I am currently doing research in an attempt to write a book. This thread constitutes part of that research, as I am exploring all avenues. Part of the plot includes time travel. (cliche' I know, but it fascinates me) So if you would be so kind, can anyone please try and help provide me with some realistic ideas of what it would take to actually assemble a working time machine, or portal, or just whatever it is you think might theoretically or otherwise work. As much detail as possible would be greatly appreciated. This is my first attempt at writing a book, and as you can probably see I'm not much of a writer. But everyone I've talked to about my idea seems to think it could be a compelling story if done properly. The story has been in my head for over 10 years and it's not going anywhere until I get it out of my system. I have to at least try. Obviously I couldn't use your words verbatim in the manuscript as that would be plagiarism, but if by some miracle it were to get published, each and every person who provided even the most minute amount of help will be properly credited in the book. If this forum is not the proper place for this, then I sincerely apologize. This process is going to be a long journey. I hope it continues to be as fun as it has the past couple months since I decided to do it. Thanks in advance to any and all that might decide to help. Sincerely, Dan.
