With a society based around Nanotechnology, people won't have to work in order to earn enough money for food, shelter, etc. In order to live, people wouldn't have to do anything. You wouldn't have to walk, work, talk, wipe your bum, or anything. We could potentially be a planet full of Anna Nicole Smiths. I did a presentation on Nanotechnology in my Cisco class and someone pointed that out. What would be the point in living? What would people do to occupy themselves? What would you do? Well... what is there to do? - Party - Destroy yourself and others - Improve yourself I think that's what Star Trek is about. They're just always cruising around trying to help people/aliens and improve themselves.
