What if...

Hello there,

 

I was wondering, if someone came here and posted something like this and left, what would be our reaction:

 

"Ok, here I am, just like you asked. Posting on this forum all the way back in 2014. Is this proof enough to you?"

 

And what it meant was that someone, for example, in 2040 was in a random forum still discussing if time travel was possible or not, then comes a titor-like member from 2065 who's asked to go back to 2014 and post something here as a test.

 

I guess we would have to wait until 2040 to know the truth, right? :confused:

That would present an interesting test for people claiming to be time travelers that appear now. We could ask that they go back further in time and post a particular string of letters and numbers within this same forum.

That is assuming they have the money, resources, permission, etc.. to fire up the alleged time travel device and go do it. It could potentially take them a lot of time. (They may have to travel in the past, etc.). I'm guessing they would have a "why bother" attitude. :)

If the time traveler posted only once, there might be some responses. However, without a continuous dialogue with the original poster I would think the thread would fade away - since a message meant for people in 2040, would be meaningless to us now .

 

To change your question a bit. What if the post simply was an answer to a mathematical question given to the time traveler in 2040 ? So the post was just this; " 16 ".

 

What would your reaction be ?

The problem I see is the span of time you are dealing with. The only person that could benefit from that span of time would be a hoaxter.

 

Drop the time span down to 24 hour. Have the time traveler post something unpredictable that will occur in that 24 hour span. Now all we need is a list of unpredictable events to choose from, that a real time traveler would have no problem with.

My reaction would be,

 

"Good God. She's back!"

good point, a post like the one you mentioned would be meaningless, whereas Einstein's TT proof of simply stating something that will happen tomorrow is really the kind of proof that one needs to substantiate a claim of current TT

What is really funny is that no time travel claimant has been able to do that.

 

Now I still believe time travel is possible and does exist. But the facts show so far that time travelers don't come to internet forums.

It would be a good way to proof TT, but if travelling back produces a divergence, then you cannot predict anything properly because you don't know the outcomes of this new timeline.

 

Anyway you should be able to predict some close events that shouldn't be affected. Your TT could produce some long-term changes, but the events that not affect you directly shouldn't be altered at short-term.

Hello there,

I was wondering, if someone came here and posted something like this and left, what would be our reactionm, just like yosked. Posting on this forum all the way back in 2014. Is this proof enough to you?"

Well Nicholas I dont believe anyone would be able to do that Because (time travels) in only one direction And thats only forward Which means That if someone did anything in the past It would not show up in their future Unless they stayed there where they had done whatever they had done And waited around to check out the results of the affects; Because as i had just said, Yesterday moves forward into Today at the same rate as Today is moving forward into tomorrow Second by second, minute by minute, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year, ect.

 

Everything moves forward at the same rate of speed There for yesterday doesnt catch up to today And today doesnt catch to tomorrow and so forth Or else we would have a big mess And the only way to change today Our present time Would be to go into the future And steal from over there And bring it back to present day here, And You know how i can prove thats true, Cause when God made his Bible He started in his past and he only moved forward from his past And revealed himself gradually into the future but only as the future happened before him As he watched it from his diminsion Cause after events had already happened All he could do Was remind his followers of what had happened through visions which are like memories In other words

 

He would remind people of what he had done and so on And he never did something in the past expecting it to catchup to us and affect us humans Nor has he carried out Armagaden /Tribulations Cause therewouldnt be anybody there to go through it Cause the present time hasnt caught up to the time ordate he has planed; Which goes to show that Even he GOD follows the same fllow that time travels in Which is only forward Even he either didnt or couldnt break the laws of nature (Of the movement or flow of Time through Space)

 

And as for the speed of light Well Its not the fastest The fastest thing in the Universe is whats already there before the light even gets there And Im sure You guys Know what that is , Its GRAVITY !!! Why Because its already everywhere before the light even gets there where ever there is GRAVITY will already be there Hee hee hee I could tell You guys So much more But i would blow Your minds Oh and yes Time travel has already been done 100+years ago And a time traveler did show up And he only spoke to a like minded person that he could trust And one more thing; From an experiment that was done with the machine it was determined That the time Machine Creats GOD

Not necessarily true. One example: http://timetravelphilosophy.net/topics/relativity/

 

Everything moves forward at the same rate of speed There for yesterday doesnt catch up to today And today doesnt catch

That is only if you assume time is linear.

All right let me see if I get the OP straight. Someone comes here and says they are in the year 2014, would I believe them? To be honest probably not, would I have questions for them probably not, I was just there myself four months ago. Now if someone came here and said they were in the year 2040 would they peak my interest, whether I believed it was true or not. Definitely, I would have questions for them that I would want to know about. For example, what advances were made in medicine. What advances were made in technology. Did the world leaders finally get their acts together? All right we have been waiting for centuries for the last one and it still hasn't happened but I would still be curious to know what shape the world is in. So, yes I would be curious if someone said they were in the future, whether it was true or not. I just would want to know what they see there, even if its something they are making up. Who knows maybe some of the things they talk about could come to pass.

It might be best to think of it very skeptically. First we must make experiments and logic cycles so we get the best assurance that he/she is indeed a time traveler. I suggest the one I posted earlier regarding time capsules.

 

Step One. Make a time capsule with a blank paper inside and hide it in a place that is impossible to find unless revealed by the one who made the time capsule.

 

Step Two. Reveal the time capsule's location in 2040 (or in the future, however you want and whenever) and make them write something on it a day after you have hidden the time capsule.

 

Step Three. Take out the time capsule the day after you reveal to them the location and see if there is something written.

 

Step Four. Be amazed...
