##### Views on Temporal Shift
« on: March 01, 2015, 09:03:06 AM »
For you guys out there who don't know what a temporal shift is, its part of time travel, im just looking for some peoples views on how time travel may work...Because Im just trying to make the most accurate model possible for cause an effect...which as it currently looks, appears to also be able to estimate when something performs the first time travel (Because it will happen, time is infinite, space is infinite, thus possibilities and events are infinite)
Pretty much a quick explaination of the current cause an effect model is a load of hourglass shapes stacked ontop of eachother...each getting shorter. The widest points are when the timeline is most stable...and the thinnest points are when its most unstable, and changed from what it originally should have been. Currently its impossible to determine which event is a widepoint, and which is a thinpoint, though its possible to tell that a point is either an extremely thin point, or an extremely wide point (As we don't know what the original timeline would have been). When the hourglasses hit flat, thats when the timetravel happened, as its both a thin and widepoint at the same time. A Major problem with the model is it can't account for the butterfly effect... The first hourglass (longest one) is the time the person travelled to.
Currently identified as the most obvious thin/wide points are: 1)Extinction of dinosaurs     2)WW1/WW2+Economic Collapse
These are major events which had little or no run-up time and could never be predicted, yet the effect-time of them is nigh-infinite. Dinosaurs died out from whatever killed them (meteor?) yet lizards and such didn't. If dinosaurs died out then birds and lizards wouldn't-shouldn't exist. Now a meteor is thrown on its course by gravity, gravity and time are both very close (A net is always the best way to describe them, 1 direction of thread is time, the other is gravity...when gravity is pulled so is time...and theoretically...Visa versa) thus, if a meteor was thrown even the a tiny bit off course far enough away...the effects would be really different, like hitting an inhabited planet and causing mass extinction possibly? Now of course, its impossible to work out timetravel yet really...Just to work out when it happens is as far as science is going to get for a good time considering the gap between point 1 and 2 (mentioned up a bit) but the degrading rate could be much faster...actually making timetravel closer...Its hard to tell yet until a 3rd thin/thick point is found...Possibly the next thin/thick point (opposite to point 2) is when world economy picks up...Because its happening quite quickly...and is in essence the inversion to the economic collapse...Theres also a lot less war...opposing to ww1/ww2.
Autism can allow so much joy, and at the same time sadness to be seen. Our world is weird, and full of contradiction everywhere, yet somehow at moments seems to come together, and make near perfect sense.

Back to the Future rules or Terminator rules.

Far enough.
