Students and faculty could login and store files on MIT’s IBM 7094 computer (See Figure 1).

The Time Machine - More a book about Victorian society than that of the future’, is this a fair reflection of The Time Machine. `“Long ago I had a vague inkling of a machine…that shall travel indifferently in any direction of Space and Time, as the driver determines.” Filby contented himself with laughter. ‘’But I have experimental verification,” said the Time Traveller. ` Wells was born into British poverty to a working class family: father a gardener, shopkeeper and cricketer; mother a maid and housekeeper.

Time Travel: The Theory of Relativity - Those wishing to preserve the possibility of time travel must discard any hope of traveling to the past, which we will henceforth refer to as “past-travel,” due to the paradoxical problems involved in the journey. Of the many paradoxes that plague theories of past-travel, the double occupation paradox proves most severe, not only due to its underlying physics violations, but also the fact that those who argue against the paradox have failed to acknowledge its severity. The paradox holds that a time machine cannot past-travel because it would collide with its past self, as no two things can inhabit the same place at the same time....   [tags: Einstein, paradox]
