What if you time travel and meet yourself?

Recommended Posts

What if you time travel backwards of some decades and meet yourself younger? I don't really know what I would do. I would probably stare at myself for quite some time and then I would realize that I shouldn't attaract a lot of attention and just move on else I would create a temporal paradox. What about you guys?

Depends how much younger we’re talking here. I tend to think I wouldn’t want to interfere with the timeline either, but it would be difficult to resist the urge to give my younger self the advice she desperately needed to hear, or to impart what little wisdom I’ve gained. (Or to tell her “You see that guy? Yeah, that one. He might look good right now, but somewhere out there, someone is sick of his shit, so avoid him like the plague, k?” :P ) It probably wouldn’t help much because she’d end up making different mistakes anyway, and there’s nothing one can do to prevent that. That’s life. So I think I’d just move on as well.

I would be very careful with what I say or do because I could erase myself from this world with one little "hiccup".

 

 

Other than that I would just remain silent for a bit, I'd be really amazed by the situation.

I would tell her countless advices so she wouldn't make the mistakes I did. I'd tell her tomake the right choices and get her priorities straight. But of course, I'm not regretting anything because I wouldn't be as strong as I am now without those mistakes being done. :)

I would not think my younger self would know me or believe me, and would try and give guidance so he does not make bad choices or mistakes which could cause him to have problems in life. I would try and, see if the other me trusts me or wants to talk to me and would be friendly and hang out with him for the time I am there and try and change his course if it is heading in the wrong side. I, reckon that going back in time can have changes or cause things to happen which can be good or bad and would need to be careful as well

As @FuZyOn said, its best to be careful with what to say. I would just avoid the meeting no matter what. The thing is, science has proved matter can't exist in two places at the same time. If you go back a little back in time, chances are that you both have almost the same body, hence the same matter. It would cause an unlikely paradox.

If you could travel back in time in order to manipulate your own life, you could easily do it in such a way that you would never have to meet yourself.

If the doppleganger effect wouldn't work, I would probably help myself get through the school bullies and give an advice about future life. Probably i would also get some of the Lotto numbers from 2015 and gave them to myself.

Money, without a plan for that money would probably not be useful. The vast, VAST majority of people who win the lottery do not have a happier life afterwards. I would only go back and cheat with sports betting or the lottery if I had a solid plan for what to do with the money... otherwise, history (ha) has shown me enough to know that random large sums of money go unexpected people just is not as good as you think it would be.

I personally would not mess with any version of myself, younger or older. I would not want to create some strange paradox. There are things in my past that I would love to change, but they made me who I am today. I gotta tell you though, I LOVE the lotto idea.

Oh belive me, i would know how to take care of this money :D

 

 

Anyway, if I could explore the past in this scenario after giving me advice, i would totaly be in different places to gain som knowledge about the history of my city or something like this.

Oh it's very possible that already happened several decades ago....

I would be very careful with anything I would say to myself since I tend to overthink what other people say to me. What I tell myself might make different decisions I made and change the course of my life. I would just give her advice specially those that I thought I needed then.Or maybe I would just watch her from afar and see how I was from a different point of view.
