Time-jump and the consequences of the Butterfly effect.
Do you believe that Andrew Basiago as a whistle blower, and want to know more about time-travel technologies?
No, of course not, and I’m sorry about the question. Nobody can believe the fantasies of Andy and his followers, and let me tell you why.
A country that could go back and forward in time, would be in total control of the whole world.
That country would also be the richest nation on earth and in addition, free from any kind of economical crisis.
Yes, I know that we are talking about the worst science-fiction, but let us go on with this.
The time travel whistleblowers want also the disclosure, so the world can enjoy the possibility of jumping to the past or the future.
Many Christians would love to see Jesus face to face, right? And Jews would love to see how Jehovah helps with the Exodus opening the Red Sea.
"He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left."
Psalm 106 verses 9-11 (c. 1023 B.C.)
I must recognize that this free jumping back in time, would be dangerous for many if not all religions but…there are even worst things that could happen.
Nobody could deny the right of Israel to go back in time and destroy National Socialism in time to prevent the Holocaust, right?
Obviously, Armenia would also time-jump to stop the massacre of 600.000 to 1.800.000 men, women and children by the Ottoman Empire in 1915.
Aboriginal populations of the American continent would demand the same right to jump in time and stop the natives’ genocide in the bloody hands of the European conquerors.
Given that the history of Humanity is a history of blood, crime and abuse. I will not give more samples, but let us see what would happen after those noble and justified expeditions to the past.
We must consider the possibility that the Israel commando would not find any State of Israel.
Many members of the expeditionary would find that they were never unborn.
Armenian perhaps will not be Armenians in the post-jumping world, and we cannot even imagine what kind of America would the Native Americans find (if any.)
Of course we need to talk about the Butterfly Effect: In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state. The name of the effect, coined by Edward Lorenz, is derived from the theoretical example of a hurricane's formation being contingent on whether or not a distant butterfly had flapped its wings several weeks before.
Although the butterfly effect may appear to be an esoteric and unlikely behavior, it is exhibited by very simple systems: for example, a ball placed at the crest of a hill may roll into any of several valleys depending on, among other things, slight differences in initial position.
The butterfly effect is a common trope in fiction when presenting scenarios involving time travel and with hypotheses where one storyline diverges at the moment of a seemingly minor event resulting in two significantly different outcomes.
