We somehow manage to transport a person to the future or perhaps somebody from our time was transported back to the past, say we showed them all our technology, what we knew and what we could do and have done. How do you think people would've reacted during the 1500's? What would people have thought and felt about what the world was like today? I'd imagine it would be loud for them, too many colors and smells that would overload their senses in a bad way. The technology we have would certainly terrify them - we can create an explosive that can wipe out a small country, we fly birds that can travel faster than one's words would reach another's ears, we have a tiny device that has virtually every piece of information, knowledge and tool available to almost anyone at any time that we can place in a pocket or a bag. The great cities we've built would make them wonder if we were Gods or perhaps his angels, maybe this would make them think they died and went to heaven and that this is what it's like. Our music, humor and hobbies would likely completely baffle them. I don't even know how people would even begin to understand the most simplest of our technology and not run away from it all in fear. What do you guys think?
