We just finished watching Outlander which is about a woman who goes back in time ~200 years from the end of WWII. She ends up in the Scottish highlands in the middle of the Jacobite uprising. It's a great show although the last episodes were a little graphic (they make Game of Thrones seem like Sesame Street).
But it got me thinking ... if you went back in time would you in fact be the 'god' you may imagine because of your knowledge of modern technology and the future?
We like to think we're advanced because we have lots of technology but besides putting batteries in a remote and plugging things in are we really that knowledgable? Would skills such as making fires and catching game be more useful to have?
How about the history - we tend to learn about the "big" events but how would that help us in day-to-day life and is there a chance, as in the show, that we could be mistaken for a witch?
The reality is that our society is advanced but we are mostly just along for the ride. We think we're advanced but if we went back in time would we struggle?
