      or just wait until the winning lottery is announced and market prices have changed then change the past so you benefit from all of that,

      In the past, you can make the future not exist, even if you poke someone. Poking someone can have effects, so eventually they may just go insane and call nuclear warfare and collaborate with very dangerous states, killing everybody except for these guys, and those who live get to suffer eternal pain from them. Before seeing the future, befriend the person who gives out the lottery tickets. See the future, and you can easily tell them that you want a certain number to be printed. Profit.

      Would you see yourself winning? You can't change the future, you can only see it. So you would see yourself either winning or losing the lottery, then you would win or lose no matter what you did to try to change it.

      for the last time, the government did not cause 9/11. 1st of all, if they blew up the twin towers, how come no one grew suspicious of any drilling noises from people trying to put in supposedly advanced ACs. 2nd of all, one of building 7's tenants was the FBI; do you think the government would be willing to destroy their files especially the important ones just to have an excuse to invade iraq for oil?

      That depends on how much you see though. You could see yourself when you die, and then you would know how you would pass away, when and where. So you could come to terms with that and make the most out of what you time you have left. No worries at all

I wouldn't want to take the risk of changing all we've ever know against the possibility to change what hasn't happened yet. Also the question is wether it's possible for you to change what you see.

    I think changing the past is a lot smarter since if you can see into the future what if you see your own death? You'll obviously try to prevent but that's probably how your gonna end up dying since you can't really change what's supposed to happen in the future.
