The MATH of time travel REVEALED: Scientists says we CAN travel in time

According to a new study, time travel is—mathematically speaking—possible. A researcher has concluded that space should NOT be divided into three dimensions—where time is separated. Instead, four dimensions need to be imagined simultaneously as a space-time continuum in which the different directions are connected.


While time travel has only been possible in popular movies and books, a scientist has found that in reality, there’s more to time travel than what we previously believed.

A researcher has created a new, revolutionary model that reveals—mathematically—time travel is in fact possible. While it seems to work mathematically, experts have yet to come up with the ‘right’ materials to create a working ‘time machine’.

The study was recently published in the IOPscience Journal Classical and Quantum Gravity and argues that mathematically speaking we can travel in time:

In this paper we present geometry which has been designed to fit a layperson’s description of a ‘time machine’. It is a box which allows those within it to travel backwards and forwards through time and space, as interpreted by an external observer. Timelike observers travel within the interior of a ‘bubble’ of geometry which moves along a circular, acausal trajectory through spacetime. If certain timelike observers inside the bubble maintain a persistent acceleration, their worldlines will close.

Our analysis includes a description of the causal structure of our spacetime, as well as a discussion of its physicality. The inclusion of such a bubble in a spacetime will render the background spacetime non-orientable, generating additional consistency constraints for formulations of the initial value problem. The spacetime geometry is geodesically incomplete, contains naked singularities, and requires exotic matter. (Source)


Ben Tippett, a mathematics and physics instructor at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus has revealed that time travel is at least mathematically possible.

“People think of time travel as something of fiction, and we tend to think it’s not possible because we don’t actually do it. But mathematically, it is possible,” revealed Tippett,

According to a newly-published study, Tippet concludes that space should NOT be divided into three dimensions—where time is separated. Instead, Tippett says four dimensions need to be imagined simultaneously as a space-time continuum in which the different directions are connected. Time travel.

Based on Einstein’s theory—the researchers argues that the curvature of spacetime is responsible for the curved orbits of the planets in the universe.

The researcher argues that if space-time was not ‘curved’ planets in the universe would travel in a straight line.

Imagine yourself standing next to a MASSIVE STAR. There, space-time geometry becomes curved making all straight trajectories of nearby cosmic bodies to bend, following a curved path around the star.

“The time direction of the space-time surface also shows curvature. There is evidence showing the closer to a black hole we get, time moves slower,” says Tippett. “My model of a time machine uses the curved space-time — to bend time into a circle for the passengers, not in a straight line. That circle takes us back in time.”

For the study, Tippett came up with a mathematical model called Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time or more charismatically called TARDIS.  Tippett describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which is able to carry contents back and forth through space. This ‘bubble’ moves through space-time at a speed greater than the speed of light times 8, which consequently allows it to move backwards in time.

“Studying space-time is both fascinating and problematic. And it’s also a fun way to use math and physics,” says Tippett. “Experts in my field have been exploring the possibility of mathematical time machines since 1949. And my research presents a new method for doing it.”

However, while the researcher says its mathematically possible to travel in time, he doubts that anyone will ever build a working time machine in the near future.

“HG Wells popularized the term ‘time machine’ and he left people with the thought that an explorer would need a ‘machine or special box’ to actually accomplish time travel,” Tippett says.

“While it is mathematically feasible, it is not yet possible to build a space-time machine because we need materials – which we call exotic matter – to bend space-time in these impossible ways, but they have yet to be discovered,” concluded Tippett.

You know what it’s just fiction.. I tried to solve that but I couldn’t.. It’s impossible..

Guest

Your imagination can. As well as mine

Guest

These comments are priceless!!!

Guest

time is not real , it was invented by the people of greed

Guest

Yes , you can ,but it is an exceptionally risky thing to do . Returning shaken , fatigued and disoriented is only part of it . Who will believe you ?

Guest

Once again, if time travel is possible it’s already happened.

Guest

Yes

Guest

I’m Travelling at one second per second.

Guest

Time travel is possibke but not the the are doing it. Bible reading is the secret to it.

Guest

Lol lol

Guest

Not so far back man couldn’t fly but even then it was a mathematical possibility!

Guest

Somebody is traveling through time,why not us!!!

Guest

yes and we are going backwards!!!!!!

Guest

We are not ready for that !!!’

Guest

I will just pop back a few decades, publish their theory, then come back to the present, and sue them for copyright violation.

Guest

I think it’s already going on.. Sometimes things just don’t seem right or off.

Guest

He figured out first

Guest

Bring it on Man

Guest

The only thing I ever heard that remotely sounded convincing was for example ….
An object travelling at high speeds ages more slowly then a stationary object ,this means that if you were to travel into inner space and returned moving closely to light speed you could travel thousands of years into the earth’s future.

Guest

I’m feelin low after 2days defeat ,so I’ll let U hav dat one…..lol

Guest

That’s a no brainer I would always choose logic over stupidity !!!!

Guest

U Always look 4 logical ecplanations, sum times dar R tings U hav 2 go wid!

Guest

Nope…

Guest

Well how ironic is that was just talking about this about a HR ago

Guest

Bs and if we could they damn sure aint going to just let anyone use it ….come on man

Guest

If mathematics proves it can happen then science has many ways not to do so…

Guest

History is full off story’s in time travel. And now they say, we finally know how to do?

Guest

they’ve been doing that for years …

Guest

it’s been happening for long time .

Guest

Needs leaving alone

TONY ANN
Guest

WHY?

Guest

They’ve been time traveling since the 60s fucking retards

Guest

Uh oh nope not me go back time its bad luck for me lol no wayyy lol

Guest

I really believe..one day…it will be possible !!!

Guest

Wicked old news they did it during 40s look up the Philadelphia experiment!!! Al beilek look it up!!!

Guest

I do timetravel every Tuesday in my Bar !!

Guest

It’s not possible just fiction…

Guest

Portile stelare exista treibuie descoperite

Guest

I do not believe it. IF so, then send me back to the mid-1940’s.

Guest

🤣

Guest

Ya so you can tell ya grandfather to where a rubber !

Guest

Yeah WWII sounds great. Lol. But in all honesty one of my favorite times. Just stick around a little bit longer for WWIII. 👍🏻
