National Wormhole Day: Bloghop

"What would you do or where would you go if you could traverse a wormhole through space or time just once? One safe round trip passage. Would you go back in time and talk some sense into a younger you? Go five years into the future and bring back the Wall Street Journal? See just how the heck the Great Pyramids of Giza were really built? View what the other side of the universe looks like?"

None of the proposed options appeal to me. A wormhole is a phenomenon that if improperly utilized could cause limitless paradoxes and space-time conflicts that stand to unravel the very fabric of time and threaten existence itself. That said, I will set aside my reservations for the meddling with existentially cataclysmic forces and answer the proposed question.

First off, I'd forgo the safe round-trip passage. If I'm going to travel through space time, I surely will not desire a return-- nor will I rob myself the pleasure of facing uncertain danger. It's quite romantic really, blipping about various ages and places across reality. I'd liken the experience to an episode Dr. Who, chancing into otherworldly delights and dangers by means of the TARDIS' tricks.

If I had to limit my dimensional exploration to only one place and time I'd travel to the furthest point in human (or whatever evolved species genetically derivative of humanity at the time) advancement wherever it is located in the universe. I'd like to visit an era that would allow for physical alternations that ensure biological life becomes indefinite  as well as tools to further express the limitless creative forces always swelling in my mind-- writing books for an eternity.

Perhaps I've taken this fun little game too seriously?
