The form of time traveling i'm speaking of is being in a craft or machine that is able to transport itself, crew and all parts intact through time space with great precision. First we would have to master the form(method) which I will term Looping. Only the only way that could happen is by mastering the method of being able to tell what time and date to appear and in what location is desired. For it to be able to move in the sky would be determined upon its shape. Then the best thing that comes to mind is the saucer shape. Look at the Frisbee, how it moves effortlessly through the air. This form would maybe also able to penetrate space time just as easily as it does in air.
The form of time traveling I always thought of is that the occupants would not be transported physically to a location like being beamed or sent through a worm hole. I always thought that we could build a machine that would be able to transport the machine itself to and through the past and to the future, with the occupants inside the machine, Instead of the energy being focused inwardly on the occupants, the energy would be focused outwardly on the shell of the machine. the shell would become the radiating source of energy itself used to time travel. When machine shifts from location a to location b. All occupants and parts would be shifted there intact with the machine itself.
True stoners will understand me.
Aint that the truth! yes I hear you in regards to a device, I think the best one really was the original HG Wells film, the Time Machine, an old fave of mine! he never left the house in his machine, it just all crumbled away around him when he traveled etc...
I don't know if it ever will become do-able tho... but, be neat if it could! I have no idea about the quantum level and time travel, quantum mechanics is enough for even a stoner to freak out with, or even the possibility of ripples in time in space...
But if it were a reality... I think Id just want to go to the future for a visit, we have the past pretty well recorded already, and I think Id like to know how I turned out in the end. If I didnt make it in the future, boy Id pull my sox up - in the here and now..that journey alone would do for me, but again theres a small issue, if I knew alls well for me in say 20 years...would that make me stop trying to do well now?
Im not sure how we would react or change (in the present) to see our future selves, and how that will affect our actions now... if I traveled to the future and saw myself locked up in jail for something bad... would I be ever vigilant NOW to be sure I lived a crime free life? Perhaps I would, but that's what in the future for me anyway! Or is it avoided just by knowing it?
Or is the future inevitable? Would knowing what lies before you - be a really good thing? Or would we lose our sense of passion and interest and enthusiasm for life NOW, if we knew in the end.. we have failed?
if you get my drift of course! now where's those zig-zags!
