Luis, I am very sorry for you. You are typical product of a Hollywood and "Star trek" education institutions when it comes to physics - who believes in time travel because by relativity time coordinate is relative to observer's motion. Unfortunately, it is a very common in the West misconception - to mix COORDINATE with DIMENSION. (Even some theoretical physicists can make such mistake assigning to time the property it does not have. They try to figure out possibility of time travel and all fail).

A dimension in theoretical physics is a degree of freedom to move in. Because motion in physics is only defined as a change of SPATIAL coordinates, then there is no such thing as motion in anything else - in time, in mass or in energy. So, ONLY SPATIAL coordinates are what is called DIMENSIONS (degree of freedom to move in). If you still in doubt - simply try to define speed of time. You will not be able to do that.

So, Lorents COORDINATE transformation in no way justify time travel.

So, who is a little boy now - you, who INSISTS on WRONG concept of time and does not want to admit being wrong, or me who try to explain the difference to uneducated person?
