    Good carnival, Rodney! Actually, I’m pretty open-minded on Q. I was describing Goodacre’s position. But, as I read the post, I should have made that clearer.

    Lots of good stuff to read from these links!

    Is it nice to meet your future self or is it just annoying? I always imagine I would just want to slap myself, and of course I wouldn’t be able to complain because it was only me doing it to myself.

      Future selves can help you make good decisions, like avoiding bad substances or showing you what you can be instead of getting in trouble (the theme for a South Park Episode;the other, the Simpsons before I stopped watching years ago.)
