Chapter 2 What is a society without social- and environmental crises like?
(1) Infinite stability means fulfillment on a day-to-day basis
Infinite life is synonymous with life that is complete on a day-to-day basis. That is, in a world where stability lasts infinitely without crises, we are not buffeted by problems carried over from yesterday. Problems are not put off till the next day. Each day is complete without strain and without waste.
In a world of infinite stability, we do not push ourselves too hard or make crooked moves, relying on “symptomatic treatments.” We do not take a winning-is-everything attitude, resorting to sheer force. We are not overwhelmed by yesterday’s sorrows. We do not carry our anxieties and grudges over to tomorrow. We make our lives as full and complete as possible each and every day.
