Re: Surviving Vulcan Elders.
Forget Vulcan. Again, forget time travel. Think forward.
You are walking by a house. You see a child drowning. You can swim. The gate is open. Do you intervene?
You know that there is a bomb in a building that will go off in three days. Do you warn the authorities?
You're walking next to a blind person who is about to step of a ledge. Do you warn him?
But you can't remove time travel from Spock's issue. In his case, he knows his younger self dealt with those issues. He learned from them and caused him to become the person he became. By doing it himself, he's making it so his younger self can't.
I have existed from the creation of the forum and I shall exist until the last thread is deleted from the server. Although I have taken the form of Awesome Possum, I am all posters as I am no poster and therefore I am a Mod.
