I think, if i could go anywhere in time. I would love to see all world landscapes before the last sea level rise ( doggerland, japan connected with asia, sundaland, sahul, circum pontic... ). This is a little stupid i know, but this obsesses me a little.

Im a mythology fan, id love to find out why it took Odysseus 10 years to get home after troy.
Turkey to Greece you could swim in 48 hours ?
Unless it was Britain to spain, like iman wilkens has it,
and what in gods name was a cyclops or a medusa or a sea nymph lol

Well, I wouldn't want to live there or stay for any appreciable length of time, but I'd like to visit Classical Greece, ancient Rome, Renaissance Italy, Elizabethan England, Revolutionary War era America.

I think I would have to agree with halfalp. I think Doggerland and most probably other areas that disappeared at about the same time held many answers to our questions about where we came from.

This is quite funny, but I would go back to the 90s in London for a month.
I would also like to be in the Roman era too and drink wine with them.

I'd go back to the I1-DF29 genesis about 2650 BC. We don't know much about that time and people. I'd also like to see some ancient human and Neanderthal interactions.

hmm

3 eras
3 places,

1 is Pakistan and Indus valley, with Alexander's march,
to see and feel what was going on, and stoped,
maybe Gedrosia, to see who poisoned him and why,

2 Is Napoleonic wars,
just to make them understand that human souls are not like toys to strategical formations of past,
and that tactics were just stupids, bringing unesessary casualties.

3 is the times just before 1821 in my land, mt Olympos and Makedonia
to find out what was happening and they could not reproduce literature, historians and scholars,
and were hidden in mountains.

Sorry to disappoint you guys,
but first I would just turn back few years to meet again my grand parents and other people that are not around.

If i still had a bit of time I would probably like to see the Pyramids of Egypt on their first day - more than the objects, the surprise in the eyes of people. Did they really believe that the Pharaon was a God?

Odysseus
14-11-17, 21:03
I would go back to the 28th century BCE and visit:

1. Egypt to see how king Kufu build the pyramids
2. Crete to see whether King Minos was a real person
3. Uruk to join king Gilgamesh in his quest for immortality
4. Indus Valley and go swim in the 'Great Bath' at Mohenjo-Daro just for fun

https://i.imgur.com/WLMqGnv.jpg

the 3rd millennium BCE was a time where major civilizations started to flourish and prosper , It was also a time when kings , heroes and prophets had close relationships with 'the gods' so it would be interesting to see what that was all about.

The first time I really wanted to go back in time was the early days of Islam, I wanted to see Muhammad, to look him in the eye and see for my self if he was sincere in his belief that he recieved revalation from God, or was he just decieving his people.

I also thought of Jesus, was he real ? was someone even crucified ?

Im with you on that. Besides Jovialis's idea ;) I wouldn't mind going back to the times when these miracles mentioned in religious texts happened. I'll be happy to go back to verify reports of UFO abductions as well, bc I'm one of those "did that really happen" types.

I think Jesus was a chill honest dude who saw the flaws of human nature and just like Buddha wanted to teach people the values of Altruism instead of following the ego , However there are many dangers of becoming altruistic and repressing your inner ego. You cannot find happiness without being selfish.

Which is why I believe the Ancient Greek philosophy of Hedonism was far more superior in terms of self-fulfilment.

You have to define selfish, though. For one selfishness is squandering 200 billion like Putin, or not paying millions in taxes like Trump, for others treating yourself to new cloths or buying a better car could trigger guilt. One can always find a cause to spend money and time for others, just not to be considered selfish.

Angela
14-11-17, 22:06
Actually, I don't see how you can be truly happy if you're really selfish. Your senses might be satisfied, or your ego, but true happiness is for me very different. The times I've been happiest in my life had nothing to do with anything I accomplished or bought or anything like that. It's always been about being with someone I love or more important, seeing someone I deeply love really happy.

Just as one trivial example, what makes you happiest on Christmas morning: your presents, or the joy your children feel when they open their presents?

I would be interested in visiting Bronze Age Europe, but am not sure how happy the residents of the period would be to see me poking around their villages. I would probably change my ticket at the last moment, and instead visit a less remote time and place, like 18th century Philadelphia.

Yes, very different term for different people.

For example, some people like eat super expensive food with real gold which offer some restaurants in Dubai.

Are they selfish? It depends, maybe some of them greatly donate charity organizations.

It is another story if golden food safe for eating (if someone knows?), really gold has neither taste nor nutritional value.

I'd go back four centuries or so to have a chat with my earliest known ancestors. Would take a while though : there were quite a few of them sixteen generations ago.

Then I'd leap another twelve centuries further back to try and solve that lingering Ligurian riddle.

Optionally, I'd go stand on the cliff above Termopylae to watch Leonidas fight the Persians.

Or the man found a nice Trojan wife, stayed there for 10 years, then they started fighting and he went crawling back to his first wife and made up an incredible story to explain the delay. Doesn't make any less sense than stupidly starting a disastrous war by stealing a king's wife.

Of course they believed that their Pharaoh was a God! Why else would so many suffer and die to build a bloated tomb for his afterlife. Most people in the Roman Empire believed that the emperor was a God too. Damn, even the Japanese believed their emperor was a God and died by the millions in WWII just 73 years ago! These were literate, industrialised people. How hard is it to believe that wretched, benighted ancient Egyptians could believe their king was a living God?

There are plenty of "illuminated" even today who try to start their own cult. India and America are particularly fertile grounds for that. Most believe (or come to believe) in what their own mind come up with, but they are usually mentally disturbed.

There is no tangible evidence that Jesus ever existed. The Bible was supposedly composed decades after his death, but the oldest known New Testament are fragments from the late 2nd century, nearly 200 years after the events supposedly took place. The early Christian martyrs like St Peter in Rome are also stories composed by Christians decades or centuries later. I am not sure when is the earliest mention of Christian from non Christian sources. Does anyone know? From what I read even Nero didn't blame the Christians for burning Rome because he didn't know or care about them. It might have been another minority and the Church later rewrote the story to give the impression that pagan Romans persecuted them from the start.

It's a fundamental human urge to want to get attention from others and feel important or special. It's also in human nature to lie. Combine the two and you get miracles and UFOs. Add the credulity of the masses and you can really get yourself something going.

One can always find a cause to spend money and time for others, just not to be considered selfish.Selfishness doesn't have to be about money. I think that what you describe with Putin and Trump is greed, a whole other animal. And feeling bad about buying new clothes or a car is just guilt (but why would people feel it in the first place for using their own money?)

Selfishness would be not wanting to share with a friend something you have and don't need now just because it's yours. It would be choosing to ignore your spouse washing the dishes and watching TV instead even though you are not tired and didn't have a particularly busy day.

It is another story if golden food safe for eating (if someone knows?), really gold has neither taste nor nutritional value.

Gold, like silver and copper (one above the other in the periodic table and with similar properties) are potent bactericides and fungicides. When Americans colonised the Wild West, they would drop a silver coin in their milk jar to prevent it from going bad. Koreans have traditionally used silver cutlery because it was said protects against food poisoning. Copper plays an important role in the immune system to kill bacteria (while zinc is more essential in fighting off viruses). Gold is very neutral for the human body and, in colloidal form, their nanoparticles may improve the connectivity of neurons.

So the bottom line is that eating fine gold leaves could make sense and isn't bad for the body, although in that form it is probably not very effective. The picture you posted is clearly intended as a decoration for haute cuisine. Gold is in fact commonly used for this purpose in French cuisine. It's also used to decorate Belgian pralines. It may look expensive but it's really not. It's just a few milligrams.

To answer the thread's question, I have no idea where I would choose to go. I would want to see everything, but probably wouldn't to live anywhere in the past.

I guess I would be interested to see how some people looked like. It could be famous people before the age of painted portraits, but also how whole ancient ethnic groups looked like, especially before the great population blends of the Bronze Age and Neolithic. What did WHG, EHG, CHG and ENF populations looked like before they mixed with one another?

It would also be interesting to verify the 'facts of history' as history is written by the victors and what really happened may be quite different from the interpretation they passed on to us.

I would like to go to Germany in the 30's to see how the people were persuaded by Hitler. I still find it very difficult to explain.

Another interesting time is when sapiens, neanderthals, denisovans, etc, were all alive and lived in overlapping territories. The thought of another being with a different but not necessarily inferior intelligence is very difficult to apprehend.

I'd also want to see Ancient Greece and Rome, and some of the greatest African kingdoms. They might have been very advanced but we have almost nothing left from them.

They used to give silver to arthritis sufferers (as in rheumatoid arthritis, not old age arthritis) because it was thought it was caused by bacteria. They gave it to both my maternal and paternal grandmothers.

Josephus is an often cited but sometimes controversial source.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus_on_Jesus

The scholarly consensus, not just among "Christian" scholars, is that in some passages he refers to both Jesus and Christians. However, this was written in 93-94 AD, so, about 60 years after the putative death of Jesus. There might conceivably still have been people around who knew him "in the flesh".

Fwiw..."Virtually all New Testament (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Testament) scholars and Near East historians, applying the standard criteria of historical investigation, find that the historicity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity) of Jesus is effectively certain[3] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-Blomberg-3)[4] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-Carrier-4)[5] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-fox-5)[6] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-nobbs-6)[nb 1] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-8)[nb 2] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-10)[nb 3] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-12)[nb 4] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-14)although they differ about the beliefs and teachings of Jesus as well as the accuracy of the details of his life that have been described in the gospels.[nb 5] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-16)[12] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-Hertzog1-17)[nb 6] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-19)[14] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-MAPowell168-20):168–173 While scholars have criticized Jesus scholarship for religious bias and lack of methodological soundness (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_method),[nb 7] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-22) with very few exceptions such critics generally do support the historicity of Jesus and reject the Christ myth theory (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ_myth_theory) that Jesus never existed.[16] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-voorst16-23)[nb 8] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-25)[18] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-Powell1998-26)[19] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-Houlden2003-27)[20] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historicity_of_Jesus#cite_note-VVoorst14-28)".

Probably I’d go to the Pre-Colombian Chinook tribe. The Reservation adopted me as my own, despite my ancestor’s involvement with their downfall. It might be worth checking out and preserving the local heritage through time travel.
Mideval England would be a nice place to stay as well, I can help out on the farm. Sure the clothes are dirty but if the village is rural enough I might be able to wash my clothes at a pond or river. :)

Gettysburg... I’d make sure the 48th Alabama rolled the flank of the 20th Maine to take Little Round Top. With loss of high ground, Yankees would have retreated giving Lee a victory. With a win at Gettysburg, France and England would have recognized the Confederate Govt of Jefferson Davis.
