Yep, which was what I was getting at that I could reduce my direct consumption to 1/10th of average, but it would be a drop in the bucket of my overall indirect consumption.

I work from home, which means an office building and all the supporting infrastructure didn't have to be made for me. I expect an increasing amount of people will be working from home, especially if we vastly expand automation.
