I gotta tell ya, I applaud your sentiment, but no matter how "straight" the human race EVER gets itself, if they start burning money in the streets, when they could be burning "one" made from something else then that's total dark ages bro ! !
I suspect there's a conspiracy with food too.
You can't just buy it once, and be done.
No, you have to eat food and even drink stuff at least to some degree once or twice a day.
If they could just design the food to last like maybe a week, that would be better and it wouldn't be so disgusting having to put stuff inside your face, mash it up, swallow it, and then, even more disgusting what happens later.
I think quality food that lasts a week or even a month should be more important than gadgets.
Maybe we could have luxury food items that are engineered by hand where you won't have to eat anything for a whole year?
Otherwise, this whole food design where it has to be eaten every single day is just unsustainable.
If the above is not sarcasm, the human gut was designed to consume food every day, all day, as humans first only ate nuts, berries, tubers, and seeds, so once meat was ingested, humans had time to do other things, which eventually lead to the space shuttle.
