You could say this is a sequel to the “Mindfuck of The Night” post.
Firstly, let’s take a quick look at our current technology. There is already multiple successful research on invisibility cloaking technology and Active Camouflage which have been shown in said research to be able to hide objects. This was posted about a year or so ago, we are now in 2011.
Secondly, physicists and other scientist have yet to tap into the power of dark matter, which is what makes up most of the universe. We’ve got matter, and dark matter, the cytoplasm of the universe you could say. Why do I mention dark matter in time travel theorizing? Because dark matter I think will be the energy of the future, theories dictate that with enough harnessed dark matter energy one could, in theory, travel back in time or forward by creating a wormhole with this energy. What about paradoxes? Well, let’s say that what holds true for the quantum plane (sub atomic/ the level of the very small universe), where the same particle can be at multiple places at once without canceling itself then lets apply that to our own universe. That being said the paradoxes suddenly disappear, because you see if the same holds true for the quantum then that would mean that there are an infinite number of universes even ones with the same exact properties with only a minor change in it. If some one were to tamper with the past or future it would merely create new timelines and universes that branch off from one another to allow for every possible outcome, just like the quantum theory shows for sub atomic particles that we are only discovering their purpose now.
Thirdly, space tourism is currently having a huge boom for itself in interest and funding as many countries attempt to be the leading one in space flights and research. This indicates that if you apply that notion to a future you’d probably have a lot of well made space crafts. Who knows, maybe in this time there would also be a better understanding of dark matter, since at this point I’m sure our scientific instruments would have technologically evolved enough to understand this energy.
Toss these up in a pot like a strew, they start to create an amazing imaginary image that just some how makes sense to me. If our technology has gotten so advanced now that we can A.) Hide observable objects in plain sight B.) Even realize that there is dark matter and it is usable as a powerful universal energy source since it is literally every where C.) Make a tourism out of Space travel, which shows you how advanced our vehicles and flight craft have gotten D.) Theorize that the laws of physics allow for time travel to happen.
Would it not be okay then to imagine that perhaps way into our very own timeline, the timeline and universe you and I Live in now, at some point in to the future leads a technological breakthrough in which we finally learn time travel? At this point in time there would be no doubt about the power of science, in this future I would guess that the community is based on scientific ideals if they are able to reach such unfathomable (for now) technology. They would be the children of Sagan, to paint this community more vividly. The generation of the scientists and well informed, children of the universe.
In this timeline, in my timeline since I don’t want people taking this too serious(it’s all just fun science fiction right now).. Here, humans have finally progressed into space faring, technologically advanced, time bending metahumans that have learned to harness just about every aspect of their known scientific studies (Biology, The Human Body, Astronomy, Psychology, Ecology, Geology, etc.). In this kind of community one would actually find it hard to pick a fight or express negative emotions since at this point those would seem primitive (much like most find squatting in the outskirts of the wild life and taking a number 2 primitive). In this kind of community our invisibility cloaking technology would have advanced beyond comprehension, I would think this allows for some very amazing hiding tricks. Hiding tricks essential if one would want to go back in time as a curious historian/time traveler charged with the duty of understanding our past so that we can not repeat idiocy or errors in the future.
That being said; Ancient Astronauts
