    Abstract: Based on specified logical, ontological, and other relevant considerations, it is concluded that in the
    very-long-run: (1) forward-directed time travel capacity is highly likely; and, (2) past-directed time travel
    capacity is likely. Four logically possible forward-directed, and four logically possible past-directed, types of
    (hypothetical) time machines are identified. Two different approaches (the "practical"; the "bi-temporal") are
    utilized in attempting to characterize the meaning of time travel. It apparently turns out that the concept of
    "embedded-subjective time" (i.e. the embedded-temporality of the human time-traveler, as distinguished from
    either merely-subjective time or literal-wristwatch time) is especially helpful in characterizing whether time
    travel did or did not occur in a particular circumstance.
