“No civilization should ever announce its presence to the cosmos. Any other civilization that learns of its existence will perceive it as a threat to expand—as all civilizations do, eliminating their competitors until they encounter one with superior technology and are themselves eliminated. This grim cosmic outlook is called “dark-forest theory,” because it conceives of every civilization in the universe as a hunter hiding in a moonless woodland, listening for the first rustlings of a rival.”

– Ah, a wormhole with an Einstein-Rosen bridge, which is, theoretically,
a wormhole in space…
controlled by man.
So, according to Hawking, a wormhole may be able to provide a shortcut…
forjumping between two distant regions of space-time.
So in order to travel back in time, you have to have…
– A big spaceship or something that can travel faster than the speed of light?
– Theoretically.
– And be able to find one of these wormholes?
– The basic principles of time travel are there. You’ve got your vessel
and your portal, and your vessel could be just about anything,
most likely a spacecraft.
– Like a Delorean?
– Metal craft of any kind.
– You know, I love that movie, the way they shot it.
It’s so, um, like, futuristic, you know?
– Listen, um, don’t tell anybody that I gave you this.
