Seems like any attempt to further entrench a "me getting mine" worldview can only lead further into delusion and the suffering borne of any kind of ego-clinging
What I've seen doesn't start from the sort of similar viewpoint of kamma, for the purpose of understanding our situation and doing something about suffering.
Instead, it looks like it's about pleasure seeking.
So from wrong intention, wrong view, and the whole thing is flawed.
In my opinion, anyway.
This is very much a popular thing right now.
I work as a captioner for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing, and one of the PBS specials I captioned this year was on this kind of thing.
They tried to wrap it up in science about how we only perceive a minute percentage of our sensory input, and something about quantum mechanics. Not sure how it was all supposed to tie together.
It seemed like spiritual materialism (as mentioned) being justified with the materialist reductionism that characterizes the Western worldview in our day and age.
Not to sound too snobby
