Time travel fascination

I was and always have been always fascinated with the possibility of time travel. The ability to revisit past events, the thrill of sneaking a peek to a possible future, that always make my imagination going. It is the reason why I always find myself attracted to fictional characters who have this ability or access to machines or artifacts that allows them to travel.

But, is it possible?

If it is possible in my lifetime, would I travel? When? Upstream or downstream? Would I just visit and view passively or interact with my timeline? And what about the possibilities of paradoxes? Exciting isn’t it.

There is a possibility that I had done it, will do it, what the hell I hate tenses when time travel is involved. People claimed (not definite, though) that I was spotted in some place but I am very sure that I was not there. Or I may be there but doing something else entirely. A doppelgänger, maybe. A time travelling self, I like to be.

Fine, fine. I think I am just missing this fictional character that travels in a blue box across time and space. Fantastic!
