Ever wish you could travel backward in time and do things differently? Good news: the laws of physics seem to say traveling backward in time is the same as traveling forwards. So why do we seem to be stuck in this inexorable flow towards the future? It's time to begin our journey towards really understanding time.

  • I find it very difficult to see time as something separated from things. For me, time is the duration of things. One day is the sum of the duration of 1440 minutes. If things didn't exist, including consciousness and space, there would be no way for time to be. Time does not exist by itself as space does. Time does not pass, you pass.

  • I don't know about that .when I was a kid I felt like I been here by feeling but not by meamory. There we where at a friend's house as kids there was a power cut I could feel people emoshions . But strangely there faces disaperd with the feelings of opening my eyes I somehow came back to a memory and awoken in a matter of seconds I was living in the past that I knew by a photo had past . But I was in this place where I know by a photo had past . It's like you been took from the future but replaced in the past you sence and feel thing by a odd evaporation feeling . Two separate times the past we had candles because of a power cut . I seen the photo of the memory .but in the future we where a little older and one minute your with family freinds and there's another power cut years apart so you don't think take thinking out but feel some how when the power cut went out at family freinds from a blink of my eyes my feelings took me back to a memory in s photo . But I've always been like that . Wakeing up in a little girls room not knowing who those blood people are and you have three sisters a dad blood mum. There's no memory's as in mine .some how you wing it you have a beat Freind who you can't remember a man calling you . Like a mashine. Who as to reconnect . No you live on a false program of inhabtince sadly if you where an individual you know logically you would not tolreat s**it because who you are does not add up if you revice things . You ever felt reborn but backwards like the future present and the past is an elushion sorry I can't spell the right sound to the word I'm looking for. Some times you can close your eyes at the dentist and some how tap into a memory that's not yours and half way through having a fill in the dentist is trying to wake you up but your in a dream a boy with he's dad and a plane . I couldn't understand why I fell asleep intell next time I was early and blimey I looked at the new but old magazines planes . And was like who's interested in planes weirdly they where the man's from the dentist with the power drill in my gob. You ever felt three way angles you close your eyes and feel your self but your body is logicaly in the bed but you feel your self feeling vibreations like your a feeling In the corner of the room but you sence feelings from where .any way you turn on the light spider three times like you close your eyes but your behind your self and turn on the ligh another spider . You could be in your room and drawn to feelings pen and the like your stepping in to the feeling of a souls meamory and right and hand it to who you feel connected to by feeling of meamory. You are in your room but you close your eyes it's like you close your eyes but you open them your down stairs with out a body and it's like it's a place that as no place in time logically your body is in the room but but some how your in same house but different there's no vibreation only to the connection to your body that getting back your drawn to s feeling somethink coming .but also your mind starts to think and your senceing an odd connection with feelings someyhinks comeing. Your floating with out the exsistince of a body or meamories. Your at the door entrance seen where logicaly your body is so .but you connected with the mind your feeling where your standing but it's not possible . Your seen where your body is but your not dead . But your mind is a weak but your feeling your self at the door way.

  • Time travel to the past is impossible because entropy ALWAYS increases. Time travel to the future is, however, plausible.

    Ragnar RagnarökRagnar Ragnarök27 päivää sitten
  • 6:40 Matt says that entropy does not care about the direction of time, as it will most likely increase over time either way, however when you look at the whole picture of the process, you clearly see there is a direction on which adjacent time steps lead to increasing entropy, which would be the preferred direction of the universe. So... does that imply that the universe has " " " knowledge " " " of the whole picture of the interactions that happened and will happen in the future, and so it knows that our current "forward" time arrow is the one that increases the entropy the most? Does that mean that the whole information of every single interaction is encoded in the fabric of the universe and the imbalance in entropy between the beginning and end of the universe itself leans the scale towards the direction time takes currently? A.K.A. Does the arrow of time depend on a difference of GLOBAL states of the universe or LOCAL states? If the universe does not " " " know " " " about all these interactions forehand, if " " " it " " " makes a "decision" at every single time-step and so it happens that the preferred direction always end up being the one that maximizes entropy in the average, wouldn't that mean that space-time fabric could bend over itself locally at those places where entropy is decreasing? That is: wherever a local cluster is created, time would have to locally go "backwards" to match the preferably direction of maximum entropy increase? If space in space-time fabric can bend locally (i.e., by gravity), can time does so too?

  • The reason for the ‘arrow of time’ is defined by the lowest temporal dimension, that of functional information, an ‘arrow’ of temporal flow is needed for operational order to remain preserved at the lowest level, and causality at the higher levels It’s technically inescapable, as one will still travel ‘forward’ in that temporal dimension when traveling ‘backward’ through higher temporal dimensions This ends up handling all the temporal paradoxes that occur, as one will never end up in an earlier state of the previous timeline they were in, regardless of how accurate the time travel mechanism This occurs once you consider time and space to be interwoven at the lower dimensions, which interlace upward to where we are dimensionally Simply put: the basic function dimensions of the universe require an arrow to preserve that functionality

  • I've never heard such a succinct explanation of the reasons for using "labels" to describe something. They are useful if everyone understands what the label represents, and not so useful in describing the variations of that label. It's similar in that way to any other word with one or more complex definitions.

  • NOOOO!!! Time is abstract. Its a dimension. Dimensions are abstract. Please tell me you, a professional scientist, understands this!! They exists in our minds only to reference (calibrate and index) the underlying objective reality. Time references Change. The ONLY empirical evidence of 'time passing' is Change happening. Time is abstract, Change is real. And Change is quantum specific. Time doesn't flow...Change events happen for this 'flow'....there are hence zillions of 'Arrows of Change' but no universal 'Arrow of Time'. And the Block Universe is utter nonsense!! Why do you hypothesis using Time when you admit to not really know what Time is?? How does that work. Stop thinking Time, think quantum change events. Understand the proper meaning of the words you use!!

  • You assume time that we experience is one way ,50% of matter is actually anti-matter going backwards in time. From a low entropy state it will increase with change in time,entropy itself is does not have a preferred direction. A way to describe the illusion of asymmetry of both matter and time.

  • I have a legitimate question. Is it scientifically possible for someone's soul, or consciousness, to leave their currently aged human based avatar and jump back to a younger version of themselves? Kind of like a video game avatar in that if I play a game, and I reboot the game to an earlier point in the timeline, I am jumping into a younger version of the self, but I retain the experiences, and ideas and memories from that future avatar. It enables me to play the game differently from a younger point. What would it take to unhook a soul from the current body, and then jump back to a younger version and retain all memories? Thoughts?

  • The laws of physics do NOT say that traveling forward in time is the same as traveling backwards. There's one place where the laws of physics are NOT time reversible. And that's inside a black hole's event horizon. Outside the event horizon, if you send a photon in exactly the direction it came from, it will backtrack the way it came from. If you play a video of a ball being thrown and hitting the ground backwards, it still rises into the air in a parabolic path. But something different is about the area inside a black hole. All light cones point into the black hole as time passes forwards, and away from it as time goes in reverse. Meaning there is a definite difference between backward in time pointing vectors and forward in time pointing vectors. If time reversibility fails inside a black hole, there's no reason it shouldn't fail elsewhere, just not in such obvious ways.

  • Is galaxy is moving? Forward if yes then can a galaxy can be captured by a black hole and we know that every time a new galaxy forms and if it is true then there will be an energy in the centre of the universe and if we able to find that energy we will be able to pridict the future because if we know the position of the every particle in the universe then we can pridict future if we got that energy source...

  • Maybe because we are 3D people, we only can perceive time in a forward direction due to our limited interactions with the 4rth dimension. Like the 2d people that only see a widening circle when a globe passes through their world, we perceive time only by what has passed because the future has yet to move through our space. In order to see the future, we should have lift ourselves off our 3D world, or at least be able to see past the 3D world.

And we have No laws except the natural laws before this way was maliciously woven in the optical refractions and manipulation of sound colour angle sound wave shape. Watch this and wait for the real. The real is not this complex, the game is full of division and tactics to be false and cause more error in the further they go. This is nothing but a dead end, own it. Go into your own time, dee your space and what is reality and that isn’t always going to be empirical as empirical isn’t even empirical (um francis bacon and co)?. The world is a holograph and quantum and yes there is biology and process and that is a law but right now? This is propagating this vacuum, decay. No new information, random systems process in symbiosis and the ebb and flow of LAW OF REAL, and regenerate, the whole world, yes free will for the whole biosphere and beyond.

Time is fake. Light and waves and perception are all bound to be misaligned you are giving the empirical method too much for the things it doesn’t ever build on.

  • I feel like even if time did go backwards, we would still perceive it to be moving forwards since our brains work by remembering everything in the 'past'. So with every time slice that we moved 'backwards' we would just forget our previous 'present' state, so we wouldn't notice at all.

  • There is the curious thing where our whole evolution has gone from less organized to more organized, less complex to more complex. It takes a certain stability in what seems to be a forward flow in time and motion for this organization to happen. Could there be something more fundamental happening in the opposite direction of time that finally starts to manifest when the forward flow and motion is calm enough to allow it to show? The notion being if you were to look at our evolution in reverse, we would be becoming less complex and then in this backwards direction evolution finally makes sense in the way it never really has in the traditional way of looking at it. So when you trace forward over the course of billions of years this weak backwards time element from our perspective is always getting a chance to manifest somewhere on Earth, eventually leading to where we are at today? So put all together we are all part of some future, some small component of which was dragged backwards in time and allowed for what we see today moving forward. This way you can still end as in your heap of particles may never be a part of complex life again when you die and and so have no future of high 'alive' organization, but because these small quantum futures keep ending up back in time and interacting with particles moving forward in time, you end up tied to one of these backwards time string complexities. Also all of this breaks down into quantum moment by moment time scales, so this whole life and death thing is more of a construct for human mind comprehension than the reality of the matter. Then again where does the human mind construct really end and reality really begin, right? It seems like the two never meet and the closest we ever really get is a mathematical model pushing the limits of human comprehension on the matter. There is also the problem of we can never really advance past the point in time where we understand why. So even if you see the future, if you don't understand the decisions, you will probably end up doing what you saw if what you saw is correct because you don't understand why you would do it differently until you experience it, but then those moments in time would have past and so it remains the same. At most there is a tightening to where say if manifest at a subconscious / conscious level maybe you start learning a skill before you need it and then when you need it, you are more prepared when the time comes and so that future you waste less time caught off guard. At a more physical level instead of hitting physical stressors and failing as you are already on the path to failure, is tilted more into having the attributes to succeed and be better for next time. This gets into a deep fundamental of everything we thought we saw is kind of wrong, but now we are accounting for the anomaly by adding a whole new paradigm to the model. It is a question though of whether this is completely wrong or is there something to it?

  • Time is mans measuring "tool" to measure our perception of the changes taking place constantly in the universe. The constant changes are specific to our perception. I don't know alot about multiple universes but I would go with multiple dimensions. In our dimension it is not a repeating factor, minuscule differences are a factor. On a quantum scale I could not say. Dimensions are size less. Nothing to great, nothing to small. Everything that is manufactured isn't the same as its predecessor. Minute changes each one(time). So time(motion) also changes and never repeats. Snowflakes. Fingerprints. Twins. Dimensions are the term to describe sizes. As the expanding universe rips matter/energy into smaller dimensions. Forever changing into smaller pieces of observation. Changes are breaking us down every moment of motion. As the theory of dimensions is broken into smaller pieces, time slows down becoming smaller with it. Perception is what we understand. The theory of the big bang could very well be a ripped piece of energy/mass converted to a new dimension. Expansion of a particle, of space. Just my thoughts. Crazy right. As distances get greater and energy/mass gets smaller it would appear to slow down. Perception.

  • The laws of physics allow for the reversal of time, yes, since they are described by equations that allow that. Equations are mathematical. Physics isn't. Causality is physical. When a virtual particle emerges with enough energy, it participates in quantum fields. That particle vanishes, but not its energy. Time comes from causality, never the other way around. Causality can't be undone. Another way to see that reversal of time can't mean going back in the past is that time isn't in control of the physical world. Since time is a concept of our imagination, believing otherwise would require our imagination to influence the physical world. You might argue that time exists since Einstein's theory of special relativity proves time dilation. But it's velocity and gravitation (general theory) that causes this. Time is never in control of anything. It doesn't exist, then.

  • In 1987, a Cover Story in Discover Mag asked the question: "Why do we ONLY remember the past and we NEVER "remember" the future? THE Article indicated that, according to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, remembering the Future would be possible. But in 2018 or 2019, no one could "remember" that the Global Pandemic happened in 2020 ! Yeah, that would be crazy! But if 'TIME'S ARROW' can flow both backwards and forwards, as that 1987 article (Which, BTW, I still have!) or if Time's Arrow can be reversed, as this YOU TUBE Video shows, then 'Remembering the Future " would be as common as 'Remembering the Past'!

Batteries would be flat. Chemical reactions would fail. Food would be stale or spoiled. The very air would be stale. A longer time back would see the structure of the world dissolving. If you managed to skip forward some minutes you would see the future on the cusp of being born. It is always in motion being written by the consciousnesses of billions of cosmic authors telling their stories to shape the shadows of our lives into new dawnings of new eras where generosity overcomes greed.

  • How would we know if we did go backwards in time? Memories in our brain would be unwritten and we would never know it. Same if time stood still for a million years. We would never know since no memories would be created in our brain. Since we can only recall memories our brain has recorded, we could be going backwards in time right now and not be aware of it.

  • I am not sure I understood entropy, but if maximum entropy is reached when everything is evenly distributed, what can have any lower entropy than all space compressed into a single point of infinite mass and absolutely even density across all space? If so, the big bang initial seconds are also very low entropy scenarios as we can see in the microwave radiation background. I feel confused. Here is stated big bang was high entropy because everything was arranged in a specific way, that is all matter in a point, but if all space available was that point, how else could it be arranged? Isn't entropy somewhat related to the inverse of the chance of being in a particular state among those available? The rarest the chance, thr higher the entropy. But since all arrangements of matter at big bang would leave everything as it was, how can be entropy high? What am I missunderstanding?

  • Time doesn't exist. It exists only on our mind. What really exists is an event. Once an event occurs, it can't be undone.

  • And when talking about the universe amd entropy occuring in reverse. I serioisly say no. If entropy happens in a way that all particles reach an equal state of energy then that eventual end outcome would be a singularity, all particles and energy have returned to an equal 0 state, which i believe is what happens in blackholes, so it is fair to say that the singularity is just an ultra massive black hole, which collapses on itself to create a universe creating supernova. If you think of a black hole as a form of star, and that stars when they reach a certain mass negates their gravitational force go supernova, then why cant a blackhole eventually contain enough energy and mass to overcome its tremendous gravitational force

  • The flaw in this is that pbs is talking about individual particles, not particles that have joined together to create other elements or life. With these more complex structures, time begins at their creation, therefore that structures entropy can only occur forward in time, because before its perception of time it doesnt exist, you cant go back further than its creation and its beginning perception of time. So entropy can only occur forwards.
