You can only observe through the eyes of an ancestor, and you can not effect change in anyway. Would you bother to time travel at all, just to observe? Or is the motivation for time travel is for us to change the past?
I dont believe most people's motivation is to change the past, just to escape the present or relive cherished memories. That being said if i wasnt having such a great time in the present and I could time travel indefinately I think I would do it
