My friends and I have always had a fun game we play, where we imagine what we’d do if we were thrust backward in time.
So you’re like dropped in Rome at 1 BC, or Britain in 1300. What would you do?
We’re ignoring language, but that’s important too of course.
You know all these technologies are possible, but do you know how to tell anyone? So I’m making this post to keep my skills up—just in case.
Here’s a list of things I think we would want to be able to explain and/or build.
- Printing Press
- Germ Theory
- Maxwell’s Equations
- Laws of Thermodynamics
- Newton’s Laws of Motion
- Steam Engine
- Combustion Engine
What am I missing?
I’m going to keep updating this post. I’m going to answer each one in as simple terms as possible.
