To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe.

Remember this blog post “In A Haste, My Mind Ran Wild, And Aha, Time Is A Cup Of Tea!” I’d written in December of 2017 in regards to Time?  If you’ve not read it, you can check it out through the link above.  Basically, in the last blog post, I used the cup of tea metaphor to explain how I think time could be reverted to allow time travel into the past.  This blog post will also be talking about time travel!

In the last blog post, I mentioned how you could imagine yourself escaping a cup of tea to travel back into time, I will try to convince you even more that it’s possible to do time travel in this blog post by using the 4th dimension.  In the video right after the break, Carl Sagan explains how a shadow of an object in the 4D universe can be represented by a 3D tesseract.

Common sense tells us that 3D objects can project 2D shadows onto a 2D surface.  Imagine what if you’re a 2D being, how such a 3D shadow would look like to you?  Since we’re 3D beings, it’s easy for us to imagine how 2D beings would feel about 3D shadows.  With this in mind, it’s obvious that we also know how difficult for us to imagine, if not impossible, how 4th-dimensional objects would form.  Thus, it’s common sense for us to imagine up the shadows of 4th-dimensional objects to allow us to imagine up the forms of the 4th-dimensional objects.

In the video above, Carl Sagan suggests that 2D beings could experience 3D space and time by flying upward.  Remember, 2D beings cannot jump up or fly upward because the up direction is a space within a 3D world.  With space comes time!  If we can imagine somehow a 2D being could experience time and space of 3D being, then we can also imagine how a 3D being like us could also experience the 4D space and time.

In my other blog post, I mentioned that in order for a person to escape time and space he or she needs to get out of her cup of tea and find another cup of tea with the same temperature and the right mixture of the same brand of tea of a time earlier to experience a time travel back to the past.  Since it’s not the same cup of tea that is necessary for a person to experience the exact events of the past as the requirements are not strict in regards to the container of the tea (i.e., the teacup).  The actual strict requirement is probably the mixture of the correct tea brand, temperature, and other ingredients that reside in a teacup.  This means you could kill your grandfather in a cup of tea and rematerialize yourself in another cup of tea without being dead.  How?  As long the next cup of tea you jump back into got the right ingredients and condition that would form the right mixture of the cup of tea that you had jumped out earlier — this would allow you to get back to the present and still be able to survive even though your grandfather got killed by you when you traveled back into time.

Kind of confusing, but just imagine each presence could be recreated by a universe of parallel space and time.  Here comes the exciting part of how I correlate the Carl Sagan’s video above to what I’m talking about.  So, in order for you to jump out of this godly cup of tea, you have to exit your 3D universe right?  In my opinion, the space and time of the godly cup of tea, godly fabric, could be formed by the right mixture of godly ingredients (e.g., temperature, tea brand, milk, sugar).  Each cup of tea got its own fabric of space and time, thus each cup of tea got its own dimensional preference.  With correct ingredients, one could imagine such a cup of tea could be formed many times over — allowing the correct dimensional universe to be formed many times over.  In our case, we could see a parallel world with three dimensions without a doubt if you think my deduction is correct in regards to time and space in a godly cup of tea.

As Carl Sagan speaks how 2D being got kick flying upward into a 3D universe in the video, my mind tells me that if a 4D being kicks me flying upward into a 4D universe I could find the right cup of tea to jump back into to revisit the past or even the future.  After thinking about this, I guess some people in the past — who believed destiny could have been written down before time — could be correct.  How?  The future could have been formed over and over again in the same exact manner or result in various manners in various parallel universes (i.e., in various cups of tea) according to my deduction in regards to time and space.  So, our past could have been formed in this way in various parallel universes.  Nonetheless, for a 3D being like us to witness another parallel universe I think we have to exit our own 3D universe and materialize in the 4D universe.  Only in the 4D universe that wraps over our 3D universe, we can then witness the past the present and the future all at the same time if we like.






In A Haste, My Mind Ran Wild, And Aha, Time Is A Cup Of Tea!

I’m not a scientist, and so I won’t even bothered to pretend to be one.  I’m going to use casual terms and meanings to try to explain to everyone what I think time is.  In nature, time appears to be an arrow once shoots won’t be able to go back into the quiver.  Why?  It appears as if time travels only in one direction.  Which means, time is only moving forward.  Nonetheless, this would puzzle scientists as they would ask why time could not be rewound.

If you play a CD, DVD, or any digital storage medium, you would be able to rewind and fast forward recorded time, but real time could not be streamed backward.  In fact, many people who have regrets would love to wish that they could stream time in backward motion so they could jump into their past to fix their mistakes.  Nonetheless, it seems time could only decay forward.

I could be wrong but in some religions, these folks would promote time is a flat dimension in which this dimension would stretch on into the infinity.  They would argue that the clock is a manmade concept in which it maps relative, perceptive units of time.  Since time is an infinite to these folks, they would probably argue that the relative, perceptive manmade clock is creating a fictional timeline which would help humans to be able to weave out a history of time.

Many scientists nowadays believe Einstein is correct on how time is churning, because of his special relativity theory.  Basically, Einstein argues that time is relative to the observers.  If you’re on a spaceship that travels near the speed of light, time would move slower, but if your friend is stationed on earth time would move faster.  This means by the time you get back to him or her, this person would probably grow much older than you.  This phenomenon appears to allow you to travel through time, but only in a forwarding, dimensional motion.

I have a crazy idea, and there is no proof to back it up of course.  My imagination runs wild and I let it be.  Basically, I argue that time is like a cup of tea.  Imagine a cup of tea dips into an ocean of tea and extract out a full cup of tea, but before one drinks this cup of tea it needs some milk.  I would pour in a really good type of milk to improve my cup of tea, thus this cup of tea indeed is having a great future.  Nonetheless, what if I poison the cup of tea?  If I drink it I would surely have a very grave future indeed.

Imagine I extract a gazillion cups of tea out of the ocean of tea, and in each cup of tea I would either enhance it or sour it.  Thus each cup among the gazillion more would have a very different future according to what I would color it.  Imagine the tea inside each cup is time.  It’s more like captured or recorded time.  Nonetheless, this recorded, captured time is weaved almost as one with the fabric of the universe itself, thus when the tea begins to cool there is no way to warm it up again.

Of course, unless you have a way to jump out of the cup of tea, pick it up, put it in a microwave and start to warm it up again with godly microwave heat.  Otherwise, the tea will decay naturally and never get warm again.  Nonetheless, when you jump out of the cup of tea, what space/time have you jumped into?  Once you’re out of the cup of tea, you could pour it back into the ocean of tea.  Does this mean you create a new time?  Each new event you create with your cup of tea, it still seems to be impossible to revert time back in real time.

By that I mean when you warm up your cup of tea again, in your new space it means you’re just creating a new event with your cup of tea.  It does not seem like you’re reverting time so your cup of tea would travel back in time and become the original warmed cup of tea.  Nonetheless, according to Einstein, time is relative to the observers if I understand his theory correctly, this would mean the people who are inside the cup of tea would either feel like if they’re traveling back in time.  Because their whole universe is warming up to how it was warmed.

Given the condition is right which gives rise to an appropriate mixing of necessary elements to create the origin time period, perhaps this is how one would experience a reverting time inside a warm cup of tea.

If my imagination is on the right track with time, then I guess you could go back in time and kill your grandfather yet you would still exist in the future.  How come?  Once each cup of tea got filled, it is a universe in itself.  Thus what had happened in such a universe is and will always be existed in such a universe.  Like a forensic expert who could walk back the crime scene even though he or she isn’t there because existing matters would allow he or she to look back in time to figure out what had happened.  In the cup of tea, the universe won’t just erase its events unless you pour the tea out of the cup.

Basically, I think you could kill your grandfather in one cup of tea, and with the right conditions in another cup of tea, you would still exist.  This is rather confusing, but I think it does explain why I think you could travel back in time.  By this I mean you better find the right cup of tea to jump into.  With the right condition, the cup of tea would allow you to travel back in time.  Nonetheless, what other side effects and conditions you have created when you jump out of the cup of tea?  After all, it requires you to jump out of the cup of tea’s dimension into a bigger dimension so you could find another right cup of tea to jump back into.

In addition:  I forgot to mention that in our cup of tea, the tea could evaporate in time.  After all in our universe (cup of tea) water does evaporate — given it enough time — even though it is not going to be boiled.  So if I’m correct, can each cup of tea I’d constructed in earlier paragraphs be evaporated given it enough time?  If this is true, would our very own cup of tea (i.e., our universe) be very finite?  Personally, I think our cup of tea will eventually evaporate, but our species won’t be able to survive long enough to witness such an event.


What Time Is It? (A poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!

Time’s like a river,
it flows through time,
endlessly it flows,
to nowhere nobody knows,
to what purpose nobody knows,
but it does flow since the dawn of age,
since then time has been stretching,
till now time has been stretching,
into the infinity time goes.

Here we are sitting and pondering,
since when we’ve heard of time,
since when a clock would churn,
since when time has winded down,
since when time has flown by,
since when we’ve ran out of time,
since when time isn’t so constant,
since when time weaved within space,
and since when space and time were related?

We’ve been believing a lie,
memory of time was long lost,
and yet here we are living in a lie,
believing time is current,
but it’s so ancient,
we know not when time was set,
yet here we are setting a date,
yet here we are setting a time,
yet here we are living a lie.

Nonetheless, we humans are bold,
living a lie to make time right,
not for righting a truth of time,
but to righting a time we live,
but to righting a time we flow with,
we’ve made up our own time device,
so we know why time is running out,
so we know when time is right,
for us to move forward in time.

Imagine Time As A Tide Medium To Record Bookmarks Of Time For A Universe, But What About The Sum Of Infinite Natural Numbers Equal To -1/12 or -1/8?

Watching “Sum of Natural Numbers (second proof and extra footage)” video on YouTube, and I’m amused how the proof got to an answer of -1/12 for the summation of 1+2+3+4+n… (i.e., n to the infinity).  Part of the proof, the professor uses the geometric series (if I’m not wrong about this to be geometric series) of — 1+x+x^2+x^3+x^n… (as n to the infinity) equal to 1/1-x — to manipulate more numbers in more ways to come up with -1/12 as the answer to the sum of the infinite basic numbers such as 1+2+3+4+n… (as n to the infinity).  So, I guess if the proof in which the professor explains in the video is correct, adding basic items in a series to the infinity would equate to -1/12.  Nonetheless, what mind-blowing about this is that adding all the positive things yet it turns out to be a negative thing as in -1/12 (negative for sure).  Check out this video right after the break.

What is even more nifty is that I found another video on YouTube which relies on the video above to refute the -1/12 answer to the sum of positive things, and the video would argue that -1/8 is the real answer to this scenario.  Well, by now I’m totally confused by both videos for sure.  So, is it -1/12 is the answer to 1+2+3+4+n… (to the infinity) or the answer would be -1/8?  Check out the next video right after the break.

Anyway, it’s quite amusing, and I’m not sure if I’m ever going to be able to understand this proof.  Anyhow, maybe someday my mind will be a little brighter than now and I’ll definitely see how -1/12 would be the answer of the sum of infinite positive numbers.  Or is it that only the sum of all positive number series would equate to -1/12 or -1/8, but adding non-series numbers in total to the infinity would not equate to such answer?  But, all numbers like natural numbers can always be counted to the positive, thus does it really matter that non-series numbers in total to the infinity would turn out to be any differently than -1/12 or -1/8?


To be honest, I was wondering about how time and space can be infinite or not, and a similar question on Quora (Can time be infinite and space be finite?) got an answer which directs me to the first YouTube video which I had posted near the very top of this blog post.  Yep, that’s how I found out about these videos.

Personal thought:

Right now, I imagine time as in a single tide travels to an imaginative beach in which this beach got no sand barrier to block the tide, and this tide would ride on into the infinity and would never be able to hit against the sand barrier of the beach.  I imagine that each tide is a time.  Thus with this imagination I can conclude that each tide is an origin which represents a time medium.  Nonetheless, this time tide medium isn’t a regular tide, and so it would have history of time, like bookmarks of time.  Anything which rides upon the time tide medium would move forward with time, but leave history in bookmarks of time tide medium.  This imagination would allow me to go further by concluding that I can travel in time by revisiting the bookmarks of time tide medium, or perhaps I can jump to another time tide medium to visit the bookmarks of time of not my own altogether.  If this is possible, does it mean jumping to another time tide medium would mean escaping the current universe?  After all, I assume that different universe should allow a different behavior of time tide medium, because each time tide medium could behave differently altogether.  Anyway, this whole crazy mess I just ranted on is my imagination, and it has no proof of anything — meaning it’s nothing in reality and just an imagination (i.e., a fairy tale).
