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.

Maybe so, but can you pause time?

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.

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.

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

That basic theory has been around for a while

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.

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.

If.

This is all based off of the assumption that multiple universes already exist. First off, you'd have hell trying to actually prove this, considering that it's not possible to do so at the moment.

But say there are. There are a (theoretically) infinite amount of parallel universes, one for each decisive choice that happens in a human life. We'll make this assumption for now so I can disprove it in a second. When you make a choice, that universe changes as so, however another universe is created for each of the possible variations in how that choice was made. Since the beginning of time, every choice that has ever been made has caused a branched timeline, and thus a new parallel universe, to form.

This violates conservation of energy, and conservation of mass. This is clearly a no-go. However:

Say that instead of creating a new universe after a choice, you're just simply sent to a different one. An infinite amount of parallel universes have existed since the beginning of time, and when a choice is made, you're simply sent to a convenient one. For whatever reason, we're not at all aware of this. This does not violate conservation of mass or energy, since all the matter and energy in the multiverse has and will always exist.

This would require a few things: First off, the universe would have to be of finite size, and every other universe would have to be as well. After all, it's not possible to travel an infinite distance, right? So all the universes are of finite size, and it's possible to instantaneously travel between them. But this would require information to travel faster than the speed of light (It takes light eight minutes to travel to Earth from the sun, and we don't even know how big the universe might be). So that's a no-go as well. So how can we get around the limit of information traveling faster than the speed of light?

Another dimension of space is the only semi-plausible solution I can think of. Maybe you could take this into string theory or something. I personally don't understand space with any more than 3+1 dimensions, so good luck with that.

I guess if there's a space among dimensions there would be a pause in time.
I don't think time really has a clear standing.

This is much more complicated than developing a means of traveling faster than light. If we are able to do so, it would not require the highly, highly theoretical task of jumping from universe to universe. That being said, there are probably even simpler ways of traveling through time - the most obvious being the discovery of time as an entity which can be manipulated (perhaps such as beyond the event horizon of a black hole).

So, time travel is possible within our laws by entering a black hole (?); possible outside of our laws by moving faster than light; and possible in pure imagination by crossing the multiverse boundary.

I'm sure one's perception play a part in speed of time.

That's all a bunch of theory bullshit.

Time doesn't exist. Everything after that is impossible.

If time travel becomes possible, then there will be no such thing as a universe, and nobody will actually be alive, it would just be you alone in a fake universe.

Travelling through time is too complicated an issue to put any bets on.

There is quite a lot of supporting theories for parallel universes to exist but yes they are just theories i guess, although so is gravity.

Also i don't see how conservation of energy and mass has anything to do with the other universes seeing as it has nothing to do with ours apart from being parallel and a universe.

Why would a new universe just form when a different decision is made. I'm saying what if they already exist just with different possibilities...I'm not saying they cant form but what if they already do exist and every other possible situation that could possibly happen has happened and we are left with our reality.

Not saying your wrong or anything i just find it pretty interesting to think about.
