If you ever feel like being a part of an internalized process of a person sitting down and thinking what they would tell themselves in the future, then there’s Random FutureMe.

It’s as close as we get at this point in time to reading someone’s mind. There’s honesty, and self-deception, humour and tradgedy and outright delirium there. And there are those who enjoy gaming the system and breaking the fourth wall. That’s fun too (especially the ones who claim to be time travellers with important information for their future / past selves — yes, it’s confusing).

Try it yourself, if you like. Send your future self an email from the present and your eventual past. It’s your choice if you want to make it private, or public (but anonymous).
