I think it has. I mean, a significant amount of the population rents space so that they can store stuff they don't even use
. That concept is astounding when you step back to it. However, it's actually the digital era that has moved us to super and hyper abundance. You can take almost any commodity that use to take labour and have it return astronomical value. Anything we write can be distributed to billions
of people. A hundred hours of labour into a fanfic can return hundreds of millions of entertainment
value. I'm not talking cost, but consumption value.
That's the end game, in my opinion. At the same time, the value of my "100 hours" is virtually nothing. Probably less than a dollar. That's because everyone else values it so little, because everyone can produce it.
