    Hello, If you can choose to born and live in 1690 vs 1990, what do you choose ?

    I think living in 1690, I might enjoy life more, today is 2009, and world is kinda going crazy.Just feeling like listening to classical music and those people seems to enjoy simple life and melodious music.

    So, what you think...

    did you ever think that in 1690, to listen to Classical music you would've actually had to wait months for the Orchestra to come to town? There was no recorded music back then..imagine if you were living in some small village..you could go through your whole life without ever hearing Classical music

    No electricity. No cars. No tv. No basic entertainment.

    Have fun in 1690.

    Although, it WOULD be fucking cool to bring technology back then, and only you have the technology.

    Like a machine gun or whatever.

    Not exactly what I mean..

    The simple life of those people, this world is becoming a hi tech world.Internet, and other technologies making the world spinning fast.

    Someone post on bhw that, they do some kind of fake downloads to put their music on most downloaded kinda of thing, like we do with youtube to get more traffic.Cheating is the way ? I mean, everybody cheats nowdays.

    I mean, we are after knowledge, knowledge, when we are just a living thing like animals, how can we study those things on the space ? One scientist makes a theory that its possible to build a time machine using wormhole (base on einstein law), I mean, why can't we just do things to make life happy, when that's the only thing that matters.

    PS:I feel kinda unmotivated today, maybe because I have $0 today, but maybe something else.

    Added:

    Baby is suppose to born after men and women are together as life's nature, but these days, scientist testing and creating fake tube babies and monkeys, I mean, they are creating a living being... aren't we so ahead ? what might be the consequence btw advance life vs destroyed world ? Do you thing we going advance or we destroying without knowing.

    If I could choose between 1690 and 1990, I'd choose 1990. There have been so many improvements over the centuries and I appreciate them. However I do think that I may be able to enjoy life a bit more though with the lack of technology that was present "back in the day." Hmm, very interesting thread.

    I had severe asthma as a child, so if I were born in 1690, I'd be dead. I'll stick to present day thx. ;)

    Definitely 1990.
    Sure, there's less pressure and rush back then, but the quality of life much lower when it comes to comforts and entertainment. Not to mention I would suck as a farmer or whatever I would be stuck doing.

    And in 2990, someone might say, I can't sit infront of pc all day making money, I can only sleep and think of a note and it will appear, or I can't sit in that metal vehical having a ferrari logo on it, our life would be like hell without a time machine.

    Maybe in the end, we have happiness in 1690 too and in 2009 also and in 2990 too, just how we want to enjoy and feel.

    Few months ago when i was starting to become mature, I feel there is no god, there is only law.But in the end, I think, doing good and living a life wisely and simple is better, no one can say there is god or not, I know alot people will say there is no god, alot will say there is god, alot of them fight with each other and think the other side is super dumb thinking there is no god/there is god.But I think believing in god doesn't harm and doing good doesn't harm too and its smarter choice because you will still be happy believing in god but by chance, if after you die and there is god, you get f*ck, so I think doing good deeds is wiser, am I right ? what you think ?

    Not trying to offend you here, but technology is holding back the ability of nature to weed out the "less capable" humans.

    I might've been dead too if i were born in 1690, but i feel it would be necessary in order to improve the human race instead of getting weaker like we are doing right now.

    Currently i'm living in a relatively rich country with advanced technology.
    The thing is, i'm seeing more and more kids who take pills (antidepressants, vitamins,....) almost everyday in order to live a normal life.

    A few years ago i had this girl in my class who was allergic to.... the sun.
    Everytime the sun was shining, she demanded to pull the curtains.
    You can't imagine how annoyed i was by that.

    In my home country, i didn't even know an allergy like that existed.
    I never even saw a kid who took pills.
    And if you had a very serious disease, then you'd probably be dead because there was only 1 doctor in each town and they were shit.

    Coincidence? Perhaps.
    But i'm guessing the modern country's inhabitants are getting weaker, as the people who should be dead aren't and they keep on reproducing , so their children are possibly carying over their parents disease.

    Correct, imagine sitting under a big tree on a hill with beautiful view, birds on the tree, we get up, enjoy delicious apple from the tree.Then starts working a natural work, healthy work, not staring and destroying eye, meet people while working, I believe people were honest and good in those days, there are bad ones but the ratio should be alot lesser then today.

    You know, honesty is something really great, we can trust people, nobody try to sell us shit like IM ebooks.

    PS:Something we might forgot is we are a living being created to do a natural work, we should be strong doing farming or whatever in 1690 then working on chair with technologies.Its not just excercise, but alot of natural things effect us without we know, you know, rain sound make us feel some way, I believe people understand birds and cows in those days.

    I think advance life is not bad, but maybe we need god to come on earth and show us and scare us a little bit, the world is becoming bad and its because of the knowledge today, we think there is no god and doing bad is ok, I don't know if there is no god and whether doing bad is ok, but if everyone do bad and its ok, then this world is bad, I'm not saying don't do bad because I will probably do it online and you can too, I don't even consider bad, I'm talking about world and not myself or yourself, unlike people in the past, today people understand psychology and easily exploit who don't understand.

    Well, whatever, we can't choose to live in 1690, but lets talk about whether those authorities are doing right ? I mean, who is controlling this world ? Are they doing right ? I mean, if we want we can do it, anything, What is exciting thing to do that is possible ? Well, we can gather all the people (each and everyone) from around the world to 1 continent, I'm talking scientifically, physically or whatever, but everything is possible right, if its not possible, then its because its other people not agreeing.So, everything is possible scientifically, physically, mentally, logically etc..

    Well, lets solve global warming problems, every problems can be solve.

    I see tv channels talking about planting trees and closing off lights to save energy, but every people on tv don't really know what is really the problem.I read, more than 70% (rougly) of energy comes from coal, petroleum, and less than 30% using (roughly) using free energy resources like wind, water, solar etc, I mean, the world authority can order it right to use only free resources but they won't do it.I don't know how exactly to explain this or maybe I don't really understand this world, maybe I don't understand everything, but its like they are saying, money is everything kids, they'r promoting money in theory, and money can do anything.I am sure if there are any kind of authorities, are governments the most authority or something bigger, I mean, who controls the world ? If there is no one and each have their own subject to control, then that means anyone with money or knowledge can exploit the world.I mean, there is really no one to control this world.

    Just want to think textually little bit.

    ROFL. You think because I had asthma as a kid I'm a "less capable human"?? What a steaming pile of bullshit.

    Anyway, it was a theoretical question that obviously went way over your head. Either that or you're the type of guy that takes everything he reads far too seriously.

    Anybody who thinks it would be better to live in 1690 is an absolute idiot for one reason - no possible relief from pain or disease once you get ill. You die in agony. That's pretty much the main point although there are many more points that reach the same conclusion.

    A better title would have been 1930 vs. 1990, that would be more difficult to decide upon.
