Every three minutes, everybody on Earth dies:

Is that cake frosting?
And a bunch of different people spawn spontaneously, with the memories of the recently deceased ones.

Time's ticking...
But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

I design worlds. Or, I hope to.

Dang, my clock is two minutes fast. Better die a minute early.

Why every three minutes? You've probably died twice while reading this sentence...

Bye me, Hi me.

It's not really that scary. It's your memories and personality that make a person, right?

This explains why sometimes you suddenly lose your train of thought. You are trying to pick up for the old person with your memories, and it takes you some time occasionally.

Maybe deja vu is the person starting back from the last "checkpoint", or last memory, I suppose. surprised

Banned, selectively
Sort of the next step that follows young earth creationism where the world was created only 6000 years ago but with the fossil record in place just to mess with our minds. If six thousand years ago, why not six minutes, or even three? If fake fossil record, why not fake memories?
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you are probably right.

I prefer the explanation that time travel is the cause of deja vu but whateves man

What happens to the bodies then? Or do the bodies stay as they are, but just get a brand new soul?

This thread is a Mind Screw.
I am the commander of words.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
