You can also freely choose the entire path connecting the two. (Or at least, you can think of a physical occurrence for the travel of an arbitrary particle along such a path.)<br /><br />But you have no such choice with time. You cannot pick up a starting instant if it has already gone into the past, and you must helplessly await the arrival of an ending instant if it belongs in future. Also, the idea of multiple paths does not make sense because time is uni-dimensional.<br /><br />These are crucial differences. You can spend energy in space travel (for doing work against fields). But spending energy to visit an arbitrary instant of time is not at all an option available to you.<br /><br />The idea of space-time continuum has fewer merits than disadvantages; the two are not, physically speaking, at a par with each other.<br /><br />---<br /><br /><br />Best,<br /><br />--Ajit<br />Ajit R.

Does he correct Heisenberg?<br /><br />""In relation to these considerations, one other idealized experiment (due to Einstein) may be considered. We imagine a photon which is represented by a wave packet built up out of Maxwell waves. It will thus have a certain spatial extension and also a certain range of frequency. By reflection at a semi-transparent mirror, it is possible to decompose it into two parts, a reflected and a transmitted packet. There is then a definite probability for finding the photon either in one part or in the other part of the divided wave packet. After a sufficient time the two parts will be separated by any distance desired; now if an experiment yields the result that the photon is, say, in the reflected part of the packet, then the probability of finding the photon in the other part of the packet immediately becomes zero. The experiment at the position of the reflected packet thus exerts a kind of action (reduction of the wave packet) at the distant point occupied by the transmitted packet, and one sees that this action is propagated with a velocity greater than that of light.
