Everyone would want subjective time to run as fast as possible for themselves. If they "skip" a thousand years and go straight to the Mind age, that's not become a Mind a thousand years earlier. It's losing a thousand years of being a human.

Of course, you could have them skip to the Mind age, and then let them have an extra thousand years later on.
