The wealthy have always preferred space and the view.
You wonder why someone would pay for a suite, own a house with more space that can be filled by people, buy a bigger yacht, a bigger private jet or a whole island. It is all about space.
You can almost say they’re claustrophobic. Which might be why they have a higher probability of suicide when they are jailed.
The wealthy hate the ground floor of buildings. Before lifts, most luxurious buildings were built with the first and second floor designed for the wealthy. Everyone else stayed on the ground floor or higher floors where the stress of the stairs would totally wear you out.
When lifts were introduced, the wealthy immediately started redesigning buildings to ensure they had the best view – penthouses.
It is no surprise that the world’s billionaires are showing more optimism for space exploration than ocean exploration. Space exploration offers both space and a view like no other.
Hate it or love it, but the crazy passions of the wealthy, finance the greatest breakthroughs of humanity. Their thirst for space and the view might just be the saving grace of posterity from environmental disaster.
