Hi I'm from the future!
If you kill your grandfather before he meets your grandmother, you'll have never been born
If you were NEVER born, you couldn't go back and kill your grandfather, so you are born.
and it goes on INFINITELY!!!!!!!!!!!!
The term bootstrap paradox came from Robert Heinlein's book, "By His Bootstraps".
When items are passed from future to past, no one will know the true origin, creator and when it was invented.
If someone were to pass items from future to past, there would be NO meaning to the lives of the original creators.
If someone accidentally used the predestination paradox, it would be most likely that the whole earth would be in constant repetition
Fun Fact 1:
Fun Fact 2:
The speed of light is generally considered to be a physical speed barrier
Fun Fact 3:
A spaceship, traveling at any speed, slows down as it passes through a gravitational field
20 000 meters per second
19 999 meters per second
Time travel might just be a theory, but, maybe someday it will become reality. And if it does, there's just as much of a chance that one of you will invent it as anyone else.
