What good would killing Hitler do in a multiverse? What difference will any changes make to the traveller as all possible outcomes are already created within the superverse? I don't think you thought that through slayer...

It beggars belief! Not Titor's story telling, but that some convince themselves that what he writes is truth, or even think his story is actually plausible...it isn't.
Physical time travel is an impossibility. Even in a 'clockwork' universe (which it isn't) time travel is an impossibility. You simply cannot travel through something that doesn't actually exist. Time is nothing more than the observation of motion and its duration. It can only be reviewed in memory. It cannot be travelled physically.

That's exactly the kind of reply I've been waiting for.
Then what the hell good is it him supposedly coming back to 'Warn' us if we are to do nothing about it?
We shouldn't attempt to change anything? As you've stated "What good would it do in a multiverse? What difference will any changes make to the traveller as all possible outcomes are already created within the superverse?
So in essence he was just a time traveling Doom Porn star?
Have YOU thought this through?
As for morality, again I point to the "universal" balance of good and evil. For every worldline where there is peace, there is a worldline that has destroyed itself. The decisions and actions we take as individuals can only help those who we have direct interaction with. I believe it is wrong to be capable of helping and do nothing. My struggle is in the irony that if everyone just "did nothing", on every worldline, there would be no action and thus no immorality or evil (no good either).
Since every possible outcome, event and possibility is happening and will happen, then all good and all evil balances out in the superverse. After the reality of multiple worlds sank into our collective thought, the one basic change to all religious dogma is the concept that good and evil does not exist as an organized force in our lives nor can it be used as a useful way to judge what God may think of a situation. Good and evil are personal experiences that can only guide what we do as individuals and how we relate to others. This outlook also makes it impossible for me to judge any other person or event.
We cannot see the entire universe as God sees it therefore we will never be Gods or be capable of judging anything outside of ourselves. My actions can only be judged as good and bad by me and my God. There is also an area of thought that maintains all of the "yous" out there will make up the "you" that eventually returns to God. In that manner, it is frustrating to know that you are capable of and acting on all of the thoughts and ideas you have regardless of what the "you" here is doing. How good or evil do you think you can be?
There is even an idea (supported in physics apparently but I have a hard time with this one) that there is some sort of communication going on between all of the "yous" that are out there. Some people think that memories, intuition and conscious are actually attempts by one version of "you" to talk to another.

I just wish we knew the author because then we could see his/her other work.
I mean how many Titor wannabes have we seen on ATS?.
He started it all .

Well there is another option.. He could of been someone who did know stuff and found this avenue the most appropriate or effective way of drawing attention to the issue... But who really knows..

I had to stop reading the instant I saw that Popular Mechanics cover from 2036, which included the headline:
"E-Books the New Way to Read"
