  1. I’m worried that someone would come out mentally incapable of life, or they’ve forgotten everything, or they’ll come out with a plan so well thought out since they’ve had 1,000 years of planning

  2. Reminds of the episode from black mirror

  3. This is concerning

  4. Ah, sweet, manmade horror beyond my comprehension

  5. This is why psychopaths should not be able to develop biotechnology

  6. This is a dangerous idea. I can imagine corrupt governments/organizations using this for 1000 years of brainwashing or 1000 years of torturing dissidents. I would imagine that this will take a toll on the mind as well. They’re coming back into society less mentally stable than before (I guess not much has changed there).

  7. Now imagine this but with porn. 1000 year sex!!

  8. How about the reverse where it feels like 8 hours but it’s actually been 1000 years

  9. I don’t know what genjutsu is, but there’s an episode of Star Trek where an alien race put Chief O’Brien into a state where he believed he had served a 20 year sentence in only a few hours. He spent the rest of the episode being traumatized as shit.

  10. Why limit this technology to punish? Why not change it for college degrees? You could get a PHD in about 30 minutes.

  11. Dumb question could they make that technology not be a punishment? You could give a terminally ill kid a chance for a normal life even if it is a virtual world

  12. The Jaunt is longer than you think!

  13. who are the actual criminals here if such stuff will be developed?

  14. **Ahem**: Cruel and unusual

  15. Inception be like

  16. I just watched this episode

  17. That’s a bit much. Imo unless you’re convicted of a violent crime and depends on the extent/nature of that crime, prison shouldn’t be that long and excruciating. On top of that, you re-enter society with a label as a felon that will only make it harder to acclimate back in.

  18. Execution is far more humane, and a much better option. This is cruel beyond anyone’s imagination.

  19. As you know, the concept of the suction pump is centuries old. Really that’s all this is except that instead of sucking water, I’m sucking life. I’ve just sucked one year of your life away. I might one day go as high as five, but I really don’t know what that would do to you. So, let’s just start with what we have. What did this do to you? Tell me. And remember, this is for posterity so be honest. How do you feel?

  20. On one hand, my first thought is ‘the bigger point of sentence is to keep criminals off the streets and not be able to harm others’

    But on the other side, if someone lives (mentally) the equivalent of 1000 years, I think they would have a very hard time even functioning – their mind would be exhausted…

  21. Isn’t there also a movie like this? I can’t remember the name of it but by putting something in the prisoner’s eyes it would make them serve 10 years time in just a couple of minutes or experience somewhere else in the world, and it was originally created because >! the woman who designed it was trying to bring her brother out of a coma, and was hoping if she could input a different memory it could wake him up !<

  22. It’d be cool to live 100 lifetimes in a paradise.

    But honestly, this is dangerous territory to be trouncing around in willy nilly.

    At some point 5 minutes and 5 years would become indistinguishable.

    Then when you woke up or whatever your brain would snap.

    This is scary!!!

  23. False convictions will be on the rise if this is made.

  24. One of the amendments prohibits cruel and unusual punishment tho, doesn’t it? I don’t think this would be allowed any time soon

  25. Well well well if it isn’t man made horrors beyond my comprehension

  26. Agh so real life I’m in right now is my prison sentence over soon?

  27. So, does this means, I can feel like getting anal sex for 20 years in few hours? I would pay for that lol.

  28. Wonder if that’s where I am now?
