Retrocasualty in Time Travel - ... In defiance to the “butterfly effect” – by implying some events are, in a sense, “sterile” from influencing the future – a few theories do just that. In order to justify this “sterility”, multiple time lines are assumed to exist which interact with one another.

For example, if one were to create a time machine, travel back in time and kill Hitler before his rise to power in an effort to save the lives of six million Jews, the Holocaust would nevertheless have to happen—even without Hitler's presence—because in our universe, the events of World War II, including the Holocaust, must take place in order for the United States and the U.S.S.R to become a superpower and use its influence to help create the United Nations, which in turn helped create the modern state of Israel....   [tags: Science ]
