Future Time Travel Into The Past

timetravel2.jpgAssuming that it would be possible to travel back in time, the present would have already been visited by someone from the future. Perhaps a possibility at a time when invention taps into the stream of ideas and discovers a way to do it.


The thought of realizing one of the great fantasies of the imagination ever envisioned is captivating. Going backward or forward in time would present opportunities not only to move beyond the constraints of contemporary events but portray the patterns that define how things that do occur develop from a cause and effect relationship (Karma) – issues of war and peace or causes of ecological changes. The great orations of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, the opportunity to share the experience of seeing the premiere of Shakespeare’s plays acted for the first time with Queen Elizabeth I in the audience, would make it worth the trip.

timetravel3.jpgH. G. Wells, in his masterpiece The Time Machine, speculated on the opportunities presented if a way could be devised to move through time into the future.

If Time, as the fourth dimension, describes movement of the three known dimensions through space, then any movement can only add to what already exists. Even moving backward is still moving from the present into the next moment which can only be the future, not the past.

timetravel4.jpgIt could only be possible to go back to what has previously occurred if we were able to subtract some of the present, enough to take us to the place that existed before the movement where the three dimensions in space intersected to become our current present.

If that was feasible, then going back to any given time would negate the memory of all that existed, from then to the present. So even if someone from the future came to the present, they wouldn’t recall being from the future.
