Maybe this is just evolution in place. Some people strive to actually _do_ something, most people are fine with just existing.

These are just my raw and uninformed thoughts but,

All of the things which at one point in time were biologically advantageous, things which create addictive habits, things like validation, new information, new stimulus, judgement, interaction, whatever. All of the little dopamine producing buttons. All of these things which were at one point a great advantage to have in the "wild", are now chains in a monetary system.

It's not about doing something or existing, that brings the discussion down to the "Most people are NPCs" level. I would argue that any person, given the opportunity, would rather be striving to _do_ something, but most are unable to.
