Re: 1190: "Time"

Oh hey I'll jump in on this one. I think "I need challenges in order to be interesting" is a viewpoint that is particular to a population of people who have rarely if ever had to worry about starving to death. I'm not saying it's invalid: I'm fully willing to accept that you find the stru...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Here, however, it's interesting that you're mostly focusing on need as a driving force and stagnation as the great danger. You don't think we'd keep learning and doing because it's fun? Maybe not.
