When we look for time
Yesterday, I started by telling you about your ability to create time, let’s see where we got to. After vaguely mentioning voluntary simplicity, let’s speak about evolution now. Using passing time to keep things as the status quo may be a way to live, but that doesn’t get us anywhere. Let’s take an example using water supply. If you have to walk to a water source every day, you could dig a well to reach the water table. That would take time, but if you have to walk two and a half miles to reach a minimally pure water source, by doing the maths, you would come to the conclusion that investing 100 hours in building a well could save you 2-3 hours per day. This will be paid off in the following 3-6 months.
This water supply example, and many other examples, are now in the past. Today, we reap the benefits of evolution, which has allowed us to reach a comfort level superior to that of our ancestors, and even different from one region to another in the world. But what do we do when things we can improve seem to become scarce? Is there an end to this quest for making things easier?
