In The Tales of Sage & Savant, Dr. Sage and Professor Savant send their conscious minds through time and space to inhabit other bodies. They retain those experiences when they return to their own bodies. Part of our theory behind this mode of time travel is the current theory that thoughts are quantum objects rather than physical aspects chained to the cerebral matter of our brains. Recent tests have aimed at proving quantum objects can travel through time. Therefore if thoughts are quantum, they would also be able to travel through time. This is great fodder for Science Fiction!
Sage and Savant gallivanted through Season One with travels that ranged from the near future (NYC 1899 – episode 4) to the distant past (Pompeii 79 – episode 10). They even went into the distant future in episode 11, but it was never determined exactly how far forward they went. So, how far can they go?
There are numerous books with characters that travel through time. However, some of the best in the genre where published years ago. They are still incredible reads today. Here is a list of time travel books we highly recommend you read (again).
George Hegel was an early 19th century philosopher and one of the great systematic thinkers in Western philosophy. He developed his triadic method (Entwicklung) in which philosophy would not contradict experience.
In the Space.com article, Time Travel: Theories, Paradoxes & Possibilities by Elizabeth Howell, she discusses Einstein’s theories in relation to worm holes, infinite cylinders, black holes, cosmic strings and even time machines. This is a great article pulling together much of the current awareness of our universe and how they relate to Einstein’s theories.
In “Should Time Travel Be A Moral Imperative?” Bruce Dorminey asks the question of MIT quantum mechanic Seth Lloyd, “If you think you can go back to change something, clearly you would be tempted to do this. The question is would it do any good?” While this is an interesting discussion, it doesn’t really ask the question about moral superiority.
What does it mean to travel through time and how does that affect relationships? Certainly there have been stories and films that have dealt with this question, but is there a definitive answer?
