Looper, 5.3

Paradox 5.4 | Meta-time 4.4 | Cumulative concept of time, 13.4 | Two dimensional time 4.3 | 二次元時間 4.3

In a single-mutable-timeline time travel story, the two dimensional time is not due to the internal causal structure of the story. Instead, it is due to the author’s timeline (aka meta-time). The author’s timeline is the second time dimension (aka independent direction).

The single-mutable-timeline model of time travel is not logically consistent within the story. If it is “mutable”, it is not “single”.

The single-mutable-timeline model of time travel is logically consistent only outside the story, from the perspective of the story’s author.
