I don't think it'd be right for the universe of the character, frankly.

I'm wary of the idea of time travel as well. It throws everything into doubt, regardless of how we might have wished things were different. Playing with time sets a precedent for nothing ever being final. It also sucks the emotion out of any death.

Good point, Montana, but on the other hand, if done right, time travel could be a very interesting subject. Granted, it's difficult as hell to pull off convincingly, but if they did, it would be very cool. Especially if Indy traveled back thousands of years and got to interact with certain mythical people, setting things straight, righting wrongs, helping out famous historical figures, before returning to his present time.

Why is that attractive, though, outside of some Saturday morning cartoon context where the emphasis is on churning out vaguely appropriate stories to tell rather than working with historical and mythological elements within a given timeframe of the 20th century? Seems like you can't get much more removed from Indy's actual vocation as an archaeologist than having him righting ancient wrongs.

Especially considering that Indy spends a lot of time wronging the rights of the ancients. Until the Young Indy series he wasn't much of a role model, and that was a major attraction to the character. (As was the character of Han Solo to my formative imagination).

Something that isn't so boringly complicated it sends the audience into a coma would be a good idea.

This is one of those ill-formed ideas possibly more worth throwing out than throwing out into the arena, but perhaps there's something primordial about the dial and its shape. Maybe it hearkens back to a much, much earlier time.

The Staircase "Dial"

Hello, i am new here, just entering in this interesting brainstorming, our Lab set it as Scavenger Hunt, based on the Dial of Ahaz hunting the Hidden dimension.

Well, Prophet and/or message from the master written during civilisation come to others to be decrypted. The Time Machine of Ahaz based message have two clear words: degrees and step.

About degrees, as the shadow cannot go back 10 degrees, lets simulate it with geo-browser and use longitude and latitude, back from Hezekiah's Pool, located in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. The pool is supposed to be the one referred to in 2 Kings 18:17, and there is a belief that this is the upper pool where King Hezekiah, King of Judah, met messengers from the king of Assyria and the the prophet Isaiah: Coordinate: Longitude: 35.228997, Latitude: 31.776960, Altitude (Step): 0;

About step, lets use that words as altitude and/or third dimension to see things. ( The Staircase "Dial" , as astronomer Edward Walter Maunder)

Based on that hypothesis we think that Jerusalem & Hezekiah's Pool is Ground Zero.

Geographic-data-coordinate : starting point of G-Spot Narrative.
Coordinate Hezekiah's Pool: Longitude: 35.228997, Latitude: 31.776960, Altitude: 0
By the Hypothesis: Ten degrees back on Latitude and Longitude. For each coordinate I increase both or the single data as below:
Hezekiah's Pool. The Ambassadors: 35.228997,31.776960,0
Ten Step Back. North: 25.228997,21.776960,0
Ten Step South: 45.228997,41.776960,0
Ten Step East: 25.228997,41.776960,0
Ten Step West: 45.228997,21.776960,0
Winter Solstice Sunset: 45.228997,31.776960,0
Winter Solstice Sunrise: 25.228997,31.776960,0
Summer Solstice Sunrise 35.228997,21.776960,0
Summer Solstice Sunset 35.228997,41.776960,0

Well, I invite you to explore with google earth plugin on G-Spot website the geometrical evolution of that theory, that shaw earth can be a time machine reality show. ( http://gspot.bugs3.com/sundial/node/54 )
