Before I explain why time travel is impossible, I first want to describe what this elusive phrase ‘time’ refers to. Well, if we look at a dictionary, then what we discover is that the phrase time has many conflicting definitions.
In Slaughterhouse five time journey might be seen as simply mere flashbacks from a delusional outdated man affected by trauma. In another sense time journey was used to indicate a relation to the Tralfamadorians philosophy of how each second has already been set to occur. Showing how future isn’t one thing that can be played with forcing you to simply accept what has happened; has occurred and to change into content material with it.
Time journey has many types of use with many various variations. Alternate worlds can be created though time journey since a change of an final result can create a number of possibilities. Parallel universes are a large number of universes which exists in the identical physical space however have a special dimensional structure from one another which regularly happen in comics. Parallel universes are also thought to exist via the analysis and experiments of quantum mechanics similar to Schordinger’s cat.
Hey Al, the only ‘wormholes’ are those that worms dig in the grime. There’s no reason to assume that a 4D unimaginable pseudo-object called ‘spacetime’ exists. It’s fully illogical and there’s no proof. You can not make ‘wormholes’ by one thing which doesn’t exist. So no, wormhole based time travel shouldn’t be potential as a result of there is no such thing as wormholes, time or spacetime. These are all nonsense invented by humans. Time is a useful idea nevertheless it’s fully synthetic and has nothing to do with reality.
What is the purpose of time travel in Slaughterhouse Five? It’s to not have the flexibility to change the previous and even the future. Almost every bit of literature with any form of time travel there’s intent to alter the previous or the present. The Tralfamadorians already established that every thing has already happened and is simply being played out until the end in a way. With that already mentioned in the beginning of the book the reader is aware of that one’s destiny can’t be changed or stopped since it has already occurred.
