Hey everyone

 

Personally I wish I was born in the western world lets say 50, 100 or even 200 years from now. Just imagine what people born in 2100 or 2200 will get in their lifespan, that will be incredible.

 

As far as we're concerned and even if medicine will improve, we will be old or dead when real interesting technologies (body and mental perfection meaning everyone is beautiful, confident and disease-free, full immersion virtual reality, learning matrix style, abundance...) will be up.

 

What about you?

I actually feel very lucky to live in a time in which such revolutionary change can be witnessed.

And a time when you can have an effect on the future.


What difference does it make?

^ If we live long enough by extending our lives, we will be the only generation that knows what it was like before and after. We'll have the means to really appreciate the change. It's pretty exciting. I hope I'll live long enough.

"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

The real question is will we make it? Cos even if medicine improves drastically it won't be enough for us to be young and healthy in the future.

Nope. I'm proud to have been born in the second millennium, as it was the millennium that saw humanity change beyond all recognition and left us where we are today. I'm confident that I was born late enough to stand a change of some decent longevity, so yes, I'm very happy.

If I were born in the future, I wouldn't be the way I am today. I'd see things differently, and view things in the future as not that impressive. I'm glad I was born in this time, as then I'll be able to appreciate the future.

I'd rather be the part of humanity that makes the future incredible than simply experience the accomplishments of hard-working, revolutionary scientists and engineers. In other words, no. I'm extremely fortunate to have been born at this time of such exponential growth. Also, I would very much enjoy seeing the difference between governments and corporations being run by man versus being run by machines.

If you were born in the future, you would have the same experiences as you are having now. Instead of being frustrated at the fps lag in your games, you would be frustrated at the 10 seconds it takes for the universe to load on your holographic game system. 

So, I would be happy living anywhere, anytime. But presently, I would like to live in the now, when we are only just discovering invisibility, teleportation, live-bearing planets, AR, VR, social networking, ubiquitous technology, etc. Such exciting times we live in.

 

If you really want to be 'born' in the future, get yourself cryo-preserved at an early age!

Sure, because if I was born, in say, 2200 or in 2300, then I would be pretty much guaranteed of having an indefinite lifespan, whereas right now, there is no guarantee that I will live long enough to see effective anti-aging technology being developed and/or commercialized (even if I live for an extremely long time) and there is likewise no guarantee that cryogenic preservation will be successful (at least for me).

The times that we live in are already pretty exciting due to the fact that we were born either shortly before or shortly after the Cold War ended, at a time when the world finally began to recover from the idiocy of 1914-1991. However, as I previously pointed out, being born when we were actually born instead of 200 or 300 years later is still unfortunately a massively enormous risk, a risk which I am becoming more and more uncomfortable about.

This, kinda.

 

Because on the other side we can't be 100% sure that we will reach the times we want to as opposed to the ones born later. We may not reach an indefinite life span and many other cool things because of something as little as a decade. I hate that.

 

As i said in other thread, i like the year i was born, 1993, but i wouldn't mind being born in 2020 +.

 

I will appreciate more all the new technologies this way but i will suffer many years as well, waiting for theme.

 

If VR comes in 2039 like the time-line says i need to wait 26 years for it and i will be 46 years old...if i was born in 2020 i would be 19.

No I like when I was born. these Is drama..even if sometimes it goes too far...  it may happen that the future can be idealistically boring if we don't create some wild excitement.

I only wish medical therapies and diagnostics were much better at time time.

If I were an orphan and had no girlfriend, then yes I would. But I love my family too much, I wouldn't change them for the chance to be born in the future.

I agree with others, it really depends on if we make it. I am more than happy to take the long road to the future, as long as I make it.

Well, staying alive is tough. Many will get 80+, but some will die in accidents or other unhappy events. Lets also talk about heart diseases and strokes and all those diseases killing or permanently disabling at even 40...
