By the way, thanks for the conversation daViper.

When I say Travelling into the future, I mean you age five years, the rest of society ages one hundred, one thousand, or whatever. Yes, this is a result of Time Dilation, and this is what I am refering to as time travel (you can still be alive thousands of years in the future, not a thousand years in your future, however the future of the Earth). This is theoretically possible, via Special Relativity, I beleive you agree on me with this, it's Time Dilation. Whether you call it Time Travel or not is unimportant. It's the effect of being alive in a thousand years (on Earth) that I am saying is possible. This has nothing to do with super-light speeds. Only near light speeds. Please reply to this one specifically, so I can tell what your point of view is, and know exactly what you are refering to when you say 'Time Travel'(daViper). You appear to be very much against 'it' whatever your definition of 'it' is. The time dilation idea mentioned above IS possible, right? You must agree, especially if you understand Relativity.

There are no paradoxes occuring in Travelling to the future this way, as you must move through space, and you only exist in one time/reality. If you do see paradoxes with this (Flying away at high speeds, say .9c) please mention them so I don't misunderstand your view.

Once again, thanks for the chat.
