Ever since I read books by Eckhart Tolle about how the present moment is all we have and our being trapped in a continual time loop of past and future is the real problem, I've since changed my perspective of the need for time travel. In retrospect, people who want to build time machines are simply reflecting the dilemma of being caught in a time loop seeking to expand to that of multiple time loops.
Back in May, 2009, an inventor by the name of Mitchell Kwok of Honolulu, Hawaii applied for a time machine patent under U.S. Patent Application 20090234788. The man obviously has a lot of "time" on his hands he knows not what to do with.
Practical Time Machine Using Dynamic Efficient Virtual And Real Robots
A method for time travel, which allows an object or a group of objects to travel into the past or the future, as well as a method to cut objects from the past or future and paste them to the current environment. The present invention, called the practical time machine, requires teams of super intelligent robots that work together in the virtual world and the real world to generate a perfect timeline of planet Earth. The timeline of Earth records all objects, events and actions every fraction of a nanosecond for the past or the future. A time traveler will set a time travel date; the time traveler can be one object or a group of objects. Next, atom manipulators are scattered throughout the Earth to change objects in our current environment based on the timeline; and incrementally, change the current environment until the time travel date. Each atom manipulator is intelligent and manipulates the current environment as well as generating ghost machines to manipulate the current environment. Also, components of the practical time machine can be used to create technology for the purpose of: building cars, planes and rockets that travel at the speed of light, building intelligent weapons, creating physical objects from thin air, using a chamber to manipulate objects, building force fields, making objects invisible, building super powerful lasers, building anti-gravity machines, creating strong metals and alloys, creating the smallest computer chips, collecting energy without any solar panels or wind turbines, making physical DNA, manipulating existing DNA, making single cell organisms, controlling the software and hardware of computers and servers without an Internet connection, and manipulating any object in the world.
According to many string theory physicists, there are parallel universes where multiple versions of reality exist. As scientists gradually mastered various natural forces on earth, many are looking into how to harness this new knowledge of multi-universes. For instance, there's a reality where JFK did not get assassinated and a much different world emerged since he was allowed to accomplish his goals of ridding the U.S. of the private Federal Reserve banking system and CIA shadow government that is the cause of many problems. A time traveler armed with string theory might want to know how to enter that much different world to explore its unique history.
The Power of Now Better Than Time Machine?
From a fresh new perspective, the power of now, according to Eckhart Tolle, seems a much more potent a tool.
For instance, the past, present and future are all combined in the now eternal moment. How perfect is that? It's very quantum in all respects. It also cancels out time itself so the very time consuming task of building a time machine is unnecessary. One therefore has easy access to the entire shebang in every moment encountered. The key to accessing the moment is one's conscious awareness of it.
One can think of the now moment as a point from where you begin to blow up a balloon. The air into the balloon can be viewed metaphorically as one's growing awareness and the expansion of it as such. The delicate surrounding membrane of the balloon eventually pops when the threshold is met in crossing over to a much larger awareness then oneself.
When one thinks how simple the concept of becoming increasingly aware of the now moment is a means to access past, present and future, the concept of a time travel machine seems counterproductive and even self defeating. In fact, maybe the "evil ones" can somehow be lured into being trapped in new time lines with such a precarious time machine as a means to get rid of them.
