Black Holes Are Natural Time Machines

According to Stephen Hawking, "Black holes are indeed, natural time machines."

A black hole is a star much like our sun, that has died and imploded into itself creating a massive and powerful vacuum that swallows up anything that crosses its path. Scientists believe that the powerful implosion of a dead star actually creates a puncture in the fabric of space and time.

In a "Mail Online" article interview, Stephen Hawking describes a black hole that is in the middle of the Milky Way, located about 26,000 light years from our Earth. The black hole is extremely large, about the size of four suns that have been crushed into one single point by its powerful gravity. Nothing can escape a black hole, not even light.

Slowing of Time

This particular black hole demonstrates a dramatic effect on time, slowing it down more than all other objects in the galaxy. Still, no object can come close enough to the black hole to test the actual effects it might have. The gravitational pull will draw anything that comes close to it like vacuum, and will completely crush the object.

In order for a human-operated machine to use this black hole to travel through time, there would have to be a way to keep a spacecraft on the outer ring where it would not succumb to the crushing gravity and intense presser of the black hole.

The scientific thought today is that if a spacecraft were sent to orbit the outer ring of this massive black hole, time for those inside the craft would slow down to approximately half the speed of time on Earth. This would make it impossible for the crew of any such experiment to return to the same Earth in which they departed. Everything on the planet would have doubled in age to that of the crew.

Frank Tipler's Time Machine

Frank Tipler is a Mathematical Physicist and Cosmologist at Tulane University, who discovered a mathematical equation previously undiscovered within the "Theory of Relativity." Tipler's calculations have revealed that time travel exists within the theory of relativity, in which "time like curves," are present. His discovery has led to the theory of a time travel machine that would operate based on an object rotating around an infinite cylinder.

The Theory

Although the "Tipler Cylinder," is hypothetical and based only on theory, metaphysical scientist believe that it would only allow for time travel at the length of the cylinder. For the cylinder to be productive and lead to more lengthy areas of time travel the cylinder would have to be an infinite size along with use of negative energy which is currently out of reach of becoming an actuality.

Mr. Tipler's study of possible time travel involves the theory that any object rotating around a "Tipler Cylinder," of infinite length, would allow for travel backwards in time.


The Tipler time machine is impractical do to the infinite size involving the construction of such a cylinder. Still, scientists are consistently making new discoveries that could eventually reveal an equation that would alter the necessary size of the cylinder making it much smaller, and far more feasible. This type of discovery would allow for possible construction of a Tipler time machine.

Time Travel and the Large Hadron Collider

Concerns about CERN

Over the past several years, there has been much speculation about the creation of a Large Hadron Collider that has been constructed between the borders of Switzerland and France, with four major connectors in the French territory.

Most of us only learned of "Project Alice," or, "‎A Large Ion Collider Experiment," a few years ago. Since that time, there have been several speculations about the particle accelerator, including concerns voiced by Stephen Hawking, in regards to the possible discovery of a "God Particle," Hawkins stated that "Higgs Boson has the potential to destroy the entire universe."

This, of course, created quite a stir both within, and outside of the scientific communities. To date, Large Hedron Collider tests have been run on numerous occasions. However, there have been some recorded "strange happenings," during some of these experiments that have some believing that the Large Hedron Collider is not just a massive particle experiment, but is also revealing parallel universes, and may involve experiments that go into time travel.

Disappearance of Flight A330-300

In 2009, during one such particle test, an airplane disappeared from the skies above Bolivia and reappeared thousands of miles away, above the skies of Spain. Some believe that the Collider created a "time warp," that sent the airplane thousands of miles off course and was accomplished when the Large Hedron Collider created a black hole.

According to one report out of CERN, "scientists had began a series of experiments during which they discovered their testing was "distorting our Earth’s magnetic field and had 'shot off' a 'time wave' towards the core of the planet”.

The report included that, “A Iberworld Airbus A330-300 flown by Air Comet which was ready to begin its descent into Santa Cruz, Bolivia, found itself ‘instantly and mysteriously’ over the skies of Tenerife, Spain, over 5,500 miles away."

All 170 passengers and crew of flight A7-301, were unharmed, and were transported from Spain, (via flight,) back to Bolivia.

Conspiracy Theories

CERN has been a huge subject among many doomsday believers, for good reason as odd videos containing what seem to be Satanic rituals within CERN, have surfaced on the internet in recent years.

Considering the similarities between the Large Hedron Collider and Stepehn Hawking's "Black Hole," theory, along with the, "Tipler Cylinder," theory, perhaps CERN has uncovered ways in which actual time travel may currently exist.

        Really, this is you logic? The possibility of time travel as an if, but,maybe proposition, but then you make the inexplicable leap - you don't explain how - that this if, but maybe event led to a real aircraft really disappearing. So, you go from 'maybe' ie. pure speculation, to factual reality. That's just making stuff up.

        Hi Jason B Truth,

        I never heard of "The Langoliers." It sounds like it was an interesting series. I Googled "Morgan Freeman and time travel," and I see that he did a small series as well. It's called, "Through The Wormhole." That series is on Youtube. This is such an interesting subject. I'll have to watch both series. :) Thank you for reading and commenting.

        Betty A F? Did you ever see the Stephen King mini-series "The Langoliers" that originally came out on television back in the 1990s? The plot indicated that travelling back through time and travelling back through history were two different things. I once saw an episode of "Through The Wormhole" on The Science Channel about this topic; and what was so interesting about it is that Morgan Freeman stated that we may someday be able to travel back through time, but we will likely never be able to use time travel to reconnect with loved ones who have passed away. When I heard him make that statement, it made me think of "The Langoliers" and what that mini-series implied about time travel.

        Hi someonewhoknows. Thank you for these interesting thoughts. I can see how our choices right now can influence our future. Every choice and every decision we've made in the past directly affects us right now. So what we do today, can alter what our individual futures will be like.

        Thank you for your thoughtful response.

        To clarify my statement concerning the future -

        We can of course live in the future second to second - minute to minute etc..... However there is no future for a physical body that may die at anytime going forward.

        In my mind's eye we can influence the future but we are not likely to go physically go into the future.However we most likely can go into the past which has already happened.

        Hi Kari,

        Time travel has always amazed me too! I came across the airplane story while researching information about CERN, and thought it was amazing as well. Your "slinky," theory of time is an interesting one, considering that within Tipler's theory, he stated that there were time-like curves within the theory of relativity, and an object orbiting around a infinite cylinder would definitely have some twists and turns.

        Thank you for your comment! You gave me some great ideas for research. Much appreciated!

        Time travel amazes me. I do believe it is possible since time is part of the dimension of space-time. I'm not sure if we humans will ever accomplish it as we see time as a straight line. I believe time is more like a slinky, curving and some times are close to each other than other times.

        This is a very interesting article. I never heard of flight A330-300. How strange. :)
