Three Historical Events We Wish We Could Be Part Of

Updated on March 29, 2012

There are so many to choose from but we don't want to waste energy and time. We just choose randomly

We wish I could go back to...the day when Jean Jacques Rousseau was born...why? Because, he was the forefathers of the French Revolution, the innovator of auto bio-graphing, and the father of modern Pedagogy. We would love so much to search into his mind. Why did he achieve so many things... having been born almost death, and as feeble and weak as Issac Newton, and considered a retard like Thomas Alva Edison. He was thankful at a later time to his Auntie (Therese Tante), for keeping him safe during his first months on this world.

JUNE 28 1712

After swallowing all the info from search engines, I took that deep plunge into time. My language goes from English to Eighteen century Swiss-french; I arrived to his Parents home, right on time. His mom Suzanne Bernard had some complications that caused her fever and postpauperal side effects. Joseph Lister was not around to tell this Madame midwife, to wash her hands thoroughly.

Rousseau's dad is helping this 'obstetricien' to welcome this premature creature. The silent room gives way to a new life: "'Avec beacoup de plaisier, mademoiselle' Bernard. So, you and Issac your husband, want to name him Jean Jacques?" Inquires this husky midwife Citoyen from a nearby Lac Lehman City.

I see myself checking Rousseau's mother Personal Library, that her Calvinist dad left for her...and the future Philosopher. We recognize authors like Plutarch, Dante, and Luther...The smell of lavender oil and those books, make us think... that we are actually there... Oh God! Even some sort of fetid urine smelling invades my nostrils through the front door.

Adolph Hitler and his reason to be...

I want to travel back to Germany and see how this Nazi Party took over the country and eventually most of European soil. I wish I could read Hitler's mind, and ask him what was the real reason of his hatred toward the Jew. Was this incident at a pre crystal-natch bakery a real event? Or was passed down to us by his propagandist Joseph Goebles. I wish I could've gotten to know him since his prime years. I just found out that he died suffering early stages of Parkinson's disease. However, I was wondering, why did he hate his dad's ruling? A rebel without cause from his time, I might guess. He wanted his party to last over a thousand years and barely made it to that historical April 30, 1945.

First day at the Giza pyramids construction

I wish I could be there and witness with my own eyes those first hours of their construction. I know I will see some slaves being forced to push those megalithic rocks by the Nile river. I want to be able to understand the language and how they actually sounded. I want to visit King Kuphus palace, and follow him to the construction site... the year? 2588 B.C.

What really struck me is the Engineering inherited from Amhotep, who started to build one of the first Pyramids for King Djoser (2632 B.C). In that time lapse, around 55 years, the pyramids went from a single Mastaba or flat benched Tomb, to the ones built at Giza. It's really amazing to know that Amhotep was a Priest, Architect, Physician and Mathematician. We wonder if Leonardo Da Vinci ever heard of him.

    Hi Cristy,

    I don't know but seems that you still smile as though you were a young kid, just my mind, forget it. There is so much to write about regarding the past. Noe History has been written according to the times. So far, we have accurate facts and we just try to connect the loosen ends. Thanks for the Kudos and support!

    I like the idea of this hub. Yes the pyramids for sure! Creativity here Lord, well done!

    I would love to go to medieval times as well. That prince charming in shining armor has been instilled in women from generations, and they see a joust as a way of releasing them from everyday stress. Thanks for commenting my friend.

    John Sarkis,

    We see a paradise where we are next to Emile, and he take us to his school. All is perfectly done. The kid is molded according to Rousseau's theories. Emile, himself, tells us that he was born free, almost got his shackles from society, but luckly was found by Jean Jacques that took him to meet Julie, his New Heloise... and they start learning to see that all men are equal before God.

    Interesting. I don't think I could bear talking to Hitler. While I do think intellectually it would be interesting to understand him better, the thought of being in his presence makes me feel ill.

    Another time I'd be interesting in visiting would be the American Revolution and the signing of the constitution (I just watched the John Adam's series - amazing!).

    Thanks for sharing!

    Very interesting points in time. Those would be some great events to attend. If I could, I would go back to the time of knights and jousting. A thought provoking hub!

    Great hub. I like Rousseau's "Emile." It was an important forerunner to modern philosophy.

    Congrats and glad to know you

    Congrats on your 30/30, Lord! This is a most excellent hub! I appreciate the thoughtful research you included here, and the way your writing takes us to the time and place of the historical people and events you mention. I've often tried to mentally picture myself at an event, too - it's a great exercise for creativity.

    Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting. And shared!

    lord de cross: I enjoyed this article. Thank you.

    The three Historic periods in time I'd love to visit or revisit if you will are as follows.

    1. The time of creation to warn Adam.

    2. The 33 years from Christ's birth to His resurrection and ascension

    3. The time when Christ does battle against satan and defeats him.

    I'd love to be there to say "I told you so"

    Granted the third is not a historic period or era as yet, but it is a day I want to be present in to see satan get his dues.

    Congratulations on completing your 30/30 challenge. I've always found architecture and art fascinating, so I would like to be able to understand the pyramids better. as for what three historical events I could choose, I am not sure I could pick just three.
