Your content and message can still be fit into today. You just need to mold your message for a more technologically advanced society. You weren't born at the wrong time. You're born at the right time with an alternative way to deliver your message.
An anachronism—from the Greek ανά (ana: up, against, back, re-) and χρόνος (chronos: time)—is an inconsistency in some chronological arrangement, especially a chronological misplacing of persons, events, objects, or customs in regard to each other. The item is often an object, but may be a verbal expression, a technology, a philosophical idea, a musical style, a material, a custom, or anything else so closely associated with a particular period in time that it would be incorrect to place it outside its proper domain. A representation of something as existing or occurring at other than its proper time in history.

I always wondered how many people feel like this.
My own feeling is that I should have been born in ancient greece.
I would rather be talking to people in the agora about the nature of man and existance and if the city was under threat be ready to fight to defend it.
I know this seems like a romanticized image but I have felt like this since I was like 10-11 years old.
I'm more of a renaissance person with multiple interests like history, language, philosophy.
And I've never fit anywhere I've lived.
Sometimes I feel this so profoundly and sometimes I feel like this is just a product of the fact that I've never fit in.
Either way this is how i feel. Anyone else?
