Stop using the phrase 'time travel'. Use 'movement travel' instead.

Again, it's an observed phenomenon, and to be able to observe it at all, you have to be in a separate reference frame.

The causal factor is (ultimately) the upper limit on light speed.

Sound is absolutely a wave. On the other hand, EM is both a wave AND an particle and hence it is neither, really.

IIRC, inertia ("resistance to acceleration") is explained by the Higgs field. Not that that's much of an explanation to us laymen.

So nothing curves to tell how matter to move, then matter tells nothing how to curve. So how does the vacuum and matter change each other?

oh god, higgs field fudge. A macguffin.

Virtual particles, virtual photons, dirac sea of potentiality for a random pair production to occur are all separate from the higgs boson field? Seems like that's where the missing cauality fits in.

Former macguffin.

Matter undergoing curved motion (like an orbit) is traveling in a straight line, from the perspective of the matter.

I guess we can conclude that the vacuum is:
1)not empty
2)perhaps is an energy itself.

Well known that all isolated electrically charged particles have a furious exchange with the vacuum known as virtual pairs and virtual photons. All considered not real figures because the pairs annihiliate without producing gamma. Just potentiality.

Is that the hidden connection that matter has in a relationship with the vacuum to produce resistance to momentum?

If Higgs Bosons are producing the energy for mass in matter...is that exchange being interrupted to produce a secondary force known as inertia?

Are the virtual pairs real and have a connection to higgs bosons? That sure would blow up conservation forever.

Obviously I think it's safe to assume that momentum is a energy storage mechanism like flywheel energy storage systems. How can a particle store up momentum at all? Is there some homogenous field of near infinite energy that is becoming asymmetric forming inertia? Obviously the great fudge is the higgs boson field. However how that exactly produces mass in matter is still unknown.

So just like photons are massless until they produce photon pressure and then have mass, or like massless higgs bosons which are massless until they interact with matter then give mass. Surprise!

Still doesn't explain the interaction mechanism.

Time Travel sounds more old-school. And plus , most of us enjoy the trilogy of "back to the future".

Technical definition of time is relative movement. Ticks of a second hand on a clock in relation to the sun moving across the sky. Car moving in relation to the buildings on the road it travels.

If true, then how does general relativity and special relativity actually cause changes in relative movement? Seems like relativity gave up on trying to figure it out.

HOW does something near a large sun or blackhole actually stop in it's tracks for billions of years?

Time travel is really 'Movement travel'.

This is real reason physicists don't think backwards 'movement travel' can happen. Only slowing of it so you see the world outside of the field speed up in relation to yourself.

Of course physicists proved that time slows on jet airplanes in relation to the ground however nobody explains why. Since they lack the 'why' then why couldn't we go back in movement(time)?

Time travel is the concept where our understanding of causality fails. Imagine if you were driving a car and suddenly it would stop for no reason or back up for no reason while you see the whole world around ya reverse their direction of movement. Would seem like magic.

So again, what can possibly cause things to stop? I mean gravity causes things to move towards each other, not stop moving entirely. So again I ask why?

side note: 'energy' isn't an answer.
Can you just STFU already.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is the esssence of whatever it is you are saying bro,

You are not here to help us travel in time, just keep all your terminologies to yourself man.
