  1. Oh, God. Yes. And the same conspirators went back and refused to allow me to keep my Frank Thomas foil rookie card or... maybe Topps publishes so damned many cards in every set that since about 1982 their cards ...all of their cards...are considered to be $0.05 "commons" no matter who is on the card? "Added gravity to the room"? What does that mean? But what does any of this have to do with the physics behind the "cigar" photo? The cigar photo shows light being bent almost 45 degrees less than 6 meters from the camera but that's it. The world reacts appropriately to the gravity of
  2. In case you don't understand: Let's suppose that the quantum state of an object falling past the event horizon of a black hole can be stated as "Psi(A) = 123", Great - we have, in our very uncomplicated world, a complete quantum description of "A". "A" falls into the black hole. Over the course of time "A" is re-emitted from the black hole as a series - 1,1,1,1,...123 times. We have the original state of "123". Wonderful. But at the same time that A fell in B, C and D also fell into the same black hole. Regardless of their initial quantum states they are each also re-emitted as a
  3. This thread has absolutely nothing to do with gravitational waves. It is about Hawking and the conservation of information. It's an interesting pop-sci article that somewhat correctly states the gist of what Hawking was stating. But beyond "the gist" its a misleading pop-sci treatment. Hawking, in his paper, is attempting to maintain a conservation law by stating that "information" is conserved thus never lost. The article, however, takes that idea and without any scientific support expands it to "if you go into a black hole you can escape" with the implied message of "you can escape int
  4. Correct. In fact the only time frame that you are able to see is the past. You stand in from of the mirror in the morning and you are seeing yourself about 2 meters in the past (1/150,000,000 sec). The present isn't something that you can actually experience in "real time". All of your senses, including thought processes, operate so slowly in comparison to the speed of light that "the present" is long gone before your mind processes the incoming sensory input.
  5. Yes, that's correct...Once Every Two Weeks Or (so) But it doesn't apply to you or your story. I made it up a decade or more ago when, about every two weeks, we'd have yet another story posted by a hit-and-run poster, i.e. post an outrageously silly story (usually involving Titor), reply to a couple of posters responses and then disappear never to be heard from again.
  6. Titor was right about what? Not a thing that he said would happen has happened. None of it. As of today this planet should have a population that is missing 3 billion people because Russia and the USA had an all out nuclear exchange last year. Didn't happen. Back in 2004 a civil war was supposed to break out. In 2008 that civil war was supposed to have consumed the entire nation. Nope. The proof that he was right is that nothing that he said would happen didn't happen because he said it wouldhappen? So all one needs to do is go online, post a story on a BBS that makes certain predicti
  7. We already have a physical science that deals with the relationship between math and music (or sound in general), yes? We call the general science "acoustics". When it relates specifically to music we call it "musical acoustics". With respect to purple squirrels, we call the bio-physical science of reacting to sound, including speech, "psychoacoustics".
  8. Holy crap. You mean that just because there is currently a major war going on in Syria that there will be an otherwise undefined "major assault" in Syria in 2016? A major war will lead to further violence. Wow! Really? Whoda thunk it? If you're going to make such a total surprise prediction let me make mine. My prediction is so over the top that only a legitimate time traveler could make it. I predict that the Los Angeles Angel's center fielder Mike Trout will hit at least five home runs in 2016. OMFG! That's so off the wall. Five...count them...five...home runs hit by Mike Trout. Predic
  9. Yeah, Matey a bit of explanation is required here. The first explanation should be a concise definition of "center of a black hole." No rambling. Concise definition. I'll give a hint: Because we are talking about black holes we are therefore speaking about a specific class of spacetime geometry. Given this specific class of spacetime geometry defining the "center" is going to be a bit problematic. The second definition might be the class of black hole we're talking about and the parameters of the specific hole.
  10. In Titor's Saga Boomer used the idea of a Kerr-Newman class black hole for his time machine. You can Google Kerr-Newman Black Hole (KNBH) for specific details. The short version is that a KNBH is a spinning black hole (Kerr Black Hole) that has a net electric charge, i.e. it is completely described by its mass, angular momentum and charge. So your recollection of the Titor Saga is correct. He said that his "scientists" spun up the black hole by injecting it with electrons. This might sound convincing but it is utter BS. Yes, there is definitely a KNBH solution to General Relativity. But the
  11. What is the shark chum agreement? Ummm... What does any of the above have to do with "hard science"? What does a 1m wave have to do with time travel? Who said that a 1m wave is a standing wave simply because it is propagated inside a copper sphere? Why a copper sphere instead of an, oh...aluminum, iron, barium, krypton, etc. sphere? Where is the hard science that states 1m EM fields "restore to a previous state, rejuvenate [or] heal" anything? WTF is a "morphic field"? Come on. You made this up just to make a post. Right?
  12. Crap! First it was Philadelphia, then it was Washington, DC followed by Omaha. And now you say it's Miami? Once upon a time it was "First in war, first in peace but last in the American League (the Washington Senators) and now it's the Marlins who are last in the National League? Wow! You are surely a time traveler.
  13. The 1960's are very similar to what?! :thumbsdown: What the hell did 2010 have in common with 1960? The 1950's and the 1980's? Sure, both were similar in the sense of a poor economy but the 1950's were the continuation of the Great Depression whose liberal progressive folly was temporarily interrupted (and propped up) by WWII. The 1950's saw the rise of communism. The 1980's saw the fall of communism. Other than a bad economy what in deep substance do they have in common?
  14. Absolutely perfect. Did Eddy mention that if you look at his website that you eventually discover that it's all about selling books at $30.00 a pop? Eddy, you old rascal. I've called you out on this before. "Academic Paper" my aching ass.
  15. Why, based on legit published reports about the LHC (published, not alt-sci crap ) would you think that the LHC has anything at all to do with time travel? There's nothing in the LHC except a few heavy atoms. That's thousands of atoms, not septillions of atoms. A few thousand atoms in a collider are interesting but they have no effect what-so-ever at a distance of 10^-15 cm (that's 1000 times larger than a typical atomic nucleus, i.e. about the size of an atom). If you know something that the rest of us don't know pray tell. Please; no bat shit crazy Internet silliness. Give us actual
  16. This is not an academic paper i n any sense of the word. It's a selfie website with Eddy's not-so-able opinion. Get the paper published in Physical Letters and then we'll call it an academic endeavor.
  17. Wow! Jump out of bed from a deep sleep, toss on the clothes, grab a camera raw footage of an unplanned time travel departure complete with a horror/sci-fi musical soundtrack. Brilliant! Anna in a Home Depot dust mask. Brilliant! Two cameramen filming the entire event with three cameras from three positions all at one time. Brilliant! I know that I'm sold. This was absolutely the real deal.

  19. Yes, yes. I gave you the entire spectrum of time travel theories in the above post. They are all - every one of them - found in that little book. I'm sorry if that might disappoint you but it is what it is. If you don't understand SR/GR then you cannot possibly understand time travel.
  20. Ummm....Ummm... One and done - another hit-and-run. Get it? Maybe not a "lot" of hoaxers but at least one - the OP.
  21. And that's the rub - searching for time travel theories on fictional physics research websites and fictional time traveler threads. I'm sorry - but neither Anderson nor Boomer (the author of the Titor Saga) demonstrate any understanding of general physics let alone Special Relativity, General Relativity, spacetime mechanics, black hole mechanics or time travel. Why not cut out the middle men and go to the source? Why not start with a little research on your part into Special Relativity and then move on to a bit of General Relativity? I'm not talking about getting a BS degree in physics.
  22. Yes, you can find theories about time travel on his site. It was a hoot when he had the Time Travel Research Center/Association site. There he would not only have time travel theories, he'd simply copy and paste entire sections from other websites into his website and leave it up to the reader to figure out that it wasn't his ideas that were there, meaning that he never honored the copyright from the other sites and gave the original author(s) full credit for their work. He also solicited money from people to join the site so they could gain access to the super-duper secret member only
  23. Hmmmm...you just had to ask, didn't you? It is apparent to me (and others) that you do not speak, read or write English as your primary language. That's not a criticism. Rather, is it a simple statement of fact based on the evidence at hand (your posts). It's also a fact that you chose to join and post on an English language forum. Therefore, if you desire to communicate your ideas, it is your obligation to write English in such a manner that it can be clearly understood by the average member of the forum. It is not our obligation in any sense to spend time attempting to decipher your
  24. I'm right there with you. I've read through three or four of his/her posts, concluded that either he can't speak/write English, is intoxicated or both and am ready to move on to another poster. It's not my job to spend time deciphering a foreign language.
  25. Demi, OK, seriously. You brought up Dr. David Anderson as some sort of expert on the topic at hand. Now be specific: what information do you rely on such that it causes you to believe that Anderson is some sort of time travel/physics expert? Show us where we can see the information. I don't mean his personal assertion that he's an expert but something concrete that can be compared to other facts concerning actual physics. You do know, for instance, that "Doctor" David Anderson does not hold a PhD in physics or any other physical science, yes? You also know that Anderson claims to h
