If you could go back in time to any period - when would it be and what would you do that would change the present?

    Beautiful question and I have so many answers to give, but I'll stick with being able to go back to 1785 and see Mozart perform live. Though I'd not change a thing.

    "Mozart" - never heard of her -  is she a historic rap artist or something ?

    I think they were more like late era grime, with a hint of smooth jazz.

    I'd go back to the late 50's and see the music I love performed live, as for changing the future I'd abolish the Tory party and undo all the damage they have done.
    2024 The year of the general election...the time for change is coming 💡

    The 50s was amazing for music.  Early 60s was even better. Bring on Ray Charles.  <3

    I'd either, rather selfishly, go back in time to when I was a child being seen by a specialist who informed my parents "He cannot have ADHD, he isn't failing school" and tell them to go get a second opinion. However, I would also create a paradox of there being 2 of me in one place and possibly destroy the universe.


    So I suppose my other option would be.... Oh it's a tough one there's so many very interesting parts of history. I could go back to the Bronze Age Collapse to find out what really happened (we don't really know), see Rome during it's height, witness the Dancing Plague of 1518, witness the history of the Incan Empire (they never developed a written language despite how advanced they could be in other areas).

    There's more and more but I'd be here all day and not doing my job. I also wouldn't change anything, I can't have that kind of responsibility and you never know if it will actually make things worse. Butterfly effect is a crazy thing.

    This is a really interesting question. 

    I'd like to go back to just before the big bang...but where would I sit to watch that?  :#

    Would like to back to the stone age, before humans started ruining the world with excessive consumption.

    But I'd also like to visit Greece, Rome & Egypt at the height of their empires, which would be contradictory.

    If I could change one thing, I'd prevent the post-war population boom - there are far too many people in the world now.  That's the inconvenient truth about the increase in rate of climate change in recent years.

    See, I also considered this but yeah. You'd have nowhere to sit.

    Also, just after the big bang it would be so hot you'd be instantly vapourised. The first 20 minutes is hot enough for nuclear fusion to occur *so the current science says.
