This Interactive Timeline Helps Make Sense of Avengers: Endgame’s Time Travel Logic

Posted by in category: time travel

Time travel is complicated, which means it’s time for some charts.

I’m particularly fond of this one, created by fan Oren Bell. In an elaborate, detailed interactive timeline, Bell explores the various realities created by the actions of the Avengers in Avengers: Endgame, tracing the actions of each protagonist and their impact on the timeline(s). Simply click a character, and you can follow their journey, from the present to the past to the present again.

How to build a teleportation machine: Teleportation protocol

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, time travel

I was hoping to post this earlier, but a heavy dose of writer’s block set in (I met a girl, and no, this blog didn’t help — but she is a physicist!) I also got lost in the rabbit hole that is quantum teleportation. My initial intention with this series of posts was simply to clarify common misconceptions and to introduce basic concepts in quantum information. However, while doing so, I started a whirlwind tour of deep questions in physics which become unavoidable as you think harder and deeper about quantum teleportation. I’ve only just begun this journey, but using quantum teleportation as a springboard has already led me to contemplate crazy things such as time-travel via coupling postselection with quantum teleportation and the subtleties of entanglement. In other words, quantum teleportation may not be the instantaneous Stargate style teleportation you had in mind, but it’s incredibly powerful in its own right. Personally, I think we’ve barely begun to understand the full extent of its ramifications.

I wanted to have a long running post where i will be tracking serious papers about time travel

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, quantum physics, time travel

Also, loosely following technology that could be used to build a real working time machine. Anyone with an interest in time travel is welcome to participate.

But, I have been watching tech news for what could be used to build a time machine. I think we are pretty close. You’d still need a few physics guys with 150+ IQ’s to work on the equations, a guy with a 200+ IQ to figure out how to put the whole thing together, and a guy with billions of dollars to fund it. But most of this stuff is for sale to the public, (short list):

1. quantum computer; to run the calculations.

The Physics of Time: D-Theory of Time & Temporal Mechanics — Instant Bestseller on Amazon | Press Release

Posted by in categories: physics, time travel

Instant Bestseller on Amazon, The Physics of Time is an easy but incredibly profound and in many ways astounding read for those interested in the subjects such as the nature of time, experiential temporality, time travel, the physics of information, and philosophy of time. “Time is a moving image of eternity.” This is the opening quote by Plato to volume 2 of The Science and Philosophy of Information series. And here’s the passage from the book: “Time seems to be moving for us in one direction in a linear, incremental fashion which is not a result of immutable physical laws but rather their probabilistic interpretation — things are said to get messier overtime, to move from more orderly states, towards more entropy, disorderly states. However, a growing number for physicists now regard entropy as a measure of information, [i.e. complexity] not of ”messiness.” https://www.ecstadelic.net/top-stories/the-physics-of-time-d…ss-release #PhysicsofTime #LifeboatFoundation

Ecstadelic Media Group releases a new non-fiction book The Physics of Time: D-Theory of Time & Temporal Mechanics by Alex M. Vikoulov, Antonin Tuynman PhD as a Kindle ebook (Press Release, San Francisco, CA, USA, May 22, 2019 11.00 AM PST)

Why it is dangerous to build ever larger big bang machines

CERN has revealed plans for a gigantic successor of the giant atom smasher LHC, the biggest machine ever built. Particle physicists will never stop to ask for ever larger big bang machines. But where are the limits for the ordinary society concerning costs and existential risks?

CERN boffins are already conducting a mega experiment at the LHC, a 27km circular particle collider, at the cost of several billion Euros to study conditions of matter as it existed fractions of a second after the big bang and to find the smallest particle possible – but the question is how could they ever know? Now, they pretend to be a little bit upset because they could not find any particles beyond the standard model, which means something they would not expect. To achieve that, particle physicists would like to build an even larger “Future Circular Collider” (FCC) near Geneva, where CERN enjoys extraterritorial status, with a ring of 100km – for about 24 billion Euros.

Experts point out that this research could be as limitless as the universe itself. The UK’s former Chief Scientific Advisor, Prof Sir David King told BBC: “We have to draw a line somewhere otherwise we end up with a collider that is so large that it goes around the equator. And if it doesn’t end there perhaps there will be a request for one that goes to the Moon and back.”

“There is always going to be more deep physics to be conducted with larger and larger colliders. My question is to what extent will the knowledge that we already have be extended to benefit humanity?”

Doctoral Student Just Published a Paper Describing How Time Travel Would Be Possible

Posted by in categories: cosmology, physics, time travel

And how to build a time machine.

The concept of time travel has always captured the imagination of physicists and laypersons alike. But is it really possible? Of course it is. We’re doing it right now, aren’t we? We are all traveling into the future one second at a time.

But that was not what you were thinking. Can we travel much further into the future? Absolutely.

5 Sci-Fi Books Biotech Geeks Should Read Right Now

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI, space travel, time travel

From space colonization to resurrection of dinosaurs to machine intelligence, the most awe-inspiring visions of humanity’s future are typically born from science fiction.

But among an abundance of time travel, superheroes, space adventures, and so forth, biotech remains underrepresented in the genre.

This selection highlights some outstanding works (new and not so new) to fill the sci-fi gap for biotech aficionados.
