    often i wanted to go backwards in time, to the good old days, the 90's. i could be super rich as well.

    i think we can backwards time travel, if we convert the human body to positrons.

    My question is, will consciousness "stick" (be contained) to this new, positron body, or disperse into the fields of the universe.

    Second, will consciousness "feel" different, as if we are sucked into control, like robots, with no free will, submissive and dominated by our backwards time travel.

    Where will the Earth be when you travel back in time?

    hawkin's positron theory seems to loosely imply a deterministic universe with a lack of divergence.
    this is what i say when, backwards time travel may remove our feeling of agency as we are locked into exactly the timeline (and positions) as before.

    However this could be wrong. Backwards time travel may offer a divergent past, in which we have different pasts to choose from an enter, a near infinitude of different timelines diverging from each other. in any case, the actual position of earth would likely be the same, even if human social situations are somewhat different.

    . Sounds like nonsense!

    People back in the day doubted airplanes as well.

    Positrons are essentially electrons with a positive charge. They do not time travel.

    i have googled positrons according to the late Hawkin's theory, in which it is asserted that they are electrons which are travelling backwards within the fabric of time, essentially, electrons travelling backward in time. This information was found on various forums and websites, one of which was Quora but I have forgotten where I had found it elsewhere.

    So, do you have a system for converting humans to positrons, getting them to the time you want them to be at, then converting them back into the same humans they were before the first conversion?

    I mean, I could do that on any give day, but are you good enough?

    I do actually.

    First it starts with genetic engineering.

    We have to create a new human which has bigger better, and more dense neurons than the smartest human.
    Imagine Newton, but with a brain with twice the weight.

    Someone like that could easily think of a solution, in terms of matter-anti-matter conversion.

    Tell me you know how to do this.

    So, you "know how to do X" because you can think of the idea of "making a super-smart human who will figure out an answer"?

    I guess we know how to do everything then.

    Actually iirc it was Feynman not Hawking (note the spelling) back in the 1940's who conceived of anti-particles as time-reversed particles. That idea has long fallen out of favour with particle physicists. It implied anti-particles e.g. positron would anti-gravitate, which practically no-one believes true. And btw your #1 is utter nonsense. This thread belongs elsewhere.

    Only Aliens can reverse time.

    So, duly moved from General Science & Technology to Free Thoughts, but without any notification, or customary temporary retention of thread title in original location with redirection indicator. Why am I not surprised. Discretionary powers can be so convenient.

    At which point it will become a rapidly expanding cloud (as positrons have a positive charge and would mutually repel each other). The positrons would then mutually annihilate with the electrons in the surrounding matter, releasing an amount of energy roughly the equivalent of a 1.5 gigaton nuclear bomb (most definitely not good for your health.)

    Travel back in time? Not bad, if someone wants to change something from her past. In my case, I'd wish to see the future.

    Consciousness is a property of bodies, it can't "disperse".

    Nope. Positrons exist, are often observed within colliders, and do not travel backwards in time. (In fact, antimatter contains positrons; it behaves about like you'd expect.)
