What happens within time travel over great amounts of time?

I've experienced an hour, a few minutes. I don't have any experience with years or days.

    Don't forget the number one rule--TIME IS RELATIVE. The "Classic physics" crowd still has problems with that.

    every body has a different answer for that one, depending on which field of thought you choose.

    not really sure myself, since i've had limited experience in that field, but i'll tell you what: you should probably be charting your data as much as possible. carry a watch that tells both time and date wherever you go, and when you jump, make a note of what time it was where you WERE (approximated, of course), and where you end up. be sure you keep the master entries in the same location, so it won't move no matter what time frame you end up in.

    you know, it's funny, but this conversation sort of reminded me of a show i watched recently:

    it had both it's deep moments, and its mad scientist moments, but throughout it all, there were good explanations for everything [and lots of big words, so i didn't get bored :) ]. the opening line to the show was this:

    "Consider, can the universe be justifiably called infinite? Doubtful. It may not have a discernible end, but it had a beginning; and its component parts definitely have a limited cosmological shelf life. Splitting hairs or not; if history tells us anything it's that scientists often make very poor poets. We're all just a ship of fools chasing phantoms, heedless of what really underwrites natural law..."

    I'm not sure if we have the dna codes to do that yet.

    If we do, then there's some sort of memory chip that doesn't allow re-call.

    Either that, or I'm like you....a few minutes, a few hours or a moment of stopping time is possible.....but long distance time, I don't know how to travel.

    I've had time travel dreams, and received validation in the waking world over decades of time. But that's not the same thing.

    Good question.

    Years seem like days over long periods.

    Anything that happens to you is in your own perception of reality.

    who can travel without spending time? it's all the same - fast or slow.
