WE HAZ IT.
Cemeteries, photographs, motion pictures; all of these are genuine time machines. The only complaint is the amount of data compression these methods rely upon to bring tiny bits of the past to us. Imagine what we could see if we were able to harness a form of quantum extrapolation to the data we already have: we could reconstruct entire moments from the past.
The key to travelling back in time isn’t dropping a rope into the past, it’s building a data rich ladder to the future. We are all potential time machines, we only need to stop, look, record and remember.
