The Future of… 4 – Time Travel

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 22, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: We were taking off-tape about the future of time travel and how it will not be a thing.

Rick Rosner: We talked about what will and won’t happen. Those aren’t practical for a couple of reasons. One is being that there is not infrastructure for the first topic we talked about, flying cars. One is that you can’t get aloft by hauling ass off your street.

Two, there is not much cost savings for using a system like that. It is not like if you’re so into flying that you need a plane that you’ll somehow save money by buying a combination car-plane. The instances you need a car will not be the ones in which you need a plane.

There is not much of an overlap for most people. So, there is no market for it, little infrastructure for it; In general, in the mid- to far-future, say 50 years and beyond. The amount of travel per person on average, I am guessing, will decline as a telepresence gets better and better.
