Finished a couple weeks ago, but my god, the misery.
It's a surreal depiction of our world outside the matrix. And yes, the outlook is about as grim as it gets. We are evolving. Homosexuality is being normalized. Drug use will become just another freedom like alcohol that should be managed responsibly. Religion will be passe'. Sanctity of marriage will be a thing of the past.
Nate's smiling spirit offers some hope of life after death but we all know it's just a fantasy. What we are left with is the stark reality that regardless of our enlightened society, it all ends the same way with death. The moral of the story, if in fact there is one, is that life is what you make it. It's all the time you have. Your only memory is the legacy you leave behind which for most of us is destined to fade away.
