By Cheryl Knight,
In our August issue of Paranormal Underground (which will be online in just a couple of days), we focus on Alternate Dimensions/Parallel Universes and Time Travel.
While putting the issue together, one question that kept popping into my head involved time travel. And that question wasn’t whether or not time travel will ever be possible, but that WHEN Time Travel IS possible — that is being able to travel to a past time or a future time — would I REALLY do it if I had the chance, and if I would do it, why?
Let’s look at the past. What would be the purpose to “go back”? To learn a lesson from the past? To change the past? To see a relative again who has since passed on? To be witness to something great in our history?
There are many reasons that one might want to time travel to the past. How many of us have joked about “If we could only do this or that over again …”? “If we could only see a dear family member or friend again who has passed on.”
But as a firm believer in things happening for a specific reason, I don’t want to change the past, so I wouldn’t go back for that. And I don’t think I would need to go back to learn a lesson, as I can do that just fine from where I’m at. LOL. But I have to admit, being able to go back and see family members and friends that have since crossed over is a pleasant thought for me, as is being witness to something significant in history, something good and profound.
But I’m still not sure I’d time travel to the past because that time is behind us.
How about time traveling to the future? What does intrigue me about the future is the unknown. What will happen 20, 50, 100, 1,000, 10,000 years from now? What will the world be like? What will the universe be like? What will we KNOW then?
I do think I’d jump at the chance to time travel to the future. Finding out what the human race is like down the road fascinates me.
What about you? If you could time travel to the past or future, would you? And why or why not?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic here on the BLOG comments or in our forum thread discussing this issue here: http://www.paranormalunderground.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=279
