Dear al)L)
Excuse me being in an awkward mood.
It only just occurred to me, this topic is "A Practical Time Machine".
Now I do accept that in the broadest sense time machines have astronomical\cosmological connections. However, admitting that I have been guilty of mentioning non astronomical topics on this friendly chat-line myself, I'll now ask the question,
"Is chatting about a practical time machine appropriate to this forum ?"
Best of luck from Cliff

Hi,
Can"t leave it alone tho :roll:
Been doing a lot of digging/googling whilst I"m not at work (don"t believe in time travel for a minute) but this makes interesting reading

Dear al(L)
Assumimg the Universe is infinte in every respect, we might just happen to live in one of the bits where time machines do not work.
So anyone clever enough to actually make a practical time machine might have to cart it to another part of the universe where time machines can work before it becomes a working practical time machine.
Best of luck from Cliff
