After seeing @Mulberry 's comment regarding this, it brought up the idea of powerful magic done to affect a specific goal affecting the past retro actively to allow that goal to come to fruition more easily. For example, I’ve done spells and work in the past that conveniently used the channels that were already set up to manifest, while this is commonly accepted as the basics of magic I wonder if there’s anything deeper on the metaphysical or astral plane?
I am keenly aware that this may be a situation of overanalyzing the basics but I live by the idea that no one ever truly “masters” anything and and that revisiting the basics will always improve the higher levels of any discipline.
I think that’s very dangerous though. You have no idea what that would cause. I mean there are tons of movies about it for a reason lol. I usually don’t use movies like that but in this case it’s apt. I think it definitely contributes to this topic though so thank you!
I think merging the memory self is a better idea than a photo of yourself.
If imagination is an issue, you could make physical representations of the process, and visually and audibly merge the two - perhaps using barbarous words.
Okay im sure someone must have already tried this but maybe the past would change if everyones memory of it changed.
Lets say you wish you played a specific game several years ago when you instead put all your time into a different game.
How many people remember that part of your past and which game you actually played? If the number of those people is not too big,change their memory of it all and even your own with memory manipulation magick. Then wait and see if you can find proof it worked.
Even if you must change the memories of your past one person at a time.
