It is an accepted theory that time travel could not be possible because of causality ( besides other things ) and so goes the grandfather paradox. To me it sounds like they are trying to make a very complex situation into a very narrow minded understanding, so as to understand why it cannot be possible. "we cannot do this so lets create an answer to our loaded question"
Causality is real and a very serious problem in the attempts of time travel. What if there was a way to transverse space-time? There was this particle machine that made your atoms vibrate in such a way that it sent you to a higher dimension , one which allowed the ability to enter dimensions from another time? I figure if this was the case time would not explode in on itself ( or reality ) if you had to meet your grandfather because of the inherent nature of the space-time structure. So just like the reflex action in the body or the force of a magnet so you would not be able to in any way, shape or form interact with anything or anyone what would effect the future outcome, or disrupt the overall constant of the certain space-time structure.
So you would never be able to meet your grandfather, the stable nature of being in that time-space would never allow the ability for either you or your grandfather to make contact, or at least not the type of contact that would prevent your future existence. I can even imagine that nature itself would would destroy the time traveler before such an action could take place. So in time travel mode you are both dead and alive until the vibrational frequency comes to a point where it cannot continue based on the travelers current "forward" projection in that space.
Now i bet u are saying " What about chaos theory?!! " And yes that would be a good question which would lead me to hope that all of time is a constant, and not a passing of moment to moment. If you are going to time travel then it technically has already happened to the extend that you have already gone back in time but are still going to be going back in time. This kinda removes the idea that we are in control of our "destiny".
Maybe destiny is on a higher dimension plain then this 4d reality..
Anyways .. time travel into the future should be possible regardless of causality, or maybe even in the transporting process of going back on time you become invisible. That would not be that ideal though because of the inability to interact on any "real" level , but i can compromise if i must.
I am sorry I did miss posting an actual question.
The question would be ( and this is in hypothetical land ppl ) If we knew time travel was possible would you risk traveling back or forward in time even at the expense of altering your complete natural reality constant? So u could come back in time but in doing so you would have to accept that everything is the product of predestination .So the act of traveling back in time creates your complete structured destiny where as others who do not can still play out their chosen destiny if they so choose.
