Are wormholes real or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? And if they are real how do they work and where can we find them?

What are the time travel paradoxes? Can’t you only travel into the future by going through wormholes? They don’t generate paradoxes.

+gilgamesh310 That's just a plot device in movies, physical reality doesn't "know" what happens in a subjective or more subtle sense, it only understands a series of physical events.

Well if they do, it could still happen like in Interstellar, where you can travel back, but can’t change anything. So there won’t be paradoxes. Whatever someone goes back to do, has already been done.
Artur Renato B.B

They do. Wormholes inherently imply backwards time travel, you can better visualize this by seeing the metric of bent spacetime around a wormhole.

So what your saying is: exotic matter is unstable and against physics so it would most likely kill humans?
Artur Renato B.B
Artur Renato B.B 2 дні тому
If by "first" you mean on the idea of a cyclical universe constantly resetting itself, we don't know. Maybe yes, maybe no. Exotic matter's properties are very unstable, it's mere existence is a issue because ot contradicts physics, so it would be most likely harmful.

That's a newtonian framework, a simple vision of gravity. Negative mass has s negative energy density, creating a positive curvature on spacetime, something that can be only properly described in Einstein's picture.

I have a thought, when we discovered the electron we figured it was useless like what can we do with this tiny particle that we have no idea how to harness it. Now we can manipulate it with ease. Maybe someday we can figure out how to control gravity using the Higgs boson right? If we can control gravity it should be easy to prop open wormholes.

So basically Einstein's theories are nonsense?
Artur Renato B.B
Artur Renato B.B 6 днів тому
No, they are correct. In fact, General Relativity is the very thing that made the first descriptions of wormholes possible. It is currently the best theory for gravity. Special Relativity is undeniably true so it isn't a failure either. What Einstein's theory fails at, is making a quantum description of nature together with GR.

Se a gente consequisse criar um buraco de minhoca com propriedades magneticas poderiamos usar isso para mantelos abertos, e como nao sabemos ezatamente doque sao compostos pode ser que seja possivel ou nao
Artur Renato B.B
Artur Renato B.B 6 днів тому
Não. O electromagnetismo consegue criar campos gravitacionais, contudo, não de curvatura positiva. Os buracos de minhoca são como uma, de forma simples, "montanha", enquanto a gravidade comum tem densidade de energia positiva, que cria uma curvatura negativa, ou seja, um vale. Logo essa montanha precisa de energia negativa pra se manter aberta, o que não temos.
