So, I was meditating and something hit me, a question that I myself am still trying to figure out. Say if someone made a booth, with all your physical needs in it such as a waste system, self bathing, food, water through IV, etc, that created a life outside of the one you live. Like you live a whole new life within that booth, live a wide range of possibilities, and you have the chance to relive your life. But you can not leave the booth unless you are sure that this is not the life you wished for. This was only meant for a glimpse, but you could choose to stay in the booth for the rest of your physical life. Your body ages yet the imagined reality version of you, does not. You risk seeing your death happen as a young man/woman/other rather than aging gracefully. And the one stipulation to this; if your loved ones have not joined another booth, you would live your life without them, but you face a whole new way of life here. Which would you choose? the life you live now, or an imagined life where you'll never be criticized for your actions? Personally, I think I'd rather live the life I am now. Yeah, that booth idea sounds like it'd be a riot, but what kind of life would that be? Think about it. I mean, you live a careless free life of nothing but success, and you'd probably make new friends there. But what about the life you lived here, better or for worse? Living in an imagined world seems to be a wish come true, but we often times forget the good in our lives until it it too late to go back and fix it.
