@nubereight Possibly, however for us to be aware of the people in the future's ability to time travel there would need to be a future in the first place. It is possible that our present is the farthest point in time, that there is no "future" besides a hypothetical one.

WRONG. 0) You want to travel instantly in the four-dimensional space-time-continuum. Traveling in time while remaining at the same spot would let you discover about the speed of the earth in space and about what happens if it's not close enough to stand upon. In other words: You`d most likely end up in empty space.
1) The only kind of universe where the time of time-travelling does not matter is a record-like universe: If you travel back 2 minutes, it`s like being in a movie and the user just rewinded these 2 minutes. You won`t even know it happened - except if you`re Deadpool.
2) Just to prove (1), think about Dr. Who where he exactly times his time-travel to trap the weeping angles.
