  1. lol point taken! It's a matter of perception the way I see it. For example, is the rainbow real? Well, we can't see it most of the time, but when it rains it's visible. The fact is the human eye only perceives and extremely limited portion of "reality" what means we are blind to everything else. The same with alternate realities?
  2. A few years ago I saw the movie butterfly effect and it was really fascinating, but disconcerting at the same time. After all, what is the butterfly effect? Something we do in the past can have huge consequences in the future? Is this something real or just the product of our imagination?
  3. Fascinating that this was posted 15 years ago (???) and no one commented... In fact, the title is catchy and the contents are interesting, but I beg to disagree with it. I don't think that free will is an illusion, but at the same time I do agree that most people don't have free will and just march mechanically in the existence. "For a time traveller, the distinctions between past, present and future disappear, so that the future may be fixed and unchangeable. If this is the case, free will is gone too, not only for the time traveller, but also for all the other inhabitants of his or her past. " When past, present and future disappear it's when we achieve a superior knowledge so that's when we in fact have free will.
  4. I feel that the same way that our scientists are in the lab studying cells and other things there might be advanced people, let's call them from the future, that come to our world to study us. I'd love that I could spot them and chat with them, I'd love to know what they know.
  5. I am not a scientist, but I do recognize that science has made amazing advances and allowed us to reach another level of knowledge. The issue for me with the situation you describe Darby is that we would jump of the building and crash down regardless of the existence of time, acceleration and so on, it's just a succession of events, a catalog we humans put on the succession of events.
  6. I agree that we are all time travelers aoldwoodenplank, but at the same time I don't think we would be stranded until the planet came back around. I think it's great the the forum is organized like this so that we can learn from each others experience and at the same time have some credibility while doing it because it's easy to make a claim, but to prove it true it's not so easy.
  7. I have a similar vision to yours worldmachine, people from the future just might be around us and one of two things might be happening. We might not be aware of them and see them as just another of us because they act as if they are one of us so that they don't disrupt time or we might see them as crazy. How many times have we heard the expression ahead of their time? Well, maybe there is some truth in that.
  8. I agree, it's not something we can prove or disprove because our five senses, our mind and all the science our humanity has been developing only aim to the tridimensional world and don't have the capacity to consider other realities. Also, all our efforts to explore space when eventually other worlds and other realities are right in front of our eyes, we are just unable to see them. A little like the rainbow maybe.
  9. I think that if we do have the capacity to time travel we are fully aware of it and of the consequences it might carry. I don't know if this is something most people have the capacity to understand, but at the same time I don't think anyone would time travel just to win the lottery or to achieve material gains, it's a matter of accessing true knowledge.
  10. For me there is no more fascinating concept than time, but if we think of it can we really conclude that is exists? I mean, we see the succession of events that we catalog by hours, days, months and years, but at the same time what is time? Also, given the existence of time or succession of events, how can we jump between them?
