[GMW #3531] What Our Books Of Today Will Reveal About Us In The Year 3000

[GMW #3531] What Our Books Of Today Will Reveal About Us In The Year 3000 Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 3926 ~
I am often tempted to throw books away! There are so many of them accumulating over a lifetime, but I usually change my mind thinking that in a hundred years they will be as interesting and curious as are today books which are a hundred years old.

What will humans think of our books in five hundred years or in the year 3000? They might not believe it that we could be so cut-up, so disorganized, uncoordinated and insensitive to the problems of a global world and of the long-term future. What label will they give us? We should think about that at the beginning of this third millennium.

Volume III - The Seasons of Life
Chapter 1 -
The Span of Life

Every year, on the first of January, I calculate how many days I have lived in my life, and how many days I wish still to live in order to achieve the age of 100:  On 1 January 2001, the figures were as follows:
days already lived:  27,990
days to reach 100:    8,505
past heart beats:  3,061,800,000 (at 75 beats per minute, 4,500 an hour, 108,000 a day)
heart beats to go:   879,660,000

A reduction of heart beats by 5 a minute, due to calm and relaxation, represents 7,200 less beats a day.
