interests

[…it is enough to see how people live, what constitutes the aim of their existence, the object of their desires, passions, and aspirations of what they think, of what they talk, what they worship.]

Consider what the cultured humanity of our time spends money on: even leaving the war out, what commands the highest price; where the biggest crowds are. If we think for a moment about these questions it becomes clear that humanity, as it is now, with the interests it lives by, cannot expect to have anything different from what it has.

G. I. Gurdjieff quoted ‘In Search of The Miraculous’ by P. D. Ouspensky.
