You can see which societies are post-scarcity based on the cost of ads to target those people.
Attention is all that is left of value in a post-scarcity society. Not everyone lives in this post-scarcity world (yet), but we are getting closer every day.
I find it hard to concentrate too with so many interesting things going on in the world. Even the memes tell something about what is going on in the complex world we live in.
Recently I have been trying to sit down and read, without distraction, long articles and papers. I find my mind flitting to somewhere else and I fold my hands to remind myself that I shouldn’t be distracted. This is a muscle I hope to rebuild. It isn’t easy.
