The idea of time travel always thrilled me - ever since early 1970s when I read HG Wells' Time Machine, Jack Finney's Time and Again and Robert Heinlein's The Door into Summer. Does it thrill YOU?
And if does, do you want to travel in time? Where and when to, what for? Probably to fix / destroy something / somebody? To alter present and future? To change something related to your family story? Or probably just to take a walk around some World Fair pavilions, to come aboard Graf Zeppelin or Mauretania, to invite Norma Jean for a Martini, to travel in a real Orient Express, to use an elevator that will take you to the top of Singer Building, to enter first BBC television studio in the Crystal Palace?
And if the idea doesn't appeal to you, may I ask why?
Tell me. I'm eager to hear. Share your dreams, dream of something new, ask questions. And don't forget that this network is travelling in time, too.
In the end, as shallow as it may sound, it'd be all about the shopping.
I really would like to know if that constant struggle of mankind on every level will be worth it in the end, somehow, or if we simply cease to exist, unnoticed by the rest of the universe.
Time-travelling to the past would be too dangerous for my taste - Butterfly-Effect and all that; I would only be able to watch without having a chance to interact because of the fear for the consequences of even the tiniest action I take.
Time-travelling to the future, now that's a different story. I really would like to know if that constant struggle of mankind on every level will be worth it in the end, somehow, or if we simply cease to exist, unnoticed by the rest of the universe.
