There will always be people that like thinking and problem solving or just straight up doing things because they like doing it regardless of what problems machines solve and what society has tantrums about what people "should" be or like doing XD


I agree, but I wonder if the level of their ability will regress closer to the average, as the average itself becomes a higher volume peak. Would Usain Bolt run as fast if he had to only compete against runners from 100 years ago? I don't know, but I suspect that if there isn't some pressure, people by nature will take it easy on average.

There will always be pressure from somewhere. The amount of pressure I constantly put on myself is way more than anyone else will ever be able to put on me XD and statistically I can't be the only one.

Yes, I know this. But what if the amount of pressure you put on yourself is also influenced by some kind of group normal. If the normal changed, would you still apply the same pressure? Now, you might now, but what about a generation of people who were raised in the changed normal?

Would have to find a character who does that and jump into their head to find out. I only somewhat care about what other people do 😅
