    I'm going to take a page out of Billy Madison for this. I know now that the OP was joking, but jokes are meant to be funny not infuriatingly retarded. What you have just written is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling incoherent post were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational or funny thought. Everyone on this forum is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

    Time Travel does exist... I drive from my house to a friends, it takes 30min and I travel about 30km.


    Time(30min)Travel(30km) yay!
    And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for

    We can't let him find out he's actually right.

    That'd be just awful for humanity as a whole.

    In other words... time travel by hopping!

    Speed or gravitational changes will decrease the rate of entropy, which explains why clocks will slow down at high speeds during the tests that were done.
    I keep re-reading this but I can't get it to make sense to me.

    There are 2 theories on how it works, both have the same result really and same applications, but one see's time as a dimension and thus manipulable in terms of "time travel", the other doesnt and says that while it is very cute and dandy, we cant travel in it because there is "nothing" to travel by.
    What two theories? As far as I know there's only one, relativity. What's the other one? Whatever it is, it has to be at least as successful as relativity.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO. I couldn't stop laughing once you said that falling asleep sends you to a different dimension.

    theres ur "time". Time = atoms moving
    its basically just a word

    Why the hell do people keep saying this every single thread despite the obvious stupidity? Come on. In what universe does "second" equals "time"? I mean, just look at the words:
    1) second
    2) time

    It's not even the same length! The second is a unit of time. It does not equal time. This is as stupid as saying that the metre is "the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second." Therefore, "length = light moving."

    It's silly and it's ridiculous.

    You don't go into another dimension when you sleep and your body continues to age while you're asleep. It's not time travel in any way, shape, or form. /thread

    That's not time travel. You lose your perception when you sleep, but you still physically move through time at the same rate as the person who stays awake.

    And there I thought time travel saved our body as well... magically it gets older by the hours we slept... damn!

    False.

    You can only achieve time travel by traveling between the different time zones.

    not really
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Yeah i usually start those debates :P Its fun.

    I explain badly when im tired, im sorry :'(

    I dont mean 2 theories as in seperate theories, but two ideas derived from the same theory? good lord i should go to sleep, basically there is a group that denies the existence of time in the concept that it is a dimension and there is the one that accepts it, both follow the same general idea but have different ideas about that idea, erm... if that helps?

    About that part you dont make sense of, its... complicated, i have enough knowledge to understand where the people come from, but not enough to explain it in a way that is understandable, basically i dont know enough.

    The best way i can put it, is:
    The tests were done by putting an atomic clock into a rocket and have it orbit the planet for a time, and checking for discrepancies between that clock and the one on earth.
    Now, all clocks, atomic or not work by the same principle, by counting the cycles of a resonator, the cycles on an atomic clock come from the frequency of the microwave electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by the energy change of an atom or molecule used as a resonator, which is affected by speed.

    Now what is actually happening there is what is up to debate, if it is simply slowing down the speed at which the atoms can vibrate due to gravitational forces thus being akin to putting food in the freezer to preserve it longer because it takes longer for it to deteriorate, or if it is affecting something else such as say "time" as a dimension.

    Then again, i dont know enough to put it in better words, and i am far too tired (going to sleep :P) to make an effort :P

    No... its not following the "same general idea" if you reject General Relativity's treamtment of spacetime...

    No, that's really just an argument from ignorance. Your alternative explanation amounts to "I don't know why this happens so I'm going to say it's because lack of gravity makes atoms vibrate less". Time dilation caused by the nature of spacetime itself is well explained by General Relativity, which has been vetted and validated by numerous experimental evidence.You can't selectively reject relativity - you need to at least produce a new theory that can reproduce ALL of relativity's previous successes.

    How to time travel:
    Step 1: go to sleep.
    Step 2: wake up. You have miraculously awoken in a not so distant part of the future.

    Funny post, too bad about the uptight people coming in here with their logic. They must be fun at parties.

    Haven't read any of the posts, but all I can say is that yes, time travel is real. They were experimenting on some microbes and it worked. It's just going to pass some time before it will be tested on bigger scale. It's the same with teleportation, they teleported beams of light and the same as with travel, it will take a lot of time before we see that develop a bit more.

    Yea, China operates under a single time zone so some places the sun rises at 5 and others at 10 - you cant explain that!

    Mhm you are right.

    Again im not able to explain myself properly, besides it is not my theory so i cant really defend it :P
    They are not rejecting the General Relativity, they are arguing on the specifics of what exactly is happening.
    The data is there, just the interpretation is different, none of it invalidates the theory or the data simply what different groups make of it, sadly i cant put it in better terms, been too long since i had interest in it and spent time reading, at the time the arguments were quite convincing and made sense so it is a relic of 6 years ago to which I still hold a degree of preference but no longer able to maintain "why".

    And i do need to sleep :P
