In other words, ‘The Terminator’ scenario would not be possible because it would create an unresolvable paradox.”

“The Terminator” scenario, of course, is one in which someone from the future sets in motion the events of the past. In the original film, the futuristic John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect his mother before he is born. Reese ends up fathering John Connor. Time is a loop.

I prefer a universe without time paradoxes.
