If you have a time machine would you go back and change anything in the past?
Would you correct any mistake that you might have made? Would you go to the future and see what might happen to you?
Normally right after doing something stupid I wish I could go back and change things. But to be honest I'd probably only make a bigger mess if I was able to go back in time, so I think it's a good job I can't!
I would change marriages that felled due to their mistakable past. But God is really the one who can help us forget the bad memories of the past, and move on with our good future.
Fascinating question, brings up the topic of multiple realities - if you go back in time, change the past (altering the future) what happens to the present you traveled back from?
Oooh, I don't know really. I don't think I'd change much in my past, I would have a look into the future though, just to see whats going on!
If I could go back to past, I will correct all of my big mistakes.
Very good question. I've thought about very often. However, I was always clear, a change would set in motion another chain of events. Maybe I would not like this. What then? Would I go back again?
I could waste my life, is to change the past. But it would really change my life? Would it improve my life?
But of course, with the knowledge of today, one could also intervene in such a way that one buy stocks, land or business Shares.
A beautiful mind game, anyway.
Ultimately, it would be like in the trilogy "Back to the Future ". A great film.
I'm with MoneyCreator24 on this one...the repercussions and effects (on the present) of changes to the Past would be totally interesting...
Lots of stories, novels about people travelling in time and changing their own futures...great stuff!
Personally I subscribe to the 'multiple timeline' approach to the time travel paradox, much more manageable way of looking at it.
Yes. There are 2 things I regret more than anything else. I wrote about one in a hub called "Deborah". The other I care not to mention.
love this question...it really makes me think about my past...i dare say there is nothing i would change...i like what my past has created in the now:) cheers!!
I would go back and stay there, no need to come back. I often had the feeling that I don't belong in this time.
no i feel i have learned from my past mistakes and experinces some of wich made me who iam today for me changing my past would be like changing me
Oh yes, would certainly go back in time and change a couple of things that would mean our lives would be totally different today!
Not sure I'd want to head into the though ......

Well, not just WHAT, you can also say, WHY would that be 'the ONE thing' you could change about your past? It may be an incident, a behaviour, an attitude, a day or a night..simply anything!

If time travel were possible, would it be illegal?Would countries, sanction or possibly ban the use of time travel? Would they just tax it? The implications of being able to change something in the past could be economically destructive.

Is it easy for you to let things go?Is it possible to learn the "take it easy" attitude? Can you change your personality?
