Time travel experiments
The time travel experiments is a ways of showing that we are more than what we are at this moment. Many people believe that what they are in terms of consciousness is what they are now at this point in their life. But if all that we are is what we experience now then we do not exist in the future or the past. But we do believe that we did exist in the past and will hopefully exist into the future. When we do a time travel experiment we imagine traveling into the future or the past and observe ourselves in this time period. When we do we see ourselves but do not experience what these other version of us are experiencing. How can someone else be us if they do not experience what we are experiencing at this moment? Is this not the definition of us?
The point of these theoretical time travel experiments is not to show that time travel is possible but that there can be versions of you that exist at the same time as you and you would not experience what they do nor would they experience what you are. You could lead your whole life and never know that they exist at all. You might have memories about some of these previous experiences but memories are not very accurate or complete. What you remember happening could be very different from reality.
If we ran the functioning backwards in your body to a previous point in your life, would you have the consciousness and ixperiencitness that you had at that previous point in your life? If the functioning in your body then ran forward again exactly as it had in the past would you experience exactly what you experienced in the past up to the present. But if you ran the functioning of the body differently than it actually had would the consciousness produced by the body be different? Would you have new memories and loose the old ones? This process could be repeated as often as desired each time with new matter in a different place and time.The consciousness would be different if the functioning was different enough but would the ixperiencitness be the same?
