Hi Luis,

>>>I find it collectively arrogant for any group of people to decide they've discovered that the universe is deterministic.>It's ironic, to me, that some people with a God estimate God as knowable,>and those (like me) without any gods estimate the universe to be fundamentally unknowable. Clearly, the latter position's estimate of the universe is a greater one.>I'm surprised to see you so receptive of Bohm. Even Polkinghorne (in the pro-God debate, vs. Weinberg, on acknowledges that he rejects Bohm.>H: I agree that as long as (time) is not understood in a metaphysical sense then describing time as a dimension is perfectly within the confides of physics." L: But, according to CI, time is understood in a metaphysical sense. Crudely put, an object of n spatial dimensions simultaneously possess all n spatial dimensions. In order for that particle to move, it has to either (a) exist in an additional dimension, or (b) be able to move from point A to point B simultaneously.>In my opinion time travel in the sci-fi sense of the word is scientifically AND philosophically impossible. Philosophy is based within existence, which we know only via time, and science cannot explain violations of causality.
