Was bored at work today and this popped into my head for some reason. Imagine you invented a time machine in your living room. As time is linear and if you went forward or back in time the machine would stay in the same poition where your living room would be at any point in time . It's well known you can't just visit a particular point as the machine doesn't move only time does . Now imagine if you went forward and there was a nuclear war and a bomb exploded near your house would you die at the point when you passed that time when the bomb went off or would you simply just pass by it and continue to your chosen date?? I'm thinking you'd die as you'd be at that point at which the bomb went off and you'd die the same as everyone else. Dunno why I thought of that I just did .
