Posted on 08/22/2007 8:15:35 AM PDT by LurkedLongEnough
A new concept for a time machine could possibly enable distant future generations to travel into the past, research now suggests.
Unlike past ideas for time machines, this new concept does not require exotic, theoretical forms of matter.
Still, this new idea requires technology far more advanced than anything existing today, and major questions remain as to whether any time machine would ever prove stable enough to enable actual travel back in time.
Time travel research is based on bending space-time so much that time lines actually turn back on themselves to form a loop, technically known as a "closed time-like curve."
"We know that bending does happen all the time, but we want the bending to be strong enough and to take a special form where the lines of time make closed loops," said theoretical physicist Amos Ori at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. "We are trying to find out if it is possible to manipulate space-time to develop in such a way."

All they need is 1.21 jigawatts and a flux capaciter.
Will he be able to send jihadists back beyond the Stone Age, to the Azoic?
Maybe they can go back far enough to prevent Mohammed from happening.
Not the first thread on this. Must be somebody developed a time machine and planted a thread in the past. BTW, nobody will travel back to before time machines were first built.
Paging John Titor....
Sometimes I think that if we could only have a way to show those radical, backward islamo's what an incredible world we have here with all the possibilities, that they might embrace western thought...and then I put down my beer and pick up the bug spray...
Time is an a priori concept, purely inner, and the time they are talking about here is an illusory fact supposedly developed from physics and astronomy. It’s an illusion, so you wouldn’t need a time machine but just the right kind of glasses.
Put on the glasses!
They never left.
And maybe they can even erase Jimmy Carter's presidency.
