We just killed Nozdormu

We did literally. May I remind that Nozdormu's full name is Nozdormu the Timeless. If one is timeless they exist outside of time. There can be no future or past version of oneself. Thus, Nozdormu has just commited suicide. Murozond was Nozdormu. Murozond can't be the future version of Nozdormu, because Nozdormu is timeless. We killed him. We killed Nozdormu. We have killed the aspect of time, literally. LF new aspect of time. Wait a second, didn't Nozdormu help us fight Murozond. That's the problem, we killed him, but we also didn't. But we still killed him. Nozdormu is both dead and alive. He is timeless, so he does not lose his living self to the past. He keeps it. This also means that he was always dead, since he cannot lose apart of himself to the future. So he is dead, but he is also alive. He has staged an attack on time, and he has staged the defense of time. He orchestrated his own death succesfully, yet he survived. What is the point of this post. I just wanted people to know this. It's very weird.

Murozond was Nozdormu.


Brilliant deduction, Watson!

Don't hurt yourself thinking about it. Whatever point in time we progress to naturally when we killed Murozond, Nozdormu goes splat randomly.

He already has Anachronos as his designated successor, anyway. When you know the moment of your demise it's kind of easy to plan this kind of thing.

Do I detect a hint of time-machine car-in that anagram?

Yes, hes stuck in an unending cycle of his own death and success.

Being a time lord isn't all about seeing dead celebrities and extinct species.

But doesn't he need to be in a box, Daxx?

I'm not so sure... it all sounds too wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...

I'm just going to say it right now, Schrödinger's Cat was the most needlessly elaborate proof of a concept ever. Silly Geiger counters and vaguely described death contraptions. And it was a hypothetical proof anyway!

Actually, this is even more complex than Shroedinger's paradox.

No, only the OP is more complex - the situation itself isn't... too much...

The thesis for Schrödinger's cat was that if you hypothetically locked a cat in a box that had a geiger counter in it that was hooked up to some undescribed 'death contraption' that would trigger and kill the cat if the counter detected radiation, until you looked inside the box you would not know if the cat was alive or dead, therefore, it is both alive and dead at the same time.

A much simpler explanation is 'Until you know, it's all answers', but I guess Schrödinger just had a thing about hypothetically killing cats.

Well, you see, time is a series of boxes.

That only counts for your' perspective. If the cat died, the cat is dead, whether or not you think so.

At least, I think so. I'm not a major in philosophy, or time paradoxes.
