Gödel’s example would be if a time traveller gets into a rocket ship that is not a time machine, flies off, and arrives at a point in the past or future of his departure due to the overall structure of space-time.Personal time is the time traveller’s sense of time, whereas external time is the time of the place surrounding the time traveller.The time traveller has travelled to the past if the arrival time is earlier.In cases of time travel, personal time is different from external time (Smith).Time travel has an assortment of theories, with views on the definition of time travel, the metaphysics of time, causation, and arguments against the possibility of time travel with responses to counter them.

According to Weaver (2010), “a basic tourist criterion concerns travel purpose which is dominated by three major categories – leisure and recreation, visiting friends and relative and business.From the research conducted, Stear’s (2005) definition of a ‘tourist’ is the most flexible and relevant in the context of today’s society however; Dickman’s (1997) definition of ‘tourism’ is most accurate as it incorporates the entire tourism industry and not just the physical act of traveling.An international student may wish to travel overseas first to experience the culture of the country they plan on studying in, however under this definition, even if they wish to take part in and visit tourist attractions which are recreational and leisure bas...

Overall, this discussion has outlined the continued difficulties in producing a unified definition that encompasses all aspects of tourists and their impacts on tourism so that statistical and theoretical conclusions can be draw for economic and academic purposes.This said, many forms of ‘types of travel’ (Stear 2005, p.5) have emerged clouding the nature of its original meaning making it difficult to transcend this meaning into a contemporary societal view.Tourism: ‘tourism is travel and temporary stay, involving at least one night away from the region of a person’s usual home that is undertaken with the major expectation of satisfying leisure needs that are perceived as being more enjoyably able to be satisfied by being at places outsi...

The fourth and final definition that I will present is the longest, but I will wade through the pros and cons of this definition.What I do not like about this definition is that it knocks filmmakers near the end of the definition and makes a subtle but arrogant argument that filmmakers are not as smart as science fiction literature writers, but I certainly believe they are.It is as follows: “Science fiction film is a film genre that uses science fiction: speculative, science-based depictions of phenomena that are not necessarily accepted by mainstream science, such as extraterrestrial life forms, alien worlds, extrasensory perception, and time travel, often along with futuristic elements such as spacecraft, robots, cyborgs, interstellar ...
