For me capitalism flatters and surfs on human desires for greatness. The energy being only the armed arm and not the decision maker.
Answer his questions and you will understand:
I win what ? stock options?
Where does capitalism come from?
From the desire of certain men, of budding "Gentlemen" of a few centuries ago.
In fact greed = a desire and the need for reassurance (fear of missing out), another desire.
Always the man and his desires at the center of the scene.
What is the deep definition of desire?
I say Tendency which leads to wanting to obtain.
This supposes beforehand a "center" which wishes to obtain satisfaction (or to flee from suffering), it supposes a living being which desires.
Who of human desire and the Big Bang was there first?
The Big bang of course. It is the initial framework in which we were born and in which we evolve in concert with the framework.
The human has this particular that he can choose to follow his desire or not, therefore the human can choose to use energy or not, if he has it, of course.
Fundamentally, man is not subject to anything at all, he is the plaything of his unconsciousness in the face of his desires.
By increasing his consciousness, the human being extracts himself from determinisms, he becomes free to follow his desires or not.
Desires emanate spontaneously in the brain. They are the result of cultural learning, the fruit of the response of this knowledge to external or internal stimuli.
The stage before the actors, the Big Bang before the humans, but the actors are basically free to do whatever they want on the stage, within the limits of the stage.
So we could say that the scene dictates its law by imposing limits (which seems to be your point of view) but it does not impose in any way to approach the limits, to exceed them. or to remain on the reserve. It is the human who chooses.
Already said, if no humans, carbonaceous fossils would still be underground.
Always man, his desires and his conscience (unconsciousness ) in the center of the frame.
The frame has no problem, only the man has.
