That depends, if it's quantum locked 4 seconds ahead of my at the end of the universe then the quantum lock would be destroyed 4 seconds before everything my time thus throwing the win back 4 seconds, just enough time to activate a pre-charged temporal drive back to a safe point in time. Thus I win

But would the quantum lock be destroyed when the object it was locking was destroyed, and if it were destroyed allowing the object to be reverted to a normal time frame would that not indicate the temporal lock didn't exists in the first place as the win would be in two places at once. Which would create a paradox!

See - temporal mechanics - gets you every time.

One can't have a temporal lock where time does not exist, you're right temporal mechanics get you every time, but so does physics

Is it, though? Pikas are fun, after all.
