Perhaps you are aware that some quantum physicists are theorizing around the possibility of choices made in the present having an effect on the past. The theory is known as retrocausality. Do click on the link if you want to learn more. It's written in plain English by someone who really knows their stuff.
I'm not going to try to explain what is in the article but I want to highlight that they talk about signalling into the past being forbidden and how this is different to making decisions that affect the past.
What fascinates me about retrocausality is that our ancient ancestors seem to have already known about this. Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life which represents all of existence, sits on top of the Well of Wyrd (also known as the Well of Urd / the past).
Sitting by the Well are the three Norns Urdr (past), Verdandi (present) and Skuld (future) signifying that at the deepest level of existence, you find yourself outside the time-space continuum where linear time does not exist.
There are forces unknown to us represented by these Norns (or fates) that draw on the nourishing waters of the Well of Urd and shape our destinies here in Midgård where the second law of thermodynamics make time appear linear.
However, the moisture rising from the Well of Urd falls back from the leaves of Yggdrasil into that same well... Droplets of the future affecting the past... That is something to meditate on, wouldn't you agree?
Have you ever had a feeling of making a choice that rewrote your past? Let me know in the comments!
