Lightbulb You know what bugs me about time travel theories...


In just about every time travel theory, movie, book, anecdote, limerick, and riddle, people always bring up the idea that "if you mess up something in the past, you could wind up not existing or otherwise change the future." This is bulliest of shit, and I'll explain why...

If you go back in time, everything you do already happened because it's the past. This means that before you even invented time travel to go back to the 1800's to f*** your great, great, great, (smokin' hot) grandma, she was already f***ed by her great grandson by the time you invent time travel. You didn't change anything, you just did what already happened in the past. Get what I'm saying?

If you go into the past and do something, it already happened. Going back in time won't suddenly change things in the present because it already happened IN THE PAST.

Although...

Things do still get a little murky when you factor in the idea of: if you did something like kill your great grandma (after you f***ed, of course), that's where things get paradoxical. If you kill your grandmother before she gave birth, how would you exist to kill her in the first place?

But then again, maybe you already know you won't kill her, simply because you exist...

Ok maybe I'm still lost on the whole idea, but I think everyone is.

Thoughts?

If you're implying that I came back from sometime in 2013 to post this so that I could get instant gratification of reading all the responses that ever were all at once, rather than waiting and hitting F5 over and over, you are correct.

Well apparently she wasn't your real grandmother because you still existed to go back and kill whoever you thought your grandmother was...

Someone doesn't understand that logic need not apply to a fictitious plot device which already stretches the boundaries of time and reality very liberally.

If time travel were possible, someone from the future would have already came back to the past to tell us about time travel.
