But if you went back and corrected the mistake then the mistake never happened, so there is no mistake for you to go back and correct.Ya see da problemo

Time travel is not possible in that no one can go back in time to participate in or change events that have already happened in the past. In that sense, time machine is impossible.In theory, it is possible to see what has happened in the past if one can manage to catch up with the light emitted from a past event. The important point is it is possible to see what has happened in the past but not participate in a past event. In that sense, time machine is possible.Einstein's theory has fundamental flaws and will be proven wrong over time.

That is a big claim, and although I don't disagree, I wonder what you base it on?

Well, there's also the theories that there are multiple universes and that "we" don't really exist in our true form. It's all based on a belief system though, and while I don't believe that time travel will ever be possible, there's been quite a few things people have accomplished that I could have said the same thing about.

The Everett Many Worlds interpretation of quantum physics is a bit more than a basic belief. I'm pretty sure than a lot, if not most, physicists would go along with it...

psychiccyberfreak i agree with you................

one of my favourite movies is Back to the Future it is a great movie, but time travel is not possible if it was everybody would be doing it with such a machine everybody would going back and change the future, if it was possible time travel would be a very dangerous thing you would be able to change the future to your own liking as well as mess things around. i would never get in such a machine or travel back to the future to mess with things. but such a thing is great to imagine and makes a great movie.

We do virtual time travel everyday in our dreams without affecting the past or the future.I would assume if you do a real time travel it wouldn't be much different. You're just aware of the past without the past being aware of you.Oh no, listen to what I'm saying. It's getting confusing. I'll be content to do that in my dreams.I learn a lot from reflecting on my dreams as they help me understand myself. It's just like your built in auto maintenance. You only need to listen to them, I mean your dreams.

Time travel certainly makes for great science fiction, lots of movies, and even a whole television series (Quantom Leap) but I can't see how it could even be possible. And since it has never been done, how does anybody know that if you went back and changed the past, the whole entire future would change? Now, if it could be done, which I still don't think it can, it might be fun to go WAY back, to answer a lot of questions science has been unable to answer. Like what really did happen to the dinosaurs, did Atlantis really exist, how much continental drift has actually occured in the past million years or so, and of course, is climate change for real, or has the planet been undergoing constant changes, both hot and cold since the begining of time. And while we are at it, I suppose we could actually find out just when the beginning of time actually was.

Time machine has both positive and negative uses.. If used by a criminal or person with wrong intention it could be devastating but if used by some loyal and genuine person for peoples benefits, it could be a boon to our lives.

I think time travel never would be possible because there are many things that won't let such thing to happen from my point of view :1. If you be able to travel trough time and if your works in past can affect future then your age should change when you travel trough time because you can't go back 10 years and still be same age while you think your works will affect the future and this can not be done because our body can not change back and get younger. metaphysical world would not exist if something like time travel exist even for just micro seconds, every micro second that passes our cells get older now if you try to make it younger even for just a micro second then you can't call it an alive cell because it is nature of alive body that can't get younger and that never can happen.2. Now let us assume that there is no need for your body to change during time travel and you can travel for hundred years without any problem. then how this thing can be managable ? how you define death in such condition ? so you can see a man from 2000 years ago in your time which has come to buy an iPad 4 and how he can pay for it ?! and what you call his age ? there are many things that doesn't let such thing to happen as you see. if something like time travel happens then you can't define age and even death doesn't have the meaning it has right now. so we see just some simple rules of this world doesn't let something called time travel to exist.3. Some research has been done on transferring a living from place to place using wire but they have shown that even if such thing happen the result of transfer would not be alive any more. so while we can not go from our place to another place faster than airplanes how we can expect to do things like time travel. of course this example is not related to time travel and someday they may find a way to transfer livings using something really fast but this example shows that some simple physical rules that this world has can not be changed and these rules doesn't let some specific things to happen which one of them is traveling through time.By the way if it exists i really like to do some changes around the world. Probably i mostly use it for seeing around the world and not traveling trough time, but i'm interested in ancient china and it would be great to be able to live there for a day :D
