Unique Experiences

Capitalism can be nasty. As the production of goods increases in efficiency, more people can afford to have the set of essential elements that make life comfortable and pleasurable. Eventually, most people in the world would have all those crucial items for a low price, effectively stalling capitalism.

Capitalism then turns to experiences as new good to desire, which has the advantage of being ephemeral and cannot be accumulated until satiation. Yet the same process that makes products cheaper can also be used for to make experiences accessible, lowering their capitalistic value over the long term, again stalling capitalism.

And this is capitalism check-mate, the creation of UNIQUE EXPERIENCES as goods. Their uniqueness prevents their mass-production, and thus, they are goods that are wanted, yet entirely ephemeral, and never quite affordable.

For capitalism to signal the world the existence of these unique experiences, it must build and machine to broadcast a constant flux of people enjoying their unique experiences, a moving target that cannot be wholly reached. Nowcasting an individualized present that cannot be thoroughly enjoyed in the present by others.
