I've always had this thought for a long time. What if everyone in history, present and ongoing future had your mindset. Where would we be today? Engulfed in war or light years ahead? Progressive or regressive?

Of course one couldn't gauge and determine what the world would be like on the fly. I have just found the idea interesting. How would some inventions follow? Would they be in the same level of succession or would the indeterminate or predecessor inventions be scattered from our current set up?

If one day a program was developed to estimate based on our individual brains to determine what the world would have been like, a world of you.

I'm not talking clones here but I hope you get my drift.

Like me, for example? That would be scary.

I often(not always) appreciate other's much more than myself.

The world would be in a constant state of bipolar manic depressiveness.

We would be sleepless/anxious artists.
Maintaining a journal would be mandatory.
Sarcasm would be the language of choice.
Waffles woukd be the national food.
And valium would fall like rain every 4-6 hours.

This is totally progressive.

I was just thinking about this notion and also had the thought to start a thread about it. Very interesting concept...

So each one who has the capability to populate a world with people just like them, what would the results be of that world? We wpuld parent ourselves, we would be siblings to ourselves, we would marry ourselves, we would make decisions based on our surroundings and interactions with ourselves, we would get medical treatment from people who are just like us, people like us would be building our homes, providing government, hunting and gathering, farming / killing meat.....

Would everyone have our same body or just our demeanor? Would we at least be given the curve ball of different types of physical/mental  challenges unique to a sole person or will we born equally, effected only by the circumstances of our fetal environments.  Hmmm these are just questions you made me think of but I dont have any answers yet. Ill come back.

Great topic. :)

With my tendency to procrastinate, we'd not have made much progress at all.

I do know that we would sleep a lot and that not everything would be taken so seriously. There would be a lot of bird lovers and nature walks. I really dont think there would be a lot of wars because I would teach myself at a young age about getting along with others, I think the notion of justice is natural for me. But a problem could come along for example if one of me had a lot of additional stress, accidents befalled them (of course I wouldn't purposely hurt one of myselves) that may spiral into another direction. But I do believe my compassion will outweigh even those events and I would be able to reel them back in. We would be very forgiving toward one another and also very forgetful. I have a feeling a lot of us would drink tea or smoke tea leaves.. life would be very poetic and we wouldn't be nearly as advanced in technology or medicine or science... but that would be ok, there would be less sickness on the whole because there would be less stress....

I think my world would be hella fun...

The more I think about this the more I actually want to do it. I feel like if I could spread myself amoung myself I could accomplish all that I ever wanted and I could try things out in a variety of ways. I would hope to be in charge of some central brain that could gain from all of myselves endeavors... it would be magnificent. We would have our own language and writing system, musical instruments, probably some dabbles in the magical arts, print making, fashion, ornamental hairstyles would be big, jewelry, cooking... we would eat a lot of spicy food. Our houses might be built in the trees and we would swing down from them on ropes in the mornings, we would be strong and healthy and be able to climb back up the ropes in the afternoon....

We might even talk in bird languages like whistling and singing. There would be a lot of singing in the morning as the sun came up, it would be heard all over the land.

Can we assume that they would all know the correct plural form of 'genius' then?   Posted Image

The sexy part takes care of that problem in this world though.
