No progress toward anything

[ #29036 ]

Dear Log,

«But synthetic worlds, he admits, have grown so powerful and their architecture so intricate that they are now in direct competition with our daily lives, and the growing exodus or migration of young adults into these mythical worlds must reflect the tiresome, monotone worlds that the players inhabit in the real world. Their online existence, he says, "is better than the alternative, that is, a daily life on Earth, which seems to show no progress towards anything."»

Yeah, things here on Earth suck, but the Thai food here is better than you'll get in Hyperlandya or VR Tlön or wherever. Assuming you're not dirt poor or anything.
