I used to eat food mechanically, to survive, but in the last year I've had so much good food!
I have to get off this island! I can't take it anymore. I'm going back to climb a mountain refreshing and clear in Taiwan.

Food and Travel are expensive highs. While not as pricey as cocaine or meth, they are nonetheless all typical consumptive highs.

Rarely part of the same conversation are the productive highs such as CsĂ­kszentmihlyi's Flow, communing with someone cared for, or the dopamine hit from completing a goal.

How do we architect our lives so that the productive addictions dominate?

Which is really just asking:

  1. What are the dimensions of this space?
  2. Can we cobble together the basics of controlled flight?
