with all the technology that we have been able to accomplish do you guys ever think that we will ever master the technology to be able to go to the future and past. or is it something we should learn to use? i could go either way on time travel, but can we trust ourselves to be able to handle time travel responsibly?

I don't think that travelling in time is possible because time doesn't exist, i think past and future are two different dimensions, time isn't linear so we can't go back in time or future of our dimension... rah i don't find words to explain it, i don't know how to tell my ideas xD. I stop here. :x

If we are thinking hardly to this imaginative creatures, i think they could really exist but in the astral dimension. ^^ I don't know if you know about astrals travels (when we go out of our body), when we go in the astral dimension, all our thoughts can give life to a thing there, if we are afraid about Sadako from The Rings and cannot stop thinking about her, she could appear in front of us... only in astral not in our real dimension ^^'. Do you have ever heard about egregores?

i never heard of that but i guess it could be true if only you could live forever to find out knowledge but even if you could you could never remember everything becasue the brain probably wont be able to hold it. going to another dimension would be cool to do.

no time travel backwords isnt or ever will be possible. because if that was the case there'd be a continuum somewhere in the world and we'd already know about it cos it'd be in the past somewhere. but the future? of course, there are many ways. cryo freezing bodies, far out in space (time goes faster) and alot more. Good question

Time traveling has always been something realy tempting to achive. But is it worth it? Do you actualy want to go back in time or in future? There are Movies about it, there are books about it, there are even disccusions about it and again, do you actualy want to take responsibility for changing future or curent reality? There is something else... there is a story about Buddah, before he die and become saint. The story goes like that - There was a child that lost his parents as a baby, so he was sent to a monastery to be raised. And so the child got older and one day Buddah went to him and told him that he have to leave the monastery and travel around the world, so he can see what is outside this place. When the young man was about to leave Buddah asked him to return to the monastery after few years and tell him about his expiriance around the world. So the years passed and the yound man returned to the monastery and when Buddah asked him about his travel the young man said that "All around the world people are sad, why is that?" and then Buddah told him "People are sad because they dont realise something - Past is past, it will never going to be again so it is not real, Future is not yet happened it may never happen, so it is unreal. The only real moment is present it is now and you must live now." The thing is that people always happen to live in theyr past or looking ahead in the future making plans or something. The problem is that you cannot change the past and you SHOULD NOT because you are what you are because of your past, if you change it you will change aswell, and the future it even seeing it, that is can never be the way it is if you see it, since you will change it by knowing what is about to happen. So even if there is Time Traveling it can never be used "responsibly" and it might be used only by person who is Unhappy with itself.

suppose, having seen your present you go to past and try and change things, then your current present wouldn't be the same. Hence it is false. That means present you are living in is illusion. How can you clear that concept?
