Waiting carries great stress if productivity equals success.
Is it a capitalistic burden or a gift from prior generations?
Does it create more productivity or just fill the void of waiting?
Are we frightened of what our minds will do or just so well-trained that productivity provides a diversion from the pain?
Should we shed this burden and if so, how? It’s already been passed to the next generation.
Perhaps waiting and productivity can co-exist. But that luxury will depend on the hospitality of Earth.
