The other night, I had a kinda weird dream about a time loop. The current theory on how those might work is described here .

So, try not to laugh, and don't think this is an April Fools thing. The dream came thru as a Back to the Future thing, focused on Doc Brown. In the story, Doc Brown is the real motivator for all actions that movie follows. He creates the time machine, he sells the plutonium to the Libyans and he fixes what he breaks. He closed the loop (or maybe he opened it) and allowed Marty to escape. And he remembers it all.

So what came into my head was that he was kinda crazy because he was parsing the experiences of two universes. One is the closed bubble of the time loop (actually several of them, if you count all three movies), and the open universe which continues on when those bubbles separate and/or collapse. Imagine experiencing several lives, having several memory tracks for different lives, each slightly different for crucial moments, and having to figure out which one you are currently in? It would explain his craziness.
