I have a feeling that we are living in an exceptional time. The flourishing of science and technology, the Internet, the population explosion, etc. Have people experienced this exclusivity at all times? Or are we just lucky?

At least in modern times, all generations were sure that they were living in an exceptional era. And before that, everyone was sure that they were living in a time immediately preceding the events of the Apocalypse.

I like the answer from pianist Sidorov. But I am not him, so I will say it differently. The Chinese have such a curse: Let you live in an era of change. As far as we are lucky, it makes sense to think about 800 years later, but I'm not sure if I can find the question in such a long time. It is interesting to me that I can compare Perestroika with the birth of democracy, with its rapid death and New Stagnation. This gives me a perspective that I would not have had if I were 17. Now about the second half of the 20th century. Imagine. Some of the people are still waiting for communism by 2000. Many believe in progress and in the conquest of the stars, the Lenin-3 space station in Mars orbit, scientific towns on the Moon, cities on Mars and Venus by 2000, a spacecraft to Proxima Centauri in 2015. And now we live in the era of disappointment.

About 800 years later. Now imagine: now total control over the Internet has not yet been defeated, there is no talk of a trip to the stars yet, the teleport has not yet been invented, there is no constant communication with other civilizations, even spending a weekend near Jupiter will not work. Is our time really so developed?

We were lucky, the first computer that I saw in the life of the EC-1841 and it was cool, my children do not fully understand what this is about, how you can live without an android, but I found two buckets of black caviar and I'm afraid that I can't do it for them show, there is not enough money, and I certainly am not the last rogue. Each generation is lucky in its own way.
