If you consider time to be only the dimension as defined by Einstein as "equal in all inertial frames," then no, time travel is not possible.

Likewise, if you consider space to be only the dimensions as defined by Einstein as "equal in all inertial frames," then no, spatial travel is not possible.

But we do not travel through dimensions. We travel through coordinates within these dimensions.

At near-light speeds, my time will seem warped to you, but so will my space.

Alex, I thought we cleared this up a couple of weeks ago.
