->"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?

->"One cannot damage history because history cannot be changed. I went back in time to steal this because history says it disappeared. And history says it disappeared because I went back to steal it. Past, present, future. It's all written in stone, my dear, [[YouCantFightFate and nothing you do can ever change it.]]
