"the obsession with constructing futures at the expense of the present" - my favorite line. I think there is another level to being a technologist. One where you are enlightened to the the reality outside of your little "hustle bubble" but choose the life regardless. Because of love. Because of passion for building things, and being busy and trying to uncover the next innovation, but realising that this isn't everything. That the world faces far more real strife than my late night code binge. I prefer stoic meditations. The hellenic views which formed very much in tandem with the advent of algebra in babylon.

That philosophy centers on control of your own mind and therefore control of the universe, because the universe only exists in many ways, as we construct it, in our own minds.

But that's just me.
