Reality is malleable and traversable - Ostronomos - Nov 21, 2019

This is indicated by traversable wormholes. Such wormholes allow for time travel.

How do you know we’re not in one right now?

This is my wormhole. There are many like it, but this one is mine. 

Get the hell out of my wormhole, Z.

Didn’t know it was occupied. Wink You could have hung up a sign.

Quote:Reality is malleable and traversable

The existence of time and change would seem to imply the first. ('Malleable' means 'pliable') If reality now is different than reality in the past or future, then reality can change and has some element of flexibility.

'Traverse' basically means 'move across or through', with 'traversable' an adjective suggesting the possibility of moving across or through. Certainly parts of reality (the kind of things that we consider physical objects) can move through reality considered as space and time.

Except that we don't know that traversable wormholes even exist. It's just speculation.

We can just as easily show that reality is malleable and traversable by moving a finger.

We don’t know the actual shape but almost all artist depictions of a wormhole are of a funnel that’s wide at the ends and narrower in the middle. Now as I understand it cosmologists say the shape of the universe is either closed, open or goes on forever. A saddle shaped universe is associated with the open universe I believe. Now if I was in a wormhole and if artist funnel depictions are true then shouldn’t the universe seem like it’s saddle shaped to us?
