yes , and no it doesn`t .
I have thought about this from time to time... Future or past, I was born a month premature and seems like I chronically suffered from bronchitis as a child, so I probably wouldn't have made it all that long in the past; not to mention aside from fulfilling some sorted fantasy or fantasies (I freely admit that I have watched Fellini more than I should have), the past wouldn't appeal all that much to me. Then I can't help at times to wonder what sort of advancement future generations may have in place or perhaps not, but then again, I probably wouldn't want to know either way just to play it safe.
I have sort of redefined my thought process in the sense that any time is really the right time; although time is subjective in nature and ultimately meaningless. I merely need to put myself in the correct place.
No. I love the time I live in and the nation where I live.
Women have rights, disease is rare, food is plentiful and sanitation, medical science. the legal system and living conditions are the best ever in human history.
As much as I would like to visit some past times, I know I'd find people living with fleas and lice, halitosis common, sanitation nearly non-existent and the smoke and stink would be all but unbearable.
As many of you know, I am a Greco-Roman reconstructionist. The ancient Romans were the cleanest people in ancient times, give or take. Yet, one historian made curious comment on the famous 'baths' in Roman culture that I hadn't noticed before. You can still find the bath pools of ancient Romans in ruins around the Mediterranean. What you don't find in those bathing pools is a drain.
Meaning, Romans were in the bathhouses every day, bathing. But how often was the water changed?
The romans where famous for viaducts and sewer systems and the baths surely where connected to them, how else would you get rid of the water?
By slaves and buckets. I visited Italy this last spring. I visited the ancient bath houses and saw the pools myself. No drains.
Weird, i once saw a documentary and they had drains in baths there but maybe not for hot water tubs?
Yes I often feel i was born in the wrong time. I feel that i should have been in my 20s in the 70s or even further back i feel I should have been around during the times of king and queens. I feel it does enhance my attraction to paganism. Sometimes when I am doing a spell or ritual its second nature, like I've do it before even if its a new spell. Strange sometimes, the deja vue I get all the time.
Yes I used to and no it doesn't i dont think...I like history so when I was younger I used to fantasize living in other time periods... How wonderful it would be!. All that nature... pure air, and water.But the days of yore had its problems as well...people didn;t live that long ... ect.
How can you be born in the wrong time of something no one has control over that is set in stone?
