I can’t seem to grasp a hold on the whole time travel thing. It seems as if I cannot find a way to take it all very seriously therefore, I am having a very hard time with the post. What is there to write about in something that I see as unreal and out of my thinking of the here and now? The only thing I can come up with is the fact that if it were true that people could travel in time I think it is against everything God created for us. Why would anyone want to know what tomorrow has in store for us? Seem to me like it would scare the hell out of me! And why change the past? Sure I have lots of things about my past that I often think “I wish I would have done things differently”, but if I changed them I would not be the person I am today. So going back and forth in this thing called time is not a subject I agree with. Leave the past alone and let God worry about tomorrow
In class something was said about why the doubles of those traveling in time do not just talk to their double and tell them what is going on. That way every one is on the same page. That got me to thinking about the movie The Time Travlers Wife. In this movie the guy was a jumper of time, but he had no control over it, but he seemed to handle it pretty well. He made trips back in time as well as into the future. The reason I am writing about this is because he knew that he time traveled and all of his other selves knew it as well. He even talked to his child self and on many occasions he tried to change the fact that his mother was killed in a car accident, but no matter how hard he had tried to change that, he never could. However, at one point in the movie he got the winning numbers of a lottery ticket and was able to win the lottery by going into the future. So it seems that things that has already happen can not be changed, but things that are yet to come can be changed, or that was what I thought until he tried to keep his real self from getting killed and he could not change that even though it was a future event. The time travler had to witness not only his mother dying over and over again, but he also had to see his own death and could do nothing about it. The good part about time travel was he got to watch his wife grow up, but he never told her that they would get married. He wanted her to fall in love with him because she wanted to not because she thought she had to. He also got to spent time with his child, who was a jumper also. So he could not change some things, other things he could, but all in all by everyone being on the same page and knowing what the other one was doing, things worked out for the best. I think the doubles should just talk it out.
