Hi guys, Time travel is actually possible, as long as you are consistent (i.e. Novikov self-consistency principle). Please consider the argument for it, beginning at: http://www.reddit.com/r/askscience/comments/hr4x2/physicists_what_do_you_think_of_the_following/ Continue the discussion there

Hi Roc, Sure. Let me go ahead and start by assuming that we need to exist in an environment that began in a state of low entropy (so that life can evolve during the increasing entropy phase - I could also examine this assumption, but that's another discussion...). GR then does some

nice answer. could you elaborate on this, though? Why then should spacetime be curved? There are at least 2 good reasons: 1) it allows for a big bang to happen, thus starting things off in a state of low entropy. thanks -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google

Hi Selva, A straightforward and dry answer would be: it is a consequence of the Einstein field equations of General Relativity (GR), and one could then go on to do a derivation which demonstrates the time dilation near a large dense mass. The more interesting question (which I think is what

i was not talking about going back in time..but slowing time.. it happens near a huge mass right ? On Sun, May 22, 2011 at 8:32 PM, 1Z peterdjo...@yahoo.com wrote: On May 18, 12:56 pm, ronaldheld ronaldh...@gmail.com wrote: Are you talking about a Star Trek term or for certain space-times,

why is there time dilation near a heavy mass ?? On May 17, 12:31 am, selva selvakr1...@gmail.com wrote: hi everyone, can someone explain me what a time warp is ? or why there is a time warp ? well yes,it is due to the curvature of the space-time graph near a heavy mass. but how does it
