The good life is not an engineering achievement. The good life is not achieved by being in control of the various parameters of a technical project. The good life is not a goal which can be achieved by clearing defining the goal, and then systematically setting out to get to the goal through a series of carefully planned and executed technical steps. The good life is not the fruit/reward of a paradigm in which control plays a major role. Control of the steps in an engineering/technical project does not lead to the good life. Preoccupations with and fixation upon the good life as if it can be defined and then achieved through technical means of control---are preoccupations and fixations of addictive people, and lead to the characteristically dysfunctional life styles of addictive people and their codependent supporters.
