DWQA QuestionsCategory: MetaphysicsA student asks, “One form of contemplated time travel is my 56-year-old self goes back to 1963 (when he was an infant) to witness the Kennedy assassination first-hand. Maybe as a non-descript 56 year-old man who stands in the sidewalk crowd. If someone snapped a picture of the crowd he was in back then, and stuck it in their scrapbook; and if I returned to today and got ahold of that scrapbook, would I see myself in the photo?”

This would definitely be the case. You are talking here about reality. In all respects, the presence of this individual in the future and then coming from the future back to a time decades ago to be present during a key event, and that presence being recorded contemporaneously on camera, and then returning to the future and acquiring the photographic records of long ago from that vantage point and then seeing the self present on the scene. This is routine business for a time traveler and is exactly what is meant by time travel, that one can do such things with ease.
