Let's say I picked the happiest moment in my life (I honestly don't know what that is, but we can ignore that for now). After the Singularity when we can do things currently considered impossible, could I for all practical purposes rewind time and experience that moment again as if it had never happened to shift my hedonic set point?

I can remember how happy I was at my fourth birthday when my mum got me a pink balloon. It was very pretty. :)
