But I wouldn't give up my 1960's - 1970's childhood, so I guess it's a tradeoff.
Yeah i definitely miss all the good rock music from the 70's (Bad Company, ZZ TOP, Led Zeppelin, Boston, AC/DC, Triumph, Foreigner etc.)

I don't think I'd have preferred living in any previous period of time but I also think I'd like to live in a pro-active space exploration era. I'm ready to give up this 20th century experience and I'm willing to take a chance on my energies returning as a space cadet.

I would certainly agree with that, and have commented as such from time to time. Add to that, the older we get - the longer we live and have the benefit of life sustaining medical developments. Including recent developments in a vaccine to help with Alzheimer's.

Not that I want to be old. I still want to allow my 'spiritual...' energies to have an opportunity to return to life as a space cadet.
