I was doing some thinking about Mandela effect and time travel.
We all know that Mandela Effect is about rememebering things that were not there to begin with. Of course we can't really tell because it is a
possibility that when there is a change in time, our memmories will change too, so we will remmber things differently as if they were always like
that. It is quiet certain then that even if some people can feel it through time and space, most will just say it is not true because it has always
been like that.
In any case i was thinking about that and came up with a question: What exactly happens if you travel back in time?
I found by myself 3 absolute answers.
But since i have never time traveled i can't know which one is the correct one...
So here is the experiment that leads to the answers:
In the future in a remote lab, there are only 2 people. They are scientists that research time travel. After years they finnaly crack it. You are one
of those scientists.
One day you decide do the following:
You tell one of your coworkers to pour hot coffee on you the next day if he does not talk with you that day, or to say Hello if he does speak with
Without telling him you already know that if he pours that hot coffee on you, you will go back in time and talk with him. If he says Hello, you will
not do it. (This also covers the Theory of the first: Any time loop has a beggining but no definite end.)
The plan is simple: He pours coffee on you, you time travel back in before the coffee incident, meet with the future version of yourself, talk with
your co - worker (And since you are scared that maybe there is such thing as time erasure) and tell him to pour his coffee on you anyway then travel
back and meet your past self before returning to the present.
The next day comes and your co-worker pours his hot coffee on you. You travel back in time you, don't meet your future self because he is not present
and then you talk with your co-worker.
So, here is the deal:
Before you talk with your co-worker the timeline is the same. The second you talk with your co-worker the timeline changes. This means there is no way
to meet your future self before you do the acton of meeting your co-worker.
Which one of those 3 effect is in action?
1: By going back in time you create a parallel universe in which your future self haven't traveled back in time. By showing up and talking with your
co-worker you have started a time-loop and every other you will create a new parallel universe every time he travels back in time. This means you will
meet your past self if you time travel acording to the plan because this will be a 3rd parallel unvierse created from you time traveling for the third
time, and every next parallel universe is created from the previous one you have been.
2. The timeline changes only if you talk with your co-worker first. The moment you do, you create a new parallel world and a paradox issues. Your past
self from the new timeline should talk with your co-worker and not you. The moment you talk with him either a second version of you appears right next
to you as if he was talking already before you talked with your co-worker or a paradox issues and you are imediately destroyed as if you never existed
this rendering only one timeline active : The one where your other self meets your co-worker and talks with him. Basically you are replaced because
you are from obsolete timeline. But in this one, your past self talks with its future self instead.
3: The timeline changes in such a way to fit. You suddenly remmember meeting your future self and talking with him. You remmember everything.
Everything fixes itself in such a way as if always has been like that.
This through experiment is only if timetravel was possible.
It may or may not have any help in deciphering the mandella effect.
Please do not add things and just use the experiment presented.
