Wilhelm's Wish (the year is 2012):
I want to accompany my children as long as possible, and I always want to be there for them.
A loyal, trustworthy, supporting, comforting, pretty, monogamous, female partner would be perfect.
Furthermore I want to achieve immortality through not dying - in other words:
I want to live a happy, healthy and wealthy life forever.
I want to understand and explore a world that is bigger than we can readily comprehend in every respect - in short,
I want to understand and explore the universe(s) completely.
Apparently other humans suffer from the time problem too, therefore it is obviously no wonder that I found the following suitable song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToNK2-JuQMs (John Rowles: If I Only Had Time)
And I would like to see how life and all these sciences evolve over time
(e.g. from MS-DOS to Windows 7; or from my first landline telephone to the iPhone 4S).
Additionally, I would love to have my intelligence quotient (IQ) increased by 60 points, so that I could easily understand, design, and create: algorithms and data structures like genetic algorithms, generic containers, self-balancing binary search trees, and the Mandelbrot set - all of which are my hobbies.
O.K., what I really want is to be departing the starship Enterprise-E in a one-man shuttlecraft headed to the planetoid (inhabited solely by women) I rule known as Wilhelm Beta Five.
