Do you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average lifespan was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement. There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for planning. No time for a future. But then lifespans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future, and so they spent more time thinking about it. About the future. And now life has become the future.
