Truly, to suggest the times we live in are boring is rather amazing to me.
Sure, people might be a disappointed at first. Much like a child that wanted a bright new shiny toy and instead got a book instead. They read the book and a whole new world opens up for them. Ideas pour into their head and change their life, placing them on a path towards a rich and rewarding life. The shiny toy is not even remembered years later.
Organ replacements are now a common place. the most common cancers people recover from most of the time.I can get my vision corrected to better than 20/20. Stems cells are being used in cutting edge medicine. If I have a little bit of extra cash to burn I can get a printout of all my genes. I now can keep in nearly effortless contact with anyone I care to. I can make life long friends with nearly anyone on the planet, never meeting them in person but knowing much about their day to day life. I have effortless access to more information than can be comfortably understood by someone 60 years ago. I can be as informed as most heads of state from that era. I can translate for free entire documents from one language to another anywhere my phone has a connection.We connect people better now than at any time in history. We can now share our thoughts and feelings - the very essence of who we are - faster and better with more people than were alive 60 years ago. I now have the potential power that, with the right thought, I can change the world.
And you think they would be bored?
