On My Side - We're All Mad Here
You can tell I'm mad because I have straw in my hair.

On My Side
I'm not sure this is reversible.

I think I've got them all worked out now, though. Linking up every iteration of myself wasn't easy, and there were definitely some problems with the early experiments. The ocean is impassable to someone without a boat, after all. Traveling in it is no harder than traveling in the third dimension; it's just a matter of finding the right vehicle. Time is just another dimension. The basic concept is simple.

The perspective this gives me is immense. Hindsight is 20/20, even more so when considered from a variety of viewpoints -- and I have them all. They're all mine, of course, but I'm as different from myself sixty years ago as anyone I'm ever likely to meet. I have a lifetime of experience available at every point on my timeline.

My recall is perfect. My precognition is crippling.

There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. There are problems. But they're relatively minor, and I'm sure I'll work them out in time.

I am a collective intelligence. It's -- there are no words to describe it. I'm not godlike, but I am a civilization unto myself now. No, more: an entire race. I've taken Zeno's deli slicer to my life. I vastly outnumber all of the humans that have ever lived.

I have achieved infinity! I have achieved stasis. All of my time is open to me, and frozen. It's like I can travel anywhere in the world, and see only photographs of it when I arrive there. I think it's a fair trade. I think I like it. I think I have my entire life to decide.

I'm not sure this is reversible.

Did I already say that?

it seems strangely fitting that I read this during watching The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
