"The future ain't what it used to be."

# A TTI brain twister for you all...

Let's say you're riding in a car and you whip out your little time travel device, set it to 100 years in the future and hit "GO". Now, do you:

A) Appear in the place the car was 100 years ago (say, the corner of Pine St. and Elm Ave.)?

B) Appear where the car happens to be 100 years later?

OK, let's say you choose A. Let's expand things a little. The continents are always moving, right? What if you set your time travel device to 1 million years in the future. Surely the ground under your feet has moved a bit in 1 million years. Will you appear inside a mountain or under water?

The earth rotates on its axis at 1,000 miles/hour. If you set your time machine to just 1 hour into the future, when you reappear, will you be 1,000 miles from where you were?

Let's make things really daunting... the earth is moving around the sound at something like 67,000 miles/hour. The galaxy is also always in motion, moving away from the center of the universe (due to the big bang). It's a safe bet that just a few minutes from now, the earth won't be where it was a few minutes ago. If you set your time machine to 10 minutes into the future, will you find yourself in space instead of on earth?

We've beat this topic into the ground already.

Is there a name for this paradox? Dr. Schnelling talks about "relative time". I'm thinking we should call this "relative space". Where you may be one second may not be where you're gonna be the next second, even if you're standing perfectly still.

In answer to your question, it is both a bit of a and b. Yes we are moving in space, earths rotation around the axis, rotation around the sun, rotation around the galaxy, moving out from a starting point (the big bang). This relative motion can also apply in time as well with a slight variance in space. An analogy; like playing ping-pong on a fast moving train.

This is not a paradox. There are two classes of paradoxes: consistency paradoxes, and bootstrap paradoxes. Consistency paradoxes are of the kill your grandfather before he meets your grandmother type. And bootstrap paradoxes are the kind where your future inventor self brings a time machine back to your younger inventor self, so who originally invented the time machine.

Dear Everyone,

Perhaps one of the possible answers to this question lies in the nature of microwave theory. (or any theory of electromagnetic transmissions.). Now the strength of a sine wave is measured in units of amplitude which is determined by the height the wave. The wavelength measures the timing wave.

I apologize for the break in this transmission but I have to go. I will right back later to finish this transmission.

Dear Everyone,

I appologize for the break in the transmission.

I am a little rusty as to the units of measure that is used to measure amplitude of a sine wave in an electric current. But if I recall the Force measured in volts * the Amplitude measured in amps is equal to the power measured in watts. I could be wrong. Now this I know. If one takes a wave transmission that has an amplitude of four at a frequency of 60hertz that is sixty cycles a second(I think), then each wave crest will have four amps amplitude. (or four watts amplitude if that is the correct measurement terminology). Since we have sixty cycles of in that second all of which are made up of a crest and a trough with equal and opposite charges if we are talking about an alternating current system. The total electric amps in a second of transmission at sixty hertz is 60crests * 4 amps or 240 amps with a positive charge or orientation and 60 crests * 4 amps or 240 amps with a negative charge or orientation. Now this wave that we are measuring has the topology of a heli

Thankyou for your time and please fill free to correct any technical errors that I might have made on this last transmission or just to put your own input into the ideas in this. I welcome enthusiastically any input for such input helps me by improving the technical knowlege and provides me with a variety of different points of view from which to consider my ideas. I appreciate all of your time and efforts that each of you take when you make a transmission or take the time to read these posts.
