Back to the Future

December 13, 2016

It has been over thirty years since Doc Brown warned Marty McFly about the dangers of messing with the space-time continuum, and yet apparently, a group of physicists want to give it a try.  Two professors from Griffith University in Australia and one from the University of California have decided that maybe time travel isn’t just a thing of novels, movies and television shows.  
Professor Howard Wiseman, from Griffith University, recently stated, “In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation’, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made.”  Indeed!
Have you ever thought about being able to visit the past?  Have you ever wondered if you were able to go back to yesterday, would you be able to change today, and make the world a better place?
Could you have stopped the Holocaust? Or prevented 9/11?  And if you did, how would it effect the space-time continuum?
With apologies to Doc Brown and his compatriots, here is the reality: nobody can change the past, but everybody can change their future.
3,000 years ago, Solomon reminded us that there is a time for everything and our time is today.  And I truly believe that there is a person for every time.  And why couldn’t that person be you?

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
