Time Well Traveled by PhilosophyPony Time Well Traveled by PhilosophyPony
What's this nonsense? A Lyra comic without reference to humans? A time travel comic without reference to Doctor Whooves? Blasphemy!

Ugh. That armor was killer. It's not even that detailed, but still... I'm glad ponies are usually without raiment.

Anyway this is my third Philosopony comic. If you liked this comic, why don't you check out the other two? Here they are: 1) [link], and 2) [link].

This time, I made everything in Flash CS6 except for Lyra's cutie mark. That was made by this fellow: :iconvladimirmacholzraum:.

Oh! And I didn't make the font either. It's this one: [link]

Personally, I think time travel into the past is possible. You travel into the same dimension, only backwards in time and when you reach your destination the universe splits into two different timelines, so that no paradoxes can occur. If you kill you grandfather, you won't be born into this timeline but the one you came from remains unchanged, similar to the multiverse theory. That, or everything blows up.
Amazing comic, just like the previous two.

But of course. Doesn't everyone from a war-torn post-apocalyptic future have at least one artificial limb? ;)

That's an interesting question and viewpoint. I believe that travel into the future (aside from our natural progression) is possible, but past is not. Once a time trip into the past was performed, it would set up an infinite loop, even if the traveller didn't do anything other than immediately return.

That said, I think you broke Philosopony's mind.

I love PhilosophyPony and I love these comics. They're all so - what's the word? - clever. This one's no exception. You have all that dry talk about time travel and its mechanics and implications, and then right the f*ck out of nowhere the very mare she's talking to broke the rules you just set up with the sole intent of proving you wrong. Hilarity.

Thank you very much, and thanks also for bearing with all the dry philosophy to make it to the punch line. :D

That's a very nice comic indeed, I'll surely try to check the others out aswell!

PS, dragging art into the right folder can be tricky with a touchpad :P

LOL! I also think that time travel is impossible because time isn't a dimension. Oh man, I wish I could go back in time to spread some justice and save innocent persons.

But now that Present!Lyra knows that time travel is possible, Future!Lyra can't say "All these years I thought Time Travel was impossible..." without having a Grandfather Paradox...

And that's why I like Time Travel Related Things...

Well, maybe Lyra just suppressed the memory of the traumatic experience of seeing her future self as a crazy peg-legged, one-eyed war-monger.

I heard a curious theory, extraterrestrials are actually humans from the distant future (millions of years), so they are time travelers.

I sure hope not. Besides all the crazy philosophical conundrums of backwards time travel, I find it awfully creepy to think that humans could ever evolve into gray, bulbous-headed abominations.
