LM now exists outside of his original timestream completely, which is why BM is deteriorating in the first place: Paradox is destroying him. He no longer HAS a past.

He's somewhat shielded from this due to the odd mechanics of time planes, his status as a time traveler, and his own will to survive.

If BM somehow moves to the main universe, he, too, will no longer exist in his original timestream... and be a distinct individual completely separate from his younger self, now bound to the timeline of the main universe.

This will STOP the deterioration, though it will not reverse it.

Does this make some kind of sense? I can change it if need be.

Sort of, actually: BM even makes this point: Suzumiya is Anti-Causality itself. (Of course, that's assuming that what happened was the doing of a Suzumiya in the first place.)

Although, really, I don't have to pay attention to causality because of the nature of visual novels. I'll leave it up to you guys to figure out what that means. It's always nice to justify things, though.

Hmm? How so?
