Welcome to another meeting of the minds that is The Lounge! This week is all about time machines. How you interpret that is up to you!
I wrote a post a few months ago about what I would do if I had a time machine. I was overwhelmed with the response I received. It seems there are a few people who would like to go back and tell their teenage selves that life does get better.
This time I decided to go a different route and talk about the time periods that I would love to visit. Most of them though I would like to visit in a more ‘floating in the air’ type deal rather than actually living in the time period.
The first time period that I would love to visit is The Middle Ages. It was always my favourite thing to learn about in History. It was one of the most turbulent time periods in the English history though so I would definitely prefer to watch from afar. I loved learning about the different ways that things were done, especially the weird and wonderful medical concoctions that were created. Of course it also included horrifying epidemics including The Black Plague.
Another Era which I loved learning about in history was Ancient Egypt. I loved learning about the different Gods and how these Gods had an impact on the way the Egyptians lived their lives. It was also awe inspiring to read how the slaves made the pyramids using nothing more than ropes and ramps made of mud to drag the heavy stones to where they needed to be.
I would also love to see the dinosaurs. Of course this would again be one of those times when I would be happy to just float in the air in observance rather than be in with all of the action. I think it would interesting to see the different colours and how they lived because of course at the moment those kinds of things are educated guesses based on scientific evidence discovered. I have also always wondered when humans began to exist and if it was while dinosaurs still freely roamed.
What time period would you visit if you had a time machine?
