Time: Continuum Invictus

Rather than plunge into an ocean of knitty gritties on time travel focus would be on the  result of a hypothetical time traveling exercise.

Often, the author wonders what it would be if time travel is used to change the past and hence the present and hence the future at an individual level.

In other words, if I had gone back in time and changed certain initial conditions (read life changing events in the past), would my temporally responsive after- efffects (read consequences, future,result ) change. ..

Assuming they would, I see two schools of thought to that hypothetical phenomenon…

The first —-> Uncertainty Principle

Remember the movie , Butterfly Effect ? Simply put, there are n (with n tending to an infinity) number of different  possibilities depending on a very small change in the events that shape consequences.

Time is like this crazy random number generating machine that if run twice  back to back , with almost same inputs will still give two different outputs!!

So, you can change the present if you manage to go back to the past but you just cannot change it according to your fancy/will

and now ….

the second —-> Destiny

(Religious fellas will love this ) It is all already written! There is fate ..there is destiny already decided.

So if you change  some defining event of the past , the intermediate events following that will re-shape themselves in such a way that your present will still remain the same.

boleto …You cannot change anything even if you do try. Because it is fate.

Moral of the story: No point in trying to change time becasue you can’t get what you want by this method. Instead, learning to cook is a better option 😛
