Particles annihilation in time travel fiction and in New Vision book series


time travel particles annihilation

When we treat about time travel we can of course have no certitudes about anything we make up in fiction! Everything could be right or wong but even though that's the case, science fiction writers have over time developed some codes. Just like in any fictional topic, time travel has its dos and donts its favorite paths and plots and today in this article I will talk about particles annihilation.

So what's that? We are not aftually talking about the particles physics process where particles annihilation is the process that occurs when a subatomic particle collides with its respective antiparticle to produce other particles, such as an electron colliding with a positron to produce two photons. The total energy and momentum of the initial pair are conserved in the process and distributed among a set of other particles in the final state. Antiparticles have exactly opposite additive quantum numbers from particles, so the sums of all quantum numbers of such an original pair are zero. Hence, any set of particles may be produced whose total quantum numbers are also zero as long as conservation of energy and conservation of momentum are obeyed

During a low-energy annihilation, photon production is favored, since these particles have no mass. High-energy particle colliders produce annihilations where a wide variety of exotic heavy particles are created.

The word "annihilation" takes use informally for the interaction of two particles that are not mutual antiparticles – not charge conjugate. Some quantum numbers may then not sum to zero in the initial state, but conserve with the same totals in the final state. An example is the "annihilation" of a high-energy electron antineutrino with an electron to produce a W−
If the annihilating particles are composite, such as mesons or baryons, then several different particles are typically produced in the final state.

No we are not actually talking about this but we are definitely talking about particles annihlation in the snese that they disappear, they cease to exist. 

In time travel fiction we typically encounter that kind of event when for example in Back to the Future an event occured preventing our existence. Still in Back to the Future Marty's parents not dating will prevent his birth and existence so the existence of Marty in any dimension is at stake. 

Many different fictions treating about time travel choose to make this an important part of the plot or not, it is the case of Back to the Future that has its whole plot around this and some episodes of Doctor Who TV series also used it and of course this is also part of the main plot of the Terminator franchise. If you have ideas about other movies or books where particles annihilation is an important part of the plot then don't hesitate to comment below this article!

In the New Vision book series, when experiment are ran afyer time travel is mastered you can notice the tests the spatio-temporal department is running about particles annihilation in "7 parallels".

                     Here is the "7 parallels" extract : 

Saturday August 9th, 2111, Hawthorne, California former territory of the United States, North America, premises of New Vision, formerly owned by SpaceX.

Experiment n°56: Experiment aiming to know the possibilities of annihilation of the existence of particles. The test is carried out on an object and on a living being.

Live test: Description of the experiment: Mating of two rabbits to obtain a litter of young rabbits. These rabbits will then be manipulated for time travel and the butterfly effect will thus be tested on their continued existence or not.

Beginning of the experiment: Mating of the male rabbit and the female rabbit carried out on Saturday June 20, 2111. Result: successful fertilization of the female, the female gives birth on Monday July 27, 2111 to six young rabbits, two white, one black, one brown , a black-spotted white and a brown-spotted white.

Today Saturday August 9th: A member of the research center takes the brown-spotted white rabbit with him into an individual transfer platform, they go to the past, the day when the mating of his parents is planned, therefore, Saturday, June 20th, 2111.

In reality A where the parents mate, the member of the research center will make a modification. Reality A will therefore be altered, the mating of the rabbits will not take place, in order to observe the consequences on the lives of the rabbits existing in reality A. The researcher therefore prevents the coupling and returns with the rabbit on Saturday August 9th, 2111, which this time becomes the second reality. Arriving in reality bis, on Saturday August 9th, 2111, the researcher notes that the white rabbit with brown spots, taken with him, is in good health and is not affected by the alteration of reality A. On the other hand, all the rest of the scope is non-existent. We can therefore conclude: A living being traveling in a reality other than the altered reality, does not suffer annihilation or any damage if it left reality A before its alteration.

Test on object: Description of the experiment: Thursday, August 5th, 2111 A member of the New Vision research center paints a picture on a canvas of 60cm X 40 cm. Then, the same day, he painted another on a 60cm X 90cm painting.

Today August 9th, 2111, he takes with him in the individual transfer platform the canvas of 60cm X 40 cm. He goes, with the canvas therefore, in the past on Thursday August 5 before he paints the two paintings, there, instead of painting them, he tears the two canvases in order to make them unusable. He thus creates a second reality where his action of painting in reality A is altered, prevented.

This action thus creates a second reality where the paintings are torn and not painted. Our researcher still has the 60 cm by 40 cm canvas that he had painted in reality A and that he took with him to reality bis. The researcher and the canvas return to the individual transfer platform to return to their present, therefore August 9th, 2111. The researcher observes the two canvases, which are not painted but torn, while the one he took away and which he still holds in his hand is painted and has not been touched by the alteration of reality A.

We can therefore conclude: an object traveling in a reality other than the altered reality does not suffer annihilation or any damage if it left reality A before its alteration. The conclusion of this experiment is that both living and object react in the same way to the alteration of their reality."

From New Vision - 7 parallels

in New Vision book series, I chose to not make particles annihilation a problem if the subject concerned left his own reality. You will notice that this will be important for New Vision members like Bobby Hutton as he succeeds on the mission to annihilate triangular trade and slavery from the people of the African continent as when he gets back to Oakland California, nothing is ever like before for him as descendant of African slaves that actually in this new reality never got onto the American continent, he would cease to exist if New Vision had followed Back to the Future's take on this. But instead as Bobby Hutton recruited by Martin Talyor to leave on the 7 parallels mission as he was away from his reality which is reality A, never got impacted by the butterfly effect of the 7 parallels project.
