    I'd be a pupaphile (I'd molest pupas as an adult)
    Hell, maybe I'd be a larvaphile too.

    Imagine all the child deaths because parents aren't keeping the pupa in a proper temperature and humidity environment. Or the adult emerging with deformations.

      Meh, child deaths and genetic deformities already exist to us non-holometabolic creatures anyway.

    Life would be better if humans could regrow their teeth. Mammals really got cucked in that department.

    What would this improve?

      First: reproduction. Live birth is incredibly inefficient, this would in read our birthrate. Second: social cohesion. An egg is an egg is an egg, a larva is a larva is a larva, etc. No more confusion, everything will be obvious and correct. Third: quality of life and art. Things would be so much more interesting if we underwent these marked changes that we’d be happier and the art we’d make depicting ourselves in these different stages of life would be cooler than the current art being made.

        Live birth is actually exceedingly efficient which is why mammals have prospered while reptiles and amphibians are increasingly dying out. Even some sharks have adopted live birth. Laying eggs requires those eggs to be either abandoned and hoped for the best, or constantly guarded. By carrying the fetus to term, you effectively bring your nest with you. Even more efficient is having almost all development take place over the pregnancy, completely skipping the larval and pupa stages. Mother is the baby's pupa, effectively, protecting it during its rapid growth and transformation.

        To your second point, nothing would change. Let's say humans did have this life cycle. One could easily imagine one group holding that life begins upon the laying of eggs, while another group would say the eggs need to hatch, and a third would say life only really begins after emerging from the pupa. Everything is not "obvious and correct", it would get actually even more subjective - especially on matters of abortion or rights. Does a larva have rights? Does a pupa? Gee, I dunno.

        Quality of life wouldn't be any better either. Larva are characterized as being voracious as they try to consume as much food as possible for the best chance of having enough to be a large and competitive adult. Human children can be described as such, but they have nothing on insect larva. And really, I don't think you'd want to be in charge of raising a bunch of maggots - even if they metamorphosed into humans later.

          except the part where youre carrying your nest, you fail to understand that carrying that much extra bulk is the same as eggs, except you cant abandon them if something goes wrong and make new ones, you just die. mammals are only doing well because the world was doing well, the moment things start going badly, theyre the first one die out because theyre not as robust to famines unlike reptiles, amphibians are incredibly fragile but theyre mostly dying out because of pollution

            It's only the same if you ignore all the ways you are protecting those eggs by incubating them internally.

    So we would go from a giant fetus into a fully grown adult? No children? Think of the pedos

      EGG —> WORMY THING —> XENOMORPH CREATURE —> ADULT
      There are more holometabolic insects than all vertebrates animals (including humans) combined. Why is that?

          Insects don’t frick in the pupa stage, so no; you don’t become an adult until you’re at the last stage of the cycle.
          Some female beetles and moths stay in their larval stage throughout their entire lifespan and thus reproduce while in it, but they’re the exception, not the rule.
