I wonder if you could relate this to Mage The Awakening: What Haruhi truly believes is "Consensus" (except it's a Consensus of One, since she's the only important figure in this universe)

Just because the future "goes away" does mean the matter that entered the time loop goes away as well. Thus since Mikuru entered the time loop, she's in it, even if the time were she comes from is gone and thus she would "cease to exist".

On a techincal angle, the past ceases to exist as well as the future if they are in a closed loop, no beginning, no ending. If that were the case they all shouldn't exists since they have no past to be born either. Thus the theory that all matter within the closed loop will remain even if said matter shouldn't exist anymore because of the loop. This would be logical if the loop was made from a set period of time that was looped back on itself yet there is still a dimention were time continued as if nothing happened (no loop). Since this must be the case, otherwise Mikuru wouldn't exist in the first place if time did not progress forward in at least one timeline, this must be the truth.

According to Mikuru, time is not fluent.
It's kinda like a flip book. Looks fluent, but actually is just a lot of shots, only in this case these intervals are very very very small.

And so, if you scribble around on one page of the flip book, the next pages won't change.

...On the other hand, Kyon actually questioned this in the first episode of Season 2, because he influenced past Haruhi or something.

The answer?

"Axiomatic set theory offers no proof of its internal antinomies without antinomies."
or, in another translation
"As there is no set conclusion to the paradox theory, there is no way to prove that there is no paradox."

Actually there's no way to verify that the past exists or does not exist, since Haruhi can pretty much create a universe that 'has a past' immediately at any time.

Takamura: Mikuru is either lying or has been told wrong information, because that simply doesn't work given what Kyon experienced.

The third possibility is that what Kyon experienced simply wasn't 'technically" possible, that only occurred because Haruhi was involved.

Look at it another way; from the Cricket incident, Yuki made the point that the SOS-dan room had been altered by the very PRESENCE of Haruhi to the point that outside factors have trouble harming people within it. The room, in effect, is in its own mini-dimension due to contamination of divinity.

All this is just another way of saying "Haruhi Did It". This is of course, not logical, but is none the less a required element we all have to keep in mind.

What Yuki, Itsuki and Mikuru does, follows existing rules of their universe. As such we can analyze their actions in order to test the waters concerning their universe. But the Factor X would always be Haruhi; the rule breaker.

I guess 'contaminant by divinity' is a kind of HaruhiDidIt but I think that on the whole she might need to know about spacetime and/or be actively thinking about it before it happens.

I wonder if Haruhi really does have universe-CREATING powers like we posit for Seitenkan existance purposes.

Spoiler:


It's a boring volume, but Sighs does give us a lot of new theories regarding Haruhi's existence.

So Haruhi may not be the Goddess that everyone believes but that still doesn't explian what Kyon's role in this, is he the real God or is he a slider?

Kyon is the key. He is Haruhi's enabler. He is John Smith. There is nothing more to him than that.

You don't need to have superpowers to be someone special. Power isn't everything.

And this is precisely why I firmly refuse to accept any theories regarding Kyon being anything other than normal. It simply would erase the very foundation his character is based upon.

He's normal, yet the key to everything. He's ordinary, yet Haruhi still loves him.
There's a huge contrast between the crazyness and the fiction and him.
If it were to be revealed that, say, he's god, this would all be meaningless.

I can't deny that the theories have a lot of hints, but I refuse to accept it.

I was just thinking about that the other day, and I suddenly realized why Haruhi drew Kyon to her even though he's a normal human. She's too sensible for her own good (or at least, for her to grant her own stated desires).

Haruhi wants aliens/time travelers/espers/sliders but "knows" that they can't really exist. This led her to the idea that she needs to accept the world as it is. This is not a thought she enjoys and in fact actively opposes, but I'm betting some small part of her wished for someone who could show her that being normal is okay. Thus, we have Kyon.

One of my understandings (yes, I understood that more than one way, one of which, I hope, is the correct one) of that statement is that Kyon exists because Haruhi wants him to. Another is that Kyon's personality exists because Haruhi wishes for it. Yet another is Kyon becomes friends with Haruhi because Haruhi wishes is so. There are a few more thoughts, but that should be enough.

I was going for the third one. Haruhi summoned Kyon because he fit what she subconsciously decided she needs.

You've got it wrong... at least one aspect of it. Haruhi is really interested in "John Smith," who happens to be Kyon... the rest more or less remains the same.

And Itsuki in the movie explains exactly what Kyon's purpose is:

That's pretty much where the key thing came from, yes.
