I hear people talk about time travelling as jumping from 1 point to another; say, 500 years into the future in an instant. Well, what if the jumps are actually a lot smaller? My idea is so simple it's almost laughable, but the more you think about it the more it makes sense:

Technically we're always time travelling, a second at a time, to the future. If we weren't, we'd just be frozen in space and nothing would ever happen. The way I see it, time travel is like accretion (planet formation): it doesn't happen all at once. Dust bits clump into rocks which become boulders, etc. Moreover, since time only goes in 1 direction (I think Einstein postulated that), travel to the past is impossible. We already know gravity can make time go slower the closer you get to it's source: for example clocks run nearly 10 minutes faster in Low Earth Orbit (where most manned space flights and satellites are located) then they do on the ground. I think we've sent a satellite to a black hole and while time slows wwaayy down it still inches it's way forward.

So will we ever go back in time? Probably not. Going back even 1 second would likely take all the energy/matter (matter and energy are interchangeable) in the universe. While it'd be really cool, backwards time travel will have to remain in the realm of science fiction.
My hypothosis
Couldn’t think of a better title.

Probably not the smartest idea to put this on dA but I really don't know where else to put it.

Dark matter. The stuff that (allegedly) fills the universe, yet it cannot be seen, felt or detected. So what's out there?

I understand it's hypothetical, but I tend to hear it talked about as theory (dictionary definition- a theory is a group of tested propositions; often confused with hypothesis). Personally I think dark matter is something basically made-up to make the equations work. It supposedly fills the universe and is responsible for it's expansion, but where is it?

I realized I should probably do some more research first, so I turned to Wikipedia. "Dark matter... accounts for most of the matter in the universe." "... inferred..." "... hypothesized to account for discrepancies in calculations." Here they say it's hypothetical, but on The Universe and How the Universe Works (Science channel-I'm quadripalegic so I don't work) they talk about it like it's a sure thing.

So what do I think is responsible for the universe's expansion? Simple. Conservation of momentum; not the stuff in the universe, but the fabric of space-time itself.

I've been quadriplegic and mute for a few years now, and there's typically 2 things people (incorrectly) assume when they meet me: that I'm hard of hearing (all your yelling is doing is making you look like an idiot) or that I'm stupid (1 2 4 8 16 32 64...). It's annoying, but I get it so I don't get too mad; I wasn't disabled for the first 19 years of my life and probably would've done the same.

Quite honestly, it makes me chuckle. These airheads either try to avoid me like I'm patient 0, talk to me really slow and really loud or assume I'm too stupid to understand them and address my caregiver instead. It's sad, really. Just because I'm in a wheelchair and can't speak doesn't make me stupid; one of the smartest people in the world, Stephen Hawking, is in a wheelchair and can't speak. Maybe they're the dumb ones.

Please don't lecture me about this. After 20 years I will NOT change my mind.

I've been an athiest for years, and one thing I've run into time and again is hate and bigotry. "You don't follow god, so you must worship Satan!" Um, no. I don't believe in Satan either. I don't believe in heaven/hell, angels/demons or the tooth fairy. I believe that when you die, nothing happens. "Then why do anything good?" Because it's the right thing to do.

A REALLY big misconception is no god = no morals. Not so. I have morals, they're just not determined by a sky wizard that wipes out the planet in a world-class hissy fit. "Thou shalt not kill"- god is a GIGANTIC hypocrite. A few people piss him off and he wipes them ALL out. It's this hypocrisy that makes me scratch my head.
