that is a contradiction because if time travel were impossible to achieve there would be no time hence no universe the mere presence of the Universe means time travel is possible
You're just fucking around with semantics. Sure, we travel through time, but that's not the common definition of time travel.
Also, time travel is not impossible; when one moves incredibly fast, time goes a bit slower, this has been tested with fast jets and atomic watches; time is relative. Also, quarks called tachyons travel back in time, which was one of the things the Large Hadron Collider was built to study. I won't even pretend to know any more of that, I just repeat what I've read.
Anyway, since the universe is confusing as fuck, it's really hard to state any factual statement about anything, no matter what Ms. Rand tries to say via John Galt.
