So often I'm overwhelmed by the "My god we live in the future." feeling, as the boundary between the now and the future has approached and finally washed over us. Because the future that once was has come, without being replaced by a new one. It's two faces of the same feeling.
Some people know that there are many possible futures. And once you accept this possibility - well, then you want to play your part getting us onto the best timeline possible. If you're one of these people - wherever you are, whatever you do, however you view your talents - this is the place for you.
