In this text, the author strives to answer the most challenging questions scientists and philosophers ask. What is time? Is time travel possible? Is time real? Does it flow in one direction only? Does it have a beginning or an end? What is eternity? For centuries, these questions have intrigued mystics, philosophers and scientists. Today many physicists consider time one of the strangest properties of our universe. This book seeks to allow readers to travel through time and space without expert knowledge of physics - helping them understand such seemingly arcane concepts as space-time diagrams, light cones, time machines, cosmic moment lines, transcendent infinite speeds, Lorentz transformations, causal linkages, superliminal and ultraliminal motions, Minkowskian space-times, G model universes, closed timelike curves and Tipler cylinders.
