Backward Time Travel...
Visiting, on a golden day of Indian summer, Toronto's fantastic Black Creek Pioneer Village, a living 30-acres open-air museum with a collection of 19th-century buildings and artefacts, and becoming immersed in the lifestyles, customs, and surroundings of early residents who built the foundations for modern Ontario ("Yours to Discover").

“It may be interesting for you to know that most Canadians in 2036 CE are some of the most efficient, ruthless and dangerous people I know…"
Time-travelling together with our number-one daughter Ulrike and our three awesome Canadian grandchildren Raoni, Tien and Ronja, stepping through the automatic gate of the heritage museum in lieu of a traversable wormhole, entering the early-to-mid-19th century and arriving at an inhabited pioneer village, which consists of over forty historical buildings, decorated in the style of the 1860s with period furnishings (admission for non-aliens and aliens: C$ 15.- per adult, C$ 14.- per senior, C$ 11.- per child).

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.”

Following the country kid's animal trail through the village's herb garden, the weaver's dye garden and the doctor's medicinal garden, spending time in the apple orchard, encountering en-route (i) long-wooled Border Leicester sheep, (ii) tall Clydesdale horses, (iii) docile Hereford cows, (iv) popular Ridley Bronze turkeys and (v) ponderous Toulouse geese, and learning how early farmers cared for the animals and used them for food, transportation, and clothing.

Meeting the tinsmith, the blacksmith, the cider miller, the saddler and the shepherd in their traditional working environment and watching them doing their work holistically with their hearts, their heads and their hands.

Zeitreisen sind kinderleicht! Entscheidend ist, dass Ihr die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft in ganz vielen Einzelheiten und bunten Farben in Euren Koepfen praezise erleben koennt. Und je mehr feine und konkrete Unterschiede (sogenannte submodalities) Ihr dabei seht, hoert, fuehlt, riecht und schmeckt, desto spannender wird es. Selbst anderen Zeitreisenden koennt Ihr unterwegs begegnen. Dazu sind irgendwelche Zeitmaschinen, mit oder ohne Fahrradsattel, voellig ueberfluessig, wenn nicht sogar gaenzlich untauglich. Lebendige Traeume, gefuehlvolle Maerchen und phantastische Geschichten ermoeglichen es Euch, weit in die Vergangenheit und weit in die Zukunft zu reisen, dort interessante Orte und Landschaften zu besuchen und unbekannte oder auch bekannte Menschen zu treffen, z.B. Euch selber, als Ihr noch juenger wart, oder Euch selber, so wie Ihr in 20 Jahren einmal aussehen werdet… - Welche Berufe werdet Ihr dann wohl ausueben?
From the People's Republic of Canada, with Love!
