Question: If UFO's contain time travelers from our future, but not E!.T!.'s, what are the philosophical implications!?
Consider that if you've ever had a UFO close encounter, it could be your future self, made virtually immortal by medical breakthroughs, returning from a distant future to observe your younger self!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

TIME ACTUALLY EXISTS!!! since there are supposed time travelers and all!.

Ok, but given that you mean, another "instance" of yourself, then it would prove philosopher's right and religious scientists wrong; once and for all!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Their are many theories on time travel, one of which saying that the time machine that the "future" us would be using could not go back in time to before the time machine was created!. Right now time travel is only just theoretically possible, and most of the theories out their seem a little far fetched, and the technology needed to create "time travel" will next exist for, most likely, our lifetime!. Even when it does get created at first it would only allow someone to go back in time just a few seconds!.

also, their are theories on the "casualties" (basically the bad implications) time travel would have on the past and in the future, take into mind the grandfather theory where if you were to travel back in time and kill your grandfather you wouldn't exist, so the time travel would have never occurred!. Its a very interesting field of science, and I'd research it more if you were very interested in it :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

i dont know what youre asking!.!.!. but it could simply be implying that humans are the only life in this universe!.

if time travel is possible, and we can agree that all life will tend to evolve and become more intelligent, on the scale of an infinite timeline EVENTUALLY that being will learn how to time travel!. so since we SEE a human in an UFO we know time travel is possible so we can assume that any other living being would also be able to learn hwo to do it!. so in OUR time we should see every sort of life from now to infinity coming back to see us!. since we only saw humans in the UFO its implying that even with infinite time humans were the only intelligent life in the universe (or we would also eventaully see others)Www@QuestionHome@Com

I don't think it would be possible because it's not just about a 'when', but a 'where' as well!. So in order to go back in time, our future selves would have to travel a great distance in the opposite direction our planet is moving!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

it be sad in a way!.
as it would mean we are truly and beyond a doubt alone in this universe!.

than i would take a good look at my future self!.
and tell her what a great job she'd done!.=PWww@QuestionHome@Com

nothing it would just be freaky!. If we were to time travel we would probably have to create copies of previous realities in order for the same molecules to be in two places at the same time!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
