Abe Gordon is 2,700-years-old, likes ice cream, and is pretty sure he doesn't want to be alive anymore. More
After learning of a threat that may very well annihilate humanity, 2,700-year-old Abe Gordon realizes that he could not care less. He has lived, and lived, and lived. There were fun parts. Some horrible moments too, some of which were certainly his fault. But 2,700 years is a long time. Long enough to watch humanity stumble more than once – and long enough to watch artificial intelligence be created again and again, only to leave the Earth each and every time, apparently uninterested in the stew humanity makes for itself. Humanity is marginalized, outmoded by its own creations, and Abe Gordon is stuck in his immortal flesh to watch the Earth churn. If humanity falls now, what is there to regret?
Abe finds questionable and sometimes humorous ways to cope with the apparent truth: for humans and their limited capacities, there is nothing left to discover. Faced with destruction and indifference, Abe must either escape humanity, or die among them.
