Is it possible to use giant magnets to flip the magnetic field into a negative side and create time travel?

I bet all the geniuses who work on that sort of thing have already thought of that. If time travel were that easy we'd already be doing it. Theoretical Science has lots if theories that are impossible or unlikely practically.

sure but who has a magnet that big.

possible to create.

than what are we wating for i want to time travel
Report as
yea man me to. but the time machine will be earth unless you direct the field into a time machine on earth and reverse it within the time machine.

well than well all travel together i gusse
Report as
yea!!! but some people don't want to. time stops when you travel but around you does not. we would need something to flip it back to its original state.
Report as
wait what about three magnets two to flip the magnetic field and the other one to get the energy being created to time travel.
Report as
that could be possible.

hey if it works we could play the song time keeps on slippin while travelin. it will be a epic day! or 5 or so years.
Report as
yea now to make the magnets
Report as
indeed! we need a machine to get them to desired points.

ok boss who goes north and who goes south

i will go north because i live in canada. you go south.

south pole here i come !

I don't think so... Giant Magnets?

yes giant magnets

I'm not so sure about the magnetic field time travel, but I did watch some Stephen Hawking theories of time travel with crafts that reach light speed...
Report as
i used quantum mechanics for this theory. you know how the sun implodes and creates time travel with a negative field rather than a positive field being a magnet
Report as
There is a way though the study of quantum mechanics to transportation of atoms from one place to the other

No, I don't think so. How could they demonstration that? It is not possible so far because they never made it done.

so then it would be a theory until proven.
Report as
or disproven.

Right, I would be in great interests to learn when it is proved. We all know that time never come back and it is same for everyone, if it can be faster for one and slower to another one, I guess it is hard for them to meet each other.

could you demonstrate it this way http://physics.bu.edu/~duffy/PY106/MagField.html ?
Report as
damn. well there goes that idea.
Report as
No, I can't.
Report as
i know because it is physically impossible.
Report as
So it is only mentally possible.
Report as
yea

What does the magnetic field have to do with the flow of time? We put people in giant magnets all the time (PET scans) and they don't go back or forward in time.

would be really cool if they did though.
