Physicists from the University of Queensland in Australia set out to simulate a computer experiment, which could prove the possibility of time travel at the quantum level, predicted in 1991. They managed to simulate the behavior of a single photon passing through a wormhole in space-time in the past and engaging with itself. Such a trajectory of a particle is called a closed timelike curve, i.e. a photon returns to the original space-time point and its worldline closes.

 

The researchers studied two scenarios. In the first, the particle passes through a wormhole, returning to the past, and interacts with itself. In the second scenario, the photon, forever enclosed in a closed timelike curve interacts with another, ordinary particle.


What difference does it make?

This is interesting, so retrocausality may impact things. Did they mention how such a wormhole could form? I was recently reading a way to test if the SMBH at the center of the milky way is a wormhole

They only ever say anything about quantum scale time travel and there are no implications about the possibility of macroscopic time travel.

The only direct implication I can see is that this could possibly be used for transferring information through time.

strictly speaking everything is information, remember that article awhile back about turning light into matter.

^ This. And if we can get the hang of that, we can basically travel FTL and time travel.

It would still allow only time travel to points in time where we left devices that create things from matter.

The most interesting implications in my opinion would be devices that provide an insight into the near future.

No, it would only allow time travel through wormholes. They could be artificially generated possibly (good luck!) but strictly hypothetically speaking this is incorrect. If you could find a way to manipulate it you could build constructs at the subatomic scale.

This is interesting and reminds me I need to keep reading constructor theory

/shameless plug.

I wonder if he has played around with the idea of multi temporal constructs that exist on separate closed time -like curves simultaneously

Then the world will turn into chaos with everyone knowing they don't have free will. It's something people would go insane about.
