According to the research published by Irina Arefieva and Igor Volovich, in general relativity, a timelike curve in spacetime will run from past to future.

I'm just going to assume that the guy stepped through a closed timelike loop from an expended Wyoming mine c. 1908 and ended up here.

He was only moving in the timelike dimension (with slight movement in the spacelike dimensions).

Ori's theory is actually a set of mathematical equations describing hypothetical conditions that, if established, could lead to the formation of a time machine, technically known as "closed timelike curves."

More to the point here though, how do you test teleological ideas, where causality goes haywire even inside timelike loops by their very predetermination?

Whatever fieldlike (and timelike, and spacelike) influences there are operating consciousness, it seems quite clear to me that it has to function via physical mechanism at the crossover phasespace.

But I have to keep a very open mind to possibilities such as that the cosmos as a whole in trapped in a closed timelike curve, with the “origin” and “end” of time being the same point.

No, my thinking rathole about the Hubble flow, specifically from the point of view of an observer who sees * this* universe (more precisely, our Hubble volume) in the opposite timelike direction from us, went like this:

By “3+2 dimensional” do you mean that the two interpretations (internal and external) are interpolated by a parameter that behaves like an extra timelike dimension?

Given an initial condition on a timelike hypersurface as a mathematical model for the universe, we can determine in which direction a dynamics (supposed here to be deterministic, whether applied to a quantum or to a classical state) causes the entropy to increase or to decrease.
