Forward first so I can get my brain uploaded into an indestructible android body and get that hover conversion, then back to see cool stuff.In lieu of full robot, I will accept a super cyborg upgrade, as in Kate Baker’s time travel series about the company, Dr. Zeus.Reply Your Diet is working……Christ….who needs pictures of blackholes with this to watch…..amazingReply Well, that was a lovely presentation. I liked the costumes and the meeting-yourself event, and you covered a lot of ground. Of course, you missed out some of my favourite time-travel and alternative-world stories, but I have to accept that you can't include everything in ten minutes. A rather original non-technological method of time travel was covered in "Time and again" (Jack Finney, 1970), an atmospheric and distinctive novel, in which the protagonist is settled into an apartment in the Dakota building in New York (which existed in the 19th century), and surrounded by things of the 19th century, until he feels so much in the 19th century mood that eventually he just wakes up in the 19th century.If I had the opportunity to travel in time, or to alternative worlds, would I have the courage to use it? Only, I think, if I were confident of being able to come back. The past was, on balance, a worse place to live than the present. The future could turn out better or worse, but going more than a short distance into the future would almost certainly be a recipe for major future shock. We can cope with the future because it happens slowly and we have time to get used to it, but fifty or a hundred years of change suddenly dumped on me could be hard to cope with. Even if the changes were more good than bad.Reply Wonderful video! Loving the Allan keys in the time potato 😂 I’ve not been a fan of timetravel books but read All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai recently which I enjoyed. Much more a fan of alt history but I couldn’t tell you why one is interesting to me and the other isn’t 🤔Reply This was amazing! I may have to watch it a second time. Thanks also for the book links!Reply Oh man, best thumbnail ever. Also, your cosplay is amazingReply The more time travel I read the more I realise the people least qualified and trustworthy to time travel are historians.Reply outfits are poppin 👌🏼😂Reply This was a heckin DELIGHT to behold!Reply Awesome video!! I think I'll stick to time travel in books and movies thanks XD I've never really had a huge desire to time travel myself, anyway. Books do enough for me ♡Reply Super fabulous video! Thanks for this lesson in Speculative Fiction History!Reply In his book The Order of Time, Carlo Rovelli describes how the idea of the present is a bit ludicrous, and his theory is lovely and mind-blowing. Imagine that you and I are sitting in the same room. It takes a small fraction of a second for the light shining on you to reach my eyes, and vice versa. But the time it takes for me to see you is not the same time in which I am sitting there, seeing you. This lag is not noticeable to the naked eye, and it wouldn't be that noticeable even if we were on opposite sides of the globe. But it does exist, and the farther apart we are, the more noticeable it will be. No one is ever in the same present as you. Your left foot exists in a different time than your right hand. This is not even mentioning the effects of gravity on the direction of time, that a person at sea level will age slower than a person on Everest. Or that time stops existing as a series of events at a quantum level, which is way too complicated for me to understand by only listening to an audiobook.Reply Somebody has been to a few fancy dress parties. Love Mary Shelley's hat! Great vid!Reply Thanks for a wonderful video. Have you seenhttps://youtu.be/d3zTfXvYZ9sBTW I just got your lovely hand written letter. Much thanks!Reply oh man awesome video.. i gotta say.. i loveeeeee time travel in books.. no matter how it's done especially when an author can describe a scene.. i loved this video…. super awesome…Reply Yesssss lmao I love this!Reply What an incredible video!! I don't think I'd really like to time travel, might stick to reading books about it!Reply Great video!Reply In my University days, I always wanted more time. It's difficult to absorb all the data that gets thrown at you so quickly.Reply The production values on this are out of this world. "It's Mary goddamn Shelley!"Reply Oh gosh this was so great, and immediately added so many books to my already overflowing TBR, because one of my buzzwords is time-travel. I love reading/wacthing time travel stuff, but not sure I'd ever want to do it myself if I had the opportunity.Time travel is scary stuff. Honestly What if you travel ahead in time and land a place that no longer exist due to climate change? And back in time is so full of wars. Although I've always wanted to experience Queen on Wembley Stadium, so that might be a safe place to go.Reply awesome videoReply What a great video!!!Reply Great video, Elizabeth! Have you read the first fifteen live of Harry August? That is kind of a time travel book that seriously messes with your head.Reply First let me say: Great video! Very entertaining.However as a Science Fiction fan and fan of time travel stories, it pains me to say: Time does not exist as a dimension, (or at all really)! Time is a construct of Man. Time is Man's effort to quantify the naturally occurring progressions of events as the universe unfolds. Time can not be measured in any way; mass, energy, size or visibly. The fact a chronometer is effected the constant acceleration needed for 'time dilation' is not sufficient to prove the existence of time. (More to prove the power of gravity.) That said, The End of Eternity is the only one on your list I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and you've giving me several more titles to look for at my local library. Thanks.Reply THE POTATO. Best moment. Thank you 🙂Reply This is the best thing I've ever watched.Reply This was pure awesomeness! Love your costume-videos, they were part of what made me love your channel when I first found it. I am too much of a history geek not to want to go backwards in time. But I want a bulletproof return ticket and would appreciate a proper invisibility cape as well so I could just observe…Reply Yay, the costumes are back! Love your video. I would definitely travell to forward in time so I can binge watch all your future videos and to read sequels that just take to damn long….Reply This video is absolutely fantastic! <3And thanks for the list of works, I think I might try to read some of them since time travel is one of my favorite topics of theorizing about things I know absolutely nothing about 😀 I suppose that's why Endgame and Days of the Future Past give me headaches…Reply Lovely dressing gown….And yes – Time Traveler’s Wife – where did the clothes go? And I seem to remember there were other anomalies that were just as annoying….Reply This was amazing! Adored all the costumes. I'm exhausted on your behalf.Reply i 🖤 this!!! your costumes are fab!!! i would love to spend a day in the 50's, but it would def be strange and would have consequences… so i'd rather not…Reply well, if we're using magic I'd suggest Neil Stephenson's Rise and fall of Dodo it changed my view on Shakespeare with just a 2 line quip,as well as explaining the Viking Sagas, you might find a used and blood-spattered copy at Walmart? 🙂for physics and spaceships stay up to date with the latest Elizabeth Bear Ancestral Night not exactly time travel but a sentient ship mind that can navigate the vast distances involved and push you to the edge of the event horizon (and cats)Reply I love it when you make videos using costumes telling us about various books with a theme. I've been meaning to read The Forever War for years, I was gifted an omnibus with it in it, called Peace and War. And I had this strange idea in my head that I could read it, once I'd read War and Peace. But after some years I still haven't read War and Peace and I'm not sure I want to read it anymore, so I suppose I can just read Peace and War some time! I've read and liked The Accidental Time Machine as well as the three Mars books by Joe Haldeman.I liked The Time Machine by H. G. Wells. I have a couple of other books you mentioned on my TBR as well.Reply YAY! The clapping and costumes are back! Great video!!Me personally, I'm always confused by all those time travel paradoxes. Years later 12 Monkeys or The Time Traveler's Wife still don't make complete sense to me 🤔So I tend to avoid reading books where time travel is the main topic or I just ignore any (at least for my little brain) illogical/confusing parts of it 😊.Therefore I wouldn't want to time travel at all (neither backwards nor fowards). But, I would be very interested in traveling into books in the way of the Thoursday Next novels. That could be a way to visit past or future events (fictional or non-fictional ones) without messing things up.Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
