The thing with time traveling is that you can go back in time, but everything that will happen from that point will create entirely different universe. I mean it will be a different dimension that is parallel to this one, but completely different. Therefore changing the past won't have any effect on this dimension whatsoever, so time traveling is pointless. I thought Keen with it's IQ should have figure that out by himself.

Come on, this is a game. Moreover, a sci-fi game. It doesn't have to be realistic at all :dopekeen

You can't visit other stars in an hour either. No reason to let the laws of physics get in the way of Keen storytelling.

It sounds more like speculation to me. See rest of post below.

Is there proof of this?

I know there's the idea of quantum physics that anything that could happen does happen (as exampled by the Star Trek TNG episode "Parallels"). Thus, any diversion from the current timeline makes a distinct, parallel universe.

However...being that no one in recorded science has actually traveled through time, there's no way we can know for sure it would work that way.

I'm just saying. There's no proof of otherwise either, so everything is theory.
