  • Time Machine

    Assume it's possible to go back in time, but
    • only once, and
    • exactly 10 years.
    You have all the knowledge from now, but you are back in April 2009 (and as old as you were then).

    Would you do that?
    If so, would you
    • change some decisions, or
    • would you do everything differently, or
    • would you just repeat everything and enjoy it again, knowing wha comes next?

    The problem with such a long time period would be (for me): You change something, and then your live goes a totally different way, and you can just drop away all of your experience, it doesn't help.

      Do others also get the same opportunity?

      If so, it will be super messy. A 5 years old children will be vanished then.

      All over 10 years of age go back in time with each provision and meet again at 10 years ago. Your wife not necessarily want to repeat the same mistake with you again. She hold existing knowledges also, right. So, no i suppose.

      However, if it's only my privilege, probably still no, because anything exisiting now, doesn't go back in time with me.

        In before someone else mentions becoming rich with all their future stock-market knowledge and sports scores betting etc.

          Only 10 years back, only one trip and you can never come back? What kind of cheap time machine is that?

            Do you think it's easy to build a time machine? They will surely get better some day, but it needs rare metals, engineers, new laws of physics etc.

                    That would be 2009. I was 51. I think the only change I would make would be to retire early. I would have stopped working, that's it.

                        Retirement age is normally at 65 in Canada but some people choose to - or have to - continue working. I retired at 60 because my wife enjoyed her job and I didn’t want to sit at home alone. Looking back, the extra years at work were not really worth it.

                        So, would you go back in Markus’ cheap, one-way time machine?

                          I am a bit confused if we can change a little bit past story..would it change the story now?

                          Lets wait markus's answer what he want to change a thing or not at all

                            Well.... if I'd get just 15 months more, I would. In the beginning of 2008, I was in love (really-really in love, more than ever later), and if I'd know what can happen (what actually happened), maybe I could make this relationship last. She said we didn't fit together. Maybe she was right, but maybe it would be worth it anyway.

                            But 2009... I don't know, but I would seriously think about it. I'm a fan of Finland, and if I'd speak the language as good as I do now, 10 years ago, maybe I would move there. Now I'm 47 and quite old for that (maybe it's never too late, but it's easier if you're young).

                              My idea was,
                              • either it's only for you and no one else,
                              • or: It's for everyone, but no one knows if and when the others use it.
