Just the thought of going back in time gives me shivers. There`s such thing as a paradox, that in theory will negate each object from different time periods. Like the proverbial scenerio as if you went back in time and killed your father, in theory you would cease to exist upon the moment of your fathers death. And everyone you knew or knew you from your time period wouldn`t even you know you existed in the first place. Too dangerous. Like if we killed Hitler before WWII, and Nazi germany was lead by another who,instead, didn`t invade Poland but made sure to develop the Atomic bomb first and used it against us. That was because hitler is dead. because he lived, now we have the current history that we know now. Paradox. That is a key element in backward time travel. Too dangerous. Imagine what kind of a weapon that would be. That would be a true doomsday device. Brrrrrr.....
