Writer's Block: Beam me up, Scotty

If you could be transported anywhere in the world, at any point in time, where and when would would you choose to live, and why?


Jena, between 1793-1795. I'd love to be there when all those great minds in German Idealism were doing their thing. Catching one of Fichte's lectures, or even just eavesdropping on some of the conversations between Hegel, Schelling and Hoelderlin would be amazing. I would also like to know what Hoelderlin and Novalis talked about when they met. Amazing.
