  • The idea of restoration is not new. Life, as it happens, is full of accidents, mishaps, and untoward events, from breaking a tool to growing old and dying, and the desire to avoid the consequences of these events by reversing or undoing them in order to return to some happier previous or “original” condition seems to be as old as our species. It is the root aspiration behind religion, that oldest of human institutions. It is also a constant theme of both public and private life, and it may even be grounded in the capacity for self-repair that is a peculiarity of life itself....

  • Automation is closely related to the modern need for sustainable development in the 21st century. One of the principles of sustainability is “Doing More with Less” which in other words, is also one of the goals of automation.

In taking this question further, the doctor-poet, Dannie Abse, musing on it in 1993, noted that: “imaginative daydreaming is an escape from the precipitous pessimism of living or dealing with problems and the sphere of sorrows, and it is used to restore balance” (op.cit.).
