Everyone knows it by now. You hop into a machine, press a dial, and then you are with dinosaurs, looking at flying cars, or are in the day before to do your homework before it is due because you forgot to do it.
Not this time machine though.
But it is not as simple as it is. Lets talk about my theory of time travel.
But first, you need to understand how I think of a time travel machine. The machine is a pill-shaped machine, made of glass and metal, with dials and a button to travel forwards and backwards in time.
Now since you know the structure, let's talk about my
not confirmed law.
SirPhillipines' LawThe first problem is in age. If you time travel back to the 1990's, the problem is you would get younger. You could potentially disappear if you bypass your age backwards. Same thing with the future. You would get older the more you go forwards with time. But lets say we made it so you don't age. Second problem?
Part 2Speed. Einstein's theory is probably what people used to solve the age problem. The faster you go, the slower you age, but the more fatal it is. At such a fast speed, the structure would break apart into pieces because of the tiny bits of friction in the air, and even if you had indestructible materials, your bones will break on the pressure that is pushing you into a wall. Even you fix that, your structure would become a meteor, and that is what makes the next problem.
Part 3Let's say you fix the speed problem. Now you have direction to go. Which way would you go? For some reason, when people think of time machines, people think of what time they would go in, not what place they will land in. If you pick Russia, you can't possibly get there with the speed you are going. If you try to circle the Earth to get there, you would instantly pass it, while crushing structures with your high velocity. So what is the meteor thing? If your structure is a meteor, it would not just crush structures, it would burn them, causing pandemonium. But let's say someone said "Oh, I'll just go into space, turn around, and go back to Earth." No.
Part 3.5If you go into space, the following could happen.
- You could crash into a planet
- That planet's debris might crash into other planets
- Pandemonium in that system
- More crashing
- Uh oh... a meteor changed your direction
- You forget which way you went
- Wow, you went through a sun!
And now you get it.
Part 4This is a small one. Your pill-shaped time machine is a meteor, and you would burn to death because of the heat inside the structure. Air conditioners won't do, because your time machine would be about 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Part 5 (I promise, this is the last one)
You solved all 4 parts, but this one is probably one is the hardest one to do. (I don't know what the name is, I'll call it change-time)
If you go too, let's say, at the World Trade Center, the date 9/10/01, the day right before 9/11. You could potentially alter history be doing one thing.
- Tell George W. Bush what can happen
- Al-Qaeda spies hear this
- They aim for Washington D.C. instead
- Washington D.C. in panic
ConclusionMoral: Don't time travel it's not worth the risk.
Does anyone know how to solve this? If so, put it in the chat.
