Conscious related issues in Sci Fi

Total Recall - Ego Trip

Is life an ego trip? Is it an individualized version of an ego trip of God's, or one of our own?
If we realize Total Recall what will it mean?
Who is doing the recalling, or will be doing the recalling?
Who is the real You, who are the real We?

Inner Light Revisited

I have been thinking about Picard in The Inner Light and wondered what it would be like if the event happened in his infancy.

Imagine he is less than a year old. The probe transports him into another life where he is the same age, and has a new mother and a new family. He grows up into adulthood, has a family and becomes a grandparent. He dies, the whole event took all of 20 minutes and his consciousness returns back to his original consciousnesss, back to the same age and same family.

Star Trek - The Inner Light

Star Trek - The Inner Light is one of my favourite episodes, because it is so evocative about the nature of awareness, the nature of life and consciousness itself. It is a story about Picard, who is transported not so much physically, but in terms of his whole consciousness into another life, into another place in the past in which he lives as a different person. He has a wife, he has a family, he begets a grandchild and lives a full family life.
