BAT THE BREEZE,
and jog down memory lane.
Or not—I’ve just watched yet another UT video on ‘timeslip’ experiences. If you read me you’ll know that I am very against the possibility of physical ‘Time Travel’. It’s both a logical/rational absurdity and an impossible (wishful) dream, even if we leave out the popular clichés*.
BUT— wotif it’s not you (per se) that goes back, but some manner of perception? (Which for obvious reasons would have to be intangible—ergo, consciousness?)
THERE ARE SCHOOLS
of thinking that have pondered these ponders and come up with all kinds of notions to address the issues and fill in the gaps. But in brief, if wotever you send back in time is tangible it has no option but to distort (dammit: rewrite) history.
UNLESS we are dealing
with endless repetitions of a circular history in which we are on a carousel forever—sure, you can die, but how many times have you done that already? Will you ever stop yourself endlessly doing it? How? (Can’t be done. Anything you do now may seem novel to you but you’ve been there endless times before and are doomed by the fact to do it all again …). Brrr.
Hey! Don’t growl at me, not my idea—I first came across it in some writings (and then it kept popping up all over—Jung would be delighted with the synchronicities).
SPEAKING OF WHOM
I happened across this on the Toobe—
—to get to ol’ Carl you’ll have to sit through the clichéd Sir Victor Goddard bit and other stuff but it’s all good clean fun.
So while we’re here, why not pig out and have a good wallow—
—but I don’t recommend following it up any further. It opens up a whole new
* Such as the endless ‘Wotif’ clichés’:
Wotif you went back in time and accidentally killed your grandfather before he sired your mother? Obviously you then wouldn’t be born, so you couldn’t go back in time and kill him, so he is now free to sire everybody thus unknowingly ensuring his own doom/not doom doom/not doom … etc ad infinitem (have fun!).
And now ponder the significance of this wee column—
(after which the increases are big leaps and giant bounds; such that in no time you have many millions of direct ancestors … lucky you ** …
** So if you do go back any distance be very careful never to harm anyone at all … for your own sake. Brrrr.
And bearing that in mind, be careful never to create any changes … don’t even slap a skeeter or kick a rat, or intervene to prevent the birth of one Adolf Schicklgruber. For that matter, don’t even breathe …
