I said almost that exact same phrase yesterday while I was in the bathroom. Then I realized it was a horrible idea because I didn't want my future self to see my past self using the bathroom. Then I realized that I was still myself, therefore it didn't matter. Then I was hopelessly confused. I will never do this again.
You... Go back in time and tell how it's done... You can make the time machine, but you don't have to go back in time to tell yourself how it's done... Then you don't go back in time, you figured it out by yourself... But... No...
Time is doing funny things again? Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff
No. There's the first time i figured it out, spending decades probably to get it done. I go back in time and cute 18 years off the production, initiating a loop, allowing me to pursue other scientific endeavors within the time loop. Each time I come up with something new, i hop back in time and tell myself what I learned.
Ahh. My brain doesn't co-operate with me right now. I'm sure there is something wrong here...
I don't believe in time travelling though. Or that humans traveled in time, ever. If humankind could do something like that, it would rule the universe! It just sounds too great. Also, it would cause a lot of damage to everything, paradoxes, black holes, physics would break and stuff. Bullshit, I say.
Yes, I just... Again thought that time is a straight line.
I don't think it in that way, because if you go back in time and tell yourself the thing, you know it in the future, you don't have to go back in time, because the time line of that moment has separated in another dimensions, and there's coming more and more, endlessly. Your self who tells the past self how the time machine is done doubles and doubles and doubles, and the past self is becoming a completely different thing... If you go in the past, you kind of destroy yourself, though the you who you told the time machine thing still exists... Agghhh... I'm bad at explaining, I guess you didn't get my point. And because of this kind of silly stuff I think time travelling will never be possible. It would cause so much confusion, paradoxes and chaos, IF it was possible.
Pff, it just got more confusing, because it makes you think about stuff. Time is wibbly-wobbly only in a time traveller's eyes.
Well, let's not forget that in real life, time is distorted, and there are holes in time and space called black holes. So Time really is wrinkled and folded in alot of places. Or maybe, like the Doctor says, a wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey sphere! :3
I wonder how many people did this right now. Got off the computer for a moment to stand there and say that if they ever got their hands on a time machine, that they'd visit theirself at that exact moment.
I didn't, because I already did that several years ago (and wrote down the exact moment and location, and put that where I wouldn't lose it). I was disappointed in my future self for breaking the appointment.
Well, I did think there could have been some complications in the future, like maybe the house would be torn down at some point or redecorated to the point where I couldn't be sure of where walls used to be. (shrugs)
I thought it was okay as long as I was expecting myself. Though... I suppose there wouldn't be a way for the authorities to know past me wouldn't have fainted or something. Or maybe future me had decided I was better off not spending a few decades trying to invent a time machine, and so didn't come back, so that I would get upset and refuse to work on it, in favor of other endeavors.
