Is there anything else? It's all just a game for status and

A human can only consume limited quantities of food, sex, and shelter,
everything else is just part of the game. Evolutionarily, sex would be
the goal of this all of competition of course, but all the billionares
seem to have few children and a singular mate. This means the natural
order of things has been changed a bit, or that you just never can
recover from being the omega male in high school, reguardless of how
much money you get. It really is supposed to be FUM *laughs*

The lower profile you can keep, the better. Until you are ready to come
out of hiding and shread everything around you into bits, just lay low.
It's far easier for people to destroy, and very few are willing to stick
their neck out and do real cration level stuff. Easier to just "copy and
paste" your way though life and do what everyone else does, and ride the
waves of tech hype into historical oblivion.
