DON\'T CALL IT TIME TRAVEL!

Ok, let's assume one can actualy travel in what we perceive as 'time'. If we travelled back a few days then we would not remember actually coming for the furute, we would be younger than where we came from.

It is neglibible to consider time travel as possible or impossible. I can say that I have time-travelled from the future, but where is my proof? My proof is right here: I can't remember anything!!! There is also no proof of my travel! I can't remeber, so what's to say that I haven't time travelled?

The knack at getting multi-versal or some form of time-travel right is obviously to actually devise a process where you can remember being in another 'time'. If we can remember this, then we have sucessfully travelled, not though time though.

We have travelled in our conscience. It's the most powerful tool we have and it gets disregarded in theories of dimensional travel.

If we don't look at something can we be sure it exists? Sure if we look away and then look back it's just the same, but how do we know that? we CAN'T be sure it existed when we looked away.

Okay, I know you've all heard this before, but this hyper-relativity is very important in dimensional travel.

Re:DON\'T CALL IT TIME TRAVEL!

When we discuss any form of time travel, we are obviously referring to a method by which you would 'remember' the experience. Theorising about time travel is complicated enough, without trying to imagine the implications of time travel that occurs without your knowledge

You appear to be talking about 'quantum leap' style time travel if I understand you correctly. That is that your consciousness(however you define that) is displaced but not your body.

The majority of the discussion here though, seems to be geared toward 'physical' displacement theories, because as as you have pointed out it's a little bit tricky to quantify something where only 'consciousness' is involved. But maybe this 'mind time travel' would present less difficulty than displacing matter. Quite how you would go about isolating the mental energy that defines us and keeping it intact ouside of it's physical body though, seems like a problem that would require the kind of scientific knowledge of say..The Krell, from 'Forbidden Planet', but now I'm diverging too much..

Maybe I'm missing your point, but whatever do you mean about not being able to remember travelling to the past because you would be younger there? Is that not missing the point of time travel? Whether travelling physically or somehow mentally, 'time travel' means that your consciousness is displaced intact, enabling you to remember where or 'when' you came from. Is that not explicitly what we're all talking about?
 
Re:Re:DON\'T CALL IT TIME TRAVEL!

Ditto.

If we're talking metaphysical or "mental" time travel, I'll take anyone's word for it. It's an unfalsifiable argument.

If you are going to "prove" to me however that you really have, in the physical sense, all I ask is, lets see your proof.

On a more mundane level; does this
mean that other posters may not exist
unless you revisit this BB?
As was noted, your's is a question
related more to quantum observation
theories and Schroedinger's Cat than
to the temporal movement of a tangible mass.
