  1. Interesting conversation I just had on reincarnation that I thought you guys might find a bit interesting. The conversation ran along the lines of religious but their theory was interesting enough for me to mention it. When God (or what ever higher being you have faith in) created mankind, there was x amount of souls that were created in the first initial beings. As each one dies, their soul returns into the world in a different body. The reason being is there are certain levels of understanding and knowledge that must be learned before they can final get into heaven (or what ever after life you believe in). This is why some people have 'talent'. The talent is something they did in another life that carried over into the new life or certain types of knowledge (never could figure out how it is I know how to build a boat when I never learned to do so). My question then was how could that be possible when there were only so many men and women in the world in the beginning and there are over that many in the world now.... the response, look into the eyes of those who do evil, not everyone has a soul. So what is your response about that?

  2. I talked at a early age and had a higher vocabulary then most kids my age. I also began to read before 1st grade, but that could be from my parents teaching me and not so much my mental capacity. I can tell you this.... my long term memory is very acute but my short term memory is pretty bad. Someone once suggested I may have the beginnings of Alzheimers. I think that it is just the way my brain works. I do have a slight speech impediment also because my brain works faster then my mouth. LOL The doctor told my mom when I was a kid I had to learn to remember what I was thinking before I speak so that I could complete my sentences and words but my brain can not slow down. Still have a problem to this day with it, but I learned to work with it. I think that might be why my short term memory is so bad.

  3. Over my lifetime (of 30 or-so-years), there has been a change of weather patterns in the UK. When I was a child, the winters used to be harsh and would begin early November with heavy snowfall and the snow would remain until early mid March. In the past 2 years of "winter" in my hometown, there has been literally 3-5 days of snow. Where has the cold winter temperatures gone?I'm no expert and do not know if weather patterns should be fairly consistent, year after year.

     

    You're welcome.

    I'm a bit at a loss as to how weather changes could be related to this. Weather changes are constant throughout time. Call it growing pains if you will. The weather can never be the same year after year because there are so many other variables involved.

     

     

  4. OK an example, lets see.... what would have become of the Americas and their indigenous peoples if the settlers had never came? They were less technologically advanced (though there is no denying they did have technological advancements of their own) as we are today, or would there have been a completely different advancement from those of the Europeans that brought guns and horses here? Is that a good enough example or direction to go?

     

     

  5. What I should have said is we have lot more to learn about eg research on memories that we could benefit from especially in regards to memory loss (Alzheimer's). I have not doubt to the creditability and have complete agreement that we begin to retain memory, as a fetus. I think you are fortunate to have met a doctor that provided more insight into this research. Perhaps you can provide some sort of link to his research or maybe he was relaying research conducted by others? I have tried to locate research that deals with long-term memory, thus far, only found short-term memory. Today, thanks to you, I have started a new search and found links to research from the Society for Research in Child Development. I am specifically looking for some research by researchers from the Netherlands because of their research mentioned in Scientific American, a Division of Nature America, Inc.

     

    Now, back to the subject on time travel and memories, I was pondering the idea about the ability to travel back in time based on memories from childhood. I think, when we are very young before our language develops, we base our memories more in glimpses of images recalled. Still maybe this could be enough information to travel back in time? @Ceolaric because time travel is just an idea at this point, who knows maybe in the future we could go back in a time based in our life based on a image in our memory?

    I don't know much about the fetus portion of it, but a child would not recognize its mother or learn speech or any other functions if they did not retain memory. It is the recall memory that fades, but you always have it and it can be brought back out. I remember things from when I was and infant. I don't remember my birth or anything that God, but I do have early memories back as an infant that I confirmed with my parents.

  6. @Darby, there are times when a parallel line can be 'knocked' to the side and cross the line it is parallel to. This momentary connection is what I am referring to. Even in the beginning of an event can be the cross parallel (such as the moment of birth in a alternative dimension), they were one line then split into multiple lines that run along side one another parallel, but there was a moment when they were interconnected whether 'bumping' into one another or being one and the same line at one moment in time.

  7. I doubt that that would actually be possible since you only start to retain memories from around 5 years of age. And I doubt that you would still remember much from that point in time.

    Wrong, you store memories from the moment of birth. That is how you learn speech, facial recognition, vocal recognition, scent recognition, etc... You are only able (for most) to RECALL memories from age 5. I remember stuff from when I was 2. And I have reoccurring nightmares from when I was in a crib.

     

     

  8. Very informative but hoke. Thought you guys might like it. This guy talks about using the mind as a time machine using the theories of relativity and physics. Makes a lot of sense in a way because our minds are in a lot of ways a time capsule... storing information about the world around us from the day we are born to the day we die.

  9. I think this is better phrased as, "There are a number of unverifiable cases on record in which adults claim that as a child they experienced..."

    Well here is a question to muse over, why is it that children seem to see these occurrences more so then adults?

     

    Two possibilities come to mind for me.... Children are not afraid to speak about such things, but as adults we are afraid of the rubber rooms. And Children may be more in tune to such events whereas adults choose to (or maybe we are conditioned to) ignore the possibility of the event occurring. So we write it off as a hallucination or a day dream.

     

     

  10. Well, of course if you cancelled the Roman Empire nothing would change. The past 2,000 years of the development of Europe, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and the Americas would be as we know it. Rome had zero influence on our history. <Head slap>

    ;)

     

    Seriously, if the Roman Empire never existed you would not be asking about the effects on history if the Roman Empire never existed; nor would you be musing about the "original time line". If it never existed there is nothing to cancel. Memories are recollections of the past. If something never existed in the past you will not wonder about it.

     

    Here's the real problem with this sort of scenario. Think about it and try to answer the questions for yourself rather than rely on my assessment:

     

    1. Fred Dokes is a major player in history as you know it.

     

    2. You don't like what Fred Dokes did 1,000 years ago.

     

    3. You time travel to the past to fix Fred Dokes errors.

     

    Question 1: If you fixed Fred Dokes' errors, which occurred 1,000 years ago, how did you know about Fred Dokes errors in the first place?

     

    Question 2: If Fred Dokes' errors were fixed 1,000 years ago what motivated you to time travel to his era and change history?

     

    Question 3: If Fred Dokes' errors were fixed 1,000 years ago and you do not time travel to his era what physical agency intervened to affect the change in history?

     

    This is not a faux paradox. It is a real paradox, assuming the scenario as you have phrased your questions. How does one change the past, live in the present, remember the past as it was before it was changed, know that the past has been changed to the situation that they desire yet decide to travel to the past and change it?

     

    You might respond that you don't like the past as it is presented therefore you time travel to the past to change it. The problem is that it is the past. Whatever happened in the past is how you will recall the past...the change had already happened 1,000 years before you were born.

     

    There's no easy way of getting around this conundrum.

    Well it is a hypothetical question musing on the theoretical possibilities and consequences of time travel and changes that can be enacted. For instance, if Rome had not existed then Jesus may not have been crucified, or lived to be crucified. Gangis Khan would never have been influenced by the Roman Empire, so would his people have advanced as they had done during that time or would they have taken longer to catch up? The Roman Empire influenced more then you think by the way, but they were just an example. The question implied to any point in history. To speculate the possibilities of what could happen if a single event were to have been changed. If Hitler never made it to power. Attila The Hun never attacked China. Americus Vespucci never put the Americas on the world map.... you get my drift. Has nothing to do with whether we would know about it or not, but what would occur and whether the time traveler who exacted the change would know about it or not.
