Einstein‘s equations, we
recall, state that
the curvature or bending of space and time is determined by the
matter-energy content of the universe. It is,
possible to find configurations of matter-energy
powerful enough to force the bending of time and allow for time travel.
However, the concentrations of matter-energy necessary to bend time backwards are so vast that general relativity breaks down and quantum corrections begin to dominate overrelativity.
Even if the tech doesn‘t exist, its possible
- which means we will do it

researchers haveproposed ways in which backward and forward time machines can be built that do not seem to
violate any known laws of physics. Remember that the laws of physics tell us what is possible, not
what is practical for humans at this point in time.
The physics of time travel is still in its infancy. While all physiciststoday admit that time travel to the future is possible, many still believe time travel to the past will never easily be attainable.
anyone who tells you that humans will
have efficient technology for backward and forward
Accurately predicting future technology is nearly impossible, and history is filled with underestimates of technology:
Time travel creates loops in time that makes infinite folds in the universe- causes it to endRandall No Date

This theory involves two types of temporal loops. One type is the loop mentioned in the last paragraph, the 'grandfather paradox'. For the rest of this paragraph, let's call it the 'infinite repeat' loop, because it results in two different possibilities, infinitely repeating after one another. Anothertype of loop exists. It is the 'infinite possibilities' loop. In this loop, the loop changes every single time that the loop repeats. Think of this:
Imagine that you ask your best friend to go back in time to before you were born and kill your
granddad. Also, you had enough forethought to tell him to, while he's back there, write a note to his
future self to go back in time and kill the man who would be your granddad.
Everything's Okay, right? Maybenot.
When your friend is given the instruction to go and kill your granddad
one thing. When he receives a note from
his future self
, he might do another. And if he does another
thing during the second repeat, he must do a different thing the third.
And the forth. And the fifth.
in one iteration of the loop would result in a change in the note, which would result in a change inthe next iteration. Eventually, he'll do something that ends up breaking down the loop
(ie, forgetting towrite himself a note).
This will result in a infinite repeat loop starting. And
as was already mentioned,
cause the universe to end.
