What are your thoughts that gravity would enter the equation when time traveling? And it could be gravity from the Earth, sun, or even the center of the galaxy. Maybe it would act as an anchor. There is no data to suggest that the effects of gravity would change while traveling through time, or even if gravity would work differently if our entropy were reversed like in Tenet.
For all we know, gravity could hold you where you are whether you are traveling forward at 1 sec per 1 sec (normal speed), or -24 hours per sec.
Interesting, I have no thoughts on that really. I have always been a big fan of time-travel movies and the concept in general, but I am getting very irritated with how casually it is used as a plot device, especially as I get older and realize just how ridiculously difficult (I'm being generous by using the word difficult) time travel is.
TIME TRAVEL; Given:
- The Earth is rotating about 1,070 mph
- The Earth is orbiting the sun at 66,600 mph
- Our Solar System is moving thru the Milky Way at 560,000 mph
- And the Milky Way is hurtling thru space at 670,000 mph
Assuming you could build a time machine, you had better make it
capable of interstellar space travel because if you only went back
10 weeks in time you would find yourself over 1.1 BILLION miles
from where you started, simply floating in deep space.
Add that to the irreconcilable paradoxes associated with
'time travel', no matter how many times Hollywood
uses it as a cheap, ill-conceived plot device.
