This is something I've thought about for a long time...

 

 

What if, when time reaches a certain point, time loops back again to another point in time and everything starts from there until it then reaches that same point in time and loops back again infinitely?

 

Let's say that when I turn 20 in 2015, time loops back to 1995 when I was born, and then continues to do that forever. That's a wierd thought.

This could even happen tommorow, and it could loop us back to the creation of the universe again. We would never get to see what the human race could possibly accomplish. Everything would just start over again.

 

People would have to relive all the good - and the bad moments of their lives. You could argue that this would be a bad thing or a good thing.

 

 

Just a little philosophy for y'all...

 

Let me know what you think!

Could this sort of thing even happen? No one really knows. Some of the people who work with quantum mechanics and physics are theorizing on this subject if I am not mistaken.

A temporal causality loop, or predestination paradox, more commonly referred to as a causality loop, is a theoretical phenomenon, which is said to occur when a chain of cause-effect events is circular. For instance, if event A causes event B, and event B causes event C, and event C causes event A, then these events are said to be in a causality loop.

This reminds me of this paradox I found not long ago while searching for paradoxes.

 

 

 

 

The grandfather paradox is a proposed paradox of time travel first described (in this exact form) by the science fiction writer René Barjavel in his 1943 book Le Voyageur Imprudent (Future Times Three).[1] The paradox is described as following: the time traveler went back in time to the time when his grandfather had not married yet. At that time, the time traveler kills his grandfather, and therefore, the time traveler is never born when he was meant to be.

The grandfather paradox has been used to argue that backwards time travel must be impossible. However, a number of hypotheses have been postulated to avoid the paradox, such as the idea that the past is unchangeable, so the grandfather must have already survived the attempted killing (as stated earlier); or the time traveller creates - or joins - an alternate timeline or parallel universe in which the traveler was never born. There is also another theory that if you go back in time and kill your grandfather, the moment he dies, you die as well because it would mean that you were never born. A paradox is not necessary in this kind of situation. You die, but the past changes, and brings about whatever effects possible.

If time loops were real then life wouldn't server to much of a purpose. :(

If we wanted to prevent a time loop we would need to figure out how to time travel, but first we would need to find out if time loops are real.

As we are talking about a theoretical event time could be a constant . There is no need to have events in a loop because they are constantly happening in their own place meaning it is your perception that places you in any such event. Scientists have proven time travel is possible thats why they have to update the satellites they use for sat navs its different in relation to where you are not whats happening. Its the human body thats the restrictions to doing this there are billions of particles going through us and the earth every second and yet you dont feel them and yet they are there and that makes sence when you know that atoms are empty space it goes straight through. So when events are percieved they appear fixed but as was said quantun physics are different laws depending on where you are not the event. So using the same theory all things are happening simultaneously just where you stand determines what you see. From our perspective we cant move because we are too heavy once we die and decomposition sets in the atoms change they dont end what we are was made in the stars literally. So this being fact time is everywhere at the same time different things happening but only from your perspective which would also account for the beginning of our universe and the end. Time is constant only atoms vibrate and change depending on where you want to be.

The purpose would change because of your perspective giving you a different realisation would change the purpose of your thought hence a new reality.
