Time and Causation in Gödel’s Universe.

By John L. Bell

In which he said.....

**In 1949 the great logician Kurt Gödel constructed the first mathematical**

models of the universe in which travel into the past is, in theory at least,

possible. Within the framework of Einstein’s general theory of relativity

Gödel produced cosmological solutions to Einstein’s field equations

which contain closed time-like curves, that is, curves in spacetime which,

despite being closed, still represent possible paths of bodies. An object

moving along such a path would travel back into its own past, to the very

moment at which it “began” the journey. More generally, Gödel showed

that, in his “universe”, for any two points P and Q on a body’s track

through spacetime (its world line), such that P temporally precedes Q,

there is a timelike curve linking P and Q on which Q temporally precedes

P. This means that, in principle at least, one could board a “time

machine” and travel to any point of the past.

Now in that short paragraph he absolutely shoots down your own thoughts on time travel, and which you highlighted in another provocatively mis-titled thread, as has become so obvious with those with pseudo views on science and the nature of reality.

He does go on to say though that....

Irrespective he concludes......

So while proving time travel is possible, he concludes that time is not real, which I find breathtakingly illogical.

That certainly refutes all that farsight has said about Godel and other misinterpretations and dishonesty.

**"Time Travel is Science Fiction" by Farsight:**He does go on to say though that....

**"Gödel inferred, in consonance (as he observes) with the views of****Parmenides, Kant and the modern idealists, that under these****circumstances there could be no such thing as an objective lapse of time,****that time or, more generally, change, is an illusion arising from our****special mode of perception"**which does align with your own thoughts.Irrespective he concludes......

**"We conclude that, if time travel into the past is possible (and****feasible), and no restrictions are placed on the purposes to which such****travel is put, then the universe must branch. Accordingly we have three****possibilities:****1. Time travel is impossible.****2. Time travel is possible, with no “changing of the past”.****3. Time travel is possible, and the universe ramifies. "**So while proving time travel is possible, he concludes that time is not real, which I find breathtakingly illogical.
