    Question Weird question.


    Okay, now say there was a way to go back in time and you ended up changing something which ended up drastically altering the course of history from that point on. As a result your great grandfolks weren't born thus never married to conceive one of your grand parents, parents never exited, and so you were never realized. Now with you not in the equation and unable to repeat your folly, does the time travel event never take place hurtling you back where you started? Or do you think you would just evaporate but the events will remain unchanged as is after your meddling since you existed outside of space/time?

    A pickle indeed. Thoughts?

    Cool
    Let me see, that would be Back to the Future, Time Cop, The Matrix, The Terminator and Time Changer. As The One might work, but I think it is a stretch, thou.

    hmm, its a vicious circle aint it. theoretically, undoing your own creation would stop with you not existing, but that would also mean youd never time travel and screw up anything.
    a toughy.
    I think that ultimately, youd just never exist and that would be the end of it.

    And a bitter fate it would be.

    Option A: (Probably what Macman said I just put it in easier to understand)
    You would never go back in time, because you would never exist, therefore, if you do exist, you know that you never went back in time and screwed it up because it is impossible.

    well to travel back in time you just gotta get to the point of light speed which is no easy task but i heard that scientist in some top reserch facility have zapped subatomic particles into the future (they vanish then reappare in 1 second)

    I was reading a quantum physics book by Wolf and he mentioned creating a ring of neutron stars to sling shot around to get to the required velocity. Yah, after that it's "easy". :bone:
