They say that necessity is the mother of invention. If this is true, then dissatisfaction must be necessity's step-sister. Sick of getting up to turn off the lights? Buy the Clapper. Tired of being an awkward weirdo with no social skills? Invent the OASIS, the hyper-realistic MMO game in Ready Player One and wait while millions of other people, each dissatisfied with reality for their own reasons, come join you. Virtual reality fills up fast, especially when it provides an escape from a world everyone just can't stand.
