Time travel is impossible

If it were possible we would be having visits from our future selves. You can say "well that means we haven't discovered it yet" Well if you go into the future then somebody would have, if time travel exists then that means everything has already happened and everything we are doing now, has already been done millions of times, so my hypothesis is one of two.

1. It is not possible to time travel

or

2. Our future is that we all went extinct before we could discover it

This can mean that we might be able to create a time travel machine and go back in time before we went extinct and stop extinction and change future, but wouldn't make my two hypothesis' false?

3. Go look up paradox in the dictionary.
4. Read up on the grandfather paradox.
5. Alternate universes.


EDIT: Also, traveling into the future is much more likely to happen.

Why would someone come back from the future to this present time. This isn't exactly a Hitler-tier-better-change-this-event-in-history moment in time. Not even close.

Or we've travelled back in time as transparent observers and 'guides'.

So we can save ourselves? Explore? Maybe teach our past selves in the 1100s all of our current technology, so when time passes to present of that time traveler, we will be hundreds of years more advanced.

That would mean we don't really have free will and everything we do is pre planned and is destined to happen.

It wouldn't be worth the risk just to speed up something that had already happened. There is no reason at all to speed up progress that happened in the past.

what if people of the future are choosing to observe the sacred rule of traveling to the past? Or maybe they simply refuse to travel to the past, or can only travel to the future.

Or it's Back To The Future style, we're in the crappy timeline that doesn't get hoverboards in three years, and the time travelers are just smart enough to blend in and try to avoid drastically altering history, as literally entire film sagas can be made about the efforts to repair such damage.

If we were to invent time travel, it would only be possible to travel backwards to the point the first time machine worked.
It would create a loop in time starting at that point.
We'd be free to travel back to the point it was opened, but no further.

Time travel forward is possible.

If an astronaut leaves on a 10 year mission and travels a certain rate of speed (I forget the exact number) the entire mission, when he came home, 100 years would have passed on Earth, while only 10 passed for him because time slows down as velocity increases.
