New entertainment "Life: from start to finish"

By 2050 there will be a new leisure activity called "Life: from start to finish." It will go something like this: the participant will be immersed in a state of sleep in which the brain is under the influence of special drugs and neurocomputers, creating a kind of reality inside the person. The sleeping person will not be aware that they are living a different life, and within 2-3 days of normal time they will live an entire life internally. From the cradle to the grave. Special computers will generate the surrounding environment, creating a full life in every respect, Matrix-style. Dying in the internal world will cause the participant to wake up in the real one. Potentially harmful memories of non-existent places or people will be forgotten, but useful skills and knowledge will remain. If the sleeping person “grew up” in a foreign country, for instance, the language, history, and mentality of this virtual homeland will stay with them. Scientific knowhow could be streamed into the mind. It will take the concept of “edutainment” to a new level. Young people having lived a virtual life will be smarter and more mature as a result. They will be less rash and understand the consequences of their actions. What’s more, there will various levels of difficulty for people from all walks of life. They will be able to select lives that vary greatly in terms of complexity and challenges. Perhaps we’re already playing it right now?

Gavin Ray I like the idea of streaming knowledge straight to the brain and retaining it, however it doesn't seem right for someone to live a full life then having all memory of it removed. I understand the principles and I agree sounds great but something inside me just thinks it is wrong. Might just be that I've watched to many sci-fi movies though. 26 Mar 2019
Bradley It may be possible, but I'm not sure whether people will back it up. It seems like playing God a bit too much. Then again people will probably have a more relaxed view towards it by 2050. 10 Mar 2019
