Gain divided by distance or time, compared to gain divided by distance or time.
If a gain is far away (happening to others, perhaps even strangers), or will take long before you see it, it may not be selected over a smaller gain which is closer, happening now, to you.
“Well, how come you only want tomorrow
With it's promise of something hard to do”
- David Bowie, Teenage Wildlife
Isn’t that the truth? The human mind is so effin perverse.
For one example, I could not go back to film photography even if it was still better quality. It’s just way too much work. And at the same time, digital is almost *too easy*!
Why do we value anything simply because it’s hard to do? It’s insane, it should be the result which matters. Communication or beauty should be what matters, not the barriers to achieve them.
