This is about the only reference to Goku’s time before he was brought to Heaven. He remembers the world being full of life where he was, and how kind everybody was to him, in comparison to those in Heaven. And this was all during a time before he ever had a diadem to limit his powers, or weighted shackles that were put there by Heaven themselves in order to keep him under control, simply because they feared him that much. But this alone proves that Seiten hasn’t always been a blood thirsty animal. And that “people” probably humans, got along with him even then. A time when youkai and humans co-existed peacefully.

It wasn’t until the trauma he encountered during his time in Heaven that made him the killer and blood thirsty monster that we know today. Which is why I theorize that each time Seiten is released after that, it’s like he is reliving that moment, that trauma, over and over. And lashes out, just as he did back in Heaven. And continually being sealed away by the diadem isn’t allowing Seiten enough time to come to terms and realize that he isn’t still there. Especially since he’s always been released during times of other trauma. Whether it’s being thrown right into a fight, waking up in immense pain cause he was on the verge of death, being terrified because he thought people were trying to hurt him… he isn’t given the chance to simply live yet…
