I suppose the answer to your question depends a great deal on if you "believe" in time travel or not? As much as I would love to believe it IS possible I just don't know??? Tell ya what though, Andrew Basiago puts forth a fairly compelling case FOR time travel being possible. If you are not familar with him...just go to Youtube and type in his name. You be the judge.

The same Andrew D Basiago who was involved in the legalities of the unsuccessful bid of a gaming company to release a game about a Space/time traveller??? Yeah sure, he's definitely a time-traveller, not! Actually, there is still a gap in the market for a gaming platform involving time-travel; ;)

Hey Mylo.... why all the sarcasm toward me? I simply made a comment, OK?

 

And by the way, ....I never said I BELIEVED him, what I said was that he puts forth a compelling case. Just out curiousity...if the man WAS (as you say) involved in some unsuccessful bid of a gaming company to release a game about space travel...why would that automatically disqualify his claims as being false? He also graduated from Law School AND holds TWO Masters Degrees...one in Philosphy. So does "that" too disqualify him because he practices Law? I have a Masters Degree in Psychology and can tell you... just earning ONE is VERY difficult,...let alone earning TWO ...PLUS graduating from Law School!!

 

Again, I never said I "believed" him... but is going to take a great deal more evidence "one way or the other" for me to form a decision as either believeing him...or writing him off as a "quack" as you seem to do.

 

Tell you what, ...I hope YOU never serve on a jury! Because if you can render snap decisions based on something that flimsy...you could just as easy send an innocent person to death row.

You do have to believe in time travel for sure. I have one personal experience of several that occurred to me about 20 years ago, that has biased me into believing time travel is possible. As far as all of you are concerned this is a story that none of you can verify. But this did happen to me.

 

I had just come home for lunch one day. On my way to my apartment, the manager who was out tending yard maintenance seen me coming. She approached me and asked me how I had changed clothes so quickly. I said, "What do you mean?" she said she just saw me leave my apartment 5 minutes prior on my bicycle. I looked at her and told her it couldn't have been me. I was at work all morning, and was just now coming home for lunch. Then I asked her if she had let him into my apartment. Her jaw dropped, and her face went as white as a ghost. I'll never forget that look on her face. She believed what she saw. But at the time, I didn't. So I just dismissed it and went and had lunch. But I remember, I deliberately did not check to see if my bicycle was gone. I really did not want to believe what she had told me. But later that week my bicycle was there, so at the time I did not know what to make of the story.

 

So there you have it. A person that looks like me, that has enough knowledge about me to pass as me, and apparently assume my identity. So did I, or will I make a time machine? Evidence in my past does suggest so. And I really never gave the matter much thought until about 10 years later. That was an interesting story as well.

 

So currently I am tinkering around with an amplifier. Worked fine on the bread board. Caught fire and burned up 3 seconds after my first test run. So that's what I have been doing this last month. Reinventing a transistor amplifier to use in my time machine conceptual design.

Einstein;

 

I like your story. I have heard similar ones from others but, always, there has been an error in continuity.

 

In your case for example;

 

You stated you do not, as yet, have a working time machine.

 

You believe an incident in your past when apparently your apartment manager mistook "someone" as being you, possibly indicates you will travel to the past.

 

You say this incident occurred around 20 years ago.

 

As for me, I certainly do not look the same as I did 20 years ago. About 25 more pounds, gray hair, posture no longer straight and solid. If I went "back" 20 years, no one would mistake me now for the me of that time. They might possibly say they saw an "older version" of me, but that's about all.

 

So, unless you are lucky enough, ie. young enough, to still look like you did 20 plus years ago, (I say plus since you don't have your machine up and running yet), I fail to see a connection to TT as much as a case of "mistaken identity".

Unfortunately the only believable story was long ago posted on Anomalies.net which no longer has a forum. From that story:

 

Professor Vos Bromeaieis Relo who occassionally posted through my account on Anomalies as he expounded on the work of his mentor, Professor Chistado:

 

 

 

Professor Chistado actually wrote a paper a long time in the future to be about the physics of a Volkswagen Beetle.

 

As you know, the Nazi's were very interested in the metaphysical world. They discovered that the spheric section contained within a V.W. Beetle equates to a "Horn 'o Plenty" Cauchy space. The '60's experiment only used a fractional portion of the interior Cauchy space. The Nazi scientists actually put the entire population of Denmark in a V.W. Beetle and space remained for both Holland and Belgium.

 

Professor Chistado's paper did verify that the V.W. Beetle's interior can support and contain infinite mass. By spinning the Beetle at a velocity where a = m his paper proved that a Beetle Unitary Gague Event Horizon (BUG Horizon) would form a ring singularity.

 

It is wonderful that you would be so perceptive as to mention the V.W. Beetle. It is the basis of our time travel ability.

 

The "my account" reference applied to my Admin account on Anomalies. Professor Relo would occassionally take over my account there and make a post or two. ;)

 

Just another damned cowboy with a college education.

Firstly, I never said that you believed this Basiago fella. And I apologise for my preivous, rather brash comment. Like you say, this fella has 2 masters degrees, but claims that he and President Obama teleported to the Planet Mars during their teenage years. He further claims that he time-travelled to the past and gave George Washington advice concerning the battle of New York. Additionally, Basaigo claims to have seen alien greys during his time-travel/teleportation stints. He claims to have been chased by Martian creatures, while on Mars. And finally, he states that he travelled to the future and says that he saw himself serving as President of the United States in either 2016 or 2024, so within 10 years we will find out whether a time-travelling, Martian teleporting lawyer is telling the truth and will be the leader of one of the most powerful nations on this planet. You say he makes a compelling case for time-travel being possible, I have yet to read anything about this fella to affirm your statement.

So, unless you are lucky enough, ie. young enough, to still look like you did 20 plus years ago, (I say plus since you don't have your machine up and running yet), I fail to see a connection to TT as much as a case of "mistaken identity".

So I guess my daily exercise routine is paying off. I habitually run 2 to 4 miles every morning under the stars. Of course I do have a touch of gray. And maybe I'll have to shave off my beard. But other than that, I think I could still pass for my younger self. At least there is one eye witness that apparently I will get away with fooling. But I have to build a time machine to do it.

 

Of course I don't know if you realize it but Darby just admitted to being Professor Vos Bromeaieis Relo. Is that a German name? He does have an extensive knowledge of Germany's history during Hitler's time. Which I find just a bit odd. Maybe he was one of the scientists that escaped Germany. But he left in a time traveling Volkswagon. What a great cover story. No one is ever going to believe that. Just hide out in the open. No one will ever suspect.

 

So perhaps there is more truth to time travel than one is willing to believe. I have another small snippet of a story to tell. I believe I was just 17 years old at the time. I had a job working at Sears as a stockman. So I would take down merchandise to any department that needed anything. I got to know everyone that worked in the store. Including a couple of girls that worked in the candy department that were also around my age. Anyway one day one of the girls tells me she just met my Dad. Apparently an older man introduced himself as my father to both of those girls. Now I knew that couldn't be true. So I asked for a description of the man. Both of the girls said he looked like an older version of me. Then I asked if the man had hair on his head, since my father was bald. Apparently the imposter had a full head of hair. So it wasn't my father. But apparently this man must have known me, in order to use that ruse just to chat, with a couple of girls from my younger years. Anyway a week goes by and there is another sighting. One of the girls calls me down to come and see him. I got down there as fast as I could. But he was gone. And to this day I never did find out who posed as my father. Of course I still have the memories of little snippets like this throughout my whole life. And yes, I will be paying a visit to a couple of girls that worked in the candy department at Sears.

 

So what gives Gpa? Why are you hanging around on a time travel forum? Perhaps you have some stories of your own to tell.

Well, I have had an interest in time travel since I was young. I can't say now whether I believed it would be possible or just hoped it would back then but as I got older, became a father and then a grandfather, I began to consider the ramifications of time travel, if it were possible. The movie(s) "The Butterfly Effect" made me consider, what would happen to "my" life if someone I didn't even know initiated something that altered "my" past/future? Sure, maybe I would never know it happened but, it was the principle of the thing. So, I looked into TT's possibility. I considered it against the physical laws I knew and understood (or believed I understood), and felt reasonably reassured that it was not possible and every thing "I knew" was going to be alright. While searching time travel I came across this site and read for a couple months. Finally, I decided to take the plunge and post my opinions here and see what others thought of them. This was the first place I ever posted online and is still the only place I do. I can say, after my first 2 posts, Twilight and Darby tempered my perspective a bit and I no longer consider myself a "time travel nihilist". I still don't believe it is or ever will be possible but I enjoy a good TT story and debating the merits of TT. I'm not a prolific poster and I can not offer much insight for many posts but the few that fall within my knowledge base I sometimes respond to. So, I hang out here, waiting for good stories that I may be able to offer something to, and learn by reading the ones outside my experience.

 

And, there may be a little something I have been working on. I'm still working on it and trying to decide how to best introduce it.

I don't know about the others. But I'm interested. Care to share?
