The ripples that one leaves in one’s wake are evidence of one’s existence. Should that influence endure for a few thousand years, then it is correct to say that the idea of YOU has been relevant for that entire period of time, even if you are no longer physically present or even known by name.

I’m shooting for tens of thousands years myself. There have been many such immortals. This modern age could accommodate many more, perhaps even every single one of us. What if we could all perpetually influence our collective destiny and accelerate towards a cultural singularity? A “big band” of human evolution through culture. We could become our own source; godhood in effect.

Odd words to come from a man who enjoys human contact in… measured doses. Also, surprising that I would subject my entire species to my unending influence.
