I wish I could comprehend this better. Being a Possibilitarian, I am willing to consider many possibiities, but my vast ignorance is a drawback!

In a small way I can relate this to very old theories of akashic records
I dream, therefore I am.

History repeating itself? That's a strong belief in Jewish thought, past incidents are sought out to learn better how to deal with a 'new' situation.
Of course, it's like a spiral, not a circular groove where events are identical. But like the seasons return, each is new and different, just similar.

I don't know if that applies to the theory presented here? I don't think so.
The block universe theory, where time travel is possible but time passing is an illusion
I dream, therefore I am.
