A Unified Theory of Time Travel

Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity suggests that time travel to the past is possible via rotating wormholes and/or black holes. The actual technical practicality of actually carrying out such journeys need not concern us since this essay is in the realm of the thought experiment. Now Stephen Hawking says time travel to the past is not possible because he proposes that there is such a thing as a yet undiscovered Chronology Protection Conjecture that prevents this and thus makes the world safe for historians. I've come up with a unified theory of time travel into the past that incorporates Einstein's general theory of relativity; Hawking's Chronology Protection Conjecture, along with other assorted bits like parallel universes that are thrown into the mix.

Time travel is a staple in sci-fi stories, novels, films and TV series. And, time travel is possible - in theory. We all know about journeying to the future which we do at the rate of one second per second whether we like it or not. Apart from that, if one travels at close to light speeds relative to your place of origin then you can travel to the distant future (with respect to that place of origin) without aging an equivalent number of years (the twin paradox). Travel to the past is apparently allowed too, via the weird physics inherent in rotating worm holes and maybe Black Holes which is where Einstein's general theory of relativity comes into play. The problem there is that relativity theory predicts worm holes, if they exist at all, will exist for nanoseconds and be very tiny to boot, and thus not very useful in the foreseeable future for the purposes of time travel. Because we don't know exactly what the inside of a Black Hole is, and where it leads, if anywhere, current thinking suggests that jumping into Black Holes are a more useful means for committing suicide than for traveling to the past, but the jury is still out on that one.

Anyway, the fun bit about time travel is the various paradoxes that arise, the most famous one being the grandfather paradox. That is, what if you travel back in time and kill your grandfather before he sired your father (or mother). If you did that it means that you could never have been born, but if you were never born you couldn't go back in time to kill your ancestor. This is the sort of stuff sci-fi authors (and philosophers) love - ditto physicists! My favorite time travel paradox however is the one where you get something for nothing. Say you have this edition of "Hamlet", and you want Shakespeare to autograph it. So back you go in time to Shakespeare's era. You knock on his door, but the housekeeper says he's out for the day but if you leave the book he'll autograph it and you can come by and collect it next morning. When Shakespeare comes home, he sees the book, reads it, and is so impressed he spends the night making a copy. You come back the next morning, collect your now autographed edition of "Hamlet", and return to the present day with your now very valuable book. The question now becomes, where did the original "Hamlet" come from? You didn't write it; but Shakespeare didn't either as he plagiarized your copy which he then passed it off as his own work.

Another favorite is you meeting yourself. Say you're 50 and not all that well off. You get the brilliant idea to travel back in time and convince your younger self to invest in some stocks you know will pay off big time later on down the track. And so it comes to pass that your younger self so invests, and becomes filthy rich, only, in leading such a high life, dies of a heart attack at the age of 45! Or you always regretted not proposing to the love of your life when you were young, and thus go back and convince your younger self to muster up the courage and do so. He does, but as they fly off on their honeymoon, the plane crashes with no survivors. Sometimes you don't know when you're well off.

Or if you can travel back in time, then of course others can to. Naturally there's going to be lots of people interested in particular events, maybe even at the time, seemingly trivial events (yet which turn out in the long run to have had major impact(s)). And so you might have any number of people going back to particular historical focal points, each with their own particular agenda (most of which will be mutually exclusive), and ultimately causing havoc. I mean if person one goes back and influences an event producing a new outcome, then person two might go back and has a go at that result and things get altered again, which will then prompt person three to go back and influence things more to his liking, etc. In other words, history would never be fixed, rather always be fluid. The world is not safe for historians. Since we believe that history (or the past) is fixed, then that what's written on your history book page today will not alter overnight. Thus, you have probably concluded that time travel cannot happen, will not happen, and has not happened, however much you yourself might wish to go back in time yourself and change something. (Don't we all really wish some past something, personal and trivial, or perhaps something of major significance could be changed and you'd be that instrument of change?)

Its paradoxes and situations such as the above that prompted Stephen Hawking to postulate that there is as yet an undiscovered law or principle of physics which prohibits time travel to the past - he calls it his 'Chronology Projection Conjecture'. Since we have never seen, according to Hawking, to the best of our knowledge at least, any time travelers - tourists or historians - from our future, he's probably right.

So, putting it all together, here's my theory of time travel: my unified theory of time travel, at least to the past.

Relativity theory has passed every experimental test thrown at it, so the theory isn't in much doubt and one can have a high degree of confidence in what it predicts, even if that prediction is currently beyond any experimental test. Relativity theory allows for time travel into the past, but, IMHO, only to parallel universes (otherwise known as alternative or mirror or shadow universes) where no paradoxes can happen.

Why only parallel universes? The ways and means by which you can use relativity theory to time travel backwards involves rotating Black Holes or wormholes. There are serious reasons behind the speculation that what's on the other side of a Black Hole and/or wormhole is another universe. So, therefore it's relativity's time travel allowance, but probably to another universe. The Black Hole or wormhole 'exit' isn't within our Universe.

Whatever you do in that parallel universe is predetermined. It's fate. It's destiny - all because causality rules. Therefore, there are no unexpected ripple effects other than what was destined to happen. You were meant to be there and do what you do. Therefore, there will be no paradoxes arising.

Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has proposed his Chronology Protection Conjecture that prohibits time travel to the past within your own universe because of the possible paradoxes that could arise. Why can't you go back in time in your own universe? That would mean that at a specific time and place you both were not (originally) and were (as a result of going back) present. That's a paradox. And if you were to travel back in time to a set of time and space coordinates you were actually originally at, then there would be two copies of you occupying the same space at the same time - also a paradox.

But take the grandfather paradox. If you go back in time and kill your grandfather, but your grandfather in a parallel universe, then you don't prevent your existence, just the eventual existence of yourself, your other self, in that parallel universe. In the case of Shakespeare and "Hamlet", you gave your copy to a parallel universe Shakespeare. In your original (our) Universe, Shakespeare is still the legitimate author.

Once you time travel from your universe A, to parallel universe B, you can't return again to universe A because of Hawking's Chronology Protection Conjecture - paradoxes could arise. However, you could go from parallel universe B to parallel universe C, but, hence never return to either universe A or B - Hawking's Chronology Protection Conjecture again.

Perhaps some people you've seen or known or heard about might be time travelers from a parallel universe's future. If they then time travel to another parallel universe, then that might account for some missing persons' cases!

In short, we can time travel to other parallel universes but not to our own; entities from other parallel universes can visit our Universe. No paradoxes need arise. Both Einstein (relativity) and Hawking (Chronology Protection Conjecture) are satisfied and happy campers.

Is that right? No, it's wrong!

There's still one very nasty loose end here. What's to prevent those from a parallel universe meddling and altering our time stream? It's not enough for them to have a Prime Directive against that - we all know Prime Directives are meant to be broken! So, it looks like Hawking's Chronology Protection Conjecture must apply to those visitors from parallel universes to our Universe as well. I mean what difference does it make to your existence whether you travel back in time within your own universe and kill your mother before you were conceived, or some serial killer escaping from a parallel universe to our Universe who kills your mother before you were conceived - even though in the latter case there's no paradox, you still wouldn't have been conceived of here in anyone's philosophy!

OK, so relativity allows time travel back in time, but only to parallel universes. The Hawking Chronology Protection Conjecture not only prevents time travel paradoxes in general, but it also prevents parallel universe time travelers meddling and altering our timeline; ditto we humans time traveling to someone else's parallel universe. But how would the Hawking Chronology Protection Conjecture actually accomplish this? My best guess is that parallel universes aren't in phase - they aren't polarized or synchronized in-phase like a laser beam, or the light that passes through your polarized sunglasses - otherwise we'd have some rather hard evidence of them; certainly way more than we do now.

So, if we go to parallel universe B or those from parallel universe B visits us, we'll, or they'd be respectively out of phase with respect to the universe they are now in. Translated, they, or we, could look, but not touch for all practical purposes. I say for all practical purposes as now and again what's out of phase (high probability - the usual state of affairs) will sync into phase (that's rare). But the in-phase times are so few and far between, and last for such a brief duration that it's unlikely to result in any inadvertent or deliberate timeline alterations. That's my rendering of the Hawking Chronology Protection Conjecture - he could well have other ways and means in mind.

So another way of putting this is that time travelers would be spectral or ghostlike in their host universe, and maybe that's where our traditions of ghosts and other things that go bump in the night come from! This is much like the parallel universe ghost or shadow photons that are conjectured to explain some highly mysterious aspects or phenomena contained within the famous quantum double slit* experiment. Now an obvious question is how do all the parallel universe ghost photons get into our physics labs where double slit experiments are carried out? I mean there are no local macro Black Hole or wormhole exits present - are there? Yes in fact there are! Not a macro wormhole, but a micro wormhole - actually wormholes. Theoretically, micro wormholes should exist all around you. It's just that they are at quantum levels - incredible tiny; way subatomic in size. And they exist for just nanoseconds before collapsing. They are just part of the quantum foam** reality at super microscopic levels, a reality at the level where all things exhibit the quantum jitters or quantum fluctuations. Thus, every second of every day, everywhere, there are little quantum gateways - quantum sized wormholes connections between universes which quantum sized particles - like photons - can traverse! From the standpoint of the double slit experiment, it doesn't matter whether the parallel universe's ghost photons came from the past, future or present - just as long as they are, indeed, present!

Now you may think it would be easy to detect these ghostly photons. Just put a photon detector in a totally dark and sealed room. Well, not quite so easy. Some photons can pass through 'solid' matter. X-Ray photons anyone? Radio wave photons pass through the walls of your home. If you look at a bright light, you'll still see light even if you close your eyes. So, your photon detector in your dark and sealed room could easily detect our local variety.

The ghostly bits aside, parallel universe time travelers (or even ordinary time travelers from within our Universe assuming Hawking is wrong)) might explain the sometimes uncanny, often incredible look-a-likes that we all seem to have. A long shot to be sure, but something interesting to ponder.

There's still one more problem on the horizon. Just because a macro Black Hole or wormhole plunks you into a parallel universe (and of course you've got to be able to survive the trip itself which might be problematical), doesn't mean you're going to be with spitting distance of your ultimate destination(s) - say a parallel Earth(s). So, time travelers might also need more conventional transport - like Flying Saucers (okay, forget the saucers - like spaceships with fins and rocket motors). But then what's really there to distinguish a visiting time traveler from a parallel universe from say a run-of-the-mill extraterrestrial from within our own Universe? Maybe you could just put out the welcome mat for both options!

One final thought. Could there be a Clayton's time travel? - Time travel without traveling in time? At the risk of making Einstein turn over in his grave; I'm going to propose a universal NOW across all universes. Now I know that NOW, when it comes to observers, is a relative thing. An observer in Martian orbit sees Mars' NOW somewhat before you on Planet Earth sees the same Mars' NOW because the speed of light is finite. And relative motions and velocities complicate what is NOW. But, I propose (a thought experiment remember) to instantaneously freeze-frame the entire collection of universes' NOW. Everyone and everything everywhere comes to an instant standstill. Right! We now have a universal NOW that we can study at our leisure (the freeze doesn't apply to you and me - we're outside the space-time continuum).

Let's focus on that subset of all parallel universes - all parallel Earths and time travel between them. Now there's no reason to assume that all parallel Earths are identical in all aspects. Indeed, some parallel universes may not even contain a parallel Earth! There maybe some parallel Earths identical or so close to identical to our Planet Earth as makes no odds - abodes you'd feel right at home in. Other Earths would differ in various ways, some minor, some major. Still others might be really weird and alien, as in having evolved a dinosaur society, civilization and technology. There was no parallel asteroid impact 65 million years ago; thus no human beings around the traps 65 millions later.

Your subset of parallel Earths would show near infinite diversity in infinite combinations. I say 'near' because you can only stretch the term 'Earth' or 'Earth-like' so far and no farther, before it's not Earth or Earth-like. A 100% oceanic world is not Earth. If a parallel 'Earth' has Venus-like temperatures, it is not Earth-like. If it has a density approaching that of a neutron star, it is not Earth-like. If it has no life on it, even though in all other respects it is a near carbon copy of our Earth, it is not Earth-like.

Taking Adventure Travel to New Heights

It is said that it's difficult to find anyone who is not interested in traveling! Many people also find great pleasure in "Adventure Travel." Adventure travel is a trip that provides an unusual and exciting experience to the vacationer seeking that never to be forgotten vacation adventure. There are a great many kinds of experiences that fall under this category of travel and we have taken our role in the fascinating world of adventure travels very seriously.

A Little History on Adventure Travel Rentals. A Travel Aggregator is a company that makes a mission out of introducing the American vacationer to all this world has to offer for a fun-filled vacation of heart stopping adventure travel. By building a reputation on not only offering the traveler rentals like RV's, Snowmobiles and Jet Skies, but showing the adventure traveler the many options on where to go and how to turn their adventure vacation into a memorable one. As a long-time adventure traveler, I once envisioned the opportunity to help people throughout the US plan and execute that vacation by matching up the adventure traveler with a person who has all of the adventure "toys" to complete the vacation. Thousands of people have vacation "toys" just sitting around their house, gathering dust but we have solved that problem by showing Americans how to rent out their idle toys from the comforts of their home and even more importantly making money on an adventure toy that would otherwise sit unused. A traveler planning a trip to Yosemite during the winter may look to rent a rustic mountain cabin as well as a snowmobile to explore the vast trails and natural scenery. We can facilitate this entire process.

It's a wild wonderful world! Follow your heart and let the adventure begin. Repelling down the mountains of Arches National Park in Utah for some extreme camping, thrill seekers hiking the Bruce Trail in Bruce Peninsula National Park, or white water rafting in the Grand Canyon are all adventure vacations that are heart stopping yet they are also the type of vacations that make you feel young again! Because, after all, aren't we all trying to stop the march of time? At least that's what it feels like to be an adventure traveler, time has stood still while you gaze at and experience the very best America has to offer. America's 58 national parks are the jewels of the country. Escaping to a safe and peaceful wilderness setting has wide appeal for families seeking a stress-free vacation with a little or allot of adventure. Reserve a spot at one of the thousands of campgrounds in America, and you'll not only have a memorable time sleeping under the stars but you may come back a few years younger.

Try going off the beaten path to see the untamed vistas of Mount Moran in Wyoming's Grand Tetons, the fourth highest peak in the Tetons or the deep forests and majestic trees of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan. Surely, a sight never-to-be-forgotten. RV Travel is not what it used to be. In 2010, the RV turned 100 years old. Three prominent RV historians, renowned RV collector David Woodworth, RV/Motor Home Hall of Fame and Museum archivist Al Hesselbart, and Smithsonian Institution curator Roger White have cited 1910 as the start of the RV industry. Today some 82 million households now own RV's according to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. In 1936, Airstream came out with the Clipper, and America's adoration of this particular RV brand took shape. In 1952, RV manufacturers started to realize the marketing benefits of a whole home on wheels. RVs and trailers started to get bigger, and bigger... and bigger. RV travel has become the way families come together in an economical and flexible way to see this beautiful country for their family vacations. Whether they travel in a small trailer RV or a luxury RV Motorhome there is no denying it's one of the best ways to travel and see the countryside.

RV camping opportunities abound with more than 16,000 RV parks, campgrounds and resorts on America's public and private lands. Some of the most beautiful places in North America can be reached by RV's and the destinations are well worth the drive! How about, Mt. Desert Narrows Camping Resort, in Bar Harbor, Maine. This RV Camping Resort is known as the only national park in New England. The Leisure Resort on the San Marcos River in Texas offers full hook-up RV sites, a fenced pet park for Fido as well as pet-friendly trails, and a scenic riverfront. The Sunshine Key RV Resort and Marina is in Big Pine Key, Florida just some 38 miles from Key West. In the mood for a spa or golf vacation? Try The Great Outdoors RV Nature & Golf Resort Titusville, FL. This park is for the big guys, only 18' ft and longer are allowed. No pop-ups or tents allowed! Sam's Family Spa Hot Water Resort was built in 1971 on over 50 acres of selected desert property with underground hot mineral water springs. It is an RV park with all amenities to reserve in America. RV's have pumped in a new enthusiasm for this kind of camping. Luxury RV's like the Bounder Diesel have it all: a spacious floor plan with triple slide-outs, an impressive galley, comfy furnishings, four beds, and lots of storage. Its finishing touches include detailed molding and contemporary light fixtures making the RV feel like a home. Or is "Green" Rving more your thing? Try the first eco-friendly RV, the Ever-Lite by EverGreen, built with all composite, wood-free outside wall construction and all the design characteristics of an eco-friendly home.

Presenting a Beach Holiday With Nature

Enjoy a boat ride. Appreciate the beauty of Laiya from a distance by taking a boat ride out to sea. Accredited operators that provide daily boat trips down the shore can be found in the vicinity. Sail to see spectacular views of the coastline, or savor the impressive vistas of the horizon. You may also catch a glimpse of dolphins, sea turtles, and whale sharks during the tour.

Climb the highest mountain in town. If you're up for a more challenging nature adventure, climb Mt. Daguldol, the highest peak in San Juan. A breathtaking view of the sea and the provinces of Marinduque and Mindoro await on its summit. The mountain is considered as an easy hike because most of the trails here are forest paths that are shaded by towering trees. There are 3 major camp sites at the peak: the "Gulugod Baboy", an area covered with grass, "Niyogan", which sits near a coconut plantation, and "Anahawan", the highest spot of Mt. Daguldol.

See the giant fruit bats. An amazing sight when they are in flight, the giant fruit bats (Pteropus vampyrus) found in the province have a wing span of about a meter long. They are commonly found hanging in trees in a place called Parang Sili Dao. These mammals are already endangered, so the local government is doing its best to preserve and conserve the remaining species.

Watch the egg-laying sea turtles. Recently, the residents of San Juan discovered that the sea turtles (pawikan) are regular visitors on their shoreline. Scenes of pawikans laying their eggs on the long, sandy stretch of Laiya's coastlines have become regular to the locals, especially from the months of November to January. Today, a lot of tourists are drawn to this place to witness the hatching period of these endangered animals.

Explore its underwater world. Laiya is one of the richest diving sites in San Juan, Batangas. The natural sanctuaries in this region shelter diverse species of fish and other marine wildlife. Corals in various forms and colors are visible from the surface of the crystal-clear waters. To make the most of your underwater experience, rent a boat that will take you to the best diving spots. You can also check out some of the best beach resorts in Laiya that offer snorkeling packages.

Looking for the Best Places to Live in Florida

Aside from Hawaii, Florida is also a warm place to be in the United States during the cold months. This is the foremost reason why many would choose to have the best places to live in Florida and at the same time look for the best places to retire in Florida.
For people who are keen on having an active lifestyle, Florida is the place to be. There are many attractions that are waiting for eager patrons like theme parks that are truly incredible and the best in the whole world. The awesome ocean is great for water sports that varies from the simplest to the extreme. The younger generation would love to enjoy a good day in the beach, possible even during the winter season as it almost never snows in Florida beaches.
In Florida, there are many things to do that are perfect for the older people who are looking for the best places to retire in Florida.
1. They can go boating and fishing in numerous saltwater and freshwater fishing zones that are open all year long. World record catches are found in Florida so it is a given that fishing enthusiasts will definitely have a good time discovering what the state could offer.
2. The sandy beaches are perfect for afternoon lounges where you can freely relax and inhale the fresh scent of the sea.
3. They can go on a Caribbean or Bahamas cruise as they are just nearby tourist destinations.
4. The best places to live in Florida usually have access to parks that are meant to cater for health conscious individuals who wants to jog, walk, or simply relax at different times of the day.
Older people should consider looking for the best places to retire in Florida as this state has one of the most excellent health care programs. Because it is known to be the best place for the retirees, some of America's world- class health facilities and the best medical practitioners operate there with the aim of providing the best medical services they can give to their clients, especially the retirees who needs medical attention the most.
In Florida, the state does not collect for income tax. You get to keep all of your hard- earned money and spend it at your leisure. You will have more budget for living a comfortable life especially when you are the type who wants to reward oneself after doing all the hard work. There are even homestead tax exemptions which can be useful if you are found to be eligible for that.
So, for both young and old, one should consider moving to the best places to live in Florida. It is like having a year long vacation with no dull moments in between as you always have something to do during your free time. It wouldn't hurt to choose only what is best for you and your family right? After all, it is your choice as to where you would spend your lifetime and choosing Florida among other states could be the best choice.

The Benefits of Living in Beach Apartments

Finding a place to stay can be a challenging and time consuming process. Since there are so many properties available for you to choose from, you may want to take some time to determine what area you want to live in to help narrow down your options. If you are someone who loves the beaches and beautiful sunsets, you may want to consider living in beach apartments.
Instead of living in a place where the best view available to you is the crowded city skyline, you should think about staying somewhere where there is less noise, pollution and more peace and tranquility. You already have to deal with the stresses and frustrations of the world on a daily basis. But when the work day is over and it is time for you to come home, home is where you should be able to let everything go and relax. Beach apartments are located where everyone goes to relax and have some fun. One advantage you would have over everyone else is you won't have to travel just to enjoy the feel of the sand beneath your toes. Any time you want to feel the breeze and smell the water, you can simply open up your windows and let the nature in. Since you have some of the best views just outside of your doorstep, you can wake up every morning feeling refreshed.
In order to make your task of choosing between beach apartments much easier, you should do more than take a tour of the facilities. Take a trip to the beach as well. No two ocean fronts are exactly alike. Pay special attention to the area and the people you see. Take into consideration what amenities are close by. Do you have easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centers, malls and even freeways and highways? If you are looking for a place where you have tons of peace and quiet, you shouldn't have to gain that at the expense of being far away from civilization.
When you look at the living quarters, don't automatically assume that you are going to have quiet neighbors. Try to visit at times when most people are home; that is usually on the weekends and in the evenings. Inquire about what amenities the staff is including for you if you decide to lease from them. If you are being offered a really low rental amount per month, don't forget to take into consideration the cost of your utilities. Make sure that your rent and monthly utilities are something that you can afford comfortably. Try to find out what the average cost of utilities is from someone who lives there or you can go online and do a search for the averages. Ask to see different beach apartments from the rental property so you can decide on which one is best for your needs. Once you have decided on where you want to live, you can relax knowing that you have the best of both worlds.

Turn Off the Television and Find Some Things to Do

One of the biggest challenges that people in America face is turning off the television. Besides being honored with the stigma as the fattest nation in the world, we have also gained the title as the laziest. In an effort to help increase awareness and activeness, many organizations all over are coming up with things to do that will encourage people to want to get in shape by being active.
It is no secret that laziness and low amounts of physical activity can lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. In order to lessen your chances of developing them, you need to get off the couch and start moving. Just because you walk from the parking garage at your job to your desk doesn't mean you are getting enough exercise to make a difference. If you are spending more than an hour per day in front of the television, you are not as active as you should be. There are some things to do that will improve your physical health and make you feel much better about yourself.
If you work at a job where you sit at a desk, you should take frequent breaks. Stand up and stretch periodically throughout the day. Sitting for long periods of time is not healthy and can wreak havoc on your health. On your lunch break consider taking a fifteen minute walk to help get the circulation going to your lower extremities.
If you work at a job where you have to engage in large amounts of physical labor or stand for long periods of time, try not to stand in the same position. Move your feet and lift your legs periodically to keep the blood flowing and to prevent numbness. Make sure that you are lifting things properly. Don't attempt to lift something that is too heavy. Anything that you do lift, remember to lift with your knees and ask for help if something is too heavy.
If you have free time on the weekend, don't just sleep the day away. If you feel tired or are low energy, you need to get your body in shape so that you have more energy naturally. This means that you need to find some things to do outside of your of your home. Take a trip to your local museum and learn a little bit about the different cultures. See what activities they have going on that can help you meet and make new friends. Find out more information about stuff that you are interested in and increase your knowledge.
Go to the gym. Even if you don't plan on spending more than an hour working out, that hour is going a long way to improving your health. Initially you may be a little sore, however once your body adjusts to working out on a regular basis, you will find that you have a better mood, healthier body and improved physique. You will be more active because your body has more energy.
