Our current understanding is -
We arose from the ashes of the '94 mounties, Ascender as the primary instigator of the 2010s Mountaineers.
Without those ashes, we can most likely assume that we wouldn't exist.
So by helping the '94 Mounties, we presumably cease to exist. But if we never existed, then we never helped them. So they did become "ashes" and we do exist. But then we help them again and so on and so forth.
We have no clue what repercussions will come from helping them. It's best to at least find out what will happen, before we do it. Because based on my understanding of time, what I described above will occur.
And what I described above is a paradox.
(Just bringing this point over here for it's discussion.)
