@Mehrocco_Mole Nope don’t want to travel with Dr. Who (well time travel would be fun, but not for the outer space adventure - I’d go on a different adventure with him/her). I want to look out the window and see what is in space as we travel through.
Be a fly on the wall per se. Hear what your friends talk about, be everywhere people think no one is listening to hear the details of their secrets. Its endless to watch, and hear. And be at MEH headquarters to watch…
As a body-less orb unaffected by pressure or gravity, I’d visit what is nearby, first. Land, the ocean, see the sights. As to space, it is pretty vast. Unless travel is near instantaneous, it is going to take a long, long time just to see the planets in our solar system, let alone another star system or the nearest galaxy
So what if you can breathe anywhere. Does temperature affect you? If so your choices are limited. Let’s ask more complete hypothetical questions. To answer your incomplete question, I would bemoan Michigan’s loss to Florida while consolingly telling @chadp that the Irish have a chance next year when I know they really don’t.
It doesn’t say anything about rapid transportation or immortality. So outer space is out. I’d want to visit places on earth where no human has gone anyway, anywhere on earth is likely to be more interesting than space. The heart of a volcano, the deepest ocean trenches, ancient forests, unscalable mountains, nature’s secret places.
So many questions.
Do I need to eat, sleep, take a shower? If I need to sleep, is there a way to attach myself to something? (Or there could be whole new shades of meaning to “starting to drift off” to sleep.) How fast can I move? Do I have a means of propulsion and some kind of guidance system? Do I have eyes, ears, mouth? ARMS? Or am I just a blob which cannot manipulate the environment or talk to anyone? Do I look edible to anything like a shark or Komodo dragon? AM I edible? How big am I, and could I be mistaken for a skeet?
Answers. I need answers!
I would be sorely tempted to be the invisible fly on the wall with a video recorder at various city and county ‘off the record’ meetups among the connected, to bring a little much needed transparency and fresh air to (one of) the most corrupt city and county governments in the nation.
Assuming I could somehow wrangle a video recorder of any kind…
