if time travel was real, we'd already know about it

Not necessarily. What if all the time travelers from the 22nd century DON'T come back to our present time because they know how ****** it is.

or whenever you go back in time you create alternative timeline thus not affecting our timeline
#44 to #32 - takedatsociety (11/22/2012) [-]
Or they are forbidden to tell you about it, punishable by death, because of fear of messing with the system or something. Maybe instead of UFO's in the sky, it's really time travelers, moving in their traveling machines, or just arriving.

Dr. Who appears to use a combination of the first two.   
Altered events in the past can have impacts in the 'present', but some events are fixed, and some things are just wibbly wobbly timey wimey.

Well I would say uses all three. Did you forget the episodes where they travel to an alternate timeline where Rose's father is still alive, but Rose was never born.
User avatar #66 to #62 - frohtastic (11/22/2012) [-]
that was a alternate dimension as far as I know
User avatar #65 to #62 - Lambda (11/22/2012) [-]
That's a bit different, they actually had to work to get to another universe, which has its own single timeline. They didn't create an alternate timeline by changing something.

What the **** did you just ******* say about me, you little ape? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in The Academy of Cheesemaking, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on The Daleks, and I have over 30 confirmed companions. I am trained in time navigation and I’m the most important man in all of creation. You are nothing to me but just another ungrateful human. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen since the Last Great Time War, mark my ******* words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over a psychic link? Think again, ****** . As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across time and space and your IP is being traced by K-9 so you better prepare for The Oncoming Storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ******* dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime (literally), and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my sonic screwdriver. Not only am I extensively trained in handing out jelly babies, but I have access to the entire arsenal of Torchwood and I will use it to its full extent to prevent your miserable ass from ever being born, you little **** . If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” genocide was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ******* tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** artron energy all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ******* dead, kiddo.

Good to understand, but if Morgan Freeman would have explained it, it would be even easier.

I have always thought of one flaw with time travel movies. Time occurs not only on earth but throughout the universe. Therefore when you travel back in time you are not travelling to that point on earth but that point in the universe. So most of the time when you time travel you will end up at that exact point in the middle of the universe. As a year is 365 and a quarter days long, unless you went forward or backwards exactly 365 1/4 days, you would end up floating around in the solar system. In Back to the Future they travel back exactly 30 years by date. If this takes into account the leap years then maybe they would end up on earth in that exact spot, but i'm sure at some point over the trilogy they go back (or forward) in time and set the clock a few hours earlier in the day, meaning they would end up in space.

Sorry for not explaining this too clearly, if you think i'm wrong please correct me

this is more of a time trave in movies post...
User avatar #114 - blizzeh (11/22/2012) [-]
So uh, you use a time machine and end up in your exact location - in relation to space, as in, if you don't hit the exact moment you won't land on Earth and will most likely die

People assume that time is a strict progression from cause to effect.   
But actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective point of view, it's more like a... big ball full of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff.

Well according to this man backwards time travel is impossible. ** Forward** time travel on the other hand....

I believe in fixed timeline theory.
User avatar #60 to #58 - ScottMJfan ONLINE (11/22/2012) [-]
Why don't you think the other two are correct?
#61 to #60 - xxxgnipsxxx (11/22/2012) [-]
I honestly don't know, I guess fixed timeline is more believable to me than the others, especially the multiverse theory. Maybe there are multiple universes but I don't think an action can derail an entire timeline. Idk just my opinion.
User avatar #64 to #61 - ScottMJfan ONLINE (11/22/2012) [-]
As I grew up, my neighbors were some scientists that worked for a local research department of a local University... I asked them about this one day and they pretty much told me all about Multiverse Theory, so I guess I'm kind of biased towards it.

I don't know what to think anymore. It's really bugging me because I don't know what to think.
#67 to #64 - xxxgnipsxxx (11/22/2012) [-]
haha i feel you, They all make sense, and none of it can be proven or disproven at this point.
#74 to #67 - pieratestan (11/22/2012) [-]
the dynamic timeline makes sense though. because if you killed your ancestor you wouldve never been born, and if you were never born you never killed him, and if you never killed him you wouldve been born to restart it.
#78 to #74 - novus (11/22/2012) [-]
Fixed timeline never made sense to me, because it's as if some intelligent force is stopping you. If you sent a nuke into the past set to detonate the moment it arrives, what is going to stop it? Alright maybe some freak fluke stops it. But what if you keep sending a nuke to the past every hour. Eventually you will HAVE to be able to do something to affect the past. The only question then is which of the other two theories is correct
#81 to #78 - pieratestan (11/22/2012) [-]
but, if you did send that nuke to the past and you were alive to know about the history about it, there would be a new future, you wouldnt nuke the same spot in the future would you? your entire future would be changed and then you (possibly) wouldnt have had the time machine to nuke that area. which would then unravel to you keep on sending that nuke over and over and over again for an infinite amount of times. hope this makes sense, I was confusing myself while writing this haha.
#83 to #81 - novus (11/22/2012) [-]
It does make sense, but then what is stopping the nuke? I can only assume that nothing is stopping it, and that when you send something to the past you fracture that timeline off. I think we both agree that you can't do something in the past to affect the future, otherwise the future would be changed and you would never have affected the past in the first place (thus the paradox loop). So I agree with the 3rd theory, that when you send something to the past, that past's future is altered, but your present is not. You can never change your present by altering the past, you can only change an alternate future. By that line of thought, if you send yourself to the past, you can now only travel to that past's future, you can never return to your original one, because you've already altered history.
#84 to #83 - pieratestan (11/22/2012) [-]
i guess we broke time then haha. because we cant have it both ways, or can we? it's weird to think about it. on one case you nuked the past, thus possibly changing your future. but in the future you never made the machine to nuke the past making that timeline never happen. would it loop on itself? or would time find a way to correct it, such as it actually happening with the third theory and you making the machine to go find yourself right as you're about to send it and talk yourself out of it. but then if you convinced yourself not to do it then you wouldn't have been born to find a way to convince yourself not doing it and then it would be a weird loop. dang on break and this is the most i've used my brain all year haha.
User avatar #70 to #58 - ilcecchino (11/22/2012) [-]
I believe in the fixed timeline theory aswell. i feel like if you travel back in time to kill hitlet SOMETHING stops you
User avatar #35 - xkmarcus (11/22/2012) [-]
I always try and explain the fixed timeline theory to people, as it's what I believe would be the result of time travel, no one ever gets it.
User avatar #71 to #35 - robotrone (11/22/2012) [-]
i completely agree with you, i'll never understand why plenty of people never understand the fixed timeline theory
#69 to #35 - frink (11/22/2012) [-]
How don't they get it? It's pretty simple. A good example is LOST. I would explain in detail of what they did in LOST but that would require spoilers.
User avatar #10 - jaxok (11/21/2012) [-]
If I would invent time travel i wouldn´t go back in time, instead I would go forward and bring back new inventions that people invent in the future that way nothing will change in the past but we would evolve a lot faster and solve a lot of problems a lot faster.
#40 to #10 - eyeofsauron (11/22/2012) [-]
Nothing will change in YOUR past. You would still change the future though, which is the past for the people in the future.
#68 to #10 - frink (11/22/2012) [-]
So like in TNG: A Matter of Time. Also you would technically still effect the past of the future, causing the future to be different, which would cause a paradox because then you would have altered the future in which you traveled to.

did anyone see the anime Steins;Gate?
it's about time traveling where the concept of multiple timelines is being explained.

God ******* damn it, that's the title?
I watched a few episodes once, went to bed and I completely ******* forgot the title.
Thank you.
