I am currently reading the Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
I find it incredibly fascinating how Phillip K. Dick found a way to elaborate the meaning of life within a story about a fictional future world.
Money seems to be the ultimate goal for the modernist, with it they can explore the no-holds-barred reality in which Life is a sand-box/free-roam Game.
I do happen to be on that side of reality that encourages hedonism, only to a certain point, however.
Love, and our place in the cosmos will be forgotten if we rush through it without taking a deeper look at people and see them for the humanity they represent and not for the flaws they contain.
Life, in its entirety, can be bought out and sold, but Love in its ENTIRETY does not seem to be containable; it is like a transcendental musical symmetry, inexplicable to the average eye, but kaleidoscopic to the rose-colored lenses we find in romancing another human being/ caring for living and non-living creatures and creations, respectively.
So, read the book and you'll have a better PICTURE of what I mean to say here.
P.S. you have a job to do, creatively, if you want our species to survive but that doesn't mean you have to DO it. hahaha
