Nick Mostek in his follow up likens time travel to poking a pencil through a piece of paper, without removing it from the hole.(Which represents one spot in time/space). Somehow concludes that because this is impossible(so far as we know), that there can be no time travel. Aside from the ridiculous comparison between paper and the universe, this guy overlooks the fact that the paper itslef, as well oa the universe, can be bended an distorted in such a way to bring others parts of the paper to the pencil. So if one follows Einstein's, theory, enough energy could be established to not move from one point in space/time (the paper) to another, but to actually alter the shape of time itself, to bring other times to out point in space time. (The pencil). Sure, it is no where near possible now, but taken this view into consideration makes it more within the realm of the possible, then the 2 dimensional demonstration provided by Mr. Mostek.
