Nothing like multiple dimensions... ;)

Click on "Imagining the Ten Dimensions" on the left sidebar, then watch all of the video clips.

Whoah that's a cool site, I finally somewhat understand the dimensions above 4.

1.Don't say somthing is impossible with theorys, there an educated guess, not a proven fact

2. If you go back in time your time machine would not exist(unless your in a diffrent "demension"?

3. I think I understand the demension thingie, have you ever seen the Jet Le movie called "The One"?

4.Scientists have used electricity to cause explosions to move round metal disks (no not flying saucers silly, there about the size of my head) and they found that they go faster right when the explosion occures (ovesly i mean a LOT faster, like a HUGE diffrence) and they think that they may be able to get the diffrence big enough where they might be able to travel threw time (if they could make somthing strong enough and insilated enough to keep you from blowing up or whatever is suposed to happen) which would take a TON of electrical energy, which makes it impossible right now.
You make no sense. If you used a time machine to travel back in time, chances are, you'd take it with you.

Are you on about the rotational effect on time dialation with you're fourth point? I think you are referring to a experiment to change the velocity of an object that was explained slightly too complex for you and you jsut got that they were rotating the object. In the experiment I am thinking of. They attempted to lower the velocity of the object by negating the effect of the earth rotating on its own axis. Although it would still be moving around the sun.

I think what you are referring too with taking too much electricty is either one of two things.

1) The fact that electrons are seen to move freely between dimensions

2) The massive amount of energy to either fold space, in the third dimension, or to attempt to fold the fourth dimension, time.

You could perhaps change the seasons by changing the direction of the earth, but it would not really affect the actual timeline.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

Yes we can. Go into space. You're not on earth, yet time passes. So sun+earth!=passage of time.

I'm saying if you were to go back in time befor your time amchines was created, wouldn't it dissapear, I'm <b>not</b> saying that you wouldn't take it with you, <u>it simply would not exist</u>



no sam, i'm saying there making electrical explosions to propel an object, saw it on the discovery channel :D

If you guys like this kind of stuff (like I do) then watch These They're all about string theory and physics. They have gravitons in there so get watching (Three hours of physics!) :P
EDIT: Graviton = Here

Ummm....yes...I know that. Its not big new news. Someone made a levitating device in his garage. It uses a crap load of high current and super high voltage power. Don't remember the theory behind its operation though.

If you could fast foward time and then go back, think about it. Everybody would jump to the future for the technology there, but then noone would have reproduced in the past. So they would be the only people there, only to find the same technology, just in the future.

If a paradox was reached, it would be as if the paradox had never happened. It would loop over and over. As the video says, if we were able to do things in the 4th, 5th and 6th dimensions we could see paradox's and avoid them.
