Makes me think....

Post by melissa052 on Tue Apr 05, 2011 4:18 pm

One of my RPs on twitter is Doctor Who but (Almost) completely Alternate Universe...

The current plot has the Doctor (Me, playing Time Lord Victorious) and Rose (Taken over completely by the Bad Wolf, Bad Wolf Victorious) are expecting a son... Only thing is the child is in the most literal way, a paradox... His adult self is back to protect his unborn self from an impending threat...

In order to stop his dad from being Time Lord Victorious and Bad Wolf Victorious, he made 10 believe he'd kill both Rose and the unborn son (10/Rose have no clue he's their son)

Anyways... This makes me think... If you travel in time and kill your past or future self, either accidentally or on purpose, would it be murder or suicide?

And don't ask me to simplify the plot, please... It's confusing to put into words, we just know the direction, to be honest!

Suicide, definitely. Not only are you killing a form of yourself, you're killing your current self. If he kills his younger version, he'll never grow up to be the future dude, so he'll just like vanish.

Good point for the current killing past self.

But current killing future is, in a way, a whole new concept... The current self lives on afterward... And they might not know they're killing them self!

Oh, well I'd still say suicide. You're still ending your own life, just a little down the road.

Ah, very true...

I have to say, that would be an interesting way to commit suicide... Possibly not even knowing what you're doing when you do it...

Quick question. How would you even be able to kill your past/future self at all?

If you kill yourself in the past, you don't have a future. Therefor you can't go back in time to kill yourself because you don't exist. It's completely insane to even consider such a thing.

But you also can't kill your future self either. Unless you are a complete idiot. See if I had to resort to killing a future self then I would continue my life and know that at some point I went back in time so that I would eventually die.

Which means that I would simply not go back in time and or just avoid my past self.

There for, only the stupid would end up killing your future self.

Yup.

or something. Made complete sense in my head. But the more I think about it the more. well the more my brain hurts by trying to solve the issues that go with time travel. o.O

Wow... Unit! I don't think I have ever been so confused in my life! MY brain hurts trying to process what you just said and I'm an expert on time travel... Or... ah... So I love to think...
