Essay Abstract

For time travel using hole teleportation we must create a very complicate “digital” force field around body in order to forbid its teleportation in space and enable teleportation in time. Hole teleportation is a sole method able for teleportation of matter in space and time travel because this method envelop a object with absolutely impenetrable surface which cuts all causal and physical interactions with environment. For this reason, all other methods create paradoxes at time travel; for example through wormholes objects from past and future can interact gravitationally due to appear many problems with conservation laws, causality violation and so on. There is description of a real experiment of Time travel/teleportation of nucleus.

Dear Constantin,

Interesting idea of time travel. I don’t know I we really will be ever able to cut a sphere from our spacetime continuum, but who knows?

On the other hand, if the world splits, as in the Many Worlds Interpretation, disconnecting a sphere from our spacetime wouldn’t allow also travel in other versions of our world too? Or in other universes, or connected components different than our own?

But I think that it is also very dangerous, since the time traveler may remain disconnected forever.

On the other hand, I have difficulties understanding what you mean by the change of metric during the time. Assuming a change in the metric implies another metric, a reference metric, comparing to which we measure the change.

Best wishes,

Cristi Stoica

We can check it experimentally. The vacuum hole is the absence of space-time, therefore vacuum holes able to cut space-time. Thus if we create vacuum holes between two objects, it must increase their isolation one from another. But we must...
