How does time prevents itself from changing?

We know that time is immovable in the world of KH you cannot rewrite events fated to happen this kinda gives us some space to work with it solves the time travel paradox since any interference in the past changes the future. Everybody that was brought to the present has to go back eventually to thier own timelines to relive thier fated events for a while. However the matter of fact still remains that you can tempororarily pick them up. So how does time preserve it in the maintime of the target's abscence? I
Does time in the past continue to flow even after you've picked them up if so? What if time actually flows different from the point in past from where you picked up your target temporarily till the the next point in time in which an event is fated to happen?

Yes what if that actually determines how long a past version can stay in the present for example.

Young Xehanort picks up Ansem Sod around the time he first possesed riku. At that time sora was still busy fighing in hollow bastion. Let's assume it took sora an hour to get to the upper level of hollow bastion and fights rikunort at the keyhole of hollow bastion. This would mean that Ansem Sod has an one hour timer in the present time before he returns to the past.

I think this mechanic is very plausible. I mean you cannot just freeze time in the past and expect the present to follow through it makes no sense. Things in the past need to have happend to make the present work.

Or what if time has an temporarily back-up drive that in which it can remember the original chain of events for a short while before it notices that something is amiss. For Example Young Xehanort picks up Xemnas as a nobody.

The part concering the events of xemnas now exist as data/memory. Time uses dat memory to recreate the normal chain of events following xemnas's actions so basicaly even though Xemnas is not there in the past temporarily everything after xemnas phenoma flows normal based on a temporarily back memory. This is why Sora still remembers that he killed xemnas. Even though the very same Xemnas is standing infront of him. This is riku can still experience the aftermath of Ansem Sod's interference due to the events of KH1.

What do you guys think? What are your thoughts?

It seems it's actually as simple as this: time in the past "freezes" for the time traveller no matter how much time they spend out of their time. Once they return or are forcibly returned, they will be sent back to the same point they had exited their time through.

Long story short, seen from the past's time frame, no amount of time passes between the points of exit and entry.

how is present still able to go on if time in the past freezes then? Espically since kh doesn't really follow the alternate timeline theory. If time freezed in the past then logicall the present should have a frozen time aswell. By that logic we wouldn't evem be playing KH ddd but simply look at a frozen game. If time is indeed frozen then time should have some kind of back up mechanic that allows the present to be unaffected and flow as if the past still did happen besides the past bieng frozen.

The word "freeze" was not meant to be interpreted literally, hence the quotation marks. The simple fact is that, as I said, upon returning, the time traveller will re-enter their time at the exactly same point where they exited; from there, they will continue with their life as though nothing has happened, thus giving the impression that time in the past has "frozen".

Its actually more like from the pasts perspective they never left. When someone is taken out of time they go back to the exact point they left from when they return meaning from the past point of view they were never gone.

Why would this be the case? When they return to their own time, they go back to when they were picked up in the first place. There's no seam; it's as if they never left to begin with.

I'm honestly having trouble wrapping my head around the concept that the past would keep moving in the absence of someone. Like, why would that be the case? We are travelling through time​, after all.
