I highly doubt that. Sure, you could teach them enough to be like the 20th century, but the 20th century also had several other improvements as well (namely, the ability to build homes and skyscrapers and communications systems and all that happy **** ). Knowing how to build something and having the capability to build it are two different things. Unless you plan on bringing back an army of construction engineers and heavy equipment, there is simply no way you could develop the tools necessary before the "super generation" dies off...

And, as anyone who knows about early humans will tell you, finding food and shelter comes first, and learning new things second. Which is why we didn't start to make any sort of significant leaps in higher intelligence until we got the whole 'building shelter' and 'farming' **** down... So unless you can provide the early humans with the tools to do that, they will immediately forget whatever you teach them in favor of more useful skills such as not dying of starvation...

Just saying.

1.) Okay, that's assuming you get them all to trust you and not assume you are aliens or some **** .
2/3.) Exactly. You need to invent the hammer to invent the forge to invent machinery (and refining techniques, cause you can't use plain ore to build skyscrapers), etc. etc. Your best bet would be to just bring back all the equipment with you, rather than having to go through the process of making one invention after another. But, even if you DO bring all the machinery back, skyscrapers still take years to build, each. Not counting the time it takes to train everyone. In order to get anywhere near the 20th century you would literally need an army of engineers just to build everything, because by the time you train all the early humans to do that your super generation will be dead. Though, being able to build skyscrapers would be a pretty significant leap all by itself, so not a total loss there...
4.) You're missing the point. Simple huts and farming allowed for some learning, but it didn't allow for much because it still took a lot of time to farm and maintain the shelter. The reason we have learned so much in so little time (took us, what, 100,000 years to get fire, but only took us under 100 to go from grounded to exploring space) is because as we progress farming and maintaining shelter takes less and less of our total productivity as a race away from important **** like learning and inventing.

Simply put, your plan WOULD advance the human race very significantly, but it still takes time. No amount of intelligence can change the fact that building a single skyscraper still takes years even if you already have all the supplies and workers set to go. You would need_ at least_ a few generations of super humans to advance the human race from cave dwelling to 20th century.

amazing! but this would change the known present and future as we know it, and you and your top IQ people would be the only ones who knew that it happened...

But if you changed the past in such a drastic manner, you would either a) not exist or b) be the dumbest human in existence.

actually, the not existing thing is a big possibility... i forgot about that paradox
#530 to #517 - gmarrox (02/12/2012) [-]
Logically, you would have to exist. If you didn't exist you could have never gone back in time and possibly erased your own existence. Also, if you never went back in time, you'd still exist. Also, people around you influence you and your life so each person you've ever met, no matter how insignificant, led you to your travel through time and your means of doing so. Therefor, you and anyone you've ever known would exist no matter what.

but its a paradox tho... its like the grandfather paradox, minus the killing
User avatar #552 to #542 - gmarrox (02/12/2012) [-]
It's only a paradox if the things conflict in a way that prevents a definite answer. With time travel, the existence of the time traveler is an inevitability.

that is if they respected you, if you go this far into the future based off you super human theory, then by 2186, the human race will be so advanced, we will probably have discovered how to traverse different dimensions and plane's of existence. and there is the possibility that they laugh in your face for being so intellectually stupid compared to them...
