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

My Opinion, short and sweet

Look, I'm new to the boards, I've just been scanning and just have to throw my 2 cents in. I dont know if someones said this, if they have made this point, excuse me and I'll be off. How can time travel be possible, if a world revolving around physics and gravitational pull, etc. be run by time in which we made. Time wasn't around forever, Adam and Eve did not have a digital wrist watch they checked every 30. There is absolutely no way he can hook, as he said, 4 cesium units to it and just have the world revolve around the little hand he moves clockwise or counterclock wise. Time is absolutely nothing, a figment of our imagination put in a circle with 2 metal hands. Some guy started beating the ground and figured you can measure something that way. Maybe I sound stupid, maybe I'm repeating someone, but thats my say in this, thanks for listening.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. How can you believe in Physics and not believe that time is a factor? True our measurement of time is purely to put a value on an axis which is the most difficult to visualise in Physics - can you draw a 4d cube?

'Time' is not dependent on the hands of a clock. The hands of a clock are dependent on Time. How much time does it take for a strem of light to cross a lightyear? I'm guessing it takes a year. /ttiforum/images/graemlins/smile.gif You see it's not the measurement that is important - it is the relationship to other factors. Time and distance are intrinsically linked through our notion of speed. Accereation is the measure of the change of speed in a certain time frame. Force is the mass times accelleration which also gives us Energy. These equations lead us to all modern Physical understandings of the world.

Without a measurement of time, we have nothing.
