ya but could you get the funds out of the bank and go back in time with them? so then you would be rich in the past! hummmmm Now, think about this. If i go back in time, and kill someone (i dont know), then i go back in time and stop myself from killing that person, have i made a murder? or if i went back in time and killed a guy, and then went back intime again and had to kill myself to stop what happend, am i dead? but if i killed myself in the past, then i havent been born yet. so when the timeline catches up, i will be born and go through life. without dying. riiight?

I don't know B_B, I think Citabria7GCBC and Batman need to get together. [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=134117[/url] [img]http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/biggrin2.gif[/img]

Wasn't this a Twilight Zone episode ? [whacko] Stepped-init

OK. So I give these guys $10.00 and specify a date for pickup. If I am not gone by that date I want my money back plus accrued interest. If I get picked up, cool. If I am still here then they failed on their end, for whatever reason, to provide what was offered. Right? Or is that just too logical?

say you were put in a alternate universe. if you recreate the events exactly in that universe, would it send you back to your universe?

think about this... if someone goes back and forth through time, then the timeline has already been established. so how do we know that a future timeline has not already been eastablished? so, if it were established, then cant some one come get you soon as you pay the 10 bucks? and if they dont, then sue for false advertising.

Exactly my point! The moment I put payment in the mail should be soon enough. I should disappear right at the mailbox if that is the time I specify.

That's f***ing hilarious[:D] Why didn't I think of that. The sad part is, there are people out there that will believe it.

Stepped-init Yes, they robbed a bank and then sealed themselves in glass "caskets" in a cave in the desert somewhere. When they woke, a couple of them were dead and the gold they, I think stole, was not worth anything. The last one died trying to barter gold for water.

Time is not really anything you can actually manipulate. It is just a definition of the measurement of the interval between events. Furthermore, all the evidence of the physical universe leads us to conclude that the arrow of time only points in the forward direction. Sorry Guys. Sorry about "antigravity" also. Not gonna happen either.

Didn't Ben Franklin do something like this in his will? IIRC...he left 1 pound sterling per year to 3 different cities, with instructions that they couldn't touch it for 200 years. Seems to me it came out to almost $3,000,000. Gonna have to find a link to it.

Heh heh. Nope. We have already created a temporal paradox several times right here on earth in a lab. They now have the capacity to send data at +C velocity, so that data typed will appear on the screen befiore it is typed. It is only a microsecond before, but hey man, gotta start somewhere. Also they are finding that if you get small enough time may reverse for nanoscopic machinery. Lastly, there are some guys making, if not antigravity, then something darned similar. The craft they make rise right up in charged field, and the next step is to build a large model with an onboard powerplant.

Post a link to the article or magazine. This lab experiment and results has undergone peer review, correct?? Gee, we wouldn't want to go off on a tangent, like [i]cold fusion[/i] would we? [:P]

Darned similar is not [i]even close[/i] to "antigravity" Gravity is not a particle, not a charged field, it is a dimple in space caused by mass. I think what we have here is "popular science!" Not to be confused with the realities and constraints of the physical universe! [;)]
