I think i would go back in time to 6 months ago, and kick myself in the ass for thinking blonde was a good color for me. whistling2.gif  THEN, maybe i'd go visit Napolean and laugh at him for being short. tongue.gif

Far future , I definitly want to see what is going on then . It will probobly be amazing , Something tells me beyond imagination ! grin2.gif

But I unfortunatly probobly never will ... sad.gif  sad.gif  crying.gif  

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

I love "today"!  I don't think life is perfact, but remember that Yesterday is gone and Tommorow might never come! (read that in booklet published by the Golden Dawn)

Near future.
Then I would be able to see my children all grown up and families of their own. And hopefully I will still be around able to enjoy it all.  wink2.gif Also I'm the type of Mommy who wants my children not to be scared or embarrased of their PSI potential, so I am empowering them to be open (within the family) and not to bury their possibilities. I just wanna know that by doing this that I'm not damning them for the world out there that doesn't understand and will condemn because my children are "sensitive". Also there are a lot of hard things to deal with when you are sensitive and people are usually so mean in their thoughts. It's sometimes easier to shut out and shut down then it is to hear it. But if life was easy then none of us would learn, so who knows. . . . A parent always wants her children to have a better life and a better meaning then them. . . . .  

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

I don't know why anyone would want to go into the future. It would be well scary. Even to go to a point in your life to see yourself would probably screw you up, because the chances are your life won't have turned out how you had expected or hoped.

To go further on than that would really freak me out. I saw a documentary about this guy who had an accident and lost all his memories from the age of 17 to the date of the accident, when he was about 50 I guess. To him, it was like he'd been in a coma for that amount of time, and he really couldn't cope with the technological advances that had occured in that relatively short space of time. His wife was taking him home from the hospital and their car seemed completely alien to him, with electric windows, central locking, streamlining, etc. And he couldn't believe how his life had turned out, even though he was just an average guy with a loving wife and some kids. He was gutted with his lot.

The present does me fine. However, I would like to see around 2 or 3000 years ago, in the Neolithic period. I grew up in a town next to Stonehenge so I've always been fascinated by that. I reckon it would have been really dark and brutal, with tribal divisions and massive superstitions. Cool. Or being a knight in medieval times would, of course, be great.

I need to make a correction-I meant 2 or 3000 BC, not 2 or 3000 years ago blink.gif

Depends can we return from the time that we choose?. That would have a big effect on my choice.

I'd want to go to the near future, just to see how much has changed since now.

For the last time, no means yes.

Sometimes I think I've gone too far. Then I turn on the T.V.

Posted 19 December 2003 - 01:20 AM

I would be too scared to go to 1 million ad unless I had complete control of the time machine.  That I could see how everything was going and if it was bad I could come back. What if the sun supernova'd or something?  


I've got a bad feeling about this!

I would like to go in the past about 200 years. It is prior to the industrial revolution, so the air and waters and ground are clean. I would also like to spend time with the Cheyenne in North America during that time period.

The Cheyenne nation is cool cool.gif
