    "surviving" or "undestroyed" in this case. Things are being blotted out wholesale.

    Or are they?

    Drugs/hallucinogens are not extant then? They are not extant! So extant is the opposite of extinct?

    Don't be silly. I certainly regret it. If I could go back, I would definitely not let myself fall.

    I would have gone with "in existence", but "surviving" works.

    The pyramids are extant evidence of ancient engineering. The evidence exists and can be examined.
    There is no extant evidence that aliens built the pyramids.

    I sometimes think I'm still on the slopes of Mt. Etna, tripping my ass off. It's a very good explanation for all of this.

    I have done a lot of work with documents regarding the Antebellum United States Navy, and my writing goes archaic without let or leave.

    Have you fallen down some stairs? DO you regret it?

    I'm sure you'd agree falling down some stairs is wrong. You're supposed to walk down them.

    Depends on whether I'm the pusher or the pushee.

    But my question is this? Has that happened and do you truly regret it?

    No, your question is: where is the evil in falling down a flight of stairs?

    Well it's certainly wrong. The purpose of stairs is to be walked.

    My argument: anyone who reverses time has commited a crime. It's because that's the only way to do such a thing. That's the only way one can wish to undo an action. ☺

    What crime is committed by reversing time?

    The only way to reverse time is to commit a crime?
    Does every crime committed reverse time? Or just certain ones?
    If you tell me what crime it is, can I commit it and go back to the Cretaceous Era?

    What's the only way?

    Are you literally saying that the only kind of action one can regret is an action that is criminal?

    Again. I really regret falling down the stairs. I'd undo it if I could. What crime have I committed?

    You must either TRULY not regret it, or it was not criminal. As I wrote, the only way to reverse time is to regret something, which must include intent, planning. Falling down some stairs is not a crime. ☺

    You keep saying this, but don't support it.

    I fell down the stairs. I regret it.
    This invalidates your assertion.

    I regret not taking that job. If I'd taken it, I'd be rich and famous now. Not a crime.

    How does regretting something enable the act of reversing time? Do you clap your hands, close your eyes and really believe, and poof you're in the Cretaceous?
    Correct. Thus falsifying your assertion that only crimes can be regretted.

    Only crimes can be reversed.

    Yes you simply regret something and you're in the middle-ages. ☺
