There are so many facts and concrete objects in the past and so much is being produced/generated while you are exploring that and even if you knew all the knowable facts there would still be so many options of combining and recombining them to new theories, explanations and stories!

    It is absolute hybris to assume that you will be through learning all there is to be learned (or everything interesting as long as your definition of interesting is not excessively narrow!) before your time on earth is over.

    It has less to do with actually seeing everything interesting, and more to do with feeling like I've seen everything interesting. In other words, not having that sense of wonder anymore.

    Existential boredom is a horrifying concept to me. Imagine never feeling interested in, or enthusiastic about, anything, ever again. Given the choice, I'd much rather retain my interest and enthusiasm, and see slightly fewer things in the world.

    (Edit: Incidentally, this has been fresh on my mind because my 60-year-old coworker was talking to me about how he can't like music anymore(!), because all of it sounds the same(!!!), now that he's gotten older.)

    Tell your co-worker to explore a new genre of music.
    Speaking of which, the world is coming to an end:

    I imagine announcing your intention to exercise the opposite choice -- let alone carry it out -- would have even more deleterious effects.
