Second Helping Time Paradox-Solved?
Some of you may remember the time travel paradox I talked about in one of my first posts. Well I have been beating my head against this problem and I think I might have a solution, but whoa Nelly, it's a doozy. Now it stands to reason that there is a smallest possible unit of time, otherwise how would they add up the"obvious" passage of time we live in? Now lets say we compare each 'moment' to a 2d cartoon frame. IN old school 2d animation, before Flash and tweening and all that jazz, each frame was technically a different character, each one an individual, full formed, and isolated. Without time. But if we display them at a rate of speed, we get the illusion of time, of a moving character. Now what if each moment, not a new universe forming, for that would still beg questions on the conservation of matter and energy, no, what if, these universes 'already' exist, one for each quantum moment, one for each possible quantum moment. That’s right, I am suggesting that for each possible moment a separate universe exists, full formed, but without 'time'. Of course this, like the traditional many worlds theory, begs the question, why do we experience this? Okay, I'll have to ask some scientist or someone about that one, or maybe God. But still ,this idea, which I have a good feeling someone has already thought of, answers the double serving of ice cream question, it says that the ice cream is a different ice cream, it comes from a different quantum moment, made of technically different atoms then the one from the more recent past. That’s why you can eat it twice, it comes from a different "frame".
