Time Paradox's......


Recommended Posts

CAUTION! This can be extremely mind boggling to think about so please read with caution.

Now, Im just wondering what you think on this. Its fascinating yet mind boggling .It messes with your head too. Okay to the point im talking about. An example is:

You go back in time and kill your mother. But then how are you born to go back in time and kill your mother?


A young inventor is trying futilely to build a time machine in his garage. Suddenly, an elderly man appears from nowhere and gives the youth the secret of building a time machine. The young man then becomes enormously rich playing the stock market, race tracks, and sporting events because he knows the future. Then, as an old man, he decides to make his final trip back to the past and give the secret of time travel to his youthful self. Question: where did the idea of the time machine come from?

As you can see the second one is a little more complicated. But one explanation to this is. Time is a river. It flows and bends around and in some points fork. Every decision that is made makes a fork in the river. If you where to go back in time and save lincoln you would save someone elses lincoln but he would still be dead in your dimension.

Anothe paradoz is, You go back in time and save someone from dying, like stated above, when you come back, what would your world belike then. What if the son of the person you save grew up to be a comunist leader of america and now your in a war torn waste land. What happens to everything?

The best explanation so far is the one listed above that Mr Kaku and many other of these scientific geniuses theorize.

Mind Boggling isnt it? :)

Heres another of Mr Kaku's paradoxes:

There is also the paradox of the man who is own mother. (My apologies to Heinlein.) "Jane" is left at an orphanage as a foundling. When "Jane" is a teenager, she falls in love with a drifter, who abandons her but leaves her pregnant. Then disaster strikes. She almost dies giving birth to a baby girl, who is then mysteriously kidnapped. The doctors find that Jane is bleeding badly, but, oddly enough, has both sex organs. So, to save her life, the doctors convert "Jane" to "Jim."

"Jim" subsequently becomes a roaring drunk, until he meets a friendly bartender (actually a time traveler in disguise) who wisks "Jim" back way into the past. "Jim" meets a beautiful teenage girl, accidentally gets her pregnant with a baby girl. Out of guilt, he kidnaps the baby girl and drops her off at the orphanage. Later, "Jim" joins the time travelers corps, leads a distinguished life, and has one last dream: to disguise himself as a bartender to meet a certain drunk named "Jim" in the past. Question: who is "Jane's" mother, father, brother, sister, grand- father, grandmother, and grandchild?

Come to think of it, this kinda explains the whole deal in the DBZ universe with Trunks. He has saved their timeline and dimension but his own is still the same.

Traveling through time could actually turn out to be a huge impossible thing even if we have the ability. At least untill we have a good way to navigate time. Each decision you make creates a fork. Think of all the forks you would have to be traveling through.

Do we know if we can communicate with someone whos passed throyugh a worm whole? IS there a way back thought the wormwhole? Will the Gravity cruchs them to itty bitty peices?

Mr. Kaku says as soon as we solve the String theory we will basically solve everything in the universe. It combines gravity with quantum physics. It will explain how the universe was created and exactly how big it is and give us the ability to time travel.

We could be closer to this then we think. Many people say a kid who is young now could very well solve this equations when he grows up. But even so we do, it will still take a very long time to work everything out to actually make an attempt at something like time travel.

I dont think to many peopel like this subject or either its too complicated for some.

And about Trunks and his time-travelling, when he went back in time and gave Goku the heart medicine, and then went back into the future. However, if he went back into the future he would've arrived at the timeline of the time he just made (the main timeline). Unless of course the time machine was also a dimensional machine.

It just shows how confusing time-travel is...

WHat I think is funny to think about is, what if Goku survived, and Bulma didn't have Vegeta's baby instead she had Goku's, because he cheated on ChiChi...Then actually Trunks would just be killing himself, by saving Goku :p

I have a question not sure if it should be on the DBZ forum or what, but if Trunks was so much stronger than the rest when he got here, how come they were able to beat the adroids and cell, when in the future the couldn't??

It works in 'time [B]lines[/B]', it would be merely jumping between them, paradoxs are only paradoxs if u dont think logically or if the paradox is just plain stupid.
