bears¨ or ¨The Bernstain Bears¨ ……..

  1. Physicality holds the essence of time. Spirituality has no time. Time travel then is a practice of going to places as a result of cause and effect.
    The whole interplay of our world is nothing more than this interplay. Spiritually we can arrive any place at any time.
    Of course, these words mean nothing unless we’ve experienced it. Being multidimensional travelers, that is.

  2. Is it possible to travel through time?

    If you were to think of this more creatively without considering any of the limitations of the real world, may be. You may be able to think of something, but with our current scientific knowledge, no. We know too little about time to be able to control it in the way of time travel.

    Reading this reminded me a lot of “Interstellar” by Christopher Nolan.

    *** There will be spoiler for the movie, so read at your own discretion from here on out. ***

    Nolan tackled the concept of time travel and the theory of relativity, not in the traditional sense but in a more scientific but at the same time creative approach. There was an advanced race that had the power to represent time within the physical dimension. They had the power to see what happened in the past. But in the movie it was made clear that the past cannot be changed, if it were the case then the present would not exist as it is.

    It was only the future that could be affected through time and gravity manipulation. Now why do I compare this blog post to Interstellar?

    I do so because time travel is a tricky topic, one with several possibilities of infinitely messing up the entire timeline. Now let’s say if people got the power to change the past somehow, imagine how much it would affect the present. Some of the technology we have that we use in our daily lives, some technology vital to our lives (both medically and work wise), may not exist.

    You yourself could become a paradox by trying to change the past. Let’s not forget about how bad the effects can be if someone with “tainted” intentions were to go back and change things. People can be very deceptive creatures, there is no way to tell when someone has noble intentions or not for sure.

    Plus personally, I would be opposed to time travel. It opens that black box humans should never have access to. If people don’t like something, they could go back and change it. But if it is an experience that is meant to teach something valuable, none of it will be learnt if things could just be “reset”. Stumbling, making mistakes, going through bad times and learning is all a part of life. If we do ever invent time travel, mistakes may easily be overwritten, clearly destroying the concept of learning from mistakes.

    Some things are better left off as a mystery and up to our imagination :).

    By the way, to answer your question. The name of the show/book was: The Berenstain bears.

    1. I have not seen “Interstellar” by Christopher Nolan, and luckily I’ve never been affected by spoilers. I will definitely be adding that film to my watch list for this weekend.

      You are correct that time travel is a very tricky topic. The idea that the time line can be changed by the smallest disruption is a scary thought. I like how you thought about the importance of learning from out mistakes and the affects that time travel could have on it. Unfortunately though as in life there is always the good and the bad if time travel ever exists in the future there will be people with “tainted” intentions trying change things.

      The crazy thing is if time travel ever exists in any point of the future, there could be time travelers in this moment playing with our time line.

      Below a quote that I read the other day, that got me thinking about the importance of time:

      “Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. an alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.”

      ― Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper
