Any paradox would cause the destruction of the part of time-space affected by the paradox.
For example, if you travel back to kill your grandfather, you yourself will disappear.
History erases all traces of your existence, and the death would be caused by another reason.
Therefore, from the historical viewpoint, the paradox never occurs.

Ship of Theseus
You can replace any individual part of a ship, and it is still the same ship.
So, you can replace them all, one at a time, and it is still the same ship.
However, you can also take all the original parts and assemble them into a ship.
That, too, is the same ship that you began with.
description: In the distant future, something slips - reality shifts, time becomes fluid, and so do the people living in it.

Destruction Resolution was originally written and posted here.
I actually have a lot of things to say about this piece but I don't want to bore you all with the details and/or give things away I haven't yet posted, but by the time all 7 parts are done, I will probably compile a little list of thoughts on writing this! Feedback and concrit are always welcome.
