City folk, or anyone who grows up in a high density culture are used to and act at higher tempos than country folk.

Downside is a higher metabolic need for meaning. Like a sword thirsting for blood or a gun in a story that begs to be used.

“I/me” constructs are useful tools for ratcheting up tempo because at their core they can’t be satisfied. They provide a sense of north but isn’t “true” north.

“Original sin” glorifies a single direction so that the mind can be put on zombie autopilot.
