The exact activities we do can not be seen or modified through time travel as our activities are not saved anywhere in the universe. When we think about time travel we think of it as a memory, storage device where our activities are saved so we can go past to see, and modify it.
Let’s talk about activities: what we do, For instance, I am submitting my thoughts to the New York Times at 11:21 AM, 10th September, in Bangladeshi time, and I will be doing it again if I get a reply for doing it a couple of times. Here my activities are somewhat identical but my activities are gone. In terms of Physics and Chemistry, I can say that we neither create nor destroy force or energy rather it transforms into another form. So what I am doing is transforming into another form that is not saved anywhere in the universe’s perspective. Saving does not mean storage or memory card devices like we do with our cameras, and so on. If we go back in time, then how and where we will find our activities? Nowhere, because our activities are not saved in the universe or haven’t been found yet. If we would like to travel time to see the structural elements (buildings, monuments, countries, White House) then there is no need to time travel. The president of the USA is right now in India, and he can see things like it was before in the USA after coming back to his country: his home, office, roads even his clothes if they are not destroyed or modified by any means. The activities the president did or does have gone or transformed into another form and are nowhere to be found within the universe in terms of time travel. No matter how many times he repeats his activities respectively.
Unfortunately, when we think about time travel and seeing or touching things from our past, we think of it like a film, mobile or electronic devices. In this manner, we can pause, rewind, or forward because everything is saved, and preserved. On the contrary, our daily activities are not in the universe’s perspective and it is not possible to while living within the universe, specifically on Earth. The storage, and saving process, these ideas we get from our religion where God saves everything so He can punish or reward. Furthermore, we can not ask God to provide us with the activities so that we can time travel to go past or future to change or modify them as He is only the one who has saved our activities where He knows better.
In conclusion, we can not time travel and see touch, or feel ourselves or others as long as our activities are not saved in the universe or we can not find where these things are saved in the universe. Our universe is not a mobile device where our activities are saved in storage. We can pause, rewind, or, forward as per our wish. There are more things to look at than meets the eye, for our life-changing Scientists!
This is my maiden attempt to submit to The New York Times in the Opinion section on 11th September 2023. As I have not received any feedback from them or experts, you may take it only as the opinion of a Bangladeshi English Language and Literature student. I use the picture from Interstellar movie as this movie is more than a science fiction movie to me
