Through modern technology and IT it is possible to extrapolate what a person may look like by obtaining images of their parents and themselves and morphing all the images. Taken in steps this will show a graduated image of the subject getting older, obviously it can only go as far as the current age of the parent, that is to say that you could take an image of your parents at your age now and bring it up to the present. This will also act as a good proof of concept.

This is how your message will look:

Phil, I wonder have you ever played about with morphing tool software, when you take two images say one of yourself as a lad, and one of you now, and the software automatically does the transition. I think I want to try this to see if I can use it another way, in a spin-off composition? maybe, maybe not? can't decide! :-)

"What's to prevent someone from stealing your camera phone, then using a photo of you to authenticate them as you? Unlike a password or PIN number, etc, your likeness (i.e. photo of you) is not something that you can protect from being public"
Instead of using a password to unlock your cellphone, a Japanese company called Earth Beat has come up with a way to use a picture instead. You just snap a picture of yourself with your cameraphone, then whenever you want to unlock the phone it uses face recognition technology to verify that the person trying to use the phone matches the photo it has in storage. Which also means you might be unable to use your phone if you ever change your appearance
