Iranian scientist has invented a time travel machine

Iranian scientist has invented a time travel machine According to Iran's Fars state news, a Tehran scientist has registered his invention, "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine."
The device can predict up to eight years into the future "in a print out after taking readings from the touch of a user," says Ali Razeghi, the inventor and managing director of Iran's Centre for Strategic Inventions.

Complex algorithms can predict so far out with "98 percent accuracy." Razeghi notes he has been working on the project for the last 10 years and has 179 registered inventions.

"My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next 5-8 years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you," claims the scientist.

"Naturally a government that can see five years into the future would be able to prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it," he added. "As such we expect to market this invention among states as well as individuals once we reach a mass production stage."

Of course, Razeghi took a parting shot at the U.S. and China: "The Americans are trying to make this invention by spending millions of dollars on it where I have already achieved it by a fraction of the cost. The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight."

even if the article is true which i dont believe the future has endless possibilities so cant be predicted.
something as simple as stopping & tying your shoes would throw the future out by a few seconds and everything in it would change.the other thing which would happen if people believed it to be true and used it is they would try and change the future they would make different choices to not get to a bad point.

honestly think the article is a bad joke or the scientist is a quack who honestly believes he has done the impossible and is good at convincing simple minded people he has.

Just add him to the enormous pile of Quacks exactly like him in Iran. Unfortunately for the people of Iran, almost all of them are running the country...

Hey potential customers out there, get a quote from him and I will do the same thing for half price 50% off, great deal right ? ! Seriously there is something wrong with this world if this dude ends up making millions off of this...

That's a given, there's obviously more then just this wrong with the world. Mindless idiots become famous without talent, 16 year old girls become rich for getting knocked up, people make millions for getting drunk and f**king anything they can. The thing is they're not completely to blame, a majority of the population finds this entertaining and they continue to watch

The real money will be made when they release The Butterfly Effect DLC.


When laws allow unlimited ownership of ideas, it is to a society as iron fusion is to the core of a star.

When verified realities lead us to anger, we must learn to reevaluate our beliefs.

This sounds much like the Scientology tester for seeing gods or being good or bad it can see if you have a good or bad future too!!!

Maybe they didn't patent it? but I'm sure they have.

Time machine?
Did anyone check the translation?

This sounds more like a health predicting machine to me.
The Gov part of it sounds like the sort of national public health assessment every Gov tries to do to predict future costs.

Why wait for mass production when you could see what the lottery numbers were for each week, so why the need to make any?

I made a time machine once. I traveled one hour into the future but then the flux capacitor broke. I'm now stuck here in your timeline and I can't get back.

My initial thoughts are health information for the user, but seeing as health/medical info can be obtained from any physician, I don't really see the use for his invention. This is one of those times where we wait and see, it seems.

Seeing the future would not be impossible. The shear processing power needed to see the possible outcomes of every atom is nearing the realm of possibility. However causality and chaos theory would render any device useless as each user would collapse the current reality and replace it with a newly generated one according to the new readings of the device.

What this device likely does is registers events according to some algorithm that scours the internet for trending topics. So really no more than a specialized news reader really.

people have seen into the future but usually its a distorted image in a dream.
you may or may not think im insane for saying this.people have dreams and some of the things they see,smell,hear,touch,taste in the dreams happen in the future.but we have a population of billions of people and most people have dreams and only a small percentage of things in dreams happens in the future.

On the another hand, yes: future, pass or instant travel can be possible as a distorted dream image, but only -8% of the people have "the gift" (Genetic)

Hey guys, precognition is a possibility. Nostradamus had it and was quite accurate in many of his predictions. However, precognition is a human quality that can be developed by anyone who knows how, and is willing to, undergo the disciplines involved in order to attain it (a very, very difficult job!), others are born with it. If that Iranian is a Muslim, which is likely, then he believes in a rational 'soul', which is a human quality. I don't think his computer has one, and he knows it! So. what does that make him? :)

Nostradamus failed to notice that the apocalyptic end times that he based his predictions on were a reference to the immediate period after JC's supposed death and that it was all written as a response to the Roman occupation of Palestine. For instance, the anti-christ was the Roman emperor. All his "predictions" were, therefore, wildly inaccurate.

Indeed.

The ignorant refusal to admit new facts is one of the things about fundy Christians that amuses me.
That they feel entitled to point & laugh at other religions is quite funny too.

We now know (because there have been found better more complete & better preserved copies of 'The Book of Revelations') that 'the number of the beast' was actually written as 616, not 666.
It also turns out that this is simple old Jewish numerology for the Roman Emperor.
Emperor Nero, in fact.

Not that any of those fundy Christian types will ever accept the new facts & change their strange end time style 'Armageddon will happen any second now....er, now, um...now etc etc' views.

It's all about trying to control people, I think, and so admissions that previous texts were inaccurate or wrong just don't happen.

Meanwhile don't think about any of this stuff & just look at those weird guys over there and laugh at/be afraid of their weird difference(s).

Yeah, I was gonna write that it was Nero but I wasn't 100%. Didn't Nero destroy the second Temple-On-The-Mount too?

The apocalyptic Jewish cult that evolved into Christianity was a reaction to "God having turned his back on his chosen people" by allowing Palestine to be invaded by the Roman pagans... obviously due to the peoples' lack of piety (the usual old BS when things are bad). Yep, the messiah had to be on his way therefore.

Yeah, Armageddon was almost 2000 years ago... or should have been.

Na, fundies, they'll never learn because it's all about wishful thinking. Great way to be manipulated.

ANY fundy scares me because they think they have a right to persecute.

Be that as it may, the incidences he predicted did occur. They may not have worked out like clockwork. but many did occur. Unless, of course, you deny anyone of them ever did. Skepticism is a good trait and I'm glad you guys have it. Being guided by contemporary scientific evidence before accepting, or even believing, is a solid guide. History is also a good basis, but you are relying on the researcher's interpretation. A combination of both, of course, gives the best balance to arrive to a conclusion and keeps one from being superstitious.

Anyway, I feel we're deviating from the essence of my post which is 'precognition'. Nostradamus was merely an example because he is a popular celebrated, maybe even controversial figure. Precognition is a human trait no computer will ever have because it is a machine, no matter how complex it is programmed to process any information. It is still dependent on a human feeding the information to get what he/she wants.

Contemporary science cannot prove nor disprove this human trait let alone the existence of a soul, although scientists are confident they can arrive to a conclusion with their new found field of science such as Quantum Physics, String Theories. etc., that wraps up the era of the Newtonian mechanical world. But from TV documentaries I have seen so far on the matter, They're at it :) That being said, don't you think it's better to keep an open mind rather than dismissing my opinion as false altogether?

Nostradamus "predictions" are based on his readings of The book of Revelations in the Bible.

Yeah I got that part, but again this is all about a machine possibly (and I use that term very loosly) doing something with time, not a person....

I only used religion as a reference point leading to a human trait. My example of Nostradamus apparently ruffled some feathers and misconstrued my post to be religious in nature, which it is not. I'm hoping I clarified that.

Well, I can't help but think the original premise is inaccurate.
As I suggested this all makes far more sense & is far more plausible if it turns out to be a health forecasting device, something which would also benefit the Iranian state as it would any state.

I just don't believe it's really about a 'time machine' as originally claimed.
'Nutty crazed Iranians' might suit some prejudices these days but just because the Persians have a different religion that doesn't make them all suicidal lunatics.

(and no, I'm not Iranian or Persian)

My feathers were not ruffled. I was not being religious I believed and I did not think Kukudrulu was being religious ... just giving my reasons for why Nostradamus was NOT psychic and did not in fact make any predictions bar what people choose to read into his Bible inspired nonsense. And for that I get accused of being closed minded. Heh.

Tim Minchen has, btw Kuku, admitted to being preachy. I would not dismiss him so easily he speaks for a lot of people. His unbelief is quite sincere. I thought he would be a friendly way of answering your question. Nevermind.

Yeah, the Pope Song is brilliant.

You know he sang that at the last Reason Rally in the US of A?

He's just released the Thank You God (Sam's Mum) song on youTube btw.
