That’s a cheery thought.
and if one is cremated after death and the combustion gases are analyzed, there are probably measurable amounts of common plastics that are burned out of the individual cells, that won't ever be excreted during one's lifetime.
Then the traditional burials, if a cemetery is excavated a thousand years from now, one could analyze the bones and teeth to pin down the exact time that person once lived. there will be radionuclides that are products of nuclear weapon tests for everyone who died after about 1945 and microplastics in everyone who died after the late 1980s to early 1990s - which means everyone alive now will have both of these substances in detectable amounts in their remains.
This is much like how you can examine teeth in European cemeteries and see a very distinct time line boundary where most skeletons have extensive tooth decay up to the present, and those skeletons prior to the early 1500s do not have tooth decay.
This is the historical boundary when extensive cheap sugar plantations sprang up in the Caribbean and was imported in such volume that even the poorest peasants could afford a high sugar diet. Prior to then, such tooth decay was only seen among the elites.
So all of us will leave behind remains that indicate we lived in the era after nuclear weapons and after the proliferation of plastics, as well as other chemical signatures of high fructose corn syrup and a few modern pharmaceuticals.
And don't forget the reduction in tooth decay after they started adding fluoride to the water too.
We tend to get used to what we are exposed to and adapt.

How does one adapt when constantly exposed to false media lies and government corruption?
Just asking of course!
Fighting it or giving in. A lot of people just ignore it because it’s too crazy for them.

And will ignoring it make the problem go away? NOPE... it will just continue to get crazier and crazier.
Yes, it will. There is a new book coming out to fight it, but I can’t post it here. Too political.

Then PM me the title of that book.
