and new technology allows you to be re-born again by transferring your consciousness to an embryo which then develops into a baby(dont ask for the specifics I aint that big brained) but the question is.... will you take it?

If I retain the intelligence of myself then yeah straight away. Having a kids body for a while would suck but worth it to delay death by 20 or so years

Hell no. There's a better than evens chance of being born into one of : a communist dictatorship, nutty Islamic state or general poverty. Second time round might not even last that long.

And if the lefties and fems get their way, you might just get aborted before you even get born.

you could assume that they're protocols around aborting it and also you'd only do it anyway if you were really sure you wanted to have a child, but yh I see what you mean with the second thing tho I assume it would be country specific or maybe you could request which country you'd like to be born in

No.
Everywhere i have succeeded, i have enjoyed.
Everywhere i have lost, it is experience.

Good or bad, revisiting identical experiences is dull, no matter the context.

Nah, I'm okay with my 80 years (which will no doubt increase with medicine improving)

Yes and no.
I wouldn't take it in 20 years but I would take it when I have experienced this life fully which I presume is when I am old.

It depends how life is in the future, right now it's difficult but I'm sure everyone is feeling that way so I'm kinda banking on sorting my life out and finally get to live for once. I wouldn't want to throw that chance away and redo the lengthy process again.

To summarize it: no bc cba

No I wouldn't. Who knows what family I would have, what life I would have and what body id have. No, my life isn't perfect but I wouldn't want it any other way.

I have a child body even though I’m a fully grown adult 😊

I have to buy clothes that are for 9-10 years old.

No joke.

Wtf... Is it adult shaped (developed breasts and so on) but child sized or literally just like a child’s? I mean they both sound like they suck but I’m so sorry if it is the latter.

I meant my body shape itself is quite Petite. Therefore I can’t wear normal adult clothes as it will be far too big for me.

I've thought of this scenario on my own too, idk how ppl think so much alike xD And I would obviously take it up without a second of hesitation. You would literally be like the smartest kid in the world, and you would have so much spare time. Basically, kid celebrity

I don't get it. Do you retain your memories? Where are you born - same country?

If I didn't retain any semblance of memory then definitely wouldn't - this planet's problems are only just beginning. Definitely wouldn't if I couldn't guarantee being born in the West.

If I retained memories I mean, presumably you'd still be an embryo, so unable to do anything. Even as a baby you'd be unable to see properly or walk... that'd be a tortuous few years. And then you'd hardly live a normal childhood anyway if you had the mind of an adult. Probably pass on that too tbh - that amount of life extension probably not worth at least 3 years of extreme sensory deprivation and disability.

Or maybe you meant something else from this scenario I don't know!
