You can travel forwards, but not backwards

Back on the question :) Is it possible to avoid the G-force taken from your body in super high speed?

Change the rules.

 

Expand upon Dmitry Itskov's 2045 objectives, and ask the question "can we construct an avatar that can endure massive g force punishment?"

 

Avatar travels through time. Survives the "bad stuff" that would kill a human being. Same tech allows humanity to initially explore the ocean depths and space. Time travel a new frontier after that? Maybe remote control. Maybe a human brain transplant. Pseudo science at best for now. :thumbsdown:

You're not familiar with the 2045 Initiative, maybe?

 

The long term agenda is a working avatar (android) containing a human brain.

 

As far as any correlation between a person's consciousness and life force, spanning any given number of years (years exceeding one's own life time), implying a result of a failed outing is assuming too many variables given a lack of any hard science behind actual time travel. Who's to say time is a straight road of 'things happening' as opposed to following a configuration mimicking a solar system. The distance between a point in, say, 1965 and 2250 isn't measured in time (as we define it) but by distance (in a yet-to-be established quantity).

 

Time travel is fantastical pseudo-science with the hard rules yet to be written.

An android, containing a human brain will still contain a human brain, that can be damaged by the G-force and still will have to find a way for the G-force not to damage it.

 

I don't think, that time travel is entirely a pseudo science. There are simply technical problems, that are not solved yet. Sooner or later, they will be solved for sure.

That's like saying a submarine is full of dead people because it's exposed to the high pressure at its depth. The point of this hypothetical avatar is to safeguard the brain from damage and external pressures.

 

The concept is the avatar of a technology currently nonexistent hence hypothetical

There is a difference between external pressure, and acceleration G-force. I suppose, that you are not familiar with the difference.

 

Acceleration G-force appears only when you travel with a high speed, and it acts on every object and every atom inside the moving thing. In rockets astronauts have had experiences when they can't lift their hand up due to the acceleration G-force. A machine, that will move lets say 1000 times faster, than the modern rockets, will make a G-force, that will be unbearable and will smash the people inside.

Here is one theory that allows backwards time travel:

[ATTACH=full]350[/ATTACH]

That one always gives me a headache because the explanation of it loops just as much as the theory. LMAO

 

I am not sure if it really works. What is ghost time travel?

It is as it says. You are there able to observe but unable to enact change. You are pretty much a ghost. It is basically a transference of the mind through the past, but not the body, so that you can view the events of the past but it is like watching a 3D movie for you. Things pass right through you as if you are not there and you are unable to move things or be heard.

G forces result from acceleration, not velocity. Fighter pilots and astronauts (during blast-off and re-entry) wear "g-suits" that are designed to keep blood from draining away from the brain during high g-forces. They are basically whole body pressure bandages.

 

The primary problem with the 2045 initiative is in the type of computer to be used. I agree with Penrose in the hypothesis that digital AI will not work. Only when at least part of the computer is quantum can sentience be achieved.

 

The problem with the Turing model for AI is that it is based on a human imitating a computer, not a computer imitating a human. Our brain is not binary. It does not compute in a linear model. It is probably not purely quantum, since we may try multiple "computations" to reach a solution. Notably, one of the characteristics of geniuses, notably those with Asperger's, is that complex problems are often solved without intermediate steps.

Have you ever flown in a commercial Jet? I especially enjoy 727s. When the jet is taking off or makes a sudden turn you feel pressed into the seat, or pushed to one side. But when you are traveling smoothly at a constant speed you feel normal. G forces come from acceleration, not velocity. Turning involves acceleration, radial acceleration. Fighter jets (and rockets) can accelerate and turn rapidly, resulting in the need for "g-suits".

Unfortunately you really don't want a vehicle that travels at the speed of light. Going from "here" to "there" wouldn't be a five minute trip to 50 years in the future. It would be an instantaneous trip from the present to the infinitely distant future. In other words, your trip terminates at the end of time (whatever that is). Equally bad is the fact that spacetime at the speed of light, from your perspective, folds up into a point (actually a singularity) directly in from of you. So you will make contact at the speed of light with a point particle containing all the mass of the universe. Ouch! Even if you could survive that you can't navigate to any particular place...the entire universe is a point. Finding the intersection of 3rd and 33rd in Some City on Whatever Planet would be somewhat problematic.

I think this explanation is a limit state to an equation that is merely an approximation of the actual physics involved, for photons do not slam headward into a point containing all mass in the universe.

 

A big problem when you travel fast is the G force. Human can't survive any possible G-force. Can this problem be solved?

the only problems encountered with G forces are when thee is acceleration. It's not the speed of light that hurts, just how fast we approach it.
