If time travel is invented, would a time traveler come back to get you?
A writer nicknamed Time Travel Jake has created a simple “Come Back & Get Me” website where anyone can leave messages for time travelers. The hope is that someday, one of these visitors will come find you in the past and let you visit the future.
“When I was a young boy, I once day dreamt about time travel. I must have spent some mental energy on this concept because one day I had this epiphany: though I cannot time travel right now, this does not foretell that it is indefinitely impossible. So if time travel is possible at some point in the future, all I have to do is ask them to: “Come back and get me”. How was I going to ask this question? My best answer, leave it on a note attached to my last will and testament. I would then hope of it being pasted down, surviving the hundreds, thousands, maybe millions of years before time travel becomes a reality.”
Follow this link to visit the time travel message site and leave your letter. The creator acknowledged that “there are countless paradoxes my theory would encounter,” but added his hope that “future time-farers have figured it all out.”
One reader responded:
I’ve already been contacted. Thanks a bunch! 🙂 I’ve made arrangements to retire in 1920’s Paris. I need to keep it quiet, though, because my great grandson is taking quite a bit of risk to do this for me. It’s not exactly condoned by the government.
Finally, the creator of the site added a message–reminding us all to dream a little bigger about the future…
I don’t doubt my mission is preposterous, but that is not my only theme. When I look around me, I see a bland world void of imagination. My hope with sharing is to find others who have open minds and do not take this life so seriously. Who knows what may happen?
