Is it really possible to travel than the speed of light? According to Shelly Barclay, “A person cannot travel faster than the speed of light. We cannot make an infinite cylinder and such things as wormholes and cosmic strings probably do not exist (2011).” Barclay also stated, “Even if they did, they would still be uncontrollable methods of time travel. How can you tell a cosmic string of energy where to take you (2011)?” Certainly we cannot travel through time forward or backwards, in a car or phone booth, a mass of swirling structure or even fall into a pond. We can time travel in a different way,
