Abstract

Everybody can just keep track of so many things. But for a human being, there are a lot of areas of concern. Let’s start with a person, having inherited $50 million, and thus independently wealthy. What is he worried about?
  • How is my health?

  • How is my relationship, my family evolving?

  • How is my acceptance in society, club, church?

  • Leisure, sports, hobbies, art.

  • Dark, hidden desires. Nobody will admit to them, but they are there, and not only in the oval office.
