Don't ever be afraid to buck establishment, but do it the right and proper way, that will most assuredly set you apart.
Good Luck. -Adam _________________________________________________ : I too agree that steve is on crack, and I know the reasons for why you say that reverse time travel is imposible, yet, I don't agree with that, I have no proof for my assumption, but I am working on it....I don't think that History is Stable....
: : : thank you fo r your sencer response i must say though that i dont really know how the machine works or why it does because i didnt invent it my futer counterpart did also worm holes are simply the actualy "highways" to black holes "opnramps" on the same "frequency" to make the wormhole. : : : on a truly serious note dont you think that "tattoe message to my futer self thing would work" in theory it should : : : any more questions? : : ______________________
: : Well, I am sure you understand the paradox : : you have just opened up. Let me spell it out : : for everyone else though.
: : If indeed you future self brought you back : : a time machine, and you used it to say, go : : back in time. You would then prevent : : yourself from ever inventing a time machine : : and going back and giving it to yourself.
: : In order to invent this time machine, your : : other self no doubt had to put a great deal : : of effort and study into doing so (as well : : as putting up with grief for the stupid : : tatoo).
: : By taking your time machine and using it : : to explore the past, you take away the : : tremendous focus your other self must have : : had, from building a time machine, to : : exploring time. Hence, you cannot go back : : and give yourself a time machine.
: : I know what you are thinking, "At some : : future date, I will simply take back the : : time machine my other self gave me, so : : that the cycle will continue."
: : It does not work this way, if you never : : invent the time machine, you can never go : : back and give it to yourself, so that you : : can give it to yourself, so that... Well : : at about this juncture, you should be : : getting the point. Getting a headache? : : That is why they call it a paradox. : : Remember these words, History is Stable.
: : Your time would be better spent on the : : wonders of things such as wormholes, : : superstrings and such. If you wish to : : travel into the future, this will one : : day be possible, but it is a one-way : : street.
: : Better luck next time.
