Time travel question.. If you were to travel 1 year into the future for the purpose of

seeing where you are so that you could adjust where you are going if needed...what do you think you woud see?
ESSA:

hmmmmm as I've never had a plan, i wouldn't know what part to adjust.....(i am a floater in the toilet bowl of life)
and if i did see something in a years time that i didn't like, who's to say the adjustment would effect other things and make my future worse

Amazing guy:

you are too funny. A floater in the toilet bowl of life....
You raise a good point though, who is to say trying to change the future, might not make it worse?

SLAPCADY:

I would see the TV and more importantly the winning lotto numbers, then I could be whoever I wanted to be in 1 year.

Amazing guy:

ok, but since it's my time machine you gotta share...

SLAPCADY:

Deal!
Lets go!

Jack:

I would check the Power Ball numbers as well as the commodities markets. I'd want to parlay those paltry few tens of millions into a few billion before retiring a year from now. ;-)

Jack:

Then again, if time travel were possible, were are all of the time travelers? Or can you only travel ahead in time? ;-)

Amazing guy:

I don't know Scott, but what if it is possible? What if we encounter it and never know it? Hmmmm, what if...

Legoblock:

i wouldn't change anything because the lord kniws the plans for you plans not to harm you but to help you

Amazing guy:

not even if it meant having the right guy ask you out? ; )

Gary:

Only 1 year ahead? I believe I would see just about what I see now but with only a hand full of changes to my house. Worse case scenario, I wouldn't be here, I'd be dead, then it wouldn't matter.

Amazing guy:

Perhaps a year is not long enough but for me... a year is plenty = )

Tyler:

you better not be!!

Joejoeb36:

The problem with time travel into the future is that it would mean the future is predetermined and we have no control over it. We would then be only actors on a scripted stage, playing our parts with no hope for a better outcome. I would like to think of time as chaotic and our actions random and that the future is unknown

Amazing guy:

Well I think that time is chaotic, an illusion in many ways, and that our actions are mostly random and our future mostly unknown. However, if you looked one year a head and could foresee you were not in a place you wanted to be in any area of life then conceivably you would have the opportunity to make a different choice along the way an alter that outcome. The question is, in a random action world, would we recognize the choice we were suppose to change when it appeared before us??

Joejoeb36:

In my opinion, that choice would not exist because if it did my observation of chaos would be incorrect and I am never wrong, except when I think I am. If I may ask, if you perceive yourself in the future and don't like what you see and act in the present to change your future status, what would you have perceived?

Amazing guy:

What would I have perceived in my time travel that I endeavored to change? hmmm, If in one year I perceived myself to have stopped growing and expanding my world, in other words if I were to find myself exactly at the same level I am now, and if I were also alone at that time, I would endeavor to make sure that my choices included more risk taking, more open minded exploration, more learning and I would pay much more attention to what Id have to change to assure I was not alone. Currently my life focuses heavily on obligations and other people, and if I were to see that I was not fully living and experiencing the wonders of life, that would light surely light a fire under my butt to make sure I did something about it!!!

Captain:

It is my belief that if it was possible to travel into the future, it would be the single most probable future based on current events. The further into the future you go, the more the future you enter relies on future events, not current ones. From our current time frame, you leave the probable future and enter the possible future. I sincerely doubt we can enter the same future more than once. On the other hand, to travel into the past automatically erases any hope that you will ever return to the present that you left. The Butterfly Effect wasn't just an Ashton Kutcher movie. Just by going into the past, you move sub attomic particles that were not meant to be moved. they then move other particles which then moves something else. The end result is that you have just erased history as you know it simply by traveling into the past.

But of course, this question is about going into the future, which is probably much more difficult that going into the past, although it should have the same consequences. The future is unwritten and unstable. Our present is always writing and rewriting the future with every second of time that passes.

Amazing guy:

Looks like there are more questions to ask.... perhaps we should be exploring the concept of time travel a bit more.

RUFUS:

Being married with children, a raise from the boss.

Amazing guy:

I hope you do see those things

Tyler:

i would be living in california...

Amazing guy:

enjoy the sunshine!!

Gary:

Why would you want to do that? Living on the edge of the planet that is positioned to fall into the ocean any day now makes even myself wonder why am I even here? The fires, lack of rain, and weather is getting worse every year. Crime is out of hand, gangs rule the streets and neighborhoods, their graffiti is everywhere, school drop out levels are at an all time high, some only teach in spanish and refuse to teach other kids, local Government leaders do nothing to cause changes for the better, and living conditions for many are getting worse. Now adays unless you live in a gated community you need to carry a firearm if you work or live near certain neighborhoods. I am already looking to move up outta here to a much nicer and cooler and less humid climate. But I am afraid the only place anywhere for those conditions is not even in the US. I am going to take my sorry behind back to the wilderness, like Old Yeller.

Captain:

Old Yeller never made it to the wilderness in the end. He was shot in a corn pen. Come to New Hampshire, everyone else is.

Rettag:

no, the real melting pot is here baby! California - beautiful beaches, weather, and people!!

Rettag:

Where exactly do you live Cyber...wholly smokes - what you describe is NOT where I live AT ALL....

Captain:

Theoretically, if I could travel one year into the future, I would look to see if I have a literary agent and how I got to that point so I could go back and do it again to maintain the stability of the theoretical space/time continuum, thereby averting a paradox that could theoretically rip the whole thing apart.

Hmm, a very scientific sounding answer for I hope like HECK I get published soon = )
