Yeah but if you don’t know the show us about time travel then you might not interpret it literally

... Why wouldn't you? What other interpretation of "The distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." and then that opening monologue featuring visuals of past, present, and future versions of all the characters is there?

That’s enough. You sound so unsympathetic to other viewpoints, everything is so clear cut and dry for you huh? At that point nobody knows who all those characters are and how they’re related. And the quote just pops up for a few seconds and then disappears. At that point, who knows what the creators’ intention is with that quote. Most people aren’t truly digesting what that means at that point

There's nobody in this thread more unsympathetic to other viewpoints than you OP as evidenced by you constantly moving the goalposts in every conversation, never agreeing with anyone or understanding their viewpoint.

Always saying it must be because they already knew what is was about, or how most people in your 'real life' circle said [x] about it, implying your experiences are more true than those of people commenting here.

There's a reason this thread kinda turned against you and it's completely because of your own reactions

The quote pops up, but we're treated to a two minute monologue narration that goes over time as an illusion again right after while we're looking at an evidence board filled with past present and future versions of a number of people - yarn stringing them all together in a web of unknown connections.

"We trust that time is linear. That it proceeds eternally, uniformly. Into infinity. But the distinction between past, present and future is nothing but an illusion. Yesterday, today and tomorrow are not consecutive, they are connected in a never-ending circle. Everything is connected."

The fact that we don't know who those people are at that point doesn't matter. The narrator told us that we're going to be seeing time travel connected in a never-ending circle (aka a loop).
