I was thinking about the Animus the other day. About how interesting it would be in real life, and what hidden truths would be in our ancestor's memories. Then I came to a realization that most of our ancestors memories would be boring, but I digress.

It then came to my attention that the Animus might could display the personal memories of the user from birth up to 5 minutes prior to "now". If this is the case I imagine the user would have almost no trouble synchronizing, and find out things in their very own memories they didn't see during the real time occurrence.

Then here's a thought. What if the user in session could view personal memories in the Animus of them-self in a session of the Animus displaying his/her very own memory? There's a mind-****.

Just some thoughts, if I explained well enough for anyone here to understand. I thought this might be a good break from the problem/DRM/Mission Replay threads.

Somebody needs to build an Animus so we can try that infinite loop thing. ;@_@


I think it'd be pretty cool reliving the memories of some people. Always wanted to go to other places...

(This is assuming you get to pick and choose the person you would like to <STRIKE>stalk</STRIKE> relive the memories of)

It should be possible in the AC universe, shouldn't it? The Animus is based on that every human posesses some kind of subconscious photographic memory (How else would a detailed recreation of Venice be possible? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif), along with the memories being archived in one's DNA. And since Desmond was able to relive Ezio's birth, shouldn't he be able to access his own?

Also, how about a short segment of Desmond's father's life? Or Desmond's while still living on the Farm? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I imagine Desmond could view HIS birth too.

I never understood how that's possible due to the fact that a babies brain has no real way of storing memories yet(I think, correct me if I'm wrong).

Could he also revisit a memory of getting ****-faced and blacking out too then? Hm...

Then how do you explain why the camera didn't followed Altair, but instead focused to the semen..? If sperm can have memories, so can little babies, eh? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Psychic semen; Surely the sperm couldn't have hopped outside of Maria, and then back again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif?

I think it was Maria's final memories of that moment before the fertilisation. As genetic memory is fictional, it may be possible that memories from the mother may still be added to the child's DNA right up to the birth because of what we saw in the dream sequence and the fact that we saw Ezio's mother before he was actually born (even if it was only for a couple of seconds).

That is quite mind boggling indeed, however, I dunno man, relive someones memory is cool and all that, but with risk of getting brain hemorrhage and go batcrap insane a la subject 16?

Just to see some mind numbing session of fishing/hunting or farming of ancestor won't just cut it if you ask me.

Yeah, the bleeding effect is risky, especially if your bleeding through your own memories. Although, I imagine it wouldn't be as big of deal in your own memories, cause you're already you right? Maybe you'll think you were you from the past, and wonder what the hell was going on... I dunno!
