    What a theme..

    If you were to go back in time and kill yourself then who would go back in time?

    Grandfather Paradox
    This is based on the same principles as the Grandfather paradox and is an accepted variation.
    Say you traveled back in time and killed your grandfather, before he conceived your father. Would you still be born? And if not, how then did you manage to travel back in the first place?

    On the same basis...
    Let us suppose that you built a time machine or found a wormhole and travelled back in time to kill yourself.
    Present: You have picked up the loaded gun and travelled into the past
    Past: Your past version of you has not yet picked up the weapon because he has yet to decide that he will travel back in time and kill himself

    Let us suppose that PRESENT you does shoot PAST you - if that were the case then who travelled back in time? because you were dead and never picked up the gun or considered it at that point.

    Next stop The Twilight Zone lol Twilight Zone intro <---just for fun

    The whole terminator franchise is based on the time paradox. In 2029 there is a war between the evil Skynet and the humans. The humans are winning and Skynet sends a terminator back in time to kill the mother of the human leader (making it the time paradox)

    Cracking my whip


    This was an attempt using negatives and shapes.

    PHP Code:
    The rest is filters and layering

    I used the negative to express the opposite. The mishmash of shapes to create the picture questions whether the picture is a random collection of slides or a picture as a whole. I got the inspiration from googling 'paradox artwork'.To be honest there is no definite explanation for this sig but it mainly comes from my imagination of a paradox. More art rather than science.

    I like to think I bring the modern art to our sigging community.

    I would also like to add this was the technical fastest siggy I ever made.

    Purple to blue and no stock is genius like the other guize.

    Also proof of paradox:

    Zeno’s Paradoxes

    Zeno’s most popular paradox runs something like this, suppose you want to cross the room, first you have to walk halfway across, then you have to cross half the remaining distance, then half the remaining distance, and so on. There are, eventually an infinite number of distances you have to cross to get across the room, and this is impossible to do in a finite time, therefore, all motion is impossible.

    The resolution of this paradox does not require calculus, It is only necessary to point out that Zeno has assumed that the distance across the room is infinitely divisible, but not infinitely extended. Therefore the time required to cross it must also be infinitely divisible, and it is not required that the time be infinitely extended. Whether space or time are actually infinitely divisible may be a problem in modern physics, but that’s way over Poor old Zeno’s head.
