The Movement of Time Occurs Due to Deformation of Space. Is Time Travel Really Possible? Can We Have Time Machine?

Prasenjit Debnath [34]


Abstract: The most complex, illusion and deceptive concept of human race is the physical time dimension. If the theory of relativity is correct, the physical time has only single dimension and also the physical time has a shape. Although we can represent time as two-dimensional representation with positive part of imaginary axis of time represents the amount of time dilation with respect to the reference frame and the negative part of the imaginary time axis represents the time advancement with respect to the reference frame. Our view of the nature of the physical time has changed over the years. Each time, an extraordinary scientific breakthrough reforms the concept of the physical time radically with some new ingredients in it. With the discovery that light speed is always the same, a constant of 3, 00, 000 kilometers per second or 1, 86, 000 miles per second, for any observer, does not matter that the observer is stationary with respect to the reference frame or moving toward or away or have sideways movement from the source of light. This led to the theory of relativity and thus, abandoning the concept of unique universal absolute time replaced by the relative time (time as personal concept) which is an observer dependent reality i. e. each observer has its own measure of time, according to the theory of relativity, as recorded by a clock that the observer carried with him and the clocks carried by different observers will not necessarily agree about the time of occurrence of an event. Thus, the physical time becomes a more personal concept related to the observer who is measuring it. Still, the physical time is treated as a single railway track that moves forward only by the theory of relativity, very similar to the concept of a unique absolute time by the classical Newtonian physics. What if the railway track has loops and branches So, a train could go forward and comeback to the station that it left earlier. In other words, someone can travel in time to the past or the future. Once these concepts were treated as science fictions, now become science facts like design of a submarine or travel to the moon were science fictions earlier, but now science facts. So, is the time travel really possible What are the prospects of the time travel Can we build a time machine that will allow us for the time travel Is time travel possible in both forms-to the past and to the future Is time travel possible in both cases- macroscopic structure and microscopic structure of the Universe What must be the essential properties and ingredients of a time machine How to address different methods in building a time machine Is a space ship can be treated as a time machine when it travels close to light speed Can we travel faster than light speed Can we have unlimited speed, if any The long standing quests need to be addressed to be forward in understanding the mysterious physical time. The mysteries need to be resolved to step further.


Keywords: The time travel, a time machine, the theory of relativity, unique universal absolute time, personal concept of time or relative time
