    I read the book and saw the film (at least, I think I saw the film).

    I did not like either. I saw increasingly lazy writing from Crichton over his career. Or maybe familiarity breeds contempt. I've read every one of his books.

    Yes, and if you interfere with that past a deterministic new you as well, who may never get back to the original U and self. Your own past is destroyed and with it the you, you were, all this time before you traveled "back" in time.

    There are only two ways to travel back in time. Linearly or dimensionally
    But any interference with the past will create a paradox in your present, either way.

    If I change the past, I change myself. Remember the saying; "If I could do it all over again".
    You can't, ever....

    Correct. Once you go there, you can;t get back.

    It's not destroyed; its just not available to you anymore.

    I would be stuck in 1968 (unless I went into cryosleep for 50 years. I would awake in 2018, but it would not be the same 2018 I left).
