Not sure what it is called (or if it has a name), but one of those boxes containing a letter from yourself with some images and time-typical objects that I know some people dig down in their garden or hide in their house for others to find in the future.
I think thats a time capsule
That’s the word for it! Not sure if I’m cheating a little since the question says an object and a box technically is an object full of other objects.
Can I send myself?
you can indeed - but you’ll have to hope that there’s not been a robot apocalypse in the time between!
I think my final decision would be send a really creepy message to mess with the future people
I don’t think I want to see the future (if by future, you mean 100s of years later)
”hello, I am from the future
the end of the world is in 20012
P.S: the Mayans were dyslexic”
do i eventually get the object back?
i wouldnt really want to do either since they would both mess up time, but sending a vr headset would be interesting since you could compare the two
Me also to
i would send something random like, say, a reclining armchair, into the past, like wayyy back in the ancient times, and i would just reread my history books and laugh hysterically at the letters they sent to each other in confusion on why the chair moves and why it just poofed into their house someday. or watch tv and see it get excavated and be like ‘huh, i didn’t know the greeks had La-Z-Boys’
mine isnt profound or eerie but completely for comedic purposes, which really shows my personality huh
A camera, into the future, so I could record future discoveries. As well as this, I do not want to tamper with the past.
- everything that happened in the past!
- everything that will happen in the future!
I would see everything from the past so i can see what it was like back then instead of reading books about it
And also Egyptian mythology is so interesting so i would see that too
polio vaccine into the past
id be a new version of the ancient greek oracle
seeing things in the past would uncover a lot of mysteries
and i wouldnt want to see the future
In the future, you could see where to invest now and where best to use money and resources to stop future problems and malicious people - money’s not everything, but I can see it solving some things!
I’m banking on the hope that someone in the future will solve them, and it could be learned from there!
i don’t want everyone conctantly coming to me for life predictions, you know? and then i could see what my relatives were like, and just replay things over and over in my head and it’d be awesome haha.
History is one of my favorite subjects, so it’d be cool to live through a bunch of historical events that happened in the past.
Also, I don’t want to spoil my future for myself.
I love history
