Would you?

Postby Rost » 05 Jun 2008, 20:23

were it possible, would you allow someone to completely swap emotions and memories with you and be able to immediately bring up any moment from your past and think about it intimately? the fact you are giving away everything about yourself and letting someone see everything about you - perhaps things you would NEVER want anyone to know - is something you may never do. but think about this. in exchange, you get to have that exact insight into the other person's past and mind, knowing all of their thoughts, feelings, and deepest secrets.

this is something me and the girlfriend were talking about at the zoo yesterday, and i asked her to remind me of the conversation so i could ask all of you. i personally, would definitely do it - with the right person.

Nah I'm pretty weird and pretty harsh in my own mind, and there are some things I'd never ever want anyone to know. Besides I'm not really bothered about knowing anyone else's memories or secrets or w/e.

No. Just no. I have far too many secrets.
Hang on while I repost my blog here in the hope that people have become less uninterested.

Haha. No.

I rarely control my thoughts, and usually just let them go off on their own little paths, thus I have some pretty messed up thoughts and ideas going through my head all the time.

Anyone who saw them would think I was a complete freak.

Is that because you're a "werewolf"? :| Ye... uh no.

I'm not really that bother about it. I don't have a great need to know everything about everyone anyway.

No.. I like letting my thoughts drift off and no matter how mashed up they turn out I know that they mean something in my mind.. I wouldn't be bothered about knowing others secrets or thoughts etc.

No, robots are pretty boring from what i've figured.

But in all seriousness(sp) no, I'm not that curious about someone enough to give away all my thoughts and feelings and past events and emotions. I would just get to know the person on a one to one basis.

The question is: would they want to swap with me?

SRSLY, I have some messed up feels and some highly disturbing memories. I wouldn't want anyone to go through those atrocities to get something I can find out by listening and watching. Therefore, no.

Don't really have any secrets, but I wouldn't want to spill the contents of my mind I'm a pretty fierce individual (not in the sense that I put myself before others). Plus I openly share all my emotions and experiences when I play music.

With the right person, maybe. Then again, probably not. One trip into my head would seriously put them off me... There are things that should stay in my head.

Nope, I'm happy with my own experiences and feel no need to share some with others.

@Rost: I've just heard a brilliant speech and I hope you'll respond when I get the transcript of it (probably tomorrow) and post it in the 'Charities' thread.

I wouldn't like to have it permanently...
But being able to see into someone's past, feeling, seeing who they really are...

A glimpse into some people would be a good idea for me.

Surely if you swapped all thoughts and emotions, you would just be them in your body. You wouldn't learn anything new about them because you are them. Therefore, when you swapped back (if you swapped back), you wouldn't retain any memories from the switch.

Seriously, sit and think about it, and realise how it wouldn't work. You would never be able to have a brain transfer, only a body transfer, if even that were possible.

i have a lot of s**t things id rather no one saw, but on the other hand, i can almost guarantee that whoever they are, so will the other person. so its basically tit for tat, the ultimate deal. there is no way i would refuse the opportunity to do that.


@ Reevys: lighten up, its a hypothetical question.
