I hate Time Travel

So, if you travel forward in time and kill yourself.... Exactly what would happen?

the universe would explode?

or maybe it would make a runtime error and crash. Same thing. :-p

but, since the universe isn't a computer and therefore doesn't really care about inconsistancy... you would succeed. You would kill yourself and then you would live until you met that moment again and were killed by yourself. Either that, or you would live a fragmented life where the ends never really meet.

I like this little conversation with yourself.

maybe time and chronology isn't as important as we think it is....

I don't see how this is a dilemma. I can see the paradox arising from travelling back in time and killing yourself, but I'd think going the other way would be kosher. Assuming future time travel is possible in our hypothetical reality.

I'd say it's impossible to accomplish because your future self will be expecting it, having been there from your point of view already and knowing how everything will go down. You can attempt it, but unless your future self wishes to die, you will be stopped.

U could go forward, kill ur future self, then go back to become ur future self and die, and that would just be the ned of u. But I don't think u could go forward, kill ur future self and just take over from there, 'cause then there wouldn't be any future self to be killed, 'cause they wouldn't have lived to that moment...
It gets confusing. That's why it's fun to think about time travel.
