General characteristics of Time Travel Experiments
What should we think of, when talking about the footprints or marks that time travel experiments would leave behind in history? What should we look for, that might indicate that an event could be the result of a future time travel experiment? We could devide characteristics of time travel into general characteristics that would apply to all events, caused by travel experiments and more specific characteristics that depend on the theory behind the science and the objectives of the experiment.
- Events and consequences without cause or logical explanation
- Relationship with the future
- Avoids impact on history.
- Happen frequently
Events and consequences without a cause or logical explanation.
Let's say, you could travel back to a past century. That means that you would exist in a time before you were born and your existence would seem to have no cause, no logical explanation.
Relationship with the future.
Travelers have knowledge of the future and could possibly share that knowledge resulting in prophecy. Another form of relationship with the future would be for instance the sightings of flying objects like UFO's, that suposedly use futuristic technology, that we might happen to invent many years ahead of now.
Avoids impact on history.
With their knowledge of the future and their existence in the past time travelers might change history with unpredictable and possibly grave consequences. That might explain why time travelers would not really be interested in revealing themselves, leaving clear hints, or openly communicate with us.
If negative consequences can be limited to a minimum or - even better - completely avoided, than many, many experiments will be conducted and it should be possible to find evidence, remnants or footprints of these experiments in every continent and in every century.
The only way to proof an experiment is by documenting it. Although the resulting document might seem to have a different purpose (book of prophecy?) it might actually contain certain encrypted, concealed clues that future scientists can use as proof (bible code?).
