It's not a condemnation. If society has in fact collectively decided that matters of origin and purpose are not all that important, than it is I who is obsolete. A relic of archaic thinking and meaningless priorities. Perhaps profit and distraction (and as you point out survival) are the only things that matter in the modern world. Could it be that contemplation of and search for true understanding and purpose is just another distraction from it? Perhaps dead end jobs, financial worries, and Facebook are the deeper meaning of life. If so, I am obsolete indeed.
