The equation for time dilation:
t = time you as a human observe
t0 = time passed on say....Earth
v = your velocity away from earth
c = speed of light constant
In order for time to even stop (not going backwards in time), you need to hit the speed of light (actually not even...since at speed of light, you get a divide by zero error)
However! In order for you to hit the speed of light:
The equation for velocity given energy:
v = your velocity
m = your mass
E = energy
c = speed of light constant
The square root in this case MUST equal 1. The problem is, no matter how much energy you throw at your mass, the mc2/E value gets infentisimally small, but
never 0. As such, the square root can never be 1 since it'll always be 0.999...999
- To slow down time to a standstill, you must be traveling at the speed of light
- To be traveling at the speed of light, you must be providing literally infinite energy
- As such, the best you'll ever achieve is super super super slow forward movement of time, never a full stop nor movement backwards in time
