Is Time Travel Possible? | Sadhguru

Questioner: Namaskaram Sadhguru Sadhguru: Who is speaking? Questioner: If time is relative can we time-travel? Sadhguru: (Laughs) So you want to go into the past or the future. Is n’t this the biggest problem in the world? people are time-travelling within themselves? They are trying to live what happened ten days ago, or they’re trying to live what may happen day after tomorrow, hmm? Time-travel is the biggest problem, don’t seek it, it’s already a great problem. Now that’s not what you are asking you want to know what happened in the past or you want to know what’ll happen tomorrow. When he said, “Mere bare me kuch bolo
(Please say something about me),” whatever (Laughter) what he is telling me is why don’t you time-travel for me and tell me what’ll happen tomorrow, okay? Yes? That’s all he is asking. So I have to wear my astrological clothes
(Laughter). see if you transcend your physical nature there is no such thing as time. There is In India in this culture we have a word called trikala gnani, that means one who knows past, present and future. This does not mean he is time-travelling, that is a what these Hollywood movies which misunderstand everything logically and literally why I am saying this is they are always trying to understand
everything factually, literally. When we said there is a trikala gnani, they said, “Oh, there is somebody who goes into past, present and future.” See this moment is eternity, I want you to know, it’s question of are you living in the surface or have you do you have a profound experience of
what’s now? What you think is past, what you think is future or what you think is now
is all one happening, they are not three different happenings. They are not three different dimensions or three different geographical spaces that you can go into and come back. When you use the world travel it suggests movement, isn’t it? I travel from point A to point B, I can’t travel from point A to point A, point A to point A, point A to point A – I cannot travel unless I’m making rounds. So right now when you say past, present and future you are talking about triple A, you understand? It’s A, A, A, it’s not A, B, C. When we say time, in the yogic perception, which ultimately modern physics will come to someday hopefully is, time is the basic aspect of creation because of time there is gravity, because of gravity everything else. Right now the problem with modern physics is they have reasonably understood the other forces, they are unable to understand what’s gravity. Gravity is a consequence of time, it’s not the other way round. Because there is time there is gravity. The word time itself may not conjure that image in your mind. The Sanskrit word is correct, it’s kala. Kala means two things time and emptiness. Kali – not talking about the Devi, Kali means what? Empty. Kala means darkness. Kala means time and it also means emptiness. If you try to speak with
little more personified context we will call this Shiva. So we are talking about
time and emptiness, time and nothingness
as the same thing. Because there is time there is creation, because what we call as creation exists there is gravity because to maintain the integrity of a little bit of physicality
in this vast kala – you need some force
to hold it together. So gravity is only when
time bends in a certain way. Time which is nothingness, time which is emptiness takes a curve. When it takes a curve physical dimension begins. If it doesn’t take a curve physical does not exist. So when we say spiritual process you’re trying to get out of the curve because whatever curves ultimately will go in circles, isn’t it? So because you experience time as a consequence of the curve that it took you’re understanding time
as the spin of the planet, as the rotation of the moon and the sun
and whatever else. But when we refer to kala, we are talking about time in a
more fundamental way that it is emptiness. It is nothingness, it is clear space is time. We are always the modern concept is
talking about time and space as two different things. We are talking about time and space as one thing, the existential is gravity. The non-existential presence that is there is kala or kali or emptiness or time or whatever you want to call it or darkness – all these things symbolize the same thing. So if somebody travels in time he’s lost his mind. Really, I know books are written about it. Don’t ever believe please… I want you to understand, you throw up a new concept let’s say a scientific community throws up
a new concept or philosophically some new concept comes. Instantly there will be
hundred authors in America, first eighty will come from America, next ten will come from India
maybe these days. They will write books about how they experience this concept which may not even exist. Powerful books will be written and one generation will grow up on that
and it will die. Next generation has not even heard about what… the books that were popular in
seventies and eighties – this generation has not even heard
about those things which shaped those people’s
psyche completely. So this time travel business, this near death (Laughs) stuff
that’s going on, these are popular subjects right now. I would advise you write a book, you will sell well, make money,
it’s all right. If it’s your survival, write something but if you… it’s your seeking don’t bullshit yourself into something and you’ll get lost. Don’t do time travel because you cannot do time travel. Time as you know it only exists because of your physical nature. If you really want to know
the profoundness of time, if you want to know the kala which holds everything together, which holds everything in its lap, you must distance yourself
from your physical nature. Then you know kala not as three but three As superimposed on each other not A, B, C. So then you will not try to travel. You will dimensionally dimensional shifts within yourself, not psychological understanding of time. What happened yesterday is one time, what’s happening now is another time, what may happen tomorrow is another time not in that context. They are not three separate things. Actually what happened yesterday if you sit here and imagine all that it’ll all happen now, isn’t it? Yes? What may happen tomorrow if you sit here and if you have powerful enough imagination, it’ll happen right now. This is why people are suffering something that happened ten years ago and something that may happen
day after tomorrow, yes? They are enjoying and suffering things
which don’t exist. So if you try to do time travel you will lose your mind and think you are experiencing something. Psychological drama that you create in the form of thought and emotion is not life, it is a badly directed movie (Laughter).

  1. I think Isha foundation is also now providing some KALA (time) related sadhana for advanced seekers. Great Video .

  2. This is the first time is hear Sadhguru talk about Scientific principles though I always knew that he knew things πŸ™‚

  3. every statement he makes has a common Moto I.e.., having a perfect answer to the question who you are(neither the body nor the mind/thought)

  4. wow, from 3:50 he actually sounds kinda like scarlet johansson from the movie "Lucy"when she transcends all her senses

  5. Spacetime bends to create gravity. I don't think modern science has separated space-time as two different things altogether. Also people are already time travelling to future. You just have to travel at high speeds. For them it will be time travel!

  6. either time travel is not possible, or i'm never going to be able to travel it b/c if any future version of me or even incarnation of me DID achieve such things? i'd have already come back & helped my past self but that hasn't happened, so either it's not real or i'll never achieve such great potential.

  7. Time Travel is very dangerous because the Earth is spinning, and the Continents are moving. if we leave to travel trough time on land in a safe place, either to go into the future or the past we could end up in the ocean or inside a mountain or in another country that could be hostile to us when we reappear. I have always wondered when I heard stories of Sailors on ships out at sea seeing strange craft coming and going out of the ocean, if these were time travelers that miscalculated their arrival place.
