--------------------------------Xehanort: The real Organization XIII.
Riku: The Organization?
Xehanort: I am Xehanort from the most distant past. My future self gave me a
task--to visit the splintered versions of myself in many worlds, and ensure
they gathered here today.
Riku: From the past?
Xehanort: There are restrictions to movement through time. First, you must
leave your body behind to do it. Then, there must be a version of you waiting
at the destination. Upon arrival, you can only move forward as per the laws
of time. And you cannot rewrite the events that are destined to happen.
Riku: What have you done?
Xehanort: My most future self will arrive soon. Then, time for all of us
will return to normal...
(He raises his hand up to the highest throne, where a smoky figure is slowly
Xehanort: ...and I will go back to my era to live the life fate has in store.
He can vouch for that.
Notice the bold part of the dialogue quote from the vid there. This scene is the second of YX's explanations about how his time travel works and what the Xehanorts plans are up till now.
Now an important fact to keep in mind here is that the source of Ansem, YX, and all the others means of time travel comes from MX himself:
MX granted the ability, Ansem used it, and YX was the one told to make use of this power to gather the others.— What about Xemnas and Ansem, essentially they weren’t inside anyone, was it due to circumstances of the worlds of sleep?
Nomura: First off, when Young Xehanort made contact with the Brown Robed Figure, that is to say, the Xehanort who called himself Ansem, his abilities were transferred to him. As a result of Master Xehanort tossing his physical body, he was able to exceed time, and this power was carried into the Brown Robed Figure. Thus when Young Xehanort made contact with him, he gained this power. Possessing this power. Young Xehanort functioned as a “portal”, summoning Xemnas and Ansem each time they appeared. That’s why Young Xehanort was there whenever they appeared. Additionally, when Sora and Riku dropped into the worlds of sleep, simultaneously Young Xehanort himself goes into the world of sleep.
This is a very important factor because it means what is allowing them to time travel is MX's state of incompletion were his heart is divided from his original old body.
Yes I know Ansem was the catalyst for using this power but MX is the source.
YX goes over his explanation of the time travel quite clearly despite everyones' confusion. But let's focus on the main rule:
"First, you must leave your body behind to do it."
(here's a more detailed thread on time travel if your confused so far: http://forums.khinsider.com/kingdom-hearts-iii/198272-perhaps-time-travel-isnt-too-concrete.html)
And going by what I just showed you the body in question for this was MX. Yet doesn't this poke a hole in his scheme? MX returned as a complete person in DDD, he says so himself, so what does this mean that "time for all of us will return to normal"?
Does it mean that now that MX is whole again the others will return to their natural flows of time and eras? They all do share the same heart with MX and relied on his incomplete state to time travel after all.
But if thats the case what will MX do for KH3? If the flow of time was returned to normal for everyone after he returned then what will he do to summon them back?
Does this explain Xigbar's remark:
For unknown reasons they only had a limited time frame and then all of them disappeared yet there didn't seem to be no time frame prior when YX, Ansem and Xemnas was stalking Sora & Riku through DDD.Xigbar said:What now, you old coot? Our time is up!
Could it be that MX's return as a whole being undone the power to travel time and then limited their stay?
What do you think? Does this raise questions for you? Does it seem like bored over analyzing? Or maybe this raises your hopes time travel wont reappear in KH3?
