comment Why was the wormhole placed near Saturn in Interstellar?
While not downright forbidden, remember that there's absolutely no need to put the movie title into the question title.

comment Is Nolan citing Borges?
Well, a first short google trip shows that you're at least not the only one to draw that connection, yet it remains unclear if Nolan did so, too. But he seems to much more directly admit Borges' influence on Inception, which at least shows he's definitely not new to him.

comment Was Gargantua not a “real” Black Hole?
@AndrewMartin Not entirely sure, I'll take a more detailed look at the question once I'm through Thorne's book.

comment Who are “they” in Interstellar?
As to the last bold part, that seems utterly incorrect. The movie makes it pretty clear that Cooper didn't change anything at all. A "wave of repercussions" would exactly have been the nonsensical crap seen in many other time-travel related movies. But this was in fact not shown at all. All he did had already been done, that's the whole point of this scene.

comment Why does time flow differently on Miller's planet?
Though, as to your last paragraph, I don't think the wormhole had any significantly big time-dilating effect, it doesn't seem to have that much huge gravitation at all. The huge time difference between Cooper and Murph was primarily due to Gargantua alone, as detailed in this related answer.

comment How did Cooper send the quantum data?
I think the implication actually was, that the data isn't too complex (however realistic that is is a different question), since she really just decoded a small bit from the watch (we see her write it on paper) and then run out and scream "eureka!". The rest of her lifetime wasn't dedicated to decoding it, but to finalizing Brand's equations and for humanity to use it for building and lifting those space stations (which didn't happen on a day either).

Oh, in this case you have indeed. Those were two entirely different things.

comment Why was the wormhole placed near Saturn in Interstellar?
"Well, it had on the other side" - Wait (have you changed/deleted a comment or was this always the comment and I misread it the first time?), this sounds like you're saying the time dilation came from the wormhole (or I might just be misinterpreting the comment). But it didn't, it was the black hole on the other side of the wormhole. The only possibility would by gravity/time-dilation from the black hole leaking through the wormhole, but I'm not sure that's what you're saying with that comment.
