looking at all the threads on ancient history, and all the unanswered questions about what went on when with which civilization, i ask this.
if you could travel back in time, where would you go? who would you see? to what time period?

if i could go back, i'd want to get to the ancient library of alexandria, before the fire, and read every tale, every description of civilizations before then.
hanging out by the mediterranean reading old books, sounds fine to me.

I'd go back to the Roman Empire. Using my knowledge of modern concepts and technology I'd become an integral part of the Emperors court. Then I'd probably have him assassinated and take over myself. With my knowledge of history I could avoid the mistakes made previously..
And then The Empire may never have fallen and the Falco Dynasty would gain the rightful place in history it deserves!


Or maybe I'd just hang out, get wasted, and take in an orgy or two.. tongue.gif

I would go back and see if Atlantis really existed.

One night I ventured to my wooden rocking chair right outside my back porch, and I looked to the sky in the break of twilight, staring into the dark mirror of space, filled with sands of star dust, colossal supernovas and red giants, strings of wormholes and distant planets beyond my grasp. A place where tiny enigmatic hidden black holes tear through the fabric of space and time which, who knows; may lead into other dimensions and perhaps alternate realities. And as I look up at this heavens mirror which my hands can only reach so far through this looking glass, I felt an odd sensation of something looking back staring into my own eyes, staring into a whole other universe of which I new nothing about until I saw my reflection within it, and in that moment I then knew that the key which open the portal doors to parallel worlds was myself.    "The Eyes of the Universe, Chris Landrum"

I would go back and back all the time coz their is soooooo much to seeeeee but the three top choices would br to go back to ancient Egypt to observe what their civilsation was like and to see hoe they built those bloody pyrsamids. Number 2 would be going back to see the mayan,incan and aztec civilisations in their "classic period" and finally to see if atlantis existed.

Also checking out the very first humans would be cool, seeing if jesus really walked the earth, babylon, middle ages, ice age, etc.......There is just so much to see. Lets never forget their is no future without a past!!! thumbsup.gif

But you'd have to be very careful about what you did, or else you'd most definately change history. That would mean no killing, destroying, sex or anything. Heck, you couldn't even touch anything.
For example, going back to the time of the Aztecs. Just standing there would infect the people with all the bacteria you'd be carrying around, since there were no diseases before European contact. That would make many, many people sick and possibly wipe out the Aztecs prematurely.  sad.gif

That's depending on whether you care if you change history or not. I definitely think parts of it could use some serious re-vamping for the greater good..
