One of the premises of the grandfather paradox in time travel is that of inconsistency. I.e, going back in time to kill your grandfather or grandmother prevents your birth. The solution is simple, going back in time makes YOU either your your grandfather himself, grandmother, their siblings, their parents, their children (of whom some may be your parents) or their in-laws. Or take that to represent any one alive during that time. That way you get to experience the past from another being.
Enter my new theory called inverse re-incarnation in which you become your ancestors rather than their descendants, as most major eastern religion teaches that your children may be your departed parents reincarnated. With this new idea, the question that naturally follows is: how do you control who you end up becoming in the past?
While the parallel universe theory negates some of the implications of the grandfather paradox, it isnt coherent enough (the presence of you simultaneously existing and terminating your granddad in a parallel universe doesn't sound legit). Imagine the chaos that would ensue in the universe having unknown beings spawned from nowhere. In fact my theory compliments the parallel universe theory.
What do you think? Any reason non-mainstream science fails to bring up that possibility? Or are there currently any religions espousing such views?
In my opinion, my view also supports mainstream quantum mechanic theories that reality doesn't exist until measured or observed. So basically "you are everywhere" and "everybody is everybody".
For non-conscious objects, think of the universe we live in like a great big ledger. Any increase in value somewhere must result in a decrease elsewhere. This implies objects can be swapped for another in a parallel universe. The total net offset must be zero to achieve paradox free time travel. This supports the zero-state entropy theory.
(So sorry guys, bad news is you can't bring your phone, tablet and crypto wallet with you.)
Because in order to get time travel right, we need to get the philosophy right.
