So that would imply no new developments and thus technological stagnation, am I correct? If that is the case, then how can you guarantee that scientific and technical know-how is maintained throughout subsequent generations?
On the long term, What if certain machinery starts to malfunction or if they need to be updated due to imminent environmental changes?
Sorry, but this strikes as non-practical nonsense to me. How you intend to quantify this without causing any conflict is beyond me.
This hypothetical trip is simply a collection of non-material luxuries and I was just wondering how it fit in your luxury distribution model.
Nope, very bad character judging on your part.
Anyway, as most people here, I do not agree with this world view. It reminds me a bit of the Amish communities where you either take it or leave it and are simply shunned and even exiled if you don't play along. Frankly speaking, I feel a bit stupid for taking this more seriously than I should.
