Here is simply a work of my own mind, based off of what little i know of science & things of the sort. With a short(if very messy) scientific introduction, this is my opinion as to how and why THOUGHT MUST have mass, and how it can be used as a "time machine".(please forgive me if my scientific lexicon/knowledge is rather off key, im just a layman)

Travelling at the speed of light, the speed limit of the universe, is said to be impossible, & with good reason.

For one, Einstein's theories reveal that no matter how fast or how slow we move with relation to all around us, we are ALWAYS travelling, whether to or from, in relation to light at a constant speed. This is made possible by the flexing of space-time to compensate for our,  the observers', point of view... whether we are travelling TOWARDS light, or away from it, light always travels at a speed of approximately  299,792,458 m/s.

Michio Kaku, a leading astrophysicist in the world today, has speculated that it IS possible(thought maybe not with our current technology) to travel FORWARD in time using this effect of space-time compensation. According to his theory(from a special edition on space & time in National Geographic), if one were to travel near a very massive object(the object, to aid in increasing the bend of space-time, MUST have incredible mass, e.g. the sun) at NEAR light speed, it would cause the observer to experience time at a much slower rate than all around him. Couple this with travelling not just CLOSE to the massive object, but in ORBIT of it, constantly for years in earth time(with relation to an observer here on earth), by the time the traveller would finish his voyage, he would have travelled some time, YEARS, into the future, only having aged maybe a few weeks or months. But WHAT does all this have to do with THOUGHT and natural time travel? I'll try & explain in the following paragraphs.

We've all experienced, or so i think, those moments in life that are INCREDIBLY boring. For most this comes in the form of a job, of WORK. But WHY does time seem to stretch when we're at work??? If you were to apply the rules of physics to human thought, you can come up with something very simple, & in MY opinion, INCREDIBLY fascinating. Lets say your thought is LIGHT(or a photon), a nearly MASSLESS object, but MASSIVE(made of mass) none-the-less. And let's say your job is an object of little mass. According to the laws of physics, an object of little mass has a very little, if almost infintessimally small effect on the bending of space-time. SO, imagine you're travelling around this object of little mass, travelling at the speed of light, your thought, YOU, a photon. You'd experience time with relation to all around you, as far as light is concerned, at the same rate that all other things do, taking up as much time as you'd normally take. NOW ADD THAT to the fact that( if you're this kind of person) you find ur job to be incredibly boring. NATURALLY, you'd feel everything going fast for you, and yet time, the ONE thing you want to BEND, to give you a break & let you go home already, is going JUST as slow as it normally does, passing at a turtles pace.

NOW, im sure we've all(again, IN MY OPINION) experienced those moments in life where time passes by in a flash. Now why does THIS happen, i asked myself??? And AGAIN, using a little physics, i THINK i may have found an answer. ONCE AGAIN, you're mind, YOU, are a photon, travelling at near light speeds. Lets say you're with the person you love, a day out at ur favorite getaway, enjoying the life you both have & share. NOW, when you LOVE someone, its understood this person takes up a great place in ur heart, & so must ALSO take up such an amount of space in your mind. YOUR THOUGHTS about this person have accumulated over time, & it becomes, YOUR THOUGHTS BECOME, a massive object. Applying the laws of physics, lets say your actions with this person throughout the day are like travelling in orbit around this accumulation of thought-mass. To the observer, time itself(DURING the travel, that is WHILE you are doing watever it is you're doing with ur loved one) bends to compensate for ur orbiting speed with relation to the mass of thought. YOU would feel time slow during this process, when in REALITY, time AROUND YOU, is actually passing faster than usual. FINALLY when your travel has ended, & the day is done, you come out of orbit around this incredible amount of thought-mass, you're day almost gone & you left wondering at how you could have POSSIBLY spent so much time THAT QUICKLY...

In summation, Time Travel Thought asserts that TIME TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE, and happens VERY OFTEN in fact, when you are around or interacting with something you LOVE, something that takes up much space in your heart & mind as you accumulate thought-mass. THE MORE YOU LOVE, the greater your chances of experiencing your FIRST NATURAL TIME TRAVEL THOUGHT experiment.

SHOULD ANYONE READ THIS & FIND IT INTRIGUING, i'd love to hear opinions as to what you think, left if possible as comments through this article. SHOULD ANYONE TRY to prove my theory correct, or otherwise FALSIFY it, i'd love to read about it as well. Any and all experiences are welcome & will TRUELY be greatly appreciated, & once again THANK YOU FOR READING!!!
