Time travel is logical, but with certain restrictions. Light travels at a constant speed that remains inverse to a single point. (Givin the theory that one could make such a vehicle fast enough) The light that reached me a year ago has been reflected and is millions of miles away somewhere. To travel through time, I would have to catch up with that light. But, then my position would be millions of miles away. Essentially, it would be pointless. It is very improbable, though logical. Time travel is nonsensical in there being no point. One would be too far away for it to even make a difference. Then the exact same thing would happen in reverse on the way back. You would still be the same dopey person in the same dopey time.

thanks for putting up w/ me Josh Roberts
