Future shock

Elon Musk announced this week that workers at Twitter need to get back to long hours at high intensity in the office.

Rocketman, the man seemingly single-handly shaping our future was telling us our future was going to be a slog. Time and space constraints are back. And so, it seems is the notion that we can sustain high-intensity efforts for sustained periods of time.

Futurists concern themselves with the “three P’s and a W” i.e possible, probable, and preferable plus wildcards.

When someone speaks of the future it’s worth asking which one of the three P’s and W they think they are referring to. My guess is Rocketman was talking about what was preferable not about his desire to rewrite the science of bioenergetics.
