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

If you'd have the opportunity, would you travel back (or forward) in time?I've been recently wondering, what would I do if I was suddenly able to travel in time.I guess I'd love to travel BACK, just to relive or be able to see certain events in my life again, or be with my beloved relatives who...

Do you think our future will be like Startrek or Stargate?In the future, do you think we will travel in spacecraft, through space at speeds that exceed that of light? Like Startrek or do you think we will travel by warp holes, through time and space? Like Stargate.

If an event has a 10% chance of happening, why is it not guaranteed to happen in 10 tries?
