If you got a message from yourself in the future (yes I know it's sci-fi movie shizz, but it's worth a thought) what would you do?

say if this message gave you strict instructions of what to do in a certain situation, would you heed these warnings or would you ignore them?

would you purely not read the message?

what would you do?

I don't understand. Are you trying to say "If you got a message from your future self" or "If you got a message from yourself in the future"?

In theory, you'd follow out the instructions, otherwise your future self would not exist as he is... (?)

=/ I'd probably disregard and forget about it though.

I'd sit around and fap, because either way the future would end up the same, since otherwise it would be impossible for my future self to send a message back to me.

id do it because if it really was me in the future, i know that myself wouldnt believe it to be real. so i would send a picture of myself in the future to my past self along with a symbol i made up a long time ago that only i know about. that way id know its the real deal.
#11
if i figured out a way to send mail through time...

obviously its important enough to read.

But if you did do it..then your future self wouldn't exist because he would have no need, yet if he didn't exist, then he would have a need..and I wouldn't have gotten the letter..then it would loop..and...

Excellent!

I'd do it. Knowing myself, I'd have told myself why I was doing it, what I was avoiding. it would have to be pretty awful.

Actually in theory you wouldnt follow the instructions. Because if you did then your future self would never have needed to send them, therefore how could he have sent it. The fact that he had to come back to give the instruction means that you didnt follow them.
#21
No, knowing me, I'd send back the wrong instructions for a laugh and end up getting hurt.

What'd you say?!
#26
ive been crazy with this stuff since i am 12 probably, after thinking it through for years, id obviously follow the instructions

EDIT: but not a letter, i mean like if the ''ME'' of 2020 teleported to 2009 and i see him, or me (how ever you wanna call it) ''in person.''

Time travel questions are stupid, they always contradict themselves and never make sense.
#29
Just like to say, it's all about what kind of future past relationship we have. There's the Terminator one where you can change small events, but the end result is all the same. You have the back to the future relationship where you can change the future actively. This is tricky though because you can have an alternate future created by time travel which would solve paradoxes, or you could just fade away if you killed your grandfather. Fading away seems to be paradoxical though. Finally you have twilight zone time travel in which you can go to the best, but if you try to assassinate Hitler, your gun will jam. So those are the choices.

What happens if I shoot myself when I get the message?

Besides, future me would know to send back something useful like lottery numbers.
#33
I didn't actually answer my own question.. I think I'd do what I said.. unless I knew it was a piss take.. obviously if it's to sleep with a hot woman, would could possibly go wrong, ey?

I'd ignore them. Giving people bad advice, just so I can watch them embarass themselves is a vice of mine.

I'd probably listen to me if I tell the truth. I need proof, though.

I'd probably be all 'Noooo i can't know about my future!' and rip up the envelope. Then sometime in the next 30 years I'd come to my senses, think 'what the hell' and sticky tape it back together to read it.

.. then i'd go buy a bulletproof vest.

What if it said something like "don't follow these instructions"

Screwed.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
#38
I wouldn't follow its instructions because being a not retarded individual I would realize that it's highly unlikely that it's really me from the future.

A more probably series of events is that angry and bitter sea turtles were formulating a plan to bring me to my ultimate demise for suffocating their brethren in plastic bags.
