Future Self

There is evidence that envisaging our 'future self' can improve our ability to make decisions about the future. Perhaps this principle is transferable to other future perspectives?

Folk tend to make better decisions about the future if they've seen their 'older self'. As an example, you could try the list below, or google search for a variety of others, to actually see your older self morphed by AI (although note possible personal data consequences of sharing your image!).

Rob Hopkins points out that imagining yourself in the future as different makes you more able to become that different person.
