'27:20 imagine not even conceptualizing the existance of any other civilization outside of earth. I guess the 2000s were really a prison age' That comment above is what I like to imagine every so often. From a possible perspective of someone far into the future who might possibly live a thousand years away, for whom a daily mundane reality includes something sci-fi, unthinkable now. Like a boring business meeting with a few more extra terrestrial races for example. The interesting part is, that such comment would be totaly relatable to someone, if my sci-fi imagination would happen. Someone so far away on a time, technology and a knowledge scale, yet having the same thought. A mind bridge between ages.

_You are not you again_ Ladies and gentleman, i just want to say, With the power of echo chamber, you will be trapped in your own opinion universe.... echo chamber effect is when google always provide something you interested and wont let you taste the feel of other things except what you interested with, overpersonalized us ,get it? So... Yes, we are naked in front of google, that is why you not pay to google, they dont want you to pay, and when you are not paying, it means you are the product. We are the google product ,so google can sell their "product".. how? Okay, simple, a company pay for ads to google because google simply know who is the right person for that ads from the data or echo chamber that we create.... ... google know better about you than yourself, will not let you grow, it will trap you to your own personal loop, you will grow only if you can go out from that loop ......You are not yourself again, you are now the product of google, and google can change you everytime

Being in the twenties of the twenties, I like to think that I am living in the good ol' days because the actual twenties feels impossibly long ago to me, so I know that in 2120, people are gonna think of me (and us) like absolute ancients

Another interesting point from the start when u talk about people born in the same time but imagined in different times are people who you know for what they did rather than who they are, for example Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA was born in the same year as both Marilyn Monroe and the queen, but i bet most people would imagine him to have been born more around, the 40s or 50s

Time is a cyslic periodicity of thr fundamental property called 'The Change'. No change, No Time. Change by definition can not all happen at once or at the same instance but by separation. The process of separation is an emergence of the property we measure as a Time. The rest is comparative or relative.

Hi to someone in 2031, I'm stuck in tier 4 lock down at the moment for Covid19 and not allowed out the house, it's pretty boring. I'm watching this on my flat screen ASUS 27" FHD monitor in 1080p, pretty snazzy i know! I can't order ps5 atm because they're out of stock everywhere, i have a petrol car though that's pretty cool.
