Philosophy, Physics

Keeping aside Quantum Electro-Dynamics (QED), I believe there should exist a General Relativity like geometrical interpretation of electro-magnetic forces experienced and caused by electrical charges. There could be an all permeating electro-magnetic field in our universe which is perturbed or better said distorted by the presence of charged particles in it. This distortion is detected only by particles which respond to the perturbations in the field and are created by this field.

It is obvious that these would be electric charges. Just like matter follows geodesics in the curved space-time geometry giving the notion of the presence of a force called gravity; linearly and uniformly travelling charges respond to the curvatures caused in the electromagnetic field fabric by other charges and are attracted or repelled by them.

More on this Later. Let the plausibility of this idea settle-in  for the time being.

Thus Quoth Immanuel Kant

 For neither co-existence nor succession would be perceived by us, if the representation of time did not exist as a foundation a priori. Without this presupposition we could not represent to ourselves that things exist together at one and the same time, or at different times, that is, contemporaneously, or in succession.

Thoughts On Time

The Tension’s increased now. You can’t understand why your ‘H.G. Wells’ Style time machine to the past won’t work. You try to push down the start button, but it won’t budge! You think this ‘out-of-the-world’ invention of yours needs an ‘out-of-the-world’ place, so you send it over to the junkyard where some kids find it one day and cook their own science-fiction tales ! You haven’t actually given up. Instead you’ve built another cranking machine that creates a dazzling white orb that is capable of sending you to the future! YES, I said ‘THE FUTURE’! You don’t look impressed, especially after the ‘back-in-time disaster’  you expect nothing better from this machine. To be sincere, I would have to say that you are very right! It seems  funny yet the reason your machines don’t work is that they actually work!  Let me show you the truth hidden in there.

Continuing from the last post where I introduced you to notsoscientific and the ‘time-travel teddy-bear’ we human beings love to cuddle with, let me now explain why you should keep that cute little teddy back in the drawer and grow out of it.

Using nothing more than the layman’s language and intelligence I have deduced that time travel to the past is impossible; or rather the time-traveller makes it impossible. Confused? Read on.
