As a kid, I used to often think about a law that will be introduced worldwide to stop any kind of innovation, the world will conclude that life and technology is good as-is, and that any more of it will hurt as in term of resources usage and societal dynamics.
Now thinking about it seriously, something like this might make sense. Technology for the most part accelerated resources usage per capita, we are for sure living comfier lives, but that’s objective not subjective. And what’s matter is the subjective. Are we more happy? are our lives more fulfilling? are we more joyful?
Also do we wanna do what we want, or what’s good for us? we for sure want more, but is more good for us? I don’t now I am asking too.
