Given the following:
- Aging is no longer a problem, people live as long as they wish.
- Working is no longer necessary.
- You have access to perfect customisable VR technology.
Do you think at any stage in this type of future, that you would erase your current memories; your personality, and start again in a custom virtual world? A world of your design let's say. Anything that you could imagine, be it your current life with some "corrections" or a completely fantastical life, set in some mythical dream arena of your own making. Before returning to the real world thereafter with your new experiences added to your previous thoughts?
I think that I would. I've often fantasised about re-living my own life again with prior knowledge, or living our reality but with some cosmic and life changing events tossed into the mix. Aside from being a very long lived and vivid form of recreation, this could also force us to evolve our personalities, it would be hard to ignore another persons perspective through life if you had been that person.
What do you think? Is this too weird to be possible?
