Fat chance. If you get on any decent path of personal
evolution at all, you'll come to love living more and more.
This "boredom" that worries you --- curiosity satiation---
remember, is a highly specific processes evolved by our
primitive brains to aid survival. We are speaking here
of *millions* of years from now. And sorry to be blunt,
but it's pretty dumb to go about supposing that the
fantastically enhanced "you" of the far future would
experience the same "hunches" you do now.

That's for sure! And a few thousand after that too!
