Re: PHYSICS/SPACE: Legitimate time travel proposal

I am speculating that this purported science could be used to extract
information-only, from the past light cone (minkowski spacetime) and use it
to re-create past people places and things, if so desired. I realize that if
this technology is eventually possible, it might be more attractive to simply
re-create "non-self aware" entities of the past, having the actaul people
there might be more interesting.
