"An autotelic person needs few material possessions and little entertainment, comfort, power, or fame because so much of what he or she does is already rewarding. Because such persons experience flow in work, in family life, when interacting with people, when eating, even when alone with nothing to do, they are less dependent on the external rewards that keep others motivated to go on with a life composed of dull and meaningless routines. They are more autonomous and independent because they cannot be as easily manipulated with threats or rewards from the outside. At the same time, they are more involved with everything around them because they are fully immersed in the current of life."

Normally I窶m the die-hard idealist, but if I was a bird I would eat the bread on the table and accidentally poop while on the way out. I don窶t think we窶re giving the bird enough credit here in this picture. This just isn't all that practical, convenient, or safe for our health.
This has to be my most favorite GIF ever.
Hmm...Orwellian. This is something to be cautious about for the future, but this video makes me want to look more into both sides - global embrace of it/useful functions vs corporate control - more than anything.
