It begun like this.
A friend and I were in my room watching a film when I got a sudden feel of sadness knowing that I would most likely never be able to back in time. I told him that one day, I was at least going to be even a small help to the discovery of time travel into the past. I looked towards the future, however not far into it, only a few seconds, and decided that every time we are moving, we are moving into the future, and that is fact.
I then realized that there must be an opposite to speed. My friend said slow, but of course he did not understand that I meant speed in general. He later said reverse, but again, reserve, is just a speed in the other direction, no matter how fast or slow it is, in any direction, it's still speed, and you are still moving towards the future.
I thought that being still, may have been acceptable, however the earth still spins no matter if you are standing still or are moving. Even then, the sun spins around the center of the milky way, which we are spinning around also, which is probably also spinning around something else.
But even if we could stand still, or be completely still, outside of any gravitational force, that is still not the opposite of speed. It's like 'neutral' in a car, or 'maybe' in an answer.
Do you think there is, or could be an opposite of speed, I mean if you think about it, there has to be, the only problem is that it may be one of those unthinkable answers, waiting to be discovered.
The idea being that if we found the opposite to speed, since speed moves us into the future, the opposite would move us back into the past.
Therefore, time travel to the past?
Note* I know that something similar to this has been posted on the forum, because I searched before I posted, however it wasn't getting to the same point I have in my mind. So I posted anyway.
