Interesting....except I am currently not experiencing myself, at all. So, where do you go from there, I wonder.
There is a need to time travel because the past present and future are at separate points on the timeline.
the future isnt "here, now." it just coexists with the present and future.
as if it had already happened just not yet.
i believe we have free will to make decisions in the present moment,
but i also believe that it happens to be predestined.
or repeats itself.
its like the show lost where they say "whatever happened; happened."
i just believe that the future exists already;
like a loop, if the future exists and time travelers are real then
we are just repeating what has already happened.
im not the one who came up with the past present and future coexisting, that was albert einstein.
i claim that the future does exist, you may not agree with me but thats what i believe in.
the theory goes that there is another timeline or parallel existences where we have made different choices, and possible outcomes are different.
Point A is the past point B is the present and point C is the future.
People from point C use time travel to go to point A and creates a never ending loop like a record repeating itself. Point B is where we are having this conversation and it would be the middle of the "loop."

Maybe there is no timeline, there is just the moment. Past and future dont exist and only the now exists.
Time is merely a human construct.edit on 20139America/Chicago09pm9pmSat, 21 Sep 2013 17:25:56 -05000913 by OneManArmy because: (no reason given)
We are creating the future constantly. Or is the present moment creating us? The present moment is the pinnacle of the past, an arrow thrusting forward. Is its target foretold? Has the future been predetermined by the past? Well of course it must be but we can change the direction we are heading in at anytime regardless of the past if we so desire.
Einstein was talking in the abstract when he theorized that past, present, and future are one. We can revisit the past or journey into the future only in the abstract. The only reality is the present.
