The concept of time travel i guess is a good example. You go back to see yourself in diapers......how does that work? you've altered one dimension (time) to go back, but you suddenly exist as two individuals if you decide to stay there. Is that reality biting or illusion knocking?
Is there a possibility that if you go back in time and see yourself in diapers (the new diapers makes babies look over dressed), it may be that there will be only one you, the one in diapers that is?
The only catch is that you may not retain the awareness of the future you. If that were possible, there are interesting possibilities.
What I am suggesting is that if one can time travel, one would end up in that time as one was at that time and space and not as an additional person, the entity that started on the travel . This will avoid the various paradoxes and leave everything status quo ante.
Hmm a very typical StarTrek ending.... the time travellers ended up causing the "issue" in the first place and every thing fits in perfectly, like a 'paint by numbers'. You already get the answer before starting.
I think that time paradox should deserve it's own thread!
I can't help but putting tense in what I write, it's actually quite difficult to see, from my ow point of view, no time. I was given this concept at an early age (*beep*).
I prefer the idea of "initiative/instinct"!
Although, Instinct is no trick of the mind.
Who knows who invented time, maybe it was invented (first concept wise) by us as a very early age of evolution...
Actually time is more of a perception than a concept! Like we see in 3D. We could have evolved differently, but it just so happens that every thing we have given a name to, has this same perception... But it doesn't mean it exists, it just means that we (animals...) perceive it that way, like we see in 3D. Although other animals see other colours, we see only see basic ones, therefore we should not approve time (nor 3D) just because we see it that way.
We just need to concentrate on our instinct, once we can do that it will tell us the next step in understanding ourselves "scientifically".
