The Future of… 6 – Ultimate Travel
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
June 8, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Rick Rosner: I’m sure there will continue to be fancier ways of transport, but the emphasis for transport will shrink. We will still build a bullet train to Vegas eventually, so California or LA idiots can get there quicker. Transportation is interesting.
Another thing you just brought up is time travel.
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: It is the ultimate form of travel.
Rosner: Yes. Some will say it is the worst because most shows assume you will be anchored to your spot-on Earth as you time travel, even though the Earth is travelling around the Sun and rotating and the Sun is in the Solar System and moving in the Milky Way and the Milky Way is moving in among billions of galaxies.
All that movement is something you must track. It is another reason time travel is goofy. Every moment is a quantum web, a quantum event. It is non-replicatable. Under Newton, who thought the universe, or theorized as if the universe had absolute space and time, which includes infinite precision in objects’’ locations, you can imagine the universe being an experiment in billiards, where you can just run back the world.
But the world is incompletely defined and information about the past that you might use to replicate the past is not completely recoverable as we move into the future. Everything wobbles, even if you could run times backwards.
There are particles like positrons and whatever you call negative protons.
