i love the past but times back then were horrible so i would stay in the now. plus back in the sixties or medieval times they didnt have much anime or the internet in general so i would be pretty bored.

Essentially it means I'd prefer to live in a time where people aren't really dying of old age all that often (if at all), which is the biological immortality part. The post-scarcity economy part is a society in which goods and services are available in such abundance that pretty much everyone can have as much of nearly anything they want as they'd like to have without depriving anyone else of the same. To put it even more simply...

"YOU get a car, and YOU get a car, and YOU get a car, and YOU get a car..." for the entire human race.


We aren't even close to immortality, not sure that is something that we could ever achieve.

But we already have the resources and technology to provide a reasonable quality of life for everyone on earth. But it is simply human nature to abuse and oppress those below them, and to hoard whatever they can get their hands on instead of sharing with those with nothing.

I'll wait.

Well, part of the problem is that in a lot of places where things like food, medicine, and raw materials are needed the governments are either too corrupt to trust or too weak to be able to deliver these goods themselves. But there's also to consider the logistical questions beyond who is to be given control over these goods. There might not be roads, and even if there are people may have to travel long distances to get to where they lead. That's a pretty significant challenge for distribution. Then there's to consider the challenge of a lack of education and cultural barriers to distribution of goods. It won't do much good to get vaccines to people who don't know how vaccines work and are convinced that you're trying to poison them.

I guess I never answered the OP, instead I just offered my eternally jaded pov to BlueOnee-chan's answer.

There are many periods in history that I would love to experience, but most of all I would have loved to live in the Jazz era. That is until I think about what life was like for Hispanics in the first half of the 20th century; and realize that my actual experience would be nothing like the romanticized vision in my mind.

At a musical standpoint, I'm pretty happy with my birthdate.
At a gaming standing point, perhaps 10-20 years later would've been nice, but I'd miss out on all the music I hear nowadays so I no regrets there.

Ming Dynasty.

But I'm not never going back; the past is in the past.

I think I would have been an engineering catalyst in the 1400's, but I think I would be superbly content in the 1960's.

I'm with OP. I would love to see the types of technology available 100-200 years from now. Unfortunately I won't ever see it.
