I won’t disagree with you on this but here’s a partial list of new things I’ve seen in the last 50 years. I grew up with radio and black&white TV in the 50s since then there has been the transistor radio, color TV the microwave oven, hearing aids, mechanical hearts and the ability to do transplants. the calculator, computers, the internet, space travel, breaking the sound barrier, solar cells, other renewable energy, cell phones (not all inventions were good) computer games and finally, I helped out with the first computer program that can go to work making you money so you don’t even have to go to work anymore.
Some people even believe that within 30 years, humans will be able to grow a new human without sex, (this is obviously one of those inventions that are not very good, life without sex, what’s the point?)
And in 2017, there is no such thing as a seastead, that will also change shortly. I predict, Memphis Meats cost comparable with farm beef within 7 years. As they increase their production capabilities, the price will drop rapidly. Your future aught to be awesome.
