I've always wondered about this idea that time travelers could screw up the future or that anything they could change had already been attempted in
history (history can't be changed). See, I always thought that when we travel into the past that it's a whole other universe. Don't ask me how it
happens. I don't know. I just think that if traveling into the past were possible that time paradoxes won't exist. We could do anything we want and it
wouldn't impact the world we came from.
I think it's possible that history can't be changed. I'm more likely to believe that than the idea that we could screw up our future. I think the
universe would have a natural defense against paradoxes. Ideally, it would be a whole other universe and not the same one. But it's possible it's the
same one. Or maybe time travel into the past is impossible. But that doesn't make sense to me.
My feeling is there're spacial and temporal particles. Spacial particles are like atoms or molecules (of atoms). We can use spacial particles to
interact in the 3 dimensions. Temporal particles, on the other hand, are used to interact with the 4th dimension. Maybe temporal particles don't
respond to spacial particles, but do respond to temporal particles. Perhaps temporal particles are released by spacial particles? Anyway, once we can
detect temporal particles then we can at least observe or reconstruct the past from the measurements we get. Time is like a big pool of temporal
particles. Of course, this isn't a bona fide theory. It's just an idea I had one random day about how we use spacial particles to observe space, so I
wondered if we could use temporal particles to observe time.
What if there's no such thing as time? Could it just be an illusion we're privileged to experience? For all we know, this is real. That's how we treat
it. But maybe we're distorted. Everything we observe and experience is part of this distortion and it creates this shared illusion. I am not saying
this is fake. "I think, therefore I am." What I'm saying is it's not the complete reality, just part of it.
That's not to say that there's an after-life or UFOs or angels. I fully expect my body to shut off when I die and decay and to be reabsorbed into the
earth living machine. I do not anticipate an after-life. I do not pretend that the reality we know can be safely ignored. It can't be. It might be an
illusion, but it operates on the same "wavelength" that we do and whatever happens is as real as it gets.
