Re: peer-reviewable and repeatable experiment proposal

Good idea, but best to drop your bug testing loop into the time travelling loop.

For example, 1) Design and build a Time Machine.

2) Send time machine to the past at a chosen time, if it arrives with bugs, fix as many as you can and send it back further.

3) Once there are no bugs, send it back to the present (1 second in the future from the time machines new perspective).

4) Do your experiments.

This means you get a bug free time machine rather quickly. Now if teaching past yourselves how to bug fix the machines is an exponentially increasing problem (perhaps the laws of physics trying to keep hold of your device!) then just send it to the future for them to bug fix instead...
