Time Travel Yes and No
There has been a lot of press lately whether “Time Travel” is possible or not. Many of us hear a scientist spout off some theories, Einstein is usually mentioned too. The fact is this; “time travel” is not possible physically, but it sure is spiritually.
The problem scientists run into is trying to make a physical theory fit spiritual laws. If you want to travel back to 1800, then grab a book, or close your eyes, and open the worm hole called your imagination. If you physically want to get back to 1800, it can't be possible. Ruff's law: “You cannot exist physically in 2 states, at 2 different places, at the same time and expect to be considered as physically whole. However, you surely can exist in 2 states at two different places at the same time mentally”.
Another thing I hear is that the speed of light, if somehow broken (imagination again), you could theoretically travel back or forward in time. Here is the problem; scientists seem to lack logic, and I don't understand how they miss the boat on this one. “Speed” is a rate. Speed describes (usually) the time it takes to travel a distance. Guess what? “Time” is a rate too! (Note: The multiple meanings of time are usually co-mingled to explain one thing. Is time “Past, Present, Future”? Sure. Is “Time” 1 second ? Sure. Two different things, right?). Time is born from our imagination, it pits against our mental being to our physical being.
There are 24 hours in a day, yes? But on Mars, a different “rate” is needed to describe time correctly to our mental being. Okay, scientists use the amount of times a Cesium Atom vibrates to describe an “atomic” clock (rudimentary example here). The amount of times an atom travels a distance is a rate. So when we are asked, can you go faster than the speed of light? Scientists will compare one rate (Speed) to another rate (Time), which is like comparing apples to oranges since the rate at which we derive time (Clocks, Days, Cesium Atoms, Light Years...) is made up to begin with!
I think the physical is separated from the mental (spiritual). And while all things are certainly possible, it takes the imagination to actually make it happen, to describe it, then to translate it to others for understanding. I hope I have explained well enough for another scientist to convey what I just said.
