DRAFT 1

He's been everywhere and everywhen and yet he keeps coming back.

The future isn't much different from the past, if you ignore the clothes and the architecture, because underneath the window dressing, it's still humans running the place.

They complain about work, and who has what, and who has who, and why it wasn't fair, or why it won't work, or what they wish they had instead.

But most of all, they never lose that drive.

They always want more.

So they push boundaries, push laws, push against 'impossible' until either the limits break, or they do.

Lemming throwing themselves off cliffs... and sometimes, sometimes they fly.

DRAFT 2

He's been everywhere and everywhen. A near infinite universe... and he keeps coming back.

Because Earth's always the same.

The future is the present is the past --if you ignore the clothes and the architecture-- because underneath it all, they're still fundamentally, uniquely human.

They talk about work, and who has what, and who has who, or what they wish they had instead. Through it all they never lose that drive, that central human need for more.

They push boundaries, push laws, push against 'impossible' until either the limits break, or they do.

And sometimes penguins learn to fly...
