    I know time is assumed to be a simple linear progression, but I wonder if it varies in its speed as it travels. And if it did, would we notice it? Im not talking about those days in that everyone agrees it is going too slowly, if time slowed or even stopped for periods, we would be completely unaware as we are directly tied to it.
    that makes no logic

    Lol, you don't like the raver? lol

    Finch, I'm not sure time travels does it? I think it's just there. I do know that the nearer you approach the speed of light the slower time goes around you/appears to go from others perspective with you as a reference point.

    If you fall into a black hole your relative time speeds up so if for some bizzare reason one person fell into a black hole while the other was just outside the event horizon it would appear to the second person that the black hole victim would appear to age very quickly (assuming that he/she doesn't get crushed by tidal gravital forces). I would recommend reading Gateway by Frederick Pohl.

    Oh the raver is just fine; but that hedgehog was a very nice illustration. Did you draw it?

    what i learned in physics was that you can travel forward in time by going near the speed of light.
    going the actual speed of light requires infinate power or energy, so you can't.
    if you go near light speed than time slows for you as the world ages more quickly.
    you wouldn't notice because time is relative.
    I learned this in highschool back in 1996 so please correct me if I am wrong.
    going back in time is actualy MUCH harder, involving wormholes among other theories.
    peace,

    Oh no I found it online lol. I can't draw, not even a straight line lmao.

    Wormholes are fun because if they work then that means the universe is a giant donut.

    You guys Make my brain hurt

    OK, so i take it then that "black Holes" take in matter and just stretch it out along the edge? Well i guess I'm utterly confused.

    I like the idea of the Whole Time stopping thing. It would make since. And if time did stop would they be able to jump over these gaps? Assuming Time Travel was Possible?

    I probably wont be posting on this thread again!
