impossible to know another person's reality. Alva Noë ponders this in
relation to debates in today's world. ...

Traversable acausal retrograde domains in spacetime

Benjamin K Tippett1 and David Tsang2

Published 31 March 2017 • © 2017 IOP Publishing Ltd
Classical and Quantum Gravity, Volume 34, Number 9


In this paper we present geometry which has been designed to fit a layperson's description of a 'time machine'. It is a box which allows those within it to travel backwards and forwards through time and space, as interpreted by an external observer. Timelike observers travel within the interior of a 'bubble' of geometry which moves along a circular, acausal trajectory through spacetime. If certain timelike observers inside the bubble maintain a persistent acceleration, their worldlines will close.

Our analysis includes a description of the causal structure of our spacetime, as well as a discussion of its physicality. The inclusion of such a bubble in a spacetime will render the background spacetime non-orientable, generating additional consistency constraints for formulations of the initial value problem. The spacetime geometry is geodesically incomplete, contains naked singularities, and requires exotic matter.
