will be an odd minority with a different history and background than anyone
else. [...] We will be a small band of travelers

This past few years I have had many evenings filled with similar thoughts to
your "long view". I call it -> "being sentimental about the future" and, up
until now, I figured I might be loosing it! (As in: going a bit nuts) I'm
so glad to read those same thoughts echoed by such an intelligent and
obviously sane person as yourself. I fondly hope that, a many years from
now, our "small band of travellers" can have occational reunions (say every
100 years or so) and be sentimental about the __past__ 8) 8/ 8D
