# 13 Year Old Boy Has Time Machine Plan That Works

Posted on CNN’s iReport:

One 13 year old boy , named Gentill Abdulla, has said that he has a time machine plan that is going to work. I have personally met him and he is an extremely bright boy. Gentill says that his ingenious plans can allow time travel to be possible. He told me “I have done a lot of research on the areas of black holes, time travel, wormholes, magnetism, light, and most importantly gravity. I have devised an experiment that if done correctly could allow time travel. Here is the theory. If you had magnets in front of each other and had one beam of blue light that had been traveling for thousands of years and put that in the middle of these two magnets then turned on lasers on each magnet , and the side they are pointing makes the magnets face each other, and when the magnets are heated have eight smaller magnets on each magnet and make those magnets so that they would repel the big magnet. Then move all these magnets toward the plastic magnet so it will compress it on all sides so it will become smaller than it’s Schwarzschild radius. After this is done the magnets both should become black holes. Since they are facing each other their gravities will act and join these black holes together. There will still be a singularity but it will be magnetic. Now you make a device, that I have also made, that will split the singularity into a ring.This device that will make a hole in the singularity. Since the string is no longer there the magnets will expand enough to make the singularity into ta ring. You will know if it works because you will be able to see the other side of the hole from the entrance. Since the beam of light is old and the light beam is what is creating the effect you will be able to go back to when that beam of light was first made. So through this it will make a traversable wormhole. The negative energy really won’t be negative energy because since the smaller magnets are repelling the singularity it will push it outward in the opposite way or just rotate the 2 magnets from the begining so you don’t have that problem…

WOW… With iron-clad scientific reasoning like that, this thing HAS to work!

2. iphlogiston | Jan 16, 2010 at 10:52 pm |

Make it so, Number One. I've got a Mormon church to stop from happening…

3. Sounds good. “Honey, check the blue light beam dispenser, for a 1992.”

4. santosfabian | Jan 17, 2010 at 1:21 am |

man, no way. cant. can it?

5. tonyviner | Jan 17, 2010 at 1:42 am |

I doubt this will work, and I am not even a scientist or anything.

6. beiterbattery | Jan 17, 2010 at 5:19 am |

7. Quick! Somebody kill this kid before he grows up and becomes the CEO of Cyberdyne.

8. Great Scott! Now he can go get get a Gray's Sports Almanac for 1950-2000 and bet on all the winning games for 2010… Drat, too late!

9. biologist | Jan 17, 2010 at 5:03 pm |

This sounds absolutely ridiculous. Why oh why would it travel back to when the first blue light originated? If it possibly could, it would mean that the light has a sort of “memory”, and is not merely one type of energy flying with a direction and intensity.

10. This is preposterous. This is just the imagination of a 13 year old.Ok,critical flaw here is the singularity part,not that it wasn't already wrong before this point,but a singularity is defined as x:0,y:0,z:0 dimensions,and thus cannot be molded into a ring,its geometry isn't even Euclidean at that point.
Time travel backward is impossible.Time travel forward is unfortunately necessary for any interstellar travel,as relativistic effects take over.

Keziah Mason will appear to you in a dream and set you straight (or hyperbolic) or whichever way opens your mind to the ancient nuclear chaos.

11. your an idiot | Jan 18, 2010 at 1:16 am |

why would you even print this? look even if he wasnt completely flawed in his logic. (which he is) you a human being of carbon base can not traverse time in the reverse. id explain the whole einstien theory to you but im already giving this to much credit by posting at all. this site sucks

• no, YOUR an idiot. | Jan 18, 2010 at 11:06 am |

“id explain the whole einstien theory to you but im already giving this to much credit by posting at all. this site sucks”

No you wouldn't. I calling you out, you couldn't explain crap.

• roywlogan | Jan 19, 2010 at 3:35 am |

Einstien Theory doesn't apply with black holes. Einstien admitted that fact. Not that I'm giving any credit to a theory that squishing magnets in an oven whilst passing a beam of old light & lasers will have any affect on the fabric of space time though.

• jeffpayne | Jan 18, 2010 at 11:07 am |

The irony of someone who misspells “you're” calling someone else an “idiot,” is rich indeed.

• hahahahahaha good one.

12. Yeah but everyone I have ever known can time travel. In fact I must travel into The Future just to finish writing this!

• Tergiversator_Maximus | Jan 18, 2010 at 11:48 pm |

Way to be *that* guy.

Kudos if you're a middle school science teacher, though. I'll bet there are plenty of people who find that clever in that case.

13. Uh…stupid kid.

Once a black whole is created, the magnets will collapse. That's one of a number of issues with this kid's ideas…

14. To everyone freaking out about this; check the name of the site that this is posted on. If you don't know what disinformation means then I suggest you look it up.

• Check And Mate.

• actually if you took the time to look at the “about” section on this website, it says “disinformation was designed to be the search service of choice for individuals looking for information on current affairs, politics, strange science and “hidden information” that seldom slips through the cracks of corporate-owned media.” nothing about it being made up.

• If you knew even high school level physics, you would know that this article and most like it on this website are complete bunk.

15. Bob Garfunkle | Jan 18, 2010 at 12:14 pm |

Everyone in this thread has been trolled.

And you are all incredibly insecure as well.

16. This is all wrong. You need a flux capacitor and a Delorian.

• lol.. what is a gigawatt

• Shade ginther | Oct 20, 2010 at 12:25 pm |

stop trying to act smart if asked in real life without using the internet to find out what they are you have no idea im right aint I!

• Shade ginther | Oct 20, 2010 at 12:29 pm |

• Bu bu buhh bu bubububu bu

• Max_lacosse | Jul 20, 2011 at 5:21 pm |

I’ll just take the DeLorian

17. this is retarded.

18. Regardless if his theory is right or wrong, it is still pretty amazing that a 13 year old could come up with a theory this complex. I bet when most of you critics were 13 the greatest thing you ever discovered was masturbation…

• When I was his age I didn't spend all my day watching “documentaries” on CNN, sci-fi movies, or videogames. I actually read, played outside and met other kids.

• That's why by time he's your age he'll be paid better than you and will accomplish more than you.

• By the time he gets it working, he go back in time and tell himself what masturbating is at the age of 12.

• well if he is right then he can just travel back in time and do all that stuff in the future duh

• Even if this time travel lark works, he'll still think the greatest thing he ever discovered was masturbation and he'll be right.

19. LOUD NOISES!

20. Ronald Reagan.. he's an actor!!! Who's the vice president, Jerry Lewis?!?

21. holy fucking shit what a wall of text… sounds like a 13 year old wrote this^^

22. I already have a time machine. It's round, gold plated, and fits in my pocket. The only drawbacks are that it only takes you forward in time, and it operates very slowly so you go forward one second for every second of real time. Of course, sometimes I forget to wind it, and then it goes even slower.

23. Whether or not this theory is plausible, the fact is that a 13 year old imagined it is fantastic because all science and technology was once someone's crazy imagination. Good Job!

24. this kid watched too much lord of the rings

25. Jose Carril | Jan 18, 2010 at 3:51 pm |

You need the Delorean or any other supercar with gullwing doors for it to work and 3D glasses because you may end up in the planet Pandora

26. fredomrocr | Jan 18, 2010 at 3:55 pm |

you guys who giving this idea shit are just douches,the fact that the kid is only 13 and has already done more than you ever will is the only reason you dislike the idea.

27. alexdoall | Jan 18, 2010 at 4:02 pm |

What. The. Fuck. Is he talking about?

28. I LOVE LAMP

29. 21 jiggawatts!

30. Actually you can also just hold up a round magnet and shoot a green laser through it. Whoever or whatever is standing on the other side will appear to be vaporized, but will actually be transported into the future. The number of years depends on the strength of the laser and of the magnet, and you can go into the past by switching the polarity of the magnet. Simple. I'm a genius too, do I get a trophy?

• ryanblessed | Jan 20, 2010 at 2:28 am |

I tried this, and all that happened was that a burnt a small hole in my tie. Is this a relativistic or quantum effect?

31. I'm traveling forward in time as we speak!!

32. Prometheus2508 | Jan 18, 2010 at 5:25 pm |

Light doesn't “age.” As you approach relativistic speeds, the time experienced by the traveling object slows, approaching zero as you reach c. There is no such thing as “old” light. It's age would only be relative to the duration it spent traveling through a medium.

• omg all u guys are idiots this is a 13 year old kid remember?? he still has over 60 years left in his life to learn more and come up with other theories im sure even einstein got it wrong a few times and the fact that u are all gettin fairly serios and sound annoyed at him why not just go outside take a few deep breaths and tink of wat theories you came up with as a 13 year old???

33. eaglefeather27 | Jan 18, 2010 at 6:48 pm |

its a scary thought,time travel i mean..what if you cant get back and would you influence certain decisions to change the course of history,the posibilities are crazy when you think about it and if you changed your own past,what would happen to you?..makes you think

• Dr. Emmett Brown | Jan 18, 2010 at 11:02 pm |

Well, think about it. If anyone at any point in the present or future will go back in time and change history, from our point of view nothing will be out of the ordinary because to us, things will be progressing as normal.

34. This article should focus less on the kid's plan, and more on his ingenuity. I have no idea whether or not his idea makes sense, but I'm still incredibly impressed he thought of it.

35. this kid is a fag.his idea wont work. im 14 and i had better ideas.

• Oh? What's your supposed better idea? Riding your bike off your roof in an attempt to impress the older kids?

36. That makes absolutely no sense not to mention its a huge run on sentence…

37. As soon as he gets this thing working he should go back in time and fix the typos in this article…

“Since the string is no longer there the magnets will expand enough to make the singularity into ta ring.”

38. GreeneThumb | Jan 18, 2010 at 10:26 pm |

I've got a time machine too. It's glass insulated with water and biomass fuel, and an ignition. It works every time, been using it since I was 16. Keep up with the times people!

39. anarchist78 | Jan 18, 2010 at 10:49 pm |

okay so you get some magnets a blue light and a couple of those laser pointers and see if it works … if you dont try it how can you criticize first.

40. anarchist78 | Jan 18, 2010 at 10:50 pm |

And hey if it does work now this poor kid can go back in time and reclaim his lost childhood

41. Agreed, It is wrong, you need a flux capacitor. Even I know that…

42. Band of Morons | Jan 19, 2010 at 12:27 am |

This is possibly the single stupidest things I've read on the Internet… Don't you just wish you had a time machine so you could go back to before you posted this garbage to save face? Oh wait…

43. I love how many people are jumping to say that even if he's wrong, it's amazing that he's only 13 and knows this much. Who says he's only 13? A CNN iReport? Those are written BY anybody, without verification. The article describes him, his theory, and gives an e-mail address to contact him, and he comments back. While it's not impossible that a 13-year-old could know this much, we can't take at face value that he IS one, or that he even exists. Show me photos, a video interview conducted by a respected journalist asking him difficult, unrehearsed questions that he answers, and you've got me. Until then I don't even have a reason to buy the fact that he's wrong but smart.

44. frankthecylon | Jan 19, 2010 at 12:37 am |

Ya I saw Stargate there too chief.

45. bongmaster420 | Jan 19, 2010 at 1:01 am |

It's obvious that this kid did not write this at age 13, he obviously created it in the future and then went back in time and gave it to his younger self. Silly rabbit trix are for kids.

46. your future | Jan 19, 2010 at 1:29 am |

The fact that the youth are providing ideas still, whether they work or not, proves hope still exists in the world. if this works (after some tweaks). great! if it doesnt, no harm. we'll just know one more thing that doesnt work and progress would continue via negativa. the socratic method still exists for a reason.

47. I know where he can buy magnets http://slimspickin.blogspot.com
I don't quite understand his theory. If it works, why doesn't he use it to go back in time and bet on every superbowl since 1970.

48. Comments are great on this post!

49. you expect a magnet to remain a magnet when compressing it to its scwarzchild radius???
Don't be silly you are too easily impressed by words you don't understand

50. What's blue light? Light changes color if it goes through something blue???

51. he forgot the crystals…

52. Jamin Duh | Jan 19, 2010 at 4:34 am |

i like how everyone is choosing not to realize that this isnt actually time travel but instantaneous space travel, he said it him self that you would be brought to the point of “when” (where) the light originated but to have a passing light that old you would need to place it quite far away, and you would be brought to that place, assuming that with that travel you reached the origin of the light thinking you just went back in time, but actually what you did was travel through the light stream thus inventing “light speed”, not time travel, this is still an amazing discovery but its not time travel

53. wikipediageneration | Jan 19, 2010 at 4:51 am |

He isn't actually sitting there doing advanced math, he just read wikis and watched some docus. The idea that you could get something even close enough to a singularity to cut it is ridiculous. He wants to obtain blue light that's been traveling for thousands of years? Honestly this isn't intelligent, fair play for being interested but this is all garbage when it's put together. IF you created a black hole near freaking anything it would pretty much wipe out the whole planet, you can't escape the fact a black hole cannot be controlled by any known means.

54. Paul Gregg | Jan 19, 2010 at 5:12 am |

Oh, I get it.

55. So many people butthurt by an obscure plan of a 13-year old. Me likey!

56. I wait in anticipation of more news on this, in hopes that someone has finally come up with a theory that actually does work once put to the test. My only other comment at this time is that this has to be one of the most poorly written articles I have ever seen. I realize that the article was written by someone that is not a true reporter but that should be no excuse. What I noticed most was the lack of punctuation, the lack of proper grammar, and the overuse of many words such as “and” to create more than one run-on sentence. I don't necessarily think that it's too much to ask that if there's to be a report on something as serious as a scientific theory of time travel that the person in charge of writing the article be educated in at least a basic level of journalism.

57. It sounds as if his theory did work the beginning of this “Blue light” would have to be at the start of when you made the time travel device therefore making it kind of pointless cause you'd go back to when you made it… just how it was written in the context i suppose..

58. Okay. Here is how we test this. I'll write somthing about a recent world event if he can go back in time he can change the course of events and it won't happen. As it won't have happened in the new future I will have to write about something else and… He… No, I…. Wait… Damn it!

59. That was very interesting, he clearly has an important future ahead of him.

I can see that many people are complete morons by the quantity and quality of these: “comments”. Its like a gathering of all the stupid people I went to school with. Most of you are threatened by this kid. Why?
He's smarter than you. Even if his theories are wrong, this 13 yr old kids' mind is open wide compared to the pinprick size hole most of you filter your thoughts through.
More power to this KID!!

• As others have said, whether he's right or not is largely irrelevant.

The fact that he understands even the basics of the quantum world is impressive. Who knows what he (and others like him) might acheive in 10, 20 or even 30 years time.

61. If you ever meet yourself sometime in the future, then you've successfully traveled back in time.

62. photons exist in zero-time (they're already going the speed of light, so no time can pass), so the 'thousand year old light' stuff seems silly. moreover, as I understand this, to get this to work you'd have to shoot a laser from thousands of light years away, thousands of years ago.. then you'd need to intercept the beam across millenia of stellar drift, at which point you could only travel back in space/time to the point from which the laser had been fired, which seems both impractical and roundabout. I'm not even gonna talk about the 'device that makes a hole in a singularity', you can't operate mathematically on a mass below it's schwarzchild radius.

63. UprightCitizen | Jan 19, 2010 at 10:18 pm |

I also have a time machine. It's in my bedroom closet. I just need you to strip down and slip on these leather hot pants and this gimp mask, you know, for streamlining, and we'll be off in a jiffy to visit the time of Jesus!!

I am so bloody tired of haters. Given our advance in technological achievements over the last 100 years alone, it is highly probable that time travel *will* be possible at some point in our race's future…and people without a clue in their heads might want to do some reading on synergistic singularities in tech. research ad spiral dynamics before they dismiss me as a crackpot.
I've no idea if this kid is right or not, but it will have to start somewhere.
Of course, CERN just built that multi-billion dollar accelerator because they were bored…nothing to be learned there….nothing to see there….move along…

67. there is no future in time travel

68. Accepting an idea as a seed, a source for inspiration and pushing that forward, undeveloped and full of unrealized potential is like sacrificing your persona for the greater good of progress for all.

People find it easier to show initiative only when something is presented to them, handed as a bashing poll, helpless to defend itself.

Through this means of forced passive action, life in humanity is always a struggle. Keeping things moving with passion and momentum from a single seed and mind is how society consumes its fruit, letting it rot from tribal participation.

Only the true outcasts make statements of progress. Criticism is the decay that recycles the struggle for the fittest to present their imaginations.

Knowing this does nothing. 'Watch and follow' is all you are good at.

69. Meh, maybe he's a relatively smart kid (though he has a lot of holes in his inelegance), but the poor bastard will never have a girl friend, will never have kids, will most likely work at some university and spend his entire life in a lab with no sunshine, and if he continues to study useless areas such as time travel rather then contributing something helpful to society….he pretty much will end up wasting his life away. *Sigh* What a waist of breathing space…

70. Let's quit with the “you guys are morons, this 13 year old kid is smarter then you”.

Some of these comments are pointing out where the kids plan is falling through. Sounds to me they are seeing something that this little boy isn't seeing.

And let's not pretend this is amazing stuff this boy is doing. All of this sounds like he's spent a couple hours on Wikipedia, and come up with some random answer for time travel. Look up time travel and you would find many theories almost identical to this one. Looks like there is a bit of copying and pasting going on here.

71. Philip Charles Whitehead | Feb 10, 2010 at 11:36 am |

This works, except the energy require to displace mass from one point to another will alter the charge of electrons, protons and ions, due to the higher temperatures produced within the vacuum of the system….. Shielding (reversal of charge) is required within the system prior to the transfer of mass. Not bad young man..

72. itwork4me | Mar 8, 2010 at 8:52 pm |

My god this got my brain spinning. First of all I heard some time travelling tale on Coast to Coast regarding that if you were going to do this you would require a beacon of light be set up at various points in time. OK…No sweat. Supposedly this guy is looking to use the first blue light….So where are you going to get that huh? Well, quite frankly I read about cosmic background radiation which you can read about here

essentially static on your television is this, and therefore is being represented to you in beams of light…i think i see some blue in the static…so perhaps here is your beacon to the beginning of time.

The only problem is that since this is in the air, and considered a glow, i would imagine the problem isn't time travel but getting to a particular point in the universe. Time is man-made so it's pretty relevant to just us here on earth. If someone were to say they saw an unidentified craft disappear in a blue light, I doubt the inhabitants in the ship would consider it time travel. I am interested in time travel and would be interested in going back to 10/8/2006, my 33rd birthday and the day my girlfriend died in a horrible car crash at 7:58 in her brand new Toyota Corolla. Ironically my name has seven letters in the first name, five in the middle, eight in the last name. I think it is a sign so that when I time travel I know already where I need to go to fix things…perhaps for everyone.

80. Here’s a question for you time travel theorists. So far no one has been able to answer.
Is time reversal possible.
Time travel takes the idea that you would travel either backwards or forwards in time, but ‘as you are’ now. Is it possible to reverse time so that you reverse to a point when you are actually younger again, so as to live your life all over again ??

Can I Use this to go back in time and Stop the Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash? then theoretically i would have never gone back in time, because i would have had no reason to. The loophole would close itself, this post would never exist. I’ve been trying to think of a way that i could save the band, yet still keep everything the same. It would involve me going to the past, like twice AND the future once. I leave for 1977, hijack the band, save them. Then i go back a week with the band, creating 2 of them. Put the 1st ones on the plane, wipe their memories. Drop band # 2 in the future, 2 days after i had left. Thus not altering the past, and we get Lynyrd Skynyrd back! Then id time travel a bit, and see various points in history
