Time travelling and time machines are always fascinating to talk about.
We have also seen many films that have shown the concept of time travel, like Hollywood blockbusters ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy, ‘The Butterfly Effect,’ ‘Star Trek’ and more.
Are you sure if this is for real? Can we actually go back in the past or move forward in time?
The topic is debatable and many scientists have investigated whether it could one day be made a reality.
Albert Einstein for example, concluded in his later years that the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously, and most are familiar with his well-known concept of relativity.
Moreover, if we look into ancient texts we can find a number of references to time travelling.

In Hindu mythology, there is the story of King Raivata Kakudmi who travels to meet the creator Brahma.
According to this story, although Raivata’s trip did not last long, when he returned to Earth, 108 yugas had already passed on Earth.
One yuga represents about 4 million years. The explanation Brahma gave to Raivata is that time runs differently in different planes of existence.
