No, because if it were, an Agent would have silenced MauWii before he gave up all the world's secrets - which, because he was silenced, would never have actually been given up, thus alleviating his need to be silenced.... <head explodes>

No. The past is simply memories - physical records. I think the only plausible way to "travel" into the future is, say, to invent a way to keep you from ageing and then be put to sleep - which I don't think will ever happen.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

[16:41] kribs: don't worry Emmy, even if poix tried to steal something from you, he wouldn't finish stealing it

No the past is merely a collection of atoms all arranged in a certain way.If it was possible to arrange those atoms in the exact same way again then the past would become the present.Yes it's long way off but I bet 5000 years ago man would have said that travelling in space would never happen.Don't underestimate our unique (on this planet!) ability to invent and create amazing things.We are very close to being able to do pretty much anything we can think off,once quantum physics is truly understood and with our knowledge of DNA we will be able to shape this world and others anyway we want.I truly believe that if the human race survives (and that could be the stumbling block :( ) long enough then we will crack time travel.Now if only the human race could be trusted with that power we could have an amazing future (or past. :D).

What's this bit for again?

Time is relative and a construct that was given a name to describe motion. Our understanding of physics is that we live and perceive only four dimensions out of the possible thirteen. A four dimensional world seen via, X/Y/Z planes or height, width and depth. The fourth dimension of motion. All time is a measurement of the motion we detect. As with our current structure, three hundred and sixty-five days the Earth it takes to orbit the our star. Twenty-four hours is the time it takes the Earth rotate on its axis broken further down.

If a body in motion stays in motion until acted upon by a equal or greater force? How would altering past-tense motion? Traveling back in time? In Back to the Future, Micheal J Fox changed his reality with the help of a time machine. Could this happen, I would think if the possibility of reverse travel, yes, it could, possibly. But think of this, if Marty McFly used a time machine to travel back in time, that means time line 1, Marty knows the Doc. Well, in time line 2, his life is changed and his parents are respected and wealthy. But he still knows the Doc and he still traveled back in time and remembered his life before. The would not be due to the fact when the time line changed, his memories should have changed. Even if he is at a different place in the time line, he was in the correct place growing up and would have those memories and would not be shocked to know his father purchased a pickup for him.
In the second movie, Marty heads forward, this in itself should not pose a paradox as reverse travel would as any encounters would not effect previous time lines and distort Marty's reality.
I am sorry for using those movies, but the movies defy physics and the nature of the flow of motion(time). Is it possible to travel through time, I would say with our limited intelligence, we may never know as we do not have an understanding of the universe and the flow of motion in general. More so, answer me this, why does time fly when you are having fun? Or why does time go by faster when you get older?
Perspective and perception...As you get older, you have a better understanding of how much time flows. When you are ten years old, a year is an eternity. Namely due to the fact that a year is one-tenth of your life. Now, if you are thirty years old, a year seems to be faster as it is one-thirtieth of your life, make sense? As far as fun time flying, well, when you mind is occupied by an activity that engages your brain, you are less likely to watch the clock as you not worried as to the amount of time you have left to endure. Therefore you occasionally glance at the clock versus check it every five minutes.
Is time travel possible? Can humans act upon it with an equal or greater force? Do we have the knowledge to travel out of the dimensions we know? I would say no, we cannot travel through time.
