Effective Quantum Time Travel

The quantum teleportation protocol can be used to probabilistically simulate a quantum circuit with backward-in-time connections. This allows us to analyze some conceptual problems of time travel in the context of physically realizable situations, to realize encrypted measurements of future states for which the decryption key becomes available only after the state is created, and to probabilistically realize a multistage quantum state processing within the time needed to complete only one stage. The probabilistic nature of the process resolves any paradox.
Although Charles Bennett does not seem to agree that nonlinear effectively non-unitary D- CTC’s & P-CTCs  will enhance computer power beyond even that of linear unitary quantum computers - I am not convinced that Bennett et-al are correct.
There are several possible approaches to post-quantum generalization of orthodox quantum theory
1) effective “single Novikov consistent world" P-CTC using Aharonov post-selection realizable in lab in real experiments
2) Antony Valentini’s sub-quantum non-equilibrium
