This depends on your culture's reproductive mores; yet the paradoxes of time travel overshadow it all. There is a wide continuum of political positions possible in these matters, of which yours is at one extreme. Paterfamilias: the head of the family has the right to control or dispose of those under his dominion at any age. Infanticide: parents can (or ...

There are 2 questions here. First the easy one. Is there treatment? The 2 symptoms you give are nosebleeds and seizures. There are not many diseases that cause both. A cancer up in the sinuses that infiltrates the brain could cause both but that is kind of a show stopper. A better disease is TTP: thrombotic thrombogenic purpura. https://en.wikipedia.org/...

In general "What tests might someone run that would prove the seizures were linked to time travel?" -- get two cohorts of test subjects (laboratory animals), one of which is the control. Subject one cohort to repeated time travels, and have tests run on both cohorts by someone else (subjects could be numbered, their number assigned randomly to ...

What tests might someone run that would prove the seizures were linked to time travel? Take a large number of animals (test subjects). For example lab rats. Keep half of them (the control animals) in the lab. Send the others on trips through time. Afterwards keep both groups of animals in identical labs. Observe the differences in behaviour between the time ...

The first thing that could be done is prior to any time travel a baseline "health assessment" is conducted to establish the condition the person is in prior to undergoing any time travel. This could be thought of as being similar to pre-employment medical examination that can be used later to establish whether a deleterious change in a person was ...

The standard approach to prove causal link between A and B is to make a double blind experiment: A double blind test is a scientific test in which neither test subjects nor administrators know who is in the control group and who is in the experimental group. The intent is to create an unbiased test environment, ensuring that the results of the testing are ...

The issue with this is one of relativity. Simply put, relativity is the idea that the position and speed of a thing can only ever be determined relative to something else. What that means for your scenario is that when you freeze a thing in time it will not stop moving, because there is no 'fixed' background that it can 'freeze' relative to. It will continue ...

There is a major problem with this approach. To illustrate it, let's say you apply this stasis field to a space station, and you apply it for long enough for the Milky Way to move as far as to place the space station in the diametral opposite point with respect to the starting point. First of all, how long would it take? Since the Milky Way is moving at ...
