    I'm just reading a book on the theoreis of time travel and the like, but I'm in no position to really talk about it in depth to you. Maybe try one of the physics forums on here, I'm sure someone there may be able to help you

    I haven’t yet met any physicists that can explain general relativity, most of them admit that the theory is mind boggling.

    If you find any good explanations I would love to hear them.

    Sorry I can't help any more

    It involves tensors. :s:

    Beyond that dont ask.

    Think rubber sheet. Its complicated. If you want to understand it I suggest 2 books:

    1) Brief history of time - Stephen Hawking
    2) Black holes & time warps - Einsteins Outrageous legacy - by Kip Thorne.

    You're better off asking this in the Physics section or else the Cambridge subforum?

    Why the Cambridge forum? Can't people from other unis understand physics?

    Its about how space-time dimension is curved, resulting in energy being able to form from the collision of dense objects at the speed of light, or beyond.

    Cambridge! What about other unis :mad:

    besides full GR doesnt appear til yrs 3 or 4 because of the fact it has evil tensors in it. If youve met a matrix a tensor is a billion times worse. In fact a matrix is a 2 tensor but you can get 3, 4 or even 50 dimensional tensors :s:

    I looked in the physics degree forum and hardly anyone posted in that and thats why i posted it here.

    Yeh i understand it would take a long time to explain- thanks anyway guys.

    Im going to buy a few books during the summer and read up on it i think.
