Agreed. Problem Is Growing But Possible Solution Visible
Not read the book but agree with your thesis. Think you are onto something that may be bigger than you suggest. On my Medium publication, A Passion to Evolve, just added two articles you might find relevant to this problem as a bigger issue. One is my personal example of the problem entitled, Addiction to Infinite Present is Spreading . The second one is about problem on a societal scale entitled, Infinite Present — Our Digital Dark Age , which suggests a possible solution on the horizon.
