We are addicted to speed. Why? Speed is more fun!
What is the downside to speed?
I understand the proponents of the “slow” movement. But truth be told most of us prefer speed. We don’t wanna wait a week for a delivery, we prefer the 2-day Amazon prime delivery (or even now … sometimes the same-day delivery!) In truth we would probably prefer immediate delivery— the second you order it, it immediately materializes before your very eyes.
Why do we hate waiting?
To wait is generally boring. I think there is perhaps some human bias of mechanistic activity:
Immediate cause and effect.
For example, I flip a page of a book and it immediately turns. I hate the lag of a digital reading device. Or I hate when playing video games and there is any lag or latency. Lag and latency is unnatural — there is no “lag” in real life.
