If I encountered my earlier self, I would have a flurry of questions
to ask my former self. I would have so much to talk about that
somebody might have to intervene -:)

This may be true, but your former self could learn from your
current self, and visa versa -- that is if you knew who you were
talking to. If you had no clue that it was your former self,
I can understand. I might feel the same way, but I hope not.
 There is thread of essence, interests, humor and maybe some
underlying values, but many of my values have changed, that would
connect me to my former self, regardless of which one is smarter.

Each transition of character is as vital to the whole as the
result of each pivot point. If I discounted my entire former
self as irrelevant, than this is precisely the behavior my future
self would impinge on my current self.
