Remember Quantum Leap?
“Theorizing that one could time travel within their own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap Accelerator… And VANISHED.”
This was a story about a guy who would jump into a point in other people’s lives, needing to “put right what once went wrong” in order to try “leaping” again to get to the point where he could get home. At one point, he leaped into his OWN life at the age of 16, trying to save his father’s life among other things.
So, here is the question: if you had the opportunity to leap back into your own life to any age you wished, being who you are now and retaining all the knowledge you have now, and then just live forward from that point until your natural death, would you do it?
The most common objection to this goes something like, “but my life experiences have made me who I am!” Yes, that’s sort of the point. You retain all of that. You would be a 25 year old (or 30 year old, or however old you are now) in the body of a 10 year old or 20 year old or whatever. But now, you get the opportunity to make different choices with the benefit of hindsight.
Shallow lulz to be considered for this: at the VERY least, you could get fabulously wealthy by investing in Google.
