Is Time Travel Theoretically Possible?

| |

Is time travel theoretically possible?  I have thought about the concept of time travel for many years and I have read my share of books on the subject, but is there any real evidence that we could go back in time or forward in time?

Have you ever read H. G. Wells’s classic novel The Time Machine? Dr. Ronald L. Mallett has not only read the book, but is building his own time machine!  Dr. Mallett has had a PhD in physics since 1973 and he is a physics professor at the University of Connecticut.  Albert Einstein had a tremendous impact on Dr. Mallett’s thinking about the possibilities of time travel.

“Ever since Einstein revealed his special theory of relativity, we’ve known that time travel—at least moving forward through time—is possible. Einstein didn’t pull this theory, or even the notion that time travel is possible, out of thin air.”  –

Dr. Mallet believes as some other scientists do, that light can possibly bend the space time continuum because of its energy level.  Dr. Mallet’s idea is to build a time machine by utilizing a large cylinder containing the workings of actual laser beams.  He then believes that by entering this large light tunnel people or objects may be sent to the past or the future.

If you are interested in learning more about Dr. Mallet’s theories, and you may want to get your hands on his book “The Gravitational Field of a Circulating Light Beam.”  If such a device was successfully developed, I would think the government would keep it under wraps and hidden from the world at large. My concern with an actual time machine existing is that every military operation in the world would want to get their hands on it.

Do you think we will see a time travel machine in our lifetime?  Do you think we already may have a time machine in existence right now?  I find Dr. Mallet’s research inspiring and exciting at the same time. I do hope that he will continue on with his quest to make the time machine a reality.

  1. If you are interested in this video, you definitely should check out WPSU’s interview with an accomlished physicist. Ron Mallett talks about his experiences, his movie and his theories on time travel.
