    It is debatable whether wormholes will solve this problem, but new theories of physics (most notably string theory) might provide workarounds by introducing a set of new dimensions, which are curled up…

    Hmm, never heard of the string theory. I think I’m gonna have to look that up.

    And thanks for introducing that gamma into e=mc^2; it now becomes all the more confusing. :(

    Ah, but this will cause a feedback loop which will destroy the fabric of time + space, thus:
    When you steal your own Lego, you will then later have twice the amount, granted. But then, when you come to the future to steal it you will steal that double amount, and then end up with 4 times the Lego… but then you’d have stolen that amount, + thus actually have EIGHT times the Lego! And so on until the entire universe is solidly filled with LEGO and all other matter is extinguished!

    But…If your time machine didn’t have a time sheild,the whole world would warp into the furture with you.If you watch the end of The Time Machine(2001),The Uber-Morlock’s Arms are inside the time sheild while the rest of his body is outside.When Alexander pushes the lever forward,everything outdside of the time sheild moves forward in time.Because Alexander is going through thousands of years,the Uber-Morlock disindigrates,but his arms are still in the time sheild.
    Also,in the same movie,Alexander’s little picture of Emma falls out of the time sheild.Alexander tries to grab it,but his fingernails grow.
    In THAT SAME MOVIE( :lol: ),When Alexander tries to go back in time to save Emma,she gets run over by a cart.When Alexander sees the Uber-Morlock,he tells him that if Emma was alive,he would have no purpose to build the time machine.

    Once you open this can of worms it’s amazing what comes out of the woodwork, fact! Time travel, in theory, is the only thing that has been proven, in 1960’s I think?
    But there is another theory thats been doing the rounds for a while, it’s called timeslips, I won’t go into details, but there have been some well documented cases about this, most of it has to do with seeing the past or future, infact it would explain why people see things before they happen or think they have seen ghosts, spooky eh?
    As for time travel itself, I think if you want to travel then cyro-genics is the way to go, providing they ever get it right and you don’t end up like mush.
    Hey! It’s a one-way trip with out the jet-lag. Another possiblity is to send a radio message back through time. Fact, they are already working on this. Just a bit of trivia, Marty

    Eep, time to start my physics project :o Reading all this reminded me I need to get started on it. (To bad I couldn’t make a time machine, and we could put all this to rest 8) )

    BUT!
    you would eventually have to stop,because (judging by the fact that your time travel machine isnt the size of the universe) you would run out of room to put all the lego you took from the future.

    also another theory on that:
    That wouldent happen.You would take that lego,so when you got to the time that you took the lego,your lego would be taken.Then taken again.and again and so on………….
    so,you’d just have no lego at all when you take it!!!

    That, is why you only take one set! That way, nothing can happen. (Geez, I just thought about it, and it confused me. I just got home late and Im going to bed, and I have to goto work tommorow :?)

    1 month ago in the train Paris-Caen where I’ve met a lovely girl, had a discussion, but not had the occasion to go further… :x
    Freud called that a “acte manqué” :P
    After Einstein, Freud ! Wow, what a conceptual topic… :lol:

    I would go back in time to when the first bank opened and start a savings account(5% intrest :o )…..then go to the year 999999999……..use the money that has been compounded for a few mellinia…….AND BUY A STAR CRUISER…..A GUNDAM and a SPACE FIGHTER…….AND A PLANET………POSSIBLY the moon…..and then i would take all of that back to this time and era……AND BECOME FILTHY RICH…(and hire scientists who could build a time machine that can go 1,000,000,000 years +/- ……..and sell that to someone…….get them rich……create a company better than microslave……AND LIVE FOR A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG TIME………..(nothin major …maybe a few melliniums….)…

    XERO OUT*static* :evil
