Science is a highly complex thing; it doesn't have any boundaries or limits. Every time a question was answered, another new question arose from that solution. It is a never-ending process, an answer to a question will be a question to many upcoming answers, and that is how science develops. According to the general English definition, science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence. So, it is not defined or limited and is ever-growing and ever-expanding. There may be many questions that science cannot answer, but they will definitely be answered someday. Some of such questions can even turn down entire human life. One of such great question is, "Can we travel through time?". For thousands of years, one of the greatest dreams of humankind has been "to know their future" or "to change their past". For both of these things to happen, there is only one way, and that is TIME TRAVEL, which is being considered a myth or an impossible event by many scientists. But some of the great scientists believed in time travel. They even proposed some theories and possibilities to travel through time. One such great scientist is Stephen Hawkins; he bought a new life to this topic by bringing some interesting phenomena like "Time Dilation" and "Time Bending" into the light. But these phenomena alone may not help us to achieve complete-time travel. But practically, there are some ways to achieve time travel. Some of these practical ways were clearly mentioned in my previous paper titled "Creating a Scientifical Way to Travel through Time", in which a highly successful way to achieve Time Travel is mentioned. But as mentioned initially, one answer is responsible for many questions. Similarly, many questions related to uncertainties, such as paradoxes, were raised after my solution got published. In this paper, I'll try to explain and answer some questions and propose exciting theories that may solve many questions.
