Your very own time machine

I recently invented a fun way to look at old pictures I happen on in books, magazines, onscreen, wherever.

By old I mean since I was born.

I imagine myself as I was then being in the scene — invisible to everyone else — taking it all in: I then mentally watch a movie of myself being there.

Sure, you can Photoshop yourself into any picture or Deepfake a video such that it looks real but where's the fun in that?

By doing it in your head, if you've got a good visual imagination you can get a much more realistic sense of yourself there.

Try it, you might like it.

Related: when you happen on a date in a biography or history or their ilk, picture yourself as you were back then.

If you're not completely satisfied with the results, let me know and I'll cheerfully refund twice the amount of your life and time I wasted.
