I just meant that Momoshiki's conversation with Boruto was something akin to the tailed beasts' telepathy where they could speak with each other without spending an actual time on it: no matter how long the conversation should take, there won't pass any time in the reality.
Why do people think Boruto's talk is so special? We've seen people talk to ghosts before, and conversations in the mental plane have always been extremely vague time-wise. We've also seen people pick any form for their mental plane, so i don't see how Momoshiki (Assuming it was momoshiki) would't be able to make it seem like time stood still.
Continuing with the Momoshiki thing, it's likely that Boruto could sense his soul. it's not an outrageous ability since we've already seen eyes rip out souls. Sasuke's Rinnegan can presumably do that too, although it seems momoshiki was able to hide his presence from Sasuke.
I don't see how what Momoshiki did would be very different from transmigration.
I just hope they stick with mostly established abilities. I don´t want Boruto to pull some new Dojutsu out of his ass that becomes canon. I had a theory when the Manga ended that the Uzumaki Clan descendant from Hamura´s family branch, explaining their high life force etc. Basicly the sibling clan of the Hyuga, which due to the fortunate union of his parents would lead to Boruto awakening Tenseigan that enables him to surpass Naruto & Sasuke in powerlevel, which Kishimoto foreshadowed in the Movie. Given the consistant duality of Manga the Tenseigan who is "apparently" equal to Rinnegan in terms of power could be the version of the same ability that unlocks through training and maturity rather than talent alone. Hamura is implied to have achieved this ability after sealing his mother and a considerate amount of time passed while Hagoromo was born with his ability. Mirroring the consistent inferiority of the younger brother who has to work harder to catch up to the older sibling in the Naruto verse.

Because Boruto aspires to become a shinobi like Sasuke. Putting his character through the same hardships as Sasuke aka reviving a curse mark and having an evil person inside himself is a step towards reaching his objective for better or worse.
I understand the reasoning, but this would be exceptionally lazy and boring from the author. From what we have read untill now they seem to be desperate to convey that they want to tell a different story set within the same universe. Given those aspirations, parallelisms are a given, but there is no value in replacing Naruto´s story arc with Sasuke´s for Boruto. Furthermore it doesn´t make sense for Boruto to copy Sasuke´s arc due to him living in an inherently opposite environment and neither have they introduced a character that´d be fitting to fullfill that role either. WHat I´m trying to say is. If Momoshiki imbued Boruto with a curse mark his motivation doesn´t necessarily have to be takeover of his body. He could as well just have sealed himself inside of him to cheat death and come back. Literally the same way Orochimaru did it, but without any intentions of taking him over. He like I mentioned above could just wanted to mock him foreseeing that the boy is doomed and finding pleasure in that certainty. Like I said, we simply cannot know and i doubt this outcome. Although I wouldn´t put it past them.
