In the Physics of “Dark” – Part 3 the concept of closed time-like curves CTCs will be further explained by considering how physicists since Einstein have understood causality — the nature of cause and effect.

Carter-Penrose diagrams will be introduced and used to highlight how CTCs, time travel and wormholes are consistent with our current understanding of general relativity.

The work reported here contains original insights into how time travel through wormholes for can be represented in spacetime diagrams.

The concept of circular time has arisen in the TV culture of Doctor Who and Star Trek as discussed in the free bonus material below.

In “Dark” the concept of circular time is more advanced than in the examples discussed in the Bonus Material and resemble the physics concept of closed time-like curves CTCs where the future communicates with the past and the past with the future. . CTCs are one of the weirdest concepts in all of physics .– and you thought that dark matter and dark energy were pretty weird.

indeed, the late, great, Stephen Hawking offered the chronology protection conjecture which basically states that CTCs are just too weird. Therefore the universe must have a way of protecting itself from them. Read more here:
