Ok so if there are an infinite amount of different universes to the one we live in right now, then there are an infinite amount of possibilities.

Meaning that your life has multiple different scenarios happening right now. So doesnâEUTMt that mean the life you live now has only one possibility because of the other infinite amount of universes are already taking up the other possible situations and we just donâEUTMt know what will happen in ours.

If all of this is true then technically time travel should be possible because you are only skipping forward and backwards through the 1/infinite situations/possibilities that has to have happened already. All you would need to do is speed up or slow down time which you can thanks to gravity and the fabric of space/time.

No, we don't have the Delorean.

I hope one of me is happy.

I had this discussion to many times in the past

Yes, it is possible, but it would require a fuckton of energy

There is nothing in the laws of physics that prevents time travel. But there is no way to achieve such travel at the same time. It is interesting.

Maybe so, but can you pause time?

I could think of several ways you could do that

If you could build a suit or energy field that could withstand ungodly amounts of gravity, you could create a gravity well so intense that it freezes time in it's tracks, of course that would condense everything within several light years into a wad of mass the size of a dime

You could send something into slipspace, although since slipspace is only hypothetical it might not even exist, and even if it was real, the fabric of witch slipspace is made out of an energy that our minds wouldn't be able to process, so the whole thing would just look like one big black void

You're assuming that there are multiple universes. You're also assuming a whole lot about the fabric of space-time itself. We simply don't know enough about the universe to say anything at this point. Although, we can confirm that traveling backwards is impossible. It would create a paradox.

Is this new to you? Steven Hawking already figured this out a while back.

You have an understanding of physics akin to that of a twelve year old.

Time travel is possible, however it would only theoretically work for going forwards in time, going backwards in time has much more radical theories

You gotta keep an open mind when it comes to physics, it's why physics is the only branch of science with an entire theoretical sub-branch

Theoretical physics, is what I'm hinting at

Dude, you should like, write a letter to Steven Hawking, and let him know what you found.

He didn't find that, he just put it in his own words

That basic theory has been around for a while

That's the reason I love physics. I only wish I had a mathematical mind, so I could actually participate in it. Still, "what if" questions are ENDLESSLY fun.

I participate in it in my own way. I read up on as many theories, I watch science and discovery channel documentaries, I absorb as much knowledge as I can about how the universe works and how it might work, and I form my own theories.

I never even consider confronting a theoretical physicist with any of my theories though, it'd be like a 4 year old finger painter trying to teach something about art to Leonardo De'Vinci

Well any kind of quantum travel would require enormous amounts of energy, take Bardock for example, Friezas planet killer sent him back in time it turns out. Totally logical lol.

also, new theory.

Well, I already mentioned that it would take a cosmic amount of energy to cause a fluctuation in the fabric of time space

also, new theory.

Artificially created worm holes could be used to go between 2 points of time, and if a super advanced alien could conjure up the energy to do that, then it'd be quite easy

As long as the knowledge of said energy came hand in hand with knowledge of controlling said energy, and also knowledge of creating said wormhole.

Talk of multiple universes and time travel with no relevant proof.

Sounds legit to me.

It's theoretical for a reason, man

Read as much as you can about it, all of it is based off what we know, and logic

If you don't understand, well, it's simple. You just aren't smart enough.
