I can’t imagine living in pre-historic/ancient times where the world was new and alien to humans.

(or I guess technically humans were new and alien to the world)

In today’s world there’s very little mystery left. Pretty much everything has been discovered and studied to death. If we want to know about a particular place in the world, or a particular plant or animal, we can look up all kinds of information on it without leaving our homes. Someone (or some people) have already learned all there is to know about it in the last couple thousand years.

I realize many of these people are wrong and things are constantly being rediscovered or reevaluated, especially in the areas of chemistry and physics… but I mean… we have satellite imagery of literally every corner of the planet. You can see what’s geographically at any location in the world without going there first (at a very high level, anyway)

Makes me even more curious what life/society will be like in another 1000 years (if humans are still around then, at least… at the rate technology is advancing I wouldn’t be surprised if we had rendered ourselves extinct by then)

I really really like this guy’s artistic style. I’d probably buy a print or 3 or 20 if he sold them.

Got a free 6-pack of beer. Too bad it tastes like Miller Lite

yes the obvious ways technology has altered society is fascinating and all but do you ever think about less obvious things like how the internet has created all kinds of new types of relationships that didn’t exist 50 years ago?

To be honest I spend a lot of my free time not doing anything in particular except laying on my couch listening to beautiful music

Come back to the Midwest, Odesza, I need to see you again
