    What is an event that could happen in the future you would travel forward to see?

    Everyone always asks what you would change if you could go back in time.  Well what about the opposite.  If there was one thing you could go into the future to witness, what would it be?

    My wedding! I would love to meet someone and enjoy life with a partner and family. I was married once and have now been divorced for nearly five years. I am ready to move to that next chapter.

      Also gives you a good chance to critique what you like and don't like about it so you can make adjustments.  A very personal and honest answer.  Nice.

    A movie which is not played visually but experientially, i.e. they put electrodes on your scalp and you enjoy the movie as if you were there!

      Wow.  That is a very cool idea.  I imagine sooner or later they'll perfect a system like that.  It's a great idea and something that could become viable given how the human race is evolving.

    What do you mean, "IF"?  Seems to me that at least some of us DO travel forward in time from time to time.  (How's that for a triple prepositional transition?)

    What else is a premonition if not "forward time travel"?  Abraham Lincoln dreamed of his own death; what else but time-jumping could that be?

    Just saying....

    On the other hand, skipping over the intervening events to view or experience a future event has definite disadvantages.  Example:  Let's say that when I was 20 or so, I jumped ahead 50 years to 2013 and saw that I was extremely busy, healthy, had the bills paid, and lived with a woman I loved.  Not bad, right?  At 20, I believed I'd be dead by age 60, so that would have looked pretty good by comparison.

    But that looksee would not have taken into account all the Living Hell it took to get from there to here (or, back then, from here to there).  I might well have said, "Cool; got it made."  Yet I'd have been less braced for the feces storm about to hit between 1963 and 2013, for sure.

    Time travel is doable.  It's also a double edged sword.

      Ghost32, I think you misinterpret  EJ Lambert's question, or else I am the one! I interpret it as "What is the event that you would be most keen to see, if you can travel forward in time." Not whether we can or cannot, or what the consequences are.

      Walter is right, Ghost.  I have no interest in discussing the possibilities of time travel.  That is an argument best left to scientists and science fiction writers.  I'm merely speaking in hypotheticals.

    I would love to know what society will be like when we've had internet (or whatever the internet evolves in to) for 1000 years. However, I'd settle for 100. Who knows? With the advances in medical technology, maybe I'll live long enough to see for myself!

      Perhaps it will evolve into a full body experience rather than just a computer screen.  It is fascinating to think about how much further we can push this technology for the coming decades.

    Without thinking twice, it would absolutely be the second coming of Christ.

      I imagine that would be a very popular answer.

      Can't complain about that answer.
