Jess Vs Jess

Jess aims at herself.

A time loop or temporal loop is a common plot device in science fiction (especially in universes where time travel is commonplace) where a certain length of time (such as a few hours, or a few days) repeats over and over. When the time loop "resets", the memories of most characters are reset, and behave as though they're not aware of the loop. The plot is advanced by having one or more central characters retain their memory or become aware of the loop through déjà vu.

Types of Time Loops[]

Physical Time Loop[]

In a physical time loop (rarely seen in the media), the spacetime loops around to form several closed timelike curves. Since the time in that region is looped, a person could escape it only by leaving the affected area. Also, there would be an infinite number of copies of any matter in the area, unless an object left the loop. In that case, there would only be as many copies of that object as many times it completed the loop. This type of time loop cannot be ended or destroyed.

Conscious Time Loop[]

In a conscious time loop, everyone's consciousness loops through time. In such a time loop, causality could easily be violated.
