I would argue the inverse of this. It is only the physical that can time travel.

Consciousness is physical in that it is a result of electrical impulses in the brain which contain moving electrons and hence mass.

If your consciousness can time travel, then so must your body or some other vessel for your consciousness. Since most methods of time travel would entail forces which the human body can't withstand you might have to transmit your consciousness using a vessel which may be impossible without destroying it and producing a mere copy.

Probably not. But it'd be cool if it were possible. I'd invest in housing and cash out right before the bubble burst, then move over to bitcoin and play that market, and there would be a lot of people I'd beat the happy shit out of while I'd only be charged as a minor.

Information doesn't exist you chicken fingerer. There's no magical intangible thing called information, it's called sensory input from your environment entering your brain. The electromagnetic waves and oscillations in the atmosphere that cause you to see and hear are not "information" just because they are entering your puny brain, they are merely information to you because you are perceiving them. In other words it's merely an abstract concept of the subjective human brain because we perceive things as information.

What’s this babble? Consciousness, time travel? Stuff and nonsense

It's OK. Nobody expect you to understand it, ya thick paddy twit.

Consciousness is a property of the brain.

Right. So consciousness is simultaneously "nonsense" and "a property of the brain". Thanks for the lecture, Dr Stupid. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Side: Yes
