Rather, we never get accustomed to learn to embrace time and its ghastly truths of life. For, only one is the ultimate truth : TIME 
It stands for none, drags everyone along with it. Today I am in a park, I see virtual AI bots, on each tree bark, waiting for someone to start interacting. I have uploaded my dog's profile in it. Mincy, a golden-retriever, who would have been 45 today, greets me with her joyful tail-wags. Isn't she the cutest, I exclaim. I pretend to throw a bone afar, for her to run virtually and fetch it. On the other tree bark, is a man, in his twenties I presume, talking to another man on the bot. They are flirting, looking into their eyes and asking if they can talk again tomorrow at the same time.
