A reshuffled life

I hope there's a digital version, sounds interesting.

read -->A reshuffled life

In his book Sum, David Eagleman imagines a life where like activities are grouped into chunks and then never experienced again.

In the afterlife you relive all your experiences, but this time with the events reshuffled into a new order: all the moments that share a quality are grouped together.

You spend two months driving the street in front of your house, seven months having sex. You sleep for thirty years without opening your eyes. For five months straight you flip through magazines while sitting on a toilet.

You take all your pain at once, all twenty-seven intense hours of it. Bones break, cars crash, skin is cut, babies are born. Once you make it through, it's agony-free for the rest of your afterlife.

But that doesn't mean it's always pleasant. You spend six days clipping your nails. Fifteen months looking for lost items. Eighteen months waiting in line.

This is crying out to be put on a poster or tshirt. (via bobulate)
