Was Doctor Who right?

We are taught from the very early stages of life that time is linear and that cause leads to effect but what if time is a trick? What if Doctor Who is right? What if it is all just a great big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff? Maybe this linear progression thing is all wrong.  Maybe it's not about time progressing but it's about the now.  We experience the reality of now and the memory of the past but we experience it when? Now! We look forward to the future and what it holds but we look forward to it when? Now! It's all about the now! The present is where time lies for all of us.  And here is where the trick occurs. Cause doesn't always lead to effect as scientists have developed the theory of retrocausality. Where the effect can influence the cause! Along with Einstein's "spooky action at a distance" theory, sometimes referred to as quantum entanglement, where one object can have an effect on another object despite being separated by a great distance.  They are joined on the quantum level and on that level, time takes on a whole new meaning. You don't believe me? Ask Schroedinger's Cat. So what am I trying to say with this post? I don't really know other than maybe time is a trick and Doctor Who is a genius!
