All Consuming

A reminder to myself: while production can be mechanized, automated, and otherwise relegated to machines and computers, CONSUMPTION still requires the desire of the living human being. Thus, the thrust for human beings to live longer lives, not necessarily as "productive" members of society, but rather as "consumptive", or at the very least, "prosumptive" members of society.

Of course, it is the hysteria of aging that is one of the seeds of this desire, so we end up with up with a very profitable symbiotic arrangement, indeed.
