Unrelated, but:
A form of the future has to be set for time travel to be possible. When Crono travels to 2300, he sees a future, therefore a future must exist for him to see. Perhaps this is just the result of the likeliest of outcomes being the outcomes assumed by time. Things don't have to go that way, but unless the shadows of these events remain unchanged...

Actually, the Gates were created by the dying planet, which wanted to relive its past. So 2300 AD has to go that way since it already has. Everything Crono does in the game is in the planet's past. The Gates "come from" the planet's present which should be sometime after 2300 AD.

What's weird is that the game says "possibility" and "backup plan". If it were set in stone from that Lavos's perspective, wouldn't the possibility be a certainty and the backup plan a "plan B"?

Simple uncertainty? Lavos saw a future, had no idea how that would come to exist if he was alive, so he concluded that something bad must have happened. Unsure as to what, he did what he could to attempt to radically change the timeline...

Which means that Lavos presumably either doesn't know about TTI, TTI doesn't exist, or he didn't figure the future was the result of Time Travel.
