That's a matter of perspective I suppose.
The difference between today and only 100 years ago, is that the same thing, different day?
Is it "It's a small world after all" for the 500 millionth time?
I beg to differ.
100 years from now, will it be same thing different day?
If ever we as a species make for permanent life off planet, either within our own solar system, or somewhere far far away, will that be same thing
The differences between life 100 years ago and now are fairly well pronounced enough such that anyone claiming they'd be bored during such time span
would need be in serious question for any facility to self entertain.
100 years from now? Boredom? Seriously?
Of course, should mortality become optional, anyone and everyone that chooses to live a short life is welcome to do so.
It might well make an interesting premise for some Hollywood drama in attempting to illustrate differences in philosophies between those who'd be
happy and overjoyed to enjoy eternal youth versus those who'd willfully deny it.
To each their own. Dirt or stars.
