If time travel is indeed possible, I have a funny feeling moving backwards would leave you with no memory of the event. By moving backwards you've
undone everything that's happened since the moment you went back to. If you moved your physical self to a time before yourself you would have no idea
who you were, where your are or how you got there. The Physical self exists, but as far as the experiences you had you haven't had them.
Moving forwards how ever, would leave all your memories intact, as well as the process of moving forwards exactly as they should be.
I think Time travel is an amazing concept, but it could be rather finicky.
I feel this way merely due to the theorized processes involved, and how can do identical individuals exist in the same reality, when one's memories
could greatly impact the one from the future. I would think, for time travel to the past to work, there would have to be your past self ready to
accept the future mind/being.
Time travel forwards and time travel backwards are two different things in my eyes. Moving forward could be achieved differently than moving
backwards. For instance, if you (when the technology is there.) preserved yourself with cryogenics you would as the observer wake up how ever many
years in the future as your current self. Seemingly having traveled through time in moments.
Moving through time, just seems different either way. It would make more sense to move your consciousness backwards to a past self, and at that moment
the future no longer exists.
How this could be done, I have no idea but no current theories seem to hold any achievable merit.
