Fun to ridicule, maybe. Tongue

but ever since becoming a prophet, I can't even pretend to enjoy the concept of time travel*. For one, no matter where you go, it is now. For another, time is not a place, time is a state of flux.

in doctor who ist discribed not as flux but timy wimy wibly wobly stuff

I've got the lottery number for last week now.

Just send me back to last Monday. It will be enough.

Want something? Then do something.

Unless going back in time and telling yourself alters that reality sufficiently that it's not the winning number...

Yeah there's one thing I'd change.

Ridiculous.
Consider After curious consideration ...
I think there are a couple of specific things I might have done differently but it would satisfy nothing in the long run. Although I may not have ended up sitting here writing this, I'm quite certain I would have become the same person.

RE: would you use a time machine to change your past
"would you like to use my time machine to change your past?"

"Sure"

*Uses time machine*

"Would you like to use my time machine to change your past?"

"Sure"

*Uses time machine*

"Would you like to use my time machine to change your past?"

"sure, do you ever get a sense of deja vu sometimes?"

*Uses time machine*

In other words, sure I could go back and change some things but that is no guarantee that if I did and If I was offered the same situation again that I wouldn't keep taking it to try and change more.

I don't believe "time" exists anyway. It's just an observation.

You have consciously forgotten you're breathing until you just read this. Why not take a few nice... slow.... and long deep breathes now you're aware.

Chill

Cool

RE: would you use a time machine to change your past
There are some things I wish I had done differently. I doubt many of us make it through life without at least one decision they would make differently when looking back on it later.

I wish there would have been adults in my life that looked out for me and protected me, but going back in time wouldn't change that.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted, and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: would you use a time machine to change your past
I would, but I'd be really crafty about it.

I'd live my life as long as I reasonably can until I'm pretty sure that I'm near the end of my time. Then I'd jump in the time machine, go back and do all the things I should have done the first time.

RE: would you use a time machine to change your past
I guess that now I should already be able to change my past. And if I would have had a time machine, then wouldn't have been there already a dozen of other unknown occurrences that would have changed the course of my decisions? Just wondering.

However, I would change my body, my environment, the place where I would be born. Though, I'm not sure. It feels like it is just the way it should be. Consider
