The only way it could ever work is if it were like Twilight Histories where you're just punching a hole in spacetime leading to a parallel timeline.

Per multiverse theory, there are infinite parallel universes.  And per Nietzsche, there is infinite recurrence of one universe.

Baruch will correct me of course, but it seems to me in my limited study of philosophers that most, especially during and after the “enlightenment” come from families that are adequately wealthy that they never really needed to work, but spent their time inventing new words to explain things to each other in a battle for supremacy of word entanglement. When crowds used to gather to listen to them, this eventually, due to mass confusion, simply walked away shaking their heads while the philosophers continued their battle of enlightening each other while the public lost interest. This explains why today philosophy classes are attended by people who have no noticeable talent other than pontificating on thoughts nobody else gives a shit about. They assure us they know something but work very hard to make it so we could not understand what they are saying, thus they can claim multiple versions depending on whom they are talking to and each one is different but no one would know.

I bet you write good fan-fiction (nothing wrong with that).  "Newton's Law" by Anderson etc ... was an alternative Newtonian biography.  Can't seem to get to the URL directly, but here is a web review ...

Well, I'm pretty sure conservation laws rule out backward time travel, so we'll never have to worry about it.

Now they have something called time crystals:

https://www.sciencenews.org/article/new-theoretical-type-time-crystal-could-run-without-outside-help

Yeah, read 5 years ago, about German experiments with doped diamonds, for quantum computing.  In crystalline arrays, all sorts of weird stuff happens, that does't happen in all the non-crystalline states (glass, liquid, gas, plasma).  Didn't read back then, this additional application.  Not just continuity, but accurate repetition is very desired.  A 10x greater stability in an oscillation is ultimately transformative from metrology out to the rest of science and technology.  Because of existing stabile oscillation technology, we can accurately see jumps in the rotation of the Earth due to core motions and earthquakes.

Auto-generated-vibration.  Usually, we take a man made quartz crystal (called a "crystal" in radio) to ensure that the primary frequency of a radio transmitter is stable.  It has to be stimulated from the outside.  Guess this new thing doesn't require outside stimulation.  You still have to deal with entropy either way.

I'll put that down in the "against" column.
