    If you could live in any other time, past, present, future, what would it be and why?

    I'd love to live in an age known as the Mesolithic or Middle Stone Age. I'd be a hunter gatherer in Britain just after the Ice age and just as it was in the process of breaking away from continental Europe. I'd live in the great wildwood with my extended family/tribe and spend my days foraging for food or anything else useful as well as hunting large animals. I think I'd be very happy with that as it would feel far more natural and fulfilling than the modern lifestyle.

      That was a great and imaginative answer! That is a time period that I would have not thought to consider, but the simplistic lifestyle does seem appealing! Fantastic!

      I like your answer. I think living among nature and feeding off the land is human instinct, most of the time.

    The future, of course, because I belong there. I am an evolved creature, impatiently waiting for humanity to move beyond its infancy. I would certainly be attracted to the positive visions of the future as shown in science fiction; molecular replicators, teleportation, elimination of global hunger and strife, all the things that make life so brutish today. I believe that if we can avoid destroying ourselves we could reach this new threshold of cultural, social and economic renewal. Isn't that exciting?

    When the focus is no longer on material accumulation and the desire to over power and control one another, what will we challenge ourselves with in its stead?

      I have to point out that your answer was wonderfully written and passionate! I loved it! I do feel at times I would rather have been born in the future and your response added fuel to that fire! Nicely done!

      Unless something is done about religion you won't get your paradise. We'll all drown in the numbers of humans infecting our planet. In the Star Trek world it took a third world war to wipe out enough humans to make a better earth possible.

    I would live in the future, because there are sure to be many more medical breakthroughs and quality of life improvements.  I would also love to see my niece and nephew's children/grandchildren, etc grow up!

      Overpopulation of the planet may mean that it will be more of a struggle to be admitted to hospital. Also there are new stains of bacteria that are resistant to present day antibiotics. Seeing how your family go in the future would be something.

      Very interesting! There are always pros and cons to everything but I love the idea of seeming future relatives!!

    I would live in 1920s Australia. An horrific world war has just come to an end. The Australian federation is still young and vibrant. We're beating the British at the Ashes in cricket. The airplane is still exciting and people like Kingsford Smith are making history with historic flights.

    New exciting writers are doing new and exciting things with writing. D. H. Lawrence's novel 'Kangaroo' came out in 1923. 'Ulysses' by James Joyce was released in 1922. 'The Great Gatsby' by F. Scott Fitzgerald was first published in 1925. Then there's 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles' by Agatha Christie (1920) and 'Orlando' by Virginia Woolf (1928). There's also science fiction with such writers as Edgar Rice Burroughs and H.G. Wells (yes he was still around and he was still writing in the 1930s) stirring things up.   

    In Australia, USA, Britain,Germany, Italy and France silent films are developing along all sorts of lines. There are experiments with colour and also sound. Mind you the first full length film to use synchronized sound on the actual film stock won't be released until 1927.

    Some of the best jazz to come out of the USA came out in this decade. Possibly the strangest yet also the most compelling forms of jazz came out of Germany at this time. Radio brought the world closer.

    There were pulp magazines, ice treats in summer and packaged sweets.

    In New South Wales, Australia in the suburb of Ramsgate a marvelous series of baths was created together with an eatery and a fantastic room of distorting mirrors, fortune teller machines and slot machines. There was also a wonderful aviary full of native birds. It was all still there in my youth but was dismantled in the 1970s to make way for a car park for a supermarket. What a tragedy! But to be there is the 1920s and to see it all shiny and new would be too wonderful to describe. I can still remember the banana fritters covered in icing  sugar hot from the eatery along with hot chips (this was the 1960s). Something tasty that melts in your mouth after a swim. But back in the 1920s it would have all had a certain freshness and uniqueness to it that would have been an extra delight. And Luna Park in Sydney wouldn't have been very old back then either.

    I wouldn't want to be in the USA during this period because of Prohibition and the problems that caused. Other than that there's the music, the wild dances, the cars and the writing. And the pace of life would suit me very well. The only downer would be 1929 and the start of the Great Depression.

      That is a great answer! Very well thought out! The 1920 would be an interesting time to be a part of for sure and Australia seems to be a fantastic place for that time period! Awesome!

    I would have to answer with the present. It is a present because tomorrow is unknown, which may be an uncomfortable feeling, while the past is what made us who we are.
