What is "work" anyway?
It's likely that AI and robotics could give us a reprieve from manual labor, but I doubt that we will take advantage of the leisure time.
I run an online business that doesn't require me to do much work. My goal is to get to the point where I do very little work at all, and spend most of my time travelling. Why do people set up their entire life for toil? In an age where you can earn in an hour enough to eat for the day, and in another hour enough to house yourself, why are people at work 12 hours a day?
I seriously don't understand the mentality.
