    Hello friends,

    I'm sure we've all seen those crazy sci-fi movies where time travelling is a legit thing. The protagonists go back in time and alter something for the "greater good", but, often, it results in unintended and devastating consequences. Humankind has always had a desire to travel through time, whether to the past or to the future, till now with no known successful attempts. But imagine, just for a second, if you could travel to the past and change something… (this is 2020 after all, guys)

    Some time back, in Wormhole, @YRJ asked a question- "If you could change one event in the past, what would it be?" And that got me thinking, is there any event so bad I would want to change it? Of course, throughout history, we have various examples of atrocities committed against mankind. Would I change that? Would I stop the World Wars, the slavery, the genocide?

    Some people (@superplus @SRD. ) saw the funny side to the question, and came up with answers such as they would stop the invention of books or agriculture. Then we could all be apes just fooling around in the wilderness. I'm currently a student, and I totally agree with this, I wish life was simpler.

    But if I could change one thing, I think I'd stop the creation of anything or the universe. What if nothing exists at all? Just thinking about this gives my brain so much stimulation. It cannot understand, it's been hardwired to have a purpose. But if nothing exists, there is no universe, no earth, no me, no you…... what is purpose? We wouldn't have sadness, calamities, deaths, but also we'd lose happiness, friendship and life itself. It is something to think about... In fact, my mind got so muddled I could not think for a while. Don't get me wrong, I like my life, but I'd give everything for nothing to exist.


    Anyways, away from the intense discussion, this was my point of view. What's yours? What event would you change in the past? It could be a funny take as well as a serious one like I mentioned. Reply to this thread and let me know!

    He isn't the only genius ever to live...many would have explained that phenomenon if he did not. He is just the first to find out. Besides that, physics is interesting and everything.

    This is some serious $&&t. We all have something one could change for once. My Tiny mind can't even comprehend what could I have done. There are so many things I would have wanted to set right.

    This is an interesting question @Aditya Javadekar
    If I ever travel through time in past, then I would be knowing the way how to achieve time travel. I will go back in time, tell myself how to travel back in time and get that patented so that few years later I can come across the same patent to make this possible and go back in time to tell myself how to travel back in time and get that patented so that few years later....

    Caught in a loop 😎

    By explaining the govt about the damages and suggest to announced a complete lockdown from January rather than from March because the first case of the coronavirus was detected in India in January.

    Congratulations for your wonderful thread @Aditya Javadekar 🎊🎉 and thanks for the tag.
    Yeh ! I still believe , I could have destroyed all books.
    we would have been a bunch of playful apes hanging out together , no complex life.



    So Sorry about the accident @Mr. BG. I take back my wish of destroying the books, I also would have saved your father.
