Time travel is a phenomenon that many argues to be true. But for my case i disagree. First of all, time travel, acording to Einstein's theory of relativity, we must be fast, very fast, because as you go faster, you age slower. And it has been proven true. But the crucial problems are that we need a vast vacuum of space (no gravitational field around the area), which is hard to find, next either infinite energy or being mass less. Now theres no such object without mass and if there is, we have mass which means that only the craft can travel time, infinite energy on the other hand can be possible if WE can survive that instant change of speed. Normal humans are incapable of surviving 10Gs at least, also the craft itself must be indestructible to survive that instant change. So i conclude time travel is simply difficult and probably impossible

You dont need to go very fast at all to travel in time. Speed and gavity warp space and time at all speeds. The faster you go the more time you can skip over.

In 1971 two scientists, Hafele and Keating, were able to show they traveled in time. They synchronised 4 atomic clocks with the atomic clocks at the Observatory in Washington, D.C.. They then took the four atomic clocks with them on a trip around the world twice by air plane. They were able to show that the clock that when around the world had gained 15 microseconds.

Not a huge amount to time travel I know but it does show that you can do it. Most of the time when they talk about makeing a huge leap in time travel its by using a short cut to gain the effects without having to gain as much speed.

You will also travel in time relative to your starting point, or any other point you would like to pick that is not traveling with you. Time is not a man made construct.

Time is a man made construct...that's why it is relative...it is a different time in Japan....so theoretically if I travel to Japan I can time travel. However, as we are just dense forms of energy...I believe time travel is possible...as well as dimensional travel....

WHAT THE. . . Im so sorry, our internet was cur off, thus not letting me respond to this debate.

If you like, a rematch maybe?

Relativity: The Special and General Theory by Einstein is 168 pages. You cant really expect me to show a proof for it in 2000 characters.

Isn't time just a human perception, or concept? Then time wouldn't even exist. so we can't travel into our perceptions...

gomergcc:

If you want to claim that Travel in Time is possible only if an object is moving in space,
please provide proof of that.
That doesn't seem to make sense.
Even if time is relative, & not constant,
that doesn't prove that traveling in time is possible.
If the clocks that Hafele & Keating carried showed different times than others,
how does that prove that they traveled in time?
You're apparently assuming that "time" isn't a "spatial' dimension
different from length, width & depth.
Prove it.

Yes but the theory of time travel is about doing it not this way lol

technically, we are all time traveling into the future, 1 second at a time
