In the first 10 seconds of The Adam Project, we see an epigraph: "Time travel exists. You just don't know it yet."
Netflix's new sci-fi adventure follows Adam Reed, a fighter pilot from the year 2050 who travels back in time to link up with his younger self (Walker Scobell) and his father (Mark Ruffalo) to save the world.
Most of us are happy to lose ourselves in a more simplified, fictionalized idea of what time travel looks like instead.
In time-travel movies, the theories are proven, the complicated formulas are chalked out, and the starships are fully funded - all we have to do is hop along for the ride
The Adam Project provides a different take on time travel and raises interesting ideas about how it affects memories.
Without the ability to time travel, it's hard to say what our memories might look like - but ultimately, he believes it comes down to speculation and semantics, along with the understanding that time simply isn't linear.
In the movie, Adam gets a healthy dose of thoughtful counsel from his kid self - so much so that it changes his perception of his own past for the better.
Like any time-travel fiction, The Adam Project refers to a surprisingly possible reality — where we could jump ahead in time and return to see how things develop or (less possibly) where we could jump to the past and attempt to reframe the future. Theories and formulas aside, the possibility of it all is what makes time travel so appealing.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
