Conversations with self

There is one unusual superpower that I would love for to have. It’s not x-ray vision, or super strength, or flight, but I want it.

I would like to be able to have conversations with myself at different ages. Maybe a nice chat with ten year old me, or with eighty year old me.

It would probably be necessary to build rules around the use of such a super power. For example, older me shouldn’t be able to talk to younger me about future world events. That could lead to complications.

But other than that, it would be great to check in, and to learn about the ever shifting relationship between identity and time. I wouldn’t be surprised if I learned something surprising.

    I had this thought once and came to the conclusion that having a written account of your thoughts is probably the closest thing we can do to achieving this feat. Maybe an obvious conclusion but another reason for you to continue this blog 🙂
