    Let’s just stay in our universe, shall we?

  3. RHK says:

    Of course time travel is possible. We just accidentally destroyed the universe when we flipped the switch on. That’s why no one from the future has come knocking on my door to tell me “That time machine thing is sorta a bad idea, you probably shouldn’t do it.”

    If I had a time machine I’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime

    Once again, we see how sex drives all technology. We’d probably still be using tin cans and string if it wasn’t for phone sex.

  5. Southern Man says:

    Time travel – as in, going back in time – will not exist during my lifetime. Otherwise my future self would have dropped by some time ago with a list of stock tips and advice on which women I should avoid.

    There is no such thing as a wormhole. It is merely conjecture and theory. If there were, cosmic bodies would be disappearing on a regular basis at the same address and would be a repeatable process routinely recorded. I think a search for a null time would be more lucrative, but of course scientist would have to admit there is a spirit, or whatever you want to call it, in man and that this spirit goes somewhere when not connected to a body. It is as much a valid theory than a wormhole.

      You are saying for certain that there’s no such thing as a wormhole because it’s merely conjecture and theory when it’s just your theory and conjecture, am I correct?

      I hear loud, high-pitched squealing from the hypocritical feedback loop that is your two first sentences.

      Also, you appear to be the only one who is actually saying for certain whether there are wormholes in existence or not. Ah…. dividing by zero… the feedback loop squeal! The pain!!

    We never see all the time travelers from the future because they are all hanging out with Britney Spears, since she’s a classic, historically upheld sex symbol from their grandparents’ era who met(maybe will meet/have met) a tragic untimely end.

  8. coldspell says:

    As a corollary to RHK’s statement: if time travel was possible, then men from the future would be hitting on women in our age, trying to impress them with their time machines.

    • Trent Hawkins says:

      Face it, no one’s impressed by time machines anymore, even if it’s Rolex.

      Now a brand new I-Phone… now that’s guaranteed to get you some action.

    I recall reading that time is a human invention. A convenient way to measure past events. In reality there is only now. The past does not exist in anything but our memories, and the future is only a psychological anticipation of another now.

    Kind of lame, the best he can do for time travel is “go really fast” Duh. That’s elementary relativity, my dear Watson. Call me an ass, but I was expecting more from Mr. Brief History of Time.

    If a time traveler came back to Earth they’d seem like the Aliens Hawking told us not to talk to.

    Weighing in on the “you can’t travel backwards in time because if that were possible, time travelers would have already made themselves known to us” argument, eh… baloney.

    Let’s say someone invents a time machine consisting of two pods: one for “pitching” and another for “catching.” If the “catcher” is needed to complete the transition from one time to another, then it would have to have been invented before the date one wants to travel to. However, this does not mean that time traveling into the distant past wouldn’t be possible.

    I think a lot depends on whether or not time is linear. For instance, if future events have yet to be determined, then it won’t be possible to travel back to the year 2010 until AFTER time travel has been invented. We may be waiting a good while. Another possibility is that interaction with the past is impossible, but observation is fine. Or what if the secrets of time travel are so heavily guarded that only the most powerful people even know that such technology exists? It’s doubtful you’d run into Warren Buffett at your local Steak & Shake, in our time or any other.

    Time and space don’t follow our rules, anyway. We can only make observations, interpret data, theorize, verify, and devise impossibly complex systems and devices to traverse the ages as we do the seas. Dark matter, wormholes, extradimensionality, time warps. Hell, anything is possible, once.

    according to stephen hawkin time machine theory “we can go in furture but we can’t go in past”

    please sir tell me the solution of this qustion:”when we go in future that will be present for us and present will become past for us how we’ll come back in real present,and according to stephen howkin’s theory of time machine we can not go into the past.

    Time travel is still nonsense, despite what Hawking wants us to imagine. Time is not a fourth dimension, in any sense other than that of mathematical methodology. Time is simply what we perceive as the change in spatial position of the various entities that comprise reality. To “travel” backward in time would require that every entity (object, atom, subatomic particle) in the universe be physically moved back to the exact same position that it was in at some point in the past, an obvious impossibility from both an energy expenditure viewpoint, and an administrative one.

    Dear gelflings, this is nothing but a ‘red herring’ to divert attention away from the reality of the lhc experiments, which have a luminosity of 10^27 times more than what is observed in nature. Of course there are no dangers with nuclear testing, so let us keep on fantasying of time travel and the aliens that might bite us.

    Forget about the time machine. I’d be happy with the wormhole.

    Hawking’s aliens have already been here. They crossed themselves with apes (obvious advantages of opposable thumbs, bi-pedal locomotion) in order to populate this planet after screwing up the ecology of their own . . .

    And now, a few million years down the road, it’s happening again . . .

    If I had a time machine I’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens.

    If Galileo thinks seeing the heavens up close is a mind-bending experience just wait until he turns around to find a machine-man from the future looking over his shoulder. (Marilyn, on the other hand, would probably be into it.)

    That sounds like the exact same thing he wrote for that Stephen Hawkings Discovery Channel show…

    Michael Bay called. He’s interested in that illustration.

    Good to see that whatever else Hawking is, he remains the Dirty Old Uncle of Science.

    Unfortunately… or fortunately, depending on your point of view…. because of conservation of matter, i.e., stuff doesn’t start to exist and cease to exist, it just changes form… the 4th dimension of everything is equal. In other words, people don’t exist for 80 years. Their pieces are together for 80 years, but came from and go along to other things before and after.

    “Every attentive schoolchild knows that all physical objects, even me in my chair, exist in three dimensions. Everything has a width and a height and a length”

    sounds to me like Dr. Hawking is trying to hide something… three-dimensional projection of a higher-dimensional being? (but then why doesn’t he look like a mouse?)

    • matthewroedder says:

      Nothing intrinsically has a width and a length, but we interesting humans have developed ways to quantify objects in space.

    One thing about living on Earth I never could stomach, all the damn time travellers.

  34. Nylund says:

    My term paper for my first college level physics course was about how to travel. Traveling to the future is very in theory (as he says, the answer is “go really fast”). The past though, now that is where it gets tricky. Besides the unresolvable nature of some paradoxes, there are reasons to think that this too is possible in theory. Nonetheless, this is all covered in freshman level college physics, if not in a good high school physics class.

    • Brainspore says:

      Traveling to the future is very in theory (as he says, the answer is “go really fast”).

      Shoot, I’m traveling to the future right now! At this rate I should make it to the year 2011 in another seven months or so.

    Well, I’ll tell you what happened. In 1994, when I was five years old, I remember watching the Calgary Stampede on TV when we recorded it on a VHS tape, and when I first watched the rodeo events, when I got into looking at the calf roping, it kind of looked interesting to me to think about what it’s like when a cowboy is galloping on a horse at full speed swinging and throwing a rope and then why they tie up the calves, so then a lot of times, I used to rewind and then keep pausing the tape, so I could learn each details of how to swing and throw a rope, but first as a kid, I used to put my finger in the honda, as if that was how to swing the rope, but then, I kind of figured there’s a much better way to swing and throw your loop, so I just learned and taught myself how to rope with more differences in how to hold your rope. When I did watch the 1994 Calgary Stampede, you know, I believe that might’ve been the first time I had ever heard about Joe Beaver and that was when he won the calf roping championship in 1994 at the Calgary Stampede. My mom said that I kind of looked a lot like Joe Beaver, and that Joe Beaver really looks a lot like me. So then, I really think it’s kind of time for me to grow up and become Joe Beaver. So then, when the real fun really began for me in 1996, because 1996 was when the real top best fun all really began for me that when I was seven years old, when we were on a trip to Florida, my dad went to one of the Western stores, and I remember at the age of seven, I remember I picked up my first rope, and I used to use that rope a lot I think all the time, until I wore that rope out a bit, maybe. So then, after I was really right that instead of the 1960′s, going back to the real fun, is really of 1996, that’s when the whole real top fun of the rodeo all really began, so that meant other people in the real years of 1996-present could live in those real times of 1996 and others in the real right place. So then, at first, when I was a kid, when I was in my house, in the bonus room or in my bedroom, I think I used to practice all of the seven rodeo events, thinking that I might’ve thought what event would I really be doing a lot, as I used to pretend to practice a lot of steer wrestling, bull riding and calf roping. So after, thinking about all of the seven events, so I guess then, in the year 1999, then I decided, “If “The King of the Ropers” was going to win a real world championship at all real western rodeos and open rodeo ropings instead of trying out all seven events, I’d have to win it roping calves–an event in which I would own a lot of world titles forever and ever for many more years, just to show how tough I can be at and after 99 years of age when I keep roping as you know what. I’m gonna want to become a calf roper, YAHOO!” because when I had said that even though people will forever and ever still always know that there’s forever gonna be another John Denver and of course, another John Wayne (the Duke), as we listen to and watch John Denver’s music and John Wayne’s western movies, then, I figured for the real fun times by way of is to really just say, “Is that instead of trying to live with and going back in time with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, we’ll still build and have a real time machine to go back in time as the time machine and time travel are also both non-fiction as we can still go backward and repeat the same ones is only for when the newer ones of the real fun was when it really began of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs and on TV channels from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010-present, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, another Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and also of course, forever backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, antoher Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are”, as going back to the real fun is really of 1996-present, that’s when the whole real top fun of the rodeo all really began, so that meant other people and other new born ones and few others could really go back in time, right here again, in real life in the real years of 1996-2010-present could live in those real times of when the real fun that really began was in 1996 and others in the real right place, because 1996, Joe Beaver won his second world title in the All-around cowboy championship. So then, I guess then, in the year 1999, then I was just right decided that 1996 was when the real fun of the rodeos had really began in the real world and right place, as 1996-present, all here for the real right place, because I just said again, “You know what. I’m gonna want to become a calf roper, YAHOO!” You know that originally back in the days of the late 1880s, rodeos originally began from the cattle drives off the ranches and the first real contest staged rodeo originally first took place at Prescott, Arizona, as the name of the rodeo was called “Prescott Frontier Days” and it was the world’s oldest rodeo and the first rodeo took place for audiences in 1888, and that was the first formal rodeo ever held. So then, I really figured that instead of trying to live with and going back in time with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, we’ll still build and have a real time machine to go back in time as the time machine and time travel are also both non-fiction as we can still go backward and repeat the same ones is only for when the newer ones of the real fun was when it really began of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs and on TV channels from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that for me becoming a real professional rodeo cowboy, the real done deal top truth for me sounds correct and true is that I would say that from now on, 1996 was at first when I think the real fun of a lot of the rodeos really even began, and that’s when the real right place came about, so it could be just only to think about 1996-present. The real top only best correct rodeo years of 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time for the real done deal as when new people were born, they could really go back in time to the real rodeo funs from the top best ones of 1996-present, 1997-2000, 2001-2007, 2008-2010, just to say that this is all the real rodeo fun, right here again, in real life, forever and ever, and it’s the real done deal — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010-present, forever and ever, just to say that 1996 was all when the real rodeo fun had really begun in the real right place instead of the old 1960s-1984, as this was the real done deal!

    As these are not the real right ones as replace these old rodeo tapes of 1960s-1984 with a newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward, the real truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Clint Eastwood and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons. All because to really just say is that instead of trying to live with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, the newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, antoher Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are. As I felt I had summed it up good right, yes, to say that we’ll still have a real time machine and that the newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life. Only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too, and that the real truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, another Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, as I really do feel happy with what I’m pretty much doing, and I do crave rodeo all the time, at all, right here again, in real life, right here, forever and ever as there may and will always really forever and ever be another “greatest rodeo calf roper ever” as Joe Beaver and Josh Peek are both my idols and I really want to become Joe Beaver and Josh Peek when I grow up. I can keep on being tough to just keep roping more calves forever and ever at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada at 99 years of age and many other more ages forever and ever, because roping calves is something I really love and enjoy to hopefully do forever, since I like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as honestly and really believed, that from this day on, my life will even grow more. I am always here to stay forever and ever, long after I keep roping more calves in Las Vegas forever and ever, as if just to be tough to show the crowd that I could be tough to rope more calves forever and ever in Las Vegas at 99 years of age and many other ages, always forever and ever, as if just to try and hopefully show that I live forever and ever, never die, but I’ll really live forever and ever.” But I imagine that my wisdom for 99 years of age and after 99 years of age will still just help me beat ‘em forever at the Calgary Stampede just to show the crowd how tough I am at it and I’ll still be pretty athletic and I still think I can compete with them forever and ever, and that’s true as if I do think that I can beat somebody, I can. I still feel in my mind I can win the world again as much as I want to forever and ever and I also said that I’m committed to at least forever and ever more years to keep going so I can stay and be alive forever and ever on the trail, forever and ever as long as I really live, because after 99 years of age, I still want to keep going on the rodeo trail, forever, because roping calves is just something I really love, like to do and just enjoy forever and ever as I feel I can still be tough to keep on winning and say “I’m glad I’ll never retire from calf roping, never, as I really just like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as that’s why I need to keep calf roping forever and ever as long as I live, and I’ll never retired from calf roping, never, keep calf roping at the Calgary Stampede forever and ever as long as I really live, and I hope calf roping will keep on going forever and ever, YAHOO!”
    Because the thing is, last night is over. There’s a way for you to go back and choose to write and go back as of watching a good movie or wash the dishes.
    But today and a little yesterday is a new day. Which means you CAN make that choice today.
    In order to do that, however, you need to find a way to keep only the good top best great highlights of the past. A way to finally be OK with the poor choices and excuses you’ve made for not writing up until this point.
    Truth be told, none of that matters anymore. None of it. Because you can forever go back and change it a little or make it any different.
    today and some of little yesterday of what you want now.
    Make it your mission to keep pressing also backward—Hanging onto the past only holds you back still as and always, right here again in real life forever and ever. It never moves you forward. Once you let go of the bad things of the past and keep only the good top best highlights from the past, make it your mission to still keep moving also backward no matter what. Do look back—Whatever you do, do look back at only the good things. After you’ve let go of the past of the bad things you no longer need, there’s no reason to look back. After you’ve kept and brought back only the good top best real highlights of the past to life you still longer need, there’s a reason to look back and keep only the good things. The past of the good things is never over and the future and past is still also now and those top best wonderful moments from the past will still always really forever and ever come right back to us again, right here again in real life, and we know it will and we really need that real time machine as time and space are both non-fiction, and they really are. As William MaLeod said: “Do look back, you can forever look back at only the good things.” (When Rodeo Riders and Guitar Players dream).

    Can’t the time travelers just hear about it from the attendees, and travel back in time to attend?
    Yes, they can! In fact, we think this will happen, and the small number of adventurous time travelers who do attend will go back to their “home times” and tell all their friends to come, causing the convention to become a Woodstock-like event that defines humanity forever.
    Unfortunately, we of the real presents (1996-2010) actually really do have time travel, and so we don’t only have one chance at observing the convention, as it can be repeated forever and ever hopefully. If the time travelers really do leave us their secrets, we will be able to go back in time and see our convention in all its glory unless it is publicized in advance and we can go back in time.

    I really just guess this is good your yes physically that you can be going back in time but mentally I do know how to go back in time but I will say because it could never mess up the future, and I REALLY NEED HELP IN LEARNING HOW TO BUILD A REAL TIME MACHINE, SO WE CAN TRY TO BRING THE PAST BACK TO LIFE, RIGHT HERE AGAIN IN REAL LIFE.

And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010-present, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, another Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and also of course, forever backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, antoher Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are”, as going back to the real fun is really of 1996-present, that’s when the whole real top fun of the rodeo all really began, so that meant other people and other new born ones and few others could really go back in time, right here again, in real life in the real years of 1996-2010-present could live in those real times of when the real fun that really began was in 1996 and others in the real right place, because 1996, Joe Beaver won his second world title in the All-around cowboy championship. So then, I guess then, in the year 1999, then I was just right decided that 1996 was when the real fun of the rodeos had really began in the real world and right place, as 1996-present, all here for the real right place, because I just said again, “You know what. I’m gonna want to become a calf roper, YAHOO!” You know that originally back in the days of the late 1880s, rodeos originally began from the cattle drives off the ranches and the first real contest staged rodeo originally first took place at Prescott, Arizona, as the name of the rodeo was called “Prescott Frontier Days” and it was the world’s oldest rodeo and the first rodeo took place for audiences in 1888, and that was the first formal rodeo ever held. So then, I really figured that instead of trying to live with and going back in time with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, we’ll still build and have a real time machine to go back in time as the time machine and time travel are also both non-fiction as we can still go backward and repeat the same ones is only for when the newer ones of the real fun was when it really began of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs and on TV channels from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that for me becoming a real professional rodeo cowboy, the real done deal top truth for me sounds correct and true is that I would say that from now on, 1996 was at first when I think the real fun of a lot of the rodeos really even began, and that’s when the real right place came about, so it could be just only to think about 1996-present. The real top only best correct rodeo years of 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time for the real done deal as when new people were born, they could really go back in time to the real rodeo funs from the top best ones of 1996-present, 1997-2000, 2001-2007, 2008-2010, just to say that this is all the real rodeo fun, right here again, in real life, forever and ever, and it’s the real done deal — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010-present, forever and ever, just to say that 1996 was all when the real rodeo fun had really begun in the real right place instead of the old 1960s-1984, as this was the real done deal!
    As these are not the real right ones as replace these old rodeo tapes of 1960s-1984 with a newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward, the real truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Clint Eastwood and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons. All because to really just say is that instead of trying to live with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, the newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, antoher Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are. As I felt I had summed it up good right, yes, to say that we’ll still have a real time machine and that the newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life. Only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too, and that the real truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, another Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, as I really do feel happy with what I’m pretty much doing, and I do crave rodeo all the time, at all, right here again, in real life, right here, forever and ever as there may and will always really forever and ever be another “greatest rodeo calf roper ever” as Joe Beaver and Josh Peek are both my idols and I really want to become Joe Beaver and Josh Peek when I grow up. I can keep on being tough to just keep roping more calves forever and ever at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada at 99 years of age and many other more ages forever and ever, because roping calves is something I really love and enjoy to hopefully do forever, since I like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as honestly and really believed, that from this day on, my life will even grow more. I am always here to stay forever and ever, long after I keep roping more calves in Las Vegas forever and ever, as if just to be tough to show the crowd that I could be tough to rope more calves forever and ever in Las Vegas at 99 years of age and many other ages, always forever and ever, as if just to try and hopefully show that I live forever and ever, never die, but I’ll really live forever and ever.” But I imagine that my wisdom for 99 years of age and after 99 years of age will still just help me beat ‘em forever at the Calgary Stampede just to show the crowd how tough I am at it and I’ll still be pretty athletic and I still think I can compete with them forever and ever, and that’s true as if I do think that I can beat somebody, I can. I still feel in my mind I can win the world again as much as I want to forever and ever and I also said that I’m committed to at least forever and ever more years to keep going so I can stay and be alive forever and ever on the trail, forever and ever as long as I really live, because after 99 years of age, I still want to keep going on the rodeo trail, forever, because roping calves is just something I really love, like to do and just enjoy forever and ever as I feel I can still be tough to keep on winning and say “I’m glad I’ll never retire from calf roping, never, as I really just like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as that’s why I need to keep calf roping forever and ever as long as I live, and I’ll never retired from calf roping, never, keep calf roping at the Calgary Stampede forever and ever as long as I really live, and I hope calf roping will keep on going forever and ever, YAHOO!”

    Because the thing is, last night is over. There’s a way for you to go back and choose to write and go back as of watching a good movie or wash the dishes.
    But today and a little yesterday is a new day. Which means you CAN make that choice today.
    In order to do that, however, you need to find a way to keep only the good top best great highlights of the past. A way to finally be OK with the poor choices and excuses you’ve made for not writing up until this point.
    Truth be told, none of that matters anymore. None of it. Because you can forever go back and change it a little or make it any different.
    today and some of little yesterday of what you want now.
    Make it your mission to keep pressing also backward—Hanging onto the past only holds you back still as and always, right here again in real life forever and ever. It never moves you forward. Once you let go of the bad things of the past and keep only the good top best highlights from the past, make it your mission to still keep moving also backward no matter what. Do look back—Whatever you do, do look back at only the good things. After you’ve let go of the past of the bad things you no longer need, there’s no reason to look back. After you’ve kept and brought back only the good top best real highlights of the past to life you still longer need, there’s a reason to look back and keep only the good things. The past of the good things is never over and the future and past is still also now and those top best wonderful moments from the past will still always really forever and ever come right back to us again, right here again in real life, and we know it will and we really need that real time machine as time and space are both non-fiction, and they really are. As William MaLeod said: “Do look back, you can forever look back at only the good things.” (When Rodeo Riders and Guitar Players dream).

    Time machines are also commonly seen in science non-fiction films, videos and books, but I really hope that someone knows how to build one, and it better be built soon.
    However, it is possible to slow down time by travelling very fast and slow relative to someone who is stationary. This was predicted by MacLeod’s theory of relativity at the beginning of the 1996 (was when the real fun had really begun) and has since been proved many times that we can go back in time.

    I really need some help to find a way to go back in time to those different years these were photographed, as I hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out how those ropers really swung and threw his ropes in how many swings it took him and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how they tie up the legs like, and I’ll go back in time to those images and I hopefully can, and I know I will with the real non-fiction time machine, as time travel is also non-fiction, belive me on that, as it would never ever be a lot of work to draw them, I just want help to find a way to go back in time to those years those were photographed, as I really hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out what and how did those ropers really swing and threw his ropes in how many swings it took them and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how do they tie up the legs like, that’s what I really want to know, and I hope it’s really gonna work for me, someday, just to watch and see how they did it, as long as somebody does that favor to help me go there, just to see how it was done.

    As these are not the real right ones as replace these old rodeo tapes of 1960s-1984 with a newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward, the real truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Clint Eastwood and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons. All because to really just say is that instead of trying to live with the 1960s-1984, again forever and ever, let’s just say that from now on, the newer ones of the real fun that begins of the only ones that’ll forever and ever come back to us again forever and ever in real life of only the great top best real rodeo DVDs from when the real fun that began from 1996-present that contains just to show that I had to show the real truth as it really shows that I had to show the truth in the real ways to still move backward as well, too. And that the real done deal top truth is that 1996-present really began for a lot of fun in the real right place and the real right time — you are worthy to have your heart’s true desire from the real truth of when the real new fun that began in 1996 and all the way to the present and to keep moving both forward and backward, as there’ll forever still be another 1996-2010, and there’ll forever and ever still be another John Denver, another John Wayne, another Joe Beaver, antoher Josh Peek and another 1996-2010, and those are for the real top fun best real rodeo seasons, as but the dots are where I really say that they are.

I can keep on being tough to just keep roping more calves forever and ever at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada at 99 years of age and many other more ages forever and ever, because roping calves is something I really love and enjoy to hopefully do forever, since I like calf roping for real scientific precision and action, as honestly and really believed, that from this day on, my life will even grow more.

    I know that time travel to the past will really still sure be possible forever and ever and I know my own time machine will be around forever in real life and the rule from now on is that you don’t only live once, but you only live forever and forever and forever and forever and forever and forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever, YAHOO! You don’t only get one chance as wonderful moments forever still come back again as time travel is still always possible and will be possible forever, YEEHAA and YAHOO! :) From now on, stick with and only think about the real from now on saying “When Its Never Gone (It Will Be Coming Back Again Forever)”.

    I know that time travel to the past will really still sure be possible forever and ever and I know my own time machine will be around forever in real life and the rule from now on is that you don’t only live once, but you only live forever and forever and forever and forever and forever and forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever, YAHOO! You don’t only get one chance as wonderful moments forever still come back again as time travel is still always possible and will be possible forever, YEEHAA and YAHOO! :) From now on, stick with and only think about the real from now on saying “When Its Never Gone (It Will Be Coming Back Again Forever)”.

    But there is one important difference: while humans can travel freely in any physical direction — up and down, left and right, back and forth — they can also go only backward in time, still forever backward, along with forward.

    I think a lot depends on whether or not time is linear. For instance, if future events have yet to be determined, then it really will be possible to travel back to the years 1996-2010 until AFTER time travel has been invented. We may be waiting a good while. Another possibility is that interaction with the past is impossible, but observation is fine. Or what if the secrets of time travel are so heavily guarded that only the most powerful people even know that such technology exists? It’s doubtful you’d run into Warren Buffett at your local Steak & Shake, in our time or any other.
    According to one of Einstein’s Theories of Relativity, if you go fast, then time goes slower around you. Therefore, time travel to the past is also still possible – it just takes a heck of a lot of energy. I really just guess this is good your yes physically that you can be going back in time but mentally I do know how to go back in time but I will say because it could never mess up the future, and I REALLY NEED HELP IN LEARNING HOW TO BUILD A REAL TIME MACHINE, SO WE CAN TRY TO BRING THE PAST BACK TO LIFE, RIGHT HERE AGAIN IN REAL LIFE.

    We believe time travel to the past is really possible. The event has happened. It is a fixed event – an occurrence in time. Therefore it can be hopefully visited, which is why I really need this help, OK. However I do believe time travel is all possible and these can only be created as we move both forwards and backwards in time, also forever backwards, right here again in real life.

    We’re like a family. This hit so close to home. During the opening, I think there were sometimes tears or never tears on every guy’s face. You have to have faith and keep going. There’s a reason for everything and you have to still go both backward and forward, you can go backward, in whatever you do, you can still go backward just to try and repeat these same kind of calf roping runs that will definitely make you a true real cowboy, which I hope that time travel will still be possible as long as I live forever and ever, and that’s why I really need this help, OK.

    Time machines are also commonly seen in science non-fiction films, videos and books, but I really hope that someone knows how to build one, and it better be built soon.

    I really need some help to find a way to go back in time to those different years before these were photographed, as I hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out how those ropers really swung and threw his ropes in how many swings it took him and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how they tie up the legs like, and I’ll go back in time to those images and I hopefully can, and I know I will with the real non-fiction time machine, as time travel is also non-fiction, belive me on that, as it would never ever be a lot of work to draw them, I just want help to find a way to go back in time to those years those were photographed, as I really hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out what and how did those ropers really swing and threw his ropes in how many swings it took them and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how do they tie up the legs like, that’s what I really want to know, and I hope it’s really gonna work for me, someday, just to watch and see how they did it, as long as somebody does that favor to help me go there, just to see how it was done, and that’s why I really need the help to be able to as you can go back in time to try and watch how many swings did it take the roper to catch that calf and what does he tie up the legs of the calf like with how many wraps, and that’s why I really need this help, because I hope I can go back to watch what those ropers really did it like, and that’s why I want to make this true, OK?

    I have a feeling with a real time machine that some and few favorite good things from the past will always come back someday, somehow and sometime, as I just never think about letting the good things pass, as I know one day, there’ll always be another 2007 NFR sometime, and I hope to get back to the 2007 NFR again. I also hope to get to the Mo’Betta calf roping and the World’s Richest Calf Roping by 2010, because I’ve really been wanting to go there. I’ll still enjoy the 2007 NFR as I hope to get back to the 2007 NFR sometime, and I think I really might be glad to do it again at some point as I have a feeling with a real time machine that some and few favorite good things from the past will always come back someday, somehow and sometime, as I just never think about letting the good things pass, as I know one day, there’ll always be another 2007 NFR sometime, and I hope to get back to the NFR again. I also hope to get to the Mo’Betta calf roping and the World’s Richest Calf Roping by 2010, because I’ve really been wanting to go there. I might one day think about making a college rodeo by 2011 or 2012. I have a feeling that I’m going to be a real rodeo and ranch cowboy at my rodeo tie-down calf roping skills at roping in the Mo’Betta, Calgary Stampede, the NFR, and other rodeos and also, I’ll be roping a few calves on the ranches, as if for branding. :) I have a feeling with a real time machine that some and few favorite good things from the past will always come back someday, somehow and sometime, as I just never think about letting the good things pass, as I know one day, there’ll always be another 2007 NFR sometime, and I hope to get back to the NFR again. I also hope to get to the Mo’Betta calf roping and the World’s Richest Calf Roping by 2010, because I’ve really been wanting to go there. The picture of the time machine was something as I really wish and figure that it’ll take me back to the 2007 NFR, and I know it’ll happen again, I hope, as I wish it wouldn’t depress me and worry me more that I just really sure hope that the rodeo, tie-down calf roping, horses, cattle and cowboys and making the rodeo DVD’s go on forever in the 21st century and the 100th century forever for a lot of years, decades, centuries and milleniums forever, because I really want to do calf roping in 2011, and I need to hope that 2020 and 2099 and 100th century that all the rodeos will go on forever and I’ll be calf roping forever at the age of 76, as I keep roping forever. What does it mean that however, rodeo cowboys are not necessarily working ranch cowboys, because I wasn’t born on the ranch and I really would like to rope and tie calves at the Mo’Betta roping, World’s Richest and the Calgary Stampede, because I would like to buy a nice place and just compete and do a lot of rodeos mostly and forever and it’s true, I really want to go to and compete at the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Mo’Betta calf roping, and it’s true I really want to have it just to happen to me, as if and hopefully by 2011 or 2012, I’ll be on the rodeo circuit and first go in the college rodeo and then I really want to get some calf roping done and be on the DVD’s at the Mo’Betta calf roping, and I just really want to do calf roping at real rodeos in 2010 hopefully, as I really find and like this job just a very easy task to rope a moving calf from a moving horse and I know I can do it on the DVD’s at the Mo’Betta, just so I could repeat a lot of the same pictures, paintings, and video clips of every calf roping image, so I could try and repeat some of the same runs forever, I hope. I’d be glad to have my own home, so I could rodeo mostly and do a lot of calf roping forever, because that’s why I don’t know about 2014, 2015, 2020, 2036 and 2050 and 2060 that I just hope that calf roping will go on forever and I just wish I could be doing it, just so I could constantly live in the past of 2007 and 2009 forever, all about wanting to be on a rodeo DVD at my roping, as I hope everything’ll work out fine and OK with me, because I’m also worried by 2050 or 2090 or the 100th century and more forever. I hope that cowboys will be calf roping at the rodeos forever in 2050 and more other years.

    Human mind, dreams, vision and imagination
    Can transport one forward and backward in time.

    Mind is the time machine to go to past and future
    But time really forever also goes backward but also backward;
    Also, time a little bit goes in circle but only straight!

    Recollection of past is possible in the present;
    Visualization of future is still possible in the present;
    But one can go to the past or future ever now!

    Hour glass can show the time like clock of today
    But it can bring back the past to reality now
    Or bring to our vision the future of world now!

    Mind is the time machine that can read history;
    Mind is the same machine to see the future too;
    But time still forever really needs to hopefully go to the past but also to future, and also the past (just to hope it can be repeated again)!

    In my opinion it is really possible at all to go backwards in time.
    Even in the case of a hypothetical closed loop situation in GR would we univocally have to conclude that something went back in time? I do really think so, since we could alternatively interpret the results as an effect of non-locality.
    To this effect, I would say that, in real life, if the future and also the past is somehow determined by what happened in the past – in a nontrivial way, you will be able to go back in time, and that’s why I really need this help to try to find a way that I really need some help to find a way to go back in time to those different years before these were photographed, as I hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out how those ropers really swung and threw his ropes in how many swings it took him and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how they tie up the legs like, and I’ll go back in time to those images and I hopefully can, and I know I will with the real non-fiction time machine, as time travel is also non-fiction, belive me on that, as it would never ever be a lot of work to draw them, I just want help to find a way to go back in time to those years those were photographed, as I really hope that there’s a way to get to go back and watch to find out what and how did those ropers really swing and threw his ropes in how many swings it took them and how many wraps to tie the calf with, as I wonder what and how do they tie up the legs like, that’s what I really want to know, and I hope it’s really gonna work for me, someday, just to watch and see how they did it, as long as somebody does that favor to help me go there, just to see how it was done, and that’s why I really need the help to be able to as you can go back in time to try and watch how many swings did it take the roper to catch that calf and what does he tie up the legs of the calf like with how many wraps, and that’s why I really need this help, because I hope I can go back to watch what those ropers really did it like, and that’s why I want to make this true, OK?

    Or is God wanting us to Travel in time, THAT I WILL KNOW! :)

    If it’s anything like the wormhole idea in Science of Diskworld’s Darwin’s Watch, you may need a collapsing star to constantly feed the worm hole with exotic matter or run the risk of having your Delorean torn apart.

    Doesn’t the Fermi Paradox apply here, too? If time travel to the past were–now or ever–to be possible, where is everybody?

    Time does not exist. Only things in physical space exist and time or length or width or area are simply measurements – ideas constructed by mathematicians and physicists. This idea is called atemporal theory. It says one cannot travel through time as time isn’t real. Stephen Hawking seems to have loosened a few more of his screws. On the other hand, I’m gald that someone like him gets his ideas published so that these things stay in the public discourse.

      so…. going fast doesn’t cause time to slow?

      I with you on this one. The fact that you can measure something doesn’t show that it exists: it only proves that you chose a unity as a measure and repeated it over and over. Some populations measure time according to their own heartbeats, other don’t even have a concept of time. Good Steve seems to be caught in the old scientific epistemological trap, confusing the map with the territory once again. What would Fritjof Capra say?

      “Time does not exist” True in itself. More accurately, it is space-time or time-space whichever orientation you are moving into a space, hence the time element that is “locked” into space-time.

      From the perspective of specific locations on earth, manipulation of space-time and time-space is possible, we just have not mastered that technology yet!. Potentially, 300 years from now.

      “It says one cannot travel through time as time isn’t real.”

      Lots of subtle, or not so subtle, references to HGTTG in these comments. But, maybe you young folks never read Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse 5″. Matthew’s atemporal theory sounds like the Tralfamadorean view of time.

    • ultranaut says:

      How can time not exist if it can be simply measured like length, width, etc.?
      It clearly must exist in some manner because we experience it.

        Time is the way our brain perceives and makes sense of an additional spatial dimension (maybe more than one); in that sense, our idea of time as something that flows in one direction and cannot be stopped or reversed, is an illusion. I don’t know if that’s what matthewroedder was implying, though.

    Stephen Hawking is awesome.

    I was thinking about a similar subject recently, I think I have a better way to build a time machine in keeping with current understandings of physics. It wouldn’t actually be a time machine in the truest sense, but it wouldn’t exactly matter because subjectively it would be indistinguishable.

    So, the assumption about time is that as it flows there is change. This is how we know matter is moving through time. The assumption about matter is that its current state is derived from its past state, there is a chain of causality in which everything now logically follows from everything before. We should be able to precisely determine the past state of matter from the current state of matter. In theory, we can’t actually experience the past but we can “know” it because it still exists informationally.

    Our subjective experience of reality is apparently limited to what goes on inside our brains, so if we could use the information about the past to create a kind of virtualization of reality it will be indistinguishable from the actual past. It will seem as if you have traveled in time because your brain will experience it in exactly the same way it would if it were to have physically traveled to that point in the past.

    In effect, it’s the Simulation Argument re-applied to time travel.

    I guess somone got taken in by the marketing hype for the show. He simply reaffirms that that time dilation works and practically dismisses the wormhole idea.
