Interesting problem, isn't it? Humanity has relentless drive and no plan. We're running at full speed toward no destination. What will success look like when we achieve it? We don't have a clue. Do you see why I use the Alice in Wonderland metaphor so much?

“Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
"I don't much care where –"
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go.”
