    Because Inquiring minds want to know...

    Ok lets just say my mind wandered into one of those crazy subject places again.


    I was looking at an adult comic today and the premise was about son goes back in time and meets his mother. Son has relationship with mother while there and she does not realize it is her son. Son may or may not realize the woman is his mother. Then just to add a bit of challenge to the scenario presume it's at the same point in time when the son was conceived.


    Granted it could be son and mother, father and daughter or any combination of them. Now the point of the thread is not the sexual taboo's or such but the psychological realization of discovering you've created yourself.


    What do you do when you realize you went back in time and conceived yourself?

    That comic writer must have watched Predestination. It's a pretty spot on simple version of the sci fi movie.

    That's all I got. If you watch the movie and can follow it, Satan bless you.

    To be honest, I think I would probably spend an inordinately long time in the toilet.

    I don't even know where to go with that... Wouldn't it be some sort of paradox?

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    And if not, maybe it should be.

    As a former wiccan who still celebrates the wheel of the year, this is nothing out of the ordinary. I guess the worst that could happen is I'd develop a God complex.

    夕方に急なにわか雨は「夕立」と呼ばれるなら、なぜ朝ににわか雨は「朝立ち」と呼ばれないの? ^^If a sudden rain shower in the evening is referred to as an 'evening stand', then why isn't a shower in the morning called 'morning stand'?

    A paradox was my initial though as well. It never answers how the first conception would have occurred in order to go back and conceive yourself. Yet it still ties in with the notion of being conceived then going back in time and killing your father type scenario. If you go back and kill him how can you be conceived? So if you go back to conceive yourself how can you be conceived in the first place in order to do it.

    About the only way I could imagine it, and that very iffy, is in some capacity all time is present. Which would first have to suggest that time is not linear but all present at once

    I've got to hear how this ties into the Wheel of the Year concept. The wheel is the young prince basically reborn over and over, this one is going back in time to conceive yourself at the moment of creation.

    Figure a person could claim, and be totally truthful when they claim to have screwed up their future and had a F** up past.
