I said I would give time travel further Living Tired consideration in my paper on time truly. My theory of Time dealt with time dimensions and how our concept of time is different from the reality of time. This true-time includes the motions that we measure with time and my belief that the fourth dimension can actually be divided into the 4th,5th, 6th, and 7th dimensions of time. I had to consider the possibility of time travel in that discussion, but I never made a formal claim. I have now formulated a hypothesis based on what I believe our concept of time travel relates to true-time (All 4-time dimensions).
It is tempting to believe that time travel is somehow possible, and I myself would be lying if I said that I wished there was no such possibility of time travel. The thought is far too tempting to want to believe anything else to the contrary. After giving it much thought, I am 99.9% sure that time travel is impossible, and I base this on the following argument.
To fully grasp this hypothesis, I must first describe how the human race perceives time. This perception has lead to the belief that time travel should or could be possible. I use the analogy of the digital recorder that is so popular with Direct Television or Tivo. This technology simply digitally records a program and then allows you to access that information at any time. You can rewind during the show, fast forward up to a point, or save it to watch at another time. When we eventually watch our show, we are, in a sense,
traveling back in time. That is to say that a past event, the show, has been recorded and can then be played back later. This allows your mind to experience a segment of time that has already occurred. This is very much the same as how our brain works. The past is nothing more than a collection of our memories. Every event that we have experienced up until the present is stored in our brain whether we can remember it or not. This is the digital recording. Our brain has taken in information and saved it for later use. The future is nothing more than
our ability to conceive of future events. I wonder what studies in the area of psychology have been done on this subject. I would have to believe that our past allows our brain to conceive of a future. We know that events have happened, so it is reasonable to assume that we can use the creative side of our brain to try and formulate what could happen in the future. This is slightly different from making plans. A person can plan to go to dinner on Saturday with a friend. This is simply a matter of our ability to conceive that another.
Saturday will come because we have had reoccurring Saturdays in the past. So, we know that eventually, it will be Saturday again. So, we plan to have dinner on that day at some predetermined time. We then commit that appointment to memory so that we can make a date. We can’t exactly count this as foretelling the future because sometimes we forget the plans we make. By making plans, we increase the likelihood that the event will take place.
I guess this leaves us with two ways our brain looks at the future. There is the creative future, where we may dream about or conceive of what events we would like to come about; and there is the Planned future, where we make a plan, commit it to memory, and try to make sure we are there to see the outcome of that future event.
This is how we conceive of our reality. We are born, and our brain begins taking in all sorts of information. We commit this to memory for later use. I would assume that memory is merely a remanence of our survival instinct. It used to be that our parents would teach us the things we needed to survive. We also committed as much as we could to memory. If we didn’t then, we simply died. Our parents would show us that leopards are bad. If we don’t
have the ability to commit things to memory, we might try to pet the leopard later and get eaten. That isn’t good. To survive, we had to rely on our memory to tell what we should or should not do based upon the situation presented to us. Fast forward thousands of years, and we come to a point in our history where our standard of living has removed us from those leopard-like situations. Now we are faced with a new challenge,
surviving in a technological and hectic world. The new lessons are, work to get paid so we can eat and have a home. If you do not do these things, then you end up homeless, starve, and die. A new set of survival information has to be committed to memory. No other species has come as far as we have. They still have to rely on the good old leopard method or True Primal survival instincts.
