Default An Intresting News Article

I find it very intresting...
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17544598...15829?GT1=9145

It's about time travel, if you were wondering if it was something like the Boston Bomb Scare.

That is interesting. It reminds me of Speaker for the Dead (Light-speed ships caused people to go into the future in that book).

Interesting article. Especially the whole light-speed-spaceship-superager bit. In my opinion, it's fortunate we don't have the technology to time-travel. Imagine the chaos if we did! Tourists tugging on Abe Lincoln's beard to check its genuinity (a potential pinnacle of tabloid history)! Ninja fanatics causing havoc in the Sengoku period in Japan! Even more tourists terrorizing the Maya with endless babble! If we could time-travel, think of the humongous impact it would have on this planet! We'd be doomed! DOOMED!!!

Anyways, what are your opinions on time-travel?

This is Regeneratorizers future self typing this message. To prove that it is really me, I shall tell you a secret that you will only find out in a couple of years. The goverment is actually run by mice in frilly little dresses, with laptop computers for arms and the casing for The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess for legs. David Spade is the real president of your time, though of course, nobody knows this yet.

I have come to warn you; aliens from the planet Kftnapa are coming to destroy us all in 5 years, 2 months, 24 days, 54 hours, and 24 seconds from now. Of course, we fend them off(How else would I be here?) But the earth gets destroyed and we now live on Pluto, which, due to the planetary despansion of 2045, has become a super-sized giant compared to even the sun(Which has also been destroyed by space pirates). So there it is. Back to fending off the Evil Ninjas of Mars.

Think of this: You go back in time, but a butterfly effect causes you to never be born, thus meaning you would never go back in time, meaning you could never cause the butterfly effect that stops your birth, which means you could never go back... ect, effectively destroying time, or doing something unimaginable to it.

Except of course, you appear back in time regardless of what happens in the future, since it hasn't happened yet.

In other words, a paradox. Example: You go back in time and kill your younger self or one of your parents, therefore meaning that you could never exist and causing a paradox that effectively destroys the universe.

no. What I believe is that you still exist. The timeline where you come from is a diffrent one than where you kill your parents. Therefore, BINGO! Your still alive!

Paradoxes are only theory. Who knows if anything would even be here if it wasn't!? :P

Well, here's another paradox:

Will your answer to this question be no?

Now riddle me this: if you go in the future and destroy something, then go into the past and somehow prevent your birth, does the thing you did in the future occur?

Riddle me this: if a tree falls in the forest, and no one hears it, does it make a sound?

Riddle me this: If you drop an anvil on a mime's toe, does he scream?

Oh, and what's a forest without other trees? To mock the first tree for falling down?

PROFESSOR PARADOX: If he doesn't, he is a very good mime. (Plus, the anvil would probably have to be mimed as well.) If he does, he has broken the sacred code of mime and should be put to death or tickled repeatedly. In case of the latter, if the mime laughs, then he should... uh... be fed cheese!

To the will it be no question, you can only answer yes/no. I find maybe to be a rather useless answer. It doesen't actually TELL you anything.

Not exactly, it caused time realative to the passengers to slow down. They still go through time, they just 'jump' over parts.

Also, the true/false paradox, along with other word paradoxes, aren't in the same category as the ones that end the world.

Ah, that is because of the marvellous invention called the 'lie', which enables things to be said that are not true.
Written word could never control anything like time or reality, as time or reality would have to be able to understand the written word in order to act on it. So all these abstract ideas would have to be concious, intelligent beings. And that just causes trouble.

I am quite sure that nobody will ever go back in time and stop my birth, because then I never would have existed. Which is a paradox, but meh. Maybe time splits when paradoxes are created. Hmmm.

I'm going to stop now, or I'll be typing all night. Insanity is useful when talking about things like this.

Uh... er... *head asplodes*

On topic: If I could travel forward in time, I'd probably just go far enough ahead to see the winning lotto numbers.

Maybe they have, but it is something like in HP 3: It can be bad if you're seen and people know you're from the future.
