I would have liked to have been present when Diotima taught Socrates everything 
he knew about love. But of course, with all the modern conveniences!

Actually, no, you're not. Since I made up the rules for this exercise, I get to 
make up this one. You DO get to come back to the place/time you started from. 
But while you're gone, no cameras, no video, no recording devices of any kind. 
When you DO come back, all that you have to convince anyone else of where/when 
you were and what you experienced there is your own word, your own ability to 
tell the story of your experience. 

I think that's fair. That's what witnessing siddhis is like.  :-)

That's good, a moment worth being there for.

I may be the guy making up the rules, but even I haven't figured out what 
happens if you time-travel to another time and there's no there there. :-)

Been there, done that. :-) Even punched out Jim Morrison once, but that wasn't 
at the Whisky.

Ha. I read your post *after* reading and replying to s3raphita's earlier, and 
mentioning wanting to go back to Paris during the Belle Epoche and be Van 
Gogh's patron. Synchronicity, dude.  :-)

What if it was an ornamental outhouse?  :-)

Maybe you did, but I went back later and chatted up Hawking the whole time so 
he never saw you. :-)
