There’s ONE way that time travel is possible. And it’s happening every moment, so go with it – The philosophy of: Billy the Kid (in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure)

So time travel (backwards) is a toughie… and one of the reasons is this… But you are always time travelling. Into the future. Just now, your past 3 seconds ago is gone. Forever. And ditto your past 3 seconds ago now. So you’ve got two options: 1) You can pine for …
