I’ve been reading Yuval Noah Harari’s book, “Homo Deus – A Brief History of Tomorrow”. In it, Harari talks about how famine, disease, and wars were the limiting factors in the lives of humans until the last few decades and in the next few, he believes mankind will pursue immortality, or at least, realistically, living much longer than we can now.
Although I’m not one who wants to live until I’m over a hundred years especially if I can’t function optimally in body and mind, I got to thinking about what would I do if I were around a lot longer,,, like the guy from “My Love From The Star”, a Korean drama about a man (stranded alien really) who’s been in Korea for hundreds of years and has seen the country change throughout. I thought, now that would be interesting… every decade or two, do a world tour and see how the countries I once visited has changed. Re-experience it.
