Thanks to historians, we have a whole new bucket list we would want to check items off. A list of historical events that we would most definitely want to witness firsthand. Like when the Stonehenge were built. Or, when Da Vinci painted his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.
1. Construction of the Stonehenge
For centuries, historians have racked their brains on how the Stonehenge came into being. While some believe it was the work of aliens, others speculate that it was built by a wizard named Merlin. We bet, everyone who’s mesmerised by the Stonehenge would want to go back in time to see how it was built and with what purpose.
2. The birth of Adam and Eve
The first man and woman to have fallen on Earth after committing the original sin. It would be quite a spectacle to watch God create Adam and then fashion Eve out of his ribs. Also, to be able to take a stroll in the garden of Eden would definitely be a bonus.
3. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s disappearance
Netaji’s death, till date, remains shrouded in mystery with several conspiracy theories attached to it. What really happened after Netaji’s flight took off from Taipei to Tokyo? No one can say for sure how, when and where he disappeared and we would like to find out.
4. Watching an original Shakespearean play
Oh, to watch an original Shakespearean play would be a dream come true! Watching Hamlet or Romeo and Juliet live would be nothing short of incredible. Who knows, maybe we would also get a glimpse of the Bard himself!
5. The moon landing
Neil Armstrong said, “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Half the world watched man land on the moon live but no one witnessed it in person. Maybe by travelling back in time – and to the moon – we can help clear up all the conspiracies that surround the moon landing.
6. Watching ancient Greek Olympics
Whilethe modern Olympics date back to 1896, in truth, they go back centuries to ancient Greece. Athletic competitions were held in ancient Greece in the city of Olympia. Women were not allowed to compete and the men who did, did so naked.
7. Meeting India’s ancient Illuminati
Believe it or not, India had its own version of the mysterious secret society, the Illuminati. Known as the “Nine Unknown Men”, the society, according to legend, was founded by Asoka. Each man carried a book of knowledge on different subjects such as time travel and propaganda to microbiology and psychological warfare. No one knew about their identities and it is believed that their society exists even today.
8. Watching the Wright brothers fly the world’s first plane
The Wright brothers made history with their one-of-a-kind invention of an airplane. What many don’t know, however, is that Wilber Wright and Orville Wright did a coin toss to decide who would fly the plane first. They took four flights on that historic day, until a gust of wind toppled their plane and damaged it. Nonetheless, history was made and it’s worth witnessing first hand.
9. Visiting the Kongka La Pass UFO base
Situated in Ladakh, many believe that the Kongka La Pass is not only inaccessible but also home to a UFO base. Locals and tourists alike claim to haveseen UFOs in the area. The mystery remains and we won’t mind travelling back to the era when the base came into being.
10. Watching Leonardo Da Vinci paint the Mona Lisa
Who would pass the chance to see Da Vinci paint the world’s most recognisable painting? Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa may hang in the Louvre today, but the artist painted the masterpiece between 1503 and 1519, during the time he lived in Florence. Witnessing the artist at work would also solve a couple of mysteries for us – such as the identity of his muse and the reason behind Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile.
11. Solving the disappearance of MH370
This is perhaps the most recent, most disastrous historical event that didn’t accord the world the closure it needed. The fact that a modern airplane simply disappeared led to several conspiracy theories. Was the plane hijacked? Did Vladimir Putin mastermind its capture? Going back in time and solving the modern day’s biggest mystery doesn’t seem such a bad idea.
These were just some of the historic moments we would like to see in person. There are a thousand others, sprawled across the pages of time. We think it’s time for Elon Musk to build us a time travel machine.
