Alright, now I don’t know whether someone has already done a paper on this topic, or has published articles/blogs on this topic, so I’ll assume that I’m the first person to come up with this theory to explain a problem/glitch/paradox with Time Travel, that would keep us (The Time Traveler) from changing the outcome on an event. I like to call it ‘The Fixed Outcome Theory’.
The Fixed Outcome Theory:
This theory is not a Scientific Theory, but more of a Meta-Physical theory, conceived by the mind with the help of Imagination and Logic, as opposed to complex mathematical expressions.
According to this theory, once an event has transpired, which results in a certain outcome, that outcome cannot be changed. It’s always FIXED. Even if you can somehow travel back in time, and change the variables that led to the original outcome, you can never change the Outcome of that event. This is because, Time is not a straight line, but a Loop.
So what this essentially means is that, everything that can happen or will happen, as already happened. The moment that you’re living/experiencing right now, the act of reading this blog post, has already happened, and this is probably the 10 Billionth Time you’re are reading this post. Your past, present, and future, are all happening simultaneously. Not on a parallel timeline, but on the same timeline. And since all the events/moments that we experience have already taken place (FIXED), the act of going back in Time and changing the variables that led to the Original Outcome, in order to change that Outcome, would result in a Ripple-Effect that would cause the entire Timeline to Collapse on itself (Implode). Time will seize to exist. So in order to prevent this from happening, the Universe (or God/Creator) has put in place certain parameters or protocols, that cause the variables to adjust automatically in order to make sure that the Outcome of an event remains FIXED (The Same).
So For Example:
Lets say that the Flight that your wife is travelling on, American Airlines Flight 1234, crashes, and as a result, your wife dies in the plane crash. Now, if you were to go back in time and attempt to change the outcome of this event (Your Wife’s Death), and instead book a different flight for your wife, Delta Airlines Flight 5678, as per the Fixed Outcome Theory, the Delta Airlines Flight 5678 will crash, and your wife still dies. As you can see, the outcome always remains constant; in this case, your wife dies not matter what variable you change. Your wife can cancel the ticket, and she’ll still die at the exact moment/time that she’s suppose to die. Nothing you do can change that outcome.
And there you have it, The Fixed Outcome Theory.
Let me know your thoughts and feelings about this theory.
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
