Subject: saving people from the past

Most of the skeptics are pointing out that we can't (now) recreate each past 
increment of backward time with perfection and so a tiny flaw at any time will 
be magnified the further back we go.  I think that is true -- using the 
technology we can imagine today.

BUT what if future humans work on this in, say, 1,000 years or 100,000 years 
when the technology may be perfect?  I think too many people think about things 
using short term technology and don't have the ability to imagine what humans 
can and will do in many thousands of years from now.

Also, my idea is not to use atoms or any physical matter in the project, but to 
start at the "Starting Time" with the *structure* of all the brains and the 
parts of Earth (and maybe a larger area) that are relevant to humans and then 
use knowledge of cause and effect to figure out what the previous situation was.
We are talking about tiny fractions of a second, the smallest possible piece 
of time as each unit as each section of this project.

Where I think the problem lies, is the question - Is an exact duplicate of you -
you?  If someone could make an exact duplicate of the structure of your brain 
(and so you mind), would that duplicate BE you?

We need at least two things to work to be able to rescue others from the past.
1. Cause and effect reproduction in reverse developed to perfection.
2. A duplicate IS the original to be true.

We know cause and effect does work in the forward mode.
