Do you think science will  give us this possibility one day? Imagine to delate temporary you adult memories and returning with the body side of a child again. Then when you reach your puberty, you implant againg your entire memories back.

 

what do you think of this? I think in a definite life prespective it could be done.

I don't have to return to my childhood 'cause I'm already in it. But I'm sure such a technology will exist someday. With virtual reality and things, shouldn't be too difficult.

ARADIA: i think i mostly want to see what happens when this whole place breaks apart

I just bid my childhood goodbye (unless you count college as the end of childhood, at which point I'm just a month away from it), so going back to it wouldn't be too important for me at this present juncture.  I'd need a few more decades to realize I wasted my childhood and then a few more beyond that to use the VR tech that would realize my despair. 


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

I'm already in childhood..

 

I'm EAGER to age faster and go to college and get a job. School is freaking easy

and I think adult life would be a LOT better.

It is mindless anti-government idiocy. If it isn't turned back I predict the end of this country as a world power. Simply put the need to educate our entire population like any sane country is sen as wrong by the cult that practice this foolish idiocy. So is simple workers rights, child labor and every other sane policy of the modern world."

The only reason I would want to experience it again (which, it is going to end in exactly one week on the 21st) is to see family friends again, maybe my dad when he wasn't a retard.

 

Unfortunately technology can't make my time travel back to then and re-live it.

 

So I would have to say no.  I will have to make better friends in the future to replace what I want back from my childhood.  I am totally content being independent and being allowed to do whatever I want, not age restricted. 

 

 

Seriously, what is it exactly you want out of reliving childhood?


Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

Unless you know exactly what you want to do, and how to get there, working life really isn't that great. That being said, even if you know what you want to do there is no guarantee you will get there. 

 

My advice to anyone under 18... enjoy it while it lasts, adult life is very difficult in comparison.

Lack of responsibility? Less things to worry about? Greater innocence / naivety? I suppose it is not like this for most people, but my parents were always extremely flexible & I could mostly do what I wanted to after around the age of 15.

Also the sense of wonder

In my opinion if you erase your memories, even temporarily, then you're not the same person. If you have a new body and keep none of your old memories, how can you be considered the same person? I would rephrase that question as "Would you like to merge your mind with the mind of a teenager?".

I think in the future the concept of person and individuality may change. in the sense that we may duplicate ourself and be in more than one place at the same time, we may also erase our memories for a while and then reintegrate them. But i am only theorizing.

I would do it but I wouldn't want to lose my memories. How does that saying go, something like, "Childhood is wasted on children."  The entire appeal of going back to your childhood is so that you can apply all the stuff you have learned.

I'd like to time travel and be in my actual body as it was when I was a child, so I can literally relive being a child. It would be amazing, lol!

This is an interesting premise. With advanced enough technology, why COULDN'T you wipe or block your memories, create a child body, and put your brain in it? 

 

This would be of interest to people who had bad childhoods and wanted a re-do.

I totally agree. I've also suggested in the past that posthumans could go on missions where they undergo temporary amnesia and plug into the Matrix (for lack of a better term) to play roles in ancestor simulations designed to improve our understanding of history (are we doing this right now?). Part of the appeal might be being able to have childhoods again and again.

Maybe this will be an option for suicidal people. Sign your name at the bottom of the form, and have your memories and personality wiped and your brain inserted into a new child body, to be raised by adoptive parents screened for good character.

I would like to go on a process of reverse-aging and body enhancements. The farthest that I would like to reverse age is probably 19 or 18, in the most extreme stretch i can see myself biologically reverse age to 15 or 16 but never younger than that. but then again, id be happy with a bioage of 19 or 20 for as long as technology allows. However i would like to keep my memories as it is and of course some other aesthetic, intelligence, performance and other health enhancements. I would still like to be viewed as a 100 year old person with a youthful body.

The past year and a half has been hell, I'd be pretty happy to be 19 again. 16 would also be okay though the lack of freedom would probably get on my nerves. I don't think there are any other ages I'd like to return to.

I'd like to go back the 90's ;) Get me the fucking hell out of the 2020. What a disappointment is the way I'd describe this decade to anyone ask in the 90's..
