we all know about time travel paradox, how you kill you grand father and so on so forth. Now consider this, instead of one timeline we have a multitude of them, forever expanding based on the decisions you make. Like the universe it is forever expanding based on the decisions you make. Every time you make a decision you branch off from the original timeline creating your own. This timeline would be identical from the previous one up to the different point. If you did decide to kill your grand father it would have no effect because that action would cause another "branch" to come forth and you would still be in that original timeline. go ahead flame away

There are no paradoxes in time travel. Time is an expansion of the three dimensions in a fourth. Up and down left and right. Forwards and backwards, all have previous directions. Each dimension has all the previous available movements added. The timeline is also not quite straight, but more of a flow chart. We call this big picture the master record. The universe remembers other outdated events.

Time is personal. Even if I managed to find a way to go forward into the future or back to the past, I will always personally be going forward. So if I went back and killed my grandfather, I would still be alive because my personal perceptions and timeline stay with me. There's only a "paradox" if you are looking at it from an objective, outside perspective, which is impossible.
