(First, this quote seems to touch it well;
"You can never 'travel' beyond the Here! Now! in any 'direction'."
IF that is true, that ends the sweet notion of 'time travel' right there!)
(Of course I can only define it as I use it...)
Like in the movies, generally, some machine that one can climb into (or whatever 'Technological Device' (tm)) and be suddenly transported (ala 'The Time Machine') to other moments, other Perspectives, another dream... physically.
(Always after the easy fix, the magic pill... Self is already Universal!! Easier to get the illusions than do the 'work' of such 'Self Realization'... that's why the movies are so popular)
It certainly APPEARS that all is in motion in the movies, but every 'moment' already exists, statically (single cell of film), and the appearance of 'motion' is only an artifact of Perspective/Consciousness.
Not sure what you're assuming by stating every moment exists,
The assumption is the existence of every moment, Here! Now!
however our ideas of what is condidered time travel don't see eye to eye.
You asked me for my
'Aging' is not something that we 'do', it is due to numerous Perspectives of One and the same Thing! From one Perspective, we are a newborn, another Perspective, synchronously, is that one sees a wizened old man...
All the same Self! All the same (superimposed) Here! Now!
Biological clocks are intrinsic to the genetic nature of our DNA, the speed of the process is contingent on the rate of decay of each cell at a sub-atomic level. This means there will always be a correlation between speed and gravity vs the rate at which change will occur.
All hypotheses to explain the illusion.
Do you understand (how I explained the appearance of 'ageing' from) the Holistic Perspective, before repeating your chant?
Not anything, ever 'changes'; walking around the sculpture from many different unique Perspectives does not mean that the sculpture is 'changing' for each unique Perspective of It! You seem to be under that illusion...
The only thing 'different' is Perspective.
So much effort to examine and theorize mirages and 'appearances'.
The illusion of time is the subjects experience of change between two moments.
The illusion of 'time' is used to explain the distance between 'events' ('motion')!
There is no 'time' between moments. (Planck) moments are of non-durational quality, thus all moments of existence strung end to end still = 0!
A (Planck) moment is a single unit of perception, a 'percept' (nothing temporal about it)!
If time itself were an illusion nothing could ever change,
we would not have memories.
Nonsense, we perceive 'Thought' from various Perspectives, providing for ALL thought to be known. Just because you perceive a thought does not mean that it is found beyond the perceived thought. Nor is a 'train of thought' possible in any moment. The 'train' is another echoing appearance of linearity, motion, 'time'...
Thought is never to be believed (by the Wise)! Memories especially!
I can implant memories during simple hypnosis, even without (by 'repetition' for instance, or mentioning the 'fabrication' while you are at a young and vulnerable state, etc...).
A 'memory' is merely another Perspective of Thought. Means little beyond itself.
I recall some science papers awhile ago touting that there is no reason, as far as QM/physics is concerned, why we cannot remember the 'future, and affect the 'past'.
Depending, of course, 'IF' motion/time/space is actually more than an egoic illusion.
Not a 'bad' thing, but mirage, nonetheless.
Of course, taking a stroll down Memory Lane, in a certain way, is 'going backward in time'.
From the right Perspectives, like in the movies, that falling apple will fall up and attach to the branch. The 'falling' of the apple is not a property of the apple, but of Our Perspective/Consciousness!
If it is a matter of Perspective, then;
"For every Perspective, there is an equal and opposite Perspective!" - First Law of Soul Dynamics
And, since 'time' is 'relative' to Perspective, then the 'arrow' must go in ALL directions (in this Singularity)!
According to some quantum models time isn't even necessary,
Then they are the ones to have some credibility, while the 'time believers' fall all over themselves attempting to explain the mirage...
however the macro world doesn't follow quatum laws so it is somewhat irrevelant.
You are mistaken (a common lack of such understanding), recent science headlines have been screaming that, for the first time (very recently);

Jun 10, 2016 - "[T]his convenient partitioning of the world is a myth. Few modern physicists think that classical physics has equal status with quantum mechanics; it is but a useful approximation of a world that is quantum at all scales. Although quantum effects may be harder to see in the macroworld, the reason has nothing ..."
It is schizophrenia to assume that there are two different 'worlds' of any stripe, whether 'micro' vs 'macro', or 'good' vs 'evil', or etc...
One ALL inclusive Truth/Reality/Universe!
Even the causality principle doesn't require a direction of time to understand reality,
That is why 'causality' is an obsolete (impossible) notion/hypothesis, because there is no 'time' for anything to 'happen' (be 'caused).
One mirage 'time' explaining another, 'motion'...
There is no "causality principle";
"'Cause' and 'effect' is a clumsy way to say 'two mutually arising opposite Perspectives, of the same One Event'!"
Reality (without 'time') is Holistic!
...our own conscious ability to remember past events.
There is little evidence to claim that 'past events' don't only exist in your memory.
All 'future' and all 'past' exist in your thoughts/ego.
Our reality is always Here! Now!
A Holistic Reality perceived, at times, in a 'temporal/linear fashion'. *__-
