(??:??)pwnz2much: strictly speaking, it shouldn't be possible, given what pwnz1 and i know of this timeline
(??:??)pwnz2much: by our calculations, the only chronological agent that should be able to influence pwnz0's attitude like that is himself
(??:??)pwnz2much: but for that to happen, he'd need time powers already...
(12:37)Admiral Pancake: What if he... warmed up to us in the future, and then decided it would be advantageous if we started working together earlier?
(??:??)pwnz1ng: thatd DEFANITELY fork the timeline
(??:??)pwnz2much: exactly. pwnz0 voluntarily working with you was never in your relative future... but then something in his past happened to change that
(??:??)pwnz2much: pwnz0's present (from his perspective, the future from yours) attitude changing cant cause his past (your present) to change, or his future attitude would never have changed in your present
(??:??)pwnz1ng: now, there COULD have been going to be a timeline fork... like, if we will engineer a situations that forces him to work with uss, he could have been going to have changed his mind in his past/your... future but lses futre
(??:??)pwnz1ng: but idont even need to do the math 2 say that's irreconciable
(??:??)pwnz1ng: and we know taht dindt happen because a fork'd change ur temporal coordinates
(??:??)pwnz1ng: and then u'd lost contact with us, which isnt happen
(12:40)Admiral Pancake: ...right. Frankly, it amazes me that you can keep all this in your head.
