I'd like to live on an endless frontier as an ageless hunter, hunting game when it suits me, returning to town when it suits me, earning enough to keep my belly full and my gear in check, perhaps saving up for small luxuries, a pretty stopwatch that doesn't tell the time, a harmonica for when the mood takes me, but nothing like a house, no mortgage, nothing to tie me down, just wandering the Earth meeting people, trading stories, giving stuff away when I feel like it.What would an ideal modern world look like to you guys?
A life of pure whimsy, no goals, no responsibility, nowhere to be, nothing I need to do.
Maybe I could do that in the modern world, safely story my brain somewhere and walk the Earth via remote controlled robotic bodies, learn some trades, find casual work wherever I go, just hunt when I'm hungry so to speak.
The point of this isn't to be happy as such, though I do imagine I would find as much happiness as sorrow in my travels, rather the point of it is to avoid the things that make me unhappy, to stop running the rat-race and enjoy the show.
