This comic raises an interesting ethical dilemma. If a person isn't going to remember something painful, is it okay to inflict that pain? To that person, it will be as though the event never happened, so, does it matter what happens during that event? I suppose for a normal situation, the very idea is sociopathic, but what about with time travel?

If you go back in time and change something, and that change causes millions of people to inadvertantly die, is that immoral? What if it's not that they died, but they were never born? Would it be ethical to try to change things back, knowing that your actions will effectively erase the universe of people that exist now? Who has the right to say which timeline "deserves" to exist? Those people whose existence you just erased will never know what you've done, but does that make it somehow okay?
