Brilliant read! Shades of DFW in the writing though I thought the point is being made a bit too obviously. Disappointed you didn’t include a reference to reading about more productivity and optimal living tips on Medium app. ;)
That said, what really is the point here? That we opt for technology too much in pursuit of optimal living (what does that mean?) or that we are not able to be free from dehumanising technology in this day and age? Or that modern technology is paradoxically dehumanising in its efforts to improve humanity?
