This present time, this present year, is the best to inhabit. For it is the journey, not the destination, which is everlasting.
At every point in time there will be something you are looking forward to, whether it be technology, a relationship, or what have you.
No matter how distant in the future you travel, there will always be grander things just beyond your reach. If not headset virtual reality, then multiplayer VR, then physical touch VR. If not chimp-level-artificial-intelligence, then human-level, then billion-human-level.
There is no end to the excitement that exists for you, dear reader.
