Fast asleep when your door opens and someone walks inside. First, you are sure it is someone you reside with needing to grab something so you stay silent trying to return to slumberland. Next, you awake to find that they are still there and they're going through your closet space. You watch as they desperately try to find something, and according to their frantic nature, something important. They suddenly turn around to see your staring back at them. This is when you realize that the person bears a striking resemblance to you. They know you as their past self. You and your future self end up in a stare down that you find to be unbreakable no matter how hard you try. You are conscience for the most part as are they, but time isn't moving forward nor is it moving backward. It is just sort of frozen. You and your future self are more or less dead yet you are still alive. You are unaware if this is some sort of afterlife as you feel as if you have just died, but at the same time, you also feel alive and normal except for the feeling of uneasiness due to the stranger in front of you.

If time travel exists, could this actually happen? Because this scenario has been freaking me out for quite some time.

I have never time traveled, but I think that if someone were to travel in time, then the act of traveling in time would create two separate dimensions, therefore any actions you did in the past, wouldn't influence the previous dimension but would influence time in that dimension.

Perhaps the universe doesn't change dimensions but the traveller has their own "relative" dimension which exists only from their position of observation. So when they travel back and alter something, they themselves "shift" universes to the one where what they did is true.

I think I agree with you, since the past or what we know as the past is already fixed in space time, then having multiple dimensions exist, and having a split, one where a change happened and then one where it didn't. Therefore, thinking of it that way, it would be impossible to change the course of history or influence events in a dimension where those events are fixed in space time, but rather you would change it in a different dimension where it's predetermined that you would influence those events.

I think that explains why time travels haven't influenced events in this dimension.
