… including the time-travel paradoxes.

As long as you put time-travel into a story, you mix the meta-time and the original time within that story. Thus time-travel paradoxes appear.

Looper

Looper is a 2012 American science fiction action film written and directed by Rian Johnson. The film stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Emily Blunt.

— Wikipedia on Looper (film)

If everyone just looks out for themselves, you just get this perpetual loop of everybody pointing fingers, and everybody blaming each other, and everybody killing each other. And it takes an act of selflessness to maybe break that.

Memory 4.2

Copy Me, 5

這段改編自 2010 年 4 月 3 日的對話。

怎樣才為之「同一個人」,或者「同一個自我」呢?

洛克(John Locke)的標準是,有同一個記憶,就為之同一個自我。

但是,即使是同一個人的記憶,又會隨時間 變形、增刪、篡改。如果用洛克的標準,我們平時所講「同一個人」之中的「同一」,只是幻覺。即使是「同一」個人,其實「自我」亦在不斷變化之中。例如,「十年前的我」和「現在的我」,並不是完全相同的「同一個人」。
