Our culture worships efficiency as the high mark of civilization. We bemoan any Amazon order that doesn’t hit our porch within twenty-four hours. We exhort Netflix to post an entire series at a time, so we can binge watch without having to wait a week (the horror!) between episodes. We instruct our music apps to play the exact song we want at the exact moment we want to hear it. We decline to drive when we can DoorDash our dinner. And of course, we absolutely must have the latest iPhone with the swiftest chip, connected to an internet connection so fast we can check our email tomorrow.
