BruceVC Posted March 14, 2014 Author Share Posted March 14, 2014 must I choose? can't I say "everything"? I'd like so see Persia during the Sassanid and Ghazvanid periods. I want to get my Arabian nights on. I'd like to see India during their golden age of the Gupta Empire, and I'd like to see it again during the Mughal Empire. I'd love to explore pre-Inca South America, visit the sun and moon temples in what is now Chile, see Machu Picchu during it's heyday I'd like to visit China during the Tang and Ming dynasties I'd love to see Pre-Christian Britain, Likewise I'd live to see the Viking river empire in eastern Europe which is memory serves was around the same time. I'd be remiss if I didn't want to see the seven wonders of the ancient world being built, including the hanging gardens and the pyramids. I'd like to see the ancient African empires, including the one in what is now Ethiopia with a stone city allegedly rivalling Rome. Visit Easter Island and the Hendersons before their societies collapsed. South Spain during the rule of the Muslims, visit Granada, Cordoba, and Valencia. Likewise I'd want to go across the Byzantine Empire around 600, right before most of it was lost. Italy during the renaissance. I'd like to learn the stretches of the Greek Empire before writing, there's some evidence suggesting it was vast. (So not ancient Greece, but Minoan and pre Minoan society.) I'd love to meet the Buddha (if he existed), Leonardo Da Vinci, my grandfather, my father when he was my age, Nietzsche, Bertrand Russell Charles Darwin during his voyage on the Beagle... oh man the list just goes on. Thats an impressive list, nice one "Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is and saw Virtue in her shape how lovely: and pined his loss” John Milton "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” - George Bernard Shaw "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead" - Nelson Mandela Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
