Technically, time travel has always been possible! Linking books allow faster-than-light transportation, which is equivalent to time travel given a certain frame of reference. Of course, writing a new link into the past of your own Age (or rather, a quantum state indistinguishable from it), seems like it would require the kind of extremely fine control that only Yeesha has mastered.

"Zaphod22 quote"
In light of the D'ni's knowledge of quantum theory as the mechanical basis for the "art" of writing “linking books,” it's very interesting that Zandi at the cleft is reading a book about quantum theory / mechanics. I just wouldn't have figured "him" for that.

The Art would transport you across your universe if you happened to Write an Age that existed in the same universe as you. However given the nature of the Great Tree that possibility would be very very very small.

There has always been a factor of time travel when it comes to the Art in the sense that you Link to an Age that could exist 20 million years from now or 20 million years in the past. Of course this would likely be in a separate branch of the tree given my above commentary on the rarity of Linking to an Age that already exists in our universe.

On the cover of Zandi's book it seem it is about multi universes and inside about writing style.

In the film Jonathan Livingston Seagull it said (proposed) that "thought" can be faster than light.

The principle of "being" as opposed to "become" because "is" cannot/should not become and "becoming" cannot be".(eternity opposed to infinity)

Btw, I believe that karma is a quality of infinity. :lol:
