->"So there's this man. [[Series/DoctorWho He has a time machine. Up and down history he goes, zip zip zip zip zip, getting into scrapes.]] Another thing he has is a passion for the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. And one day he thinks, 'What's the point of having a time machine if you don't get to meet your heroes?' So off he goes to 18th-century Germany. But he can't find Beethoven anywhere. No-one's heard of him, not even his family have any idea who the time traveler is talking about. Beethoven literally doesn't exist. (This didn't happen, by the way. I've met Beethoven. Nice chap. Very intense. Loved an arm-wrestle.) No, this is called 'The Bootstrap Paradox'. Google it. The time traveller panics, he can't bear the thought of a world without the music of Beethoven. Luckily he'd brought all his Beethoven sheet music for Ludwig to sign. So he copies out all the concertos and the symphonies... and he gets them published. [[YouWillBeBeethoven He becomes Beethoven.]] And history continues with barely a feather ruffled. But my question is this. Who put those notes and phrases together? Who really composed Beethoven's 5th? -->'''[[Series/DoctorWho The Twelvth Doctor]] explains it perfectly in episode 9x04, "Before The Flood" [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/DoctorWhoS35E4BeforeTheFlood]]'''

->The idea here is that you can travel back in time, but you can't actually change history. So if you go back and try to prevent the assassination of [[WilliamMcKinley President McKinley]], it turns out that you killed him yourself. Or if you go back and try and prevent the Black Plague, it turns out that ''you'' are a [[TomatoInTheMirror flea-ridden diseased rat]].
