No, you actually create an alternate timeline in which you'd have no recollection of why you wanted to go back in time, but when you stepped out of your time machine in your original timeline you'd still remember everything. But only you would remember.

I had the wierdest dream this morning about having gone back in time 10 years. I'm sure it's because of reading the latest LCs, and a conversation on FB where I said that if I could go back and do things differently, I would... So what would I do differently...

1. I would have the cojones to ask out the girl who used to come into the videostore where I worked who was definitely interested in me (I was just too chicken**** to act on it)

That would put me in a relationship at the time when I was single, so I would behave differently on a tattoo forum, and likely then not get glandular fever. That would mean that I would continue working in an office for a bit longer (although that company would still eventually close) so I would take up the offer to learn how to tattoo, which would mean that when the office closed, I would simply become a tattoo artist. If life was then to be 'stable', I would likely remain in my home town with Laura (can't remember her surname, but that's probably for the best, as it prevents facebook contact) with a stable career, and all my friends around me...

Yes, I would willingly give up my current life/family/relationship to have that alternate life. The last 10 years would have been much easier...

I had a fall in the bad weather so I was unavailable

and yes there is a strong possibility that removal of the Persian empire from history would create lasting global peace

its only a theory of course

Another popular one is that to prevent wars you have to prevent the Existance of the concept of nation

By removing the historical precedent which gave others the idea? I can see the logic behind that...

But I think this would be the primary route. Only problem is that Humans are clannish and tribal by nature, with a seemingly inbuilt dislike of 'otherness', so that might be a much harder tendency to engineer out of the species, rather than 'simply' erasing an empire by changing the outcome of a major battle...

yep recovering well

and yes the idea is to remove the template

almost all later wars were people copying the Persians


personally I have often thought the best way to bring world peace would be to spread us out so wide we almost never saw each other
