User's Guide to Time Travel

Samuel Baron
Venue: North Ballroom (Large Panel Room)
Tags: Does Not Need Moderator, presentation, Academic
Ends: 18:00

Suppose you travel into the past. In a fit of homicidal rage, you attempt to kill your grandfather before he conceived your mother. Suppose you succeed, and your grandfather dies at your hand. Then you will never be born and you will never travel back in time to kill your grandfather. So your grandfather both lives and dies. Paradox! Suppose, instead you fail. Why do you fail? What is it that stops you from taking your grandfather’s life? If one is unable to kill one’s grandfather, do the paradoxes of time travel therefore threaten one’s free will? Can the paradoxes be avoided by introducing higher temporal dimensions in which grandfathers can be freely killed without consequence? And are we forced to posit a mysterious “logical guardian”, hell bent on ironing out paradoxes wherever they arise? This talk will take you on a multi-dimensional tour of philosophy and time.

Altering our minds with chemicals.
It seems like fandom and substance use (legal or otherwise) go together, like Gin and Tonic. Whether it is a discussion over coffee, or a room party at a convention. Fandom also has higher visibility for prescription medications for mental health (not that that is hard, given it is almost invisible in the wider community).
In an effort to reduce stigma and encourage safety, this panel is not adults only, but parental discretion is advised.
