A Galactic Traveller's Clipboard

Observations of the average galactic tourist.

The more things change…

Homo sapiens are mostly creatures of habit at this stage of their evolution. Change is a frightening thing to them no matter how advantageous or good the change may be. As such Homo sapiens may tend to resist change irrationally simply because they are used to the way things are, no matter how ineffective/ disadvantageous it is. This may even become a problem during their ageing years when stubbornness clouds their thought processes.

I believe the word best describing this phenomenon is nostalgia.

This is probably why most Homo sapiens will never achieve true immortality or be driven mad even if they do.
