Is Time Travel Possible?


I said that I would give time travel further consideration in my paper on what Time truly is. My theory of Time dealt with time dimensions and how our concept of time is different from the reality of time. This, true time, includes the motions that we measure with time and my belief that the fourth dimension of time can actually be divided up into the 4th,5th, 6th, and 7th dimensions of time. I had to consider the possibility of time travel in that discussion, but I never made an formal claims. I have now formulated a hypothesis based upon what I believe our concept of time travel is as it relates to true time (All 4 time dimensions).


It is tempting to believe that time travel is somehow possible. I myself would be lying if I said that I wished there was no such possibility of time travel. The thought is far to tempting to want to believe anything else to the contrary. After giving it much thought, I am 99.9% sure that time travel is not possible and I base this on the following argument.

In order to fully grasp this hypothesis I must first describe how the human race perceives time. It is this perception that has lead to the belief that time travel should or could be possible. I use the analogy of the digital recorder that is so popular with Direct Television or Tivo. This technology simply digitally records a program and then allows you to access that information at any time. You can rewind during the show, fast forward up to a point, or save it to watch at another time. When we eventually watch our show, we are in a sense, traveling back in time. That is to say that a past event, the show, has been recorded and can then be played back later. This allows your mind to experience a segment of time that has already occurred. This is very much the same as how our brain works. The past is nothing more than a collection of our memories. Every event that we have experienced up until the present is stored in our brain whether we can remember it or not. This is the digital recording. Our brain has taken in information and saved it for later use. The future is nothing more than our ability to conceive of future events. I wonder what studies in the area of psychology have been done on this subject. I would have to believe that it is our past that allows our brain to conceive of a future. We know that events have happened so it is reasonable to assume that we can use the creative side of our brain to try and formulate what could happen in the future. This is slightly different from making plans. A person can plan to go to dinner on Saturday with a friend. This is simply a matter of our ability to conceive that another Saturday will come, because we have had reoccurring Saturdays in the past. So, we know that eventually it will be Saturday again. So, we plan to have dinner on that day at some predetermined time. We then commit that appointment to memory, so we can make the date. We can’t exactly count this as foretelling the future, because sometimes we forget the plans we make. By making the plans we increase the likelihood that the event will take place. I guess this leaves us with two ways our brain looks at the future. There is the creative future, where we may dream about or conceive of what events we would like to come about; and there is the Planned future, where we make a plan, commit it to memory, and try to make sure we are there to see the outcome of that future event.

This is how we conceive of our reality. We are born and our brain begins taking in all sorts of information. We commit this to memory for later use. I would assume that memory is merely a remonence of our survival instinct. It used to be that our parents would teach us the things we needed to survive. We also committed as much as we could to memory. If we didn’t then we simply died. Our parents would show us that leopards are bad. If we didn’t have the ability to commit things to memory then we may try to pet the leopard later and get eaten. That is bad. In order to survive we had to rely on our memory so that we could tell what we should or should not do based upon the situation presented to us. Fast forward thousands of years and we come to a point in our history where our standard of living has removed us from those leopard like situations. Now we are faced with a new challenge, surviving in a technological and hectic world. The new lessons are, work to get paid so we can eat and have a home. If you do not do these things then you end up homeless, starve, and die. A new set of survival information that has to be committed to memory. No other species has come as far as we have. They still have to rely on the good old leopard method or True Primal survival instincts.

Our environment and lifestyle has changed but our old abilities remain. Our ability to learn and commit things to memory is still with us. We now find ourselves faced with having to find new and varied things to commit to memory. We have education, and careers, social interactions, entertainment, sports, etc. etc. The list goes on and on. We have so much more to commit to memory and it seems that our memory and brain has adapted to allow us to handle this new life style. Our brains have grown larger and along with it our ability to cram more information in to that brain for storage. Along with all of these new things to commit to memory comes our concept of time. We can conceive of a past, because our past is committed to memory. Whether we can recall it or not, the information is still in our brain. From the day we are born we are storing this information to call upon throughout our life. We draw on these past experiences to conceive of a future or to make plans for the future. All the while the only true reality is the present. This point in time.

What I am saying is that the time line itself is nothing more than a memorized past coupled with an imagined future. That is all. The reality is that the present is all there is. In this present events are occurring all across the universe based upon the laws of physics. Events take place based upon these laws and it is why we see a cup fall to the ground and break instead of the other way around. Can you remember the last time you saw a broken cup fall upward and piece itself back together as it lands upright on the kitchen table? No, just as we have never seen a bunch of leaves fall upward and attach themselves back onto a tree. Events progress in a certain manner. Cause and Effect. If we remove human beings from the equation and look at other animals and objects. No doubt a dog has a concept of time, but do plants? Animals have a concept of time, because they need to call upon past events in order to survive emerging events. Their concept is no where near as developed as ours, I wonder how close an elephants or a dolphins concept of time is? Better still, I wonder how a chimpanzee or a gorilla conceives time? I am sure that their concept is different than ours, less evolved and more primitive. It still serves them for survival. Let us now consider a rock. What is this rocks concept of time? I would have to bet that it has no concept of time. It doesn’t need one, because a rock does not have to survive. No survival means no memory. No memory, means no concept of time let alone anything else. It is that way with any object that has no need for survival, because it is not alive. An asteroid floating through space was set upon a path based upon an interaction. If another body were to come along and strike it then that asteroid would move in some new direction until gravity or another object dictates otherwise. I assure you that the asteroid has no concept of time, of anything for that matter. It is not alive so does time not exist for that asteroid? No, time exists. It exists because the asteroid is in motion. It is undergoing a series of events that are determined by the forces that have acted upon it. Since there is motion then there is time, because the asteroids motions can be measured. I explain this concept further in my paper on my theory of time.

Another analogy I like is this; “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?” This analogy perfectly illustrates the difference between reality and human conceptions. Does it make a sound? Yes, it does make a sound. What is the definition of sound? Webster’s New World Dictionary defines it as; 1) that which is heard, resulting from stimulation of auditory nerves by vibrations (sound waves) in the air ; 2) the distance within which a sound may be heard ; 3) the mental impression produced /the sound of his report/

The funny thing is that the above definitions are also concepts that fit within what we believe terms to mean. What I am saying is that these words I am typing would not exist if the human race did not exist. The first definition is the most useful, because it points out the difference between reality and conception. “That which is heard, resulting from stimulation of auditory nerves by vibrations” We can conclude from this that the falling tree is not heard. If no one is there to hear, than how can it be heard? What we need to consider here are the facts. A tree falls. The trunk breaking releases energy and the tree hitting the ground and anything on the way down also releases energy. This energy sets the air molecules around it in motion. This sound waves moves outward as the energy is dispersed in all directions. Eventually the sound wave will dissipate, because the energy will be lost along the way. We have to consider these two words, sound, and heard. The falling tree is not heard because no one is there to receive the sound waves. The sound waves still exist based upon how we perceive the travel of sound through the air. So, yes the falling tree makes a sound, but it is not heard.

The 1%

I hope that all you have read up until this point has allowed you to attain a clearer picture of the world around us and how we perceive the world around us. The universe would still go on being the universe whether humans do or do not exist. We know the universe existed before humans so it is reasonable to assume that it would still exist if we did not. So now let us move onto the other 1%. The possibility that time travel is possible. Under what circumstances could we achieve time travel? I will start with the speed of light. The magical notion that by traveling faster than the speed of light then we will somehow be able to travel backwards or forwards in time. Light is a part of the universe, not the master of it. If we were in a ship and traveled faster than the speed of light and we were some how able to maintain our structural integrity then, what? We would get to where we were going a lot faster. We would, however; not pass through time.

Business Blogging Resources For The Little Business That Could

Blogging is the action you perform when you make a post to a web log or blog, comment on a previous blog post or maintain a blog. Many people who make posts to a blog on a regular basis are referred to as bloggers.

Basically, a blog is an online journal where you can post your thoughts, observations and comments about a particular topic that the weblog covers. A blog is just a simple web page that has chunks of information called posts added to them on a regular basis. Depending on how it was setup by the person maintaining the blog, the posts can be all on one page forcing visitors to scroll down, or each post will have its own individual web page. When you are blogging and visiting different blogs, you will see the most recent posts first at the top of the web page.

The Uses of Blogging

Online personal journals were some of the first blogs. Individuals used their computers and the technology of the internet to make entries into their journals rather than the traditional method of keeping a pen and paper journal. Blogs are primarily categorized as personal since many of them are online journals but today many blogs are used for a variety of purposes. Businesses are starting to use blogs as a way to provide information about their products and services. Politicians are using blogs to communicate with their constituents.

Blogging Software and Services

Originally, blog posts are mostly text based. However, changes in internet technology and online services have given rise to other ways to make posts such as using video and audio (also known as podcasting). Now today a typical blog will have a combination of text, photos, video, and audio as well as links to other blogs and websites that are related to the topic of the blog.

Blogging has taken off and grown in popularity over the years. Now, a blog can be setup in a matter of minutes with little or no cost.

How Blogging Benefits You

Blogging has been mostly been used for personal thoughts, professional observations, political rants, and entertainment reviews. However, there are so many more reasons to start blogging. One of the biggest benefits I have found is staying connected with my family and friends. I live on the west coast but grew up on the east coast. Through blogging, my family and I are able to stay connected and share things even though we live thousands of miles apart. We can share photos and post videos and audio files that let us remain a part of each other’s lives.

Through your blog, you can share with the world your thoughts about any topic you like. Having a blog is one of the easiest ways to stay in contact with others and communicate with others who have the same interests that you do. Everyone has something to say and wants to be heard when they say it. Blogging allows you to share your experiences, joys, laughter and pain. With a blog, you can find answers to your questions, learn new, exciting and wonderful things, comfort a friend or be comforted at times. Remember, the benefits that can come from having a blog are as wide and varied as the different topics that a blog can cover.


8 Topmost Ways to Successful Blogging

I’ve been on a blog commenting blitz lately and boy oh boy is it working.

I’ve spent time really putting in the effort to check out other people’s blogs, read their content, and make real genuine comments.

I set aside anywhere from 1-2 hours daily to frequent these blogs and give my input.

Not only have I learned so much through the stories of other bloggers, I genuinely enjoy reading about other people’s tips, successes, and failures with online business.

And even better I have also seen a boost in my daily traffic to my blog.

All through blog commenting.

It’s amazing the results got so far since really going hard to implement this strategy into my daily routine.

If you have a blog or website one of the best ways to increase your traffic should be done through blog commenting.

Experimenting With Blog Commenting

Through different forums I heard a lot of people express how well the strategy works to improve a blog’s performance.

Initially, experimenting with it as a link building tactic on high traffic blogs I began blog commenting mainly for SEO purposes.

On the days I performed these link building tactics I began seeing spikes of traffic to my website.

Not only did my traffic increase, but people were actually commenting on my blog and leaving engaging blog comments.

You see, if you comment on do follow blogs you have to enter your name, email, and website.

When you leave a comment on someone else’s blog it gets linked back to your website.

By leaving quality and engaging comments on the posts people generally want to learn about you and come to check out your blog.

Not only do you borrow other bloggers traffic, you also increase the strength of your blog in the search engines through building quality backlinks.

Blog Commenting With A Purpose

There are many bloggers online who blog just to make money.

They post links for affiliate products all over the web and write inconsistent posts while never taking the time to interact and build relationships with PEOPLE.

One thing I’ve learned about blogging is the importance of networking.

Blogging done correctly is a people business built through relationships.

Really being interested in people and showing them that you care through solving problems and creating lasting friendships.

If you come into this business only focused on money I guarantee you will not succeed.

The money is a result of the work and value you provide to your market.

Building the Right Relationships

If you’re going to spend time on blog commenting then do it the right way.

Bloggers appreciate it when you participate on their blogs.

You help to build their community and many bloggers will often return the favor if they feel your comments are genuine.

They should be informative, from the heart, and respectful.

Tips For Choosing Walking Shoes

When choosing walking shoes, it’s important to know the basics of a walking shoe, as knowing this information will help you choose a shoe that will benefit both your foot health and improve your walking performance. Here are some basic tips and information for choosing a good pair:

Walking Shoes Design

The mechanics of walking shoe designs are geared towards helping the foot bear the stress of impact and balance the weight of the entire body during walking. If you’re on your feet for long periods using inappropriate walking shoes, you might even experience unusual pain in your back or calves. The science of walking shoe design takes into account the different foot types to ensure maximum support and comfort for flat feet, normal feet, or high-arched feet.

For each foot type, shoe designers add features to enhance efficiency, correct poor mechanics, protect the feet from injuries and to provide optimal stability. Shoes for walking for flat feet have medial posts or devices like the ROLLBAR for greater stability and mechanical correction. These are often called stability or motion control shoes. Normal feet are best suited with neutral-cushioning and stability shoes which offer low-to-moderate stability with cushioning and higher flexbility. High-arched feet are better off with flexible, highly cushioned shoes for impact absorption.

Different Shoes for Different Needs

Apart from comfort and overall support, walking shoes have extra added features to suit the needs of serious athletes, occasional walkers, and fitness walkers. Generally, your choice in walking shoes should have low and stable heels and generous toe room. When shopping for the best fitting walking shoes, focus on function rather than the form and it is to your advantage if you have different sets of walking shoes to allow for decompression after all that walking. Shoes have to take a break, too.

After your foot type, you should consider where you will be wearing your shoes. Will you be walking on smooth pavements or rough roads? Will you be walking on your treadmill? Are you on the heavy side? Take these things into consideration, too:

o Motion control shoes are for people with extra weight. This shoe type gives excellent support but has a thicker, more stable heel. These are typically heavier and less flexible.

o Stability shoes are for people with normal or average feet. These shoes have great combinations of cushioning and support.

o Cushioned shoes give extra comfort for people with high arches. High arches have minimal capacity for shock absorption, hence, extra cushion support is needed to protect the feet from injury.

o Racewalking shoes are lightweight and can take on higher speeds but they are not as durable and offer less support and stability than other walking shoes.

o Outdoor walking and hiking shoes are sturdier than sneakers and offer superior traction and protection from the elements.

Fitting and Material

Your shoes should have a comfortable fit and should be flexible to allow for various walking motions. Ensure a good fit by buying shoes in the afternoon when your feet have swelled to its widest size. Also, test the shoes with sport socks on because these socks take up space. Consider mesh styles if your feet sweat too much. These are lighter and give more ventilation. For wet weather, walking footwear with waterproof-treated leather and synthetic uppers are perfect.


Who Makes the Best Replacement Windows?

The best replacement windows vary depending on the kind/type of window being replaced.

Be cautious when choosing a replacement

When replacing any window in your home you need to be sure that the replacement will be durable enough and that its construction will aid in longevity. The use of super spacers to prevent leakage of gases between panes will be an important part of ensuring that your windows last. Many companies take a short cut by not using super spacers and substitute them with metal spacers instead. The higher end units tend to utilize super spacers and for good reason. They prevent an otherwise 10% leakage per year that you’ll experience when using metal spacers.

They manufacture the Renewal series of windows which uses a material containing more than 38% reclaimed wood fiber known as Fibrex. They’re a good company if you want to install wood windows, although be forewarned; wood windows are not the best option if you live in climates that receive a lot of rainfall like the Northwest. They require much more maintenance than vinyl windows.


They have certainly left their mark in the replacement window industry and are a large firm with many innovative strategies to be credited for. They manufacture various products and have a long line of options from siding to windows.

Tips for Making a Soccer Pennant From the Comfort of Your Home

It’s tons of fun to make your own football pennants. However, you can enjoy making one yourself only if you know how to go about it. In this guide, we are going to teach you how to make one step by step. Therefore, let’s get to the point and check out the entire process. Read on to find out more.

Get a Ready-Made Pennant

First of all, you should take inspiration from an actual pennant to get started. It’s even better if you get some pennant felt too. Your next move is to do the number cutting. Make sure one number is a little bit smaller compared to the previous number so you can create a layered look.

The purpose of doing so is to make sure that are pennant will have the right sized numbers. In fact, if the shape is right, consider that the job is almost done. The next stage involves stitching the pennant.


It’s better to stitch the upper side and then right and left side of the rectangle to the left side for creating a rod pocket, which you can use for the dowel.

You can get dowel rods inexpensively. Typically, the price of one piece is below one dollar. If you don’t have a big budget, this is good news for you. Don’t forget to buy multiple pieces of dowel as you may end up ruining some during the DIY project.

For cutting the pieces, using a branch trimmer or other tools is a good idea. If you are making one for your lovely child, the length should be shorter. The reason is that short pennants are easy to use for kids as they are lightweight and easy to carry.

The dowel should be fixed in the pocket in a way that it should not go out of control the first time it is used. For this purpose, it’s important that you create marks on the endpoints using a special marker like a sharpie marker.

Use Duct Tape

Next, you should use a 6-inch long piece of duct tape and cut it into two pieces. Now, you should wrap the tape around the marked points, and wrap the other piece of duct tape around it.

The role of the outer strips is to create the stopping force for the strip. Therefore, the strip won’t slide up or down. The internal strip is there to offer the best grip for holding the rod pocket. Therefore, it will help you handle the pennant better. And this is quite important.

Also, make sure that the grip is not too tight or you may find it really had to remove the dowel after the season is over. One pennant can be used for more than one season. So, you won’t have to make one again down the road.

In short, if you want to make a soccer pennant from the comfort of your home, we suggest that you follow this guide. The steps explained in this article will make it easier for you to get the job done.

South Korea Makes a Move to Legitimizing Blockchain Further to Unify Policy

South Korea is one step closer into legitimizing blockchain in the country. According to reports, the South Korean government has started drafting a number of new industry classification standards to govern the country’s blockchain sector.

On the road for unifying blockchain

Specifically, three Korean government ministries are working together to finalize the new blockchain industry’s classificatory scheme. The Ministry of Information and Communication, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the National Statistical Office are expected to produce the final draft by the end of July 2018.

The scheme will help provide the basis for making policies concerning “blockchain promotion and regulatory frameworks.” It will also cover areas such as cryptocurrency exchanges, transactions, decentralized applications (DApps) development, and blockchain systems construction. The draft will also classify cryptocurrency exchanges as crypto asset exchange and brokerage. This is very important as previously crypto exchanges were considered as “communication vendors.” Now, they can be considered as regulated financial institutions.

Easing blockchain regulations

Things are looking up for blockchain further as the South Korean government targets a more relaxed approach. Previously, the Financial Services Commission (FSC) imposed a ban on ICOs, as officials were worried about the adverse effects of cryptocurrencies, going as far as to say that cryptocurrencies might corrupt the nation’s youth.

The FSC is considered the Korean regulatory authority overseeing blockchain policy. It is also the governing body of the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), which has since reconsidered its cryptocurrency regulatory policy.

“The FSC made revisions to its rules to apply strengthened policies in order to prevent or detect money laundering and illegal activities because the regulator isn’t opposed to cryptocurrencies,” The Korea Times quoted an official.

“Establishing unified rules is a complicated issue given the broader range of assessments between government agencies. This is why the country needs close international cooperation as it is still in the early stages of fine tuning guidelines,” claimed another official.

That being said, South Korea is reportedly following the policies set by the G-20 nations, an international forum for governments and central bank governors. Top financial policymakers of G-20 member countries have agreed to recognize and regulate cryptocurrencies as financial assets. While South Korea has yet to do the same, its move to ease cryptocurrency regulations will likely become beneficial to other nations that are warming up to the blockchain industry, as major exchanges are now looking to expand further into international markets in plans to offer blockchain-based services in the Asian region.

Using Glass in Your Entry

While a solid wood door offers many advantages, including aesthetic appeal, privacy, and energy efficiency, the use of glass in an entry unit also offers many advantages. Most obvious among them is to enhance the look of your door unit and to allow light to shine through.

There is a myriad of choice for glass. Many customers, over the years have opted for simple clear tempered glass. This is merely the standard single sheet of glass which allows for the maximum amount of light to shine through and has the advantage of being the least costly option. Tempered glass is manufactured by sending the glass through a set of rollers into an oven that is often heated up to 720 Celsius. It is then rapidly cooled and results in a product that is stronger and when broken shatters into many small pieces. This effect is necessary for safety reasons. Virtually all modern building codes require the use of tempered glass if it is above a certain size. Typical thickness availability for this type glass is 1/8 inch, 3/16 inch, and 1/4 inch.

Tinted tempered glass is similar to clear tempered, differing only that as its name suggests, it has a distinctive tint to it. Commonly seen are amber, grey, blue, and green tints.

Low E, or low emissivity glass is a special type of tempered glass that takes into consideration the reflection of radiant infrared energy. This glass is coated on one or more surfaces with a special material often composed of a metallic oxide compound. It keeps radiant heat on the same side as the glass but allows light from the visible spectrum to pass through. Thus it is more energy efficient. Low E glass is produced to result in various “r values”, an expressed ratio measuring the efficiency of insulation.

Beveled glass is also a tempered glass product when used as glass panes. Having an edge (not perpendicular) that has been ground into a bevel, this type of glass has the same strength advantage as clear tempered glass but the additional advantage of having a “little sparkle” adding interest to your door unit. A typical size beveled edge is 1 1/4 inches for the most common application. Bevels are often found in “true divided light” or “french style doors.”

Textured glass is another category of tempered glass. It is produced with a pattern or surface texture. It is equally as strong as clear tempered glass, but it also affords some privacy depending on the texture. If you have a shower door in your home it is quite likely to be some form of tempered textured glass. Some common textures are rain, spraylite, glue chip, and glacier.

It is common (and recommended) for tempered glass to be found in an insulated configuration. Normally two pieces of tempered glass are washed to be optically clear. An adhesive sealant is applied to a spacer and the glass pressed against the spacers. A dessicant material is also used between the panes to remove any trace of humidity. Some manufacturers have developed specific processes that combine the spacer and desiccant material. While air is normally trapped between the two pieces of glass, an inert gas such as argon may be used to increase the “r value” of the unit. Insulated glass units have been in use since the 1930s and provide better insulation properties than just a single piece of clear tempered. While not often considered, insulated glass units also provide acoustic insulation, helpful to a home owner who lives near an airport, or busy street. Low E, bevels, and textured glass may also be used in the creation of an insulated unit.

Hurricane impact glass is an extra strong (and thick) glass product that has been produced to meet building codes found in such places as Miami-Dade County, Florida. Two sheets of glass usually 1/4 inch thick are laminated together to produce a glass that will on impact allow for the broken pieces to adhere to the plastic vinyl laminate layer. Hurricane glass can be produced with low E and tinted glass.

Art glass is another category. In general it is not available as a tempered product and is used in the manufacture of leaded glass door inserts and windows. Art glass has been produced since ancient times and has typically been made by introducing various metal oxides into molten glass resulting in a colored or “stained” glass. Of course not all art glass is “stained glass”. Much of it is clear with varying textures. A glass artisan must hand cut each individual piece of glass to shape. Then these pieces are put together, again by hand, using a caming material, typically lead, but sometimes brass or copper foil, in the construction of a window with a discernible pattern or design. Often elaborate sparkling bevel clusters are incorporated into the design adding additional impact. These bevels differ from the tempered bevels in that they are smaller and normally have only a one half inch beveled edge.

Leaded glass has the supreme advantage of beauty and elegance. The amount of designs that can be produced are infinite, allowing a product to be created that is truly unique in all the world.

Stained glass windows have been produced for centuries. Evidence remains of stained glass windows from 7th century Britain. Reaching it’s height as an art form during the middle ages, many churches had windows produced that essentially presented stories from the Bible in visual form since there was not widespread literacy at the time. Today the ones that have survived are considered to be priceless works of art.

Leaded art glass by itself has less strength than tempered glass but it can be sandwiched between two sheets of clear tempered or even low E to provide the same benefits as insulated glass. Most of the leaded glass inserts we build here are produced in this configuration, We strongly recommend it for our customers in area with harsh winters.
