…that time and space can be/will be bent by humans?

Will we ever create a machine to warp in time/space?

no, if you think about it, its impossible.

1. If you went back in time and saw yourself, than before you went back in time to see yourself, you would have seen yourself (the future yourself that travelled back to see you) at some point. And if you didn't, then that means that you would never go back in time to see yourself. (read it a few times if you have to)

2. If you change anything in the past, then it would already have been done in the future, thus eliminating the need to travel back and change it. therefore, you never have travelled back to change it, which means it would be the same, which just keeps cycling creating a paradox.

i think 2 examples is enough.

Thank god for the 4th dimension! All that is possible.

My answer: Yes, but not for a very (very very very very...) long time. It doesn't break any laws of physics, we just don't have the technology capable yet. As for humans actually being able to move through time so freely, who knows.

At some point, time. Since time is the illusion made by waves. But traveling in time and space at same time releases a really complex paradox, so no.

yeah, thats going back in time but what about forwards? I think that could be possible

I don't see the relevance.

Although I guess if we're only talking about going forward in time, you might be able to slow down someone's metabolism and perception of time, so that they effectively hibernate, I guess that's slightly similar.

No, because the way I see it, time doesn't exist. It's simply a theory humans have come up with to measure things. Time isn't an actual.... thing. I don't really know how to explain my reasoning but we made time up. A clock is just a circular object with two hands that move around at a constant rate. There's no innate meaning attached to those moving hands; we simply associate a meaning with them based on a commonly accepted standard.

It's similar to language; words hold no power or meaning in themselves, we simply attach meaning to them based on a common standard.

So no, time travel is completely impossible and will NEVER be achieved.

GPS satellites get off by 16 minutes per day(if i remember the number correctly) we can slow time with speed and it's been suggested taht if we used a strong enough force of gravity(since this also alters time) and put a wormhole right next to it and kept it open we could then travel through that wormhole's other side at any time and arrive in the past at or near the time the wormhole was originally created. problem would be what happens to us when we get near that gravity>.<...The reason we don't see time travelers is because we have to first create this wormhole and stabilize it before anyone can travel to that time...Might it be possible maybe...maybe not.

And whalepudding time exists in a fashion since we can slow it for ourselves.

Yeah, more or less what I think. Things change, sometimes at a constant rate. Time isn't a dimension through we are moving gradually, it's the natural reaction of one thing with another. The way things were in the past may have left a lasting effect, but that state doesn't exist anymore and therefore can't be accessed.

its hard to believe we would ever create something that could do that, but then again if you think back to 100 years ago they would never think the things we have today would be remotely possible, so who knows

well that would be a paradox, but what if the different planes theory is true.. what if there were parallel dimensions like ours that we might be able to warp and get into. then we can change our future or past in that dimension without effecting our dimensions present. =0 because according to that theory, the small movement of the parallel dimensions will eventually cause a collision between the dimension thus the big bang creating a new dimension in between the already existing ones. i saw this in astronomy class haha
