What would it be like to be reborn with all the memories of your previous life intact?


You'd be able to solve higher math problems while still a baby. Parents and educators would be astonished by you. They'd also probably fear you.


You'd see childish social situations from an adult perspective. If kids teased you, you'd recognize it as an attempt to gain the approval of peers at your expense, and it wouldn't bother you. Being more mentally and emotionally mature than the other kids, you'd never make friends.


You'd avoid childish mistakes, but you'd still make the more sophisticated mistakes to which adults are prone. And with a prior lifetime's worth of mistakes also in your memory, the weight of living would grow heavier and heavier.


What an odd child you'd make.
