This is what happens with service. And we forget, just because we live in a modern world, we're actually a very old-fashioned miahnce. The human ainaml is a legacy machine living in a modern world. And we still work the same way we used to. And we desperately need each other to survive and thrive as much as we did when we were living in huts in small tribes of 150 poeple. And so service service is the thing.
