I agree that one does not lead to the other absolutely, but one does not exist without the other. How else do you have emotional or cultural stability without stability of your life-support system?

I could have an emotional fulfillment being tied to a 'euphoria-machine' [1] or aiding a net negative addiction. Any group could have cultural fulfillment bringing about their version of the Apocalypse [2,3] such that our deity hopefully judges us as just and takes us to a paradise and destroys all else.

The rub isn't just OUR emotional stability, but the general perpetual state of living emotional stability and fulfillment. Its not just our current cultural stability, but the general and perpetual state of having a healthy and empowering culture. Those two, by definition, are never achievable for large time scales without us being smart about the laws of thermodynamics and minimizing entropy. Otherwise we burn out in a brilliant hedonistic dance today and the terrible bill is paid by the youngest and least benefited.
