I don't think we can apply these thoughts to trips into the past. After all you can't wait for past to arrive.
That's exactly my point! If one does age while traveling thru time, then there is no way one can travel into the past, and can only travel into the future. OTOH, if one does not age, then the only way one can do so is by teleporting, and if one is teleporting, then it is not you who is arriving into the past or the future, but it is your clone.
So, in theory, either you can travel to the future, or you can die, and let some clone of yours travel to the past! Alternatively, if you wish to save the "waiting period" involved in the time travel, then you can die, and let some clone of yours travel to the future.
Just a thought!

Well, as insomniac's Dave Matel (I think I spelled his name right) said, "To get places, you can do one of two things. You could A) take a cab or some other form of transportation, or B) do what I do and 'time travel.'" ("time travel" referred to him drinking)
Einstein created space-time theory, which basically means that space and time are not constant in the universe. Time goes faster/slower in some parts of the universe in this theory of his (which seems to have some relation to speeds relative to the speed of light). So, theoretically, he is correct. One of two twins can get on a spaceship and age slower/faster than the twin on earth.
I think what people tend to forget is that we ourselves are moving incredibly fast through the universe. Relative to the speed of light, I can't say how fast we are moving, but I can say that with respect to some objects moving away from us at incredibly fast speeds, we seem to be aging much faster.
As for going the speed of light, not to burst anyone's bubble, but it isn't possible. Even if it were, you'd physically BE light to be going that fast. But, I imagine there are ways of getting awfully close to the speed of light. I've heard of a new design by NASA where a gigantic reflective parachute is pushed by light from the sun. It would be slow at first, but the potential to go fast is just short of the speed of light itself. I don't know if NASA has any plans to use this design, but it looks pretty cool. "Warp seven. Engage!"
If the world should blow itself up,the last audible voice would be an expert saying it can't be done

Here is food for thought: Suppose some method of time travel DOES become possible. However, while you can move through time, you do not move through space. So if you stepped into a portal taking you into the future, you would simply come out where the portal used to be. Even if you carried some of the movement energy of the earth with you, you would just fly off in a straight line, whilst the earth continued orbiting the sun.
So in order to travel through time, we need some method of also moving a great distance as the same time, in order to keep up with the earth's future position. Of course, intense calculations would have to be made, and even so, we could only make said calculations in relation to our own solar system. So this alone makes surviving time travel very improbable.

Food for food for thought: So we have to pop out at the "same" position where we stepped in. But "same position" relative to what? You brought up the point that the Earth goes on orbiting. But so does our solar system, our galaxy, et cetera.

[RCD Sums Up]
After all these discussions it seems to me that neither Time Travel nor Teleportation is possible due to the following reasons:-
0. Time Travel:- One has to predict the space and time of the destination, sounds more like the uncertainity principle to me, hence if one can not predict both at a particular time, one can not arrive at the destination.
1. Teleportation:- One has to die, and be re-incranated at the destination, so in effect one is not being teleported but a clone is being generated on-the-fly, and you die in the process.
So, with the current knowledge that we have, time travel and teleportation do not seem to be a distant possibility, but seem impossible to me! So, I guess we have to wait for some major break-through in science to make these things look possible.

This is very possible to teleport or time jumpingWe're not going to reconstruct our matter
But we shortened the nature matter
We open a wormhole
We create a shortcut to the other place
Then we're moving trought inside the hole to jump over the time or teleporting
I agree that we're gonna die if we construct our matter because it feels like we're taking a nuclear bomb, so it's impossible to reconstruct our body
HOWEVER if we reconstruct the nature matter, we'll be still alive
Why do i say it? BECAUSE I met with my future
It's okay if you think that I'm crazy or something, but believe it or not I WILL FIND HOW TO TRAVEL THE TIME
It's okay if nobody believe me, but trust it
Someday I'll gonna travel through the time

I'm pushing the envelope here but I have been looking into the works of David Sereda. He's an absolutely brilliant ufologist that has been studying anti-gravity/ufo's for over 20 years. He has studied NASA videos that clearly show UFO's and he did an interview with Dan Aykroyd that is very down to earth.
I've thoroughly enjoyed this interview because it was extremely believable in that Dan Aykroyd is very wholesome and has a certain quality about him that makes what he says very credible.
I'd like to hear your opinions on this.

You should watch the video's on Google in which David Sereda analyzes some Nasa footage that apparently has some objects in it that give all indications that they are UFO and they seem to blink in and out (teleporting perhaps). I can't do it justice here, you just have to watch it to appreciate the craziness of that Nasa footage and his narration. Absolutely brilliant stuff. David Sereda is a mastermind on this stuff.
He also has a video interview with Dan Akroyd which is seriously entertaining.
Video's are easily found on Google and YouTube.
