He describes the continuing administration of person attentiveness and the impairment of conception in the obligatory exercises of up to date technological tradition. while, he exhibits that human sleep, as a restorative withdrawal that's intrinsically incompatible with 24/7 capitalism, issues to different extra ambitious and collective refusals of world-destroying styles of progress and accumulation.
