Anticipating the new film by Christopher Nolan, “Tenet”?
Try the Tenets of the Grandmother Principle in Summer of Love and The Gilded Age.
I renamed the traditional “Grandfather Principle” as “Grandmother”. The principle works with either grandparent. Why did I do it?
As a feminist statement. And as homage to my beloved maternal grandmother, Mary.
In Nolan’s film, Tenet is the name of the somewhat shadowy organization in the future managing time travel projects to the past.
Forthwith, here are the Tenets developed by MY shadowy organization in the future managing time travel projects to the past
Tenets of the Grandmother Principle
[Developed for tachyportation projects approved by
the Luxon Institute for Superluminal Applications]
Tenet One:  You cannot kill any of your lineal ancestors prior to his or her historical death.
Tenet Two:  You cannot prevent the death of any of your lineal ancestors.
Tenet Three:  You cannot affect any person in the past, including aiding, abetting, coercing, deceiving, deterring, killing, or saving him or her (except as authorized by the project directors).
Tenet Four:  You cannot affect the world in the past.
Tenet Five:  You cannot reveal your identity as a time traveler to any person in the past, including yourself.
Tenet Six:  You cannot reveal the future of any person in the past, including yourself.
Tenet Seven:  You cannot apply modern technologies to past events or people, except when the result conforms to the Archives and, in that case, you cannot leave evidence of modern technologies in the past.
The CTL Peril:  You are capable of dying in the past, including your personal past. If this occurs, the project is transformed from an Open Time Loop (OTL) to a Closed Time Loop (CTL).
You cannot escape a CTL.
So there you have it, my friends.
