What would happen if....

Posted by: rphk123

So you go back in time, find your grandfather and kill him, meaning you would never have been born meaning you could never have gone back in time to kill your grandfather. What happens?

You would create an endless time-loop

Time is a straight line that could not be altered. Time would fix itself and somehow you would be born.

Nothing would happen because you have already been born in your timeline so you couldn't have suddenly not been born

You would create a new timeline where you weren't born, while existing in the timeline you're from.

It is impossible because you wouldn't be conscious.

I would argue that if time travel were possible, anything that we do in the future could not affect the past. So lets say that you wanted to go back in time and kill Hitler as a youth. Something would happen that would prevent you from accomplishing this task, and maybe even result in him being the way he was. Time would have already incorporated your actions before you did them.

Geogeer: you just said what i said but you broke it down.

Oh wait no, you are saying "Time is a straight line that could not be altered. Time would fix itself and somehow you would be born." or something like that. But our ideas are close.

Multi-Universe theory, So you killed your grandpa in a universe that you don't exist

Your consciousness is transferred to a different entity: you are born, but of another family, and you may lose your memory of your previous past (but you would recall the time travel and perceive it all as a single stretch of time).
