Doing my last hundred item post made me think about how long I really want to live.
I want to live at least to 100. If I had my druthers I would like to live to 150!
Is that wrong? Should I wish for a healthy shorter life? Should I wish for a more meaningful but shorter life?
I probably should. Right?
But you know what makes me want to live so very long? Selfishly, I am a voyeur. I want to see what happens next... and next... and next... and next.
Just think, in the last 50 years, world happenings and technology have progressed so fast, evolved so fast, and disintegrated so fast. Faster than ever in human history. More things that touch my life are changing faster than ever before. I know my parents and grandparents and all my esteemed ancestors down to a Rift valley Lucy, could never have ever hoped to see so much change in thier lifetimes.
This pace will only increase exponentially. We are the vanguard of an era that Humanity has never seen before. Lucky us!
Can you even imagine the earth and our lives a century hence? What do you think you will see?
I know we will have the same conflicts and successes because that my friends is the human condition, but all in all it will be an exciting time because everything will happen so much faster.
And I have so much to see before I sleep!
