10 thoughts on “Time Travel?”

  1. I’m sure there is a logical explanation that does not involve Time Travel – I can’t think what, but I’m certain that no one has ever worn such outlandish gear in the time since mobiles were invented.

  2. According to the latest theories, backward time travel is impossible, although forward time travel may be possible. Whatever it is, I don’t think it is a phone.

  3. I have no idea what the clip actually shows. I had the same impression as FEEG, and none of the hoo-ha on the net about this actually explains or clarifies the clip, it seems that the general consensus is, ‘Wierd!’ πŸ™‚

    I had a google to see what any science says, and came up with this:

    >A proposed time-travel machine using a traversable wormhole would (hypothetically) work in the following way: One end of the wormhole is accelerated to some significant fraction of the speed of light, perhaps with some advanced propulsion system, and then brought back to the point of origin. Alternatively, another way is to take one entrance of the wormhole and move it to within the gravitational field of an object that has higher gravity than the other entrance, and then return it to a position near the other entrance. For both of these methods, time dilation causes the end of the wormhole that has been moved to have aged less than the stationary end, as seen by an external observer; however, time connects differently through the wormhole than outside it, so that synchronized clocks at either end of the wormhole will always remain synchronized as seen by an observer passing through the wormhole, no matter how the two ends move around. This means that an observer entering the accelerated end would exit the stationary end when the stationary end was the same age that the accelerated end had been at the moment before entry; for example, if prior to entering the wormhole the observer noted that a clock at the accelerated end read a date of 2007 while a clock at the stationary end read 2012, then the observer would exit the stationary end when its clock also read 2007, a trip backwards in time as seen by other observers outside. One significant limitation of such a time machine is that it is only possible to go as far back in time as the initial creation of the machine; in essence, it is more of a path through time than it is a device that itself moves through time, and it would not allow the technology itself to be moved backwards in time. This could provide an alternative explanation for Hawking’s observation: a time machine will be built someday, but has not yet been built, so the tourists from the future cannot reach this far back in time.<

    None the wiser πŸ˜€

  4. I might have to read your explanation tomorrow, Bravo. Too late and too much wine!

    However – I thought that mobile phones needed support services – like ‘towers’ and other stuff. Perhaps ‘she’ is zapping through a wormhole to access post 1928-mobile phone technology to talk to someone in the future or another time-traveller, but if she has bothered to dress 1928-style to fit in, why is she making herself so obvious by behaving like a nutter?

  5. Load of rubbish, no one in their right mind would travel back to go to a Charlie Chaplin filmset!
    A totally ‘fuck my old boots’ experience!
