Children have always been better at adapting to changes in the world than their parents. Probably at least part of the reason we're programmed to die after we've had them. Wasn't as noticable thousands of years ago when fuck all much changed from one century to the next. We hunted, we gathered, we slept in caves but, lately, the world is capable of becoming a completely different thing in the space of a couple of years. If it keeps going like this, sooner or later only babies are going to be able to function.
They'll just lie there, in their crib, calmly ordering a drone delivery of mushy apple sauce, online using a genetically engineered wifi organ while the rest of us walk around in a complete fucking future shocked daze.
