I think it's rather provincial to say that interesting things only happen
on the scale of minutes, I think interesting things happen on the scale of
nanoseconds and picoseconds and femtoseconds too. And you're unlikely to be
unique, it's a reasonable assumption that if you were uploaded then other
minds will have been uploaded too, and they will be just as fast as you.
And other minds can sometimes be interesting.
