The real question is; if you could experience any historical period, which would it be? In which case I would go to ancient Athens to hear Socrates speak. Unfortunately I do not understand ancient Greek and it is possible that Socrates didn't actually exist. These questions truly are obtuse. In which case I would go to the London of 1870 to soak up the culture which inspired the creation of Sherlock Holmes.

My answer to the actual question set is that I would gather a large amount of patents and go to London of 1850. I would publish these many patents widely and in large numbers, then return to a far more technologically advanced future. At which point, regardless of paradoxes, I would repeat the process but this time going back to 1900. Then 1950.
