Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day History: 

Time travel is an important fixture in the science fiction we know and love today, as well as a consideration for scientists trying to crack its possibilities. But despite its appearance in numerous movies, books and TV shows, it’s a relatively new idea but the concept of time travelling has existed for centuries. The earliest mentions of time travel were always about moving forward. Texts like the Ancient Indian ‘Mahabharata’ used a version in which people fell asleep or visited a god and when they regained their senses found that they had jumped forward into the future. 

The tradition of time travel and time travel paradox stories dates back centuries. In the 19th century, classics such as Rip van Winkle by Washington Irving, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain, Looking Backward by Edward Bellamy, and so forth, delighted readers. They could be considered examples of novels involving time displacement, via either sleep or some kind of disruption. However, it was Wells’ The Time Machine, published in 1895, that embodied the first description of a controlled voyage through time using technology.  

In other stories from this period, people also start to be able to move backward in time. In Mark Twain’s 1889 satire “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court,” a blow to the head propels an engineer back to the reign of the legendary British monarch. Objects that can send someone through time begin to appear as well, mainly clocks, such as in Edward Page Mitchell’s 1881 story “The Clock that Went Backwards” or Lewis Carrol’s 1889 children’s fantasy “Sylvie and Bruno,” where the characters possess a watch that is a type of time machine. 

Time travel stories became yet again more complex in 1941 with Robert A Heinlen’s short story “By His Bootstraps” which showed the protagonist occupying multiple time-frames at once through time travel, and therefore intersecting with different versions of himself. So people gave been fascinated with the concept of time travelling since ages and to celebrate that same fascination Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day was created in 2007 by the Koala Wallop online community.

Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day Significance: 

Humans have a cognitive ability that no other animal seems to have. We can mentally time-travel. At will, we can think back to the past, reimagining our first day at college or eating a meal last week. Then, just as rapidly, we can switch to picturing the future, imagining our next holiday or drinking a cup of tea in an hour’s time. The ability to time-travel mentally has allowed us to imagine different futures and to produce the complex world we live in today. By recombining old memories, we are able to project ourselves forward in time, giving us endless combinations from which to select the most plausible possibilities.

However, it is uncertain if time travel to the past is physically possible, and such travel, if at all feasible, may give rise to questions of causality. Forward time travel, outside the usual sense of the perception of time, is an extensively observed phenomenon and well-understood within the framework of special relativity and general relativity. However, making one body advance or delay more than a few milliseconds compared to another body is not feasible with current technology. As for backward time travel, it is possible to find solutions in general relativity that allow for it, such as a rotating black hole. 

Some theories, most notably special and general relativity, suggest that suitable geometries of spacetime or specific types of motion in space might allow time travel into the past and future if these geometries or motions were possible.  In technical papers, physicists discuss the possibility of closed timelike curves, which are world lines that form closed loops in spacetime, allowing objects to return to their own past. There are known to be solutions to the equations of general relativity that describe spacetimes which contain closed timelike curves, such as Gödel spacetime, but the physical plausibility of these solutions is uncertain.

This is a great opportunity to really imagine what it would be like to travel back into the past and experience history for yourself. Where would you go, and what would you see, just this thought makes us very exciting and creative. As it is so much fun to get into character and walk in the shoes of someone else – especially someone with such incredible power. Pretending to be a time traveler means you can inject some creativity into your day! So this is the best time for you to unleash your creativity of mind by thinking about your own time travelling experience with you being the lead. It is a funny thing to do and can give you a whole new insight view for your life.

So get a group of friends together, and hit the town! Be sure to do everything a time traveler from the past or future might do: ask strangers what year it is and respond in horror, regard everything you see with curious fascination and a touch of skittishness for good measure.

You can also use this opportunity to relate more to the concept of time travelling. And you can do it watching some of the popular movies or series based on the concept of time travelling. So enjoy this day by binge watching some of the best content available on time travelling as it will also help in increasing your knowledge for the subject as well as some movies or series can be very educational too with lots of entertainment. 

Most Searched FAQs on Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day: 

1. When is Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day celebrated? 

Pretend To Be A Time Traveler Day is annually celebrated on 8th December. 

2. Is time a paradox? 

A temporal paradox, time paradox, or time travel paradox is a paradox, an apparent contradiction, or logical contradiction associated with the idea of time and time travel. In physics, temporal paradoxes fall into two broad groups: consistency paradoxes exemplified by the grandfather paradox; and causal loops. 

3. How is time travel possible? 

According to NASA, time travel is possible, just not in the way you might expect. Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity says time and motion are relative to each other, and nothing can go faster than the speed of light, which is 186,000 miles per second. Time travel happens through what’s called “time dilation.”
