This is a thought experiment in time travel and political sciences, what would you need to do to actually get troops to manifest in the past from the future, do you think? Let's say you are in the present and you wanted as your future self to send troops back to yourself for some goal like to conquer the world, how would you go about doing that? Could you actually paradox a self fulling prophecy(https://en.wikipedia...illing_prophecy) scenario like that with a time travel device? It seems all you would need to do is secure victory over the world until the time travel device was created then send back the troops to conquer the world that then secure victory over and over again using those troops in a closed time-like curve. , but if that were the case why have my troops from the future not already come from the future to conquer this world? Does that in itself means either A) I am missing something or B ) that time travel to the past is impossible.
