.Some of you may even have videos of you being born sitting on a digitised videotape somewhere; imagine the surreal sight of your great grandchildren being able to view your messy, screaming debut into the world before fast-forwarding to footage of your funeral. To steal a line from H.G Wells, they will study us “as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water”. Unlike the Romans, we will not be idealised memories mapped onto a clay death mask. We will be there in vivid HD detail, our every triumph and flaw there to be studied and dissected. We are haunted not by the spirits of our ancestors, as the Romans believed, but watched by the omnipresent eyes of generations yet to come.
