    The fascinating thing about time travel , once a time period is, it is always alive somewhere ... Imagine going back 1,000 years, that means somewhere , on some level, that day still exists, and a week from now it will still exist , therefore what is, always is ... The eternal now ...checking out the video now...

    Sci-Fi author Philip K. Dick believed the Roman Empire never fell, that something caused time (or that particular timeline) to stop at 70 AD.

    Thumbs up on the movie! I cheated by watching the primer to PRIMER first. And all those timelines ... reminded me of the different realities that played out in Vanilla Sky.

    I just watched the movie and will watch it again tomorrow.

    Good idea cheating Lady M

    Perhaps we cold build a gravity distortion and time displacement machine? There seems to be a patent for one...Anyone think it works or it's purpose having a patent?

    US Patent 20060073976 A1

    "ABSTRACT

    A method for employing sinusoidal oscillations of electrical bombardment on the surface of one Kerr type singularity in close proximity to a second Kerr type singularity in such a method to take advantage of the Lense-Thirring effect, to simulate the effect of two point masses on nearly radial orbits in a 2+1 dimensional anti-de Sitter space resulting in creation of circular timelike geodesics conforming to the van Stockum under the Van Den Broeck modification of the Alcubierre geometry (Van Den Broeck 1999) permitting topology change from one spacelike boundary to the other in accordance with Geroch's theorem (Geroch 1967) which results in a method for the formation of G{umlaut over ( )}odel-type geodesically complete spacetime envelopes complete with closed timelike curves.

    Wonderful film. Great direction and immensely engaging.:-)

    Took the advice and had watched the Illustrative Primer primer tomorrow, which took me back to deciding, I will enjoy it the first time when I have time. Probably do that when I awake this morning:-)

    Very simple visual story line yet the viewers perspective conflated by various time lines. We need challenging stories like this throughout our cinematic experiences.

    Thanks for the "heads up" on this movie.

    Predestination (2014) is an amazing time travel movie. I just watched it and I have to say I liked it much more than Primer. Though Primer was good and probably more realistic as far as time travel could be anyway.
