Hypothetical scenario 1 (Actually a featured movie fiction scenario): a group of mutated and clinically immortal beings live in communities called covens. They take turns to sleep for 100 years so that they could regenerate and rest their bodies. So they have a sort of mandate governance. One major problem – how to meaningfully transfer all the new information to the just awaken person. This is an especially challenging task lately since hundred years tend to pack ever more significant news. So they need to implement some sort of rapid learning.

Hypothetical scenario 2 (somewhat relaxed assumptions of scenario 1): We find a way to resurrect humans (as physical entities or at least as informational entities). An important major problem – how to meaningfully transfer all the new information to the just resurrected person so that he/she is a contributing member of society from now on. This is an especially challenging task if you consider the possibility of resurrecting informational entities died centuries ago. So we need to implement some sort of rapid learning.

Hypothetical scenario 3 (more and more realistic with each passing day): We have to at least try to include in a transhumanistic society everyone that has been left future shocked by the constant change. The most major problem – how to meaningfully transfer all the new information to the future shocked person so that he/she is a contributing member of society from now on. This is an especially challenging task if you consider the reality of ever so quick rate of leveling up the minimum requirement skills and knowledge just to participate in live. We need to implement some sort of rapid learning.
