In the year 3052, humanity shed its corporeal existence, and joined the ever expanding ranks of intangible, cerebral entities which float, bodiless, throughout the universe.

Overall it has been a good move for us; no more do we need to worry about those ancient problems of old age, famine and disease. We are beyond the reach of such troubles now.

Free and carefree we float amongst the eddies of the space currents, examining every celestial body that catches our interest. We dive into the very core of the sun and explore its mysteries without harm. Heat, cold, gravity, air pressure, friction - these matter not a whit to us.


Yes, overall it was a good move, and I don't regret it at all. Except...

At Christmastime it's tough to figure out where to put those stocking-stuffers.
