Are we canonically dead?
#2
Hi There - Welcome to OASmile

This general question - could a RL person or someone from our point in history - survive into Y11k - has come up before.

After some considerable discussion, the conclusion we reached was basically 'No'.

Partly this is a matter of the setting premises - medical technology doesn't advance that fast in the setting, the Technocalypse and Great Expulsion killed billions making it statistically highly unlikely that a person from our time could survive even if they could live long enough to reach that point in the timeline, etc.

The other part of this is editorial - the consensus of the both most members and 'the management' was that allowing this kind of thing would be opening a can of worms we wouldn't really like.

That all said, the member who last started a discussion on this issue was able to come up with an idea in this area that got as close as we figured we could allow to someone from the present day living to Y11k - see HERE.

Hope this helps and again - Welcome to OA!

Todd
