I can't tell if I miss who I was and how I felt and/or if I miss the nicknacks and on boarding of new tech.
A little bit of both, maybe. 😊

The possible (healthy) technology was worse "the year before".
It gets better - not worse. You are stuck in the bad past.
visyes, the hardware got better. processing speeds got better. a lot of modern tech is superior, nobody is arguing with that. i just miss the "vibe" of old tech. it felt so much more playful and fun. there was so much more you could customize. old tech had a hopeful, joyful vision of the future; modern tech took that vision and painted it gray and flatter than ever.

fidelisDont understand your ground for that major statement.
Todays tech is so much more playful and fun than before.

The technology could do less and worse than today. You like the estetics with bad technology, thats all you refer to. I want better always. You waste time on a bad past ~ but you really like you blobby little mobile pictures. That technology feels so far removed from the "real world" now. i dont like shit like that. I want it easy served so I can do drugdeals fast. You want it worse again. I live only once(yet) so why waste time on retarded nostalgia

visNostalgia can be a warm blanket at times, and some of us like that 'blanket' more than others. Real world is running out of shadowy corners to hide in and I think those of us used to it just being that way are pining for those older, albeit simpler times

KurtV989Technological Singularity is a wealthier refuge all shiny like the stars to reach. Are we alone? At this earthly moment we are still

visyou make a good point, why spend so much time pining for old times when they're obviously gone and not coming back?
I think we are caught in the middle between ages: digital infancy-->digital independence, We played in the dirt, when we had a question we needed answered it was off to the library. I remember once my mom ordered a 'guide' to beat an NES game, it took forever to get to us, was just sheets of paper all thrown together, yet we were so excited! where now, our kids are born in to it and it's normal for them to get any answer they need in seconds.

It's two completely different upbringings, I for one envy your very positive view of this age we find ourselves in @vis!

KurtV989Sure there is history to remember and cherish. It is me that are bitter about my past experience and I have to be in present with all loaded into whats next. It is me that are skewed in this matter. I want to know whats beyond, more than decay and death for me surely. :cry: I am an extreme outsider in cloak and dont want to be a hack on fidelis, she is very outspoken allright but too laid back for my stern stamina. Probably she is above me in life value anyway and I am lost. Damn me. Off I Gooo

visSome smart guy once said something along the lines:
"I don't fear death. I was dead for billions of years before I was born and it didn't bother me at all"

For me, what ever this roller coaster of chills and thrills actually turns out to be.
I'd say it's been a good run. Good fun.
The best of times and the worst of times. ☺️

All of the experiences, from mundane to exciting.
Emotions, strong as can be.
Albeit deafened over the years, but still sharply defined by the sheer contrasts they exert.

TLDR: Everything passes, for better or for worse, it will change. 🤗

PazPaz: Thanks for cheering. I am darksided intellectual. A damn joke I am for real. I will work till the end though. Joyous I am not, never really. It is a front if I seem happy. I have goals that I will reach more or less by foremost Elaborate drugdealing. It is unfortunate bad. life hard. I stern. Dont show me weak whiny like now.

to Kurt: No! In pain I trust. I must reach my slimmed goal or I off finally.

We all come from different walks of life. My childhood in comparison to the majority of the population I would consider spectacular. My life seemed to get shittier the older I got and the more decisions I made and now here I am!

Point I'm trying to make is, here we all are talking amongst ourselves completely privately about whatever the fuck we want. We have it really good and really bad all at the same time. and @vis your outlook on life must get tiresome, I implore you to camp out in nature or even take a walk out the forest. Remember that you are here now and get to experience whatever may be around you. Let the salve of nature calm your soul!

High as shit right now (if that sounded preachy gay to anyone lol)
