TIME control and time travel which is the Key application of the mysterious Cosmic strings would be possible in near future, according to the world’s top physicists.
Cosmic Strings are a hypothetical 1-dimensional (spatially) topological defect in the fabric of space-time left over from the formation of the universe. The interaction could create fields of closed timelike curves permitting backwards time travel.
J Richard Gott, an astrophysicist at Princeton University who first conceptualised cosmic strings, said: “Cosmic strings are either infinite or they’re in loops, with no ends.
Some scientists have suggested using “cosmic strings” to construct a time machine. By maneuvering two cosmic strings close together – or possibly just one string plus a black hole – it is theoretically possible to create a whole array of “closed time-like curves.” Your best bet is to fire two infinitely long cosmic strings past each other at very high speeds, then fly your ship around them in a carefully calculated figure eight. In theory, you would be able to emerge anywhere, anytime!
Albert Einstein theorised that if you were to situate yourself on the edge of a black hole, which has such a powerful gravitational pull that not even light can escape, time would pass more slowly.
The strong gravity of a cosmic string could also have the same effect, and in turn allowing time travel.
Gravitational lensing of a galaxy by a straight section of a cosmic string would produce two identical, undistorted images of the galaxy. In 2003 a group led by Mikhail Sazhin reported the accidental discovery of two seemingly identical galaxies very close together in the sky, leading to speculation that a cosmic string had been found. However, observations by the Hubble Space Telescope in January 2005 showed them to be a pair of similar galaxies, not two images of the same galaxy. A cosmic string would produce a similar duplicate image of fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, which might be detectable by the upcoming Planck Surveyor mission.
The second piece of evidence supporting cosmic string theory is a phenomenon observed in observations of the “double quasar” called Q0957+561A, B. Originally discovered by Dennis Walsh, Bob Carswell, and Ray Weymann in 1979, the double image of this quasar is caused by a galaxy positioned between it and the Earth. The gravitational lens effect of this intermediate galaxy bends the quasar’s light so that it follows two paths of different lengths to Earth. The result is that we see two images of the same quasar, one arriving a short time after the other (about 417.1 days later).
Is it possible that today’s physicists are simply rediscovering the ancient wisdom that shows the sense of wonder that connects us with the universe and God?
In general, the Judaeo-Christian concept, based on the Bible, is that time is linear, with a beginning, the act of creation by God. The Christian view assumes also an end, the eschaton, expected to happen when Jesus returns to earth in the Second Coming to judge the living and the dead. This will be the consummation of the world and time. St Augustine’s City of God was the first developed application of this concept to world history. The Christian view is that God is uncreated and eternal so that He and the supernatural world are outside time and exist in eternity. Christian Science defines time as “error” or illusion.
Ancient cultures such as Incan, Mayan, Hopi, and other Native American Tribes, plus the Babylonian, Ancient Greek, Hindu, Buddhist, Jainist, and others have a concept of a wheel of time, that regards time as cyclical and quantic consisting of repeating ages that happen to every being of the Universe between birth and extinction.
The Greek language denotes two distinct principles, Chronos and Kairos. The former refers to numeric, or chronological, time. The latter, literally “the right or opportune moment,” relates specifically to metaphysical or Divine time. In theology, Kairos is qualitative, as opposed to quantitative.
