Do you believe that our future has already happened? Since time keeps moving forward at high rates of speed, i think we are all stuck in our own little timeline. For instance, you are born on feb. 22 1989 in one timeline (the life you are living now). Then somewhere in the future you are also living multiple lives. Since time is infinite, and moves faster than the speed of light, we have no way of catching up to our other lives we actually have in our future. With this being said, my point is that, the only way to catch up to our future is to travel at the speed of light or faster, and if we could we could see our future.
Time is only related to the speed of light, we as humans just make up our own time scales (seconds, minutes, weeks , years etc.).
If this is the case, are we as humans eternal? Do we all share the same energy and matter in some way.
Take a person from 2045, he/she could actually be you, just in a different timeline.

huh? We move through time, not the other way around, and we move through time at exactly the speed of light (when we are not moving through space).
But the other point is right, I think (we can't catch up with our future selves, skipping stuff in between, without traveling faster than light), but I don't think it makes any sense at all to begin with. It's like saying that you'll catch up with yourself in Africa- time is like space.
Still, interesting stuff. "Time traveling" to the future is quite possible just by taking advantage of relativity, but it wouldn't be "your future" in the sense you are talking about. Now, if the universe were really a multiverse of the variety where there are multiple you's in different space-time locations, then what you're describing would be no harder than jumping between universes. That would be interesting..."I was put on trial twice near Y2K for acting like Jesus and claiming to be the Messiah. Its not everyday that a man parks a Chariot of Fire in front of a tomb and stands against the US government with a bow and razor tipped arrows over his shoulder. I wore a suit of armor and was protected by an invisible bubble and my sharp tongue was more than the judicial system could handle."Jake

Each person is not the same from moment to moment physically, and also mentally. Your cells are renewed, your body changes, and so does your mind. What we really are, we as individuals, are focuses in the greater entity. Think of it like an ocean, and individuals illuminated spots which change as waves pass by. No wave, no action, no life. But when a wave passes, water rises, you are alive. Considering that there is more than one wave, then each light spot will be alive more than once.

What you're talking about is two of the same persons existing in separate timelines. This doesn't work without a multiverse, and a multiverse can't be proved. Did I mention paradox? Now, according to relativistic velocity theory under Einstein, you can witness your own past (not the future) if you can some how travel 2x the speed of light and collect the data elsewhere. Meaning, if you launched on a rocket from earth at 2x light-speed, you could set up and watch yourself leave the planet because you traveled to the observational point faster than it takes the light information to reach you. What? Hurts my brain too.
Did I mention paradox? Time travel is impossible.
