Hey dreamers and schemers,

I was wondering (I do that a lot) if you had the power to time travel which way would you go? Would you go into the future to see how things turn out or would you go into the past?

If you answer the past, what specific times or events would you visit?

For myself, I would definately go into the past. I would want to find the truth of history.

First stop, Jesus. I would camp outside his tomb for three days. Then I might go back 33 years and keep an eye on him mum for 9 months or so. Immaculate Conception? We'll see about that.

How about you?
I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

Provided I could get back to the present time, I would go back to the past. And that's because I would like to not only document, but warn others of the 9/11/2001 attacks.

Walkman, you would go back and warn of the 9/11 attacks? You would save 3000 lives.

You wouldn't go back and warn about Pearl Harbour? Or warn the Jews about their imminent extermination? Or warn the Russians about Stalin? Or so many other calamities. Your choice is interesting.

But in any event when I did my original post, I had in mind an invisible observer travelling through time. Someone who could hear and see anything but could not affect the outcome.

All of those times you mentioned, I would go back to. But I chose that time because it's very personal to me, and it was un-called for.

I would have indeed gone back to any of those times you mentioned. In fact, now that you mention it, I would go back to when they illegally passed the:

Federal Reserve
IRS
Women's Liberation
Census Bureau
..... and the assassination on JFK.

ohhh. I can think of many time zones I'd go back to. My 1st post was a pluck from the air.

Wakman,

I have been reading your other posts. I can see where you are coming from and think I have a good idea about your main areas of interest.

I happen to share your interests in what are commonly termed "conspiracy theories". This is often a term applied when people don't want to believe that something so amazing could be happening under their very noses.

I would choose the past because I would want to know the truth.

Eep! I'm quite sure I mis-read the "Women's Liberation", Walkman! :thumbsup:

I'd like to travel back prior to the mid 1850s and 'meet' my relatives in other countries - and then zip back further to see the true history of Wales, Scotland etc. Mind one, I'd have to spend a lifetime just time travelling because I'm fascinated with nearly every part of our history back to the beginning of mankind's first civilization.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Post no#16 should shed some light on the question as to the Women's Liberation.

My past was tough/rough enough. I'd move forward, hopeful that we all had
learned from my past era already. I'd like to see how much my family, friends, etc, had progressed.

Sorry, I can't seem to find the reference to 'Women's Liberation' at the link (Corporation Vs Self Employed, Tax question).

I'm with Maram, I'd like to go back into the past and meet my ancestors in Italy and Spain, Michael Angelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Christopher Columbus, Julius Ceasar, Ohh! Ancient Egypt etc. Good grief I could go on & on & on.

Will Rogers - the quote is from 1935, but one will have great difficulty in finding it anywhere.
I found it in notes my father had taken while listening to one of Will Rogers impromptu speeches.
