Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 126 People

    In A Place Where We Do Not Suture

    wounds since we have a healing beam and things are not what they seem. I want my floating city and my robot kitty. I want a flying car and be able to reach a star. I assimilate into the future society. I will become a cyborg. I will give up mortality as my body does a reorg.
