Will you go bravely into the then?

Post by Rob Lister » Sat Mar 29, 2014 5:58 pm

Suppose (1) ...

A means exists for you to be transported 200 years into the future. You are guaranteed to survive [the journey] safely and without any detriment to mind or body. You don't know what it will be like [on the other side], of course, and there does not exist the possibility of coming back (strictly a one-way ticket). All impediments to the journey or emotional attachments [to the now] are somehow vanquished; for example, the family is okay with it or you don't much like them anyway.

Will you go? Under what conditions?

Suppose (2) ...

You can take with you your body's weight in whatever you so choose so long as you can afford it. What will you take?

To my own poll, and given the conditions stated, I chose to go. I'm a humanity optimist, a technologist, and an adventurist. I do not suggest I think it would be without risk, but optimist that I am, I'm betting even the downsides would be worth enduring to see and live in our world then. I've taken on more risky ventures. So I'm a definite 'in'.

What would I take, you were about to ask? That's a tougher question. I have to ponder that a bit.

Nothing? Don't try mooching off me when we get there.

I'm thinking something with a high potential anthropological value. Something not digitizable, or perhaps something exceedingly fragile. Perhaps I'd make my living on the speaker circuit. It's too hard to predict what might be more rare then than now so ordinary commodities are out. Art perhaps? Risky, that.

In that vein..... a poem:



Time Out


Those in the future knew exactly what to do
as each time-traveler arrived.
After all, they’d had the entire duration
to make any special arrangements.

Whether that meant
notifying family or friends for pick up
or arranging medical
or psychological treatment.

In some cases of course
the incoming would arrive expired
due to age or other factors
that could cut a lifetime short.

And yes, of course they aged
when making that instantaneous
one-way trip through time,
there was no getting around that,
it was simply the laws of physics.

In fact that was the point.
There was no memory,
just a blank spot while
while time passed, the body aged
and the criminal sentence was served.

I wouldn't go. If I had to go, I'd bring along a well thought out and stocked survival kit and maybe a bike, but there's no guarantee that wherever one lands is habitable or inhabited, or that whomever you might find is friendly.

I also would be concerned about dragging anything along that might be detrimental, or that I have to live out the rest of my life as the famous living relic quarantined in a sealed cage. :-P

I'm more optimistic. I think it could be post apocalyptic, so I'd bring my pack: light sleeping bag, water filter, food, water, compass, med kit, ammo, etc. I'd also have my pistol and carbine. You know, all the stuff I carry in my truck, now.

When some future barbaric tribe comes after us, I'll have a fighting chance. While you try to get to your buried wine to try to bribe your way out of being tortured for entertainment, I'll be in the hills figuring out what resources I have available. They 'll probably just take your wine, and torture you anyway, but it will be extra harsh once they figure out your wine turned.

Where convicts fight to the death on live TV, to the strains of 80s synth music :P
When some future barbaric tribe comes after us, I'll have a fighting chance. While you try to get to your buried wine to try to bribe your way out of being tortured for entertainment, I'll be in the hills figuring out what resources I have available. They 'll probably just take your wine, and torture you anyway, but it will be extra harsh once they figure out your wine turned.
Your chances would certainly be better than mine. But, being as I'd likely be sprawled all incoherent drunk in a ditch, I might not much care :P

Unless they waited for me to sober up before commencing the torture. I wonder if they'd accept a monster hangover as punishment enough?
