Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why?
Hmmm so given the option of getting a new time machine (where are all the old ones?) and having the choice of either only going back in time or only going forwards in time? Which would I chose?
While it is tempting to go back in time and see a lot about our history or even pre-historic times and learn a lot about our past (what really happened at Stonehenge or how did all the dinosaurs all die out or hey are those aliens building the pyramids?) and maybe even kill off a few religious figures before they can do their damage, I think I would pick going forwards to the future.
I wanna see how we progress as a species and evolve. I want to see if we finally get rid of all our negative baggage and build the comfy spaceships that allow us to travel the universe and see what’s out there. If we finally make first contact with other alien races and exchange knowledge and information (and maybe cuisine). How we explore new worlds and make new friends and learn more about the planets and stars.
Yeah baby, let’s go forwards in time. Full speed ahead!
