If I were to travel back in time say for example twenty years and murder myself what would happen?

1. Because cells (or the atoms in cells) constantly regenerate or change over time I wouldn't be murdering 'me' exactly.

2. If I murder myself I wouldn't be able to travel back in time later to commit the murder.

Please help me out of my confuzzlement :?

Thank you

You cannot murder yourself, displaced suicide maybe.

but what if the time travel frazzled his brain and he did not recognise himself.
An incident then occurred where past self upset future self, so future self decided to plan and orchestrate the death of past self .

Surely this is then murder :?

good shit here

seems it cant be done and even if you did it wouldnt matter

The writers of Doctor Who solved this conundrum aeons ago....

In time travel it is not possible to actually meet yourself or holes will open up in the fabric of time itself, causing the universe to implode in a great cataclism.

Or summat.

But If I had a time machine also...I could go back in time to when he had the zinn and just before he went back in time
