In Hindu mythology, the Mahabharata mentions the story of King Raivata Kakudmiwho travels to heaven to meet the creator Brahma and is surprised to learn when he returns to Earth that many ages have passed.
The Payasi Sutta tells of one of the Buddha 's chief disciples, Kumara Kassapawho explains to the skeptic Payasi that time in the Heavens passes differently than on Earth. After three days, he returns home to his village and finds himself years in the future, where he has been forgotten, his house is in ruins, and his family has died.
When waking up he returned home but found none of the people he knew, and no one believed his claims of who he was. Prolonged sleep, like the more familiar time machineis used as a means of time travel in these stories.
Samuel Madden 's Memoirs of the Twentieth Century is a series of letters from British ambassadors in and to diplomats in the past, conveying the political and religious conditions of the future.
An Anachronism, written for the Dublin Literary Magazine  by an anonymous author in He encounters the Venerable Bede in a monastery and explains to him the developments of the coming centuries.
However, the story never makes it clear whether these events are real or a dream. Alexander, son of Philip of Macedon by Alexander Veltman published in Fezziwig dance in a vision shown to Scrooge by the Ghost of Christmas Past. Charles Dickens 's A Christmas Carol has early depictions of time travel in both directions, as the protagonist, Ebenezer Scrooge, is transported to Christmases past and future.
Other stories employ the same template, where a character naturally goes to sleep, and upon waking up find themselves in a different time. In this story, the protagonist is transported to the prehistoric past by the magic of a "lame demon" a French pun on Boitard's namewhere he encounters a Plesiosaur and an apelike ancestor and is able to interact with ancient creatures.
This may have been the first story to feature an alternate history created as a result of time travel. However, the mechanism borders on fantasy. An unusual clock, when wound, runs backwards and transports people nearby back in time. The author does not explain the origin or properties of the clock.
Wells 's The Time Machine popularized the concept of time travel by mechanical means. Many in the scientific community believe that backward time travel is highly unlikely. Any theory that would allow time travel would introduce potential problems of causality.
Some physicists, such as Novikov and Deutsch, suggested that these sorts of temporal paradoxes can be avoided through the Novikov self-consistency principle or to a variation of the many-worlds interpretation with interacting worlds.
There exist exact solutions to these equations that include closed time-like curveswhich are world lines that intersect themselves; some point in the causal future of the world line is also in its causal past, a situation which is akin to time travel.
Whether general relativity forbids closed time-like curves for all realistic conditions is still being researched. Wormhole Wormholes are a hypothetical warped spacetime which are permitted by the Einstein field equations of general relativity.
One end of the wormhole is accelerated to some significant fraction of the speed of light, perhaps with some advanced propulsion systemand then brought back to the point of origin.
Alternatively, another way is to take one entrance of the wormhole and move it to within the gravitational field of an object that has higher gravity than the other entrance, and then return it to a position near the other entrance.
For both of these methods, time dilation causes the end of the wormhole that has been moved to have aged less, or become "younger", than the stationary end as seen by an external observer; however, time connects differently through the wormhole than outside it, so that synchronized clocks at either end of the wormhole will always remain synchronized as seen by an observer passing through the wormhole, no matter how the two ends move around.
One significant limitation of such a time machine is that it is only possible to go as far back in time as the initial creation of the machine; : According to current theories on the nature of wormholes, construction of a traversable wormhole would require the existence of a substance with negative energy, often referred to as " exotic matter ".Dreamtime (also dream time, dream-time) is a term devised by early anthropologists to refer to a religio-cultural worldview attributed to Australian Aboriginal beliefs.
It was originally used by Francis Gillen, quickly adopted by his colleague Baldwin Spencer and thereafter popularised by A. P. Elkin, who, however, later revised his views.
