This is not possible, who can say why?

@maxdancona,
Wrong, this is impossible, can anyone speculate as to why?

You can return to approximtately where you were before (but you may not be exactly the same as you were before). But you cannot do so any more than you can step in the same river twice. (cf, Heraclitus)

@JLNobody,
Wrong, you can never return to even approximately where you were before. But can you speculate a to why?

@Kolyo,
Heraclitus could not have answered this correctly, along with the answer.

You can never return, even if you never leave.

Thus the graph is wrong

@DNA Thumbs drive,
This thread has nothing to do with science or physics. Who gave it these tags?

@maxdancona,
If you understood physics, you would know the answer.

Its impossible, since we do not know how.

Give us a hint.

Is the answer animal, vegetable or mineral?

@InkRune,
The answer has nothing to do with knowing how to do anything.

@Kolyo,
Hints have been given, though very slight ones. I seek the one who can know the very obvious. I have posted in these groups looking for the perceived intelligence that should be present here.

Given enough time many will work it out.

@DNA Thumbs drive,
I studied something for years in college when getting my Physics degree. I always considered that to be Physics. But I suppose you have some other meaning for the word.

@maxdancona,
All of the parts of the answer pertain to physics, and can be determined to be valid.

Because everything is in a state of entropy, you are not the same person, nor is anywhere you have been, from moment to moment.

@chai2,
No, that is not the answer, but at least you are trying to use physics to determine the answer.

With the bubble theory of universal appearance and disappearance it could be inferred, that if I actually gave you the answer to the question, that it would not help you at all with the question, as one question would vanish into nothingness, as a new question of equal mass and significance emerged instantly out of the same nothingness.

You must look to the image, that is no longer there

@chai2,
Is that you, chai? You seem slightly different somehow.

Where am I?

Why should anyone bother trying to impress a NUTTY PRICK like you?

@DNA Thumbs drive,
If you include the motion of the planet around the sun and the sun around the Galaxy etc, then no, we will never be in the same place twice.
