    I seen TV shows where you try to change history. Like the Twilight zone. An episode this guy tried to warn authorities John Wilkes Boothe is gonna kill Lincoln. The cops laughed at him and say the actor John Wilkes Boothe is gonna kill Lincoln? So they arrested the guy for disorderly conduct. Not boothe the guy was warning them. He stayed 2 days in jail and then when Lincoln died they released him told him we should have taken you seriously and he told the cops were boothe was hiding they took him seriously and gotand killed boothe. And then he took a travel to 1939 in Nazi Germany he tried to kill Hitler but there was an Hotel clerk alerted the German authorities and they arrested the guy who tried to kill Hitler. And then he traveled to 1945 warn the Japanese about the Atomic Bomb is gonna kill everybody here. They laughed at him and arrested him then a day later Bomb exploded. Then on Quantum Leap Sam was trying change history prevented Oswald killing JFK but he was unsuccessful at that. You can travel back in time and enjoy it but if you try to change anything you ether gonna get laughed at put in jail and it happens or someone or something will be standing in the way preventing you from changing it. Like I wanna help the South win the war. So America would probably be a better country than it is now.

    He could have time traveled a 2nd time I wonder and made sure he got his point across!!

    Yes you can change history but it might not be good doing so!! (As seen in BTTF for example)

    We wouldn't, of course. Change the past, and the past we remember is the new past.

    Here's how it really works: Time is like a video saved on a hard drive and playing in real time. The entire video is there, past, present, future, but we only see what is playing at the moment.

    If we go back and change something in the video, then save it, there will be two videos, one with the change and one without.

    Say someone went back and warned Kennedy, and his secret service prevented his assassination. Now, there are two realities, one in which Kennedy was killed, and one in which he wasn't.

    How do I know all this?

    Wild speculation and science fiction, of course.
